After sitting in wobbly seats, sipping water out of dirty glasses, amidst loud noises emanating from all sides of the restaurant, 45 minutes later our meals were served. 5 of the 6 meals, that is. Upon inquiring about it they said they were "working" on it. The 6th meal arrived 10 minutes later. My husband and I ordered the beet salad which was the most ordinary and bland salad I've ever had. Totally not acceptable for a restaurant of this caliber. The main dishes were actually quite good. But the zoo-like atmosphere which we had to endure put a sour taste in our mouths.

I must admit that I was fairly apprehensive because the last "kosher" restaurant I went to in nyc was miserable. I got the portab. mushroom salad, La Surprise steak, and chocolate cake/ice cream desert. All were very good. I was especially impressed with the desert given that it did not contain any dairy. I will be going back.

Food took almost an hour to arrive, which we thought was because one son asked for a steak to be well done - but it arrived rare anyway, and had to be sent back. All our entrees were bland. Waiter ignored us - I had to get up in search of a knife myself. The noise level was oppressive. We skipped dessert just because we couldn't wait to get out. Don't eat here unless you have to because you only eat kosher.

We reserved for Thurs. evening. Table was wobbly chairs were wobbly. Tables were placed so tightly together that we could also hear our neighbors' complaints. Veal chop portions were small, the vegetables served with it were not only overcooked, but scraps from the bottom of the pot. Service was non-existent, and the noise was so loud that conversation was impossible. After several visits, each progressively worse, we will not go again.

I've eaten here a handful of times and always enjoyed it. Steaks are cooked to perfection (I like mine exceedingly rare, and the chefs here aren't afraid to let it bleed) and the french fries are crispy and delicious. They have a nice cocktail menu, attentive and pleasant service, and it's usually never so crowded that you have to wait for a table. Also, it's Kosher, so a good place to bring friends who are Jewish and observant. It's pricy, but worth it to treat yourself every now and then

The roasted chicken was just mediocre - not worth the price. The other people in our party got steak and were pretty happy with it although the portions were pretty small. My favorite part of the meal was the salad.

Sorry, I found this restaurant at the end of December rather by chance because I was attracted from the Time Square area by the neon light coming from the Cuban restaurant at the other side of the street. The classic styled display-counter filled up with fresh meat seen through the window seduced me to go inside this "brown" and cosy restaurant. The "Steak aux poivres" was really wonderful, even better than my expectation, and the french (Belgian!) fries were just perfect. Somewhat later, at the table next to me, somebody was eating lamb : two huge bones from the underpart of the leg, matched together in a big bowl with brown onion-sauce (1-person-portion!), were laughing to me... Can you imagine : being two weeks only in a city with 25.000 eateries AND going on two successive days to the same restaurant !? I did it, ... and I am not ashamed. I was on my own, thus very concentrated on the food and the delicious Merlot housewine that I drunk with it. The service was very correct and I enjoyed highly the familiar ambiance of the house.
