We went here on a Friday night, originally intending to stay just for drinks before moving on somewhere else for dinner. Six hours later, we finally left. Located on the 2nd floor of the Renaissance Hotel, this restaurant has a little balcony that opens above 57th Avenue. The entire atmosphere was very (old world) Gentleman's Club (not the exotic dancer variety) with its leather couches and dark paneling.
Service was SPECTACULAR once Francis replaced our original waitress (who was really quite bad as we saw her once in the first two hours we were there; Francis had taken our orders and requests as we went along). He took extremely good care of us and made excellent recommendations when we (finally) decided to order dinner.
One friend decided to try tuna sashimi, which Francis touted as being some of the best in NY. Another New Yorker agreed it was really quite good. The lobster ravioli was a huge hit with us. And the truffle mac and cheese? TO DIE FOR!
Our biggest regret upon leaving that night was that we had no room to try their desserts. Well, that and we couldn't take Francis home with us.
