Let me preface my review by saying that I am not connected with the Restaurant. Perhaps Gotham eater had one bad experience with the Restaurant which clearly is the rare exception and not the rule .... I have never had a bad meal here! The food is exceptional, my favorites include the Chilean Sea Bass, Lobster and believe it or not the meatloaf is wonderful. The Mediterranean salad is great. I always order it ... I wish they would write a book of their recipes!! One of their signature dishes is their Mac and Cheese and discerning Mac & Cheese eaters will tell you it is the best in town!! I love it and I am not normally a mac & cheese fan. Get the appetizer portion to share because otherwise, you will fall over from the regular portion. Their burgers are wonderful too...Gayle King and burger lovers, you should try the burger here, served on an English muffin! By the way, yes it is across the street from a gas station but so what? I am sure, the owners did not necessarily want it there. Frankly I am too busy talking with my friends and enjoying my meal to ever notice the Hess station. There are million dollar apts going up right across the street too and nobody seems too concerned about those views! Sorry Gotham you had a bad experience but maybe you should give it another chance or are you connected with a competitor?

Unbelievable. I wrote a critical review of this place on this site early on in the year. My experience at this restaurant was very unpleasant. It was poor setting (x from gas station), incredible attitude on part of servers as if they were doing you a service. The food was decent, although a bit overpriced. I cannot help but think that some of the subsequent reviews were written by the restaurant or its representatives themselves.

I was here a year ago and it was fantastic. We decided to try it again last week and were even happier than the first time! Every single thing about this place is amazing. The mac and cheese is phenominal, as are the short ribs and filet. The menu changes seasonly and this was the first time we had the spring menu. No complaints at all from the whole table. Can't wait until the summer menu comes out and they have their watermelon tomato salad again! Both owners were there and came over to see how things were going. The waitstaff was very attentive and friendly. We've recommended this to many people and all of them have also come back with rave reviews!

First, the food is fantastic. If you go, try not to get caught up with the theater crowd...go after 8, and you'll miss them. Otherwise, it can feel overcrowded and the service suffers. Most of the staff is professional and gets the job done, however we've had a couple of pretentious, wannabes that were less than accomodating.

What a great surprise. In town for business and this place was recommended by some of my associates. The entrees were excellent and some were filled with good old comfort qualities. The service was top notch. Everyone was friendly and went out of their way to make sure we were well taken care of. The atmosphere is casual/metro/elegant. You notice the attention given to the smallest details. The owner was on hand and had some great recommendations. As one knows you always say no to desserts but mean yes and in this case we wanted more. So we came back a second night. Everything was just as good. We will definately be back.

This is our regular dinner/brunch hangout--great food, great atmosphere--we've never had a bad meal there. Highly recommend the shortribs and chicken quesadillas and any of the desserts. Whenever we have people in town, this is the place we take them and it's always a hit.

i celebrated my birthday at this hip yet cozy tenth ave. gem and had a blast. the food was some of the best i've tasted in the city-if you go, you MUST get the lobster taco. my filet, too, was so enjoyable i may have licked the plate. i say may because after two or three of their "broadway booze" cocktails, i started to really loosen up. to top it all off, our waiter(the waitstaff is very attentive and gracious) surprised us with desserts, including a chocolate souffle so rich we ordered another one. i would definately recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxed night out while still getting stellar food.
