A very romantic setting for both myself and my girlfriend. We enjoyed our meals especially the house smoked rack of pork. It was well worth seeking out for the restaurant week menu. We look forward to going back in the near future.

Another one of the establishments I visted during this Restaurant Week. I have been here before, but this was not as good as the last time. To start, it is a very nice looking place, although the front bar area can be very tight if it is crowded, which most of the time it is not packed as it was this week. The room is very elegant, and very romantic, so if you are looking for a romantic setting this might be your place. The food this time was not great, it was good, and at $35 a good value, but at the regular prices it might be a little of a let down. We had a quite a variety of orders at our table of 10, and the one that stood out was the fish of the day which was a Haq (not sure if that is correct) I am not a fish lover, but all of those who had it said it was very good. My slow roasted pork was very good, but it reminded me of simply something I might have at a family dinner at home. The service was good, nothing special, but nothing poor either. Overall, I wasn't overly impressed, but it didn't put me off either. For a special occasion there are better places in terms of food and serivce, but this place can be right up there in terms of ambiance. For say $120 for a couple you probably won't be disappointed, but closer to $200 you might be. Check the menu, any specials, or special prices they may be running. If they are on the lower side try it and you'll be happy, or just give it a shot and you might find it to be totally your taste.

Dinner was good. Lot great. It was not as romantic as I remebered. It was a little noisy and crowded. Maybe because of the $35. dinner specials they are running. Its fairly priced at $35 but no way for the normal $75 price fixed.I think $13. for vodka and $4.00 for a cup of coffee is absurd. Manhattan is expensive, I realize but I have enought of getting taken. If the dining experience was outstanding like a Jean George thats one thing but One if by Land is just another nice restaurant. You can do just as well staying local and saving a lot of money. If I am spending $75 I expect to have an extraordinary exoerience At the very least a decent hot cup of coffee which by the way was lacking.

I must agree with the reviews that this place is number one when it comes to being a romantic place. My boyfriend took me there for my Birthday over the weekend. The food is delicicious! I had the Wellington steak. The presentation of the dishes in overall were brealthtaking. They were not overwhelmed with decor. It was elegantly done, just perfectly. The servers were really attentive and very friendly. The Co-owner Maria, was absoulty a sweet heart. She made the experience a night to remember. From the moment we walked in she made us feel right at room. Throughout the night she stopped by our table about three times, assuring that all was to our expectations. Indeed a friendly and plesant person. Treated us with the utmost respect. I definetly enjoyed my birthday dinner. My boyfriend did excellent in picking out this place. I will definetly will come back to this place for the serves and the food. It was a pleasure having such a great romsntic experience. An advise to those seeking a romantic place, don't look elsewhere One is by Land Two is by Sea is the place for you and your significant other. Trust me this is a really nice place. = )

I surprised my husband by taking him to here for his 50th birthday. Loaded with ambiance, this location is truly one of the most romantic restaurants in the city. Each table has a taper candle and a vase of roses. The servers were very attentive, pleasant and made us feel like we were the only two people there. We ordered the tasting menu with wine pairing, which spanned over a three hour period. Each course was nothing less than excellent, and they paired with a different wine. My only negative comment was for $150 a person, coffee should have been included. You must visit this restaurant if you enjoy fine food and wine and romance. Be prepared though, our tab for two was $385 with tax and gratuities.

A truly romantic restaurant, coupled with a truly delicious meal. Very pricey, but perfect for special occassions. The beef wellington and the monkfish were both very tasty. I would reccommend to anyone looking for a romantic place to bring that special someone!
