Extensive wine list. The food and the service were excellent. The menu had a wide selection of dishes. We all had a pasta dish and were not disappointed. The fondue was... More

Gnocchi was fresh and the best I have ever had, light and wonderful. Not gummy and doughy like most restaurant gnocchi. Most of the pasta dishes are... More

Came upon this place by accident, very hangry and had almost given up on finding some place that could accommodate food intolerances. Then the joyful Ben-Hur (and his sound effects) arrived at our table and made everything better! He was very knowledgable about ingredients, and helped me create a delicious and filling paleo lunch - gluten, dairy, and nightshade-free in... More

We had a wonderful experience. Great wine list, wonderful food and phenomenal service. Menu had many options and several dishes were altered to satisfy our children's picky eating.

We enjoyed such a tasty brunch here today to wrap-up a weekend in the city. Hubs enjoyed the savory and fresh Tuscan omelette, while I indulged in the lemon ricotta pancakes, balanced off with a savory side of perfect eggs. What a pleasant dining room with stunning cherry blossom branches and kind service! We will return soon to try other... More

My husband and I went here for my birthday dinner while we were in the city for the weekend. The food was delicious! We also got wine and dessert which were both good as well. They even brought over 2 glasses of free champagne for my birthday. Other than the fact that the waiter was somewhat rude and never smiled... 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.
