With a fire capacity sign stating Max Occ 19 and counting over 40 people inside, I think the restaurant should be more selective in accommodating guests since the service suffered as a result.

Service was ok and overall loud, but cute spot.

The Van Gogh was a disappointment but not Sarafina . We were early and decided to eat inside. Happy to show my proof of vaccination. The waitress was great. We ordered martinis and forgot to say very dry and she took them away and replaced them! Her food suggestions were spot on. We enjoyed everything we ate. I’d eat there again in a minute. Might make a special trip.

Why advertise on the restaurant week nyc website AND their own website about their restaurant week menu BUT NOT HONOR IN PERSON?! Establishment that is so dishonest like this- how can you have confidence and faith that when you bring your guests you are getting what you are expecting? Will not be returning- ever.

The menu is a little pricey, but the food is good. I had the penne arrabbiata & added shrimp.The waitress(es) were a little distracted. More than once, I had to ask for something twice, but everyone was extremely nice. I’d definitely say it’s worth a try.

Drinks and food were amazing but from the moment we got there she started with attitude. We had a reservation for 8 people and she was giving us a hard time, later more attitude and later we asked about restaurant week and she just said “no we don’t” and handed the menus. Almost throwing it at us. We would not go back there just because of her.

We ordered the burrata and arugula salad-both outstanding, and the cacio e pepe was one of the best I’ve had.

My friend and I decided whatever because we were hungry. It ended up being great food, great vibes, the waitress was super friendly and kind! Definitely would come again.

He was literally running the whole front of the bar/restaurant show by himself (Except the fantastic cooks in the back kitchen!). He was thorough, kind, handsome, quick, and informative! I loved the shrimp farfalle dish and your arugula salad is amazing!

Not a huge deal, food is already reactively cheap. Just kind of annoying that they advertise it on the website then look at me like I’m stupid lol. Probably won’t go back. Oh well, live and learn.

They put a little table out and the 3of us squeezed in. It was ok and we were mellow about it but no what we expected and disappointing. Otherwise all was great. Service was great and food was amazing,
