I went there over Sylvia’s because of all the reviews I had read on this place. The venue is actually quite nice but the food is disappointing: I was expecting sophisticated comfort food, but despite the effort my meal was filling but not very tasty....More

Mediocre food and over priced. Ordered the salmon, very small portion with no sides...$31. Mac and greens on the menu, but only served "Mac", when asked about the "greens", the dish was taken back to the kitchen and it appeared as if a few pieces...More

Good food and great atmosphere, it was pouring down outside that day, but inside it was really a good vibe. We had a ragout and a vegetarian grill dish, expertly done. I'd come back again for sure.

We were staying very close to this restaurant and thought we'd give it a try...I wish we hadn't. The chicken i had was tough and the sauce was overly spicy and sour ! Over priced and very mediocre.More

Delicious food in energetic and pleasant surroundings. Many restaurants extoll the virtues and ingredients of their food in elaborate detail so your expectations are impossibly high. Here, relatively simple descriptions are given, but when the food arrives you are blown away both by presentation and...More

Many others have mentioned the sound volume. I went to RR believing the volume issue was exaggerated... but it wasn't. Too loud to speak around the table (especially during the live music), we skipped desert and coffee and left as soon as we finished eating....More

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new
businesses and developments go up next to local
institutions. The heart of the neighbourhood is
bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
