    Great addition to Yorkville

    Our server was attentive and enthusiastic, drinks were well made, and the food was quite good, especially my fried chicken and my son's pan seared prime strip loin. I will admit, however that the bread-rolls, unevenly heated and seemingly store-bought, we

    Early Bird Special?

    Tried to make reservations on Tuesday, for Saturday, told only 5:30 (time restaurant opens) was available. It was President's weekend and Valentine's Day, so we gave them one. However, as we learned later through observation, I think they just wanted to

    Everything but the food is great

    A really beautiful place with attentive staff but my veal meat loaf tasted exactly like what you would get in a Greek coffee shop. Plus, the waitress suggested a side because the mashed sweet potatoes that came with it was more of a garnish than a side. S

    Amazing addition to the UES!

    Until now, there hasn't been a place on the UES that my girlfriends and I can go to have a nice glass of wine but also have fun on a Saturday night. I've eaten dinner here and have come just for drinks and both have been great. The gnocchi, smoked white f

    Loved it! Went with a few girlfriends of mine and we sat at the bar. The bartender was so nice! We ordered the fried sweet potatoes, the white fish salad with caviar, the gnocchi (amazing!!) and the ribs. Everything was so delicious. Great vibe, great

    just go for drinks

    Until the kitchen finds it's way. Right now it's just overpriced, themeless new American. Nothing stands out on the menu except for the extraordinary cost of a NY strip steak ($52). The renovated space is excellent but food doesn't live up; saying it's
