They have a lunch special if you sit at the bar. Since I was alone, it was a great way to spend a couple hours. The sandwich and fries were yummy. It came with a glass of wine (or a beer) and at the end, a warm chocolate cookie! All that for $20.99. Of course, by ordering another glass of... More

Burrata Salad with awesome carrot ginger puree. MMMM the burrata cheese was so good. The service was good. Also shared an nori seared raw tuna with wasabi peas and cilantro oil that was yummy. Service was a bit slow but fine.

Ate here pre show and food was good. However, I had my heart set on the lobster bisque and at 5:45p they totally were out of it. Additionally, they have a free drink offer on their website if you sign up for emails and the server had no clue what I was talking about and had to take my phone... More

For a bar and restaurant combined we really loved the food. The chef is magnificent. The price is even practical for it. The waiter is very knowledgeable of what is in the menu.

This was lovely place to have a drink but we only wanted a snack and couple of drinks, the bill was huge! It was really nice though but we would have preferred to have had a meal for such a high bill. The bar man was fantastic. He really knew his drinks and was a very good host to all... More

Stopped here for a bite while walking the city during the holiday season. Smallish establishment, with lots of good sounding items on the menu. Seared tuna was awesome. Husband had a burger said was good, nothing overly special. Staff very friendly. Price = NYC.

Great food - large portions. For Thanksgiving it was a pre-selected 3 course meal to choose and the food was tasty. The drinks were really good and atmosphere was upbeat and cheery. Only drawback was the staff was a little disjointed. We were seated for our reservation at 3pm right away but at the end of our meal new arrivals... More

The atmosphere was delightful...but don't sit anywhere near the entrance on cold days... you'll freeze. My review: little to no alcohol in Bloody Mary, I highly recommend the Italian Chicken Sandwich....the burger was good but undercooked even though it was ordered well done, had to leave our able to get condiments & water refills. Seems perhaps the place is understaffed.... More

We had Thanksgiving Dinner here and it was excellent. The food was great, the portions generous and the 3 courses plus a couple of alcoholic drinks only came to around $170 which for New York and on Thanksgiving is very good value for money. My only gripe was that the staff seemed a bit flustered and started seating people without... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
