The service at the restaurant was good. We sat outside in the patio area. The three of us ordered the table d'hote and it was hit and miss. The chowder was really good. The most disappointing dish of them all was the paella. It was flavourless and overcooked. The cheesecake was good. I just expected more out of the restaurant... More

One of the best restaurants in town! Just take the elevator next to Rockefeller Center and indulge in great food and drinks! Be aware: It will be expensive, but what good restaurant in NYC is not? Great break after shopping. Note that the kitchen has a break from 15:00 to 18:00, so you will have a small choice of little... More

We started off with a ravioli filled with scallops and lobster followed by a lobster in butter with refined vegetables and closed the dinner with cheesecake with delicious strawberry sorbet and fresh made merengue. Every ingredient was prepared in a very refined manner and extremely fresh. We enjoyed this 3-course mail for only USD 49 very much and would recommend... More

Great food and great service. The shrimp and the grilled calimari were both particularly good and the cod steak was simply stunning

I paid $360 (tax and tip included) for a 3-people business dinner with appetizer, main course and wine. The food was very creative and there were many diet friendly options. The service was effective. I found that $120 per person - considering the location and the food- was a good value. But mostly the location is spectacular. This was my... More

I choose the title of the review after the most representative dish of this restaurant. They have four types of oysters , and we felt that Canadian ones are more appropriate for our taste. Tuna and Salmon sushi was in line with our expectations , but the Yellow fist tail was to small for an appetizer. Finally the pudding ,... More

It's super fresh and beautifully prepared with Japanese overtones Suggest sushi starter and anything else from the menu. I usually get the wonderful staff to suggest what's best Never had anything I did not absolutely love. Go and enjoy. I almost forgot the atmosphere. Great 12 months - sit outside if weather permits

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.
