Great experience

We were there invited by friends therefore don't ask about the bill. Great loabster and sushi. Everything was nice, service included. If you come to NYC you got to go.

We loved this place. It had both outstanding food and terrific service. Blackened swordfish and salmon special were great. Highly recommend.

Lovely restaurant, really nice room and great service. I had a tuna ceviche which was delicious and a shrimp kale ceaser which was very nice also. Others in my group had great looking sushi and shrimp cocktail. Good for a nice lunch with friends or a business lunch.

Right next to Union Square is this lovely old fashioned place that is perfect for having a drink or a bite to eat before an off-Broadway play. Ask for the French Martini - delish! Martini and Import Beer -- $22. Loved it.

We ate here with a friend late in the evening. The food was terrific. The music was a bit loud when we entered but they turned it down when we asked. This is the third time for us and each time has been consistently good.

We had a long day of many steps around NYC. My husband and I were in the mood for seafood and I selected Blue Water Grill. Easily made a reservation on open table, and had no problem arriving almost on time using the subways. Dani was our server and provided a most excellent service. The sashimi salmon, hamachi, and tuna... More

With a beautiful afternoon we sat to enjoy in the terrace and order wine and sushi. My husband, who is not a sushi fan, said it was the best he had had in a very long time

This is an ideal spot to start your Sunday in NYC. Located just off Union Square, they offer a brunch that is well priced, includes a complimentary alcoholic beverage and coffee. Service in impeccable and if you catch a real nice day in NYC, the restaurant will open up and transform the setting into an almost open air eatery.

Elegant atmosphere, fantastic service, and delicious food. Everything a restaurant experience should be. We found this place after leaving Florian Cafe due to poor service. I would definitely go back to try other dishes on the varied menu. Great night overall!

I had a brunch here. We tried the crab cake and Smoked Salmon Benedict, both of them were really good. The place is nice and vibrant! I recommend it!

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighborhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of the city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets - much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighborhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being home to a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
