Never have I been insulted and humiliated by a hostess (her name was LIZ) as I was last night at this restaurant. We visited this restaurant on an evening when it was snowing heavily. When we arrived the bar area was packed but there were a few empty tables. We were missing one person from our party, I requested the... More

The food was fresh, fast and exactly as described. The appetizers and entrees were good but nothing spectacular. The flavors were a tad bland for the price....nothing you couldn't make yourself. Although the scene wad great, and so was the staff

I had a last minute business lunch the other day with eleven guests. Docks was able to get us in last minute. Let me say the food was really good. I ordered sushi as an app and had curried Thai shrimp as my main course. Let me say the sushi was so fresh and tasty. The Thai dish was nicely... More

We were here for a work lunch during restaurant week and delighted with the food and service. Everything arrived promptly, the service was very personal and our waitress very funny, the food was delicious, just the panna cotta didn't impress that much and the dumplings in broth came without a spoon which was a shame because the broth was delicious....

We enjoyed the Bottomless Brunch on Sunday! Outstanding! The Bloody Marys & Mimosas are included with sweet breads, fruit salad & a brunch entree along with juices & coffee for $26. Live music, great service & our entrees were very good. We had the Salmon Frittata & Lobster Hash.

I came to this restaurant alone, and was treated like a special guest. Usually, going anywhere solo means being forgotten. But at this restaurant, I was tended to so fluidly-- order taken, appetizers brought, wine poured, etc. really exceptional service! I had a steak and salad perfectly done. Will definitely return when in the Big Apple!

Friends made reservations at this restaurant with a gorgeous Art Deco style interior. It was restaurant week and a Thursday so a busy night and lots of large tables. We all ordered from the special prix fixe menu. Dishes included chowder and crab cakes for appetizers; char, lobster ramen, and hanger steaks for entrees; pannacotta and carrot cake for dessert....

Came here at around 10:30pm for dinner, quickly seated despite having no reservation. I had fish & chips which was absolutely delicious! The waitress was friendly, the ambience was great & overall, it was a great experience + food. Would recommend.

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.
