It was my wife’s birthday . We hosted another couple. The whole experience was perfect. The courses were all delicious and the presentations were impressive. The service was impeccable. The right amount of time in between servings. The servers were knowledgeable about all the servings and were able to answer questions we had about any of the dishes presented , in detail. It was a great, memorable evening More

My husband had arranged to have a birthday dessert delivered for me as this was my birthday dinner. He had to follow up with the staff several times. Then when it came time for dessert, our waiter just asked if we wanted anything for dessert and/or coffee.........and this required that my husband had to remind him one more time about the birthday item. It all worked out in the end, but spoiled a little surprise celebration and made him feel less than pleased. The dinner was very good and otherwise, we really enjoyed our evening meal. More

Great experience: cool, minimal decor with good blues/ standards music; attentive service; absolutely delicious, interesting food (with complex layers of flavor & spice, unlike other SE Asian or Indian cuisines); and reasonable pricing. One of the best meals I’ve had in the City, bar none. The lines should be out the door! Especially recommend the Egg Hopper & the cauliflower, but the other dishes (spicy cucumber with a fish-flake topping, soft shell crab, & a tea creme brûlée were also mouthwatering. More

Fringale is an excellent, boutique, French restaurant. The service and food were both outstanding, with the staff both attentive and professional while not overbearing as can be found in more formal settings. The grilled appetizer preparation of calamari was about the best I've had anywhere, as was their fish stew. If you are looking for a French restaurant more akin to what you would find in a village in Provence versus in the heart of Paris, this is your place. More

We ate at the Grill at the St Regis for Mother’s Day brunch. Our server was excellent and the food was excellent as well. Everything was very fresh and nicely presented. The quality was exceptional and the environment was really nice. The table flower arrangements were beautiful and on the way out they gave each mother a beautiful pink rose and a gift of fresh elderberry compote. I would highly recommend this restaurant. We really enjoyed our meal. More

The hamburgers were quite delicious, the pulled-pork sandwich very spicy (but delis.) and the fish tacos our friend said were the best he's ever eaten. Drawback were the ordinary chocolate ice cream with lots of freezer/ice granules and some Very Stale fourth-rate chocolate chip hockey pucks that perhaps once were cookies. A limited lunch menu was not as interesting as our previous evening visit's... More
