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.

I live in the neighborhood and recently went to Fishtail. The food was excellent. I had the lobster dumpling and my wife had the crab cake to start. The dumpling was flavorful and the beggar's purse presentation was fun. The crab cake came in a unique shape and had a very good texture (not as crunchy as other reviews cited).... More

I had previously been to the David Burke Townhouse and loved it, though it was very expensive. I gave it a terrific review and so I wanted to try one of David Burke 's other restaurants. Absolutely request to be seated on the second floor because the first floor has the bar and seating for dinner but it is crazy... More

I had a pasta, tortelinni, with angry lobster......mostly angry (very spicy) and little lobster and a lot of pasta and some little sausage pieces mixed in... More

We had reservation on Tuesday night for 5:30. By 6:30 every table was taken. The service was very good. We had a simple green salad, grill arctic char and simply grilled Scottish salmon. All were very delicious. The atmosphere is very nice. However, like most of the things in NYC it is expensive. My glass of wine $18. Anyways, the... More
