    Great Overall - TINY portion

    Went for lunch - good service, beautful surroundings and clean and new. only problem was duck salad was microscopic. I left starving - can't they add more lettuce to the plate? The presentation of the "salad" was about 2 inches by two inches. Otherwise, I would have enjoyed everything but this sort of put a damper on things. Guys - just add a whole lot more lettuce and nobody will know. What were you thinking?

    The food here was quite nice, if the portions a little small. But the prices are extortionate for what they offer. The place is quaint, but simply not worth the money.

    Ok Brunch

    I went in with high expectations and they weren't quite met, but I also wasn't totally disappointed. A group of four of us got there around 1 pm on a sunday for brunch. It was about a 20 minuted wait - not too terrible, but I definately wouldn't wait longer then that. Two of us had the omlet (goat cheese and herbs). It was exactly what is to be expected - a three egg omelt with a side of fries. The fries were a little soggy which was disappointing because otherwise they were terrific. I had coffe, which was a pretty decent cup o' joe. My fiance had short rib hash. It looked good although I didn't try it, I will say though, he would have complained to us if it weren't good. Some reviewers have said the portions are small. I really don't agree. Yes, they are small compared to a diner or some chain restaurant, but in reality, I think the portions were fair and what they should be. My only real complaint is that our waitress was your typical west village don't bother me why are you here type server. Rude, short, and didn't even come close to a smile until she dropped our check and probablly only did so to "earn" a tip.

    Loved It

    I was shocked to see all these bad reviews. I went on a date a few weeks ago. We had a fabulous time. The food was amazing, staff was friendly, the place had a fun Saturday night vibe. We didn't have any issues in fact I have already told a few friends they should also check it out.

    very disappointing

    The atmostphere is the best thing about this place- it has the feel of a great neighborhood haunt. you read the menu and you think that this could be grand, but then you get the food and you are disappointed. like most people in the city, i am a foodie. i go out to eat for the food, not the peopke or the atmoshphere. the food here was fancy on paper but subpar. I had the duck with chestnut puree and pomengranate sauce. The chestnuts came out whole and the sauce was broken and the duck, which was supposed to be medium came out very rare. My friend ordered the cornmeal scallops- they tasted like something off of a chain restaurant. I could go on and on, but the point is that for that location in the heart of the West Village and for the pedigree of the owners, you expect more... a lot more.

    Expensive, touristy. Not recommended

    Long on atmosphere, short on food quality (and isn't that why you go there, primarily?) Pleasant enough as an emergency meeting place for business or a date esp. when someone else is paying but with numerous choices within literally one block why would you choose this place? Not returning until i hear changes have been made. Signed, a savvy foodie neighbor.

    Overpriced and disappointing lunch. Prices are on a par with very fine restaurants, small portions, and ordinary food are what you can expect.
