    Changed the menu. Favorite eggplant parm taken off. I came for lunch and they had brunch. Mostly egg based offering. I am allergic to eggs.

    Special trip to NYC with my daughter to see some guy named Harry. I’ve visited this gem several times. Always consistent and always great! Last night did not disappoint. My only complaint: Bring back the Lambrusco!

    Ignored by wait staff throughout the meal. No dietary flexibility with the menu. It wasn’t busy, so no reason for either issue. Got our evening off to a bad start. Very disappointed.

    We looked for something close to Madison Square Garden. Found this. Upon entering we Let them know that we were on our way to a show and that we didn’t have an extended amount of time. The food came out super quick the service was amazing and everything was excellent.

    Beautiful restaurant inside of Macy's. High ceilings, very open, with contemporary decor. Food was delicious. Excellent choice of fun cocktails and "mocktails". Probably not the best place for young kids but perfect pre-concert venue for shows at MSG or a shopping trip!

    ランチで夫婦2人で行きました。リクエストの窓側の席でした。眺めも良く店の雰囲気はまずまずなのですが、料理が酷い! ナポリサラダはまあまあ。ステーキ肉はミデアムレアでお願いしたのが、中までしっかり火がとおっていて真っ黒で硬く、 付け合わせのポテトもレンジで温め直しすぎたように硬くて歯が折れそうでした。 クラフトビールもグラスに注いでから時間が経って泡が全て消えてぬるくなっていました。 $118(円安で$1が141円だったので16,500円ほど)はコスパが悪すぎる!2度と行きません!!

    There was hair in the pasta which I saw when I got home. I was with my daughter and she didn’t eat it since she was full from the salad and bread. Yuck!

    Absolutely delicious food. We split a salad and an entree and it was plenty for two for lunch. Excellent coffee. Service was somewhat distracted, but very polite. Odd that no bread was served with lunch - we were told that there would be an $8 upcharge for bread. No thank you!

    Food was good … but it took a long time. Restaurant was not busy so not sure why so slow. Worse part was 1 meal came out way before the rest. My sister ate alone and then had to sit and watch us eat. Other than that the food really was good so maybe just an off day for service.

    Have been coming here for years. Food is consistently done very well. Our server was very nice but was spread thin so couldn’t get him that often. Our entrees took so long that everyone around us got their meals and we still hadn’t. Obviously something was wrong but there was no communication about it. When the food arrived it was perfectly done (fish and steak) but we had to eat fast to catch a show. We did the Restaraunt week special which has increased to $45 a person—not much of a deal there. Anyhow the Restaraunt is very pretty. Staff nice. Food great. But turnaround in kitchen was extremely slow

    Who would expect to find such a fine quality restaurant inside Macy's bedding department? Beautiful, elegant space that is worthy of a visit even if you're not shopping for sheets. Food is spot on delicious . Professional service and a great drink menu makes this a favorite destination for me.

    It was a quick lunch with a business associate. I reserved for 12 noon, was seated within 10 minutes of my (timely) arrival, after a party of 8 (or larger) which came before me. We promptly received the menu, were offered beverages. The orders were taken right away. Food arrived soon. The bill took some time, the server was very busy hopping from one table to another. You can sense they were short-staffed. We were out of there within an hour.

    in the middle of a bustling and busy store is a charming restaurant with views of the beautiful architecture surrounding the building. Our server Jordan could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. My friends and I enjoyed negroni’s, wine, grilled octopus, an array of cheeses and cured meats to start. A funghi pizza, eggplant parmigiana and fresh pasta with roasted tomatoes and ricotta for dinner. We ended with a delicious chocolate dessert. We asked Jordan to introduce us to his manager Krystal Perez so we could tell her how much we appreciated his attentiveness and warm personality. Krystal gave us her contact information for any future reservations. We will absolutely be back and recommend others to visit.

    Food delicious. Not enough servers caused a wait to order, but servers were nice. A bit expensive because there is no bread or pasta with the eggplant dish. Good selection of cocktails.

    service was awful server was so rude and the manager was even ruder. when the customer returns a dish, you don’t proceed to take the dish back to her, get in her face and ask her if the dish was okay. obviously it isn’t since she just sent it back. everyone was served before us who arrived after we did. do not go here it’s so overpriced it’s actually disgusting.
