We happened on this place and we honestly should have read the reviews first. It was a nightmare. The service was horrible. The staff did not really care about you or the time you spent there or if you were hungry and how long you'd...More

Great food and a good way to see Harlem. I always get the beef bourgeon. I like the interesting crowd.

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.

Was there in November 2016, with friends for some light fare...the food was excellent and the service was at parr. Myself and friends were extremely pleased.

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.

bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
