    Earth is pure magic! Dark, moody walls and high ceilings complimented by glittering trees and branches. A roaring fire and pine scents wafting mixed with red wine. Was it real or was it Narnia? The food is just as magical as the space. Creative but comforting options. Diverse but cohesive menu. The dishes were warm and beautiful with effortless presentations. The cocktail menu revivals my favorite Manhattan bars and the wine list was thoughtful with delicious Italian reds. Our server, Nicole, and as a gem. She was attentive, knowledgeable, generous and refreshingly opinionated when we asked her to compare and contrast dishes.

    This was our second visit - the first was spectacular in every way, about one month ago before the holidays. I would rate that experience 5 stars in every way. Last night, we had many of the same options - but this time the mushroom bisque came with very little duck and was served lukewarm. The fettuccine with clams had little flavor. And the duck was good, but not great. While still a fine experience, it did not live up to the expectations set back in December. However, the service, ambiance and cocktails were as perfect as the last visit. Maybe it was just an off night for the kitchen. Both visits were at 5:00 pm on a busy Saturday, FYI.

    Great meal and service. The brussels sprouts and mushroom risotto were both great starters. The Thai seafood stew was very good with a bit of a kick. My wife enjoyed the butternut squash ravioli and both meals were delivered HOT which is expected but not always delivered. Dessert was warm donuts with vanilla ice cream and a coffee mouse. The donuts were memorable! Overall, a great restaurant with an intimate feel and interesting decor. Has a special occasion vibe,

    We went for the 2nd seating for New Year's-Casino Royale @ $225 per head, 5 courses, including prizes, champagne toast at midnight, and blackjack tables (plus the cost of cocktails and coffee). The food was good, but not exceptional. My sashimi arrived at room temperature. Our table location was disappointing. We were not in the main dining area, but rather inside an enclosed porch. It was narrow and a little too dark and you couldn't see anything outside. The waitstaff was polite, but she stopped by our table too often and her response to anything I said was "of course!" It just didn't present or feel like a fine dining experience. The table was very small and the chairs were difficult/heavy to scoot in and out; they kept getting stuck when I tried to get up or scoot closer to the table. The blackjack table was great, though. We stepped outside to a little round tent/building to play. Our dealer was witty and fun! We were given $1K in chips to play with. We were able to score glasses of champagne on our way out, but it wasn't well organized--we were leaving the restaurant and they were in the process of handing out glasses to the remaining diners in the main dining area. We thought the waitstaff would have come around to the blackjack booths to alert us and invite us in beforehand to ensure we all had our glasses of champagne for midnight. There was no official countdown or excitement. No traditional music. All and all, it was nice to get out on New Year's Eve, but it fell quite short of my expectations; I was disappointed on my ride home. Today I received a call and a message from Earth asking if, by chance, I had taken the wrong coat home. I was not being accused, but they were calling because a diner had misplaced a coat and they were reaching out to all the diners to see if someone had mistakenly brought a coat home that wasn't theirs. It was an odd call as the woman started rambling after the ask. It was an awkward message.

    Went there for New Year's Eve, 8:30 seating. They advertised a 4-course meal, but each person received a bonne bouche and three apps, so it was really a 6-course meal! That was a nice surprise. The apps all looked fantastic, so it was awesome to be able to choose three! The food was magnificent, all of it! There were plenty of waitstaff. The only disappointment was that there was no sommelier at such a high-end restaurant; we ended up with a great bottle of wine from the extensive wine list, but it was totally dumb luck.

    Third visit to Earth. A storm delayed our reservation by a few days but the food was very good. Service and ambience is outstanding. Our server was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The restaurant is beautiful- an artful woodsy lodge. The menu is seasonal, well chosen and well prepared EXCEPT every (hot) dish brought to our table could have been hotter. Additionally, it was confusing making the booking. The Earth website and their Facebook page said they were closed on the night we went. OpenTable and Google stated correctly that the restaurant was open. It’s almost 2023 - managing your online presence correctly is not optional. They need to focus on resolving these troubling things that mar an otherwise excellent restaurant experience.

    Sparkling lights, high ceilings and unusual decor create a fascinating environment. Service is exemplary. The food is wonderful. We chose the 3 course meal and enjoyed each course as much as the prior. My husband had the tuna appetizer and the fish stew and I the roasted beets followed by the duck. What a treat. This restaurant is a delight.
