We went last night for the valentines day very pricey prefixed dinner. The Portions were so ridiculously small I left completely unsatisfied. The entree looked like it was for one and t he sides we good but small and clearly not enough for two. I recommend if you go here do NOT get any sort of pre fixed dinner... for the amount of food your get it is entirely NOT WORTH IT. Nice atmosphere...but not worth your buck.

I read all the previous reviews and a couple ppl mentioned their portion size were fairly small however when I went last evening, all their appetizer (tuna tarte), entrees (mussels, filet mignon) were fairly big portions. My friend and I were stuffed after the entrees and we ordered dessert afterwards. The only complaint I had was the lady who checked our coat at the reception, she was rude. I would definitely go back again..

I came with my friend here for RW dinner. I ordered a cauliflower potage, mushroom fricasse, and chocolate financier. My friend got shrimp app, pork loins, and vanilla dessert. The food in each case was decent but not outstanding, but comes with miniscule serving and huge tags. The mushroom sauce was definitely way too salty, and my friend said her pork basically tasted like a lump of fat. The desserts were pretty good though. The person who took our reservation was extremely courteous. However, our waiter kept pressuring us to order more drinks. Even though we both already ordered cocktails, he kept asking us if we wanted bottled instead tap water, or some other drinks in addition. I did not appreciate that. Given the high price tags and the rather generic French-ish menu offering, I would not come back here for the food. They do have a lengthy wine list popular with the after-work crowd, but the food is more show than substance.

I was taken here for a business lunch. I will say that this is a hip cool place for a mid-town location. The style is very modern. However, the meal was very dissapointing. I had the lobster bisque for an appitizer which was cold when I got it. I then had the scallops which were good but only 5 of them served with a small amount of rabbit food. For almost $30 for scallops I would expect more. I had to grab a sandwich from a deli on my way back to the office.

First of all, I've never seen a cooler looking place in manhattan, super modern and chic, which made me look like a stud in front of my date. Saw a celbrity at the next table, and we were treated like one by our waiter. An extensive bar menu made for a great night of martinis and oysters, which our server suggested. From japan? Not sure, but they were the best I've ever had!!! Then, I had a succulent tuna steak that was served medium rare, and an AMAZING cheesecake for dessert. Overall, my bill was way cheaper than I imagined it to be, and I was tended to my everyneed. I feel like this place is a hidden gem everyone should know about!!!

The decor is fine, whether you like chic or otherwise. The food is actually pretty good, but seriously undermined by the lack of service. From the start, it gave us a bad feeling when the waiter lacked any of their bar's vodka selection when we first got acquainted. He did not introduce himself; he didn't know too much about the specials except saying it's good, it'll melt in your mouth... nothing about the ingredients, way food is prepared...etc. Although we'll give it to him that he was thorough w/the with boullabaise. An overall disconnect from the kitchen. Oh, and the kicker? ---> he forgot to check with us regularly. Water glasses left empty; second round of wine not served before a dozen bites into our entrees, entree plates sitting for awhile before we finally asked for it to be bused and suggested that they bring us our dessert menus. During the course of the evening, we were served by 2 overseeing managers when we couldn't find our waiter. Even the casual but friendly waiters from craftbar (we tried the night before) did a better job knowing their food, but for only half the price.

we (my wife and I) liked the place. The staff was very courteous (we made a unplanned stop for a early dinner and had no resevation) and wer quick to find us a table (it was not very crowed when we got seated, but started to get packed as we left). The decor is very contemporary and looks cool. The food was quite good (lobster bisque soup , steak and mussels were all good). we thought the portions were bit too big (portions did not match the Chic decor!). Although food was great, I think I woul d have pefered smaller portions (way to omuch fries with the food) that leaves me wanting more!! Dessert menu did not impress us, though the lemon sorbet was very good. Also seems like a good place to go for business dinners....
