    They weren’t open on time and when they opened the host was putting on his pants and said the chefs weren’t even there yet. We left before we got any food.

    Restaurant was understaffed. Wrong orders given. Service was slow because there was only one person doing the job of a hostess, bartender and waiter. Waste of $. Food was also cold and bland.

    Sorry to say but the food was awful. A strange combination of overcooked or undercooked for pretty much everything. In addition to being ill prepared, the food was pretty tasteless. Service was friendly but not professional. I wouldn't recommend but if you want to see for yourself, go soon - hard to imagine it will be around for long.

    We were looking for a local place to get some dinner whilst visiting NY from England. This place is amazing. The staff are welcoming, friendly and professional. They couldn’t do enough to make our time there comfortable. We had three courses all of which were fantastic. Service was attentive and prompt but not in your face. Our food arrived at just the right time; not too long but enough time to chat and relax. The food looked and tasted fantastic - great quality for the price, so excellent value. Fillet Mignon is a must or try The Original, an Angus burger to die for! Chef happy to adapt dishes to our request and the flavours were incredible. This is a really cool place to eat and was so good we went back later in the evening for drinks at the bar. Again staff were really engaging and made superb cocktails and were really interesting to get to know. A great vibe in a convenient location. I would highly recommend and we’re going back again tonight!

    The food was very good, and our waiter was trying very hard. The restaurant, however, doesn't quite have its act together. We had reservations for 7:30 but weren't seated until 7:55 because the kitchen was "overwhelmed." The service was well-meaning but haphazard. Needed: a firm manager.

    Just awful! When you at least 40 minutes after placing your order and your "server," who is clearly pitching in only because they are woefully short staffed, l finally plops your appetizer and main course on the table at the same time. And the main course is room temperature and you ask him if they actually serve the dish at room temperature. And he gives you a little shade and says "Why do you ask?" And you hand him the pate and ask him to feel the temperature for himself. And as he walks away to warm to you say the person across the table--Oh, great, now they're just going to microwave it. And when he comes back a very few minutes later with it only slightly warmer he makes a big point of saying he'd put it in the oven because they "don't have a microwave." And it's only then you realize the dish advertised as being "placed on a selection of glazed rainbow baby carrots and mashed potatoes" has neither a carrot nor a potato in sight. This is watching a restaurant in catastrophic freefall.

    To be fair - they said they had been robbed that morning. The staff was apologetic - but the kitchen was a total disaster. To be greeted with "the items on the menu that are grayed out are not available" - and it was more than half the menu. If the drinks hadn't been great we would have left, probably should have. No buns for burgers, no ingredients for salads, and cold cacio e pepe with lots of pepper but no cheese or oil. Nice ambiance, but the kitchen is in trouble.

    We had a 6pm reservation and by 7:30pm had not received our 2nd round of drinks or entrees. We ended up leaving because we had an 8pm Broadway show. Appetizers we had were good but clearly some kinks that need to be worked out

    this was the second time I went to this restaurant, the first time it was just me and my wife, without reservations. The service was great and so was the food. The person, who was hostess also attended to us and she did an incredible job, so we came back, now with friends from outside NY. Unfortunately this time the service was bad, the same person attended us and did a great job, but the food took too long to come, we had an appointment, so we started asking to see what was happening, 1 hour after we sit and still waiting our food. Finally, a person brought two dishes and when we asked what it was, he didn't know and went back with our food to the kitchen. Upon returning he announced the dishes, there were still 4 dishes left, but when questioning nobody knew about them! After a few minutes and asking again we received the answer that it would take another 15 minutes, unfortunately we had to cancel. The restaurant is incredible! We will be back! The food is great ... but this kind of service can kill the restaurant, they need to pay attention. Small details make a difference .... for example ... we receive the full check, without any discount, we leave without eating and hungry, staying without food until after our show. Small details in attendance that they need to pay more attention to.

    I found The Restaurant on Open Table, and what a find it was. The space is lovely and feels relaxing. The food is creative and delicious. I had the beets with falafel, the black bass with kale and the chocolate pudding with chicories for dessert. Everything was great and my server Leonard was excellent. A fine addition to the area's dining scene.

    were a group of 6 & sat in back room which was quiet & comfortable. Food was varied & terrific. Between all of us we tried different menu items. From oysters(cold & tasty) to mac & Cheese to the best Sauteed Cauliflower with unusual items on top . Black bass was well prepared and the sauce matched,-top dish, pot roast was tender & just like MaMa makes, with meatloaf made with veal!!!!. Salmon should be cooked medium & so tasty.fries are crispy las we all liked them. Save room for desert- Chocolate pudding tops off the meal with just the right amount of sweetness. No specials the night we were their so we didn't have a taste of the head chef's real creativity. We all will return.

    The food here was really quite good. It was a late dinner so I ate "light" and had the anchovies and mac and cheese. Both were excellent. Also, the gem lettuce salad was nicely dressed. Chocolate pudding, the only dessert available, was interesting and pretty good for a pudding. Our server was inexperienced - it was very cute that she really tried to memorize our order but came back soon and we re-ordered as she wrote it all down. Otherwise, the service was competent. The only REALLY disappointing thing was the cocktails. Interesting descriptions, but not good. The server mixed up my "sazerac" and fellow diners "margarita" and we couldn't really tell the difference based on the flavor of the alcohol.

    The service was very nice and the people were friendly. The two main courses we ordered, meat loaf and cheeseburger were very disappointing and in the opinion of both of us, below basic diner quality, let alone worth the prices that were charged.

    We had the roast chicken for two. It was excellent; very tasty succulent and tender. The broccolini and camille sauce were delightful, although I would have wished more of the vegetable. Nice table for two and the waitress serving us was cheerful and enthusiastic. Very efficient and solicitous also. My only disappointment was the after dinner coffee... too strong and bitter I thought. Otherwise a nice find.

    Wow! Hell’s Kitchen’s newest diamond in the ruff. The service was impeccable, the staff was so friendly and helpful in every way. Our party hadn’t all arrived at the same time so we sat at the bar for a while. The artisan cocktails were as delicious as they were inventive & fresh. Once the food came out we were pleasantly surprised as to how much preparation had gone into the plating and presentation, not to mention the fine cuisine itself. The ambiance is also “très chic” to say the least. All in all an uncut gem in one of New York’s most iconic neighborhoods, a must go!

    Four of us ended up at "The Restaurant" after a show at Birdland, because it was convenient and the reviews were stellar. Our mind was blown by the quality of the food; every dish was very good or excellent. The service, lighting and music were beyond reproach. For reference, the night before we'd dropped $100/ person on a trendy-hoity-toity dinner at Cosme, and our evening at The Restaurant was 1/2 the price and a superior dining experience in virtually every way.

    My girl friends and I had a little reunion dinner here the other evening, and The Restaurant is amazing! We started off with some delicious signature cocktails and sharing plates, which included the Montauk Squid, Pickles & Preserves, the Burrata, and the Cauliflower. All of which were to die for. We ended up ordering a handful of entrees such as the Ora King Salmon, a Veggie Burger with a side of Fries, the Royal Trumpet Tetrazzini, and the Black Bass. Every dish was delectable and you could taste the freshness of the ingredients. A modern and unique take on American cuisine, The Restaurant scored an overall 10 with us. The decor has a laid back feel that mixes a kind of Hamptons look with the nautical ropes overlaying and intertwined/ weaved on the ceiling and a NYC loft industrial look with the exposed brick and pipes. Oh and lastly, they had the best playlist playing throughout our dinner. My friends kept their Shazam handy at all times ;) I highly recommend taking a trip to Hell's Kitchen to dine at this gem in the center of Manhattan ♥
