Both our dishes were excellent. The service was friendly, timely and delightfully accented. And the dessert...phenom! Although the atmosphere was a tad loud, I would highly recommend this spot if you want to be impressed by wonderful food. Classic new Harlem.

One of the best restaurants in Harlem. Excellent food and service in a casual, unpretentious setting. I dined with three others and we were all impressed.

I ordered a steak sandwich which was very tasty and the French fries are cooked perfectly well. The bread of the sandwich was fresh and crusty, I liked it very much (and I am French, so I *know* what good bread is!).
