Considering what one pays for a meal in the city, this was a bargain, and I would come back....also, My GOD their Truffle Fries...that's all I gotta say.

Drove home with my ears ringing like I had just left a concert at MSG. Woke up with a sore throat from shouting across the table too. Service was lacking because there were so many people and had to remind the waitress about getting our second round of drinks. She tells me that the bar is too busy right now...anyway we get our drinks once our dinner was done and plates cleared. Also, our appetizer came out with out main courses. Thankfully the food was good otherwise it would've been a really terrible experience.

I actually have no idea whether the food is good or the service is good or anything else. We sat down and realized we would have a terrible headache if we stayed so we got up and left.

Nothing explained on the website and they wouldn't work with us to get special at the table. Business meeting and wasn't go to move to the bar to get the special. Disappointed as I like the food and overall atmosphere.

We went there because we heard a lot about their Christmas decorations and they are indeed really nice. Unfortunately the food wasn’t good and is SOOOO expensive that’s crazy. We ordered a Caesar salad with chicken for 24$!!! I am still looking for the parmigianno and the croutons that were promised on the menu. It was basically ONLY chicken and lettuce. What a shame! How can you make someone pay 24$ for lettuce and chicken?! Noticing that, I decided to ask for an explanation. The lady told me she could not do anything for me and that I had to see with the guy over there. I assumed he was the manager. After waiting for 10 minutes I finally managed to talk to him. When I asked why there was only 2 pieces of crouton and almost no cheese in the salad, he answered « I didn’t make the food! » in the end he brought 5 pieces of croutons in a new bowl…. How can you be so rude !! That’s just a tourist trap do not waste your time and money there !

That’s a no for me, sorry. Portions were enormous, ordered the calamari as a starter and got 10 rings EACH?? Just got coffee afterwards because we were stuffed. Calamari weren’t very tasty either, no seasoning, dry crust and a weird sauce served with it. Expected way more. Service was neat.

I met a friend who lives in the city and perhaps she used to this. We were seated next to wall in one side so that was good. The other side was a full table of 4. I love the restaurant.

We heard about this restaurant and their decorations. When we came in the decorations were great everything after was horrible. We had a 745 reservation and were told to go to the bar it would be ready in 10 mins. We went to the bar and got two drinks which were good however the bar was filthy, everything was sticking to it. About 45 mins later they told us someone was paying and we were going to be seated soon. We walk over to see they moved a group of girls to our "table" and they were trying to seat us at the table they were at previously that was barely cleaned. After waiting 45 minutes that was beyond unacceptable. I will never come back here decorations are nice but overrated, customer service is everything and they need a crash in it. They only reason I would give them a star is the decorations. If you go to see the decoration grab a drink and leave, not worth anything more!

However the food is less than mediocre for the price point. 20 bucks for a basic burger. I've had cheaper burgers in the city that were spectacular. Service was slow and lacking. My smoked old Fashion was also meh. Really disappointing.

Food was low quality and service was practically non-existent requiring me to steal 2 napkins off an adjacent table. The place is made for Instagram as we saw 2 photoshoots during our time. There are options for your dollar.

I arrived 5 minutes before 8pm with my daughter and they had a rough time seating us. After they sat us, we did not get a menu, water or utensils till 20 minutes after….after we gave our orders, waiter came back about 15 min after to tell us they had nothing that we ordered…so we changed the entire dinner that we wanted….then after that, another 30 minutes happened and we did not get our food!! The worst thing of it all was that they said they did not have the French onion soup, meanwhile I saw every other table ordering the soup and they got it!! So, after a whole hour of waiting for food, it never arrived!! Me and my daughter just got up and left. No one bothered to ask if we were okay, or apologized for wait times. StAff seemed pretty rude and did not value the service I was bringing to their business. Me and my daughter were very excited as it is a Christmas themed restaurant for this time of year. She was very hungry and very disappointed…we took our business to Applebees instead!! I do not recommend this place to anyone! Such bad customer service. Trash.

The hostess started by saying we didn’t have a reservation in a very rude way, and by the way, it was the rudest hostess I’ve ever had to deal with. She then found our reservation, but said that was no table available. She said basically it was not her problem and it was up to us to stay and wait, or leave. They completely ignored our reservation and we had to wait in a “waiting room” which was huge and full of people waiting. We tried to order drinks from the bar there, and they didn’t offer any of the drinks in the menu, WHAT? We asked the ‘hostess’ about the possibility of ordering food from there and she said “I DONT KNOW”. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? They were practically begging us to leave and I can’t express how disrespectful this is… that is crazy, even for NYC. I sincerely hope everyone decides NOT to go to this place. RUN AWAY!
