The waiters are polite, knowledgeable, good fun and efficient. The place was busy but the service was quick.

Intimate restaurant with great service and good food. Had reservations at another restaurant but waked by it and it looked inviting. Decided to eat there and was not disappointed.

“Lovely place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

We went late on a Saturday night and had a lovely meal, with excellent, unpretentious service. What I particularly liked was watching an obviously exhausted tourist couple come in late into our meal (to probably around 10.30 or so), ask nervously whether the restaurant was still open (having obviously been turned down by several on the 5th Ave strip) and the maitre d' seating them immediately with no fuss, to their delight. That is the kind of service that impresses and keeps people coming back for more. The food was very good; I had the fantastic duo of fish (sea bass and snapper I think). It was wonderful, but too rich ultimately. I couldn't finish it or wade into dessert. Overall an excellent option.

“Tops!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Great food, wonderful atmosphere and impeccable service! The SEABASS was "to die for" and my friends were equally satisfied with their entrée choices.

“Lambchop 5 Star +”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Grant,our Barkeeper told us, oh Chef Jesse has something new on the menu..
Oilve oil and Mint marinated Lambchops, so not much to say:speechless good! So wonderful that you hope it never ends, the flavour was really out of this world! And the sauce, omg, I tasted the new Baby back ribs, again, tamarind coated and marinated, again, just speechless this is I think my 4th review on this Restaurant, and if they never stop cooking so good, number 5 will follow.
In this Restaurant you really taste always something new, but always wonderfull, with the right spices, and still the ribs tasting after ribs, and the lamb taste absolutely top of the line , very fine after lamb.thank you Jesse, kitchencrew, Grant and Billy for another wonderful evening
