"My son ordered the tenderloin burrito off the specials menu and gobbled it up! He said it was awesome.. I tasted a bite and it was really good. The meat was cooked to perfection very tender and flavorful. My wife and I had the beef brisket.. It too was awesome. I had the jalapeno potato salad and black beans as side dishes.. My wife got the corn bread.. Mmm wonderfully prepared, tender as ever melt in your mouth meal..
Always a great place to go expectations of a great meal..
If you are there on the weekend ask for Jay as your server.. He’s the best!!!

Il Corso establishment was founded in 1993 by two native Italian women from the south of Italy.<br /><br />They chose to name their restaurant "Il Corso" because it means "the path". Their goal is to guide their clients on a path to a wonderful experience.<br /><br />We pride ourselves on selecting the finest ingredients for our recipes. In addition to our menu, we offer daily specials that your server will present to you.<br />Il Corso's warm, cozy ambiance is complimented by an exquisite selection of moderately priced wines, full bar and nurtured by a friendly and knowledgeable staff serves.

"Great Italian food! Pastas are excellent! Menu online is slightly different than in the restaurant. Service was very good in typical Italian fashion. They were out of the buffalo mozzerella appetizer but we got burrata instead.. I had pasta with mushrooms. It was cooked perfectly and very fresh tasting. My wife had the Gnocchi which I sampled and they melted in your mouth with wonderful flavors.. Next time I will definitely try some fish or meat..
Put this one on your list if you are going for Italian.."

Dawat is a fine north Indian restaurant that also serves a couple of south Indian dishes as well. Located in Midtown East, Dawat is one of Manhattan’s finest Indian restaurants<br />that serves an eclectic array of interesting dishes.

"Food was excellent - some of the best Indian food we've ever had. Waiters are friendly and very forward.. They will keep pouring and pouring the beers until you scream uncle.. Yes, they are aggressive, upselling items on the menu.. The first minute we arrived and sat down we had agreed to sparking water, a mango lassi for my son and a chicken kabob appetizer.. All in all they had good intentions and we were well taken care of.. Take it in stride and enjoy the experience it's the way things are done in India.."

"First time dining at Sarabeth's CPS. Having just arrived in NYC, we were still getting our bearings in the city and ended up walking on 59th between 2nd and 3rd Ave.. Actually between 5th & 6thAve.. Whoo hoo! we eventually made it and got to work up an appetite and were pleasantly surprised.. Omlets and Eggs benedict were outstanding.. Best I've ever had..!
We ended up coming back for lunch a few days later it was so good..
Definitely add this to your list if you are visiiting and in the area..

"Went here based on OT recommendations and was not let down. Food and service were excellent.
We went on a Sunday which was an off day. They were out of the sea bass, but other than that a good dining experience..

"First time based on OT good reviews? The Charitos family’s three generations of chefs, I was hopeful for a good local find. We ordered Apps, Saganaki and wings. The saganaki was greesy and burnt on the bottom. The wings were over cooked and barely had any wind sauce on them. We ordered a few Pizzas and a Chicken Penne dish. The Chicken penne was the star of the night. Smoked chicken was tender and flavorful. The pizzas had way too much cheese and sauce lacked in flavor. My wife had Keneth Square pizza and there was barely a small handful of mushrooms on the pizza.. Beers - good selection.
The servers are slovenly looking folk. The waiter spilled a drink on floor and it remained on floor until we left. Sorry - not for us.. wont last

"Have been coming to Tex Mex for years. They have gone through menu changes and management changes over the years, but they always manage to do a really good job at keeping it all seamless to their customers. Consistency is the key to a great restaurant.
It's what keeps us coming back. .
Margheritas are fabulous. Fish tacos (fried), fajitas, pulled pork and brisket are some of our favorites... So many to list.."

Since 2009, Osaka has been a hidden gem. The menu has satisfied both ends of the spectrum, from customary to unique. Its personable and knowledgeable staff functions in a warm and hip atmosphere, providing an intimate and fun dining experience for any occasion. <br><br>Preparing traditional sushi, elegant nouveau dishes, and Hibachi style dining Osaka's innovative chefs integrate orthodox Japanese techniques with international flavors to create stunning, mouth-watering bites for an eclectic crowd. Seasonal and exotic fish, an excellent wine list, and reasonably priced lunch boxes serve every palate. Osaka is a promising destination for all to enjoy and share.

"This was our third time to Osaka in the last two years and food is always pretty good. My wife and son had Hibachi and I had sushi. The Hibachi chef was ok, I would say a 7 out of 10 on the entertainment scale. I tipped him $8. Thier food was good cooked well, flavorful, and a little salty.. We also had the calamari appetaizer and spring rolls which were both excellent. My sushi was very good, but I've had better. It could have been a littel more fresh.. I had a Kirin in a bottle whcih was very nice and cold. After which I ordered a Sapporo on draft and was dissapointed because it was warm.. Kind of killed the experience for me if I am honest. Overall this place is very pricey. May return for special ocassion.. May not"

"I had a business lunch at Harvest about 3 weeks ago and enjoyed it. Harvest is kind of like 'Seasons 52' in KOP.
I decided to bring the family for dinner this time. I had the Tuna which was pretty good, was cooked and prepared well. The sauce was lacking in any real flavor though. I expected a little more flavor. The crab sushi piece was served cold anot room temperature which is a turn off for me ans tells me it was not fresh. My wife had the short ribs with cornbread. They were over cooked and dry as well as the cornbread.. Drinks and beer menu is adequate but nothing special. Food here is overpriced and I expected more.. Chances are we will not be going out of our way to come back here...

"Excellent meal - food is always good here. The menu has changed a little. Fish tacos are one of my favorites. We have been coming to Tex Mex for many years now and have never had a bad meal. Service can be spotty, but it does not get in the way of the good food.. The hostess gets scatterbrained when it gets busy, but it does not get in the way of good food... Keep up the good work Tex Mex!"
