“Attentive service with beautiful dishes.”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Being one of the main stops on our visit to Manhattan, this spot did not disappoint. My wife and I opted to have the 12 course tasting menu and each dish was meticulously arranged and balanced. My personal favourite was the squab dish while my wife's, the red snapper. The wine pairing is definitely worth it if you have the wallet for it. Great thanks to Gorges for being a spectacular waiter.

“Hard to get into, but totally worth it.”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

This was the one restaurant I wanted to get to during my most recent trip to the city. The tasting menu -- all just the right size -- was incredible. The staff was so knowledgeable about the food (and the paired wines), how could anyone not love this place. If you plan to go though, you must make a reservation. Call the reservation line as soon as you know you will be in the City, and then once you have a date and time, you will need to call them (or answer their call) the day before so that they keep the reservation. The place was completely packed. And for good reason. Enjoy.

“Outstandinf”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Our daughter lives in NYC, & we make frequent visits to see her. We always look forward to the great restaurants she lines up for us to enjoy. WD-50 was fantastic. Loved the simplicity of the tasting menu, the atmosphere & incredibly prepared dishes!

“OMG”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

amazing! 12 courses of heaven. Plan for a long evening to savor the tastes. The dishes come out quick quickly but there is a good break before the more substantial dishes come out. Wine list is fantastic and service was excellent. $125 perhead before wine but it was just fantastic!
