Great restaurant vibe with an interesting menu. Wine list is arguably too extensive for what is a relatively short menu and very pricey. Tables are well spaced but tabletop design sparse and uninviting. Staff are not particularly attentive and lack training. This is pitched as a fine dining restaurant which the decor, ambiance and menu delivers but the service is below par.
The food far exceeded our expectations and the service was excellent.
My husband and I met old friends that we hadn't seen in a while. The space is very cozy and charming. The service was very attentive and the food was delicious. A special note that the cocktails are amazing! I would go to that bar anytime!!
Very nice spot for a pre-theater brunch. We arrived 20 minutes early and were greeted very warmly and sat immediately. Enjoyed the bloody mary options. Eggs Benedict with the smoked salmon was delicious. Also located next to subway stop.
Simply a great experience, all around. Arrived early, stopped in adjoining Elephant Bar. Wife had an off-menu champagne cocktail; I had the "Start Me Up", quite good; bartenders fun to watch. When time, hostess came, put our drinks on a tray, led us to our table. Tip: get a table in the Parlour if you can- tone, texture, artwork, furnishings, set the perfect atmosphere. The Atrium prob. ok, but just more crowded, noisy, "industrial". Waiter was what one hopes for: knowledgeable, attentive, not intrusive. Helped work with sommelier on our wine selection. I indicated a few bottles in the book that I knew, said I'd like something along those profile lines and price-points, but would love a recommendation for something new to us that would go with our food choices. Brought a wine perfect for the meal, and even on the lower end of our price range. Began w carrot tartare - thinly shredded in a tart-sweet pickling sauce, with sunflower seeds throughout - a nice splash of flavor and toothsomeness. App was the cobia - lightly-seared filet slices, with that firmer outer ring and the middle creamy and rare, w slices of pear and daikon radish, in a light white cream sauce- very refeshing. Then did the famous roasted chicken for two. This was SO good. The smoky, earthy, fatty flavors of the truffle and foie gras seemed infused into the breast meat, and burst out with each mouthful. The little pot of thigh meat cooked with onions n cream was a gem-each bite full of flavor and texture. And the boned wing atop greens was a saltier, crunchier 3rd "side". Then "Milk and Honey"... quenelles of ice cream striped w honey atop crumbled brittle, shortbread, & chunks of dehydratedmilk foam resembling honeycombs- clever, satisfying. A destination spot, esp. if you do the chicken. This was our 1st time here, so can't compare to years gone by...our experience was an authentic "signature dish" at an iconic restaurant with a server who seemed to really care that we had a wonderful night.
Was just perfect as always!
A very pleasant evening
Lovely on all levels and we are frequent New York diners. The chicken was the best I've had ever anywhere.
One of the best dining experiences my wife and I have had the pleasure of enjoying. It’s expensive, but the experience is worth every penny.
Great as always
