Great food and a wonderful view of Central Park. The atmosphere in the restaurant is a little casual and many of the guests were in sneakers and tshirts which didn't seem to fit the vibe of the restaurant. Had a great meal though.

I had never been here and came on a weekday afternoon for lunch. The menu was interesting and the view, stellar. I ordered a medium salmon burger that was delicious. A great spot for a fun afternoon. The wine list is also great.
