    Not recommended

    As echoed by others here, the quality of food and service has dropped substantially. It is sad to see another neighborhood restaurant falter in a location otherwise devoid of quality dining options. Last night's experience there has lost another customer for good. After sitting down, we waited perhaps five minutes for water or a menu, and waited exceptionally long to get our drinks and appetizers. When the entrees came in, I had received the wrong item. The waiter was surprised by the error, and after perhaps another five minutes of waiting, he came back to tell me that they had run out of the dish. He said I could select another entree and it would come immediately. I picked the wild mushroom risotto and waited at least 20 minutes for it to arrive. Meanwhile my fellow diner was being neglected by the waitstaff, not even receiving refills of water. Finally I gave up on the order and asked another waiter for our check. I never received my entree. The check came back and everything but my entree was on the bill a total of $80. Not even a token discount or drinks removed from the order! According to the time on the receipt, we wasted an hour and a half there for one round of drinks, apps, and half of our table's food for $80. Meanwhile, the quality of the food was lacking compared to most restaurants in this price range. The foie gras millette was eggy and had an intense mayonnaise flavor. The gnocci dish was unbalanced with it's root vegetables. The risotto was soft and lacked truffle flavor.

    Overpriced and underfed

    My boyfriend and I went here Saturday night and weren't impressed. Our waitress was excellent, but there isn't much else to compliment. We ordered the fondue with crudités and apples. The fondue didn't have a strong flavor, which seems unusual for a restaurant whose main focus is cheese. Also, the crudités plate was tiny - it came with one piece of broccoli, some small pieces of pepper, two mini carrots and little pickles. The apples and bread were good - I'd recommend getting that if you go. But I don't think we'll be returning in the near future - there are much better deals (and food) to be had in the city.

    Excellent food and ambiance

    A friend and I came here for Restaurant Week 2008. I had the parmesan gnocchi - and it was excellent! I also ordered the sauteed skate wing - which was well prepared - I think it might have been the blood oranges. The panna cotta dessert was mediocre at best, but the other two courses made up for it. We will definitly be back to try the fondue. I would recommend this place for a dinner with a friend, and also for a date (as we also saw a lot of couples).

    Amazing parmesan gnocchi...good brunch

    My friend and I came here for sunday brunch. It was just two of us so the wait wasn't too long....although the place was SO crowded (The brunch crowd seemed to be made up mostly of families). My friend and I both got the pre - fixed menu for brunch. We both got the parmesan gnocchi and it was PHENOMENAL!!! We both finished it, dipped our bread in the sauce and looked up, as if we were shocked it/the eatting experience was already all gone! (This was the highlight of our brunch). Otherwise the rest of brunch was pretty good. I got eggs w/ their bacon and hash brown-like side....pretty good but I would quickly trade it in for more parmesan gnocchi. I would DEF come back b/c I heard their fondue is AMAZING!! I would also need to try out their other cheeses....something the place is famous for....YUM!!! :)

    Cheese Lover's Paradise

    GREAT cheese selection for dinner and for purchase. Artisanal cheese blend fondue is great. Try the gougeres, the steak, risotto...basically everything...ONLY negative is there is no air conditioning and it gets very warm in the summer...LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place

    Cheese heaven

    Yes it was very loud, but the food was delicious and our server was terrific. The Artisanal Fondue was excellent, although I wouldn't bother with ordering the crudite next time. We also ordered the cheese platter with fruits and meat. Yum! We were so full we didn't have room for dessert. Wonderful experience, I will be back.
