We were seated quickly. Server was cordial. Server asked about allergies and we noted no dairy. The meal arrived in a timely fashion but her fries were dusted with cheese. Bavette steak was sinewy and tough to chew. Lemon chicken was undercooked showing pink in the center. Very cramped seating space. Not impressed.

Service was very poor. Inattentive at best. I ordered coffee and couldn’t get it because they had no mugs left! For brunch? No mugs. The food came at different times so we couldn’t eat together. The French Toast was cold, soggy and the brown butter apple topping was really cold. I think they forgot to heat it. Other food was average at best. Overall mediocre experience and not likely to recommend. Service and food poor.

We have always been a fan of this chain. On the last visit it was really disappointing. We were there for lunch and it was not crowded, service was bad. Food was just ok and expensive for small portions. I don't think the quality has stayed the same.

Its just OK, certainly not for the price, but OK place to have a snack. I had the burger, messy, sloopy, tasteless, took forever to bring out. place was not busy (lunch) waitress nowhere to be found. Think she went on a break. My guests all had mediocre entrees, old (brown) stale salad, not eaten. Drinks had to ask more than once. Glass of wine, was a child's portion.

Can't return, not for me.

The place is mediocre at best...nothing memorable. There are many more restaurants in NY worth your money, and less expensive. The steak was well cooked, but no-go on crab and avocado, ceasar salad, and cocktails. Wouldn't go back again if it was my choice, and would not recommend.

Wait staff can't wait to see you leave. While the food is excellent, I got the vibe the wait staff is annoyed at you for coming to the restaurant. We had a birthday at our table and called ahead it to see if they could do something as well as checking with the hostess when we got there. The busboy came out threw down the dessert (in front of the wrong person) and stormed away without joining signing while our waitress watched from the corner without attempting to join in signing. I'd understand if the restaurant was busy this night and couldn't join in on the signing, but there were four other tables at the restaurant on this Monday night. They also started packing up the tables around us while we were still eating. Like taking away the tables and chairs signaling to us they wanted us out. It was only 9 pm. I couldn't recommend because the price doesn't match the bad service.

We went to lunch and were happy to see the price fix menu for restaurant week. The food was quite good and the ambiance nice. However the service was abysmal. Not sure if our waitress was new but she hardly uttered a word, had to be signaled by the bartender to come over and take our order. She never asked us for a drink order and when I requested a Bloody Mary she wrote it down but also just waited for our food order so we gave it to her. The appetizers came out pretty quickly but I was really hoping to have my bloody Mary before the food arrived. When that didn’t seem to be the case I called her over and asked her to cancel the drink. Since we were seated close to the bar I could clearly see by the bartender’s response that she did not even put the order in. It was very annoying. Also when we left we walked right by her and she did not thank us or say goodbye. It was a shame but it definitely affected our experience. Which otherwise would have been quite nice.

It is what it is. Noisy UES with OK food and lousy service. Not that the staff didn't make an effort. they just seemed overwhelmed. Too many tables per server. But that is a by-product of the space which is cramped. I thought food was good, but could have been better given the other restaurants. The quality was top-notch but not the preparation. Burgers all came over-cooked. Chicken kale salad was good as was the steak (hard to overcook well done). Peanut butter Bacon app wax ethereal, though. Deserts were "meh" at best.

Only tried during restaurant week so my score is not based on the full experience. Although a bit pricey, it is very good. The burger is excellent, the salmon awesome. There are lapses in the service, but not enough to bother me.

Service was inattentive. One in party ordered a burger. It took several requests to eventual see ketchup and mayo. Salt and pepper also required a special request. Kale chicken salad tasted fine but should probably be labeled kale salad with a hint of chicken.
