We enjoyed this fancy restaurant… The waiters were classy and kind… The martinis were made to specifications… The carpaccio was delightful… And I would recommend trying the short rib entrée… All in all this was a special evening and we will visit again…

What a great surprise/experience! We decided to have a late lunch with no expectations the restaurant was empty when we arrived only one table... We were greeted by a very nice and friendly waiter that made us feel very comfortable. He suggested us the burrata and a giant shrimp from South Africa that were absolutely delicious. As main course we... More

Came here for dinner on a Saturday night. Reservation was at 9pm but was available for earlier times. Book on Open Table. Restaurant is very clean. Typical NYC parking outside. We used a car service. Staff was friendly and helpful. It was a little loud as we are in the main dining room downstairs. Didn't explore the upper level. Not... More

Went here for a business dinner on a Saturday night. Didn't do my research, so I was blown away right away by the service and attention from staff. Had pasta for starter (half order), bacon-wrapped beef for main and a desert the like of which I have never tasted before (an odd log sprinkled with flakes of nuts) The wine... More

We've come for our Christmas party several times and they do an incredible job both with apps (arrancini, tuna tartare, shrimp, etc) and the main dinner. Family style service (except the entree) and two pastas and two salads. Wonderful wine. The service team was close to one per person in our party. A great venue!

Beautiful ambiance, a spiral wooden staircase, gorgeous function rooms. Came here for a work dinner and was NOT disappointed! The passed appetizers were all amazing, especially the mini beef sliders. Pasta was mouthwatering and the filet and Chilean sea bass were out of this world! And then? Desserts! Perfection on a plate.

I am not a huge fan of the pretentious meat packing but when my best friend suggested this place, I knew we had to try it. The service was one of the best in this city and we loved the atmosphere. Yes, it is pricey but the food is excellent and the service and ambiance make it worth it. I'd... More

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
