    Barely a shadow of its former self. Head over to the Red Head for chicken instead. Oh, no free refills on that $4 sweet tea either.

    More pricey then some may expect but if you know what you want (for me fried chicken, mac & cheese & candied yams) and it's to fill a craving, it hits the spot pretty well.

    Portion size was small for the prices. Food was ok. Not great but not awful. Apparently some celebrities eat here...don't understand why

    The food is still good but they doubled the prices on the entire menu it seems because I don't remember ever paying $25 for smothered chicken with 2 small sides!!!!!!! That's Sick!!!!!!!

    How disappointed I was. No more jukebox. No more pink wall. No more Corn bread. No more charm. Hopefully.their corn waffle is good. As for their watermelon honey lemonade

    I was there February 2009 when it was still on grove street. I had the best soul food experience ever. Their corn bread were to die for! So as I was in the neighborhood, I wanted to go back.

    Be transported to a trendy wonderland, adorned with pink throw pillows and exposed brick walls. We recommend the pulled pork sandwich with barbeque sauce or the Fried Chicken and Sweet potato waffles.

    Rarely do I feel like I've been truly ripped off in NYC. But $57.70 + tip for 2 fried chicken entrees and a small soda (no free refills) is a ripoff. Even worse that food was only OK.

    Best Collard greens that I've had in NYC! But I have to say, I ordered the catfish and sweet potato waffle but I got sweet potato fries instead. WTF? I mean, since when do fries equal waffle?

    Underwhelmed. The only way to properly experience the Pink Tea Cup is with a time machine.

    I meant to leave a tip last time I was here. Horrible service. Horrible food. Go anywhere else for your soul food experience. Do. Not. Eat. Here.

    The a la cart Mac & Cheese and Greens are your best bet. Everything else overpriced.

    Chicken salad sammich was good. The chicken and waffles was a C-. Drink menu looks superb, will try a go the next time with the salmon croquettes. The new venue lost it's charm completely. :(

    The "Lunch" menu was whack. The ambiance is nice, but the restaurant has lost its "grove street" soul. Where is the jukebox? The drinks are outstanding. Will try the dinner menu and write review.

    Excellent food. Try the chicken and dumplings. The strawberry lemonade and the mint-grape are made fresh and spectacular! Make sure Virgil is your waiter and tell him the Cincinnati girls sent you.

    The old goodies are still here: smothered pork chop, fried chicken, frog's legs. But the new menu also has more "health-conscious foods" like seaweed salad and herb-crusted rack of lamb. Read more
