"what a great find! a cozy romantic tapas bar with really good food and an impressive wine list! since it was tapas, our table of 4 had a big assortment: excellent lamb chops, garlicky hummus, fried artichokes, a lovely brie and ham crostini, etc. the service is lovely, and the manager is very knowledgable about wine. I can't wait to go again."

"This lovely little French bistro has been in the neighborhood forever. The food is consistently good, and they do a good job of all the traditional French dishes. Friday special cassoulet is worth a visit, and there is a nice wine list too (very good and well priced Coppola cabernet)"

Located in New York's prestigious Forest Hills Gardens, Jade Eatery proudly highlights its Indian-Chinese cuisines & full sushi bar; an authentic aged Copper bar which offers the likes of rare and limited craft beers, top rated wine & sake list, one of a kind specialty drinks and signature flavors of Steam Stone Hookah. A walk through art gallery with rotating exhibits that feature the works of many talented artists and the Jade World Shop. The establishment's ambiance is inviting with votive-lit brick pillars, inspirational quotes that adorn the walls and a serene Jade Koi pond overlooked by a large intricate stone Buddha. While dining outdoors in an English Tudor-style cobblestone square you may forget you are in Queens. To top it off, the Dharma lounge thanks to the recommendations of The Knot and WeddingChannel.com, among others, is celebrated as a prime event space for wedding receptions, rehearsals, showers and other intimate occasions.

The memorable Northern Italian Cuisine makes this Upper East Side restaurant special. The Spaghetti Lobster is the classic signature dish of this Mediterranean treasure. The Wine Spectator awarded extensive and serious wine menu is carefully selected by owner Enrico Proietti. Very often a private wine tasting is happening at the corner table <br />making the wine list more notable every season. The one of a kind brick oven offers a variety of dishes, exceptional pizza and foccacina rabbiola that is hard to find in this city. For something sweeter-the deserts are impressive! The atmosphere is charming in this power playing neighborhood.

"great place! fabulous salad with artichoke and parmesano. the lingini alla vongole is excellent. my only complaint is the noise level of this restaurant - we usually try to go at an off hour, but even when half full, it is really loud (although the large table with poorly behaved children was a big contributor to that)"

"very quiet at lunchtime, so we had a very relaxed experience. delicious pork & lettuce wrap appetizer, and the wok-charred broccoli and chicken is excellent. finished off with a lovely (but very expensive, especially for queens) cabernet"

"great place!! we have been here 2 or 3 times now, and prefer to sit at the bar, even for dinner, - it has a cozy feel, and the bartender is excellent! the pizzas are delicious, as are the pastas, and we love the eggplant appetizer."
