Went there tonight with family. Horrible experience ! Management is very poor. Food is not bad but the service was slow and the manager is uncaring.

We liked that it was a second story restaurant over=seeing 5th Avenue. Rather pricey, but food was good and the staff even better!

Tuna tartar, avoid. Asian type vinegar sauce covers all tastes. Ingredients not chopped enough, tuna prepared quickly. 1/ chicken marinated in lemon & herbs, interesting. Problem was that 1/2 of it was still rare. And what I like most, the wine we choose was sold out and they proposed a similar one 2X more expensive.

Being on the 2nd floor, If you get a table overlooking 5th Avenue, you get a great view with your meal. Although it has a relaxed atmosphere, there are some stuffy sixties reminders e.g. Caesar salad prepared table side- fun experience, a bit pricy, but engaging. The young man was so shy, but did a superb job. Since we like... More

We went to this restaurant on a recommendation, and were happy we did. We did eat early, and had staff taking care of us immediately. The large cocktail was good, and the shrimp capelli bistro was great. We got plenty of bread loaves before and with the meal. We now recommend it as well.

We had dinner for eight at this restaurant. The menu has a lot of variety, and the service was great. We had fish and seafood dishes. We also ordered salads that were prepared right at our table that were out of this world.
