    Food was incredible and management was wonderful! There was a glitch in the system where our order didn’t get put through to the kitchen and they brought us an extra round of drinks while we waited and more than made up for it when the bill came.

    Noisy young children were seated at the bar, which was not appropriate, especially in an upscale restaurant on the UES. Had been looking forward to a dozen or two oysters, but they were mediocre, not cold enough, with some of them tasting mealy. I never put anything on oysters, but this time felt the need for cocktail sauce to try and improve the taste. Other dishes excellent, as was service. But, especially given the high cost, experience very unsatisfying.

    The restaurant had great ambiance and service. The food was delicious and had great presentation. I didn’t give the food 5 stars because my husband asked for medium rare for his steak but it was medium well. Overall experience was great. The bacon appetizer was amazing!!

    It started well with personable service and interesting menu. My problem was that I ordered a steak that was highly recommended done medium. It came nearly raw. Then the servers disappeared and my wife continued to eat because I didn’t want to spoil her meal. When I found someone to address the issue to much time had passed, I would have been staring my meal while my wife sat and watched. Nothing bothers me more than a chef who doesn’t pay attention to a preparation request. My servers did try and make it right but once we got to the point of no return it just didn’t matter.

    I love this restaurant. I’ve brought clients, come with my husband, and rented the back, private room for a major event. Tonight was NOT my favorite night. Bread and amuse were on the table before we were ever approached for drinks. Waiter didn’t really know if he had a bottle of rose and how much it cost. Then, when we ordered a second bottle, he just poured it right into the glasses with the remnants of the first bottle- no”did you want to taste the second bottle before I pour?” Never checked in “how are your meals?” I had to flag him form to order dessert and to get the check. Basically had the service of a busy diner tonight (although it wasn’t that busy!!) So frustrating!!

    Went here for Restaurant Week. The food was pretty tasty, but nothing really stood out or was memorable. I had the lobster dumplings, the mushroom cavatelli, and the strawberry panna cotta. The appetizer and entrée came right away, but dessert took nearly 40 minutes after finishing the entrée and then the check took another half an hour. We were also charged for a drink we didn’t order, but they compensated us for that. It’s a decent spot to check out, but I’m not sure that it’s worth a second visit.

    Cocktails, appetizers and most of the entrees were amazing. The only negative was the chicken dish. The chicken was so dry & overcooked and the carrots were barely cooked but the pea purée, pistachio ravioli & pistachio chimicurri were outstanding. The pasta entree with asparagus, mushrooms & truffles was sinfully delicious & the desserts were outstanding. Service was good but once entrees hit the table they never came back to ask how the food was. I only ate a few bites of the chicken because it was so dry & they didn’t ask if it was okay.

    Having been there before and finding the food very good and well priced, was disappointed that they changed the brunch pricing. They upped the price to $50 per person. It does include a three course menu and a choice of extra course (not main) or a glass of wine, it is too high. In our group of 6 none wanted to order that much food. Previously they had a 3 course in the neighborhood of thirty dollars a person which was great. The restaurant was not busy at 1pm on Sunday.

    Restaurant Week dinner: Bison Short Ribs - it was plural on the menu, but the dinner was one small piece of rib meat and the shrimp grits, which had one (yes large, but overcooked) shrimp. Pretzel covered crabcake was disappointing as an appetizer, very heavy. Angry dumplings are delicious, but overpriced, price listed is $19 for three dumplings. Pasta selection was fine.

    Excellent dinner, went with a friend for restaurant week. Pretzel crusted crab cake was phononial, pork loin with garlic clam was amazing but wish I got the apple desert instead of the Panna catta. Restaurant itself it very nice and service was good. Appetizer came out extremely fast but waited a while for the entree. Also very strange thing was they had a “name your price” for bottles of wine which I think degrades the ambience of the restaurant. Over all great dinner and would recommend to a friend to go and enjoy.

    Meal was good. The Apple tart desert was amazing!! My 13 year old daughter doesn’t even like apple pie but loved this tart. First table they sat us at was noisy but they happily moved us to a quieter one. My daughter had gotten a blister on the walk over and the waiter tracked down a bandaid for her. He went above and beyond.

    OUTSTANDING, from start to finish. We were there Friday 8/3 for NYC Restaurant Week. The food was spectacular. The service was spectacular. Special thank you's to Orlando and our server Danielle A. and thanks to Chef Burke - while we did not get to see you Friday your presence was felt in your restaurant in every part of the evening. We will back. Thank you all so much!

    caesar salad -underdressed; croutons on salad were soggy, coffee much too weak; waiter left the coffee pot on table to help myself for more coffee, but took away the sugar and sweetener so I had to ask again for same. Portion size of entree way too small; I had scallops and octopus. Octopus was tough and they gave me TWO scallops....very meager portion. Not served with any potato, but one large sprig of broccoli. Very disappointed in David Burke restaurant. Also, when we ordered dessert, I told him NOT to bring dessert sooner than coffee, as I only want them together; he looked at me as if I was asking for the impossible. He said he would try so I replied, "if you can't bring them together, skip the coffee," which was so weak, I was sorry I even ordered it.

    We went during restaurant week. The appetizers and mains were really good. Service got off to a rocky but acceptable start and got progressively slower. The dessert was laughably terrible. We waited for over a half hour for it. When I told the waiter that the strong alcohol taste from the meringue that's lit ablaze tableside was so pungent and alcohol forward that I couldn't get past it, he proceeded to mansplain to me that it was rum, and how everyone likes the taste of strong alcohol. Sorry buddy, if I wanted a shot I'd have ordered one. I wouldn't ask you to haphazardly douse my dessert in it. I've had flambéd dessert before and it hasn't tasted like gasoline. Then we waited another half hour for the check. Yikes. Wouldn't go back, and wouldn't recommend anyone try it outside of restaurant week.

    Food was good, and a great value during restaurant week. Sadly, the noise level was almost intolerable. I could not hear my companion across the table and the table next to us moved twice in search of a bit of quiet.

    If you're going to participate in restaurant week, please do so graciously rather than reluctantly. It definitely detracts from the experience. Also, your wine markup is totally unreasonable. Most restaurants charge 200 to 300% of the cost of the wine. Your markup is around 500%. I certainly don't mind paying 300% but 500% is outrageous and I refuse to be ripped off.
