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.

Utterly forgettable. Some of the most poor service I've ever received in Chelsea - service in Paris is better and that's saying something - food is decent but nothing special. Prices are not worth the quality and taste of the food. Go somewhere else.

Having walked out of a nearby restaurant due to a very loud and obnoxious group we decided to eat here, and I was glad we did. Thoroughly enjoyed my mussels & frites, and my friend enjoyed her steak frites. The service was good, but we went early. They definately cram in those tables and I can see it being very uncomfortable when it is crowded, and noisey as well, so I will not be going there primetime, for sure.

I haven't here in a while. Food is still good, but they added additional tables to cramp in more customers. At one point we had other diners sitting 6 INCHES to our right and left. Makes it a very unpleasant and closterphobic. Not worth it unless you like hearing other people's conversation and having no privacy.

Excellent quality,well prepared tasty food. FRESH,FRESH FRESH!! no wonder it is crowded, Every one that I take there returns with others-no wonder I need a reservation. Best well priced wine list . Do not go by me try it for yourself.

Me and my lover went there last night to celebrate our anniversary. For a cold Wednesday evening it was rather unexpectedly bustling. The seating is cramped together and the noise level uninviting. We opted to come back when it cleared out. Upon doing so we found our waiter to be unfriendly. The food was just okay. It could be a nice romantic place to dine if the attitude lessened along with the loud music.

I have eaten here several times but always at an early hour. At 8:00 on a Saturday night it was so noisy that it was impossible to carry on a civilized conversation. Other diners have to be excused but the level of "music" was excruciating. It sounded raucous, dominated by banging drums, positively hostile. Now that ambient smoke has been vanquished we should take up the cause of protecting unwary young employees whose eardrums are threatened by this savage level of mayhem.
