Waited over 90 minutes (1 and a half hours) to be seated after my reservation. Reservation was fir 8pm outside and we were seated at 9:45. Otherwise, food was great and nice employees but not sure I would do that again.

As it has been - great food & more so entire staff from MGT to the servers were A+++ .
My 3rd time there & this time I invited 14 of my friends .
We all had a great time. Sat on the 2nd level /in their semi private room which had ample space.

Special thanks to Allicia, Cecilia & our waiter johnny.

Also Melanie whom served us in the past .

Great barmaids & bartender.
And the rest of the staff .
Will see you soon .
There is not one bad dish for that reason I’ve been here 3 times thus far .

Food was overpriced, but at least in a lovely outdoor setting.

Overall excellent restaurant, highly recommend it. The outdoor patio is beautiful, services was attentive, and food was outstanding. The menu is so good it was extremely hard to decide what to order. We went with the sour dough bread with whipped canellini, charred cauliflower, adult kids pasta, and grilled branzino. Can't wait to head back to try more of the menu.

The food and ambiance here are okay but the service was terrible. Overall, there are many better NYC restaurants at this price point. Would not come back here.

To start, the weather forecast said it would rain in the next 30min. Rather than moving us to a covered space, the general manager (!) chose to negotiate with us whether 80% chance of rain indicated whether it was going to rain. Surprise surprise, there was torrential downpour within 30min. I’ve worked in hospitality - this was terrible form from start to finish.

Dinner took us 3 hours because we waited so long between our appetizers and our entrees even though the restaurant was not full at all. We somehow only saw our server like three times (including when he handed us our menu and took our order). Anytime we needed something, we’d have to ask the runners, and half of them never came back. Pretty disappointing because we had high hopes for this spot.

My friend and I got the dates wrong for NYC restaurant week and the staff was so kind as to let us do restaurant week still. Great food and amazing service!

Signature cocktails are on fire ! Extremely friendly servers but not completely understood serving at a restaurant for such a price point nor the details of the menu. Bronzino beautifully executed. Sea urchin toasts were yum but too tiny to worth $22. Burger was average with below average fries in an overkilled size.
In conclusion, in my option, 20% price drop, could have been a great post.

I had a wonderful experience even while traveling alone. The staff was on top of everything and the atmosphere was perfect. The food was superb and the menu during restaurant week was exceptional. I can’t wait to visit again with my husband. Thanks for making a solo evening perfect.

Everything was great and the food was delicious. Even though it recently opened, everything ran smoothly. It’s great for special occasions. I can’t wait to go back. The spinach pasta was so good!
