Ate there this past week and was very disappointed with the service. The waitress was very inexperienced and the manager was not so nice to the help. The food was okay but was ruined by the lack of coordination and people skills from the staff. The meal was tense. The price was okay.

Ate there about a week ago and had a very uncomfortable time. I sat on the ground floor and the waitress was very argumentive and demeaning to her other co-workers. Although the food was good , the atomosphere was tense!

Three of us went to the Hourglass on Sunday after seeing a matinee. We each had the pre-theater dinner which included a phyllo appetizer, salad, entree, dessert and coffee all for $19.95. Two of us ordered the grilled shrimp, scallop, portabello mushroom, onion and green pepper skewer. It came with mashed potatoes and smow peas. The third person in our group ordered the salmon which came with mashed potatoes and broccoli. We all ordered the chocalate mousse cake for dessert. We also shared a bottle of a very nice chardonay from Chile which was priced at only $16.95. The portions were very generous. The food was excellent. Service was very attentive. We will definitely return.

We ate here recently (8/9/07). The Delmonico cold in the middle and chewy: Sea Bass was slimy. Salmon overcooked. Broccoli undercooked and chewy. The bread was good. So-so wine list. It was our waitress's first night, so I'll give her a pass on a few things. However, the place is charming. I'm surprised at the high marks. Perhaps the cook had an off night.

Went on a Wed after matinee - owner himself seated us - first table we said was a little tight and he immediately gave us a larger table. Service was impeccable, food /price - fantastic, I had softshell crabs and my friend had pork chops so tender they melted in your mouth . Made a fabulous martini - will definitly be returning!

Tried this place after reading about it on your web site. Although very small, had no trouble getting a nice table upstairs by a window without a reservation on a Saturday afternoon after a matinee. Although I imagine that would have been difficult later in the day. Sea bass, filet of sole, and baby lamb were perfectly cooked and fabulous. Free spinach appetizer was a nice touch. Service was fast and friendly. Bathroom could use an upgrade but was clean.

The wk. before Easter '07, 6 of us ate here & LOVED IT! A nice bartender in the Theater dist. suggested it based on our needsf for something not touristy. The menu had LOTS of specials for $20/less which all included 1 app. - stuffed phylo, 1 big salad, entree & dessert & coffee. The filet was so big! No one was unhappy. The upstairs seats 18 and there were 10 of us (2 parties) and felt comfortable in what was once a home. Our server is the SIL of the owner - who gave us cheek kisses on the way out. It was the best meal in NYC we had the entire trip. Head down Restaurant Row and it's on the right. Wine is reasonable too. We will go back again.
