Had a very pleasant meal here. They kept the Restaurant Week prix fixe menu, which is a bargain at $38. for three courses. The oysters were fresh and delicious and the duck entree was perfect. The service was on the slow side, but we weren't in a hurry, Large pleasant dining room with some outside seating.

This is a reliable place for a slightly over priced meal in a very nice setting. It's always difficult to return to a place a decade and one owner later, and still expect to be blown away I guess. I think this is a perfectly good meal.

Was in a rush for lunch, but it was 2pm. Had the tuna tartar appitizer, adorably wrapped in a thin slice of cucumber with decorative garnish, served with a little friese salad and fabulous made-there potato chips. Wonderful service.

A great steak was started with an order of escargot and accompanied by creamed spinach but my Siberian server, Irina, made it very special.

We were originally going to Union Square Cafe and they were crowded. Fortunate for us!! Looking down the street we saw a sign for Sunday brunch all you can drink mimosas so we walked down and found a gem! By all means check this place out!!!!

Lousy service. We are 20 guest and about three group tables. Our waiter is very efficient and good but the man server was rude and nasty. My relative who was first and order the food ahead of us was serve last and about 25 minutes late. I called the male server to check and he won't butter to help since... More

Nice restaurant, but we asked for medium and the steak was more than rare and cold in the middle. Wouldn't go back.
