    TL;DR: Cheesecake! Visited NY one time a couple years ago and ate here. I remember service & food was great. But what has my mouth salivating to this day is the cheesecake. Best I've ever had!

    Slow and inattentive service. Overpriced. Desserts had bad presentation and might have been pre-frozen for having a pastry chef listed on the dessert menu...

    Grab a high table if it's packed at lunchtime. Then again I can't really recommend it - $20 for ONE small lonely crab cake, $23 for a very average burger, and a server who was pretty useless at best.

    Very nice atmosphere but food not worth the price. Greens very very bitter and not impressed with portions... I'd go somewhere else next visit. Can't beat view of rockefeller center though.

    Consistently good, classic American food in a civilized setting. Slightly less pricey than other midtown restaurants in the same area, if you stick to the salads and appetizers. Friendly service, too.
