Nice place to eat. The service was great, the food was quick and tasty. They had a separate gluten free menu. Our fellow diners had the most enormous piece of flour less chocolate cake you have ever seen! We were too full to even attempt it, but they assured us it was fantastic.

After 3 full days at the New York Comiccon at the Javitz Center we need a break and a good meal...served to us. We needed something in walking distance and just stumbled in here. It was very small but they sat us quickly even with no reservations on a Friday night. The service was excelent and the decore was very beautiful and modern. Great floating candles from the ceiling. I had the best hummus I have ever had and there was something for everyone...vegan, vegetarian, meat-eaters, fish. I would go again.

We were looking for a decent breakfast on Sunday morning, and we stumbled upon this restaurant when heading toward the High line. The atmosphere was relaxed, the service was good, and the food was delicious. My husband and I had the eggs benedict and my son had the market burger. Felt like a good solid neighborhood place to eat.

This restaurant lived up to the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. We walked in without a reservation. The service was outstanding and extremely friendly, the huge salad delicious, and trout and flatbread great meals. We split a warm rice pudding for dessert and it was terrific. We enjoyed sitting in the window on a warm night drinking reasonably priced wine. Overall this was an excellent experience. This restaurant and Tavola in the same block provided two outstanding choices on 9th Ave north of 37th Street around the corner from our hotel.

I think this restaurant seriously needs to review it's booking policy!

We asked our hotel to book us a meal on Monday 2nd Sept at 8.30pm. I was there when the hotel phoned the restaurant using the number on their website. This number advised the line was having problems and to call another number, which he did. This just rang out. So we checked the website to make sure they were open (you can see where this is going!!).

Their website detailed closure/limited hours on July 4th and 5th and also detailed they were not open for lunch on Monday but were open 5pm - 10pm Monday and Tuesday for dinner.

So we made the reservation via their website booking system which was confirmed.

We walked down for dinner, eagerly anticipating what we thought would be a fantastic (GF in my case) meal. However we appeared to have missed it so we walked back and discovered 496 9th Ave ... closed! Gutted.

Why does online reservation system accept bookings if restaurant is closed? Why isn't there a message on one of the two numbers we called?

Ended up going to Nizza not too far away and that was wonderful.
