    The food, the welcome, the ambience, and the billiards room were truly terrific! The fact that they had moderately priced entrées was also a plus at this Michelin star rated restaurant. Our only wish, since we were with people who enjoy several cocktails, is that the drink prices were not quite so high. I realize it's Manhattan (But still)... That being said, we will definitely be back! The host, Peter, and our waiter. Evan made us feel right at home!

    Unfortunately this restaurant was a real disappointment after having very high for it. The menu was nice and appealing, staff, cocktails and ambiance good however the food and quality were disappointing. The portions were HUGE and not what you would expect from such a restaurant. Too large and honestly off putting. My husband had the pork chop……not good quality and dry.

    Got the recommendation from one of our kids who travels to NYC on business and entertains clients there. We were in for the weekend socially. The service was spot on, like clockwork. The meals very well prepared and delicious. The chocolate caramel dessert was amazing. We are in our 50’s. We loved the upbeat, hip vibe but didn’t feel old and irrelevant. Loved the music, but we could definitely hear each other speaking. Will absolutely go back. Well done!

    Have been before and the service, food & all round experience was excellent. On this occasion the service was terrible. Really slow and not particularly attentive at all. The oysters came out served in a wooden box that leaked water all over the table as the ice melted. A clear design fault and the staff weren’t particularly apologetic despite the water dripping all over the lap of one member of our party. Majority of the food was superb but the scotch egg was unfortunately underwhelming as it had been over cooked and the yolk was hard.

    We were quite disappointed with our experience here: 1) we ordered a bottle of white wine which was served at room temperature. We were absolutely fine waiting for it to be chilled before being served, but the waiter placed it into an ice bucker with mostly water. After a few mins he returned and poured us full glasses of warm wine. We then asked for it to be frozen before any more was served to us, which he accommodated. 2) For the price of the food and experience, we were surprised that we had to request our water glasses to be refilled. We were also surprised no one came to ask how our meal was going throughout the evening. 3) When a table of "VIPs" sat down at the table next to us, they had several servers and the manager personally waiting on them. Needless to say, the service to our table was reduced and so we decided to end our evening here.

    Still my favorite restaurant these days. The Scotch egg is SO good and so is the Tandoori chicken. I never seem to deviate from these choices because I crave them. Always first rate service and you can’t beat the gorgeous rooms with stunning photos. Nothing negative to say.

    It was our worst experience ever in a restaurant. We set at 8:30 PM and didn’t have the main course until 10:00…at this time we decided not to wait anymore and left the place. The shift manager apologised but failed to fulfil the basics: bringing the order on time. He was clever enough not to charge us for the wine and first course that we had. It is a disgrace that such a place was so frustrating. We left it hungry and humiliated.

    While the food was good, service was lacking. We had to ask for bread when other tables were served bread. Empty cocktail glasses lingered on the table. Then, there was a hair in our baked Alaska. For a bill total of ~$600 for 4 people, it was a disappointment. I now understand why they lost their 1 Michelin star.

    A little disappointing. Nothing bad but nothing over the top great. Beef Wellington and the chicken both rather bland. Not up to the standards of a Michelin star but I gather the star was removed.

    Excellent food, and exceptional service. Paying and splitting the bill among friends was exceptional since you could scan the QR code individually and pick what you ordered to pay for it.
