    An attractive, smaller scale midtown restaurant, all in stylish white. The Mediterranean food was good but on the whole not exceptional. Fish is hard to cook, and the red snapper was a bit dry and over-grilled. The place was not busy but the service seemed a little disorganized, out of focus, although the staff was friendly enough.

    Overall, it was a pretty good experience for my partner and me. We were celebrating a belated Valentine's Day, and the waitstaff all made it very sweet. They were willing to allow us to choose a seat ahead of time. The food was pretty good, but not the best that we've ever had. We're from Los Angeles, so we were prepared for some higher prices in New York City. However, we still felt like the price a little high based on the service and the quality of food. Also, abiance-wise, the restaurant was in a hotel that seemed a little lower quality and an odd fit with the restaurant.

    The restaurant is pretty and the people are lovely. My daughter is vegan so I thought a Mediterranean restaurant would be a good choice for a pre theater dinner. The food was lackluster and things like lentil soup and hummus were made with milk or cream. W were very disappointed. Our waitress tried hard to find things my daughter would eat and said they were getting a new chef. Hopefully or she will will be more authentic to the food type.

    The drinks were delicious. As for starters, the Greek salad, shrimp (a little u der cooked) steak fries were all unseasoned, and the hummus was chunky. Our entrées, steak and salmon were both raw. After returning both dishes, they came back way over done. The worst part was, I felt ill after the meal. Overall, I am not pleased with the dinning experience at all.
