Used Open Table to book a table after a Sunday afternoon Broadway play. Lobster Louie Special price fixe menu on Sunday is a great value at $45 dollars per person for three courses . Apps include a Angry Lobster tails, Lobster dumplings or a Lobster coconut soup. Get the picture? Entrees of whole lobster, surf and turf were prepared to... More

We were here for a birthday, late lunch early dinner. Everything was excellent from the Lobster Louie to Fried Chicken and Prawns. The Dover Sole at $51 was worth every penny! For apps we had the lobster sliders, tasty and the lobster cocktail, delicious. Dessert was comprised of coffee-hazelnut crunch bar, excellent blend of flavors and drunken donuts. I don't... More

Sat upstairs in the townhouse, party of four. We were well looked after and enjoyed fabulous food. The charred, spicy lobster to start was beyond fantastic. The char cooked in coconut milk, delicate and tender. All four of us were blown away. THE place for wonderfully prepared seafood.

Dined here with my cousin during restaurant week. Although we were a few min late, we were seated promptly. There wasn't anyone waiting to be seated. However, we felt a little rushed & the waitress wasn't as informative as we are accustomed to so the service was just ok. We were served a big flaky croissant textured kind of bread,... More

The food is fantastic and the atmosphere is lovely. If you are not taking a client to dinner, then go on the weekends. During the week this is definately a business dinner spot.

In a darling setting - the room was so inviting. The brunch was not the usual NYC experience with crowds and noise. The popovers were delicious and the crab cake with pretzels was yummy. Had the cheesecake pops but the donuts at the next table looked even better!

The place was pretty and the food was good but it's run like a chain restuarant . The wine list was extremely overpriced and not very interesting. They never asked if we would like more bread. I asked for a few extra blue cheese olives with my dirty martini and all they gave me were these small strange colored plain... More

Fantastic prix fix menu. Smoked salmon with pastrami and creme fresh with pretzel chips is an interesting mix of flavors. Fresh fish with options for meat make the menu easy to navigate no matter what you're in the mood for, save room for desert.
