Welcoming service

We came for a late night light dinner. There was not many people at that time. The service was very friendly and pleasant. We had pasta with edamame and arugula salad, both very fresh. Overall the prices seem on the more expensive side but the quality and the service/atmosphere are very good.

My niece and I went for Sunday Brunch and had a lovely outdoor table on a gorgeous day. The bread basket was fabulous, I could have had two of those and been done and happy with my meal. However I had the corn beef benedict, which was good, but not great and I wish I had ordered the regular eggs... More

Have been to the restaurant a few time over the past few years and it has always been a cut above average. Comfort food vs. gourmet. Pros: Service is very good, food is imaginative and the food quality is high with fresh ingredients. Cons: Can be crowded, long lines (a good sign, I guess), a bit cramped when full and... More

I met my friend for a quick bite before an event at the Players Club off of Gramercy Park and couldn't have been more pleased. The intimate and private bar was perfect for happy hour-where they have half- off beer and wine, and we had 1 large bottle of water, one diet coke, and two glasses of wine, along with... More

From a recent trip to NYC, after trying several highly-rated brunch spots, I can honestly say that this is one of my utmost-favorite brunch spots. For brunch, it's first come, first served, so show up early as the restaurant is relatively small and fills up quickly. Food is fresh, local, and cooked to order. Service is timely and attentive yet... More

On a sunny day in NYC this is a nice spot for brunch. This is a restaurant that proves that as long as you have a decent location people will queue to get in regardless of the quality of the experience. The waiters got every single element of our order wrong. Green tea instead of black, fries instead of salad.... More

Read about this place online and so glad we did. A tiny little place decked out like an old farmhouse complete with old wallpaper, farm tools & piles of fresh produce - but very subtle, not too 'themed'. The music was also fantastic, you can't beat Neil Young and it suited chilled out the atmosphere perfectly. Eggs Benedict was superb... More

We really liked the location. It has a nice, cosy interior, which we really enjoyed. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had the burger and a salad with avocado. Both was nice, however, we expected the food to be a little bit more special for this price.

We ate here most days on our recent trip. There was a great choice of food, which was all fresh and tasty. The layout is cosy and refreshing from the rest of NY. The staff were great and extremely friendly.
