“Good but boring”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

High quality food and not even overpriced but all in all this is just another generic American up-market sandwich shop, even if the burger is topped with foie gras and the ceiling is VERY high.

The also include an automatic 20% service charge which is not really a reflection of the quality of the service.

“Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

My husband and I stopped here to eat dinner - I found the menu to be overpriced, over-rated and lacking in imagination for the amount of money we paid to eat here! The atmosphere was very business orientated and not in the least romantic - I could not wait to leave - would never eat here again! The service was excellent!!
