The burger was too salty as I remembered the last time I ordered. I will stick with the rib eye which is always great and the fish dishes.

Brunch was very good. Good food included a drink, attentive service and very well priced. My friend and I were able to talk and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I’ll go again.

This restaurant was a perfect choice for restaurant week but would be too pricey for me otherwise. The noise level of the lunch crowd in the front room was high but fortunately we ate in the back room which was quite pleasant. The waitstaff were great and the food was delicious. Banana parfait was to die for!

Always consistent but tired of seeing the same menu selection. Specials would be nice or different preparation of the same items.

Rest week 2 courses
Chicken salad was perfection and large
one if best in NY
the waiter packed up first course and we brought it to homeless at church
we felt so virtuous and we couldn't have done it without the waiters willingness and help

It was restaurant week - so I wanted to try the menu. In the end, I went to the tried-and-true scotch salmon and sushi. It was great, just like always. Love the food. Love the staff. Really, you can’t go wrong with anything here.

Nice Restaurant Week menu. Too bad they charge extra for meat on the menu. It is a steak restaurant, I believe. T-Bar/T-Bone?

I've been here many times and the food is just fine. But today I had lunch with friends and I won't be back. Someone should teach the staff how to deal with the public. We felt very rushed. If you go, check the menu before you get there so you can order really fast. Eat really fast and pay your check as quickly as possible. Also, you will have to ask several times to have your water refilled. Someone should tell them to be somewhat pleasant - maybe look at you when speaking and maybe a smile would go a long way. Very depressing experience - we will not be returning.

Table location is the key; corner tables enhance the dining experience considerably. Sitting "on the floor" is not ideal. The food was typical of "good" steak houses but no where near that of established NYC steak houses.

It wasn’t very busy at all and the staff was just standing around. For some reason it took forever for them to take our order and they forgot party of our meals! Very surprised since normally we come when they are packed and service is usually great then. Very disappointed!!

Love this place! It is a community place where there are a consistent set of regulars. Service terrific and pleasant. Food excellent and nicely presented. The only problem is that it is a little noisy.

Overall very good - had to wait 20 minutes for our table which was not great especially as my 89 year old mother in law had to stand the whole time
Very good steak - I’ll go back
