I arrived with my date 10 minutes early for our reservation and were immediately seated! The food was amazing! Two pots of mussels, the pate was delicious and the lobster balls (deep fried) really good. Price was a little high but the food service and surroundings made it worth it

Very noisy. Glass dividers made table area very small and server had to keep reaching over me to place dishes on table. Food was excellent

Because it is always a great meal and service it is why I return so often, and I live in Westchester. Their lovely outdoor eating area lends itself to a nicer experience.

A bit lackluster tonight- food and service were just "okay." I don't want this restaurant to become a "hit or miss" because it is usually a hit.

We’ve been here before and like the food, but our server for the evening just couldn’t care less. Barely checked on us, didn’t clear plates, didn’t offer more drinks…obvi just dgaf. The food is good and I like the place but The experience on that particular evening fell really flat.

Food is delicious. If you like seafood and mussels, this is the place to go. We sat outside and the view isn’t great since it’s in e parking lot. Otherwise, it was amazing

Bouillabaisse Mussels, Moscow mules, fondue app and beignets were all excellent. If not for the noise level, I’d give it 5 stars.

Generous portions and lots of nice options to choose from. Mussels are the specialty, but other selections are also delicious. Desserts are outstanding, so try to leave room. Beer fans will rejoice at the numerous options available.

Food is top-shelf however IMHO, pricey. Basic bowl of mussels starts at $35. Noise/music in bar area is deafening. While the music is not pulsing in the main dining area, they need to place some acoustic panels on the walls as the place is still quite loud.

Again, the food was top shelf. Great beer and ale list consistent with what you would find in any upscale bistro. Nice varied wine list. Enjoyed appetizers as well as muscles for the main course. Portions are extremely generous simply did not have any room for dessert!

Despite the noise (my personal complaint on most restaurants) I still highly recommend as most would really enjoy this place. Again, A bit on the pricey side, but certainly what I would call top-shelf cuisine.
