Went here for my wife's birthday, so we pushed the boat out and did the full tasting menu with wine pairings. Everything was delicious and super high quality. We had previously eaten at Gordon Ramsey's place at the London in New York, and this quality was a match for Ramsey. Service was discrete and attentive and we discovered a couple... More

I was impressed by the wines, which were all excellent. Look at the list, it is very impressive. The food was excellent also, and their One star Michelin is well deserved.

We have been there for dinner and also late for drinks. The bar did not have the liquor to make a Brandy Manhattan, how can a you call a bar a full service bar. No Brandy & no sweet vermouth. Over priced.

Great food great service and extensive wine list always had a great experience. The food is innovative. presentation is excellent. They are ready to accommodate food preferences even at the last moment. The chef always has a great menu planned. Wine selections are made easy by the sommelier or even the waiters as they help you choose.
