We have been going out with the same group for New Years Eve for a few years now, always to highly recommended restaurants, usually featuring a band and a prix fixe menu. This was, by far, one of worst experiences we have had yet (and one of the worst restaurant experiences I have had in my homw town of NYC in general). The food was, simply put, inedible and aptly described by one in my group as "no better than bad airplane food." The appetizer was unimaginitive, had no taste and, in at least two cases, made two in our party sick. The pasta course, which was the best part of the meal, was mediocre at best. The fish option for the main course was, simply put, repulsive and the beef option equal to bad banquet food.

Went last night after not having been for MANY years. Service was good and the place was only about 1/4 full at 7:30PM. Appetizers were the beet salad, the pea soup and the braised octopus. These were all just fair and oversalted. Main courses were the halibut (oversalted also), the steak and the snapper. Panecotta. The food was all just mediocre at best and not worth the money at all but a good place for a drink on your way to somewhere else.

I ate here on a Sunday night around 9pm. We got a table right at the window. Service was great in the sense they are attentive but leave you alone. We received a great wine recommendation when we had trouble deciding from their hundreds of available bottles. Started with the shrimp which was seasoned so well and just delicious. For entree, we had the lamb and the pork chop. Both were so good that even as we became full, we had to clear our plates (and help with each other's!). Dessert was the peach tart. A perfect evening of food. A little expensive yes, but food was the best I've had out in a long time and the atmosphere was perfect.

Went for Restaurant week and everything from the service to food were very good. A bit of an attitude from the person seating us but the service was superb otherwise. Will go again.

I had dinner here on a week night with a large group of friends. The service was quite good from start to finish, and they handled our big table well. I had the soup special, which was a yellow split pea. For an entree, I had the short ribs with chunks of bacon. Both were very, very good, with generous portions. So generous, that I could only take sample bites off other people's dessert plates. Thoroughly enjoyed the entire evening and I'll probably be back.

I am the type of person that loves exploring new food and flavors. I don't mind spending money for food when it is worth it. I was excited to go to Tribeca grill with 2 of my best friends and couldn't have been more pissed off when leaving. The beet salad was a joke. Everything was bland, including the pears which tasted like cold raw potatoes, the raisins which had seeds in them, and the light sprinkling of goat cheese which was so minimal you could barely taste it. I had the red snapper for dinner which is my favorite fish and i often order it out. The fish was extremely dry and bland, set over a bland couscous dish that offered NO compliment to the fish or any recognizable flavor. For desert our table shared 3 dishes: The vanilla panna cotta was so bad we couldn't even eat it it tasted like cold lard with no flavor. The chocolate tart was eatable but it had no jazz or excitement. The apricot tart was the ONLY thing that was enjoyable throughout the entire meal, and even that was mediocre at best when comparing it to the price and the hype of the restaurant. I've never spend so much money and been so angry about doing it.
