What a cracking meal we had here. I had surf and turf. The steak was cooked perfect (rare) and the surf was a huge lobster tail. The service was first class. Would recommend to anyone.

The service was not good: we waited a long time before we got the menu and drinks. There was meat in the vegetarian meal and the cheesecake was dry.

Whenever we travel to New York, we go to this restaurant. We always have had a good experience. Usually they will have a piano player and a wonderful causal dinner. This time we brought our friends. They also enjoyed our meal.

Our hotel concierge recommended this as a tasty, convenient, and capable of feeding us before our theatre show. When we saw the restaurant's sign - La Rivista and Broadway Joe (no signs of any "Palatine") - we had visions of mediocre and stereotypical "Little Italy"...More
