The vibe was great. The service-level could be improved - we had long wait times to order our food. The food was good, not amazing. This is an awesome place to go before heading out for the night.

One of my NY favorites. It always delivers on quality, service and atmosphere. Wonderful food well prepared and the staff are extremely helpful and all gorgeous. The best bouillabaisse in the city.

The food was delicious, and the restaurant has a great feel. It's definitely going for a hip vibe and it achieves it. The staff is a little inattentive, and not really into the clientele, but they are perfectly nice once you engage them directly, but it's on you to ask for things. There are some really wonderful signature dishes, and I think this would be a great place to have your birthday. The value isn't bad either, and the cocktails were very good.

Good scene and similarly looking crowd as always. We asked to cancel a couple of dishes which they said they would, then the check came and they were still on, and we asked them to take them off, and assumed they did and we didn’t check, and they hadn’t. Otherwise a good dinner, experience and time.

Very tasty and creative Vietnamese food. Loved the fried rice with shrimp and scallions--it had both tiny dry shrimp and fresh shrimp. Nice lively atmosphere however I thought the noise level was too much and table were spaced too close. But I would come back just for the food.

Visiting New York from London for my sisters 30th birthday. Booked this restaurant as the menu looked lovely (reservations were easy to make) and there were quite good reviews with regards to the food but not the service. I can clarify that the service was APPAULING - most of the waitresses thought they were too good to be there and were not at all warm and welcoming. It is such a shame as the place has potential but the staff had let it down. The tables are also very close together with no room to get up without knocking into the table next to you. Our waitress in particular kept elbowing AND leaning on my sister when taking orders and serving the tables either side of us. The food was delicious, can't fault it at all.

Food was excellent but service is far too fast and they kept on interrupting. Without even waiting us to finish the appetizer they brought the main course. Our conversation was constantly interrupted by waiter for service, request....

Food was okay. the entrees were better than the starters. Initially the waitperson was not very pleasant and seemed very unhappy. Mid meal her attitude did improve. Hostess had zero personality and was put out that she had to retrieve our checked coats. The experience as a whole was disappointing.

Hot spot with amazing food and a nice scene with great ambiance. The only negative thing id the hostess’ attitude that is outstanding for it’s lack of service and professionalism.

We did not receive all the sharing dishes we ordered, but the last item (the special for only 16 dollars) was still added to the bill. When we pointed that out, our waiter said the kitchen insisted that it had been sent out and the waitress thought she had seen it on our table although we had not received it/eaten it/seen what it looked like. They refused to take it off the bill ultimately - basically meaning that four paying customers were lying. Worst service ever.
