"I feel that we visit here more often than anywhere else in the area and I'm running out of ways to say: We really like it here. Interesting menu choices and old favorites, plus there is always a bargain or two to be found on the wine list. And only 15 minutes frm home. How can you beat that?"

Located directly across from the Museum of Natural History, Ocean Grill has been a staple for Upper West Side seafood lovers for years. Sample daily selections from the Raw and Sushi bars, paired with a featured wine and other fresh seafood. Feeling creative? Ocean Grill allows you to create your own meal with our daily list of Simply Grilled Fish served with your choice of sauce and seasonal side dish. Relax in the candle-lit lounge or refined dining area that resembles a luxury liner, complete with oversized mirrors and round porthole windows looking into the kitchen. The adjacent photo room is lined with retro black and white seaside snapshots and is a perfect spot for romance or celebration and as always kids are welcome.

What does creative casual cuisine mean? Exactly what it says. We’re creative, because we reject the same-old-same-old in favor of tastes that are interesting and unique. We’re casual because while our food may be worth getting dressed up for, we invite you to come as you are. We’re all about cuisine in the sense that our chefs apply high standards of culinary art. There it is. Creative. Casual. Cuisine. If it sounds like your kind of place, then you – like us- are not your average Joe.

"this is our 3rd Valentine's Day dinner in a row at NYAJ Westboro. Rather than wrestle with travel and traffic in the city, I know that without fail, we will get a good meal and good service in a relaxed setting. The lamb chops were plentiful and cooked just right with char outside and pink inside. Likewise for the 'Pork Two Ways' with a tenderloin cooked through (as requested) and a lovely marinated pork belly.. The Chocolate Torte was beautiful on the plate, rich and sweet. We'll be back - and before next Valentine's Day. Also altho it's not extensive, there are some nice values on their wine list"

"I can never find a bad word to say about Tavolino. They cover a broad range of Italian from pizza to chicken parm to risottos and further. Also there is always a bargain or two on their wine list (and their wine mark-ups are surprisingly low throughout)!
this time I opted for a large piece of veal parmesan which was terrific, but my mouth was watering over the lamnb shank across the table. It was a large shank, with a crunchy crust on the outside and tender inside, served with seasoned brsussel sprouts - wow!"

"consistently good. This is the third 5 Napkin that I've visited and been consistently satisfied on reach visit. Not the widest menu, but every thing I've tried has been cooked to order, service is attentive and there's a wide selection of beer choices to go with the food"

"This was out first time dining at the Arte Cafe. I was pleasantly surprised at the variety in the menu and the lengthy wine list. Service was very attentive - even for a group of 9 with some ordering from price fixe and some ordering one or two other courses. We were very happy with our meal"

"As I'm in the area regularly, I don't know why I'd never stopped into Fratelli La Bufala before. The menu walks a nice line between red-checkered-tablecloth favorites (pizza, etc) and more adventurous choices (pizza with unusual toppings like eggplant ). I had the Cannelloni with 3 sauces in which each sauce was pleasingly done and well-presented. A reasonably lengthy and reasonably priced wine list was a bonus. This is not haute cuisine Italian , but a well-done meal, with good sevice at a good price"
