Booth One Ratings and Reviews
Obviously very new. Service was lovely and efficient. I had to ask for a black napkin..probably should be offered. Menu is pretty expensive though limited. Perhaps a few more mid priced items. Booth One wants to get the neighborhood in ( like us)..so they need variety.
I would put in olives and chips vs little toasts. Food was cooked well, salmon good but a bit plain. Great Caesar salad great smashed potatoes. Filet was good.
Excellent job with the new concept and a nod to the Pump Room. Very elegant room but not stuffy. Not sure if it was due to live piano previously but it might fit this concept as well? Food was spectacular! Service was spot on. Hats off to Lettuce once again.
Booth One was definitely a let down. To start, the food was underwhelming. The appetizers (seafood sampler and crab claw) are basically built for one person and would be nearly impossible to share amongst a small group. The entrees (tortellini & beef wellington) we ordered lacked flavor and tasted very bland. The dessert (rasberry Kiss) was one of the worst desserts we have had. It tasted liked it was made a week ago and taken out of the fridge to serve.
On top of the food disappointment, the service was also pretty terrible. We waited nearly 30 minutes for appetizers and the server forgot to bring us several drinks, so we had to keep reminding them. I was so excited to check this place out, but definitely will not be going back anytime soon.
The renovation of the Pump Room is absolutely gorgeous. The design, light fixtures, ambience--just beautiful. We were there on day 2 of their opening and everything was perfection. My St. George Gin Gimlet was superb . The stone crab and rack of lamb with mint risotto were simply delicious. The service couldn't have been nicer and better. We loved the variety of music playing and best of all-=--we could have a conversation without screaming at each other. It is so rare to find a lovely restaurant where you can actually talk and not leave with a headache. We have already made two more reservations. can't wait to return for Dover Sole night!!
