This restaurant is incredible! Order the Chuizo risotto for sure! I have been 2 times in 2 years and look forward to going back next summer!

Restaurant row's top choice! Affordable too!

“Not Great”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

My sister and I chose this restaurant because of the quaint, tiny outside patio. The waiter seemed rushed but restaurant was less than half full. We shared guacamole with tortilla chips...guacamole was good, tasted fresh chips were stale. My sister had a chicken breast with demi glaze that she said tasted processed...not appealing. I had shrimp scampi that was supposed to be in a lemon sauce. It was honestly horrible....no lemon AT ALL. Sauce tasted like beef in a mug. They seriously need a chef in there!! Have never written a review on anything before. Loved, loved, loved New York though! Lots of wonderful restaurants and New Yorkers out there.

“Theater bound?”
Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

What a great place to go in Restaurant Row! Great food and service. Enjoyed before the theatre and found it an affordable choice in an expensive city. Lived the show tunes that played while we ate and intimate setting. Must go here!

“What can I say”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Enjoyed the surf and turf. Steak was as ordered and the lobster was tender. Very good meal. The place definitely is crowded on both the restaurant and piano bar sides but worth it to squeeze in. Great meal. Great entertainers. Worth the time and money on any trip to NYC. The singers will wow you and will sing requests. I did help out with a little tip but it is worth it. Food is a little pricey but again worth the money.

“Pre theatre dinner”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Very nice find in the theatre district. We both ordered and enjoyed the Couscous & Chorizo Risotto. Very delicious and much lighter than risotto made with arborio. I also suggest you order the garlic bread because it was to die for.
