We came here for Sunday Brunch and loved it. I read on Trip Advisor about the no-alcohol-before-noon law, so we arrived around 11:00, thinking we would wait for an hour and be there in perfect time for mimosas! They host told us it would be about a 45 minute wait (they don't do reservations for brunch), but we only about... More

What a nice lunch we had. .. The food was delicious, especially the steak. My friend asked it medium rare and it was exactly as she wanted. The location is amazing, overlooking the Lake in the heart of Central park. Great service. We were told that probably we have to wait for 30/40 minutes before to get our table since... More

This is the place to go for Sunday brunch. The views across the lake with the skyscraper backdrop are magnificent. It is very busy on a sunday, so get there early as you can to guarantee getting a table (though you may still have to wait). The food is magnificent as well. I had the french toast with grand marinier... More

Didn't eat in the main restaurant but had coffee in 'the cheap seats'! Everything looked great. Nice atmosphere and great views of Central Park.

We return on a family trip to these nice restaurant. What a disappointment... They take away the superb "Steak Tartar" and also the "Shrimp with pumpkin Risotto" they are crazy?

Lots of people having small wedding dinners here - very atmospheric - a big log fire on a very cold and wet day - so good. Problem was no taxis to get there or pick up although they do have a shuttle bus - driver very friendless & made sure we got straight to a taxi. Food was lovely but... More

we went here on our last day which happened to be the new York marathon day so it took forever to find, I only really wanted to see the outside and the view (sex and the city) but with tired feet we decided to go inside. it was simply beautiful. the view is stunning and made it all worth while....

It's located in Central Park. We went for dinner but wish we went for lunch so we could see the view which is beautiful, but to dark in the evening. Food is very good...

Five stars for the view and location which are gorgeous but three stars for everything else. The service was very disappointing. We waited over seven minutes to be greeted and the service never improved. I would of been understanding if it was busy, but it was late afternoon and it wasn't. The food was good, but not great. Our lunch... More

A fabulous location but you need to book if you want the assurance of a table. A great place for a relaxing drink either inside or out. Hope to go back on my next visit to NYC
