We went as a family of four. The food and service were fantastic. They were flexible with the menu to accommodate my 7 year old daughter. Lovely evening! Will most likely return before we leave NYC.

I didn't notice a children's menu. They seem very nice and I noticed one couple had a baby with them. You could always share a pizza or other food.
