    I live in Hell's Kitchen and this place is my go to for a pre show dinner. Solid menu choices for everyone and broadway themed cocktails? Can't beat it! The servers are also extremely sweet.

    One of the best brunch spots! Fun cocktails, great ambiance, extensive menu (and we both loved what we got), and best part - warm berry muffins!!! Oh and they play Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears

    Great brunch spot! Eat at the bar to avoid long waits. The herbed eggs, cheese grits & sweet sausage were just what I needed after last night's antics.

    In love with the slightly southern veranda feel of this place. Grab a seat outside if you can get it. Everything on their menu of American classics is good. You won't be disappointed!

    Gorgeous waiters will serve you delicious Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese and Grilled Sirloin Steak Frites, that is, if you can stay away from their refreshing cocktails.

    Great atmosphere, minimalist decor, fantastic menu makes it almost impossible to decide. So pick anything as nothing will disappoint! If you're from out of town, must take home a Heaven in Hell tee.

    "The silver dollar stack is one of the best pancake dishes in the city -- it's topped off with blueberry butter and VT maple syrup, and served with a side of breakfast sausage."

    Beautiful mid-range option in Hell's Kitchen. Delicious food, friendly service and romantic candle light atmosphere. Try the sea bass!

    Have the ribs as they are amazing. So is the filet mignon. They need to up the service since it is the only lacking area in this restaurant.

    Chec out the drink menu at brunch. "Mariah Carey's The Emancipation of Mimosa" is an enormous pitcher of mimosa. Treat yourself and listen to Lady Gaga on the playlist.

    Great breakfast, did everything correctly. But far from fantastic, and definitely lack of the "wow" factor comparing to other top notch brunch places. Patio at the back is pretty nice.

    Omeletes were sooo filling!! Combination with strawberries seemed rather awkward with potatoes, but apart from the goat cheese tasting too sour, everything else was good

    Everything here is delicious. Order the mac & cheese (best in the city, but share because it's huge). Amazing short ribs, quesadilla is also fantastic.
  • Alex K.
    Personally had service here. Probably more the waiters fault than the restaurant's. But also, I think they gave me 12 eggs with my order of huevos rancheros. It was giant.
