    Packed and chaotic!

    The food was good. Service was good, once we were seated. It was so chaotic but if you are patient it is a fun and interesting experience.

    I love this place!

    I have been here 4 times, and every time has been amazing. The food is superb, the desserts are out of this world (the chocolate cake was to die for). Try the signature drink - the tao-tini. I suggested this place for a bridal shower, and now all the girls know me as the one with great taste and come to me for restaurant suggestions. The service is great, they give you time to enjoy your food, and there is no rush. They leave you alone, but are immediately available when you need anything. The decor is also beautiful. If you are with a group, try to get the table right in front of the buddah - it has a see through glass table that is over a marble bath filled with floating candles and rose petals.

    A good friend was in NY on his honeymoon - so I though I'd take him and his new wife to what's supposed to be one of the hottest places in town. I was a mistake. On a Tuesday night - after a long day at work - we were not seated until 10pm despite a 8.45pm reservation. It would seem that these guys are in the practice of completely overbooking their tables. The bar area - where countless others were enduring the same fate - was so packed we couldn?t even get a drink. People all around us were visibly upset and many were leaving. By the time we were seated the food was slightly above average (which could have been a result of how hungry we were), the service average. Go for a drink (if you don?t mind the crowds) - but the dinner is truly not worth the disarray.

    Our party of 5 was seated at a table designed for 4 at 11 PM, despite having a 9:15 PM reservation. The food was ok...do NOT recommend the sushi. One of the managers ordered complimentary appetizers for our table, but when they arrived even she could not tell us what they were. This is the loudest restaurant I have ever been at. It is very trendy and stylish, but more of dance club environment (LOUD techno music playing all night). We could not have any dinner conversation and our waiter could not hear our requests. By the time we left (well after 12 AM) it was so crowded we could not get down the stairs to get outside...wall to wall people!

    The place was fun, very loud, the sea bass is amazing...the food was overall excellent. The waitstaff was quick, pleasant and efficient, the front desk needs some work though, rude and snooty... Would go again in a heart beat!

    Mabey too hip to get good service

    We found the experience and interior amazing but (and it was a big) but the staff at the front door and check-in table where rather rude and started the whole experience off on the the wrong foot, once it the place was fantastic, but the champagne @ $125 per bottle which only made up the tab of $500 for the three of us was warm and frankly you expect basics like this to be in order - maybe they're too popular.

    Good once

    Well, the service wasn't too bad. The food was okay, could have been what i ordered. If you have the cash to go back and try something different, so a little pricey but atmosphere was good, big buddha is pretty cool and saw kelly rippa and her husband there so got lucky first try.
