The restaurant's fixed price lunch for $25 includes an appetizer, an entree (with a choice of any of its pasta dishes), and biscotti and coffee. The appetizers include salads, soups, and mussels (my personal favorite). The entrees include the fish of the day, veal, chicken,...More

We had a really nice lunch here after a couple of hours at the Met. The prix-fixe lunch initially looks great value, but once you have added on the $9 bottled water and $10 desserts it quickly adds up. The food was really good and...More

I've eaten here twice, with a regular (well over 60 - closer to 90) and have been underwhelmed twice. The service is haughty but not attentive. Prices are high for what is not close to fine cuisine. The tuna tartare appetizer is a gooey mass...More

Oh yes!! The price-fixed lunch is an absolute bargain in this fine dining establishment. It's the best way to get a sense of the calibre of the offerings that will have you making dinner reservations before you leave. The mussles were one of the best...More

We had heard good things about this place but it did not deliver. It is definitely catering to the neighboorhood crowd but they did make you feel welcome with people mostly in the 60+ range. The menu is a bit limiting and the food was...More

This is an old, established restaurant that never - NEVER - fails to impress and delight. Reservations are recommended, as it is quite popular, although with many New Yorkers spending time in the Hamptons it's not so challenging to get a reservation in the summer....More

Totally disagree with Westsider. This quite little Italian restaurant is wonderful in one of the best neighborhoods in NYC. Atmosphere was great. Service extremely attentive. We split two appetizers; lump crabmeat risotto and grilled octopus. Both great. Main course were Dover Sole and Branzino. Both...More

Mediocre food w/very high prices. A "special" of osso bucco was little pieces instead of one pieces on the bone. The preceding ceasar salad was cafeteria food. Do not go.

easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural

livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth
Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of
the nation's most famous attractions in a single
stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the
Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the
