What a great place. Attentive and knowledgeable staff. Food was absolutely fantastic. Best is to order a couple of different dishes for each person and share them amongst your friends. Probably one of the best dinners I had in New York.

This is the Spanish version of ABC Kitchen to the south. The tapas are great but a bit over priced. Service is attentive and professional.

almost impossible to get into during reasonable dining hours but worth the wait, ambience upbeat and somewhat upscale, service surprisingly professional and knowledgable, wine list reasonably priced, food portions substantial and most of all the is J-GV in w/o the glitz.

We had lunch during Restaurant Week. While the servers were friendly, they were slow and a bit careless. We were surprised by the long waits for ordering, filling our glasses, clearing etc. especially as it was very quiet. Our first course arrived before the drinks...More

Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set
amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron
District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd
Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building,
which makes a good picture no matter what angle you
photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant
architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this
neighborhood is part of a historic district that was

Hi, There weren't any large groups in the restaurant when we were there but I can't see why they couldn't put a number of tables together - the restaurant would be the best people to check with though. I wasn't aware of any... More
