Do not do it. We booked for Sunday brunch and were the only people the entire time. Should tell you something. There were dirty windows and bulbs burned out. I will say the food was decent as was the service but not much fun. Not an enjoyable birthday celebration.

Maybe close and do a reset?

Piano room was a bit cramped. Service was terrible. Ordered 2 appetizers, one of which came after our entrees arrived. Another waiter continued to bump directly into us when he made his way through the dining room. Never apologized until forcefully knocking into us once. Jazz was great and entrees were pretty good but unlikely we'll be back.

This place was amazing; we celebrated my 30th birthday with amazing drinks, superb food and wonderful service! The host, our waiter, the servers etc…were so friendly and tentative. We would love to come back and sit rooftop when it’s not so chilly and windy in the city.

Birthday dinner in piano room with jazz trio at 6:30 pm setting. Enjoyed guitar-woodwind-bass trio who played two 20 minute sets in the background. Entrees were very good; we had grilled salmon and osso bucco. Both were very good and we would happily order them again.
Raspberry sorbet was excellent. Gelato similar to Breyers ice cream was nothing special.

Rip-off.
- Was sold a $50 wine bottle at $125
- Was charged 20% gratuity without being told about it upfront
- Waiter said he'd like to get me a dessert but charged me for it
- Waiter lost my credit card at the end

Loved the atmosphere. Live jazz was a fee but nothing crazy. Tables right by the band. Talented musicians. Ordered lamb and pasta. Food was good. Cocktails and wine selections Didn’t disappoint. Tables were a little close but you could still feel comfortable. Would go again. Very romantic vibe. Parked

Beautiful restaurant.
Great beverage selection.
Paid for “experience” but host scoffed when he confirmed we needed the piano room to listen to the live music- literally the reason we booked.
Took over 20 minutes for someone to take our drink order, and about 15-20 minutes to order food.

It wasn’t terribly busy, but definitely too long for at least drinks.

Also, we were put in the corner when 2 other 2tops were available where we could see the musician instead of the walls.

Will not be returning

Food was just ok. Carbonara was super oily. Tiramisu was heavy and soggy. We were rushed thru dinner because there were several large parties in that evening. We paid the cover for live jazz but didn't get to sit in the piano room. After dinner we tried to have a cocktail at the bar and listen to the music but there was only one seat so they offered to let us stand. One and done.

Quality of the music was mediocre. It was pop, not Jazz. Food was quite good, but there were no moderately priced wines on the menu. Would like to see a house red or a Chianti, so I can afford more than 1 glass of wine.

Neeraj is an excellent proprietor and our server Rich was fantastic. We came here twice before, once just for a drink and once for dinner at the top “outside” for dinner during Covid restrictions. I really wanted the Jazz dinner and we had a great time. Music was great and the food even better.

The service was impeccable - but, our appetizer of calamari was good, but not anything special. We also ordered the wild boar, and it was very salty. Unfortunately, I expected more out of our dining experience, and probably would not come back.

We went there specifically for the music. You need to know if you want to hear the music, you need to request a table in that area. We enjoyed our dinner and went to hear the music after dinner. The food was amazing!

We went on a Sunday night to have dinner and listen to the live jazz. We thought they could improve on the service greatly by doing just a few things. Time between check-ins on our table was long at times. When our food was delivered, we thought our server would come by with fresh ground pepper and parmesan cheese for our pasta (I saw these items brought right away to other tables).
We had to ask for a wine list, which the server took away when we ordered a cocktail upon arriving.
The gentleman who helped us pick a bottle of wine was great, and we wee happy with the selection.

Food was very poor: calamari were overdone (more burned grease than actual calamari) and the pasta carbonara was all but authentic: looked and tasted like mac and cheese. The wine was ok. Staff made you feel like they wanted you out, pronto. I paid extra for piano bar with live music and was stuffed in a small room with no music whatsoever. One of the worst experiences in a long time.

And before anyone counters: I am European and have been to Italy over 20 times. This food is not Italian.
