    One of the amazing venues in NYC for a wedding or event celebration. The food, the service and the attention to details.

    Protip: get a table on the roof. It's a great view of Bryant Park and can be less crowded than inside or the patio.

    The Grilled Hanger steak has really good flavor! Frozen margarita is made with just enough kick. Enjoy!

    The cobb salad is everything a healthy salad shouldn't be. I recommend it

    Great fare, cocktails and ambiance but beware the aggressive vultures that like to swarm, then attack. Pretending to speak another language usually helps.

    Try the Yummy calamari, steak salad with a Stella draught.

    Jumbo lump crab cakes, persimmon frisée salad, sashimi tuna tacos are all solid choices! Yum!

    A classic New York City spot, great for business casual lunches. The atrium makes for a great dining experience! The Cobb salad and the calamari are great. Pair with the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.

    Great outdoor bar. Just close enough to the public library to feel like you're getting some culture and intellectual stimulation while downing vodka tonics out of plastic cups.

  • Rob E.

    Went at 2pm: Lunch staff didn't know who ordered what, & served the entree while I was still chewing my app (probably because the kitchen was closing at 3). Do not get the steak. Ravioli was meh.

    Good food, good service but a tad pricey. Good place to people watch.

    Bryan S. · August 22, 2013
  • Dan

    If you come here, it's for the atmosphere. Food is pretentiously unspectacular and the service honestly leaves a lot to be desired... Even by New York standards.

    7.21.13 Great restaurant in my favorite park. We had dinner after seeing "Forever Tango" - blue crab app, mushroom ravioli, baked strozzapreti pasta dinner, chocolate tart dessert & of course Mojitis!

    Vincente was our server & his service was awful. If you get him, ask to move to another table.

    The nearby outdoor public restrooms are the nicest in the city. Lines are often long with tourists, but worth it. So clean.
