“Fun. Cheap. Date Spot. Enough Said.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This place is an AMAZING place to take a girl on a date if you are trying to take her home after. Dim lighting, cheap wine, amazing food, great service. It crosses all its T's and dots all of its I's. The ONLY problem with the place is its an hour weight at a minimum every single night. But the upside? They own the bar next door and you can get hammered waiting for your table. CASH ONLY. So bring your wallet!

One of the best gems of NYC. The value coupled with the friendly service and good food make this a must do.

“Pretty Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The space is very small and busy, but it does have a charming over all effect. It's perfect for dinner with friends (not a large party though).
The food is very fresh and you can tell that the ingredients are high quality, I deemed it over all ok to good though and not amazing. It all depends on how much of a food lover you are.
The prices were good for a Soho restaurant so that was a nice surprise.

“Fab!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Great food, all fresh. Small restaurant. No reservations and no credit cards. Show up, put your name in, go to bar next door and wait your turn. The restaurant is quite noisy so if you are looking for quiet, intimate....keep going. Looking for fab food and a great deal...this is the place!!!

“Cramped but excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

I was surprised how many people go out to dinner on a Wednesday evening! Even though we were packed into the restaurant, the service was good and the food was excellent. (I would recommend going on the early side -- around 6:30 or 6:45.
