  • Andres YDinner is great. Bold and flavorful. Brunch is not that impressive.

    55555 by Andres Y

  • b.inkNo Alex Guarnaschelli sighting but it was still superb

    55555 by b.ink

  • Trae F.Great prix fixe lunch for $35. The chicken liver toasts are excellent and so was the salmon special.

    55555 by Trae F.

  • Emily JTwo words: vegan prix-fixe

    55555 by Emily J

  • Kathleen L.It was lovely to see the head and owner walking around

    55555 by Kathleen L.

  • Evelyn L.Came here for restaurant week winter 2017 and the service was horrendous. Both sad and shocked to experienced this. 😔

    22222 by Evelyn L.

  • Chris P.Decent pre-fixe for lunch. Cauliflower entree was unique and good. Skate wing was served pretty cold & needed a side dish to make it a meal. Loud. Not great for conversation.

    55555 by Chris P.

  • Roula H.I guess I did not have the same experience as others. The veal bacon was 95% pure fat. The tuna steak was overcooked and dry. The server didn't feel like working and it showed. Disappointed.

    22222 by Roula H.

  • WillVery good butter burger. Soups are very good. Slow service, even for lunch.

    55555 by Will

  • Tracy AOmg first the bread was amazing! 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

    55555 by Tracy A

  • Jeanne JWatermelon icecubes!

    55555 by Jeanne J

  • Andrew ChanGood space for small corporate meals. Acoustics are horrible for larger groups. Food is well executed, but nothing particular to shout about.

    33333 by Andrew Chan

  • Colin TThe meal, the service, the staff, the ale and the food. Glorious food! Outstanding

    55555 by Colin T

  • Eaters EFish of the day - not memorable, dry, overcook. Chopped salad - average, a bit over dressed. Space is nice & intimate. I'd give it a pass. Very average. :(

    55555 by Eaters E

  • Rayshawn JThe grilled double cut pork chop is amazing! Everything on this plate including the collard green sauerkraut was flavorful. This dish is a must. Have it prepared medium, great stuff!

    55555 by Rayshawn J

  • Rayshawn JIf you're lucky, you might catch Iron Chef Guarnaschelli there. If not, you can always get an autographed photo.

    55555 by Rayshawn J

  • Rayshawn JTry the veal bacon. This and the primitvo wine mustard on top definitely gives pork bacon a run for its money.

    55555 by Rayshawn J

  • Rayshawn JThe chicken breast is very moist. Not a single dry piece. Just the way I like it.

    33333 by Rayshawn J

  • Rayshawn JThe gnocchi melts in your mouth. Very creamy.

    55555 by Rayshawn J

  • Robert-Jan ENice cocktails

    55555 by Robert-Jan E

  • Ashley A.Drinks run a bit pricey, so your best bet is to split a bottle of wine at the bar and an order of very good fries.

    55555 by Ashley A.

  • Brant AA decent place for lunch in midtown - the burger was perfectly cooked.

    55555 by Brant A

  • Ben H.Food was good, the subtle use of just the potato skin with the fries gave a different texture to good house fries.

    55555 by Ben H.

  • Tara D.can't go wrong with anything on the menu, but what shines is the ghost margarita and the beignets

    55555 by Tara D.

  • J MGood place for midtown meetings. Their dinner rolls are nice.

    55555 by J M

  • Karan TamhaneThe entrees were amazing! Get the NY strip steak. Raspberry beignets were pretty good too, although a tad too tart. The veal bacon wasn't too great, mostly due to the sour mustard sauce.

    55555 by Karan Tamhane

  • Susan S.The raspberry beignets were outstanding! The vanilla dipping sauce took them to the next level. Everything on the dessert menu looked amazing.

    55555 by Susan S.

  • Jessica PThe interior decor is enough to check this place out. I have gone for restaurant week but the service is always fantastic and they will give you as much bread and fancy butter as your heart desires

    55555 by Jessica P

  • Marcos RThe Pork Chop Ribs are so tasty. But the Halibut is a most. We share both an it was a great decision to be able to try it. The key lime ice pie was almost perfect.

    55555 by Marcos R

  • Ashley M.Cauliflower steak is incredible. So is the chicken.

    55555 by Ashley M.

  • Manuel A. MDemasiado elitista. La comida está bien pero los camareros no son agradables. No volvería

    33333 by Manuel A. M

  • PureWowGood news: When you dine alone, no one’s sharing your lobster tail.

    33333 by PureWow

  • Alec SThe French toast is HUGE, delicious, and full of flavor. I also really enjoyed the Brussels sprouts.

    55555 by Alec S

  • Dave ReedDon't miss out on the private garden in the back, perfect for a summer night!

    55555 by Dave Reed

  • Michael F.Veal bacon is awesome beignets delicious. Nice decor, pleasant atmosphere, polite if slightly excessive service

    55555 by Michael F.

  • Berk K.The pan-seared branzino was delicious. Butter-cut beef fillet was legendary. A great spot for a romantic dinner. Also, a beautiful decor and a relatively quiet restaurant.

    55555 by Berk K.

  • Lydia Abutter is a fine dining experience. I do however advise it make a reservation it gets busy but defiantly worth the wait

    55555 by Lydia A

  • Jeremy J.Service just wasn't good at all, and for the prices, the food should be way better and more substantial!

    33333 by Jeremy J.

  • Igor LevitDefinitely exceeded expectations. I'm with everyone about that Brussels sprouts appetizer...excellent. Cocktails are also great, but they better be at those prices.

    55555 by Igor Levit

  • Dave CummingsTake advantage of the great bar

    55555 by Dave Cummings

    55555 by Alexandra P.

  • Mandi G.if you havent tried the brussel sprout appetizer, then you havent lived life

    55555 by Mandi G.

  • Tiffany L.Chic and popular hangout. Food will cost a pretty penny but it's worth it.

    55555 by Tiffany L.

  • Stephanie O.The raspberry beignets are a MUST. Polished off the plate in less than 3 minutes.

    55555 by Stephanie O.

  • Kt LacasseThe bread is toasted to perfection, but its sea salt crusted top is the real showstopper. Absolutely divine. For an appetizer, order the Brussels sprouts with homemade ricotta

    55555 by Kt Lacasse

  • Kimberley S.I recommend the Butter Burger or the Braised Prime Beef Short Ribs

    55555 by Kimberley S.

  • Marion J.Every steak I've had here is exquisite. I try to come here whenever I'm in town.

  • Harumi U.Venue is big and gorgeous. With Alex Guarnaschelli's name, it doesn't have a problem filling that space. Meal food is great but I was not quite satisfied with desserts...

    33333 by Jen Rivera

  • Jorge B.When I read the name of the restaurant I was expecting well...butter. To my joy it was more than that. If you can't pick up my sarcasm then forget you. FYI: I hate Foursquare.

    33333 by Jorge B.

  • Buffy C.I had the corn soup/ravioli/tart (for restaurant week!) it was so good I almost peed myself. That dessert reminds of Christmas.

    55555 by Buffy C.
