It was raining but the patio was warm and dry. We had Avocado toast, Florentine omelettes, French toast, egg sandwich, eggs with duck sausage; all guests reported delicious food with large portions. Bloody Mary was excellent, they were out of cardamom soda for lavender cocktail. There is street parking nearby, at least on a Sunday. 2 blocks from Chelsea market, close to little Island, Google HQ and many upscale shops. Note some streets nearby are closed for pedestrian traffic and not marked on Google Maps

The server was a kind, energetic and lovely person and really made our night. The food (especially the truffle fries!) and drinks were great too. I was just turned off by the mice running around our feet and around us. I know it is NYC and we were sitting outdoors on the street, but it was creepy and we were afraid they would touch us.

We didn’t order drinks for about 20 minutes, then when we did, we didn’t receive our drinks for another 25 or 30. The food was the same way ! It certainly isn’t a cheap place for what we paid for decent food and atmosphere and horrible service, sadly. Waiters should not be forced by management to do so much that they have to do their job poorly.

Sat us at a dirty table for 15 mins before someone in my party sought out the host about ordering his reply was hasn't a waiter come? I think it that was obvious if we had to walk across the restaurant to find you. His response should've been thank you for your patience. He was rude. We shouldn't have been sat at a dirty table that wasn't cleaned immediately and there were other tables that were clean. Our lovely waiter arrived a few mins later pondered the same thing and moved us to a clean table after that service was excellent. Work on your host he is the face of the restaurant, I understand being short staffed but he can use some work it made us want to leave honestly and we almost did have our wonderful waiter not arrived.

Everyone at the table ordered a salad. 1 person asked for dressing on the side, didn't receive. And 2 salads were completely missing their dressing. And with slower service, took a while to rectify.

Waitress disappeared for 45 minutes and never checked on us. This was a problem for al tables around me. Food orders were not correct when it finally came out so we didn’t even eat it. They took one bud light off our tab as a “courtesy”. SAVE YOUR TIME AND MONEY.

I was 6 minutes early for my 3:45pm reservation and she had me show her the confirmation and then told me she would see if she could find a table at 3:45 for me. I ended up leaving the restaurant because if that’s the service the hostess is giving who knows what we would receive inside. She was wearing an all white ensemble. Curly brown hair except the bottom part was a lighter color.

We had a reservation and didn’t get seated until 15 min after our time. We even showed up early so we waited in total 25 min to be seated. When we were seated, the waitress took so long to get to us that we already had our appetizer, Entrée, and dessert picked out. The woman delivering food also delivered our appetizer to the wrong table, then delivered us the wrong food! For a $100 dinner I would expect a lot better service than what we received. The food was also very average for a steak.

Our waitress came to bring water right away. Then basically ignored us for a very long time, even though it wasn’t busy at all. Then she took our order. We got our food at 1:10pm. Not exaggerating. Upon checking on our food with our waitress, we got the feeling that she didn’t care. She never checked on us before, and she only apologized once she realized her tip was going to be affected. We had tickets to go to the Whitney at 1:30pm, so we ate our food as fast as we could, and we did mention the issue to the manager who comped our coffees. So yes, thanks for the free coffee... Too bad, the food and ambiance are very nice, but they seem all over the place even though it was crowded at all.

I love the atmosphere, music, and decor and their heat lamps outside are extra warm! It is a bit expensive but great for a special occasion.
