I took my team here for a business dinner. We had some great appetizers including the grilled octopus which was really good. We ordered an additional item which never came so that was disappointing. Great wine selections but we poured ourselves. We ordered two branzinos to share at the table and it was delicate and flavorful but it took forever... More

Had a taste of this wonderful ambiance at the bar! The service was great and the Bartender very pleasant. Tried the Hummus and it was delicious. Can't wait to be back and have a full meal. Trendy and good ambiance.

The grilled Chilean sea bass souvlaki with a roasted red pepper sauce and the roasted beets marinated with citrus olive oil were excellent appetizers. (The garlic almond puree is very garlic-y). The... More

I've eaten at the best restaurants and the service and food are not the best. The food was like warm and the server didn't even seem to care. Not worth the money...I should've gone to Smith and Wollensky down the block.

Winelist was also quite good. It was however very busy in the restaurant with people waiting for a table. If you get a table in... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
