Took mom there for Mother’s Day off of a recommendation from a friend. The food and service were both excellent. The great thing about RDV’s bottomless deal is that it’s 90 minutes from when you get there.. not just until brunch ends. So as long as you arrive before brunch ends.. you can enjoy your bottomless for 90 minutes. I definitely recommend giving them a try. More

This was an unexpected and delicious find. Having planned a Mother's Day outing last minute, Sylvia's and Red Rooster were unavailable. With a 6pm event at the Apollo, we were looking for something well-received in the neighborhood. We were so happy with the find! The food was delicious - best burger ever with fantastic sauce. Fries were also excellent. My husband and teenage kids were all very pleased. Highly recommend. More

Second time we headed to Harlem for a dining experience and it was well worth the trip. There is a very nice wine selection and the food was delicious and the portions generous. The onion soup was great on a cool wet night, the salads very fresh. It was a little noisy, but we got used to it. We will definitely go back. More

Came here for brunch on Mother’s Day. They had a live band performing old school hits. It was extremely energetic which my mother loved. She ordered the chicken and waffles and I had the steak and eggs. Both meals were delicious. Our server was new on the job which was charming but it did take some time to get his attention to refill drinks and for the check. More

American | Harlem, Manhattan

The chicken wings were good. I also ordered drinks (the wine was good, the whisky sour was horrible), the lobster Mac and cheese was absolutely disgusting (it was runny, didn’t have real cheese. It was the runny cheese you use when you make quick Mac at home out of the box) and the salmon was dry and burnt. I was so very disappointed with the food. The place was completely empty on a late Monday night so my large party of 8 felt like we had the whole place to ourselves to fully enjoy ourselves and we appreciated to find a place in Harlem that stayed open until 2 am on a week night but the food was horrible. I wouldn’t want to dine there again unless they get a new chef. More
