Best local eat on Manhattan

We go here every time we come too Manhattan we love the homely feel and the most amazing service on the whole island, the place hasn't changed since it was opened and has remained family owned and run the whole time, we would recommend his place too everyone and cannot wait too return....LOVE IT

Went here for quick dinner with friends while visiting NYC. It was just ok but it was an old school atmosphere. Service was mediocre and the food above average. Not the best New York has to offer but still ok.

This place is a great place to have lunch or dinner. I prefer to usually sit at the bar and order a steak which comes with a small salad and side. The price is good at $30 and they have good specials as well. This is just a down to earth place on the upper east side with a lot... More

This place just felt good. The atmosphere was so cozy, and the food was just excellent. If you're a good eavesdropper, you can hear the most interesting statements from the older, obviously-all-regulars clientele. The service was excellent. And, as I stated, it was the only restaurant we went to more than once on our trip. All 3 of us got... More

New York City used to have this kind of place all over, but no more. It's a great adult place to go for a good steak, sandwich or stiff drink. General atmosphere is a throw back to a time gone by that makes you feel comfortable. The servers are great down to earth people no flash just good service. Most... More

Very friendly and the portions were just right for my appetite. Family owned is what makes this place so good. They know almost everyone who comes in.

Nothing special. A neighborhood place but not as good as I can cook at home. They just don't make a huge effort especially on the sides. Doesn't take too much thought, creativity or expense to make something a little more special than boiled carrots.

We stayed at Affinia Gardens so this place was really close, however my suggestion is walk past and find somewhere else to eat. We are pretty accommodating when it comes to service (we're Australians and servicein Aus is always a bit slack) but this was ridiculous. Food really ordinary and very slow and server so bad when she gave us... More

Really wanted a steak and this was close to our hotel. It was pretty good food, but service was slow. We spent $100 on food alone (no liquor). You could tell they cater to the neighborhood regulars which was fine, but I wouldn't go back if I visited NYC again.

NIce place to eat. Food is average, but good. Portions are good. Not overly crowded like most of the italian places, so good to get away from the crowds. More of a local establishment. Not touristy. Booths are alittle small, next time sit at a table or bar.
