Pricey, but worth it. Four of us had dinner before theater. I started with 6 raw oysters that were good but not the best I have ever had. Then I had sea bass with jerusalem artichokes and crab - very good. Others had scallops and...More

I found this restaurant while searching for outstanding dining in close proximity to my hotel and a conference with equally easy access for someone joining me from the local area. The unassuming exterior hides the remarkable dining experience at this restaurant. The food that we...More

Met a friend for catching up... We enjoyed the food, but some of the items were not well described so they came as a surprise. Good wine list. Tea selection is limited and unknown by wait staff. Service is deferential.

Everything about Corduroy is perfect: the food is superb, the service better than any place I know, and the quiet and beautiful ambiance wonderful. It may not appeal to young people looking for a raucous dining experience. But for anyone looking for first-rate everything ---...More

We all really enjoyed our meal. The food was all really good which you would expect for the price but there were a few standout dishes - the lobster carpaccio and the scallops special were superb. The service was excellent and the ambience was nice....More

Hi, I had my 12 year old daughter, absolutely no issue. If the children are younger, the place is not deathly quiet so I think as long as the kids are well behaved, it will be fun. And I am a big believer in exposing... More
