Cocktails were excellent. Food was good. We had the lamb meatballs, guac, burrata, and the bevet cut steak. All were good. Not a big fan of the crisps they gave with the guac, but everything else stands out. Great decor as well. Service was excellent as well. More

Contemporary American | Union Square, Manhattan

i like that it is in the neighborhood. The service was good. The ambience was okay. The bar is noisy, but the restaurant is quieter than many restaurants in this neighborhood. The prices are ok, but the menu is limited. The chicken parm was big and crispy but doesn't come with anything, so you have to order a side, which is annoying. I actually didn't love it, but if i wanted a nice restaurant nearby, i would return. More

Tables were far enough apart so you didn't feel like you had to yell to hear your own friends, but the music was a little loud (We hadn't seen each other in a while and wanted to catch up). The food was really good, the service was also very good. We weren't rushed at all, and wait staff checked in on us to see if we needed anything else. The prices were good. More
