"This is why Clydes of Gallery Place is such a favorite of my family: great food, wide menu selection which varies seasonably, big comfortable booths, hot bread on the table and superior service. The shrimp pasta was outstanding, with large juicy shrimp served with bow-tie pasta, chopped tomatoes, zucchini and squash sauted to perfection all in a rich tomato sauce. Very large portion which, with hot bread, was an Italian feast! So happy to see South African dry rose wine (mulderbosch) on the wine list. A perfect addition to a fine meal. Service could not have been any better."

IL Cortile has been family owned and run since 1975. A neighborhood staple for almost 35 years the Esposito family continues the tradition of sparing nothing to provide only the highest quality ingredients in all Cortile dishes. We are a full Service Restaurant Establishment offering both A-La-Carte dinning and a wide variety of pre-fix menu"s for group gatherings as well as off premise catering.

"There are many restaurants up and down Mulberry Street but they are not all created equal. Resist the urge to wander into the first restaurant that looks good and steer yourself to Il Cortile where the food is out of this world. There is a lovely dining patio out front, but if you wish a quieter setting, ask to be seated in the garden atrium. Full of character and quiet. Service is outstanding....ice water and a big bread basket appear instantly and the menu is printed on a gold-sealed folded paper. We were a party of four and each dish was excellent. The veal dishes were creatively prepared and were the best we had ever eaten. Interesting wine selection and an array of yummy deserts. This is the place to eat if you love good food."

Le Rivage offers you a cozy, romantic French country atmosphere where traditional French cuisine is expertly prepared for your pleasure. Fresh flowers embellish each table. Prices are delightfully affordable with incredibly rewarding selections; a true bargain in the heart of the theatre district.

"The beauty of this restaurant is the fixed price menu for theater goers. Appetizer,main meal, dessert and coffee all for $39. The selection is extensive and daily specials are included as well. The night we dined, coq au vin was one of the daily specials and it was delicious. Dessert included such choices as creme brulee and creme caramel. Well organized hostess and excellent quick service to accommodate various theater goers. Very comfortable seating in a relaxed setting. An additional bonus was a glass of house merlot that was in a super large glass and made my evening!"

Amarone’s homey indoor-outdoor trattoria on the edge of the theater district on 9th Avenue between 47th and 48th offers amazing eats that reflect the owners’ Italian background. Amarone stands out as one of New York’s best values in Hell’s Kitchen and surpasses even the highest expectations. Amarone has taken the expression “make your customers feel at home” to the next level. Sometimes it is hard to leave.

"The interior of this restaurant was cozy with brick walls and great decorations. The service was excellent and a basket of fresh bread was immediately brought to the table. The fettucini portofino was loaded with fresh shrimp and scallops in a tomato based sauce. Absolutely delicious. The pear salad with peccorino cheese was wonderful as was the linguine putanesca. All the food is freshly prepared and arrives piping hot at the table. There are no negatives about this restaurant just a lot of atmosphere and great Italian food."

"Clyde's is the kind of restaurant where you can grab a quick sandwich, an interesting main dish salad or a complete meal. The food is always delicious. Hot fresh bread accompanies the main dishes and ice water is automatically served. The dining room is wood-paneled, warm and inviting with large comfortable booths. Service is always excellent. The seasonal menus are wonderful as they highlight all the best produce available. Prices are very reasonable for such great variety and wonderfully prepared food. This is my neighborhood go-to eatery."

"Because of Clyde's ever-changing seasonal menu, there is always something new and delicious to try. And try sampling on a Monday night when the wine is half price! Gives us a break on the bill and makes us keep coming back. Their ribs are succulent and still lots of delicious fresh fish during these summer months. Service is always very good."

Under the direction of renowned chef José Andrés, Zaytinya offers an innovative mezze menu inspired by Turkish, Greek and Lebanese cuisines served up in a sleek and modern setting. Shared small plates, creative cocktails and unique Mediterranean wines make this spot one of DC’s top dining destinations.

"The food at Zaytinya is always wonderful and the service outstanding. The service is so good that we had to hang onto our dishes which were not quite finished when the roaming kitchen staff attempted to remove them from the table. The constant procession of fresh hot dipping bread (perfect for the htipiti) is just one of the highlights of dining at Zaytinya. The two lamb dishes were succulent and tender, the crisp brussel sprouts outstanding and the Summer Grilled vegetables perfect in every way. Chilled Greek rose wine was perfect with this meal."
