“Brilliant introduction to Harlem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

My husband and I ate here on our first night in the city and it was excellent. Food was reasonably priced and the staff very friendly. Restaurant had a fantastic atmosphere and the music was perfect for a Saturday night. Recommended if you are looking to try other places in the city.

“Amazing food, slow to arrive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

The food was excellent from the eggs benedict to the rice and beans to the french toast. They were also very accommodating for my young daughter to get plain pasta. It's a small place, so I could see a wait building up, so maybe call first. It seemed to take longer for our table to get food than another table that ordered after us (and was a bigger table), but overall the service was very good.

“A Good Neighborhood Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

Well-prepared and reasonably priced food and drink that is good for weeknight or weekend. This is very much a neighborhood place, with Harlem's LGBT community at the center.
