“Great tasting menu, took longer than expected on busy Saturday night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

The setting is beautiful and impressive on the corner of W10 and 15 st the staff is very friendly, in order to make a reservation we had to guarantee it with a credit card and were warned of penalties of 50 pp. in case of cancellations. We ordered the tasting menu which consists of 7 dishes including 2 desserts. Food was well prepared and great tasting, caviar, scallops, turbot, squab, wagyu and 2 great desserts, the only problem is that it took too long in some cases the wait was of over 20 minutes between dishes, (our reservation was at 9 and we left at midnight) by the time the main dishes started to arrive we weren't hungry anymore, staff was very friendly and nice but could be more attentive as to clearing glasses and making sure the table was impeccable and perhaps explaining why it was taking longer than expected. The bill was about 700 for a family of four with no wine and a couple of cocktails. I'm sure it doesn't happen often, but this details shouldn't get overlooked by the management.

“Highly Touted but they lived up to it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

Food was interesting and outstanding. Service overall was very good although the main waitress (took our order) was way too casual and seemed out of place. Debated the prix fix but thought it might be too much food. Was very happy going a la carte. Ate with my wife and daughter and between us we had 7 courses and shared one dessert. Again, food was outstanding across the board. Absolutely beautiful room and if i had one knock it would be that there was no table cloth but rather place mats and they overlapped due to the size of the tables. That just didn't fit.

“What a great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

The food and staff were unbelievable. The main dining room is huge, which is a rarity in NYC. Allowed my wife and I to have a private, romantic meal. We had the tasting menu along with the wine tasting and it was unbelievable. I would definitely eat here again.
