This restaurant was recommended to us by friends. It's small and cozy: the menu is comprised of three choices in each category (appetizer, main course, and dessert) along with some initial bites and a large wine list. Our waiter (Tate) knew the menu well describing...More

We had dinner here before a Broadway show. Our server was extremely knowledgeable regarding the menu and made a wine suggestion that perfectly complimented our meal. King is a sweet, cozy space with an open kitchen. The menu changes daily which keeps it interesting. I...More

The food is perfection- simple, clean, flavorful. The service is lovely- friendly, but not overtly so it is annoying. The decor is charming. The only fault is it is sometimes a tad bit noisy, but compared to other NYC places, it isn't bad on the...More

This is a quite small, clean and tidy, white washed restaurant. White table linens, decent cuttlery and china. Comfortable for a NYC joint. There is an efficient wine list from which you can drink very well, but not spectacularly. The food, however, is spectacular, and...More
