    Great Meal

    Went to Restaurant Week Lunch with my family. The menu selections for the lunch were all very appealing. The entire meal was excellent, from the appetizer to the entree to the dessert. Everything was fresh and the portions were very generous. In addition, the service was especially good. We had a delightful waitress named Jennifer. I strongly recommend the restaurant for the Restaurant Week Lunch which we were told was going to be continued through September. I live in Manhatten and eat out several times a week and strongly recommend the restaurant. Again, it was a very good meal and the restaurant is very nice looking.

    wine overpriced

    we were regulars here until we were charged $62 for a bottle of Hope shiraz that I lbought at the liquor store the next week on sale for $11.20 instead of the usually reasonable $14. As a result, our frequent visits stopped. when will they learn.....

    Poor quality

    I was shocked at the low quality seafood considering the location and the price. Maybe it was an off night but I'm not ready to risk it again, we'll leave it at that.

    We didn't like it

    It wasn't too pricey, but expensive enough that we expected more. It was all sort of blah and the staff seemed tired. Eating here was almost depressing.

    Not worth it.

    Nothing special about the food here. I went with a group of friends, and had the chowder and fish. Nothing was memorable. The restaurant itself is nice, but it's certainly nothing special in terms of the quality of food. It's your typical NYC "pay a lot because it's fancy" restaurant. Definitely not worth the price. I will not go back and would not recommend.

    We found all the food to be of poor caliber. The Manhattan and Boston Clam Chowder were watery and rather tasteless. The main dishes were disappointing. Iitems on the menu were processed to barely recognizable forms. What was most upsetting was the answer of "no free refills" to the request for more coffee. After spending $180.00 without tip the words and the thought of "no free refills" seemed even more distatseful than the food. When I expressed my discontent to the maitre'd, he reassured me that no other restaurant that serves the very expensive pressed coffee offers free refills. Even the term free refill for a 200 dollar tab seems absurd. The fact that other restaurants do not offer "free refills" does not ameliorate my repugnance. I will not eat here with or without "free refills" ever again.

    Had the Lobster roll at $27 - ridiculously small amount of lobster meat. Bread roll was cut not even 1/4 way in and just a smattering of lobster across the top. Other places in town serve a lobster roll at same price that is stuffed full of lobster and this was nothing special even to begin with. Disappointment.
