The service was the worst ever. Although the food was good, we waited over an hour for our main course and they did not know what to do. Everyone who came after us was served. The waiter was inept and tried to blame the kitchen. We have been here many times but won’t be returning anytime soon

Service was attentive, my salad very fresh and the tomato/goat cheese tart probably the best I had: airy and fluffy pastry, warm goat cheese melting over roasted tomatoes, delectable.
Tatin tart was excellent, served warm, but I prefer it without ice cream, which makes it less authentic.
My companions were delighted, especially with the avocado toast and want to come back.
The espresso was top.

I really love this restaurant as having eaten here many times. But I have noticed that their roast chicken has gone downhill. It did not taste fresh, and did not have that nice roast chicken skin. For $30 they should do better - and have done better in the past.
The service did as best as they could, although they probably need more service people and maybe they cannot get them.

The fried calamari is so tender and delicious. The roast chicken is scrumptious, it's a winner.

I have been here many times and have always enjoyed my meal. This time, however, I was stressed that a mouse came up to my table and was scurrying around by my feet. Needless to say this lead to anxiety and thoughts of not returning again.
We told the waiter that we were celebrating my birthday but there was no acknowledgement when my dessert came until my husband reminded them about the celebration.

Ate outside lovely ambience. Service was very efficient friendly and attentive. The food is always good with a nice selection. It is definitely on the more expensive side but then again that’s the way of things in New York City.

Service was not great. Maitre d took 5 minutes to address me to let her know I had resy.

Chicken dish (1 of only 2) was not available for restaurant week menu. After almost begging waitstaff,
He agreed to substitute to honor rest week menu.

Food was great!!!

Service almost made it so I would not return!
