The hostesses were beyond rude, but in honesty the waiters were very polite. Overall, the restaurant is very overrated and not a winter spot. The food was mediocre and overpriced and they didn’t have most of the alcohol we wanted. After a poor food experience,...More

Did not have any problems with our waiter or the hostess, if anything for a NYE dinner everything ran really smoothly and we got a good amount of attention. The food was great, the wine was great, the champagne was great. Nothing I can really...More

Definitely not aligned to the good reviews. It’s not the best choice in the west village. The food is modest and the service very modest. There’s a lot of much better Italian restaurants in the area.

We went for lunch before visiting Whitney, which is close by. We were recommended by a friend. The interior was interesting, an old garage transformed to an open kitchen simple restaurant, with little money invested for fit out. Food, pretty much disappointing and relatively expensive....More

We came in with a large party and were compelled to each eating a very expensive prix fixe menu. After a 35 mins wait past our booking time (the manager ‘politely’ asked us to all wait outside of the restaurant in a freezing weather), we...More

In 1998 this restaurant would have been a four stars as the food is good. However, the hostesses are hideous. Really hard to give it more than a two stars.

It used to be a very good restaurant. I went tonight and the chicken was literally raw. In addition, they were very rude to my wife on our anniversary date. I don’t think I’ll go back.
