It is unfortunately one of those places where the staff try to make you feel like you don't belong there. The food was good but nothing groundbreaking. I wasn't especially blown away by my $16 cocktail either. Atmosphere was tragically hip but got sexier when they lowered the lights and I'd had a few drinks. I had a good time but I wouldn't make a point of returning.

For my money the arches are proffered. I feel like I've been ripped off. And The worst thing I ate there was a dish ripped off from the Markham (long gone but not forgotten). A completely unsatisfying version of the fried artichokes (my all time fave), my god are these guy's full of it. If your going to copy at least know what your doing... Other than that and the ugly room it's a pretty forgettable time.

Tonight's dinner started with the waitress asking us about water: sparkling or still Then we got the Voss water (2 bottles for 4 people) and that cost $16. We did not ask for that! Entrees arrived almost an hour after they were ordered. Olive oil and Bread was their treat but there was hardly any oil and the bread was at least a day old. Skirt Steak was greasy and hard. And a huge bill to boot. It was a mistake.

We head to Thor for brunch almost every other Sunday. It's great and such a relief from some of the other restaurants that serve brunch in the neighborhood. The food is plentiful, the drinks are strong but tasty, and the condiment tray is the most adorable thing I have ever seen. They serve a tray of tiny little individual serving condiment bottles. The waiters were attentive but not overly so. They refilled our drinks quickly and were friendly. We never waited too long for anything or were bothered. I really haven't experienced anything akin to the negative experiences listed in the past reviews. We truly enjoy brunch at Thor.

Despite the negative reviews I thought the food was really good. The apps were a fried artichoke salad and butternut squash ravioli and the mains we had were the lamb shank and the halibut which was especially delicious. I was quite surprised.

The exterior of the hotel/restaurant is sexy and sleek, BUT ENJOY IT FROM THE OUTSIDE BECAUSE THERE IS NO REASON TO GO INSIDE! The host was rude and helpless. We had a drink at the bar 1st then we told the host we're going to sit ourselves b/c besides 1 table, the entire dining area was open. And rudely he says "wait 1 sec" but then cont to haggle with bartender about something. So we just sat ourselves anyway. Idiot. Then the service was pretty unattentive and like I said, only 2 tables! Also the food was not impressive. Dont bother with the tuna tartare - nothing special, watery cucumber overpowered the tuna and made it bland. And the halibut entree was overcooked. So for the cost... dont bother!!

So here's the deal; We had reservations for Anthos but a glitch prevented us from going. I live in the LES, but don' care much for the restaurants in my hood [call me a snob, its ok]. Having to think fast, THOR came to mind. Having heard lots of negatives, I wasn't expecting much. Boy, was I wrong. The Restaurant is off the lobby in a really cool, sleek space. A great tasting olive oil for bread with nice olives was for starters. An appetizer of heirloom tomatoes with fresh mozzarella was excellent as was buttermilk chicken with a delightful peanut sauce. Mains were a great Angus burger and a huge bowl of mussels in a curry tomato and coconut milk broth with great french fries. A closer of a homemade cheesecake that sat on a graham cracker crust with berry compote ended a great meal. I entered THOR disappointed in not being able to keep my original reservation but left a very, very happy satisfied fellow !
