The Modern Ratings and Reviews
What an amazing experience. Kevin Browne is just the host you want every time . He did such an amazing job . I was a little upset at first but he totally made up for everything and a lot more. Amazing food, amazing service, amazing experience. Will definitely go back again... a true Michelin star restaurant.. By far my favorite...
Birthday . Sophisticated but not overly complex dishes . Delicious, different, varied. Liked some more than others and some were just great. There was not too many courses. It was the aright amount of dishes —no one got too stuffed.
Sitting next to the Winfield into the winter hdtden
The food is delicious and the presentation is artistically appealing. Our service was fantastic the wait staff is very attentive. All in all it was a lovely and memorable experience. It was our 25th wedding anniversary and we were presented with a very thoughtful and special dessert! My husband is not a wine drinker and he was thrilled to find his very favorite IPA on the beer menu. Jaialai!
Great restaurant. We went for the 8 course chefs tasting menu and every dish was vastly different, creative, yummy and presented really well. Excellent food. The service was on point with all the right touches of a fine dining experience. The only issue we had was the sommelier service lacked slightly. The sommelier came to the table at the beginning of the meal and did not return until the meal had started. When a lady came to drop a dish it turned out she was another sommelier and helped us with wine selection although asked us about budget when we asked for her to pick something that would pair well. Then the male sommelier came back and gave us selections and we finally started drinking wine by the third course. The wine was excellent but would have been nice to have had it a little quicker into service. That was not enough to deter us and we would definitely return and recommend this restaurant. Throughly enjoyed our meal and evening.
Compared to the price level and the two Michelin stars we were not impressed by the food.
Two or three of the eight course meal were very good, but we expected more.
The waiters were friendly and professional, but made a couple of mistakes: They mixed sparkling and still water in our glasses and they misspelled my girlfriends name in the birthday cake.
Furthermore it took to much time to get the menu and before they took our order. Therefore we had to rush through the eight courses.
Overall it was good food and a fine experience, but I've had better for under half the price.
Exquisite food presentation and taste, service, ambiance. Classy and superb. A notch above all the established top-tier NYC restaurants. Peek into the kitchen -- astounding! Put this at the top of one's list for "special occasion" dining. We'll be back. Thank you.
Great food and friendly service but at a 2 it is not ok to completely miss the wine service to the main course ... I had to point out that the wineglasses and wine was missing and when I did so they moved to get it served. They did however not remove the plates until I pointed out that they needed to that while the wine was served so we could enjoy warm food with the wine. The apologized of course but did nothing else to remedy the error. Unworthy a 2. Too bad but again food was great.
Dined for New Year’s Eve after travelling from the otherwise of the world to spends New Uears in NYC. Was simply sensational and nothing to fault. Food Devine, service sharp and understated and loved every moment. Bravo to the team. You were awesome
And made myself and partner very happy.
Stellar, professional service but sometimes cold and haughty (especially the sommelier). Small menu with either four or eight courses to choose from. Not very interesting from a pescatarian’s perspective. Stuffy atmosphere intended to cater to old rich people. Disorganized at reception desk.
We had the rare opportunity to sit at the 4 person Chef's table to celebrate my wife's recent birthday. This was a truly unforgettable evening from beginning to end. We savored an 8-course tasting menu that was superb. Each course was prepared with great care and for many of them we were able to meet the people involved in their preparation.
One of the surprising aspects of the meal was the almost hushed atmosphere in the huge kitchen despite the fact that dozens of people were at work. There was very little shouting, and no people scurrying back and forth. The decorum was striking and contributed to a relaxed and totally enjoyable culinary experience. This undoubtedly ranks as one of the top restaurants in the City given the rare combination of MOMA's ambience and the superlative cuisine.
Plan to spend the entire evening here for a special occasion dinner. The combination of ambience, food and wine, and seamlessly choreographed service made this an evening to remember. We selected the 4 course prix fixe menu in the main dining room and were impressed with each course in flavor, presentation, and creativity. The sommelier helped us pick an outstanding Barolo which paired beautifully with the meal. This is one of the rare pinnacles of dining experience, perfect in every way.
