    The items aren’t thought out enough and a single flavor dominated each of the dishes we had. The deviled eggs come with salmon roe and the salty, brine flavor is so overpowering that nothing else is tasted. You don’t taste the richness of the egg yolk or the smokiness of the paprika or the spice of the mustard. You taste salt. The dry aged beef burger comes on a brioche that is so sweet that it overpowers the richness of the foie gras and the funkiness of the beef. You taste nothing but bready, sweetness. The entire purpose of dry aging is to put these blue cheese, funky notes forward. Here, they’re muted. Also, we ordered medium rare and the burger arrived well done. The strawberry shortcake’s cake is a round, over cooked scone whose cream filling isn’t thick enough to add back the moisture lost and isn’t rich enough to coat your mouth in sweet notes. The strawberries are chopped instead of sliced. You’re unable to have a forkful which means each component has to be eaten separately. The service was lacking. Our busser was far more attentive than our waiter. I wished we could have had the busser as our waiter. Overall, not a great experience and not a great value. Your money is better spent elsewhere. Go to BurgerJoint for a real burger or make the trip to Peter Luger’s to drop the same amount of cash for a destination burger.

    Lamb burger was still good, med. rare. Twice cooked fries was not twice cooked since it was not crisp as before. Dry aged rib eye burger ordered med. rare was dry and over cooked. Seared foie gras was not seared. Very disappointed.

    Food was good, but the prices and service were atrocious. I spent $25 on a burger, so I was disappointed when it wasn’t up to par. Not that it was bad, but certainly not worth the money. Service was even worse, but I’m not sure I can blame the servers because they seemed understaffed (only two servers running around for a brunch crowd). We waited 50 mins. between order and meal, which his crazy considering we only ordered a burger and a sandwich. We had our coffees topped off once, and that’s as an ordeal of flagging the server down and having her come out 10 mins. later. Get these poor girls some help! Wish I could have a reason to return, but unfortunately cannot in its current state. We tipped generously as always though, thank you for your service during covid!

    Very good food but still expensive for what it is. And my soda was flat, they shouldn't open your soda for you, its unsanitary and belittling. And it was $6 for a mini bottle. Ridiculous even for midtown.

    The food is delicious. The service is great. The space is just average and very noisy. Lacks any real warmth. Wasn’t helped by a bunch of clueless Instagram “influencers” who spent their entire meal lighting their food with super bright LED lights and taking hideous photos of otherwise beautiful plates of food. Let’s hope they influence a whole generation of food lovers to actually taste April Bloomfield’s wonderful food.

    We were given a cozy corner table, and hitch allowed us to have quality conversation during this special family dinner. Our burrata app., lamb burger, black bass and pork chop entrees were all exceptional. Service was thoughtful and attentive. Ambience and noise level were perfect for fun atmosphere but still able to converse. Well worth waiting for this bucket list opportunity!

    The host was a bit rude or just inexperienced. We were arrived a couple minutes prior to the kitchen opening and prior to our reservation and we were standing right in front of the host for a couple minutes. We were not acknowledged until 1 or 2 minutes after the kitchen was open for dinner where we were asked to “please take a step back Incase others need to get through.” Which is a fine request, but generally you say hello first, especially when a group is waiting right in front of you for a few minutes. My wife had the lamb burger, about 4 years ago and has been telling how great it was. It was good but not great. It was a smaller burger patty than she remembered with a huge bun. Way too much bun with not enough burger for me. Also her sea bass was very fishy. The apps were very good, we had the liver, burrata and scotch egg. Also there fries are quite excellent. The waitress was nice and service was good. Nothing spectacular, but good. I probably won’t go back given the cost of the meal which is standard New York prices vs the value.

    This is a nice little gem located in Chelsea. We went there for breakfast with 4 small children (two couples). The service was excellent, and the quality of food and craftsmanship was very good. A little pricey, but it is Chelsea. The decor and ambiance was classic PUB style with a beautiful wooden bar. Great place to grab breakfast.

    It’s true just like other reviews —- long wait for the food. Took more than half hour for one dish. Waiter is not bad as other reviews. But the food waiting time is ‘abnormally’ long for a general restaurant. Also, the saltiness level is high which I agrees with other review.

    Overall we had a great night with close friends and enjoyed the food. With that said, it would have been a better experience if our waitress was at least 20% interested at being at work. For a festive, expensive Friday night out, a little conversation and attention is not too much to ask for. We could hardly get her attention and then she would walk away before we even finished asking questions. Should never have to be that way.
