Lunch special 1/2 lobster sandwich (all bread and virtually no lobster) and cup of chowder (so small) was poor value for the $18. Made up with french fries. Left hungry. Manager uncooperative in initially giving us a window table saying it was reserved when it was not. Poor attitude. Waiters were good.

It is not fair the quantity or caliber of food you get for the price. The staff must know this place's days are numbered because they were generally disinterested.

Small portions at a huge price. I've never seen a cup of chowder so small. It was about 1/4 of the size of a normal cup - There were maybe 4 tablespoons in there. Lobster roll for $26 mostly roll; little lobster. Worst part was that 3 of us spent $200 including a 20% tip. We were asked to give up our BAR table so they could seat people who were waiting. To top it off, we left hungry, and the 3 of us are small women.

Felt burned after eating here with wife and friend. Nothing about any single dish was particularly good, the waiter vanished a couple of times (I think to have a smoke) and it was as expensive as all the other really nice places we went to in NY. I should have known when it was half empty despite fashion week down the block that we were in trouble.

My wife and I went to see the last performance of south pacific and stopped here for a bite afterward.Very nice ambiance but this did not match the food unfortunately. Our server was extremely nice but service was sloooow. We had the prix fix dinner...app was clam chowder and the clams were essentially like chewing on rubber bands. My wife had the cod cakes ..these were good. For entree I had the risotto ,very mediocre. My wife had the skate which looked disgusting and didn't taste much better. Best part of dinner was dessert, I had the blueberry crumble which was quite good and my wife had the lemon meringue which was also good. Extremely expensive (in my book anyway $140 w/ tip for two) and very little value. Scratching this one off our list....

Went here for lunch. Salads and apps all made in advance, came right out after being hastily dressed. Drinks came in two installments. One seafood entree was "fishy." Not real fine dining but it has fine dining prices.

Yes, I'm a native New Yorker who lives in Manhattan and who has eaten at the finest restaurants all over the world. I've also eaten at many local, plain, neighborhoody type restaurants. After reading some of the negative reviews, I wonder whether I ate at the same restaurant (Friday, July 30) because my first-time experience at my neighborhood restaurant was so wonderful. The feeling of clean, open space with exceptionally comfortable chairs (I was by myself & did not sit in a booth), high ceilings was inviting from the moment I entered. Everyone was so accommodating. I had a Bloody Mary, the spicey chopped salad and the soft shell crabs la plancha and a cappuccino. The different bread/sticks/muffins served were diversified and the oyster crackers that were at the table were refreshed immediately as I nibbled on them (it is my addiction since I'm a child & I guess I haven't kicked it). My water glass was filled promptly. My waiter was knowledgable, the staff was friendly and I had a great time. I'm going with friends for lunch either 7/31 or 8/1 and we'll sese if we all find the excellence consistent, which is the hardest thing for a restaurant to keep up with. I'll let you know.
