Restaurant was quick to seat us for our reservation. Service was not as good as I would have expected. The food was good but not spectacular. I was expecting much more since this is a Bobby Flay restaurant. Was also very expensive. I would recommend...More

I hate to be 100% negative, so there will be a positive in the review, but let me start with the staff: We arrived early for our 5pm reservation, 4:45pm. Reception ladies OK, but not overly friendly. Ordered cocktails at the bar.....they were good but...More

An amazing dining experience. My family and I enjoyed absolutely everything we ate. The Vidalia Onion soup was excellent, as was the chips with the blue cheese dip. Their filet was one of the best I’ve had . Highly recommend!!!

I personally think that the prices are within the range of good NYC restaurants. Lunch prices are a bit lower than dinner prices.
