This restaurant has superb food. We had the Lamb Ragoti and the Brick-Pressed Chicken. Both were extremely flavorful. Our server was excellent and very attentive. If you are looking for less noisy and more intimate meal, ask to be seated in the back room. It is away from commotion of the main dining room.

A nice place where you can actually have a conversation. Service was excellent. Sommelier was helpful in the choice of wine. I had the duck breast because the reviews on Yelp said it was highly recommended. For the price, I had better and tastier duck breast. Nonetheless, it was a good place. Maybe I should have had the grilled octopus... More

We came here for lunch after my daughter's small intimate wedding at Christchurch, just over the road on Park Avenue. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and attentive, and the food was absolutely delicious. We had a room at the back of the restaurant which was just the right size for 12 of us. It was an informal lunch,... More

The ambiance is that of a local spot; you would probably walk by and not ever stop if you didn't know about this place, but I love the busy vibe and great food. The service was wonderful, too.

Its a bit of a walk for the theater crowd...but a nice way to build up an appetite for their amazing food. We made pre-theater reservations and had no issue making our 8pm show.

We went here pre-theatre when we couldn't get a reservation at a theatre-district restaurant. So glad this happened! This was a really delicious, creative, superb dinner. The staff was professional. A quite, quaint, smallish place that, if in the neighborhood, is well worth a visit.

We went for dinner. We had excellent service. The food was excellent. Grilled octopus and brick chicken were stand outs. Dessert was incredible. Lovely setting, but it gets loud. Portions were pretty good, but drinks were pricey. (Not unusual for midtown)

Dined here our first night in Manhattan; chose it based on proximity, reviews, and website menus. Loved it! Chicken Under-A-Brick was the best my chicken husband EVER ate (cripy-crunchy outside and deliciously moist insid with great flavor), the chard appetizer with plums and crispy sweet potatoes (really!) was scrumptious. Good service and charming atmosphere. Recommend it for sure!

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
