From the outside, the restaurant seemed an affordable and appetizing place. However, once seated we had to wait a while for service and had to ask for the bread after realizing it was gratis. Then the food took a very long time and we only saw the waiter when he took our order and when he delivered the check. I don't think I will return as there are a lot of options in the area.

The waiter asked us too many times for our food order, without asking for the drink order. I finally had to call him over for a glass of wine and he ran away without asking anyone else if they wanted somehting. He seemed rushed to put in the food order. Bread plates were asked for and forgotten. The restaurant was not even full and the service just seemed off.

Burnt coffee, poached eggs with no yokes, brown looking salmon, and water that smells like it came from the spigot outside.

A friend & I made our way down to Chelsea after a movie for a bite to eat. She had been to this bistro on previous occasions but this was my first visit. Loved the liveliness of this restaurant. The place was very full but we were seated within a couple of minutes. Our waiter was very attentive but not overbearing & pestering, which I hate. He was very knowledgeable about the wine list and gave great suggestions. We had the steak tartar & the beet salad, both delicious. For the main course I had the duck. I have had better, but it was still great and my friend had the lamb, which was fantastic. The atmosphere is great. If your looking for a quiet, demure place to eat don't go here. It packed, jumping with lively conversations and loud. I loved it. I will definitely go back. People who complain that this place is too small and too loud?? Your in NYC. Stop whining. Some people just have a need to complain. Before you even get to the restaurant you can hear the noise so don't go in if you have an aversion to liveliness.

Went for Brunch yesterday with a few very laid back + undemanding friends. The service was basically non-existant for long stretches of time. The place was not at all busy and they appeared to be pretty well-staffed- al of whom seemed more interested in hanging out together and 'performing' at the bar.

I visited NY from Palm Beach recently. The very best Creme Brullee! We had the Seafood St Jacques risotto and the spinach and licked our plates! My chef's hat off to the chef!

I have been to this place numerous times and can finally write the review it deserves. Firstly the staff is very chatty and seem to generally try to do a good job. Unfortunately, the food takes awhilebut it is pretty good.. We have been ignored so many times. Water glasses go empty, wine glasses go empty which is nothing compared to the noise. This is seriously one of the loudest restaurants in NY. It reminds me of America (on 17th st which was filled with kids) but these are adults. I am a skinny guy but still had two people about 6 inches from me on both sides. The place is too loud. If they removed two tables, that might help, but that will never be the case. The only thing that I could slightly recommend is the food but not worth going out of your way for. Wear your earplugs, bathe before you go because people will be right on top of you.
