    My 1st dinner here & I'm thoroughly impressed! 2 thumbs up on quality, service AND presentation. The smoked rainbow trout w/ Swedish crab salad & quail egg is the way to go for appy (pictured).

    There is not a bad item on this menu, nor on the wine list, from what I've tasted so far. Go for the wagyu and blue crab surf and turf paired with a glass of the house white burgundy. Unbelievable.

    New chef. Very overpriced. The lamb roulade, which on paper comes with green peppercorn sauce, was overlooked and lacking any flavor at all. My friend's fluke confit was reportedly better. $70/person.

    Grilled squid is amazing! First time I had squid that wasn't over cooked and rubbery. A must try!

    Standards like eggs Benedict get the Vareli treatment with slow-poached eggs, tomato confit and prosciutto. Owner Amitzur Mor also loves the steak and eggs. Read more

    High hopes crushed by awful, rushed service. We were given the boot from our table after just one hour. And yes- we were eating and drinking.

    Great octopus, boring dorade. And that coulis was so pretty too... Some bad wait service to sort out but the hostesses were lovely.

    This is a nice Tel-Aviv style Tapas bar near Colombia U. Food and service were good, and so was the design. If you're around, this would be a cozy option indeed.

    Great new addition to the UWS/Columbia area. Great food, wine selection, and service. I really enjoy the small plates and desserts. Bartenders aren't bad either!
