    The appetizer was bland and over priced as are most dishes. The mains were very good but for the price? Main problem was that the server who was very nice, but....when I got the bill it’s $132 for 2 people. Okay I understand it’s in a hotel on park ave. No problem, I give the credit card and when it comes back it, the bill is $151. An 18% tip added to charge without any explanation or anywhere in writing does it say tip included yet at the bottom they allow you to tip again. Had I not looked closely I would have doubled tipped. Honestly I would have tipped 20% but because no one told me or had it in writing I felt like I was scammed. I understand the mandatory %18 for tables over 6 or 8 but 2? Not cool!

    The only thing I did not like was the music being piped into the dining space. Not sure what it’s called but I’ll call it new-wave, electronic music; was song after song of one repetitive rhythm, which got on my nerves pretty quickly. Maybe “hipsters” like it. No bueno for this 65-year-old. Food and service was very good though.

    This is a typical fine-dine restaurant that looked like it was part of a hotel or a hotel's dining area. It lacks character...so it is difficult to categorize it or highlight anything. The noise level (or the lack of it) makes it good for business meals. The food tasted more French than Italian. If visiting I recommend the Burrata and Gigante.

    Too cool for school waiter (who seemed to think he was some sort of superstar being forced to slum it) in a freezing environment with just ok food. Turned the lights on to make us leave. No atmosphere.

    The food was delicious. However, it took us over 30 minutes to get breakfast, when there were only 3 other tables occupied in the restaurant. They seemed confused and understaffed. Also, a party of 6 came down from the hotel, and 3 women were in bathrobes. That didn't seem to me to be "upscale" as the restaurant advertises and charges for. Very disappointed in our experience.

    Food was great and the service was excellent. The staff checked in on us multiple times and the manager walked us out and held the door for us as we left. Best service experience I've yet had in any restaurant in any city.

    Please train your new servers properly before sending them out to do a job. Our server was unfamiliar with the menu, did not speak loud enough for us to hear her in a very quiet, low key time of day. She appeared nervous, and insecure. I felt bad for her. Not her fault as MGMT should train properly. A business lunch with an expensive tab should have received better service. Food was spectacular though. Delish! Bolognese to die for.

    Lovely restaurant and lovely waiting staff. Food was good however, slightly disappointing that the meatball appetiser arrived cold and the pasta dish was served with hard pasta. A shame as it was a celebratory birthday meal and having been before, we knew the standard of food!

    The highlight was our waiter. He was incredibly attentive and helpful when deciding what our food options were. As the only vegan in the group, I was happy that there was an option for me other than side veggies. The only negative was the bar staff. While waiting for the table it was difficult to get their attention. One of the bartenders hardly smiled. Again, the dining experience with our wonderful waiter made up for that!

    Everything was perfect. The only downside was there was NO ONE there on a Friday night at 8:30. This was my second time there and the last time was an awesome vibe. The place was packed, the food was good and this time there were maybe three other tables of people which was just bizarre. Especially since the food and location are good!

    Food was very good and service was good; however, music was a bit too loud - it felt more like I was in a bar than in a restaurant. I wouldn’t go there on a date. Good for a girls night out or to go with friends. I would go back there.

    Going to chalk up a bad experience to New Year's Day and understaffed restaurant. We went for a Gilt City brunch, and were greeted warmly. Restaurant (in Royalton Hotel) is pretty. Mushroom flat bread/pizza was delicious, but restaurant was out of chicken panini sandwich (it was only 1 pm). Burgers and fries were cold and under-cooked when they arrived - sent one back to be warmed up, and it was nearly 1/2 hour before we got it back (so 2nd entree by then was inedibly cold). Fries reheated in the kitchen were still cold. Server was extremely nice, but helpless to a slow kitchen.
