One of the largest restaurants in NYC with great food. It was a bit cold even inside but the food was perfect. Most important is to save for the desserts. We had 2 different desserts where they poured chocolate over ice cream or pastries and they were each divine. Once was dark chocolate and one was milk chocolate. Very good Crepe Suzette a must have. Hangar steak was very good. Wagyu was good but not awesome, but that is because I do not like sirloin steak. Great place for a date or even kids because it is so noisy even my kids would not offend anyone.

We absolutely loved having brunch here. The food was just phenomenal and the service was fantastic. We can't wait to come back during our next trip to New York. We highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a place to dine.

They originally sat my party directly under the airstream and after just 10 mins we had to ask to be moved. Main dishes took a bit to come out (we got psyched out twice), and the creme brulee was a bit disappointing as it had a distinct egg taste as if the egg had curdled. However, the other dishes were very good. Overall, this was a good outdoor dining experience and I would return.

Great vibe - just happy to be out and dining..the atrium is perfect for outdoor dining, but without the edge of winter...

Food was good, not great...burger was woefully under cooked, steak over cooked..but they handled it and it didn’t ruin the day..

I would still go back again, not Paris, but close enough!

I went for a dinner with my university friends after a long time. While the decor and ambience were amazing, the steak was amazing as well. Def one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. 10/10 recommended medium rare peppercorn steak with mashed potato and caramelized onions. The mussels and the cod fish were okay. Would visit again for a special occasion.

Food and drinks were outstanding! Wasn’t expecting it to be as noisy as it was, but that’s largely due to the design of how the restaurant was built in the structure.
Ambiance was welcoming and charming as well.
Service could definitely improve. Throughout our dinning experience, one to many times the food runners brought food to our table that wasn’t ours. No big deal though. It happens. We laughed it off. Our Waitress was extremely apathetic and assumptive as we kept ordering she turned away more than once thinking we were done. Granted, we did order a lot for two, But we wanted to get the full experience food and drink wise! Overall good. I’d like to try the other locations

The veal chop I ordered was very overcooked. It was very hard to distinguish from a pork chop which was about $30 cheaper. Very disappointing

Went here for Valentines day. The outdoor setup was really nice and kept me warm despite it being outside. The food was delicious albeit a little on the pricey side but there are definitely more moderate options. Overall the experience was lovely the food was honestly well worth the prices and will be coming back

My wife found plastic cooked in with her food.... We arrived on time and it took 45min. Just to place our order. 1 hour and a half just to get our complementary bread and butter. And a little over two hours to start receiving our food! Other then those things the tasted amazing .

Extremely overpriced and horrible service. Waiter would leave and go missing for a half hour at a time. When confronted about it, he blamed on another table for being problematic. Middle of meal the waiter just left and apparently we switched servers. This new server literally got us another round of drinks and brought the check. I tipped subpar because the service was subpar. As being an individual who works in the food industry, it is understandable when poor service warrants a poor tip (I tipped 18%). As I was exiting this new waiter had the audacity to ask my date while I was going to the bathroom why I tipped so poorly. Unbelievable. Valentine’s Day is usually a pretty good excuse for error in a restaurant, however my reservation was at an off peak time and was not very busy. Seriously, as a foodie, I would not recommend this place. Very disappointing, foolish of me to have high hopes based on my previous experiences at boucherie in west village.

When we entered this restaurant there was very long line to show your reservation. We were seated in 15 minutes and we were attended 20 minutes later to get our order. We almost left as no customer should have to wait this long to be attended. The place we were seated was very narrow and inconvenient. It was right next to where the waiters would place the customers’ orders. The food was fair, not outstanding. We had the LGB burger, the French Onion Soup and the Steak Aux Oeufs. My husband had ordered medium well on his burger, and received medium rare. I was not asked how I would like my steak. The French fries that came with the dishes were not fried in fresh oil as they were very dark and oily. The restaurant felt a bit disorganized. Overall, I would not come back to this place.

Number one the food was not worth the money...this place felt fake fancy and I totally regretted not going to Nobu. Sadly enough I was forced to eat deserts while my dinner plates (which were obviously finished) sat in the corner Bus service terrible. To top it off we tried to enjoy our drinks seeing that everything else was terrible and we have the waiter forcing us to drink as fast as possible so they could fill our seats. We were not done ordering....

Terrible Terrible Terrible

Given the fact that it was Valentines, wait can considerably be longer.
Food is delicious, ambiance was spectacular. Would want to visit on a rather slower day.

Very lovely experience. The outside dining area is better than the standard inside area. It is crowded but still partitioned area. ( I’m sure they are adhering to the restrictions it just seemed really full) the Steak was totally delicious and highly recommended. Wait staff was superb! Good experience all around.

We went for Valentines Day brunch. The restaurant was busy despite the pandemic. I have mixed feelings writing this review. Overall, the food was excellent. We had two of the salads, the steak frites, the roast beef, and a croque monsieur. The desserts were also fabulous. The problem was the incredibly slow service. It took 15 minutes for us to even be acknowledged at out table and then another 15 minutes to take a drink order. There was a long wait between courses. It took almost 45 minutes for dessert to arrive. Part of our party had to leave so were unable to enjoy the delicious deserts. We spoke with the manager who apologized for the slow service and offered to remove the desserts from our bill. It looked like there were plenty of waitstaff so I’m not sure if there was an issue with the kitchen or our particular server.

Went for a brunch date. Food and service were great, and they are doing all the things for Covid safety, and have heat lamps at every table for outdoor winter eating.
