"We are never disappointed when we dine here. And lately we've discovered their Thin crust whole wheat pizza. It's much better than I expected."

Chef Jean-Georges brings relaxed elegance to the West Village with Perry St - awarded three stars by the New York Times. <br /><br />Jean-Georges’ son, Cedric Vongerichten, helms the kitchen, creating dishes that reflect his own keen instinct for balancing flavor and texture with an exquisite blend of French, American, and Asian influences and ingredients. The menu is inspired by the season, centering on the local market at Union Square. <br /><br />Please visit us http://www.perrystrestaurant.com for menus and more information.

"It's tucked away in a non-touristy spot, with understated signage. The lighting is subdued (actually, a bit too low for our liking) and the decor signals sophistication. The service is friendly yet professional. The menu choices, the food, the presentation all tell you that there is real thinking going on behind the scene. Taken all together, this is what a superior New York restaurant should be."

Located on Covert Avenue on the border of Floral Park and Stewart Manor, Park Place Restaurant & Bar has quickly emerged as one of Long Island's top restaurants. Open seven days a week Park Place appeals to everyone --- couples out for a date night, families celebrating any occasion or friends meeting up for a drink after work. The modern decor, innovative cuisine and welcoming staff has many in the community singing its praises. <br><br> Veteran restaurant owners Carlo & Sergio DeCiantis, along with new comers Matthew Tesoriero and Patrick O'Halloran have teamed up with chef Anthony Martarana to produce a menu that puts a new spin on old favorites. Favorites include Tuna Tacos Tar-Tar, Spinach & Artichoke Wontons, Lobster Mac & Cheese, Steak Frites and for dessert ... Funnel Oreo's (Oreos dipped in funnel cake batter and deep fried). <br><br> The semi-private party room provides a perfect location for baby showers, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, funeral luncheons.

"If I lived nearby, I would be happy that this place exists. And I'd probably be a regular; good food, good service, fun atmosphere. But I don't live nearby, and so I have to say that it simply is not good enough to warrant a trip from any distance."

As sleek as a 1930s ocean liner, yet as relaxed as a dinner on the shore, the Oceanaire provides the perfect setting to enjoy Ultra-Fresh seafood, flown in daily from around the world. Sip a Sidecar in the lounge, sidle up to the oyster bar, or kick back in a horseshoe booth before diving into a sea of Ultra-Fresh fish, including steak-cut Alaskan halibut, seasonal favorites like fresh Copper River salmon or hard-to-find delicacies like true Dover sole or bluefin tuna. Our daily-printed menu will guide you, a wine list as deep as the sea will seduce you, and the world's freshest seafood awaits you at the Oceanaire.

"Our first visit to Oceanaire met our high expectations -- fairly high prices, but matched by excellent food, good service, and a subdued, "rich" atmosphere."

STK artfully blends two concepts into one—the modern steakhouse and a chic lounge. A large central lounge area is furnished with creamy leather banquettes and textured crocodile tiles, and is surrounded by an elevated dining room for more formal dining. Theatrical lights illuminate each table, while a DJ creates an energetic vibe throughout the entire space. STK Atlanta is located at 1075 Peachtree Street in the heart of Midtown Atlanta. Executive Chef Mark Alba mans the kitchen of the two-story restaurant situated adjacent to the Loews Hotel. As anticipated, steak is the main attraction. With a female-friendly mindset, STK offers small, medium and large cuts of meat, as well as naturally raised options and market fresh fish entrees. Aside from steak, signature items include Parmesan Truffle Fries; Lil’ BRGs; Shrimp Rice Krispies; Sweet Corn Pudding; and Jump Lump Crab Salad.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

"Having been to an STK in NYC, I had high expectations. And the (very dark) place was 70% full on a Tuesday evening, so this place clearly fills a niche. But there were a string of service errors--including whisking away plates while 2 of the 4 of us were still eating. But the worst thing was that my strip steak (I think it was called "loin") was so tough I could barely chew it. And my wife's fillet mignon was tasteless. All 4 of us agreed that we are unlikely to return."

"Just off 5th Avenue, up a flight of stairs, sits a mini-vacation spot. You truly get a tropical vibe as soon as you enter, and even though it's all just pretend, it's fun. The food and service are fine -- nothing you would make a special trip for, but certainly good enough that no one is likely to complain. My suggestion is -- if you are in the nabe, give it a try. Most likely, you will be glad you did."

"All the food was very good, but just not quite up to the expectations that had been set by previous reviewers. But go here for the scene -- it's a beautiful spot, not like most in its category. And all dishes are presented with care and artfulness. One small demerit, however, for staff clearing plates before everyone finished eating."

Savor dishes rich with authentic Italian influences at Wolfgang Puck’s first Italian restaurant, Lupo at Mandalay Bay. With dishes inspired by Rome and its neighboring regions, the menu features a contemporary blend of tastes from the old country. Indulge in wood-oven baked pizzas, homemade pastas, savory seafood and enticing entrees. The restaurant boasts exhibition pizza, antipasto and dessert stations, a glass-enclosed area where fresh pasta is made daily and a spacious bar in the center of the restaurant. The open and airy dining room provides the perfect setting for people watching without leaving the hotel.
