Went here for a RW dinner with my mother. We did not have a reservation as it was last minute but were told that if we came late it should not be a problem. Got there about 10:15 and they did have a table for us, but it was not in the main dinning room, but rather downstairs in what appears to be a lounge dinning room. I say that because it is right near a bar and even a DJ. Nonetheless, the atmosphere was still decent, in such a cozy space, mind you there were still about 20 tables down stairs. Upstairs appeared to have a more elegant manner, but was somewhat loud and downstairs was even louder. Of course the place was full so that no doubt adds to the volume, but it was a little over bearing at times. To emphasize some of the other people's comments this is most certainly a "fashion" "trendy" spot and I must say an extremely young crowd. I'm 30 and was probably in the top 10 oldest people in the room. It was a little odd, no exaggeration, 90% under 35 80% probably under 28 and 90% female. My mother felt a tad unconfortable with the age gap, but nevertheless we had a nice meal. First off the food choices were interesting for a RW menu, and even better was the fact that they were quite good. The pasta app. was fantastic as was the Calamari, the main courses were fairly large as well, the beef was big and extremely tasty, the cheese tart, was OK but a little small (as to be expected with a tart) and a little devoid of flavor. Deserts were quite good as well. Overall, a pretty decent value and very solid food. I would go back but probably only with people my age, and would prefer to sit upstairs.

went there with a group of 5 girls and we were treated very very well. got seated right away and the staff gave us wonderful service. it's definately a 'see-and-be-seen' place, where you are constantly getting the up-and-down look from everyone around you. it has more of a club feel instead of a relaxing dinner feel. however cool the atmosphere is, the food is a little odd. i got the ravioli, which was good if you removed most of the sauce, but the sauce had really odd herbs in it that just didnt work together very well. presentation was impressive. good drinks. i will definately be going back, but i'm not sure what to order to eat...

The atmosphere was really enjoyable, you should really check this place out. Food was delish and reasonably priced. Would definitely return when I visit NYC again.

The space is simply beautiful, with very good table spacing. Staff was excellent from the initial greeting (very hot hostess), and servers. I found the appetizer choices rather limited and the entrees were garnished with sauces that were too rich and heavy. Also, some of the garnishes were awkward. The food itself varied from very good (striped bass), to so so (halibut that was too dry). And in general, everything was a bit salty. Overall, a pleasnt enough experience to give this restaurant a second try.

When you first walk in you can't help but notice how beautiful and unique looking this restaurant is. I had 8:30 reservations and was seated right away. The staff is very friendly and are very attentative. For dinner I had the calamari, snapper special and my girlfriend had the trout and butternut squash soup, all dishes were excellent. For dessert I had the black forrest cake which was very rich and prepaired nicely, but what I really enjoyed were the home made chocolate that the waitress brought over with the check. The chocolate melted in my mouth... After dinner we went downstairs which is equally as beautiful as upstairs but totally different looking. Cool tunes are played since the downstairs level serves as a lounge and dining area. Overall this was a great dining experience and would def come back to butter.
