I went it for lunch with a colleague and we decided to try the Prix Fixe lunch. Our appetizers were quite good but our bread plates and appetizers were cleared way too quickly. The waiter kept coming over asking if we were done and it made us very uncomfortable. We both ordered larvae (branzino) which had SO many bones we had to stop eating it. In fact, one was caught in my throat and I had to ask for more bread to swallow it because it had been cleared. Do not serve this fish if there are so many small bones as it is dangerous.

Wonderful to have fresh, well-prepared European seafood — Dorado and Loup de Mer. Great service and attractive, lively ambience. Definitely will be on my list for returns when back in New York.

Met for a double date and was seated by the window to watch the snow fall. It was beautiful, great venue and great food/drink.
Recommend for sure!

The food is incredible as is the service. I ate there Friday and Saturday. Friday they had the price fix menu a bargain which included an appetizer, main dish and dessert. There were so many options to choose between. I had the pasta with lobster which was what brought me back!

I work near this restaurant and have started to become a regular here for business lunches. When my dad said he was coming into town and was craving seafood I knew this was the perfect place for dinner. We had a small table but the service and food was fantastic. Highly recommend the Avra Chips and the Grilled Calamari to start, and the Halibut as an entree. We topped everything off with the Lava Cake and the Greek Yogurt for dessert. The Greek Yogurt was the most authentic tasting greek yogurt I've ever had in the US. Our server was absolutely awesome and super helpful in helping us choose the perfect options to complete the meal. Will definitely return again very soon!

Food was amazing—as always — but waiter’s service not great. Mostly ignored us, was indifferent when asked where apps were, and never came back to check on table. Was there w clients who noticed and remarked. Very loud at lunch. Summers are better as you can sit outside.

This was the second time for my wife and I and it was even better than the first. The menu is structured to give plenty of choice while working to a 5 course plan. Well paced and the service was attentive without being overbearing. We sat up on the mezzanine level and it creates a great ambiance. Not cheap but so one of our best ever dining experiences.

We went thinking they had a restaurant week menu; they didn't. However, they do offer a 3 course lunch for $29.50, which is a good deal. The food is very good and well prepared. Very fresh fish and good side dishes. We did not have a very good experience with the wait staff, however. We were rushed through the meal; both the appetizer and main were basically taken away from us with forks still in. I am not sure if this was because the staff was turning off and the waiter wanted to tip out the rest of the staff or he just wanted to leave, but it really put a damper on what could have been a very nice lunch.

The food was great and so was the atmosphere. My mom had glass in her ice water and had to spit it out. She then cut her finger, so that was a bit unfortunate.

This was about my 5th time at this restaurant. Food is always solid and the place is very comfortable and soothing......and I'm not even drinking:)
For some reason, this time I thought the service was off. Our server did not do anything special except try and sell us another bottle of wine when our first bottle was still half full!! The experience left a sour note on my taste buds.
