Great food, ambiance, music. Even the vegan in our group loved it. Portions and variety were excellent. The band was superb. Some great opportunities to dance or just watch others dancer. Warm atmosphere. Will be going back.

Excellent food and good service. Service is usually fast. We have been to this restaurant almost every visit to NYC and always look forward to returning. The noise in the place can be loud in the back if there is live music.
