After a fantastic 21 night rail tour of the US from west to east coast we decided to eat on our last night what looked like a brilliant restaurant. We were a party of 6 which immediately puts on 20% service charge! We didn't mind paying this as it seems to be the norm all over America if only we given some sort of service, the waiter was rude and seemed totally uninterested in us. Although we asked to pay as separate couples this was ignored and a further drinks order. The food was good but lukewarm as served on cold plates. This was the worst service we received over our entire visit what a shame it had to end on that note.

stayed at the NYLO hotel and went here for breakfast for convenience sake. Overpriced, modest menu selection. Coffee tasted watered down. Had the omelet for $8 but you had to order each add-in separately, each with its own fee. Weasel-y way to price structure, I'd say. The pancakes my daughter had were very good though. There are several diners within walking distance that are superior with better prices.

Only had breakfast here one morning, because it was our hotel lobby, as the main lobby was under going renovations. (On the Ave). Great food, great presentation.

Staed at the Belleclaire across the street, we stopped in cold not knowing anything about it. Boy were we surprised at the quality of the food. Absolutely wonderful. We ordered the burrata with cherry tomatoes for our appetizer. Sooo good. I had the lobster ravioli: beautifully made pasta in a lobster bisque sauce. It was to die for! The taste of my husband's spaghetti with lobster was amazing as well. Not cheap, but for what we got I would have expected to pay twice the price.
