42 floors above white plains sits 42- wonderful views and a trendy beautiful interior- the staff is young and somewhat inexperienced for this type of restaurant but very friendly and helpful. The food is fresh and interesting- something for everyone- tapas and main courses as well as a great wine list- If you are looking for a different dining experience,... More

615 pm seems like the only time we can get in. It's always booked. Food is small but really tasty and really nice. Too much light in the place at that time though. $1000 bucks for dinner in the bright light seemed weird.

Clearly this restaurant is not affliated with the Ritz Carlton! I was in the White Plains area to celebrate a close friend's Birthday - We were dressed very well, to walk into a place & see the staff wearing sneakers. The bar area was incredibly small & uncomfortable. The music was blasting so loudly I could not hear the bartender,... More

The service here is great. Drink prices are reasonable and the happy hour is an added plus. They also have a dj on the weekends.

It's the kind of place you would take your prom date in hopes of impressing them. The food was just average, not bad not great though. The service was below par for the price although the place was only half full they rushed to try to turn the table.

So, I've herd a lot of great things about this restaurant, just had to try it on date night. First of all, reservation is a must. The scenery from up top is definitely breathtaking. Atmosphere is very private and comfortable. The decor, very modern. Now for the drinks. Lots of beer option. A variety of milky drinks even with eggs.... More

This restaurant has the best views in White plains but could use a new chef. The food is bland (rubbery shrimp) and the management staff is rude. Try another place

We hadthe lobster cocktail, oysters , the flambed chorizo, Clams casino which were juicy and meaty, the octopus, fried chicken sandwich. And a pork cutlet sandwich which was the only thing that was so so. Our... More

We had a 5:45 dinner reservation. I'd agree with the poster below that this is not a fancy restaurant. Let's face it, we came for the view. That aside, we were more than surprised with the quality and the size of the portions. My wife and I shared 2 tapas, the Clams casino and Macau pepper steak. I also ordered... More
