I was warned by a friend who expense account dined there a few days before my reservation. "Dont waste your time or even think about it" was the message.
Intrigued by some great reviews, I kept the res.
It was one of the worst dinners I have had in New York.
I'll try to keep it short...waiter asks for your drink order and we ask for a glass of chardonnay at which point he asks if we want the single glass for two or the double (17 vs. 34)
so unbelievably pretentious
to make matters worse, they "decant" your glass in a silly little pitcher where wine is kept for 6 seconds
food was horrible (i was hoping for an unexpected talented english chef)
tuna was not edible and had to be returned (i have probably done this 2 times in 15 years in manhattan)
they gave me steak in its place which tasted like it was marinated in rasberry...AWFUL
two people i was with could not finish entrees
dessert not much better...earl grey sorbet???? (c'mon now)...horrible
restaurant was sooo bad i feel bad even saying how awful it was...skip it at all costs...it is expensive, staff is surly and it is horrible
