    If you want a guaranteed great meal keep this iconic resto in mind. Used to go on the reg. After a 7 years it's just as great as the first time. Veggie sides, steak, burger, tartar...service =+++

    The food was absolutely delicious, however the service was a bit too relaxed for my liking. It took our server 40 minutes just to take our order. But I still love it and great food!

    The vibe is very "plaza hotel" and the brunch is super rich if that's what you're into.

    The main floor dining room is great for conversation. I hope the new location can retain the quiet, less frenetic ambience of so many manhattan restaurants.

    Everything was amazing! Was here for my birthday & did not hold back. Had three sets of appetizers before a steak entree and each platter was phenomenal. Even the bread and olive oil/spices were great

    Great service, solid and well executed New American. Carpaccio was very good. Cobia sashimi was a bit fishy

    The USC Burger is served on a brioche bun, with cheddar, bacon, pickles, and onion. It's juicy, full of delicious flavor, and comes with a mountain of french fries. Read more

    The USC burger tasted fresh. Loved their honeycrisp apple cobbler that comes with a chipotle-cheddar biscuit & Brown butter ice cream :)

    USC burger, medium rare. Make them send away the bread and butter for starters - you'll want all your space for this beauty

    Can't go wrong with Pan Roasted Chicken. Moist pudding and carrots on the side make it a perfect combination.

    The Bibb & Red Oak salad with the ricotta gnocchi was delicious--can't wait to come back to try more things!

    Very good place in Union square. Ambience is cosy. Highly recommended. Try the USC Burger with french fries, lamb and goal cheese omelette and for dessert, Banana Pretzel Tart, Macaron Platter.

    The spaghettini stole the show for me with the swordfish meatballs. It was perfection. I got the steak but it was a little too salty. The lamb was phenomenal. A little underwhelmed but good overall

  • Juwan M.

    Danny Meyer is a culinary genius, so the food is obviously incredible. The menu changes and all food is locally and seasonally sourced. A great place for any party or occasion.

    Juwan Mimes · August 14, 2014
  • Megan J.

    Good: baked eggs (rustic, but yummy). BLT was good, but we like a stacked BLT with more of everything. Only order when tomatoes are in season. Fresh squeezed juice=yummy bfast cocktails.

    Megan Johnson · August 10, 2014
  • Lori L.

    Classic American dining at it's best. Come for brunch, where you'll find an excellent USC Burger and Lamb and Goat Cheese Omelette.

    The steaks are bland and the service is phony. Find another restaurant which deserves your hard earned cash.

    Feeling indulgent? French Toast & the Tuna Burger. Rhubarb smash drink is perfect for a summer brunch. Orrata is a good main.
