We loved this bar (and we really liked Alinea). We were a little rushed because we didn't realize how un-bar-like the experience would be. We had dinner reservations after. I think next time we'll go here for after-dinner cocktails.

We arrived to a bouncer outside the door and I was surprised that he had to verify our reservation before we’d be let in; this definitely isn’t a place to just stop in for a quick drink without a reservation. We had booked the kitchen...More

You really have to experience The Aviary to appreciate it. The drinks are legendary and the food is 5 Star all the way. This is one place you really have to go at least once in your life. Schedule ahead, not an easy reservation to...More
