    Fabulous--not

    In our ongoing quest to find a decent place to eat around Lincoln Center, my husband and I went here for dinner after a recent performance. The decor is, to say the least, minimal. The food was okay, but nothing memorable enough to make us go back. Did I say ongoing? Well, we will be going on to another place for yet another try. Besides Picholine there must be something!!

    Local Gem

    This is one of my favorite New York restaurants. I usually eat here once a month - sometimes at the bar - one or two courses with a glass of wine recommended by the knowledgeable bartender. I recently brough my parents here and we did the tasting menu with wine pairings. Just fantastic. I always order the brook trout - no matter what the preparation, it is always sublime. The menu changes regularly but they always keep the trout and the lobster bolognese and other good dishes on it. Two recent additions, a short rib & beet green pierogi was fantastic, and a dessert - oloroso sherry custard tart (to be enjoyed with a glass of sherry) - try it - even if you're skeptical.

    All around great place

    I went here with my boyfriend for our anniversary and had a great meal. Many other restaurants of Telepan's caliber charge at least $20 more per person. I thought the menu was creative and delicious and would highly recommend it.

    What a fabulous dining experience!

    First of all, I must say this was the restaurant upper westside has been waiting for! Chef Bill Telepan has been my favorite since Judson Grill and he outdid himself again, now at his own 'Telepan'. I loved the warm and beautiful brownstone setting atmosphere with very professional and knowledgable staff along with an exceptionally composed wine list of all price ranges including some hard to find, unique vintage bottles. My date who is an vintage wine afficionado was particularly impressed with the wine list. But most of all, I absolutely fell in love with Bill's specialties house smoked brook trout, lobster bolognese and roasted organic chicken. The desserts were just as heavenly... crunchy peanut butter & milk chocolate gianduja and spiced apple sauce cake just melted in my mouth! My friend had 5 course tasting menu at $69.00 was an exceptional value. What a fabulous dining experience!!

    Disappointment

    Major disappointment, recommended by a foodie friend. First horror was the smell of the foyer as I entered the restaurant. I arrived early, before my friends, directed to wait at bar. The bartender never acknowledged me, as my husband and friends began to arrive we congregated at the bar. none of us were asked if we'd like a drink. We sit down, order, service was just ok, but the food was not good. My shrimp were overcooked and tough, tasteless. Lobster pasta was barely ok, Lobster was cooked well, the pasta was mush..so much for al dente. My duck was as dry as the Mojave, sliced before letting it rest, tasted like liver. The dessert inedible.

    Great Brunch!

    We once had a great dinner here, but recently found out they served brunch. So tried it for brunch with my in-laws to celebrate my husband's b-day and we all had such an amazing meal! Everyone at the table was blow away. We've returned for brunch 3 times since!

    Telepan Schmelepan

    I always judge a restaurant by the silence at our table. When my husband and I are blown away by a dish, we don't speak. Let's just say conversation flowed on Saturday night. We were presented with an amuse bouche- a mini cheese popover- a cold salmon salad- and a parsley soup. Cold food wasn't cold and hot food wasn't hot. We started with shrimp poppers- flavorless and poached egg and frisee (greasy and limp)- did we make bad choices? Followed by cauliflower and bean dish and fish stew. Ok the cauliflower would have been magnificent if it was hot. The soup was devoid of any shrimp or scallops. My main course was the steak- deliciously seared and the potatoes were crispy - Hubby had the pork- the smoke flavor killed what should have been a delicious entree. The service was rushed but polite- we didn't feel comfortable- something was off. We still can't figure out what it is. Dessert is where they made up for the rest of the uninspired meal. I could eat the banana tart every day and never get tired of it. Carmelized banana, a little ice cream and a warm tart. Damm that was good! We've spent less and we've spent more for a wonderful meal. Not worth the 175.00 price tag. We had one drink each and coffee and tea with the 4 course menu.
