The service was IMPECCABLE and so was the food. More than enough space to make everyone comfortable. Definitely going back

Food was OKAY in taste and overpriced in my opinion but you’re paying for the view/ambiance as well, so that was expected. The waitress was great can’t say the same about the hostess who had an issue with us requesting an EMPTY outdoor table. She was extremely rude and unwilling to accommodate us. Not sure if hostesses receive extra tips/some sort of commission for seating guests indoor but this one sure did act like her life depended on not allowing us to dine outdoors. I’d give my experience a 2.5/5. I probably won’t be back because I just cannot tolerate the rudeness.

No complaints other than gratuity was included for a party of two and we were overcharged for drinks. Ambiance, food and service were all great otherwise.

I asked the server for a Paella with no Chorizo and it arrived with Chorizo we don't eat pork so it was so disgusting to have to find pork on your plate after have a spoon of it... horrible they didn't even apologize. Manager didn't even show up to the table to apologize.

It was such an amazing experience. I took my Assistant Managers out to show them appreciation! They were so happy and that made me so happy. The server was amazing as well and very professional... Every time I go there I love it. Just one thing the hostess needs to have a little more energy greeting customers but everything else was amazing! Thank you again for everything.

The place is very good, beautiful, clean and the service is very good and friendly. Social distancing is being respected. The view of Manhattan is awesome.
Front desk could be more friendly, but it’s okay.

Food and ambience were awesome. However, didn’t like the trickery of the server. We were given options for still or sparkling water, so we opted for still. They didn’t tell us it was an $8 bottle of water that wasn’t listed on the menu. We were expecting regular tap water, which wasn’t given as an option. Normally I’d just discount the tip a bit and call it a day, but then they automatically added the gratuity without telling us. Restaurant was good, but deceptive service.

Food was good but way overpriced and for my small group of 4 they included the gratuity - I've only ever seen that with groups of 6 or more. Thankfully our service was fine and we had no complaints aside from the fact it took us 15 minutes+ to get the check.

We wanted to sit outside but were told we had to wait and possibly not be able to sit near the water views. So they sat us indoors instead. The waitress was super friendly. Food was very flavorful.
The food was overpriced.
Lots of people
Beautiful setting
Beautiful views
