Lobster tacos are some next level shit
Lovely atmosphere average food though!
Super cool hidden entrance through a pawn shop. Succulent jerk chicken and tasty garlic and chilli broccoli. Cool music too!
Lobster Mac and cheese and emerald gimlet are the best things ever. I die
Lots of tapas. Don't be afraid to try the veggie options.
Lobster tacos and fries are awesome
Ask for a tasting menu, you will eat about 10 delicious menu items. Buy the 08 Malbec red wine.
The grilled cheese and bacon soup dumplings, as well as the platinum peacock, were on point.
I loved everything I ate!
What a fabulous place. Strong cocktails and amazing food. My favorites are Grilled Cheese, Bacon and Tomato Soup Dumplings, Thai Shrimp and Chicken Meatballls. WOW!!
The cocktails are amazing but the DJ was way off in music choices. Totally killed the vibe. It's a good place to start off the night, but not from start to finish.
Pricey drinks but great for large groups
To be honest I don't remember the food but definitely go for the atmosphere. Good spot to take people visiting NY.
The BBQ fries. Just do it.
Yummiest lobster tacos and tomato dumpling things!! Didn't love the s'mores cup but loved the decor.
Emerald gimlet!!!!, tomato soup dumplings and get the shishito peppers! dont expect a quite atmosphere its loud and fun for a girls night out!!
Emerald gimlet, tomato soup dumplings and steak tartare are a must.
Omg love this place. Grown up version of a Disneyland lol. Awesome food. Can't say any terrible things. Must try: grilled cheese dumpling, gargenelli, smore in a cup and devils sundae.
Overrated and overpriced. Crowded and loud with club music blasting. Food was terribly mediocre. There are countless better options at this price range. Skip it
The bacon wrapped grilled cheese in tomato soup dumplings may be the greatest food you will ever eat. The Empanadas, Filet Mignon, and BBQ French fries are all also unbelievable.
The eggplant appetizer was good. Wasn't too excited about the salmon or dessert
Amazing food, highly recommend the filet.
Go for the atmosphere and vibe, you will get nice food with that too but not a wow one
Lobster taco and gimlet - lovely dinner
Bone marrow is so awesome! Ladies, hit the basement restroom, it's great.
Excellent, flavorful food. The Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand is fantastic. Also, the 90s hip-hop/R&B soundtrack is stupendous.
Love the atmosphere! The first floor is more of a dining vibe, the second floor more of fun. Dessert could be better- do NOT get there smores jars! I thought no one can mess up smores but I was wrong.
Awesome speakeasy style restaurant with an entrance through a pawn shop. Fun place to do tapas w/ friends. And of course they serve free champagne in the ladies restroom...no lies.
Surprisingly great food at an uber-trendy spot
MUST GET the grilled cheese, bacon and tomato soup dumplings!!
Dark. Very stylish. Breath taking. Service was excellent. Absolutely nothing to complain about. Oh, and free champagne in the ladies room? 'Nuff said. Don't forget to make reservations to go though.
Do not miss the "Philly" pretzel, a yummy twist on the classic Philly cheesesteak. The caramelized shallots and Gruyère cheese sauce make it amazing.
Excellent food, nice atmosphere
Surprised to see sashimi on the menu! Sashimi tako was surprisingly good. Also the crowd was older than I expected -- lots of 50+
Tomato tartare is delicious, but really, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu.
Everything is perfect! Sapphire 75 should be tasted.
All time fav! Trendy, great music, and pink champagne in the ladies restroom 🍸
Champagne in the powder room.
I wish we had places like this in Dallas! Love the romantic atmosphere but fun party clubby at the same time! A must visit in NYC!
Excellent food. Tacky decorations.
Awesome food, drinks and party atmosphere
Went here for my 30th bday. Great venue, amazing food, and pink champagne in the girls bathroom!
Great bar with amazing tapas. I have been here multiple times and found it best to order a bunch of tapas and skip the larger main courses.
Yes, it's true, complimentary pink champagne is served in the ladies only lounge/restroom downstairs
The entrance is fun. But if you're looking for an authentic experience, this is not the place! Awful music (top charts type, and loud) and lacks character in general. Attracts tourists.
