    Nothing makes us feel like we’ve made it like splurging on a power lunch of lobster linguine alongside Midtown’s movers and shakers, in a dining room adorned with Andy Warhol portraits. NBD. Read more

    The veal bolognese, tomato and mozzarella and chocolate dessert were really good. Great restaurant week menu.

    Excellent breakfast spot in a classy environment. Still mourning the older Lever House incarnations but this place is worth a spot on your rotation

    Bronzino was excellent. Lentil soup outstanding. Dover sole was great. Service was fair at best, and very expensive. You can find food just as good at better prices with better service.

    The salmon with the salmon egg and black lentils was the best dish. Excellent.

    Certainly not an original tip but the original Warhol's are really cool. Pricey and fancy place but that's ok because the food delivers! Dover sole was perfectly prepared.

    Beef carpaccio was very good with nice mustard and parmigiana reggiano. Good choice.

    We had an over the top deliciously tasting 3 course menu for not even 40 Bucks. Very friendly and attentive staff.

    This place was nothing short of amazing. Every dish was exquisite. It's on the pricier side, but you're getting what you're paying for.

    Always intrigued by the outdoor space for a post work watering hole- the mark up is outrageous and not worth it. Stick to St Barth's if you require vitamin D

    Quiet bar in a lovely restaurant - great outdoor space in the shade during the summer. Drinks aren't cheap.

    Salmon carpaccio was okay but the salmon roe added little. Not the best choice.

    Desserts were mediocre. This chocolate hazelnut cake was the best but not outstanding.

    Under it's former guise, this was a stunning NYC venue. The gauche introduction of carpet, chandeliers, random Warhol and "Spotted Pig"-style pot plants suggest a stylistically troubled reincarnation.

    Great spot for cocktails and even better place for dinner! Ask for the Double Cross pear martini with the baby pears!
