    Beat expectations

    After reading mixed, I was not sure how the meal would turn. Overall, everything was very good. The food beat expectation and the menu was extensive. My only knock would be that service was not great - just ok.

    another good find near Union Sq.

    The place is much larger than it looks from the outside, and yet manages a comfortable atmosphere. If in a hurry and a small party, eat at the bar, where they'll serve you the full menu. The main dishes look good, but a combination of an appetizer and a salad might be even better, given their varied and interesting choices on both counts. The thick breadsticks are yummy, and they have good (but pretty expensive!) wines.

    OK but unoriginal

    The chef seems to like two flavors: sweet and salty. Sometimes they are combined, sometimes distinct as in the pecorino fondue. The ingredients are interesting and very fresh but the sauces are, well, either too sweet or too salty. The service is pretty poor. My friend and I were seated quickly but the waitstaff kept trying to take away our plates, bring the main course before we were finished with the appetizer and so forth. I'd say it was a mixed experience.

    Nice quiet place to dine

    My experience with Craftbar was pretty good. I had beef consomme, rabbit pate, dry-aged sirloin and ravioli. the first thing I have to say is that while all these dishes were delicious, they were also very expensive and the portions were quite small. I especially love the rabbit pate with the gamey taste. The ravioli was very good, but some may not like the goat cheese. I'd pass on the sirloin, opting to go to a steakhouse instead. It was just too expensive for so little steak. They have a large variety of wines, although they are a bit pricey. The cocktails are just as expensive and not that good. The restaurant itself very nice. Service is good, it's a very calm place to dine. Just very expensive

    Great place for dinner

    After my second time here, I wanted to rave about how much I like it here. The food has been great as well as the service. Price is pretty reasonable for the quality of food you get. The menu has a lot of options for all kinds of eaters - not only in meat vs veggie, but also in size. They have a great small plates selection, and their entrees don't dissapoint. I highly recommend the meatballs! The wine list is also nice, with a great by-the-glass selection. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat, and will definitely go back.

    Great food, crowded space

    The food is amazing at this place, although the portions are a bit small, but filling. The risotto balls and the grilled octopus were great, as well as the sea bass. The space is beautiful, but it was very loud and crowded. Make sure to get a reservation to be seated promptly!

    A word of warning to the post 50 crowd.

    It was a 745 Friday night dinner date with a young male friend. (a 32 year old hottie, by anyone's definition). I arrived 10-15 minutes early. The sweet young vapidini who greeted me at the door proceeded to interrogate me: Who had made the reservation for me? Who was this person in relation to me? My rez was in her computer, I was on time, dressed appropriately and had a working credit card. What else did she need to know? Having finally passed muster with the junior-cia-in-training. I was shown to a table. The WORST table in the establishment. You know the one, it's right next to the exit sign leading to the toilets. "Ummm, no, that won't do" said I. "Please show me something else." She mumbled something about clearing it with the desk and left me standing in the middle of the floor. Back she came, showed me to a perfectly acceptable banquette two-seater. The best table in the house? No, not by a long-shot, but acceptable. The food was good. Extraordinary? No. Incredible? Absolutely not. Just good. Expensive? Yes. Dinner exceeded $200 by a significant margin. Will I return? Not unless I'm with a party of people who think they're missing something. This is New York! I don't have to put up with this nonsense. Signed: Her Gray Eminence
