Was a great experience. We had to wait about 20 minutes later than our reservation but I understand that people don't always leave right away and therefore tables don't always open up. I was really impressed with the hostess and the manager when a woman at the table catty cornered to us was being an absolute monster and even threatened the hostess' job. Both hostess Elizabeth and the Manager remained professional, calm and poised. Not always easy when "the guest is always right" Ugh! good on yas!!!

This was my wife and I's first time here of any of the locations. We made a reservation obviously. Had virtually no wait to be seated. I have some GI issues, so bathroom was used and I would say was clean enough compared to most Manhattan restrooms.

The food was good, not amazing. The service was good, everyone was friendly except the hostess and I read some other reviews saying the same thing. She doesn't even pick up her head. She doesn't even act like she wants to be there, perhaps the wrong career choice if not a people person. I felt that they were moving too quickly just to keep turning the table over. Don't get me wrong, I get it, more customers, more money, but you also want these customers to come back, right?

Great Happy Hour prices on drinks for the city.

With reservation, I was seated quickly. Within a few minutes we meet our server and drinks came soon after. Food was served quickly and was great. We were checked on often enough to feel like we mattered. Excellent service. Highly recommended

I love this location. I went to the East Village location and it was very poor quality. I was embarrassed that I had even recommended it. The Midtown NY (3rd ave.) location is the best!!! The people are nice, attentive and very accommodating.

Although it was my second time there, it was my dates first and he really enjoyed it. The hostess was the best, he was running a bit late and she was able to move our reservations back a bit. Very accommodating!!! He loved the drinks, as did I but wasn't to fond of having to cook. Lol, but we will be back!!! Thank you Midtown!!!
