We had a delicious kosher meal here and they were kind enough to let us linger for a while afterward. Both soups were delicious as was the ahi tuna nachos. The star was the plain cheesecake...but there was nothing plain about it. I'd eat here again.

We hosted a Sheva Brachot here and enjoyed the food, service, and the care MMFF took in making it lively and lovely. We also hosted a large brunch and found the same. When it is crowded some of the tables can be really noisy. Reservations are a big help, otherwise wait can be long.

Once I got there there was a 35 min wait. I waited with a friend got seated, then waited 5 mins for menus. The food would've been more enjoyable if the place wasn't so packed. I suggest calling and making sure it's not to crowded before going.

Great good, amazing service, dirty dishes. They probably just have a bad dishwasher or something. Either way, would definitely come here again

While we were expecting seasonally long lines, there weren't and we were given a table immediately. My wife and I started with soup which we had to send back for reheating but was very tasty. For a main dish my wife ordered Halibut which she said was very good. I ordered grilled tuna, medium rare, and it was PERFECT!!! Red... More

MY MOST FAVORITE FOOD This used to be a kosher-specialty restaurant in Mid-town that excelled at desserts and fish dishes. It moved up north to 72nd Street a few years ago. The new headquarters lack some of the shine of the mid-town place, but the desserts and breakfasts are fine. In fact, the cakes, cookies etc are sinfully good. We... More

I ate here tonight with three friends. Since it's Passover the restaurant raised its prices substantially, which I had expected. So we paid $240 for the four of us. What I had not expected was that they also reduced the size of the food portion. I ordered eggplant rollatini, and the portion was two small, thin slices of eggplant with... More

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
