Fantastic. It is like walking in to a Ralph Lauren print ad. Not only is it aesthetically appeasing, the food and drinks were fantastic. Great NYC vibe.

Stylish NYC old school waspy vibe, with exceptional (good looking) staff. Loved it apart from the noise level downstairs. Can’t wait to return and install myself at the bar for a lost afternoon.

We liked the restaurant and the ambiance but I thought the $33 margarita was a bit much. The waiter was clearly trying to sell that drink (and get more tip) because it was a "special". You need to disclose a $33 drink price - not everyone is on an expense account.

Beautiful atmosphere and attentive service. The room is large but still intimate, with seating arranged so that no table is on top of another. Noise level and dinner music are excellent. Food is good not great. The real value is in the room and ambiance. The classic wood decor and fragrant smells throughout the restaurant create a lush feel. Great dining experience

Of course, the atmosphere is very luxurious and attractive, much like being in a British men's club/library. The staff was courteous and professional. The food was excellent. It is worth it alone to go for the gruyere popovers. Everything we ordered was delicious.

It was a very pleasant experience. The staff is very accommodating and our server was wonderful.
The food was OK, nothing special and expensive. The dining room is very plush and warm but the
walking areas very tight. I would return and eat in the bar area.

It was an amazing experience. I made reservations for two. I arrived their with my date, they sat us right away. We were not rushed. They treated me and made me feel welcome throughout our night. I would recommend this place to anyone. Drinks and food were on point. Service was excellent. The staff greet you and make sure your taken care of. A+

Loved eating here even though I had a 5:30 reservation- still not sure how you get prime time. Trick is to go 45 mins early and sit at the bar to have a drink first. Didn’t know that

This place is amazing. I’ve been going at least once every year for the past 5 years, but this years I got a horrendous waiter; Carlos, S. I mistakenly ordered a $90 glass of wine, when I meant to order a bottle, so when I realized and ordered a bottle and told him to take the glass back he became so condescending and began rudely telling me the prices of everything I was ordering. I let it go because it was my birthday and, you know because he’s a waiter. The bill was $500 and I double the tax for the tip, so he would’ve gotten a nice tip, but Carlos, S didn’t get a nice tip...

Top notch restaurant!! Amazing service, food and ambiance. We had 10:30pm reservations and got there at 9pm. We were planning on having a few cocktails at the bar while waiting, however they were able to seat us by 9:30. So don’t be disappointed and go elsewhere because of a late reservation, you never know. We will definitely be back!! And..the olives warmed in a breaded appetizer at the bar..delish! :)

A return to 1950s elegance - a beautiful paneled room, fun art, amazing food - those popovers are fantastic. I would love to go there once a week and try everything on the menu. Perfection.
