    I'm always looking for gluten free and this was perfectly made at the Burger Bar. Burger, fries, beer - what ever you want. Great.

    Good burgers and fries, but horrendous service if mildly crowded (i.e. won't seat large waitlist even when half the tables are empty, and drinks ordered at bar take forever).

    The prices are up there but they know how to cook a burger to your very specifications.

    Kobe Beef tastes like a Denny's burger so thin, foie gras was cold, no sear. not worth even the price of a Denny's Burger.

    The view is cool if you can get a seat by the window. The $65 Kobe Foie Gras burger was awesome, but it was also $65.

    Wings, fries and burgers are awesome. You must choose medium or medium well for your meat. Also you can see the Union Square while you can taste your awesone milkshake and other beverages.

    Before I became a vegetarian, this was my favorite dinner date place. The ultra-spicy burger is SO good/SO spicy, onion buns are delicious, and definitely order aioli w/ your fries. GORGEOUS views! :)
