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

I went to his restaurant for a birthday party. The place itself is nice. The food is kind of American style but without being the typical steakhouse. I was recommended to try the tomahawk steak and it was amazing. I loved it. The burger was smelling and looking pretty good. One of the dishes that I tried for the first... More

Excellent food and drink menu- from amazing burgers and meats to house made bitters and concoctions for some amazing cocktails. Great place for after work!

a hostess and wait staff that had had no sense of how to treat people. Some places are just stuck up or maybe we just hit this place on a bad day with a bad combination.

This place was disappointing for me. It's unfortunate because the actual place looked really good. The decor and theme of the restaurant was great. It was very busy and loud but I found my food to be disappointing. I ordered the Nudies (like Gnocchi made from Ricotta) and I added lobster to mine. It was like... Meh. Nothing special. The...

The place is too loud to enjoy the company your with. Food was average. Staff/waiter must have been having a bad day as service was not there.

This place is my favorite place in NY. Chef Brad Famerie is so talented and creates amazing food. The manhattan are to die for too. Favorites are portobello mushroom mousse with whiskey jelly, burrata with shaved truffle, and crispy Brussels sprouts with chili caramel.
