I've been to this restaurant on several different occasions over the past few years and I would defy anyone to find a better New York Strip Steak anywhere in Manhattan. The steaks are always a prime cut and cooked to perfection. Flawless!

We dined here a couple of times during our recent trip to NYC, we were both impressed with the food I particularly liked the pulled pork burger. We had a couple of drinks on the roof top bar, not really our scene and a bit...More

I took my daughter hear for dinner and we were disappointed. The wait staff was nice but they kept messing up the order. They didn't get our appetizers out, forgot the salad, and even messed up their signature "frickle" twice. I don't normally a give...More

I think they didn't like visitors. They were rude, they didn´t want us to be there i can tell. We had our bags and they made us faces when they see them. Plus, food was awful.

We have been here on every trip we've made to NY recently. Would still recommend it but...It seems to get darker every time we visit. The burgers were just OK, and not absolutely convinced that some of the variants offered are not the same thing,...More

Fun place and great staff. The bartenders were very nice and Caroline was fantastic but lets be honest, a burger was $25 dollars without a side. Really enjoyed, good food but like most things in Manhattan was well over priced.

We went for a meal here on our last night of weekemd in New York - it's attached to the hotel Affinia Shelburn so can get quite busy with guests at the bar. It's primarily a burger and steak place and the food is excellent...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
