Really enjoyed this place. Steak was amazing, drinks were great. Not a fan of the ricotta snow pea appetizer. This is not a meal you can rush if you want to enjoy it. So if you have a show to go to after, might want to save this for another time.

Beautiful restaurant with great ambiance. The food was delicious!! The cod was melt in your mouth, the brussel sprout salad delicious and the gnocchi Mac and cheese to die for! Loved the beef carpaccio and veal ribs too! We are only here 3 more days and wondering if we should skip one of the other restaurants on our list and... More

Upon walking in I was expecting this place to be exquisite. Ambiance was beautiful. But I've learned not to judge a book by its cover. Not saying the food was bad by any means... it was just good. Bill was an easy $300+ so I would have been more willing to spend it if I were more blown away. Not... More

I am a big fan of chef Alex Guarnicelli and Since I saw gnocchi Mac and cheese I have been anticipating going to this restaurant. It was so rich and creamy. We also got the barrata appetizer. It was a very large portion and was so creamy. It was like eating ice cream. We had the raspberry beignets for desert,... More

Had dinner here with some friends last month. Amazing Burrata appetizer! Had their specialty martini which was really good but the glass was only about 3/4 filled. Hate when restaurants do that. My friends shared the Tomahawk steak which they liked. Good desserts but the Rasberry Beignets were really just raspberry donuts. Overall cool atmosphere; we would go back.

We stopped in for a drink to see the trendy restaurant on 45th. It was next to our hotel, so it was convenient. The restaurant is on the lower level, so you have about 20 steps down, but there is an elevator. The design is nice, and there is a garden in the back. The famous chef is hoping to... More

The food here was truly wonderful! Salads were crispy and tasty. Two individuals in our party had a vegetarian entree--the cauliflower steak which was delicious. I had a wonderful faro risotto with parsley pesto that I'm still dreaming about. The raspberry beignets with vanilla bean sauce were to die for! Unfortunately, the service did not match the wonderful food. Our... More

Wonderful Gossip Girl inspired birthday dinner here with my daughter, six of her besties and some moms. Beautiful decor and attentive, friendly wait staff make the experience feel very special. Great place for an occasion. Our girls(and moms) loved the Gnochi Mac n Cheese!!!!! Would suggest more such kid and teen friendly items on the dinner menu as lunch menu... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
