We visited Sardis on a Sat. night after the show, and ordered a Cobb salad which was very fresh and tasty. We also had a hamburger which was hard and flavorless. The dinner rolls were tough, also. My friend had the mandarin risotto (rice) pudding which sounded good, but the zest was overpowering and she could not eat it. I had the strawberry /cream/meringue dessert and it was to die for. While the service was excellent, I would not go back.

For atmosphere and tradition it's a nice change but overall not worth the price. The service was OK but they did have us waiting about 12 minutes after our scheduled reservation (it wasn't overly crowded either, as we went early in the evening). We had the caesar salad and steaks. The salad was just OK but the steaks were good and cooked to order. The dinner rolls were disappointing, they were like rocks. The waiters were nice and service was decent. Overall, with so many restaurants in the area, I don't think we'd be back any time soon.

On our third trip to NYC we once again ate at Sardis. Each time has just about perfect. At New York prices this restaurant gives you more value and service than any of the other highly rated restaurants that we have visited and at about one half the cost. I ordered the 10 once steak and it came out perfectly cooked, perfectly tender and with no liver taste as some restaurants try to serve you cheaper cuts of meat that taste like liver. Their bread served with dinner is to die for especially the seven grain bread. I had a desert that I'm not sure of the spelling, but it was something like Bocconne. It is a hard merenge with strawberries in it and this is the third time I've ordered it and each time it amazes my with it's suttle flavor and taste. What can I tell you I love it. This makes three times for Sardis, once for 21, once for Tavern on the Green, and once for The View. These are all supposed to be 5 $ sign restaurants and 5 * sign restaurants, but not all as nice as Sardis.

Admittedly, I cannot comment on the regular menu here, but we decided to stop in for dessert after seeing Phantom on a week night. We were seated right away, and the service was wonderful and friendly. Enjoyed looking around at the various charictures and trying to figure out who they were, it definately gave the place a unique atmosphere. The tiramsiu and chocolate mint chip profiteroles were both excellent. Would love to try their regular menu sometime.

The Ceasar salad in this restaurant is one of the best I have ever had. However, do not even think of ordering the crab cakes - they were fairly tasteless. I am a crabcake lover, but these were not very good.

A second trip after a number of years between did not change my memory of how much we liked this restaurant. We arrived for an 11pm dinner after the theatre and we were happy to find out that we could get appetizer sized meals at this late hour. Food was wonderful, but at this late hour service was a little slow. All in all we will make this one of our regular stops as we plan to visit NYC a number of times this year.

We visited Saturday evening, January 7th, 2006. We were seated promptly at 5pm leaving us plenty of time to eat with comfort and catch an 8pm show. We were a little concerned with the mix reviews but in the end we were quite delighted. We found the bar to be small and compact but at the same time enjoyable. Interesting conversation was had with strangers and fellow theater fans. The drinks were tasty and overpriced as in most Manhattan Restaurants ($8.50 Vodka & Tonic). The Restaurant is two floors. We were seated on the second floor which we found comfortable and the atmosphere lively. We found all the staff to be very attentive. As an appetizer I chose the cream of Mushroom with Chives Cr?me Fra?che ($7.50). For the entree I personally ate the Cannelloni au Gratin - A combination of Beef, Veal and Sweet Pork Sausage rolled in two French Crepe's with a Sherry Flavored Tomato Cream Meat Sauce ($24.75). The dish was tasty although heavy. On a return visit I would choose a different dish. Yes we plan on returning. My date raved about "both" the cesar salad which she chose as an appetizer and the Pan Roasted Maine Jumbo Sea Scallops with Leeks, Potato, Artichoke and Baby Shrimp in a Muscadet Wine and Shellfish Nage ($28.00) A must have for dessert is the warm Chocolate Cake with Melted Center,chocolate Ice Cream, Cr?me Anglaise and Dots of Chocolate Sauce.($9.50) If you think you are too full to order a dessert, dont sweat it. As the dessert portion is small, but then again I have a sweet tooth. May you venture out and have an enjoyable evening as we were fortunate to have. Happy New Year!
