    Stunning restaurant. We went during restaurant week and they offered a 3-course meal for an extremely reasonable price. The food was so good we wanted to keep eating but we also got full so fast. I would definitely come back!

    Frist time diner with Birthday Wife. Very attentive Hosts, seated us promptly and offered us a larger table to better enjoy the Birthday. Waiter was especially attentive, took our order for Food and Wine. Wine was presented quickly and poured during the meal as needed. Food was Spectacular, as was the wine. Coupled with the quality of the staff and the Food, prices were Very Reasonable. Best part was the waiter bringing out and Ice Cream Dessert with glowing candle, singing Happy Birthday. All in All, a memorable evening that will be repeated.

    Great experience. Made a reservation a few weeks in advance before an event nearby. Only complaint would be they seemed to set everyone in the same 1/4 of the restaurant when the rest was pretty open. Food was great. Do wish the wine by the glass menu was a bit bigger/better as we were about to go to a wine event so couldn’t get a bottle.

    New Year’s Eve and they were very unprepared even with a limited limited menu sat at 9:30, Amuse at 10:30. Apps at 11 and mains at almost midnight. We were starving. No bread even. The seafood appetizer was good. No one liked their entrees. Dessert was supposed to be chocolate soufflé. It was warm chocolate soup. Every one on them. Band was good.

    Across-the-board pleasant, inclusive of the greeting at the entry and the wait staff throughout dining. Noise level was very manageable, but we dined during the week and the dining room was not packed. Wine and dessert selections were very presentable. And midtown location worked for us. We will return.

    Nous sommes arrivés 15 minutes après notre heure de réservation. Nous avons dû patienter un peu, mais ils nous ont accommodés sans trop de reproches. Bruyant, mais pas désagréable. La serveuse était fort gentille, mais quelques oublis et erreurs. La nourriture est bonne, mais les portions un peu petites sans être ridicules. Au final, soirée agréable pour un prix honnête à Manhattan.

    We went on the Saturday before Christmas, probably the busiest day of the year in NYC. The ambiance was nice, we were greeted by a very nice host. Our waitress was perfunctory. Didn’t go out of her way to smile or any of the niceties that typically go with the service industry. The appetizers came out fast, but the meal to over 40 minutes. After my husband making aggravated eyes at our waitress from afar (she barely came to the table during that time), the host came over, apologized for the delay, and offered to buy a round of drinks. Had the waitress just stopped by occasionally and apologize for the delay (we know it was not her fault), we would have felt differently. The host was very gracious and helped the wait staff making people feel special. He made the evening.

    The place is very nice but it was way to loud with Holiday gatherings about the restaurant. We were seated at the entrance behind the cashier and the people standing we felt were too close to our table and chatting away. We could not hear ourselves in our party converse
