Great food and good people! Enjoyed the filet and creamed spinach. Cooked perfectly. Excellent wine selection and my starter martini was just the way I liked it. I would definitely go back when I am in New York.

Really mixed feelings about this place. Atmosphere is lovely. The serving staff are friendly, knowledgable and attentive. The whole experience though was let down by the food. My starter of scallops wrapped in bacon was over cooked, the bacon burnt black. My main was lobster...More
