One of my favorite places

ONe of my favorite places with excellent food, good service and a lively atmosphere. The only thing is that it is too popular and you have to wait for reservations or try calling in for one.Not sure if they take them now. Great desserts and appetizers.

Now, here is a place that does not disappoint. Our local friends suggested it for Sunday brunch. It is an elegant European-styled restaurant with white tablecloths and a welcoming ambiance. The food was excellent. I had a BLT with wonderful bacon, pancetta and aoli. The fries were great. The outstanding selection seemed to be a salmon tartare that was beautifully... More

As a New Yorker, I love old New York things, and this is it. The food is extraordinary! It's super comfortable. I wouldn't miss it. It's a very local place. Love it.

Had a lovely dinner here. Superlative, friendly service. The lobster roll was fantastic, two brioche buns with a beautiful lobster salad with huge chunks of lobster, great frites. Companions had the sea bass and pronounced it great as well. Would highly recommend this restaurant and will be back on future visits to NYC.

As a local, I've come here several time - generally with larger groups 6 or more, as it's a fun place to celebrate any occasion. Food is very good, and service fine, though gets crowded and a bit noisy. But it's crowded and noisy for a reason - everyone is having fun.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
