Burger we wanted well done and it came raw. - Asked for coffee Server: "have to check on it" 30 mins later Server: "its being made" 15 mins later Server: "you want it now? 15 mins later Server: "the coffee machine is broken." - Gratuity already added @ 22%

Great menu items are gone and the ones that remain are different (worse) even though described the same. Service was not good. Missed an item on the order and not even a real apology let alone anything comped, as is customary - still paid full price for the missing item even though we had to wait another 15 minutes for it. Even the fry dipping sauce is now way too runny to be called "aioli." I could go on, but I can only hope management changes back to how it used to be.

We read the reviews and decided to give it a try. It is part of the Hilton Hotel. Main Floor has a bar and then downstairs is the main dining. The decor is very nice and casual. Food was very good, we had the fries to start and it is enough for four people easy. Then we had burgers, wine and the Mac & Cheese, all was very good. For dessert we had the Apple Pie which was wonderful. But best of all was the service, so nice and polite and attentive.

The food wasn't that great, a couple of things were forgotten and such. We had a huge party and the server wasn't set with an expectation of split bills so it became a problem. We should've advised the server, so that's our fault.

Quiet place for a hot date.

As of today, April 2nd no response.. They have a comments section on their webpage. WHY ASK IF NO ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF COMMENTS. Therefore, now sharing our experience. Spent $200 this time. We often see shows at MSG with a large group and do pre-show dinner/drinks. Obviously doesn't need our business. Very disappointing experience on Monday March 18th for dinner at the 26th street location. Our party had 9 drinks at the bar prior to dinner. Service was very good. Would have liked to have sat in corner booth but OMG the ripped up seats are deplorable!! I should have taken a picture. Sat for dinner and very nice service knew we had a show at MSG and was attentive. Had to wait for 2 others in our party. We ordered as soon as they arrived- 7 pm. Asked for Fried Pickles and trio of fries to come out with burgers. Not. Came out prior Server was very apologetic as food (5 burgers) took super long to come out. We ordered 2 more rounds of beers while waiting. Burgers finally came out. I ordered a regular burger lettuce tomato and instead of onion extra tomato. My dish had a corn salsa. In hind-site I should have eaten it. Told the server who said it was an error and the organic burger. Took it back. At this point it was 7:40- sitting from 7 pm Everyone was just about finished when my burger came out I ordered medium rare- Since I was in a rush I would have eaten rare- IT was completely uncooked- RAW!!!!!! my husband eats his meat mooing and said this was dangerously undone. Too late for me to eat. Show called for 8 and we needed to get out of there. He took burger off the bill. No manager came over- SOOO disappointed.

Overall, nice fresh food! Hands down an amazing 3hour dinner! Highly recommend!!!

We wanted our occasional grass-fed beef fix, and this was marketed as a good restaurant for said protein. The advertising for this restaurant - separate from, but integrated into the Hilton property - makes it seem as though you will be dining on a rooftop with "rare" views of Manhattan, and with OpenTable handy to book a reservation, it seems like one may be warranted. Not necessary at all - upon arrival at the host station, it's clear this is a hotel lobby sports bar, and mostly empty. We're offered a spot at the bar or one of the homely tables with a /rare/ view of the hotel lobby through the partition; then, it's mentioned there's a downstairs dining area. Yes, please, there. However, it reveals itself to be a garish dining space, like a Chipotle inside a Doubletree lobby, with poorly thought-out decor and ambience. The host tried to seat us in two bad locations when there was clearly no hustle nor bustle in effect, but all was worked out and the service was OK. The beers we ordered were quite flat, clearly old and not well-maintained for a place charging $8 for a pint of Goose Island IPA. The burgers - cooked, ahem, RARE - were grilled to order and had a nice clean flavor, but no seasoning or anything to make it unique. Good thing it came with a raw white onion, lettuce and tomato! All-in-all, the whole experience was rather humorous, but in reality, not worth going out of anyone's way for. Oh, after we finished our meal, we had to peek the actual rooftop bar - it was lively, if a bit cheesy for my sensibilities, but the views are decent for Chelsea/Midtown. Only catered food, presumably from the downstairs kitchen, was served to a group in birthday revelry. This is clearly a beer and cocktail bar, not where you'll be enjoying a meal.

We were greeted at the door with a smile. Our server was quite nice also. The restaurant was not quite open yet but we were escorted in out of the cold. I did think it was a bit too pricey but overall, good experience. I would recommend.
