We went for brunch. My eldest had a $35 steak & eggs that we could have have got for $12 at our local Mexican place (with home fries & rice and beans rather than an oblong block of potato hash). My youngest had a flavourless burger (can anyone in NYC make a decent burger? I guess you don't have to... More

We had a lovely dinner here, with a very good filet of beef, amazing pecorino french fries and good service. My son didn't like his Japanese eggplant, which the server noted, and opted to bring him a burger, which was not on the menu. He was much happier. Portions of fries are so large, share them. A nice wine list,... More

From the start of our meal I knew I was in good hands. The staff would come over to make sure we were doing OK and they went above and beyond to make us happy. OMG the scallops were just amazing and the poached lobster took me to new levels of foodgasm. I can't wait to go back.

Forget only restaurant week; this awesome eatery has a fantastic prix fixe lunch special at only $29 weekdays. The food is always excellent, outstanding service and the prix fixe lunch is a value that can't be beat in NYC.

The staff is friendly and service efficient. Desserts look great and tasty. The burger was too oily.

Our friends offered to treat us to brunch to celebrate my partner's birthday. This was an excellent place to go, easy to find, parking not difficult on a Sunday.

The food was DELICIOUS, the PORTIONS were NOT small but regular size, which is unusual for an establishment that offered 3 courses for $30!! during Restaurant Week! The best was the service. Brandon was friendly, professional but most of all made you feel that... More
