They charged us for extra bottle of wine. When we asked them why - the answer was SORRY. I don’t think it’s normal at this kind of places...

I made the reservation several month before and was expecting my table to be in the dinning area not outside next to the entrance. It felt like being place outside of the resturang. Also they cleared our table before all of us had finished to eat. I have been here before and been happy so this was a surprice to me.

My sister and I had lunch during restaurant week on Feb 5, 2020. We both elected to have the escargot appetizer and the salmon entree. Both were exquisite, particularly at the $26/lunch Restaurant Week price. The salmon was cooked as ordered, medium rare, and the surrounding flavors were very complementary. The initial bread offering was delicious, though likely quite fattening, as it was very infused with oil or butter already. The escargots (6) came with a number of small frosty bread slices. Also wonderful. Our waitress, a young lady originally from California like my sister is, was delightful and helpful beyond the menu, offering thoughts about neighboring sights and attractions. Her name was Alana? Elana? Elena? Sweet and very capable and hospitable. Kudos to her, as well as the other staff who attended us.

The food was delicious. Seating nice. The reception really great. The server was lovely. Just a little bit slow to get out order because it was slightly understaffed but the whole team could not have been more kind and professional.

While the meal was a good value we used the rest week menu. At their regular prices it would have been a poor value

Branzino was spectacular, enough for two. Servers need a little more "seasoning" so they can explain menu items. Overall, good meal and we will be back.

Everything went smooth - we found the food a bit on the salty side, which caused the one docked star.

We’ve eaten here many times before. The food is great, the ambience is great and most of the time help is great. Everybody but I waiter was great this time. After taking the initial order he just walked past and kept ignoring us even though I kept calling him over. My wife had a kale salad with Chicken and asked for some bread with it. That never showed up either. The next time I saw the waiter was when he handed me the check to pay saying thank you expecting a big tip. I tipped him 12% which in retrospect was 12% too much. Didn’t feel like complaining at the restaurant as I didn’t want to ruin a good meal

We had a diner before the nye-party at the Top of the standard. Service was very good, but the price for the food was very expensive to our standards. Food was of course ok, but not outstandingly special.

I’ve eaten here many times - summer outside always great food and service. Inside not so much. Although they comped my meal, the lamb chops came out rare (ordered medium ) then came back overcooked with cold couscous. Third time inside with food issues. Love the hotel and property, but gotta get the kitchen right.

Nous avons eu une expérience détestable dans cet établissement ( établissement que nous avions beaucoup aimé lors d’une précédente visite à New York )nous avons dû attendre 30 minutes avant de pouvoir entrer dans le restaurant, notre réservation avait soit disant été oubliée ! Un événement ( Chanel ) était organisé dans une partie de l’hôtel et du restaurant
Nous avons dû aller de personne en personne afin de pouvoir finalement être installés à une table ! Dans un restaurant où il faisait très fois les portes étant ouvertes pour cet événement !
Bref détestable dans l’atmosphère et l’attitude !
Le seul point positif était le service de notre serveuse Katy très souriante et professionnel malgré tout cela

We made the reservations few weeks in advance and they never told us that main dining room will be close at the time for our dinner. We have to sit close to the bar and food quality and temp was low quality but they charge you top dollars. Was not impressed at all. We have better choices around meat packing district.

Not my first meal here.
Shunted by the host to a less than preferred table. We were told that the table we requested was reserved, but no one sat there during our meal.
The food was good, but not spectacular.
Service was good.

I recently took my boyfriend here for his birthday. If you want to impress someone this is the place. Great ambiance, we had a very nice booth that I requested in advance, and the food was incredible. I asked the waiter for recommendations and the squid ink pasta was amazing. The service was excellent. Highly recommend

It took at least 15 minutes for the food server to make it to our table. We had already had ample time to peruse the menu so after hearing the specials we ordered. It took at least another 25 minutes to receive our salad apps and shrimp cocktail - 25 minutes! We also ordered a filet mignon that was a special on the menu - was only 9 oz yet they charged $85 and the server didn’t disclose the price when offering the special. I eat out in NYC all the time and $85 for a 9oz Filet is quite high, or if that’s what it’s truly worth then they should disclose the cost when describing the special. A NY strip on the menu was $39, so the leap to $85 seems egregious. It also came with no sides at all, so the fries were extra. The meal took so long to come that we had to go, so we just requested the check and didn’t even look at dessert.
The service was friendly but the kitchen obviously couldn’t keep up and I was turned off by the cost of the filet. 3 out of 5 stars max.

The menu is good and thoughtful; the staff efficient and smooth. You are a New York one can like, even if a trip the loo is a through the looking glass experience. I want to come again, eat more, and stay longer. What a sane and comfortable place.
