    Decent food, poor service

    Food wasn't bad, service was non-existant. Requests such as "please hold the cheese on my salad" and "can I have some sugar with my coffee" were met with eye rolls and an attitude. Waiter was non-existant after we ordered, didn't check on us once and the busboy dropped off/picked up the bill. The place is pretty, has some potential but theres thousands of better spots in NYC.

    Raw chicken, burnt pancakes.

    If you like raw chicken and burned pancakes for brunch, this is the place to come. As I was focused on my chicken paillard over salad and trying to find a piece cooked enough to eat, I hardly noticed my husband who was trying to figure out how to cut his pancake which was so overcooked, he couldn't get his fork out of it. Honestly, I thought it was a joke. His pancakes were so burnt and hard, they could have been part of a plastic food display. Our friend enjoyed his eggs. I guess that's the thing to order here. We were not asked to pay for our brunch....since we couldn't eat it. Our waiter, a nice man, was most kind and apologetic but the hostess was somewhat annoyed that we were not willing to accept another try at the chef's offerings. Once was enough!

    Truly uninspired

    Just a place to eat. Nothing special. Probably a better bar or hang out. Breakfast was overpriced and boring. This is NY, expect better if you're paying these prices.

    Could use improvements

    I was expecting a little more in terms of decor, but overall its a nice ambiance. The service was decent, and I like the fact that they gave me the option of eating upstairs (where it was quieter). I had the steak tartare, which would have been better had the chef not gone overboard with the hot sauce. I'm a spicy food lover, but this was far too much spice and completely overpowered the delicate flavor of the meat. The already cracked quail egg on top was a nice touch though.

    Decent Place

    This restaurant is decent for the buck you pay. I had the steak frites with a shrimp cocktail as an app. Shrimp a little bit mushy, but the steak was excellent. For $29 the steak is worthwhile, as you are going to pay atleast this much or more anywhere. Service was good, maybe because it wasn't too busy. I don't know. Overall a good experience, with this being my first time in NYC.

    Not worth it for lunch

    The restaurant looks great, and the menu looks interesting, but the service was very poor. We waited over an hour for our main course. We ordered the croque monsieur, which was nothing like a traditional croque monsieur, but rather like a regular grilled cheese. The waiter had no idea about the menu, either, and disappeared from the time he took our order until he handed us the bill. Great potential, but not worth it.

    Disappointed

    Unimpressed by poor, overpriced food and equally poor service. Wont be returning.
