    very disappointing

    Although everything is very well prepared---the portions are small-- and for what it is extremely over priced in every respect with much too much foam.

    Great chef, OK staff

    Appetizers excellent, main courses small but delicious, desserts disappointing. Menu descriptions not always very descriptive and items (like ham) in the preparation not mentioned. Service extremely mediocre. Never poured the wine. Had to fight to get a second cup of coffee. Each dish explained so quickly and unclearly that none of us knew what we were eating. But it tasted good. Asked for a glass of sherry as an aperitif. They said sure, brought a glass which it turns out costs $30 for a small glass. Wine list excellent and many delicious low-priced choices.

    Needs to brush up.

    I think the chef has a great talent, the food was really well prepared. It has a soul and spirit. However, the wait stuffs are not very professional. The host, bar tender were cold and a bit rude. The waitress was rush and had consistent fake smile. I can easily have a better service at a dinner. The bar area is very small and tight. The waiters and waitress kept coming to get drinks and wines there and having a private conversation each other with loud voice while we were having a $20 glass of champagne for aperitif. It is so unprofessional for a supposed to be "high end restaurant". If you only care about food, try it, but if you are looking for a great overall service, ambiance, food and wine, go somewhere.

    Doesn't compare to other fine restaurants

    When you have wined and dined at other high end establishments, this restaurant simply does not compare. Don't waste your time or money!

    Not too bad, but a little haughty

    After experiencing a number of the high-end restaurants New York has to offer, I was excited to try Corton and their high-concept dishes. The interior was stark but still warm and simply decorated. The staff however seemed a little cold even though our server took care of my 3 person table well. The food does come in small portions but each dish was beautifully designed and served. I started with the hamachi and then the rabbit with scallops which were both delicious. Lamb dish was good as well. For dessert I ordered the cashew tart which was nothing too special but the brioche was DELICIOUS. So sticky and chewy, not too sweet. I'd come back here but not when I'm looking for a place to relax and kick back with some good food.

    Don't go there hungry!

    Though most of the the food here is breathtakingly wonderful, even original, I would never have believed it possible to serve with a straight face the tiny portions - all on supersized plates - Corton offers. You could count the salad pieces from five feet away; some dishes are literally the size of a single mushroom. The cod I had was undercooked and tasteless - but I'll allow them one mistake, as everything else was superb. But don't go there hungry. Expect a meal for two, without drinks, to cost $200. This is an elite restaurant, but you can dress casual, if you like.

    Small portions, mediocre service

    I found the portions to be laughably small on the regular price fixe menu. The food was good but I have to say it looked better than it tasted. The service was not great...as an example we were never offered the chocolates at the end of the meal that were offered to other tables. We asked for them and got them but who wants to ask? Also, there were two extra, erroneous charges on the bill that were removed after we mentioned them. Strange! all in all, its worth a try if you are a foodie but manage your expectations. btw...the view of the kitchen is a lot of fun...definitely check it out on the way to the bathroom!!
