    the establishment was very nice and was very comfortable and that was the best part, Service was awful food was rushed and was ok. A bottle of wine was bought for us prior to getting there as a gift from a friend. we didn't get the wine until we finished eating. And rushed out after a hour and 5 min

    Not a big fan of the new seasonal menu as far as food or drinks. Waitress was a little overbearing where she came to the table every 10 minutes and kept asking to take appetizer away while we were still eating. Felt like we were being rushed. I would still recommend based on prior visits however would only recommend when winter/spring menu is back in effect. Prior service has always been exceptional however this past time felt rushed. If this had been our first time at the restaurant I’m not sure I would go back.

    Service and food was good. I would’ve liked to have seen more choices on the menu such as a chicken dish. I can be picky. As far as a rooftop establishment there was no view to speak of. It should just be considered outdoor dining. However, I would still recommend.

    The littleneck clams were perfection. The linguini fra diavolo with mixed seafood was - well, mixed. Its sauce was wonderfully savory with fish stock and fennel, but the fish and shellfish was hard, overcooked, dry. I have higher expectations for a restaurant which positions itself as high end. And at this price point.

    The artisan cheese Plate app was more grapes and bread than cheese. Disappointing at the price. The Brussels sprout app was good but sparse. I ordered seafood fra diavolo for my main dish and that was good. My client ordered the pasta bolognese and I DARE the manager to call, what looked like cat food, bolognese. In fact, I dare the manager to eat it. Server was good, when he came by, but to be fair, it was busy due to a political fund raiser being held in the bar. I will not rush back. I used to love the place but they’ve declined.

    Waiter was trash. Didn't feel like serving outside anymore an made us wait for 20 mins as if we'd magically go away. Asked to be moved out of his session and our new waitress was terrified to serve us (not sure why) we just wanted someone to acknowledge us and just say someone will be right with you! Nope the guy was a tool, owner was nice enough to discount the meal but awful experience from such a high end resturant. Food was average.
