    The hitachino nest white ale is a must try here. Expensive, but not easy to find in nyc (trader joes has it too but not too many other places)

    Saturday nights. Upstairs the opera is so magnificent; sort of like a nineteenth century salon. I am not classically educated, but I really loved the tremendous voices on display here!

    A great place to grab a seriously strong martini, in a quiet atmosphere, on a weekend afternoon. One of the few places in midtown that I would recommend.

    Saturday night opera is the very best live entertainment in NYC for the price. Great value with amazing talent and an overall good time. Highly recommended by me.

    Casual dining with a French flair. Roomy with fun bar space on two floors. Great for lunch and dinner.

    Less French and more sports bar. A fairly nice atmosphere inside. The Long Island iced tea was massive and not very nice.

    Good spot for brunch, big proportion with very reasonable price including complementary mimosa and Bloody Mary.

    Nice place, friendly, but slow bar. If you are trying to get your drink on, it might take a long time. I would suggest pre-drinking.

    Popular business lunch location in midtown. Good vibes and ambience. Food is bistro fare without flair.

    I ordered moules frites in a white sauce. They gave me so many mussels I didn't know what to do. They are delicious and you should order them immediately.

    Heard toward young professionals - definitely not stuffy. This may be my go to place for after work.

    We arrived on a week day around 5 pm. They directed us to a dinner table, at which we were not even greeted by a server for the first 15 mins. and it was even not crowded. We left without eating.

    On Thursday evenings after work, it's a steaming stew of straight men.

    Free range chicken with spinach was good. They have a good kids menu. Ordered two different types of red wine that were just so so.
  • Michael F.
    Absolutely inedible food across the board from appetizers to dessert. Come for a drink if you must, but avoid the food... And I rarely say that.

    Great Croque Madame and a decent beer selection. The service is poor. The waiters are not attentive.

    Dont waste your money on the Papillon salad or Steak Tartare, both just awful. Salad overdressed wilted mess and steak tartare had absolutely no flavor at all and texture was way too mushy.

    The potstickers do not have ginger or sriracha. So some false advertising there...

    Wish I had gone elsewhere after seeing the brunch bill. Half the food was good, the other half, eh. 2 people did not get food until most were finished.

    Terrible service! My friends and I waited for over an Hour for our food, our server made excuse after excuse about why it was taking so long. We were given no restitution.
