Me and wife went for Valentine’s date. We are free to choose the seat near the wall which is good. The service is okay but not as expected extremely outstanding as 1st, waiter has to be asked to pour the water (other restaurant waiter will continue monitor the water level) 2nd, they confuse the ‘cooked’ level for the order — we order one NY strip for medium well but come out with medium and one surf and turf the steak come out with medium well instead of medium we ordered. But we are fine. 3rd, we saw other tables have the real candle but ours are electric one and in the end there is no battery but it has not been changed yet. The appetizers are great. The sides dishes are also great. The chef/waiter has asked us few times during the meal whether the food is great which is appreciated. Overall it’s a nice steak dinner for Valentine’s date. More

Great experience with my mom and younger sister. Our waiter was really attentive, and the food was really good. The ambiance was also great - the decor looked excellent, and the lighting tied the whole look together. However, my only complaint is the value. We ordered 4 rolls, probably six orders of sushi, three soups, two drinks, and two desserts, and the bill ended up being just short of $200. More

Discover New York

When a city never sleeps, waking hours are spent in cafes, diners, bars and restaurants of every shape and size that give New York its unique flavor. Once famous for pizza by-the-slice (local loyalties run deep), black-and-white cookies, and old world, mahogany-paneled steakhouses—the dining rooms of titans of business and other famous folks—Manhattan is now estimated to have 24,000 restaurants, from midtown’s korean barbecue to fast casual vegan burgers. Pillowy pork buns? You got it. French rotisserie? That too. And, of course, there will always be the perfect bagel, preferably toasted dark with smoked salmon, cream cheese, tomato, onions, and capers.
