We’ve eaten here several times and have always been pleased with the food and the service. Given the restaurant’s location in the heart of the theater district, it is not unusual for the restaurant to go from totally empty to completely full in a matter of minutes once a performance has ended. Yet the wait staff and the kitchen handle the sudden surge of customers quite well. No doubt they get lots of practice, but it is still an impressive performance.

We opted to eat right in the hotel one night, and it was a very nice experience-- food very good, service very prompt.

We enjoyed our meal in spite of the cramped quarters. The salads were unamazing; my husband liked his Bistro salad more than I liked the Caesar--it lacked the bite of a truly good Caesar (the dressing seemed watered down). We doubled-down on seafood and won both times. Crab cakes were perfectly put together. The salmon was finished with crispy edges. We completed the meal by sharing something chocolate--a mousse, probably.
