Food very nice but very expensive. Restaurant was lovely and clean and set in a beautiful old building which had been decorated in keeping with the building. Staff in short supply but our waiter was very good. Surcharge of 17% added to our bill!

It's a combination of bar and resturant and both parts works well. The menu in the resturant is bar inspired but has some nicer dishes as well. The staff did their job but not so much more.

The character of this place is awesome, older well maintained building, not as noisy as I expected. The service was quick, staff provided excellent service without being overbearing. As a single diner I did not feel any pressure to hurry. The pizza was unbelievably good,...More

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
