I was hoping to come here for happy hour cocktails and small bites by the bar... sadly, the place has been devoid of furniture and the tanks are drained without any seafood. Another sad chapter in NYC's culinary scene.

Great dinner. Prefixe menu with many choices. White tablecloth but not pretentious. Friendly. Decent wine list. Reasonable prices (for midtown NYC). Food was tasty; service helpful and efficient. One of the better experiences I've had dining in Manhattan
