The menu is limited and the price isn't exactly a match for quantity of food. However, the quality of food is superb. I ordered the quinoa avocado salad with hanger steak. The amount of salad was exaggerative, and he amount of steak for $12 was too little. So there's an imbalance on that part. Same goes for the grilled salmon, small piece for $26. However? The desert was perfect. Order the apple tart. It comes with cinnamon gelato. It wasn't too sweet at all--it tasted real in terms of sweetness. Absolutely delicious. The ambience is very nice and casual. The waiter was quite attentive. Would go back for the M-F happy hour

We had lunch here before a Sunday 3pm theater curtain — and had a blissfully peaceful experience, because apparently tourists don't know this place is here! Hope it stays that way.

This place is a dump. It's overpriced, the service is poor, and the bathroom is disgusting. I would not recommend to anyone.

Great find near Bryant Park! An oasis of calm and coziness amidst the craziness of midtown. Will definitely be back.

We were looking for a quick not fussy dinner after a workout at the Bryant Park Equinox and this totally fit the specs. Surprisingly good food.

I chose this restaurant strictly for convenience and all 4 of us were pleasantly surprised. Upon walking in to the packed house we assumed we would never hear each other speak but once we sat down it was fine. Everything we ordered was delicious and the fairly new waiter from Ocean City, MD was terrific. I give it a A+ and I will definitely return. Apparently downstairs is where the happy hour is, in addition to the very busy upstairs bar. Don’t forget to also ask for the bar menu when dining for additional choices.
