    A good neighborhood spot

    Love this place have been working in the area for five years and this is the best as far as value for your money and nice honest food. Highly recommend it!

    Bistro at its best

    The New York Times wrote about the owner of this place and not only does he sound like the kind of guy you want to be friends with, his restaurant is the kind of place you want to go and hangout with your friends at. The food is good, the service is friendly and the prices are reasonable. If fish is your thing try the sword fish! - and don"t forget dessert....

    Nothing special French

    The baby octopus were like rubber bands with little flavor. The canannolli beans they came with and the rest of the dish was very good. $8. The endive salad was very good $8. The Sauteed Monk Fish was lightly breaded, which it didn't need and made it heavier then was wanted on a hot summer night, but it was tasty. The side was wilted (overcooked) greens on mashed. $18 Pinwheeel of Sea Scallops on wilted (overcooked) greens, mashed and a beet couilis. $19. 4 wine by the glass choices, the cab was eh. The dessert was crepe suzzette, that was the best part of the meal. Unimpressive service and just nothing special when compared to our local French bistro.

    Sea Bass?

    This restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere combined with a delightful menu. Unfortunately, we felt rushed as the waitress stared at us the whole time. We got over that quickly when we were served our dessert wine and enjoyed mounds of chocolate. The main course was very tasty (even though there was only five clams in the clam pasta (sadface)). All and all we highly reccomend.

    Not recommended

    The food was not bad -- it was prepared in such a way that shows they are only catering to their eastern european cuisine, and have not adopted American standards of restaurant cuisine. The disappointing aspect of it is that the dishes cost so much you would think there was some quality involved, when there is merely a dearth. Hangar steak comes with mashed potatoes and . . . shoestring fries? No green vegetable, though. Yes, and the mashed seemed to be made with no butter. The waitstaff never asked how things were. I could go on.

    A truly strange dining encounter

    This is a review I would rather not write because I'd heard good things about this restaurant and I've never written a poor review before online. My friends and I, all New Yorkers, expected a nice meal at this restaurant but were disappointed by both the food and the service. The problems began when we didn't order wine and the hostess/waitress gave us a disapproving look, which continued for the length of our meal. Then, my order of pasta & sundried tomatoes with shittake mushrooms arrived sans mushrooms. The caesar salad was okay but the bread was hard, and the steamed asparagus overcooked--limp and pale. The $15 bowl of pasta, after all the fuss over the mushrooms, was nothing more than what any of us would prepare at home with a box of spaghetti and jar of Ragu. The atmosphere was nice enough, however, the bathroom was so-so.
