We found this place by accident across from our hotel and went two nights in a row. They have outdoor seating with heaters so it's quite comfortable regardless of the weather. The desserts were great and the signature chocolate martinis worth the cost. We were advised to get the truffle pizza which was very average at best so I'd say... More

My companions and I decided to end our last night of our visit to NYC with a trip to this charming little restaurant. I had the cheesecake with chocolate fondue and they enjoyed the molten chocolate cake. They had also ordered an entree. The beef kabob was not a hit with my sister. She compared it to "Jimmy Dean Sausages... More

Great late night spot to grab a glass of wine and cheese board. Great outdoors sidewalk seating and small indoor seating area. The food and drink were delicious and great service too!

Generally when I am disappointed in a restaurant I do not write a negative review. I like to review all my positive experiences but this time I make an exception. Our experience was very surprising given so many positive reviews making me think those who had a bad experience did not bother to make a comment. We were looking forward... More

Having read revues on Trip, we decided to go for a drink if nothing else and we were not disappointed. I had a Chocolate Manhattan which was scrummy to say the least so I just had to have another and we left delighted at what we'd tasted. The place was buzzing and the food looked to be as good as...

The wait staff is very knowledgeable about the food and wine. Be sure to order the cheese board with a bottle of wine. The entree was good. My wife had the steak and I had the chicken. Both were wonderful. For dessert we had the twenty layer creme brule cake. It was not overly sweet like most. It was definitely... More

We tried the chocolate pizza and crepe cake. Both were very good! They have a fun martini menu but I opted for wine. This place is VERY tiny and dark. Also there is only one bathroom for all patrons, so if you plan on drinking a lot, good luck!

My daughter took me here during a visit to NYC just so I could have the 20-layer crepe cake brûlée. Amazing flavorful, despite being so light and airy that you don't have to chew! I'm not sure how the make this, but I've asked her to look into whether we can buy one for our next holiday meal! Simply divine!... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
