This is a nice place to dine before or after a Broadway. With reservations you are seated promptly. I love the open kitchen and clear view throughout the restaurant. When walking through the restaurant to our seats I really enjoyed seeing 'wine cellars'. I ordered...More

We come here at least twice a year when we are in NYC and have never been disappointed over five years of dining. The Dover sole served tableside is exquisitely.

Came here for a pre-theatre meal and chose from the relatively large prix fixe meal menu. Food was fresh and awesome, service was top notch, friendly and efficient. Quite a happening bar scene that Wednesday night as well. Recommended.

Went with a group of friends for early drinks and apps. The service was unbelievable. Will definitely return simply for the service. The place was packed, so obviously a popular spot.

If pricing is important, go elsewhere. If decor, service and a superb dining experience is your desire, go here. Top notch service, gorgeous venue and best swordfish ever. Prompt, courteous and squeaky clean. Zero negatives.

Telepan and Oceana... what could be better. An inventive Chef who creates delicious dishes that delight the eye, caress one’s taste buds, and arouse one’s olfactory receptors. Need I say more. The Seafood Tower makes Poseidon salivate while crunchy calamari brings a smile to Nemo....More

As I remember there is a step behind the the hostess station as you enter the dining room. I don’t remember if there is a ramp at the other side of the bar area. I would call and verify access.
