Great food but on the expensive side. Beautiful restaurant and has a wonderful atmosphere. Other than the price, this experience won't let you down. If you have a few extra dollars to spare, check it out!

We got married in New York and got recommended a meal here from our wedding organiser The restaurant and meal here were out of this world, the steak was the best I've ever tasted and i am fussy. Loved the pool, great staff great evening, well recommended.

We had 8:30 pm reservations on a Thursday night. We arrived around 8:25 and did wait 10-15 minutes before we were seated. We had reserved the pool room and we did get a large table right next to the pool. The atmosphere is lovely and really that is a lot of what you pay for here. I thought service was... More

I am shocked when I see any negative reviews about this restaurant because my experience was so amazing. Let me preface this with the fact I love mid-century architecture and history. That being said, the food and service were REALLY wonderful. The only thing that needed improvement was the reception by the Hostess. She was rather cool... bordering on rude.... More

I've eaten here many times. I usually for lunch, dinner just a few times. I love the restaurant so much, the calm, graceful service is just what you need. Walking into the restaurant you are transported to an oasis of peace in crazy NYC! The decor is timeless. I rate the food in my top 10 experiences, for consistency, quality... More

Very disappointing in food quality especially since it formerly was excellent. Service was slow, menu bland, and prices are over the moon. We are regular diners at top shelf restaurants. This has fallen a long way.

This restaurant is apparently known as the power room because all the movers and shakers dine here while they're power broking America's fiscal future, but I'd be worrying they'd get distracted by the food too much. Wonderful service and done. We had the software shelled crab and a Chateaubriande that melted on the fork.

I took a group of 50 people for a business dinner and it was the highlight of our stay. We had a choice of the filet mignon or crab cakes. Both were very good but what you are paying for is the service, location and atmosphere. We have had food that was just as good for half the price however... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
