The food and service were fantastic. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed their meal. The lamb especially was a huge , delicious portion. Despite that, this does not appear to be a popular dining destination, most likely because this restaurant is upstairs in Saks Fifth Avenue. That made us feel a little uncomfortable because our party was one of only... More

Had lunch there with my girlfriend. We both had the grilled vegetable plate and loved it. It's a very generous portion and we actually could have split one. Very tasty and beautifully presented. The accompanying rolls were delicious. Tasted somewhat like a pretzel. Went well with our veggies. There was a pianist playing throughout our meal which was very enjoyable.... More

Have visited this restaurant for many years and while it seems that the decor has improved substantially the food has become very average. I had the chicken chopped salad and my friend had the steak salad. Both were just okay. Service was mediocre. The atmosphere was lovely with a live pianist.

We were shopping at the Galleria and just stopped in for a drink and appetizer. It was happy hour and there was live music. A wonderful duo on piano and bass violin. The restaurant is really beautiful and worth a trip just to see the contemporary design. I loved the sinks in the bathroom with rocks in the basin. We... More

Wife and I ate on a Saturday night at 7:30 -- there were not many people eating there which kind of worried us. We chose the restaurant based on the online menu -- but the menu is MUCH shorter in the actual restaurant. There is a nice bar/lounge area, but then the dining room is separate and very fancy. The...

Had lunch while shopping and what an oasis! The decor was super cool with a mid century modern flavor, very chic. Food was great, all in all a great experience and I would definitely return.

Me and two of my girlfriends went to 51fifteen which is inside the Saks 5th Avenue Store which is part of the Galleria. This store was renovated and re-opened and it is beautiful! Even if you cannot afford the retail items, go and have a stroll around. It is just stunning! They even have a full bar on the first... More
