What an adorable place... Food was delicious, service was great and the Manager, Raquel was so sweet and outgoing and seemed to make every feel so welcomed.... We recommend the Calamari, Chicken Parmigiana and top it off with Tiramisu.....

We were looking for a brunch with a lively vibe. This place offers a $45 fixed price menu, including tip, rap music, shared tables and lots of areas to dance. There are no glasses, because they are too often broken. Each patron is given their own bottle with a straw. There were tons of birthday celebrations and people seemed to... More

I recently celebrated my birthday here with 15 guests. Once you step into this place you forget it's 1PM. You feel as if you're in a nightclub. Great music and good food. Great atmosphere and vibe. After eating we were able to get up and dance. Don't forget the individual bottles of champagne every person gets with their meal! Overall,... More

I had the pleasure of having brunch here in celebration of a friend's birthday. It was a group of 6 and I must say the food and atmosphere were amazing. We had reservations for 2 pm and had to wait to be seated as the restaurant was packed. Once we were seated, our waitresses was very attentive and checked on... More

We saw an ad for this place when looking for a meal on our last night in NYC, it didn't disappoint, the portions were huge, atmosphere really lovely particularly enjoyed the music playing very relaxing. We really enjoyed our meal - we shared a calamari starter, I then had a rib eye stake and my daughter had a stuffed chicken... More

We dined here once before and were pleased. This time, we were also pleased. The service was friendly and quick (by our choice) in that we had a Rangers game to attend. The selection of crostini is wide and well prepared...more than enough for two people. My main pasta was cooked right and the Bolognese sauce was well prepared. This... More

We were a group of four and two of the dishes were not well prepared and could only be described as disappointing. Both were overcooked. On the positive side as soon as we brought the issue to the waiters attention he sent a manager over and they immediately offered to prepare one of the dishes a second time. We did... More

The menu looked good but first appearances inside were dark and worn. Actually, the place seemed to try to be romantic with the candlelight only tables but that was a bit off-putting. We were hungry and it was late so we stayed to have a very delicious meal served by efficient and very courteous servers. A fairly good wine list... More

As expected or worse. Didn't think the food would be anything great in this brunch/club spot, and that's what it was. Nothing great, barely good. Went for a birthday party. Half of the stuff on the menu the server said they didn't have (crab cake eggs Benedict.....no crab cake) and when ordering the burger with blue cheese and bacon, the... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
