    We needed dinner not too far from our hotel for a reasonable price. But what we got was so much more! The only thing better than the butternut appetizer and the hot sesame bread rings with feta butter was the service. Sooo attentive, at the level of a much pricier place (but really, what does it cost to take really good care of your guests...?). And let's talk about price... they put an 18% premium on their bills to ensure that their whole staff enjoys a living wage. They earned every penny. Highly recommend on all fronts.( Pro tip: Start the night with a glass of the pinot noir/chardonnay veuve with the butternut/buratta appetizer)

    AmaliResponded 1 day agoAww, you’re making us blush. Thank you so much for the kind words, Katie. Thank you for taking the time to share about your experience with us. Your review is the kind of review that makes us love what we do even more :). We can't wait to host you again soon!

    Spectacular dinner experience during our visit to NYC. Chef Alex is superb and the flavors of our dishes were distinctive and delicious!! This was the best meal my husband and I have had in a restaurant for a long time, just returned from Iceland and Australia and nothing close to quality and excellent service. The squash and sprouts had crunch and exquisite taste, accented with pistachios and feta. I’m gluten free and everything was carefully prepared and exquisite. The duck was”to die for “ with the cognac sauce, gem salad was crispy and huge. My husband loved his pasta dish and he’s normally very picky. We will be back.

    Awesome wine list. Wonder where they have room to store so many bottles being a smallish room. Cocktails were creative. Whole branzino was very fresh and a large fish. NB-Cauliflower and fingerlings are fried.

    Unreal experience. The staff was very attentive and took great care of us. To start off the apps were delicious - I would definitely recommend the tuna. The pasta is made in house and is incredible. The quinoa encrusted duck is a must. The overall atmosphere of the restaurant is unmatchable. We will definitely be back!

    Overall experience was very good - we were seated promptly and the staff was attentive and friendly. The one small glitch was wine ordering - my friend was inquiring about the Greek wine and was given a taste - decided to order a glass. I had ordered another wine but decided to also taste the Greek wine and ordered my own glass, then the third member of our party ordered her own glass. We informed the waiter that we would have the bottle since we were all having the same wine. We started talking & didn't notice he had not left the btl at the table or in a wine holder. He came around to refill our glasses & we emphasized that we had ordered the btl- he seemed surprised & began telling the 3 of us that he didn't realize that's what we wanted, although each of us recalled telling him that as we ordered. He also said he would have to open a new btl or pour the remainder of an already opened blt in small carafes. We agreed to reduce any stress to ourselves or the waiter but felt it could have been handled better. We did not want this slight oversight to mar our evening so we let the 18% adm fee stand without any mention of this oversight. Most of the evening was pleasant except for this hiccup.

    Three of us were all in the city from different states for a conference and met up for dinner. The food was fantastic. We started with the mezze platter and loved all four options which worked really well with the grilled flatbread. Two of us really enjoyed the scallops and the other loved the linguine with clams. If only we’d had room for dessert. Maybe next time.
