Really fresh and delicious food. The arugula burrata salad was great with the dates, the burgers were very juice, and the cocktails were excellent.

This place is really cute...lovely lighting and ambiance. The food is good; and the service was very good. However, the tables are so close together that anytime one of our "neighbors" wanted to get in or out, we had to physically move our table ourselves. This should not happen and was not necessary. If the "powers that be" just had one less table along the banquette, guests would be able to enjoy their experience without interruption. I appreciate the fact that you want to make more money, but at what cost? Why do that to guests and risk their not coming back?

we've eaten here several times, both pre- and post-theater. Service has always been attentive and quick. The food is great - burgers cooked properly, salads fresh and seasonal. Drinks are good, too - the usual mid-town prices, though. Only drawback is that it's a small space and can feel a little cramped if you're not one of the super-thin.

Decent pre-theater option in Times Square, though our table was 10 minutes late and since the restaurant was so small we had to wait on a staircase next to the door while it was 30 degrees out.

Need some sound dampening, very loud due to small space, hard to have a conversation. However, the food is very unique and terrific.

I was dining alone while on a business trip and this place was recommended to me by the hotel. I arrived right after the theatre rush, which was perfect. I sat at the bar, had a unique caesar salad - made with kale and shredded brussel sprouts - topped it with salmon, which was cooked perfectly.

The restaurant is small which is part of its charm. It is apparently known for their brunches but I was not in NY long enough to check it out.

We found it as a last minute option nearby but it blew away our expectations! A quant restaurant with fantastic food and service. The vibe was romantic and chilled and we would definitely go again. We wished we discovered it earlier so we could have gone twice. Definitely our favourite meal in NYC. Would recommend to everyone.

We had dinner on a Sunday evening after a 3 pm matinee. The place was packed, though it's small so that is not difficult. My group enjoyed the deviled eggs and the burgers. Make sure you make a reservation days in advance if you are going before or after a show. This place books up fast. Eclectic menu, with vegan option, reasonable for midtown.

The food and service were great, but the space is tiny, even for Midtown. Our party of five was seated at a tiny side bar.

Very NYC! Small and cozy but oh so good! My husband had the french toast and it was absolutely incredible! I had an omelette and it came out pipping hot and the flavor was amazing! The host was very friendly and so were the servers.
