We came here for Saturday brunch. It was ok, staff pleasant, just an ok experience. Nothing wrong, just nothing to make me want to go back.

The food was decent, the atmosphere okay, the service was good, but it all left me uninspired to really ever go back. We came across this place because the one we really wanted to go to down the street was closed. Not wanting to search for a place, we just saw this place and went in. It looked good enough... More

If not for the blinking, lighted sign in the distance (Times Square), I could almost believe i'm in Paris. Food was good (French mac 'n' cheese) but the atmosphere was GREAT. A beautiful place, very relaxing, nice waiters, looked just like a Paris brasserie.

Seafood risotto, the rice was semi-dissolved rather than cooked and was completely tasteless. Mussels, a good size but served cold with boiling broth poured over them to heat them up. Fries, soggy and old. Pork tenderloin - texture was just "wrong" and... More

Sausages eggs and fried potatoes for $10 plus tax. Just down the road from where we are staying. The waiter recognized me on my second visit which amazed me. Quiet clean nice restrooms real linen real cutlery. Friendly helpful and very pleasant. Thank you it was a lovely tranquil interlude in a busy day.

Dined here on a freezing cold night in NYC. Called in on spec. had not noticed this place before. We had Duckleg Confit and Lamb Shank both delicious as was the sauvignon blanc! Seemed to have some local people at the bar area but many visitors and locals dining. We had a lovely Greek waiter who was very attentive and... More
