It was as usual nice and pleasant dinner time. It does remain with good quality of food. Salmon, File Mignon were delicious last night. Sides too and French Rose Wine. Server- Z.... - she was very good too. We used Valet parking, that is also nicely organized.

After receiving glowing recommendations for the Erie Cafe, I decided to try it out during my move to the neighborhood. It did not disappoint. The “small” NY Strip was grilled perfectly and tasted great! Received a comp dessert cut to upcoming birthday. Service was very attentive and kept the water and Sprecher’s root beer glasses full all night. Definitely will return often!

I made a reservation before seeing the ballet. Will we got there at 6 o’clock for a reservation which was 6 o’clock they told me that they were backed up and that would be 15 minutes. I explained that I made a reservation so that I would be sure that I would be seated in time to have dinner to go to the ballet. They quickly responded and said hold on just one second and then got us a table immediately. I was very happy that they handled that way being so close to the opera house. I really do believe you need to hold tight to your reservation times.

Food was good. Service was a little slow and it was disappointing that we cannot order any pizza or have any bread on Valentine’s Day of all days. But the vibe is nice. Will give them a second shot.
