Beautiful place, excellent service. Nice wines. The only problem is the wrong charge - we ordered fixed price 3 curse dinner, eventually have been charged all separately with total amount much higher than if as we requested, were charged the 85$ per person 3 course dinner. Since it was the anniversary and i didn't want to get into arguments with the personnel, i just paid what they charged. But it was not nice.

This meal was so good that I ate it at a glacial pace because I didn’t want it to end. Filet mignon that was served with onions and blue cheese filled croissants, was divine!! Also had the corn creme brûlée and green beans. The restaurant and outdoor space are very elegant and the staff is amazing! I will definitely be back!!

Our waiter was outstanding. This "playful" take on French bistro food left us with several questions about the menu. He helped us through all of the,. His recommendations were excellent. The sommelier was stretched pretty thin because it was busy.

Awesome outdoor cabins! So charming. The butter appetizer is amazing. The staff were very flexible with our disorganized group. The only thing I would have appreciated would have been more active refilling of our water.

Everything is amazing-the ambiance, filet, and wine! The lobster starter dish is an extra $10 with the wine dinner but well worth it! It’s like a warm, buttery lobster roll. SO good! There’s no menu for the wine dinner but it comes with their house white, rose, and red wine (no sparkling).

The food and service was excellent but the ambiance definitely left something to be desired. Sat outside in one of the tents. The lighting was too bright and the patrons were really loud. Not the restaurant’s fault. We came for what we thought would be a romantic dinner to celebrate our 38th anniversary but the others in the tent included a baby, a dog, three loud guys one of whom ate his steak with his hands (gross!) and a three some who included a woman who was basically screaming instead of talking. Too bad because the food was delicious but we will always remember the less than lovely atmosphere and will think twice about coming back.

First of all, the place is VAST and it is GORGEOUS!

The service was friendly and efficient.

The food... The oysters were fresh and delicious, so was the Caesar Salad. Our fillets mignon were perfectly cooked.

But I have to tell you! I ordered my fillet with the Chez Chino, which are little croissants stuffed with bleu cheese! DEAR GOD THEY'RE AMAZING! In little bites on their own or with the steak, they are heaven!

The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the crab cake. I prefer broiled lump crabmeat and this was the stringier crab and it was deep fried and breaded. It was good, but I'm a Maryland crab cake snob. (I didn't ask the right questions beforehand.) The peppers and aioli that the crab cake is served with are terrific and the aioli goes really well with the steak. If you like a breaded and fried crab cake, it's great.

Desserts... the chocolate mousse is heaven. The Cinnamon Toast Brioche with Espresso Sabayon... I could weep. It was extraordinary. The brioche was sweet and firm. The sabayon was light and creamy.

Finally, the coffee was rich and superb.

I can't wait to go back.

The dining room is stunning, the menu is concise, but the servers gave us a great overview and “tour” of the menu. The food and cocktails are on point. Most of our table ordered the filet mignon, all cooked perfectly, frites to die for, and the cocktails were well balanced. The service was prompt but we never felt rushed. Although it was nearing last call, they accommodated our group for a cheeky nightcap after dinner at the front bar, We definitely appreciated that.

Don’t overthink it just book. It’s a particularly great option for larger groups as well. Had a fabulous time!

The place is very impressive and my date was a bit surprised lol! I wasn’t crazy for the cocktail options but OK! The crab cakes were simply delicious!! We only had few drinks and appetizers as it was a first encounter.
Service was top of line! The really best, from the hostess to our server Alex it was all to perfection!
The music/songtracks were also amazing , a bit loud but really good fun taste! All great! Must return and visit again!!

We haven't really been out to many places since Covid but we finally ventured out. We were seated at an outdoor table (tented and heated so even though it was raining it was very comfortable). Everyone was very mask conscious and it felt very safe ! The interiors were beautiful and seeing how they spaced people out with dividers we would also try inside in the future. We got the oysters, butter plate, spicy Caesar salad, filet mignon, Brussels sprouts, and French fries with the apple tarte tartin for dessert. Everything was absolutely delicious and perfectly cooked! We will definitely be coming back. Also special shout-out to our waiter Milton, who was the perfect amount of attentive, and made sure we always had everything we needed.

We are from the 'burbs, so this was our first dinner in a NYC restaurant in more than a year - if you call the "cabin" a restaurant. The high prices (midtown 50s!) were a bit of a shock, but the food was wonderful. The service was ideal, and the "cabin" was surprisingly comfortable, considering we were on the street!

Everything was great, lobster toast was amazing. Didn’t realize the escargot came in the shell but was still very delightful. We ordered the steak for 2 and it was divine. Only thing was on the way home I started to feel sick. As did my husband. Not a very good ending but it started out great.

I had birthday dinner with family. I unfortunately couldn't remember our servers name, but he was awesome. Everything was great from the cocktails, to the lovely opera cake that was presented to us for dessert!
Will revisit again soon!
