We went here to celebrate our last night in NYC. We werent disappointed.The cocktails were very good, the shared plate of breads and pate, was really nice, and our mains of gnudi and chicken were excellent, and to finish up the Peach Melba was delicious. All up a great way to finish our holiday.

Went here for an office dinner and was pleasantly surprised. The staff was attentive and service was great. Tried the ricotta knudi which was amazing, as well as the steak. The japanese highball was ok. Also tried their house bourbon and pinot noir which was delish!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. It has a very cool atmosphere and the service is great. The ricotta gnudi is the best dish on the menu, in my opinion - definitely worth a try. The drinks are amazing as well.

I went here for dinner with friends on a Friday night. While initially disappointed that we were being seated in the basement, my mind immediately changed when I saw how cool the basement was! (Also, their bathrooms are so awesome and smelled amazing..no joke) We had the charcuterie board which was delicious and worth every penny. I ordered the half... More

My mom and I visited Saxon and Parole during a mother/daughter weekend. Atmosphere is excellent, staff is delightful, service is on-point, and the seafood tower is to-die-for! Great choice for a very nice but somewhat casual restaurant!

This is one of my all time favourite restaurants. The chef is a genius and the staff are knowledgeable and fun. It can get a little noisy, but it still gets full marks as the food is so good.

Went there for dinner during the week. Bar was absolutely beautiful & drinks amazing! Love the punch card for the oysters which they have on stock. Burger was really nice & service very friendly. Unfortunately the place is really loud, and if you're not sitting in the back corner of the restaurant you will have problems communicating. Anyway, we had... More

Delicious! The real deal maybe the best burger I ever had. They deserve to be atop the lists of best burger. I have tried many of the others on the list of top burgers and...many must have paid there way on the list.

Dinner mid week with co-worker while on a business trip to NYC. We started with the delicious Mushroom mouse served in a cute pot. I had the grilled swordfish for my entrée. It had great flavor and was not a large dish. Everyone I was with enjoyed their meal. The burger with the fried egg was enjoyed by two of... More
