As would be expected of a Charlie Palmer restaurant the food is very good and this is an attractive restaurant right on 42nd street. It is ideally located for pre-theater dining, but when we were there the service was chaotic. That is my major criticism.

We had the prix fixe in the dining room and it was very well prepared and delicious. There were nice choices for each course along with the bonus oyster served before the appetizer. The service was very attentive.

Went for a business lunch. It was outstanding! I had the Salmon and the way it was prepared was just amazing. I didn't know that Salmon could taste this good. The service fantastic! The atmosphere terrific! Our guest at my table were all raving about their entrees as well. I will be back!

We enjoyed our dinner here. Friendly, efficient service & excellent food. We especially enjoyed the white truffle risotto, tuna tartare & black cod. Hoping to return the next time we are visiting the city.

Not bad, not exceptional food and not cheap. Great service and since I was facing away from the street, wasn't bothered by the flashing neon signs outside. Tables were way too close in the side room so there was no escaping the pretentious, fawning mistresses. Good for regular business events, but certainly not worth a return trip for a special... More

Than hanger steak for my wife, which was very nice, while i had the foie gras appetizer, which was absolutely... More

Nice location and decor. Starters and deserts were ok the main course (roast duck for two) was outstanding. Good wine list. It has a Michelin star apparently. The ambience and general quality means that is unlikely ever to get a second one. Very nice but not outstanding
