The macaroni and cheese was delicious. We wanted outside but it wasn’t heated so we came in. It wasn’t jammed but still quite noisy. I’d go back.

Thanksgiving flavors were good but the food could have been served hotter. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. The table was right by a draught which was unfortunate for this time of year.

Very average in all ways. I had the steak sandwich which I really did not love. My dining partner had the pork chops which were much much better… And the bang bang cauliflower was very good… I wouldn’t rush to come back here as I found it very average in all ways . This place will do in a pinch but don’t rush to get there

We had to wait 30 mins to be seated, so I don’t feel like te reservation was honored. Food and drinks were great, and staff friendly, but the wait for the table defeats the purpose of making a reservation jn the first place, and impact the experience.

The entrance door handle was broken the day we walked in. The bathrooms need renovation.

But I must say that the food is very good and they have very good service. The handhelds were good, and yummy fries.

Our family of six met for lunch in the outdoor space. The Bridge & Tunnel tots were a major hit. Menu needs a few more gluten free options.

The courtyard is amazing for outdoor dining and when we went on the early side, we had it to ourselves. Portions remain amazing and despite being out of sight due to being outdoors, service was A+ I think the happy hour menu is expanded? Or new to me, but a great range of options

Seated promptly outside. Host was attentive ... he saw my note that we wanted to sit outside but iphone Opentable wouldn't let me do it. Waited quite a while for our food. Shishito peppers were too salty and cold, french fries were cold, mussels were tasty, but too many onions. Not sure if we would go back.

Both the manager and our server were first rate. They were friendly and welcoming. The food was much tastier than the word "tavern" might suggest. I'd love to go back!

It was super noisy, and the table is weirdly wide, so I was far apart from my companion and we couldn't really hear each other. The food was okay - too salty though. I appreciated the references to Croton reservoir history.

Nice place. Attentive but not pushy staff. Drinks were very good. House sangria was excellent. Shishido peppers - yummy. Salads were large and filling. Large enough and spaced out so it felt very safe - not right on top of each other. Nice beer selection.

It’s a cozy and very well decorated place. The food is sooo good! Went here for my friend’s birthday and we had an absolute blast! The place is cleaned, well ventilated, spaced-out, and just a few steps from Bryant Park’s ice skating rink! My friends all loved the place. Can’t wait to go here again!

This was a covid time meal, so I’ll give them a pass for the bad service and freezing exterior temps. Suppose we expected heaters but had to leave hastily because shivering made it impossible to enjoy

Good food with nice decor. A really nice place. The service was tough with the translation of English which lead to issues on the bill, but just talk slow and go over your order 2 times to ensure it is right.
