I would recommend going at "off peak" hours. I went on a Friday night, waited a little over a hour..watched as "stars" were seated before me... but the wait and torture of watching the trendy scene was worth it all for the food. Yes, the burger is good.

I find the menu here a little limited, and the space can be quite cramped. But their blue cheese burger is to die for and worth the trip every time.

Had dinner here 2 nights ago. The food was very good but like some other reviewers said, it was a little over-salty. We got the pot of pickles which was a nice vinegary mix of pickled vegetables but it shouldnt have been $7 IMO. We got the roll mops which were fantastic, and the chicken liver toasts, which MELTED in your mouth. We heard the gnudi was a must-have and I agree it was excellent, although heavy on the salt. I had the special which was a roast 1/2 guinea hen with morels and it was tender, and juicy and yes, salty. We had the house beer which was good but I have a hard time getting down room temperature beer. The highlight was my friends burger. Normally I wont order a burger if there are more unusual things on the menu but let me tell you..the burger was the star. I am going to go back and have the burger again..It was SOOOOO GOOD. The shoestring fries are also nice and crispy and yep..you guessed it..salty!

Delicious, and I'm picky. I honestly don't understand the bad reviews. My friend and I shared the ricotta gnudi and it was one of the most delectable things I've ever put in my mouth. So fresh and delicate. I never wanted it to end. Broccoli rabe and antipasti plate (proscuitto, buffalo mozzarella, fennel, cauliflower, more) also absolutely amazing. They actually made fennel taste good. Every bite was heaven.

Even on a weeknight, there's a pretty long wait, but it's fun to hang out in the bar area with drinks. The food is really good, nothing fancy. The gnudi are amazing, and the food isn't as salty as everyone claimed.

Having just been there and now reading the reviews, I am going to agree with most of the more recent assessments. Good burger, yes, totally limited menu, uh huh, cramped space, check, fries a total pain the rear to eat, check check...and the statement that it was a fraud perpetrated by NY Magazine? Hilarious...and again, I am inclined to agree. It was a decent lunch but not deserved of the hype...or the slightly higher than average pub prices (spare me the "gastropub" explanation. I cannot imagine what this place is like when crowded. (Shudders.)

and i like salt! this place didn't live up to the hype at all. i feel like its a big hoax orchestrated by NY magazine. the food wasn't good, it was cramped and not in a fun convivial way either. sjtu b/c a few celebs have been spotted there doesn't make it worth it. the food was literally drenched in salt and cumbersome to eat. never again.
