He had to deal with a group of 65+ yo women and he handled it deftly and with witty charm. My only complaint was I thought our booth a little too tight for five. Great service, good food, and wonderful ambiance. One of my favorite places in the city!

We were able to sit in a small private room and that was the best part except that all the wait staff was too busy or inexperienced to pay attention to us. The food was generally mediocre and the only saving grace was the butter cake which is one of my favorite desserts.

We had the prawns and my partner had the sole which was melt in your mouth. We were next to a loud party of 12 so it was very noisy. It would have ben better to sit in the main dining room rather than by the windows.

From the welcoming greeter, the attentive waiter every staff member has a great big smile on their face. Nothing is too much trouble. The ambiance to the place to great too, tables & the red leather backed benches the place has a lovely feel to it. Now the food, we both had a sandwich, me the prime rib thinly sliced with my choice of about 5 cheeses in a toasted French stick that was about 4 inches across bursting with tender beef full of flavour, it came with a generous pile of seasoned skin on fries a large ramekin of ‘ah jus’ and a serving of creamed horseradish. A heavenly combination. My wife had the famous hamburger sandwich that was presented in the same toasted bread, the beef again was perfectly cooked to her choice. Please god let’s pray this place stays true to its style and standards.

They are Caesar salad dressing used to be amazing. Now it tasted like it was from a bottle. I had the New York strip and ravioli on the side. The steak was just OK but the ravioli was actually excellent.

We had the aranchini and fried calamari, which were both delicious. The cesear salad was very good as well. For the main dishes, we had the chicken parmigiana, veal parmigiana, spaghetti bolognese and the chicken piccata. All of them were super flavorful and the portions were very big. The desserts were very good as well.

I took my friend who had never been because it is a SF institution. I love the energetic vibe and decor. The food was great! We had the shrimp and crab cocktails, sole piccata, and chicken pesto linguine. The ravioli side dish was yummy and perfectly al dente. Everything was so good! We washed it down with some delicious sparkling wine. Our server was excellent and gave us just the right amount of attention. We'll be back!

The crabcake Benedict was perfect for my taste without needing the Hollandaise. Good spaghetti carbonara too. Service was efficient and seating next to the window good with a view of Washington Square Park was e,xtra nice.
