We (2 couples) had a fun time at this restaurant, much better then we expected. The food was plentiful and delicious; we knew to share from various platters, although the waiter hadn't told us in advance. We had made a reservation, arrived on time and were quickly taken to our table. But the downsides were 1) the service - it was hard to get a waiter to come to the table and hardly ever the same one twice! and 2) the noise! Don't go there to plan your next day in NYC or discuss the day's adventures!
