1) The stairs to the restroom are very steep. I do not suggest you go here with an elderly or handicap person. 2) I shared a few apps and sides, some were good, others I didn't eat after the first bit. The chef is more into acidic flavors then I'd like (gazpacho tasted like dressing me to me). It didn't hate it, but I didn't love it. I did LOVE the apple and pretzel tart for dessert though. It was perfect for those who like a little dessert but nothing overly sweet.

I was here over the holiday weekend with a group of girlfriends for a birthday dinner. They seated us promptly in the back garden, which was lovely. We started out with oysters, a ricotta heirloom tomato salad, carmelized onion tart, and beet salad with 'yogurt' panna cotta. Most of the table ordered lemon-ricotta gnocchi with fava beans, which was delicious. I had the stuffed trout with asparagus and mushrooms. Everything was well prepared, the service was wondeful, and we enjoyed the evening. Recommended for a nice atmosphere and good food.

it is just fine. Good NY place. typical, well-done-with care and love, well taken care of, just the right 35-50 year old establishment with expensive wine by the glass and WINE BY THE BOTTLE. Enjoy the right NY to be done the right way. It is great to be young in your 40s. Thanks Mom for my edu. I can afford August!

My friend and I decided to check this place out on a whim. We went for dinner on a Saturday night. We did not have a resservation and we were seated, pretty much, within 5 minutes of our arrival. We sat in the garden and the atmosphere was really lovely. The appetizers were definitely sized for two and I even had my 2-year-old daughter with me and she ate whatever we ate and there was plenty to go around. The portions were not small at all, and we were very stuffed when we left and didn't even have room for dessert. The waitstaff was very considerate and they were very friendly to my daughter and really made sure we had everything we needed to make our meal a delight. We found the menu to be innovative and they let us taste our wine before making our decisions. Their pate is rich and velvety and delicious. Their stuffed trout was mouth-watering. We got to meet the chef on our way out and he was really sweet and modest. We went back for brunch the next morning, we liked it so much. The brunch was, admittedly, not quite as exciting as dinner - but it was fine. I would not order the mimosa again...but the food was fine. Much more likely to go back for dinner.

The portions were tiny, the fritata overcooked, no bread and nothing on the table to munch on. I don't understand the attraction. Way overpriced for what you get

The rrom was extremely warm, the waiter vaguely unpleasant, and the food, nothing to write home about. Will not go back here, when there are so many better places around.

if you weigh more than 120 lbs, you probably won't fit down the stairway down to the bathroom. I am a female with a waif build, and had trouble fitting down this stairway, or maneuvering through the restaurant for that matter. The service was subpar. Waitress recommended some bleh won't write home beers-and later when the bill came, we found out that they were the most expensive ones on the menu-somehting like $25 for a glass- lovely. The tarte flambe was good, but not great. The chorizo sandwich was just a mediocre tasting sandwich slapped on a plate with no side, no garnish, no nothing-very careless. The dandelion sald-ok at best. We also waited 30 minutes for appetizer to come out, and an additional 45 minutes for entrees at lunch! At whopping $100 for lunch for two, we will never return. This food is uninspired. and the restaurant is careless about the menu and service to patrons- the former might be excusable, but the latter is not.
