    Poor quality for a lot of money

    I was incredibly disappointed after leaving this restaurant on Mother's day. I read some of these reviews beforehand and should have paid attention. My tuna and salmon tartare so bland and the 3 sauces they provided with it, didn't help an ounce. Then I had the seared tuna with soba noodles and that wasn't much better. As it turns out, I wasn't alone - everyone else I dined with felt the same way. As for the cost - it was very expensive, but that wouldn't bother me if the food was halfway decent. and tasty. On a more positive note, the decor was quite nice as was the ambience.

    Very disapointing meal due to lack of overall value- very expensive, just ok food, and snobby service. I'd rather spend my money elsewhere.

    Better value elsewhere

    Came here with high expectations, real high ninja. But i'll tell you this. The appetizer was great - get the tuna on himalayan rock salt. it does not disappoint. BUT, for main course, if you're expecting to pay $40 a dish and get top quality cuisine, you might be better off going elsewhere. The duck was ok and the lamb was "average", but where it did not meet our expectations was in the service. They were inattentive and seemed disinterested.

    Poor Service

    Snobbish - made us wait for over an hour past our reservation and didn't even buy us a drink. Waiter was rude. Food was good but we could hardly enjoy it. Avoid unless you're one of the rich and beautiful or don't mind waiting an hour past your reservation without so much as an apology.

    Terrific brunch

    Sunday brunch here is a real treat, possibly the best in the city. Eggs benedict with chorizo replacing the canadian bacon was terrific; similarly my girlfriend's french toast was quite good. Appetizers were solid too, and dessert had a real highlight in the lollipop cheesecake tree, which is as amusing as it is delicious. Fresh raspberries didnt hurt either. Overall a definite winner. The earlier reviewer's comments about the crowd being female-heavy rings true, but I don't see any reason for guys to avoid the place and the environment did not make me uncomfortable.

    Unhappy Valentine's Day

    My wife and I went last night for Valentine's Day with another couple. Our reservation was for 9:30 and we arrived at 8:45 to enjoy a couple of cocktails. The night started wonderfully as the bartender was first-rate and very pleasant and the breadsticks in mustard oil were a nice changeup. At 9:40 we approached the hostess to see if our table was available. She said they were running behind and no tables in the dining room would be available for at least 20 minutes. We were offered a table at the lounge by the bar where the ambience was very noisy and crowded with people bustling back and forth; fun for cocktails but not for a romantic expensive dinner. The manager approached us and encouraged us to take the table by the bar saying that he considers them tables like any other. (of course this is not true - the dining room is much prettier with a much nicer look and feel and the bar tables are part of a lounge). He said we could sit at the table by the lounge and order and he would move us when something opened up. After about 6 of the 8 courses we were told that a table had opened up. We had seen several people being seated in the dining room in the meantime including one celebrity. We were taken to a table in the beautiful dining room to finish our meal which was basically the final course

    A Bumpy Ride

    Did a Restaurant Week lunch, with a nice choice of menu items. Service was good, but without personality. The food was inventive, tasty, and generous portions. Our table at the back of the lovely room was too close to the adjoining banquette and right by a closet the staff kept coming to, so while my view of the room was great, I was constantly being pushed into by the service staff. I kept moving my chair closer to the table, but the bumps kept coming, which put a negative spin on an otherwise good experience.
