If all you want is caviar, with impeccable service---then this is the place. Otherwise, the food is quite simply, not good. I ordered 3 oz. of Royal Transmontanus,(A sustainably raised American sturgeon) for $65, while my husband and daughter ordered 3 oz. of just Transmontanus (A younger fish.) for $45, I believe. I could tell the difference, they really couldn't. I also ordered an appetizer portion of the linguine with parmesan and a scattering of Transmontanus caviar. The parmesan was a glob of glue. I had to remove it to eat the pasta. Yuck. My husband had borscht , which he said was sorta okay. Of course, we had a nice champagne to go with the caviar. The whole evening was incredibly expensive. The tasting menu, consisting of more of the bad food was $250 pp. The Art Deco decor at one time must have been beautiful Now the upholstery is a ragged and the seats dumpy from so many tushies. I won't be going back. Instead, I'll buy a nice, big tin from a reputable caviar company, a bottle of champagne to go with, and stay home.
Great treat for me and my wife to go. We did the tasting w/wine pairings... Not sure if it was worth the $450 for both.
In any case I would recommend to take off "bucket" list. :)
Do carriage ride in Central park! :)
Day was Great!
While the place is elegant , it is tired. That shows in the food as well: the cavair was tired, not bright nor full of flavor. Most of the items on the half bottle wine list were no longer available. The foie gras and duck confit sandwich had the potential to be great , but didn't make it. Service was just ok. Won't bother going back. Better choice on Madison Ave for same price
The place to go for caviar. Perfect for an intimate dinner with a friend or significant other. Very beautiful decor and ambience. The tasting menu was impeccable, presentation of each course almost to beautiful to eat. Portions were perfect, and flavors were out of this world. Couldn't have asked for a better first time experience!
Once again, fantastic. The new chef, Richard, is creative and inventive. Everything we ate was delicious. We will be back
A beautiful setting for an excellent dinner. We went there pre-concert (Carnegie Hall is a block away). It was early, so the restaurant was quite empty, but that added to its appeal for us. My wife had one of the caviar combinations, which she enjoyed immensely, while I ate delicious baked Hamachi from the standard menu. expensive, but highly worthwhile.
Caviar was good. Food from menu terrible. Staff courteous but not trained or knowledgable.
Could not eat my entree.
