We ordered 2 bottles of red wine and the wine was served very very cold. So cold there was condensation on the bottles. So cold we could not taste the wine. Red wine should not be served cold.

Food and location were on-point: the noise level was beyond loud - the tables were basically on top of each other - that unfortunately ruined the experience.

The food was ok. Our waitress was pleasant however the man host with a full beard was very rude which made our brunch experience not very pleasant. I probably won’t go back.

Venue was really busy, the music was loud.
The seared tuna was delicious as was the classic sole on Thursdays albeit a little salty.
Nice food, efficient service.

Had eaten here once before and had the type of fine casual dining experience one hopes for: attentive server but not bothersome; leisurely paced courses to enjoy the ambiance and flavors.

So we were excited to take our out of town guests after a show. Booked a 10 pm table on Open Table (slots went up to 10:45 pm) and arrived at about 9:55 pm. The host had seen my reservation, so was expecting us.

And that’s why we were shocked to be greeted so coldly, with an immediate, stern warning that “The kitchen is closing at 10 pm”. Then why offer tables at this hour?

We stayed because it was late and we were already there. Our server was very nice and as pleasant as she could be with the host/owner? cracking the whip.

Our meals were good. The irritation comes with offering reservations at a time the management is not comfortable with, and delivering a hostile experience.

It was wonderful experience. Since I was there on a date, it was nice that even there were a lot of people in the restaurant it was not noisy. That two people sitting across from each other were able to talk at the normal volume. Loved it. Food was great as well and I loved the fact that they bring cheese and ketchup fir the French fries! Awesome! Will definitely be back again.

Nice decor, cozy ambience but I’m afraid the positives stopped there. The waitress and server were short with us. When asking for the wifi password, my friend was rudely directed towards the door. The waitress didn’t come back to take our orders. When we waved at her, she said ‘what’s up?’ Left the check on our table before we were done eating, and we had not even dined for an hour. Food was ok so it’s not worth the underwhelming service.

Good value but service was awful. From the host to the server to the incorrect bill. No exaggeration, worst service I’ve had at any restaurant in over 5 years.

We were a party of 6 for Thanksgiving dinner at 5p. Four of us arrived early, but stood at the bar for quite a while before being acknowledged. Quaint, lively, charming spot with excellent food - we had the seabass, flank steak, squash raviolis, and tomato bisque w/grilled cheese for my son. Service was slow - long wait between drinks, but we weren't in a hurry.

Service is excellent and food is very good!
Noise level is high, but way too crowded. My chair was continually being bumped, even tripped over by a busperson, making brunch less enjoyable. I highly recommend eating outside, weather permitting.

Yuck!!! The food came to the table less than seven minutes after we ordered and was AWFUL. Tasted like it had been heated in the microwave. Music was way too loud - even for NYC standards. Dirty wine glasses, stale bread, ugh, the list goes on. Do not waste your time.

Yes, I always love Extra Virgin -- a great stable for the neighborhood, and a go-to when the parents are in town. But! we had really frustrating and inattentive service this time around. Otherwise, good as usual.

The restaurant was lovely, but I went home hungry. My entree was presented beautifully, but it was cold as was my daughters, and they reheated it for us. Maybe I ordered wrong, but as nice as the restaurant was, I was not impressed with the food.

We saw this restaurant on Food Network and the episode was about the Sunday meatballs with spaghetti. The meatballs were outstanding and so huge that we could only eat one and took the rest home for lunch the next day! So good!! The wine selection was nice too! We would go there again the next trip we make to the city!
