The food was fabulous from the starters to the entrees. The drinks were great and did not skimp on the alcohol. Each person at my table had something different to drink and I even asked the bartender to create something not on the menu and was pleased. I will say the portion sizes are tiny! My table was grateful for the appetizers because although the entrees were delicious, they were gone in minutes because there was so little there. I had the lobster fettuccine and joked that there were four strands of pasta. Overall, wonderful restaurant and highly recommended!

The food was NOT good. Shrimp was over cooked! The steak hs too much pepper! The decanter has a hole and wine spilled everywhere. We were given another bottle, but what a mess!
They do not have black napkins so they gave me cocktail napkins to put on my lap..smh. There were not many people, actually it was just us and yet I had to pour our wine. Eventually, they realized and handle it accordingly! It was an expensive dinner, wine was great!! We ended up eating someplace else, later in the evening. #dissapointed

Extremely underwhelming dinner location near the Plaza/Central Park area of NYC. I assume most individuals who dine at this establishment are not interested good service or a fun experience. The majority of employees were stand-offish and rude.

There are hundreds of dinner options in NYC -- Strongly recommend avoiding this one.

Every dish was absolutely wonderful. The service could not have been better. Only downside was that the prices were a bit high, given the relatively small portions.

I cannot stress how AMAZING our experience was, they were so so nice, every single staff person, and accommodated my mother by bringing up a table from downstairs because she couldn’t use the stairs. I don’t know any restaurant in NYC that would do something like this. THANK YOU, a million times over, for making our night! And... the food was DELICIOUS. EXCELLENT EXCELLENT EXCELLENT!

Our waiter was rude and ignored us for 25 minutes before allowing us an opportunity to get a drink order in. Food was good, a little pricey for what it is, but definitely delicious. The restaurant was half empty and was blasting club music which I thought was a bit odd. However, the quality of the food made up for the few downsides. The filet was outstanding, drinks are unique and delicious, and baked alaska is great and comes with a "show" if you enjoy your food being set on fire!

From the moment we arrived, we felt like honored guests. The staff is friendly and professional, and we felt especially-well-taken-care-of by our server, Stacey. The dining room is spacious and attractive, the lighting just right, and the music isn't too loud. The food was very good, especially the Caesar salad, and (surprise!) the bread and butter served before the meal was truly superb. We shared three small plates and had the seafood stew for two. The stew was good but a little bland... but thankfully not-at-all over-salted, which we both appreciated. Best of all, though, was the service. We look forward to returning.

Loved the vibe and atmosphere
Food was really really good.
The mushroom/chestnut soup was to die for
The turkey dinner left me stuffed and it was like being at home
The mashed potatoes were fantastic
The pecan/cranberry tart was just enough n not overly sweet at all

Thank you Chef Michael, Raschid and Alex for making me feel like I wasn’t celebrating Thanksgiving alone

Great location.

I’ll be back!

This was only the restaurant’s second week in operation, but they definitely have it together. Impeccable service, perfectly presented cuisine, and a warm welcoming ambiance all come together to make for a great dining experience.
Our waiter Mathew had an in-depth knowledge of the menu and wines, which is really a testament to the chef’s rapport with the staff when you think about it.

This gem came up on Open table and we're glad we went. The atmosphere is comfortably familiar with a modern twist. The service was great, attentive, professional, knowledgable. The food was exquisitely prepared and elegantly presented. There are vegetarian offerings as well as steak and other proteins. Each item we were served was truly delicious. Make sure you try the duck fat tater tots and cocktail shrimp. Two drawbacks...there is no disabled access and it was very dark in spots, including our table. A small light on each table, a battery operated candle for example, would have been most welcomed. We had to use our phones to read the menu. Awkward. Bathrooms are beautiful.
