"We were looking for a casual brunch on a Monday. We liked the online menu at Eats so decided to try it. It was a little early for lunch for us and we were initially disappointed that their brunch menu is only available on weekends. There was an omelet on the menu which we both tried. It was delicious. We liked the menu selections for a later lunch and plan to return to this restaurant."

"After watching a segment on tv about barbecue, my husband and I had a craving for barbecue. We were planning on having a late lunch so we hopped on the bus to go to Neeley's. we have been to this restaurant numerous times, often with friends. We were pleasantly surprised to see a price-fixe lunch menu. Everything was delicious. We are looking forward to going back."

Husband-and-wife co-owners Michael Susy Glick welcome you to their contemporary steakhouse. Conveniently located only two blocks from the 92nd Street Y, Parlor Steakhouse features the type of elegant, stylish interior that Upper East Side residents have long desired in their neighborhood. Both the restaurant’s menu and its décor appeal to a broad range of diners: from young couples meeting for a drink and solo guests grabbing a casual dinner at the bar, to foursomes and business diners looking for a delicious meal in an attractive setting. Parlor Steakhouse’s menu offers items at many price points and encompasses both steakhouse classics and a wide range of creative preparations, particularly seafood dishes, courtesy of Executive Chef Lucas Billheimer, a veteran of Lure Fishbar (and Park Avenue Café). What’s more, Parlor Steakhouse features a 40-seat private event room downstairs that includes its own bar and a working fireplace. We look forward to seeing you soon.

"We are never disappointed at this restaurant. Since it was the end of restaurant week we invited friends to join us. They had not been to the Parlor before. While the restaurant week menu was attractive, three of us ended up ordering off the main menu. The food was delicious, as always. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. The food was delivered to our table without a long wait. We always have a good experience here."

Le Colonial is a truly delightful culinary experience. Like stepping into French Colonial Southeast Asia, this two-story restaurant, designed by Greg Jordan, consists of a main dining room with louvered wall panels, colorful tile floors, and vintage photos of Vietnam. Upstairs is an elegant, but lively, lounge serving a full dinner or just appetizers and cocktails. The lounge serves as an ideal setting for private parties and business dinners. Chef Ronald Wingwee Hsu serves an authentic Vietnamese menu with an emphasis on fresh seafood, meats, and vegetables.

"This was our fifth visit to this restaurant. We took friends with us. No one was disappointed. The restaurant week menu is varied. The portions are not skimpy. The specialty cocktails are always interesting-and delicious-like the food. We look forward to returning to this restaurant."

In addition to being the venue for countless Private Parties and Special Events, Hi-Life's award-winning 1930's decor, and casually elegant atmosphere has been the back-drop for numerous fashion shoots, movie scenes and television shows. (Including the 1998 film "Hi-Life" starring Eric Stolz and Darryl Hannah.) <br />Hi-Life's diverse menu and extensive booth and banquette seating make us a great choice for groups and parties of 10-200! Whether for a sit-down Dinner Party of 10, a Buffet Brunch, or Cocktail Party with passed hors d'oeuvres for 200, Hi-Life will customize a package that suits your needs and budget.<br />

"Hi-Life is a neighborhood place that is reliable. The menu variety is good. Going for appetizers and a drink in the summer is very relaxing-as long as the "entitled" people aren't there ignoring the other patrons and doing whatever they please."

"Cesca is one of those rare restaurants that makes you want to return again and again. The food is outstanding. The service is impeccable. The chef does some unusual things with common foods. The warm mozzarella with peppers and toast points was delicious. The carrot appetizer was outstanding. The fried cauliflower appetizer was like nothing we had ever eaten-so light and tasty. The entrées were also outstanding.They are sensitive to food allergies. I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation."

For 15 years Lusardi's of Larchmont has been one of Westchester County's top restaurants for any kind of dining - be it casual to special occasion. The menu's homemade cuisine shows a Mediterranean leaning and a particular expertise with seafood, eclipsed perhaps only by the incredible pastas. This kind of dining experience can really only consistently be found in Italy...or on Palmer Avenue in Larchmont. Visit our other locations: Chat 19, Moscato Scarsdale, and Chat American Grill in Scarsdale.<br /><br />

"A friend and I celebrated my birthday at Lusardi's. We like to eat at this restaurant since the service is excellent, as is the food. We often go to Lusardi's for special occasions as well as dinner just for a girls' night out."

"This restaurant never disappoints. The service is outstanding. The food is prepared in interesting ways. The tables are far enough apart that you don't have to listen to the neighboring table conversation. While this is not an inexpensive restaurant, the quality of the food and service is worth it."

"We dine at Atlantic Grill from time to time since we live in the neighborhood. The food is always delicious and the service is very attentive. This last dining experience was for Sunday brunch with friends. We were not disappointed."

"My brother and niece were in town from California. My niece had never had lobster. My brother and his daughter ordered the 2 pound lobster. My brother enjoyed it but his daughter liked my bronzino better, so we switched plates. The wait staff was very attentive and helpful with meal selections and descriptions. The only drawback was the air conditioning was not working well and the restaurant was not as cool as we would have liked in spite of the ceiling fans."
