We went back for Restaurant Week since we enjoyed last year.

Last year, there were several entree options (branzino, chicken, steak, etc). This year, there were 2: short ribs or fish and chips. The short ribs portion was tiny - about 3 bites - and the fish was over-battered / fries were too salty.

The main reason for the low rating was the service. The only time we saw the waiter was when he kept refilling our water. Little did we know he was refilling it with pricey Evian. We were shocked when we had $40 tacked onto our tab for water. We had to flag down our waiter twice for the check and ended up walking it to the cashier ourselves - since it had been almost 2 hours!

Disappointed with the Restaurant Week menu and service.

Gordon Ramsey needs to Kitchen Nightmares his own place. The food here was terribly salty and one dimensional. I had the cauliflower soup and it was pretty gross (super salty soup with random golden raisins in it and a oil slick on top from the Parmesan - which was not needed because it just added more salt on top of salt). I also had the short rib which came with a smear of this cement-gray puree that was seriously one of the least appetizing things I've ever seen! If Gordon would have seen it he would have screamed 'GET OUT YOU DONKEY!' at the chef who prepared that. The dessert was OK, if a little disjointed (chocolate plus mango plus salt plus cookies plus raspberries etc). All in all I would not go back. Service was abysmally show.

Overall a great experience, professional friendly service, quiet, yet vibrant ambience, nice decor, loved the MET Opera Replica chandelier above the bar. The food was delicious, very good quality, not too rich and also reasonable prices for such an upmarket restaurant. I had the chicken breast and it was just perfect. The appetizers, snack plates and soups and side dishes were also interesting and I would love to go back to try them all. The chocolate dessert was a good sizzle, not too big after a filling meal.

Went during the Restaurant Week and disappointed with very limited choice, like only 5 items for a 3-course meal, one of which is the common "fish & chips" and presented not even in a nice way, rather all stacked up like a diner instead of a fine restaurant! The restaurant hardly challenged itself. And service is so bad, very slow and given that the restaurant was not even half-full for a busy lunch time, waiters have to be coached for service

Had the crab cake as an appetizer. The texture was perfect--light and fluffy. The flavor was excellent . Service was great, attentive but not obtrusive. It was a little pricey, but the food was up to standards.

Service here is excellent and very attentive. Food is great. Salmon is a hit. Lunch prix fixe worth every penny and more. From soup to nuts this restaurant is a personal favorite. The place runs like a well-oiled machine and you know you're going to have a good experience.

Went here for restaurant week and didn't regret it. The beef short ribs were wonderful. The service was equally perfect. I would go here again any day!

Restaurant week. Ambiance is nice, best bathroom I may have seen in NYC. Our server was hurried (wasn't that busy) and cold. Apptz were great (Salad or the soup were excellent), main dish both were blah and dry. Dessert rescued this from being a dud; was exceptional. Gordon, the main star is main menu, can't be that blah!
