I read quite a bit about this restaurant and all of the reviews were very, very positive. While staying at the Hotel 57, I decided to give it a try. Although I was seated 45 minutes before music was scheduled to begin, I was informed that I would be charged a $10 cover charge if I was still seated when the music started. I declined to sit in the bar area and instead was seated in the small dining room. Although there were a flurry of waitstaff all around, it took quite some time to get a glass of water and a menu. I ordered the spicy lamb meatballs to start. This small plate had three large meatballs which were extremely firm and somewhat dry. Definately NOT spicy at all. These were served on hummus which I thought was an interesting flavor. While eating this, they brought me a french bread basket and olive oil. The bread was hard as a rock. Really bad. I thought I would take a White Truffle Pizza to go and that was the best thing I could have done. I tasted a piece and it was GREAT! Generous portion of thin crust with lovely cheese and mushrooms. I was pleasantly surprised. Overall, the menu has variety and entree averages $35 or so. Service could definately use room for improvement. This restaurant definately has room for improvement in service and seems inconsistent in food taste/quality. The pizza was redeeming and I would probably give them another try but with adjusted expectations.
