The food was excellent, the service was excellent from beginning to end, and the ambiance was great. They were very helpful in getting us to our show on time, but did not rush us. Would highly recommend this for a very high quality experience.

I ordered the burger because I wanted something quick to eat. It was one of the worst burgers I have ever had. It was the equivalent to two McDonald’s patties on a bun. I would definitely go someplace else, but maybe the burger is t this places specialty.

Food, service and ambience were remarkably fine on this occasion. The chicken under a brick entree deserves special mention for the quality of the meal. Wine selections are few but provide sufficient choice to go with the menu. Desert was traditional cheesecake and was accompanied by a moscato d’Asti.

Visiting NY with 2 teens and took former teacher to brunch. Perfect mix of ambiance but we all felt comfortable and could hear one another! Pricey but it’s NYC. And awesome food!

First time visit
Every item (4) we ordered could have been very good but unfortunately they missed the mark
The calamari started out frozen rather then fresh
The lobster roll roll was less then fresh and should have been toasted
The breading on the cauliflower was too thick
Lastly, the eggplant in the eggplant parm was almost raw
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!

The bartender was great!!

Haven’t been to this place for a few years - I thought the service was getting bad and there’s so many choices in nyc! Sadly the service is still mediocre, and the food is standard fare described with marketing speak on the menu, so nothing special. I think this place attracts a lot of the tourists staying at the hotel.

Bistro style restaurant. We had the mussels and steak frites. Very good and tasty. Nice music in the background and good service from the waiter. Perfect place when you want something tasty but not complicated.

brought a visiting colleague from Singapore in for Brunch. I had the Benedicdt of the Day (Crab and avocado) and she had a burger with truffle fries. Both were excellent. I love the Chicken and Waffles here but there is always so much food and I knew we were meeting someone for early dinner so I dared not have those. Whenever I visit the city I enjoy staying across the street at the Lexington Autograph mostly to have brunch at Lexington Brass :)

I love that they don't rush their customers to leave - they aren't constantly interrupting the guests to see how they are doing, but they quietly observe and come when it seems appropriate.
Food is terrific and aside from moderate noise, I love this restaurant

We were staying at the Lexington hotel across the street, so we figured it was convenient to grab a bite. What a pleasant surprise it was!! Great atmosphere!! Food was very good!! Very pleased with our experience there. If I’m the area again, I would definitely return or recommend to others.

Great food, great service, but the food is very expensive. We Had 1 appetizer, French fries, 2 drinks, and eggplant Parmesan- shared it among 3 people and our total bill was over $100! I think $12 for fries is very expensive!

Nice place for an enjoyable dinner. Varied menu contains something for everyone. We wanted a light dinner and went with appetizers. The Mac and Cheese was OK — cheddar cheese sauce did not have lots of flavor. Also had the Shaved Brussels Sprouts which was a surprising treat. The salad was hot which took me aback at first but it was quite flavorful and an interesting mix of textures.

Have only been here for breakfast and it is a decent breakfast spot... nice ambiance, but way overpriced for what it is. $80 with tip for an omelette, waffle, bacon and 2 coffees is too much. Just know that going in.

Everything was great. Just had a bit of a wait to get seated ( with a reservation). Also it took quite a long time to get our food, but we weren’t in a huge hurry so it was ok. But always love this place!
