    Wonderful evening at Sojourn. Has a fun vibe and staff was very attentive. We had an arugula salad, tuna tartare and chicken satays. All were exceptional! Great value as well. We shared everything and left satisfied and not over full. We will go back for sure!

    Wated a really long time for two cappuccinos after cake and ice cream was served. Ice cream melted by the time the coffee came. I told the owner who said he would let the kitchen know. I would have expected the desert or coffee be taken off the bill. It wasn't. Disappointed.

    We have eaten here for years. We generally eat the same four dishes. They are always exactly the same as the last time. Consistency has always been a strong point in food and service at this restaurant.

    Went on New Years Day for brunch so the service was fairly slow. But the food was great. The coffee was a bit too dark for my liking.

    The food was incredible and the New Year's menu was really diverse. It got darker and louder as the night went by which we felt if was unnecessary. Overall, it was a good meal and a fair price. Would go again.

    The food was delicious. The place was full so the energy level was high but then they put on some odd music which was too loud and resulted in having to talk really loudly to have a conversation.

    They couldn't seat us because they booked out the back of the restaurant for a party and forgot to cancel our reservation (like they said they did with every other customer). We had to last minute find another place for 6 people on the Upper East Side on a Saturday night at 8pm...not the easiest.

    Sojourn was CLOSED when we got there, as was 46 Bistro on Friday night, October 20th, & we had it reserved for dinner with friends before a Broadway show. It was a disaster trying to find another place to eat. You REALLY NEED to communicate with the restaurants on your site, because it can ruin someone's vacation to have reservations & then arrive at the restaurant to find it closed. POOR COMMUNICATION AND SERVICE ON YOUR PART, OPEN TABLE. BOO HISS.

    The music was too loud! (I'm not talking about the live bar music, I'm talking about the piped in music.) One should never have to STRAIN to hear their dinner partner; music should be in the b-a-c-k-g-r-o-u-n-d.

    DO NOT EAT HERE IF YOU HAVE FOOD ALLERGIES. While ordering we told our waitress that I have a severe seafood allergy. The waitress had noted it down and sent the order to the kitchen. Our food came and we started eating. A few bites later, our waitress came and asked if she could take my plate, putting her hand over my fork. apparently the rice in my food was made with oyster sauce. This is something the chef completely missed. It was our waitress who had the inclination, and her response was to first stop me from eating and then to check with the kitchen. Kudos to how she handled it, I wish I remembered her name. But by then the damage was done. I had to be taken to the emergency room where they had to subject me to multiple life saving measures. When my fiancé when to speak to the manager (after I was stable) he gave him the usual we are sorry BS but it felt insincere. They even initially asked us to pay for the meal (minus the offending entree). Save your health and money and go eat at an establishment where they will value your life and take your allergies seriously.

    A pleasant restaurant with relatively uninspired food. The fried zucchini flowers were a big disappointment, the breading would have been more appropriate for shrimp and was far too heavy for this more delicate item.

    Got there when they opened. The bar area was in disarray due to some background lighting being installed. Greeted, asked what I’d like to drink and promptly served. That set the tone for a wonderful dining experience.

    NOT GOOD FOR DIETARY RESTRICTIONS. My mother has a severe gluten allergy and we called ahead to ensure they could accommodate her. on the phone they assured me they could. upon getting there, the waitress ran back and forth from the kitchen to confirm with the chef multiple times. ultimately we didn’t feel comfortable that my mom wouldn’t get sick from cross contamination or ignorance to what is and isn’t gluten free. we left without eating or drinking (rated those neutrally as i cannot comment on them) if you can’t accommodate allergies, fine. but we called ahead and we’re assured they could accommodate. if you have food allergies, it’s not worth it

    Our experience was completely disappointing. It was so dark inside we had to use our cellphones to read the menu. The service was terrible. It was quite loud inside. And the food was probably the biggest let down of all. Menu offerings seemed great but were poorly prepared, even tasting as though it may have sat under a warmer for a couple hours before it was served. Perhaps it was due to the later reservation time (0830), but my partner was stuck at work late and there’s no excuse for such poor quality. Certainly will not be returning!
