We really liked our appetizers and snacks but the entrees were mediocre (well-cooked but poor flavor combinations) and desserts were not good.

Came here with a group of 4 for a restaurant week lunch special. The restaurant was pretty empty for lunch time on a Friday but we were all the happier as we had attention from the servers, didnt have to have competing conversations and were able to enjoy our meal leisurely without being rushed out. Each plate of food was better than the next and the specialty cocktails are not to be missed. I enjoyed the Golden Boy cocktails almost too much as I could've kept drinking them all day long. For lunch my group enjoyed sharing the Grilled Broccoli, Spaghetti with Uni and the Warm Lentils to start. The warm lentils dish with a poached egg on top made everyone at the table a fan of lentils for the first time ever. For our entrees we enjoyed the Fried Chicken, Salmon (kinda dry) and the Dry Aged 14oz Strip Steak. The desserts were just OK so I would recommend filling up on the appetizers/entrees and going somewhere else for an after dinner treat.

This was amazing cuisine and staff was very attentive. This was a great lunch, the best fried chicken and salmon I've ever had. The drinks are also on point! I will definitely be back, but glad I picked this for Restaurant Week 2017

A little overpriced for what it is. Not a lot of wines by the glass to choose from and the wines by the bottle are overpriced. Service was beyond slow.

This place used to be our favorite restaurant in NYC but it's far from what it used to be.
Food is still good but the tasting menu was just small portion of what's on the menu and nothing more innovative.
The image and ambiance is a bit weird, really under what it could be.
This place could be an awesome gastronomic restaurant and the chef definitely has the talent for that but it's only a good brasserie type place.
