"Food is fresh and prepared simply. The menu incorporates Greek favorites with the fresh fish dishes of the Greek Islands. We frequent Ethos because it's among the good restaurants in the neighborhood."

Circo offers upscale Italian fare built upon a foundation of signature Tuscan recipes from the kitchen of Maccioni matriarch Egidiana and prepared by Executive Chef Alfio Longo. The menu is served in a lively, sophisticated setting reminiscent of the old-style European circus tents which inspired the restaurant's name.<br /><br />"When we opened Circo in 1996, our business plan was simple, Dad's Hospitality, Mom's Food, run by the sons."<br /><br />Bright blue circus rings suspended with gold stars, sculptures of monkeys swinging near overhead, playful clowns dancing above the open kitchen and a ceiling hung with tapestries & trapezes all reinforce the vibrant circus theme.

"One of the better choices for a meal at Roosevelt Field. It's a chain, good for steaks, a little more upscale than the other choices at the Mall. They do a happy birthday table decoration and a card, which is a very nice touch."

The cuisine is a mix of comfort food, prime steakhouse staples, and seafood dishes with a fine flair. The juxtaposition of old design and modern food add to the ambiance that makes Hendrick’s Tavern a unique dining destination.

"Not anything to run out to. This restaurant is run of the mill, nothing spectacular. I ordered a beef carpaccio which was drowned in balsamic vinegar to the point of choking me. The fish dish I had, off of the menu was plain tasting filet with plain spinach and a little leek. (The leek had a taste!) Our server was very pleasant and the gentlemen kept our water glasses filled. I would go back to try other dishes. Perhaps I just picked the wrong things to eat."

A royal feast awaits you at Re Sette, transporting guests to another era with exquisite design and elegant Southern Mediterranean cuisine. Downstairs, the 1,800-square-foot restaurant offers seating in an intimate dining room, lounge and bar. Guests enjoy a grand entrance, with a vaulted ceiling and long mahogany bar that features an expansive menu of grappa, the favored drink of Italian kings. The designs regal influences are seen throughout and conjure an opulent time: jewel-toned tapestry-covered chairs dimly lit ornate candelabras and deep Naugahyde banquettes against brick red textured walls.

"Needed to eat after theater (on 47 Street) and found ReSette on 45. We had a very friendly waiter who was not on top of us, and even though it was late, he told us to take our time. He did not bother us to get the next course, finish our wine, get out. We ordered appetizers because it was late but specials were still available. The tuna tartar was very good and fresh. It is plated with sauces done very artistically. The Caesar salad was another good choice. Not overdone on dressing, and yet tasty with fresh Romaine. We also had a shrimp, endive salad with a lovely lemon vinaigrette. The ambiance is very relaxing, and makes a special atmosphere."

Giardinetto's specialty is Northern Italian cuisine and they pride themselves in making fresh and delicious food. The menu includes salads and pastas, and they offer a dining experience that you will enjoy.

"Giardinetto is a nice restaurant in an area that has few and far between nice restaurants. People want to please. We had the beef carpaccio that was probably very good, but the taste was overridden with balsamic vinegar. The Caesar salad had a tasty, creamy dressing, and the lettuce was very fresh. The pasta fresco was overcooked, but the sauce and seafood was good. The whole bronzino grilled with herbs was amongst the delectable and freshest we've had."
