"I love the setting of this restaurant -- from the fine linen napkins -- to the wood-hewn tables, it is a delight for the senses. Its location in the Chelsea Market (actually you enter from outside) is convenient and trendy. The food which includes many healthy options (e.g., fresh-made juices) is always delicious, though the portions are small. I've enjoyed the salads, soups and meat dishes -- all are excellent. Nice time, I will try the pasta which is their specialty. The service is prompt, but they can lose track of you after you get your plate. The place is noisy when the crowds descend, so try to get there early if you want to have a real conversation over your exceptional food."

"We had a lovely experience as a group of friends and family for early Saturday dinner before our show at the Public Theater. The service was prompt and attentive. The place is just lovely. Our mixed drinks were delicious; the prixe fixe dinner allowed us to explore a range of dishes and everyone enjoyed what they had. We will surely be back. Everyone raved about it the day after. Always a good sign!"

"The service and food at MP Taverna seem to have taken a step down recently. We were served an appetizer of white anchovies in an unimaginative and tasteless manner. While the anchovies were good, they needed a counter point and not just pita bread (which seems to be the new standby there). A little salad, a veggie would have made the dish much more palatable. The other dishes were fine, but the trout was a bit dry. Actually the vegetable dishes and sides are the best thing about the place right now. It will be a while before we go back. It was good but not the way it used to be."

"I enjoyed the prix fixe lunch at The Smith. I was celebrating with a friend who chose the spot. He is a meat eater and enjoyed his steak; I am a vegan and had less choice of dishes. We had a good time and a good (not great) lunch food wise. Our server was very helpful and accommodating. The wine list is very limited and she was patient in helping me find a wine I could enjoy. It would be nice to have more varied options food and wine wise."

"We enjoyed our meal at the Brass Rail. We would have also enjoyed some lighter, more vegetarian fare. While they offer salads, they have candied nuts and fruits in them, so they really are not very healthy. (The Caesar salad is terrific, but it has cheese and ham which are part of its wonderful taste. If you are looking for a good, meaty meal, this is an excellent venue. The service is perfect."

"We always have a great meal at MP Taverna. They were very accommodating as we shifted our reservation to later as people couldn't arrive as originally planned. One of our party had an accident at the table -- dropping olive oil on the floor. They were attentive and helpful in the clean-up. The wait staff was attentive most of the time as well; twice the manager checked in to make sure everything was as we wanted it. So the service and food made for a great experience."

"This time everything was perfect: food and service were excellent and noise level was moderate. The octopus salad and grilled fish were perfectly done and the dessert of spice and parsnip cake was amazing! This place gets better and better. The manager and wait staff were attentive to our needs."
