I guess we were just expecting more, or something different. When i booked the table i was picturing a nice atmosphere and a lot of care on the food. The place is actually very big, dozens of tables, loud and cold too. The food was very disappointing, dishes like a portobello sandwich or deli-like cookies+milk are, in my opinion, not appropriate even on a lunch menu, or they should be done in a very original/gastronomic way. Our waitress was nice but forgot to give us the menu or bring deserts. Overall a very disappointing experience.
Tucked away underneath ABC Home, this place is a gem. From the outside, it doesn't look like much, but open the door, order a Bloody Mary (THE best I've had, hands down. And that's saying something), and enjoy the ambiance. The menu prices are steep, but worth it. Get the fluke appetizer and ask for bread and olive oil (sometimes the servers don't bring it automatically). The turkey sandwich might not seem like much, but it is incredible, and easy to split with a friend. It brings along some tasty fries as well.
I've been for brunch and dinner, and every time I have been there, it has been packed. I do not think you can make reservations, so make sure your whole party gets there at once. While you wait, keep an eye out for seats opening up at the bar. It's full service, and often much quicker than waiting for a table.
If impeccable service is for you, then Per Se fits the bill. At one point in the evening I counted 13 waitstaff buzzing around, each anxious to remove a place setting or glass just as you are finished. The views of the park are spectacular and we were rewarding with a beautiful full moon, too. Being an accomplished cook and..
Food was really good specially the pastas. Me and my partner were celebrating our anniversary, I didn't expect any special because I didn't say anything when I made the reservation. We still got a super nice corner table and our server Dana was very quick to notice when my partner handed me a card. When dessert came, an extra tiny set of delicious chocolate tiny cupcakes came with a candle and "happy anniversary" on the plate. Can't tell you how happy it makes me when service is top notch like this. Bravo! You all are killing it!
