I've eaten at this restaurant on E.56th St., between Park and Lexington Aves. since the 1980s. Large parties are put in a separate room, with closed doors. Tables are far enough apart to have a private conversation. It is never noisy. The food is continental, tasty and well presented, and the service is excellent. I love the selection of desserts, including tiramisu, cheese cake, fresh berries, and creme brulee. I usually have an appetizer and main course, and I often add escarole, as an additional vegetable. The fish is always fresh, and there is a good selection: salmon, red snapper, branzino, sole, and trout. I've eaten here with my husband, other couples, and friends. They, in turn, have brought other friends because they were impressed by the food, service, and ambiance. This restaurant is also excellent for business lunches.

This lovely restaurant ended up being our first dinner in NY, and well worth the money.
Great and attentive service, lovely athmosphere and great food.
The meat and fish dishes were abit pricey for NY, but worth it for a special meal.
Would definately go again :)

I would strongly advise that you not eat at this restaurant. I went there for a business lunch a few weeks back. The prices were very high for what you get. I ordered a chopped salad as a starter. It was ~$12. The salad arrived as a wilted plate of lettuces and some browning veggies. Not worth even $3! Our main courses were also very mediocre. I then ordered a decaf coffee but they brought me a regular. I am very sensitive to caffeine and was wired all day!

Definitely save your money, time, and calories and go elsewhere.
