    Giovanny was an amazing server! Kudos to the team, being extremely kind and efficient at making drinks and getting food out. The wagyu burger was by far my favorite and the cheese curds were amazing.

    Sat in solarium - very loud. Cheese curd app was good but sauce was quite different. Chicken cordon bleu was huge and very good. Lobster Mac’n cheese was overpriced and not good. Barely any lobster in it. Ended up not eating it and split the chicken.

    The food and service were very good. However, it was cold in the restaurant, and you could tell that our server had too many tables. He was great and very knowledgeable, but we had long waits to order, get our bill, etc.

    Pork nachos were way over cooked to the point of not being melted but hard baked. union burger was very average; not juicy but dry. Fries were great though. Steak medallions were so-so. Very average food for the prices.

    This was an unexpected treat. We had a reservation in the main dining room - which is lovely - but asked for the rooftop when we got there because… we didn’t know. The food, the service, the flexibility with our reservation to seat us where we wanted, the drinks, the people, the crowd. Five stars. Our server, Molly - 10 stars. We’ll be back soon.

    Made a reservation for the main dining but when we arrived the hostess told us it was booked so go upstairs and tell their host stand she sent us and they’d find us a table. She was friendly & it was totally fine w us. We go upstairs and get nothing but attitude and are told they have nothing & go back downstairs. After minutes of waiting again and being treated like this was all our fault (it wasn’t??) we were finally seated but told by the “host manager” to dine quickly. Again not our issue, we made a reservation. However our server was positively lovely, food & drinks were great. I’ve never felt so mistreated by a host manager. It’s a really bad way to start someone’s experience.

    This place has really gone downhill in terms of service. The food was ok, not outstanding and the place looked like it could use a remodel. I hadn’t been here in a while but I’m not planning to come back soon. I ate on the main level but I felt the roof top was a better experience.

    Was not told there would be a limited menu when I made the reservation. Took forever for a server to come to our table. We both got the classic breakfast and it was obviously sitting out because in 90 seconds our food came out. Bacon was not warm, toast had no butter or anything, and the scrambled eggs were wet from sitting. For $44 (with auto gratuity) the service was bad and the food was worse.

    In my reservation I asked for somewhere quiet? When we arrived we were seated at a high top table in the middle by the bar. Extremely loud with a lot of people coming and going. In the reservation they asked if we were celebrating an event. I noted a birthday. Apparently the information provided on open table is not reviewed by the restaurant. There was no mention of a birthday and our seating was far from a quite area. We were looking for a nice meal in a place we could talk. We didn't want to spend top dollar for seafood and wine at a high top table. This ruined the mood and celebration. We could not tell from the photos that this was actually a bar and not really a restaurant or we wouldn't have kept the reservation. We ended up getting sandwiches so that we could get out and to the theater. The sandwiches were good, but we ordered an appetizer that came when we were halfway through with our meal. I'm not sure that we will go back.

    Great service and everyone enjoyed their meal. Noise level on the main floor is much lower than the Rooftop (when closed) which was wonderful. Our server was fantastic, and the whole staff seemed very aware that everyone in the restaurant was heading across the street for Hamilton at 7:30. Service was prompt, efficient, and friendly. Will absolutely go again!

    Better than expected! We were in the city for a concert and picked the restaurant for the location. We were pleasantly surprised. The service was great, the drinks were tasty, and the food was wonderful. I had the shrimp and pesto rigatoni and my daughter had the mac and cheese with shrimp. I did add a little salt and pepper, but it's better than coming with too much salt and it was perfect after that. We were both happy with everything. Both portions of dinner and drinks (margarita and pear martini) were large as well.

    Made a reservation and was told we had to wait 15-20 minutes when we arrived. Finally got a table and it took a long time for our drinks to arrive, the kitchen had run out of multiple food options, and it just seemed very disorganized. They wait staff was very friendly and discounted our meal but I’m not jonesing to give them a second chance.
