Nyc restaurant week. The chicken and mussels were tasty. Happy hour at bar from 4-7pm M-F. Grab your drinks first before you get table. Large portions. Easy to share even if they tell you otherwise.

ambience and service was ok but the food was very disappointing. My friend got the truffle burger and said it was good but wouldn’t get it again. My dish however was the octopus and it was lukewarm and way over cooked. Extremely bland and chewy. I took a couple bites and left the rest. Wasn’t worth trying to get through. Luckily I had order a side of fries and nibbled on those. Server asked how was everything (but clearly we left 1/2 the food to be cleaned up). Genuinely surprised because I see this place being blogged all the time but just goes to show you can’t always believe the hype.

Very good service. Nice ambiance. Food is poor to fair at best. If they could get their food up to at least a consistently fair level, it’d be a pretty solid restaurant.

I felt the service was lacking from the bland host who could care less to the over-energetic waitress who tried too hard. The table was smaller than a scrabble board and the wine served at the wrong temperature. I am/was not impressed, I won't go back. Plus, the food was nothing special. The octopus was chewy and over-spiced. The branzino overcooked. Truly, not worth it.

A very very very poor experience! Our table included a clear view of the dishwashing area. Ironic considering all else was in darkness. Flat champagne, meat in vegetable salads, raw potatoes with confit chicken dish, beacon unadvertised with mussels, unrecognisable eggplant. An utter disgrace. I will be telling all my friends and indeed enemies.

The service was outstanding!I booked a reservation way in advance for 2 but my cousins decided to join us for last minute and the host was very friendly. Been here many times i can't remember ever being disappointed. Food and service always top notch. Many bistros in nyc but not many of this magnitude. Extremely large, always packed and yet food comes out on time.

Come here very often. Food is always great. This time though they didn't slice the steak frites like they've always done, which brings us to service. Service this time was awful. I asked the server to have it sliced and he said "just a moment", walked away, and never came back. He never asked us if we wanted drinks or wine at the start and after I ordered a drink he never came back to ask (or so I could ask) for a second round. I'll chalk it up to an off night and will still be returning because the food is excellent and the service is usually on point.

The food was good, space and ambiance was tight and loud. Waiters looked confused not knowing the preparation of some dishes or what the soup du jour was.
All fixable things through good management.

I have NEVER had such a terrible experience at a restaurant, I even waited over an hour to speak with the manager who I was told went home after inquiring the 3rd time about where she was. From the moment we walked in, service and food was just off the charts terrible.

I was dining alone and sat at the open cooking counter. The restaurant was beautifully decorated for the holidays. The whole ambience of this place is lively, cozy, elegant and fun all at the same time. I had an impeccable steak au poivre and frites. The service was outstanding. I can't wait to return on my next trip to New York.

Me and my wife were shopping in the city for our anniversary. We wanted to grab quick lunch, and based on the reviews we chose this beautiful place. The service was very attentive and knowledgeable. We started with the escargots and foie gras, and for our main course i got the hanger steak and my wife ordered the mushroom ravioli.
The food was flavorful, the steak was perfectly cooked.
We finished our lunch with the best dessert I’ve ever had “profiteroles”! I highly recommend this place.
