Great local restaurant with mouth watering steaks. Very close to the theaters and seems to be a hot spot for theater stars , celebrities and locals. Great service and quaint atmosphere. It is loaded with history and worth seeking out for a great meal.

In a few words , it's just not that great. Very large portions of somewhat burned meet. Beer was stale. Just a waste of money. Good but far from great.

Went for $25 Prefix. Had a generous salad with great dressing, filet (cooked perfect medium) with broccoli, breakfast style potatoes (yum), and desert. Also enjoyed a $10 glass of wine which filled the glass! Where else in NYC can you go for a $35 meal...More

This restaurant is very "cozy" and has a definite flavor of a landmark neighborhood restaurant. It appeared that many customers and the owner had known each other for years. The food was quite good, and we had wood-fire grilled Filet Mignon. Sides are a la...More

This is not a fancy place and tables are small and close. If you are looking for glitz and glam, this isn't your place. This is old school New York. This place had been here for years, and I have dined here many times. The...More

They don't have a gluten-free menu section, but servers will advise which selections are gluten-free. Very supportive serving staff, anxious to please.
