I've been here numerous times and every visit is a pleasure. They are always accommodating, have attentive service, and an absolutely charming atmosphere. The food is delicious- especially the scallops, and my vegetarian friends love their filo creation. I've never had a bad meal here, and have sampled breakfast, lunch and dinner. Truly worth a visit!

I have to say, I was very disappointed with the food. Nothing we ate had much flavor at all. My husband and I never add salt to our meals, but we were forced to sprinkle some on just to get a little taste in our mouths. I would not recommend stopping here for a meal. Over priced, untasty, and a rip off for the amount of tasteless food you even receive.

Any place that starts with "The" usually gets at least one shot from me and and my friends because it always sounds important. We liked the food and the hip vibe that you expect in this area. If you want to be cool and get a decent meal, try it!

We had a great dinner with friends last night at this amazing restaurant. I had the cod - which was stunning, and the filo chocolate pie - amazing. The dining rooms are beautiful, candlelit and perfectly decorated for the holidays - the 3 working fireplaces were icing on the cake. The wine list is interesting and very affordable, not what you expect in this neighborhood. The host and waitress were so gracious even though the place was packed.

This restaurant is a rare gem in this city. The food is consistantly delicious (try mussels, duck pasta, and scallops!) the staff are friendly and knowledgable about the product, and the ambiance is the best! Its best on a weekday, as it's less crazy, but no matter what I always feel taken care of. Everyone I bring here ends up loving it and introducing it to their friends; so much so that the last time I was there I bumped into a friend! Highly recommended!

We had the best time at his quaint, charming unpretentious restaurant, We had several appetizers to start, each cooked to perfection, scallops moist and plump the sweet potato raviolis melt in the mouth. Entrees were fab, lamb, salmon out of this world. The spiced pumpkin bread pudding was amazing. Easily the most reasonably priced and unique restaurant on W4th Street. We will be back soon.

My wife and I are fortunate to have two anniversaries to celebrate (our ceremony and reception were months apart) - it gives us an excuse to sample some of the more pricey and romantic restaurants. This year both places we tried were very long on atmosphere and presentation, but the food turned out to be disappointing. I'll focus on The Place since we just went there. First a few positive notes. We arrived and were greeted by the very friendly and helpful staff. The fireplaces, lanterns, stone walls and wood beam ceiling make for great atmosphere. The dinner ended on a high note with an excellent piece of warmed triple-chocolate cake with homemade coffee ice cream. Everything inbetween the greeting and the cake was a big disappointment, and extremely overpriced. A $14 sauteed mushroom appetizer on roasted polenta cakes had absolutely nothing to recommend it - flavor, texture, presentation or anything else. One main dish was a duck plate with the duck prepared three different ways, on a bird's nest of potato sticks and julienned vegetables. Sounds nice, doesn't it? There were duck dumplings that were not bad; three tiny pieces of virtually raw duck breast; and a shank that was small and fatty. The "bird's nest" was a bit overcooked, and the vegetables were nothing to write home about. We sent back the raw duck pieces to be introduced to a flame; they came back tasting like sirloin. The other dish was a baked cod ($24 I think) on a base that had a half dozen intriguing ingredients. But the end result was basically a piece of cod on some diced potatoes, again with no special spicing or flavoring to make you sit up and take notice. I'm pretty certain I could do better at home. What got me actually ticked off was that we wanted to order champagne, and the only selections were a bottle of ordinary Prosecco for $36, the over-advertised but otherwise unexceptional Veuve Cliquot for $79 (it's not even worth the $40+ they get for it in liquor stores) and a NY State champagne for $72. Ridiculous and insulting IMHO. Pretty sure we won't go back to The Place. They could drop their prices by 30% across the board and still be overpriced for the quality of the cuisine.
