We went to this restaurant with a group. The service was very nice, but the food was mediocre at best. I have given them a 3 star because I am being nice. I would skip this place.

Food was delicious! Very interesting choices. A nice amuse bouche and a little salted caramel as an extra touch! Loved the dessert! A cake with basil...who would have known! Valet parking in Union Square! Thanks for that too!
