"The host staff seems disorganized and not on top of things. Seating our party of two took longer and was much more complicated than it needed to be. But our server was very smiley and friendly and pleasant. Crostinis were interesting and delicious and shareable, but the paella was a smaller portion than expected and the rice was too soupy. Chocolate souffle was waaaay too sweet -- no subtlety at all. Overall the place is nice, it's always crowded at lunch, but the food turns out to be just a teeny bit better than decent."

Ichiro offers the finest and freshest Japanese cuisine and sushi available on the UES. The dining room offers an elegant yet comfortable space with impeccable customer service. Ichiro is just an overall great neighborhood spot.

"Glad we made a reservation! The place was packed at 8pm on a Friday evening -- families with kids, couples on a date, large groups, many different kinds of folks. Service was efficient, although the shrimp hibachi bento took much longer than everything else. But our party was happy with all the dishes we ordered. Sushi was fresh, portions were good-sized, tables are close together but not suffocatingly so."

Casual yet upscale neighborhood restaurant with dining on 2 floors, 2 bars & a lovely garden with koi pond & fountain. Eclectic American menu featuring tapas, soups, salads, pastas, steaks, chops, fresh fish & several vegetarian options. Conveniently located in the heart of Chelsea.

"We were a group of six, seated by the large window on the upper floor on a perfect spring Saturday. Aside from a weird, unhospitable attitude from the host, we had a very pleasant and leisurely brunch experience. Everyone enjoyed their food: french toast, steak and eggs, duck quesadilla, and a delectable blackened shrimp and strawberry salad. The noise level was perfectly comfortable both for those wanting mellow conversation and for those with kids. Overall we were very pleased that we chose to eat here."

With 4 decades of experience, Wolfgang Zwiener didn't duplicate an exceptional steakhouse, he improved on it to make Wolfgang's Steakhouse exceptional. The porterhouse steak for one, two, four or more, is an outstanding choice. The atmosphere, expanded menu & professional service will appeal to even the most exacting diners. Wolfgang's is pleased to add this location in the heart of Midtown East.

"Competent middle-aged male waiters, big hunks of perfectly cooked meat, soft lighting, delicious side dishes -- in other words, a high-end steakhouse (except there are no checked tablecloths). The decor is unremarkable but relaxing, the desserts with homemade schlag were a nice finish to a big meal, the service was attentive. The hostess could have been friendlier."

"It's essentially a higher-end extension of the Equinox juice bar at Rockefeller Center, and diners have to walk through the juice bar (and people in workout attire) to get to the restaurant. A couple of tables by the window get a partial view of the Christmas tree and skating rink. The decor makes no impression, but the food is good and reasonably priced for the area. Service is efficient and friendly."

Monte's Trattoria is an Italian Restaurant located in the heart of Greenwich Village on MacDougal Street between West 3rd and Bleecker. This vintage Italian restaurant has existed since 1918 and the Mosconi family has continued its rich tradition. Chef Pietro Mosconi delivers authentic Northern Italian dishes from his region of Emilia-Romagna and is often seen in the dining room conversing with patrons. You'll find a friendly cozy atmosphere. The waiters and bartenders, whom you'll know by name, are always affable and ready to please. Dine as a couple for a romantic dinner, a small private party or as a large group while you take in the sites, sounds and tastes of Greenwich Village. Come to Monte's Trattoria Restaurant where you'll be treated like family!

"Seems to be quite a popular place; it was packed on a Sunday night and there's not much room to move. Tables are close together and not very big. Pasta dishes were satisfying enough but not outstanding; service was decent but not the most efficient."

Established in 2010.<br /><br />You could be sure to expect the best when you come to AnTalia, As the owners are a part of the daily operations. Service is being taken care of a manager who owns the restaurant, food is being deliciously prepared by a cook who also owns the restaurant. How can you go wrong?<br /><br /><br />AnTalia Restaurant serves authentic Turkish dishes in the midtown area. The pre-theater crowd loves there Prix-Fixe menu that serves 3 course meals for only 24.95. This lovely restaurant serves its guests in two floors. Second floor is a great way to have a private party or dine quietly.

"Pleasantly surprised to find this small, reasonably priced Turkish restaurant in tourist-trap midtown. Really good bread, great kebabs, very accommodating servers, lively lunch scene. We'll be back."

Classic Gotham Steakhouse located in the ultra chic Meat Packing District, established in 1868. The restaurant maintains it's strong relationships with their butchers, allowing them to get their first pick of beef. Nothing but prime dry aged meat - always has been and always will be. Winner of the 2006 Wine Spectator Award. Lobsters ranging in sizes from 4 - 13 lbs., sushi grade tuna, sockeye salmon, Colossal crab meat and shrimp so big they are referred to as small bananas.

"Not very memorable -- pleasant ambience (and festive enough, with Christmas decor) and decent service, menu is your standard steakhouse menu although we were disappointed that Brussel sprouts aren't among the side-dish options. Steaks were good, mushroom caps were good, asparagus was good, the creme brulee was good... but nothing was great."
