“Try the trout!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

We went there before a movie-the location was good not far from Times Square but it is away from the corner a little so you have to look for it. Got a reservation the same day and we were waited on promptly. I was craving fish. They had swordfish on the menu-swordfish are endangered so I NEVER eat it- I hope they replace it with another option. Trout was filleted- my boyfriend was worried he's have to deal with the bones-very good presentation also. I got an appetizer- lobster bisque- which contained lobster (Yay!) but they gave us one pice of bread not very big for the 2 of us I guess- maybe because my boyfriend didn't get an appetizer he got the bread but I didn't since I had the soup? The server was good at explaining the dishes. A little noisy in there.. Boyfriend got a very tasty pinot noir for a house wine...

“Great service,food,and price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

I had a group of 20 people here and went perfect! Group Reservations with Christine Toro was prompt and very professional. On the event day all was in order and the manager did his best to every small detail. Thank you all for a wonderful evening. We will come back soon.

“Awesome Spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We stopped in for dinner after a comedy show @ Carolines. Even though it was nearing closing time they still accommodated us and didn't rush us at all. We had the Steamed Mussels to start with which were awesome, they were served in a sauce which was good and spicy. We also had the Blackened Chicken Linguini which had an awesome Cajun cream sauce. Had a few pints of Guinness and couple of glasses of wine and some good conversation with the bartender all made for a great experience. Note: They are a part of the Landry's chain so if you're not a member of their rewards program, make sure to sign up.

“Excellent seafood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Went for dinner on our first night in NY and came back for dinner 2 nights later, it is that good! Very pricey, elegant decor (without being snobby). Recommend the crab and mango tower and the seared scallops. Absolutely delicious! Good service also.
