We had dinner on Friday, November 8, 2013. When I called for a 8:15 reservation I was
asked if it could be 8:00 PM. I said we could not arrive then because we were exhibiting at the
Armory on Park Avenue and the show didn't end until 8:00 PM. The woman then said don't
be later than 9:00 PM. I took this to mean that they were probably very busy. When we arrived
at 8:15 there was only one other table occupied. This is unreal for a restaurant located less than two blocks from Bloomingdales which has been in business for at least forty years. The overall
experience revealed why. The food was OK, certainly not worth the 21 points given by Zagats.
The prices are OK and the wine is not too expensive. The décor is dated and appears to be the
same as when we ate there forty years ago. When we finished our meal around 10:00 PM, it was obvious that everyone (employees) in the restaurant was ready to leave. The woman running the restaurant was very pleasant but obviously this establishment needs an intervention. Spend some money, brighten
it up and perhaps hire a new chef. With this location it should be a gold mine not a last choice.
