Went to dinner for a birthday and used the groupon for the prix fixed menu. First I would like to say the service was excellent and no one made you feel bad about having a groupon (apparently many patrons were using them). The waiter even remarked "so smart" when I gave him the groupon. The prix fixed menu was excellent with great choices including David Burkes signature dishes I.e pretzel crusted crab cake and lolly pop cheesecake tower. The dinner stared with a cold seafood tower for two. This included two complete lobsters, shrimp and oysters (yum) and worth the price of the groupon by itself. This was followed by a choice of four appetizers including the amazing pretzel crusted crabcake ($5 up charge). This was also quite large , next I had the filet mignon and lobster dumpling and my husband had the tuna planchard($12 up charge ). Both were excellent. The steak was cooked perfectly, though I was not really impressed ny the lobster dumplings. My husband liked the tuna. Other choices included lobster, swordfish, pasta dish etc. I want to mention we ordered the only items on the menu with supplemental charges. For dessert there were three choices one of which was the cheesecake lollipop tree. If you choose this it was for two. We did choose it and it was more than enough for two and it was delicious. Though I must Agee that the bubble gum whipped cream was too sweet to put on the cheesecake and unnecessary. As for drinks we each had a cocktail. I tried one of there special drinks called Bad Pear and it was delicious. My daughter had pre- ordered us a bottle of wine as a surprise for my birthday If I had any complaints it would be that the wines by the bottle were VERY expensive even for NYC restaurant. The dinner was excellent, the restaurant was attractive though tables were very close together (sit in second floor dining room) service was attentive. The wine prices were the only reason for a four star vs. five star rating. Also I would like to thank the staff for recognizing my birthday without embarrassing me by singing.
