“Third visit, and great food again”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

Having eaten here on 2 previous visits, we looked for a different restaurant. But most other restaurants were half empty, and this one had a line of people waiting - that tells you how good the food is. We waited an hour for an outside table but it was worth it. All 4 in our party enjoyed their food and we would thoroughly recommend.

“Great ribeye steaks!”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

Booked here for Thanksgiving night, not many places open on Fifth Avenue but this place was really busy.
Arrived early and had a drink at the bar, within 10 minutes our table was ready. We both ordered the rib eye steaks, prior to this bread with oil & balsamic vinegar with herbs arrived and we munched our way through that which was very nice. As we had been waiting a while for our entrees, waiter brought some more bread with oil & balsamic vinegar which was a nice touch.
Normally we feel as though we are rushed in and out of any American restaurants so it was a nice change to have to wait about 20 minutes for our entrees to arrive.
When they did come, they were absolutely superb, perfectly cooked on a bed of lovely potato mash and with properly cooked crunchy al dente vegetables - other restaurants please take note, this is how vegetables should be cooked, not boiled to a soggy mush where all the flavour has been destroyed.
Our only real query was the drinks pricing which for two beers should have been 12 dollars but somehow managed to creep up to nearer 14 dollars - either the menu is wrong or the staff are charging the wrong prices which was a shame but in the overall scheme of things was a minor inconvenience.
We will be back!

“Great find”
Reviewed November 22, 2013 via mobile

We loved the atmosphere from the moment we walked in. Had a drink at the bar, staff was outstanding.

Dinner - yum! Escargot perfect as well as the lamb. Trio of seafood was a great way to try three amazing dishes.
