This bar was 1 block down from our hotel The Roger. We received a warm welcome immediately from the waiter/barman who was chatty and interested as to where we were from etc. We were 2 friends from UK who were revisiting new York after 15 years since our last visit. We tried cocktails and ate fabulously prepared food. We made... More

Fantastic food, fantastic service and a great night. We visited on New Years Eve and opted for a drinks and 3 course dinner menu. It was amazing. The steak was cooked to Perfection and the NY cheesecake was really good with cinnamon through the base. Drinks were also excellent and we were never waiting for top ups. If in NYC,... More

We were headed down 30th St intending to go to LaLisse (wonderful) when a fire in a fireplace caught my eye through a plate glass window. That's how we found Crooked Knife, which turned out to have delicious food in a charming atmosphere. We split a portobello sandwich and a roasted beet salad (both with goat cheese and ample for...

I was not very impressed with this place. The food and service were average. It was very loud (not great for conversation). We were there for brunch. If you don't do the bottomless brunch, it is not worth it.

We turned up without booking for a late(ish) dinner for two. Staff were very accommodating and there was a good feel to the whole place. Food and drink was served promptly, steak for me and salmon for my wife, and both of us were very pleased with our choices. We finished eating and decided to stay on for beers -... More

This was the first restaurant we ate whilst staying in New York, close to our Hotel in Manhattan (29 East 30th Street) Live music night, lots of atmosphere, food fantastic, both meals were a delight. Staff very friendly and helpful. Perhaps not for those on a romantic evening out, it was a little noisy!
