"We had a great evening at The Gander on June 28, largely due to the food and amazing service. The room itself is designed well and the acoustics not so loud. Our server was approachable, funny, met our energy level and was terrific with explaining all the food and wine."

"I was disappointed with the attitude of service. It started at the check in and continued throughout the meal. We were made to feel like the maitre 'd and servers were doing us a favor in helping us. This is disappointing given the high quality of food."

Located in the New York landmarked Hotel Des Artistes, and surrounded by the astonishing 1920s murals by Howard Chandler Christy, THE LEOPARD at des Artistes finds its roots in the area once known as “The Kingdom of the Two Sicilies” (mid 1800s) and in the culinary traditions of the regions of Campania, Basilicata, Calabria, Apulia, Sardinia, and of course Sicily, reaching a balance between dishes based on rural elements, such as pasta, vegetables, cheese, and seafood ingredients from the Costiera. <br />

"I loved this restaurant. We went after a performance at Lincoln Center and had the most charming experience. The server was very attentive and extremely knowledgeable about the food. And the food was outstanding. I'll be back for a post theater experience!"

The Marrow is a contemporary American restaurant, located amidst picturesque brownstones and cobblestone streets in the West Village, run by Chef Harold Dieterle and Alicia Nosenzo, owners of nearby Perilla and Kin Shop. The food is inspired by the ethnic heritage of Harold’s parents, reflecting his father’s German ancestry and mother’s Italian lineage. To complement The Marrow’s menu, an extensive, yet approachable beverage program is offered that includes nearly 400 wines, with a strong emphasis on Italian, German, and Austrian producers.

"My friends and I were really impressed with Acme. Each person who works there that we encountered was courteous, charming and helpful. The food was outstanding. We especially loved the mackerel tarts and brown eggs. I will definitely be back!"

De Santos is housed in a rustic but chic townhouse in the West Village where you can enjoy Traditional American, International and Mediterranean influenced cuisine from culinary genius Executive Chef Angel Vela. The dark wood and exposed brick dining areas are sexy and cozy. If you're lucky enough to get seated in the downstairs hidden jewel, the Janis, another ambiance will hit your senses as you dine with friends and family, breathing the same air as legends like Janis Joplin and Bob Dylan. This secluded speakeasy rock n' roll room is also used for VIP's and larger private parties. The wide marble topped bar is a great place for a cocktail but comfy enough to stay and indulge in a full meal. French doors open to a large outdoor patio with exposed brick archway and awning where, when dining by candlelight you'll feel transported to the Mediterranean. Wednesday through Saturday late hours there's mixed music and surprises. Only at De Santos. Welcome. <br /><br />

"I was not impressed with this restaurant. The food was unappealing - the swordfish included a section that we needed to scrape off to the side that was not edible. Service was not attentive - when we brought this to the attention of the server, he essentially shrugged and made no offer to make it right."

"I had an absolutely perfect experience at Zahav. The server was warm, charming, informative, eloquent and made our party of 2 feel at home. The food was outstanding and we complemented it with a bottle of Israili wine (my first). I live in Manhattan, and this was on my top meals in both cities in the last year. Kudos to the entire restaurant staff for putting on a great show."
