"Had been to the GVG once before and had an amazing experience. This time was a bit disappointing. Evening began off on the wrong foot with a server that may have not been very experienced. He did t know the menu and immediately attempted to take our order at 1st introduction. We asked if we could have drinks 1st before we looked at me ye. Meal was less exciting than precious experience. (Mixed grill) lamb was but dry, , filet had a lot of gristle and pork chop was over done. Other guests I was with had similar experience. Based on my previous experience, I believe we just had an off night. Would give GVG another shot next time I'm in town"

Specializing in New Mexican Cuisine. Richardson’s concept has been around since 1988. Known for our red and green chile and our outstanding Wood Oven Pizzas. Our menu includes a variety of salads, appetizers, pastas, soup of the day and main entrees. Daily specials are written on our blackboards. And we also offer an extensive wine by the glass and reserve selection. We take reservations for parties of four or more.

BRIO (meaning "lively" or "full of life") is a "polished casual" restaurant serving authentic, northern Italian cuisine. The subtitle, "Tuscan Grille" is descriptive for a menu that features oven-roasted steaks, chops, and seafood; similar to what one would find in an authentic ristorante in Tuscany. BRIO's philosophy of "to eat well, is to live well" is why they only use the finest and freshest ingredients. BRIO brings the pleasure of a Tuscan country villa to the American city.

"Food was good, Service was excellent.. Could not say enough good things about service... I enjoyed the interesting asperigas salad, she: the Mahi mahi, my son also joined us... Had a nice experience, but not excited by the "value" of Bio."

"Chelsea's best kept secret..."<br /><br />An unexpected find on a busy Chelsea block, this bi-level gem offers killer Italian fare with seasonal ingenuity in a modern and attractive space overseen by a spot on staff. And the upstairs, speakeasy/bordello-like quarters serves up impressive red meats and pastas in an atmosphere rivaling that of the 1930's. Either way, a sexy vibe and genial staff make either floor a perfect date pick.

"Everything that came out of the kitchen was wonderful... in appearance, taste, and creativity. Only part of our evening that was lacking was our service. She was eager, but young and lacked experience... but learning... We had to ask if there were any specials.. never offered a wine list..
Were initially offered drinks when we first were seated... but were never again offered another. I would return because of the kitchen.. but would go with the expectation the front wait staff may be not equal

Established 1926 Frankie and Johnnie's Steakhouse is located in the former townhouse of John Barrymore. Frankie and Johnnie's Steakhouse has a look that is sleek and uncluttered, with a warmth that is inviting to all its guests. The menu is distinguished with its exceptional quality of USDA certified prime dry-aged beef and a secret blend of spices that season every steak before it hits the grill.<br />VOTED #1 STEAKHOUSE IN NEW YORK BY CITYSEARCH USERS<br />WINE SPECTATOR AWARD OF EXCELLENCE<br />INTERNATIONAL STAR DIAMOND AWARD
