    I always enjoy my time at Restaurant506. I invited a few friends this time and they are still raving about their experience. i did not want to leave due to the food, the vintage ambience along with the Buckingham palace staircase. I really enjoyed my pear and thyme mimosa and of course, the decadent "Sanford" brunch. I cant wait to visit again.

    This is an excellent restaurant with absolutely delicious food!! You will not be disappointed! We enjoyed the shrimp pasta, jumbo scallops, steak, and amazing salads. The beet and arugula salad with in house cheese was the best. This is a little gem of a restaurant-make reservations in advance!

    The service and food were not up to usual, especially the service. We had a reservation for 4. We were walked by a table for 4 and were seated at one with only 3 place settings. Took way too long for waiter to come and then to get 4th place setting. Waiter disappeared and we waited for him to return to take our order. He never told us about the special of the day that we only heard about as waiter at another described after we had ordered. Salmon was barely cooked. Overall, very disappointed. Hopefully next visit will be better.

    I absolutely love this place, so I am so sad to write this. 506 is lovely and we have visited here for years for celebrations and get togethers, but I cannot handle the price increases. The prices went up at least by 1/3 in the last few months. It is totally unreasonable now, despite the ambiance and great service. $40 for a chicken breast stuffed with cheese is out of control. $60 for halibut? $65 for pork tenderloin? I understand there is an inflation issue, but this is excessive. All of the (very small) appetizers are now in the $20 range. I am glad the place was still packed and I wish them the best, but I'd rather spend my money elsewhere.
