The service was poor even by pathetic NYC standards. The hostess should be fired. She wouldnt seat us because our table wasnt ready. The restaurant was only a quarter full. (This was for 1pm Sunday brunch). Just set the darn table, it was literally in front of us. It took 40 minutes to get our first drink. This is absurd as we ordered expensive champagne with zero preparation required, and again, no one in the restaurant. They played good tunes and the portions were large.

The food was amazing and the waiter was really great.. but we felt very rushed. We understood you can see people waiting in the waiting area, it’s just that when I go out to eat with a friends I like to spend more than an hour with them.

Came here for NYC restaurant week as a party of 3. The food and services were excellent. There is a rustic ambience about the decor that is inviting.

Very over priced but the food was very good. Service was excellent. There were many large groups of teenage girls from Long Island having dinner. I prefer a more adult vibe.

The service and food are amazing. We come twice every trip. Tommy, the manager made this one extra special after chatting with our daughter Bailey, we got free dessert. He made sure our experience was awesome!! Thank you so much see ya next trip!

had the best time at dinner, the music in the restaurant was awesome and the food was great, only thing i was a bit shocked by the very expensive cover charge to get into the club downstairs, especially that we had just spent a lot of money on dinner and the music was better in the restaurant than in the club

The food was not good at all. We were not all served at the same time. The waiter forgot to order some food.
The decor of the restaurant is old and ugly.
Do not recommend.
