I really like the quality of the food here. The menu is great, and I come here for a brunch that's a step above. I generally have had to wait in line for about 20 minutes to get a table, as they do not take reservations (for the better, I believe).

The atmosphere fits the the name. It's a cozy, rustic place in the middle of Manhattan. The brunch food is excellent -- just be prepared to wait if your party is larger than 2.

Had dinner two nights ago, - what a gem.. i live in the neighborhood and generally only go for brunch when i have friends in from out of town.. went for dinner for the first time and it was delicious, well priced and the atmosphere is adorable. I noticed "neighborhood" types eating alone and i could tell they were there for a "favorite dish"... will start going for dinner more often even by myself.. i may get take out tonight...

I usually come here at least once in the summer because while the food is poor, the outdoor seating is special. Today, the food was really disappointing. I had the pumpkin pancakes with walnuts. The three pancakes had hardly any pumpkin taste and the third one had no walnuts. The service was gracious, but I doubt I'll be back.

This place is not what it used to be. I have been here on several occasions since 2007 and let me tell you a lot has changed! This place went from an elegant gem in NYC to the likes of a dive bar. Two stars because SOME of the food is actually good. And when I say some I mean some dishes are a complete miss and could have just as easily been cooked by your teenage son. The brunch still seems to be a hit here my broccoli was rotten! The service is poor. I have to commend the manager for trying so hard in what seems like a dysfunctional group of staffers. You know when you get the feeling that a bar usually has to deal with a lot of belligerent drunks because the waiting/bar staff has become so cold and defensive? Well that's how I felt at the seemingly nice dine in restaurant. The bartender actually claimed I drank an extra glass of wine and tried to charge me for it! then changed his story three times when trying to explain why I had to pay for it and somehow I still was the guilty one. Then he charged me 17 dollars extra for my meal, ringing up my steak and lobster mashed potatoes as Lobster! When I question him twice about why the waiter had told me my meal would only be 28 bucks and why he was charging me 45 he defensively brushed me off saying "you have to take that up with the waiter". When leaving the restaurant feeling deceived and cheated I decided to call and secretly find out the true price of my meal...only to find out that he had cheated me out of 17 bucks. The manager did compensate me for my troubles and apologize but this was just nonstop mess! And...After I confided in the bartender about how my broccoli tasted rotten and how he should just suggest something to whoever buys the broccoli and how I did not want to complain or tell the manager bc he seemed to be stressed out, the bartender used that against me and told the manger I complained in order to back up his lie about how I drunk an extra glass of wine! Did I mention I took friends here from New Orleans and they told me it was the most unappetizing salmon they had ever tasted! How embarrassing.

I can't believe that food can be this bad. Especially with all the good press this place has received. I have been living in New York for 9 years, and it was the single worst meal I have had here. The server was nice and the decor is acceptable, but there is no shot I would go back.
