Visited with family menu choice not great but one opted for the duck which was ok it had cinnamon in it but it didn't tell you that in the menu which would have affect choice. One member of our party opted for ravioli which was a paltry portion money did not play a part in any element of this evening but to say it was overpriced is an understatement. The others in in our party went for the lobster spaghetti, where do I start, it tasted of vinegar, suspect wine hadn't been cooked down,onions were supposed to be crispy, they were raw and bitter and included pieces of skin. As for the pasta it was tasteless and the so called sauce was like water in consistency and could not adhere to the pasta. To add insult to injury the waiter totally disregarded the fact that both lobster dishes went back 3/4 of the food on the plate. I could have found a better way to dispose of $137. Totally shocked and underwhelmed from what is considered to be a relatively high end eatery.

Walked in off the street after seeing a diner eating the roasted chicken and root vegetables. Ordered that meal and it was rusticaly delicious. Old school not over seasoned and you could taste the earthy flavors. Ordered Panna cotta for dessert the melon flavor with vanilla creme was perfectly refreshing.

We met a friend here for dinner while visiting NYC. The food and service were excellent. The atmosphere was casual. My wife and I shared a steak frites and they split it in the kitchen which was a nice touch. Our only criticism was it was very loud with the patio doors open so talking/hearing was a challenge.

Good Food! Had the hummus app and lobster ravioli pasta both were excellent! Was with business associate who rushed service but they handled it gracefully.

Excellent Food. Seems more like a Hotel restaurant than anything else. The service is under-whelming at best
