    I always love coming back here, feels very LA w/ the open layout, greenery, skylights & reclaimed wood detailing. Fantastic for brunch, drinks or dinner - take your time, it's a nice spot to hang in.

    They have a great seasonal menu. I had the duck confit when they had it which was absolutely amazing. I also recommend the truffle mac & cheese. Would definitely come back to try their drinks

    They lost our reservation and then ran out of food. To make up for it the manager allowed the waiters to lose his gratuity in lieu of fixing the house's mistakes. Have some class Kingdwood.

    A great atmosphere with even better drinks (we recommend the Rose Royale), you'll instantly fall in love with this Australian restaurant in the heart of the West Village.

    The five spice old fashioned -- Elijah Craig 12 yr, Oolong spice syrup, plum bitters -- is delicious, and sweeter and milder than your everyday neighborhood old fashion.

    Food was decent for what it's worth, but running out of every main outside of the burger on a Saturday night was not. Not the first, but probably the last until the service improves.

    The worst service I have ever experienced in NYC. We waited approximately 2 hours for our food. Our drink orders were taken only twice within those 2 hours. Heard great things about this place too.

    Get the Ruby Bronte burger. Best modern take on a burger I've ever had. Truffle mayo, sweet chili sauce, served on a ciabatta... That kinda deal. Super filling.

    Oh what a disappointment. Shame management couldn't address the lost reservation, half of dishes unavailable, wine running out and oh oops, extra dishes to bill instead of the huge discount!

    A perfect place for dinner with friends OR just a drink at the bar. All the cocktails are amazing but the Ivy League (pictured) gets our top vote. Read more

    Great brunch spot. Order the lamb hash. Ignore the rest of the menu. Just order the lamb hash and be happy. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Food is good...but not only was our reservation for 8 lost, they also only had two mains left and overcharged us. Sorry but this place USED to be good.

    Food is delicious, but if you're looking for good service, head elsewhere. The surly waitstaff (minus the bartenders) never cease to amaze me.

    Play Toss the Boss (Sat 2–5pm, Sun 2–7pm): the bartender will flip a coin for each round; call it right and your drinks are on the house. Read more

    Bronte burgers get me weak in the knees. Fell in love with this burger last February at the Aussie's other venue, Ruby's Cafe in Nolita. Sweet chili sauce, come to mama! Read more

    Ask the beautiful bar manager, Beate to make you a specialty cocktail. You pick your booze she'll create magic!

    Share a bunch of small plates, all of them that we tried were great. Especially the mussels and kale salad.

    Mussels... Meh. Brick chicken and striped bass are the winning dishes. Those and the Mac and cheese of course...

    Basically food is good but they run out of everything so you have the option between burger or chicken nuggets. I guess it's worth 24$...

    The bartender is that dude from the LensCrafters bus commercial! Also, make sure you get the Avocado Toast...yum!

    Great 30's-age group after work drinks spot. Impressive cocktails menu and sexy, dim lighting.

    Best Brussels in the city. So good, we ordered 3 rounds. Nothing beats the equation of brussels + maple syrup + lime + bacon + fried egg!

    Fried egg sandwich is unassuming, but delicious. Although, technically it

    Get your drink on with the good-looking Aussie men and then get your burger on when you get the drunchies.

    Good cocktail and wine selection, but can get a little overcrowded on a Saturday night.

    Forgot to say that they forgot our reservation for 8 and squeezed us into a space for 5.

    Pricey cocktails? Pish posh. Order the $24 Rose and you're good to go.
