Really nice restaurant

We went for the set $35 dinner menu, which is good value. Interestingly we had the same waiter who served us when we visited last year, and he was really good and helpful. Unfortunately this restaurant is due to close in January, which is a shame. The decor is quite modern, but the food is good... read more

Overrated food, most average omelette, very very expensive crab cakes, barn like room. Unfortunately for the very nice staff, closing, but I can see why.

My go to restaurant for business lunch - food is always delicious! Service is very quick as they cater to business people - the main dining room can get loud. Ask to sit in the back room for a quieter atmosphere. The salmon is delicious highly recommend.

I've been here a few times and it has been an overall good experience, however, I thi,k that in some cases the quality and portion size is disproportionate to the price. Sometimes they seem a little rushed to get us out, but when it is calmer, it is easier to stay put. Decent meal overall, but the prices...meh.

My favorite Restaurant in New York! May be because of the history of the building, or Diller and Scofidio great design! But I love this place... One of Sex and the city`s best chapter was filmed here! Good wines and drinks!

Went for weekday lunch, tried a late reservation to avoid the crowd. No luck. Not sure why this place is so noisy, but you can hardly hear your companion across the table. Menu has several items of interest and good variety. The chicken in the Paillard was dry, which is odd in Manhattan. Service is indifferent, but not neglectful.. There... More

We were there for brunch and the service was quite good, though sadly not the food. Most of the food was cold and lacked flavor....too bad, this restaurant was one of the City's great ones, and always predictable for good food!

We eat here often because of the design and atmosphere. My most recent visit was solo, and the burger at the bar was great (as always). Staff always welcoming.

Came here on a recommendation of a high level exec in NY and wanted to like it, but....The service was good and the food was average. Was expecting more, but glad the prices weren't too high. The steak was very good though.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
