    Oysters were super fresh and their burrata with pumpkin was delicious. Also, service was friendly and while slow at times, was actually perfect for a nice, intimate Friday night dinner.

    The Kale salad with candied walnuts and dried cherries and Caesar dressing infused with lemon zest and garlic, so good. Having Maria as your server, the BEST!!!

  • Bradly.
    Brunch? Get an order of the pancakes. I don't really like pancakes but these slices of heaven are not your average pancakes. I got the banana & choc. So good. You can thank me later. You're welcome!

    Great selection of beers to have with American Classic with a foodie twists. For instance the eggs Florentine had a nice portobello mushroom. A squash soup was dress with garlic shoots.

    So the hostess on Sunday was clueless. We asked if we could sit outside and she said they don't take reservation for outside table. Asked if we could wait and she says no. never going there again.

    The food is great, but the table service is AWFUL. If you go, sit at the bar. The full menu is available, and the bar staff is friendlier/more attentive.

    The beer list is fairly extensive. Nice rotation on both draught and bottle. You will find something to compliment your meal.

    the avocado soup is pretty tangy, but my wife enjoyed it. if you're looking for something smooth and creamy though it probably has too much acid for you.

    One of my favorite places in the NYC area. Great food. Love the Blue Cheese Burger or the Smoked Salmon Benedict.

    Decent food. Had HORRIBLE service on multiple occasions. Save yourself a headache, pass on Lighthorse and go to Amelia's or Bistro La Source instead.

    Sad how much service can ruin a place but in this case it's true. Terrible waiter and even worse manager. Thanks for nothing Light Horse.
