Fantastic restaurant with excellent food and excellent service. I've eaten in both the dining room and the bar room and both are good. The dining room is on par with the best restaurants in New York. The tasting menu is a must. The bar room is more relaxed and has a less expensive menu. The food isn't quite as out-of-this-world, but still delicious. The beef en-crute is incredible and definitely recommended.

Fantastic every time I go. Innovative presentation, fresh flavors, top service. One of my favorites despite the price.

I was lucky enough to have their tasting menu and the many courses were all perfectly executed, French inspired, and modern. It's the first time I've had foie gras and superbly fancy cheeses, along with plenty of other foods I cannot name. Additionally, the bar room has a great sampling of their dishes and drinks, without committing to expense of an entire tasting menu. It's a very elegant experience, with an outdoor view of the statues in the garden and one my favorite, more upscale stopping spots.

Did not appreciate that well the way we were treated by the staff while trying to get a table. They found excuses not to give us a table, and this was solely based on our outfit. I personally did not expect that from the place since I have been there a few times. For this reason I give only one star.

Fabulous food, top notch and attentive service. I attended for dinner (did the 4's). Definitely pay them a visit if you're ever in NYC. The dessert cart is amazing!

Everything was good. From the caviar to the foie gras to beef and the desserts.

Choose a 3-course, 4-course or tasting menu. There's a list of about 20 items - cold app, hot app, and entree. Regardless of what you choose, the first items will be appetizer portioned and the final one will be entree sized. The tasting menu was basically a pre-selection of items on the main menu, so it didn't seem worth it to go that route, I opted for the 4-course where I could choose whatever I wanted. Food: - The included amuse bouche received was very good - a nice pea soup with a thin circular cracker with shrimp crema. - Beet and pear salad - with granola and yogurt - pretty good - Sweet potato gnocci - circle of cheese atop each piece of gnocci, with a nice sauce - Sucking Pig - it's pork 3 ways - it looked like pork belly, medallion of loin, and some strips of porchetta. It came with small white turnips and some pieces of really yummy white potato or carrot. - Pre-dessert/palate cleanser - a mini ice cream cone with tomato rosemary sorbet; very nice - Dessert - Giaduja ice cream was really rich and good, and it came with a flan type thing that was white on the outside, with a chocolate center. Topped with some really yummy, nutella flavored, soft granola-like mixture. Overall, very good and filling. Take your time to enjoy the meal - our party stayed there over 3 hours. Service: - Very good, friendly, very helpful with answering questions. - They serve you in a synchronized fashion. Ambiance: - The dining room is right next to the MoMA garden. Went there for dinner, so not as much to see, but they let us take a couple photos on the terrane. Would go again for lunch for the nicer view. Drinks: - I got one of the cocktails from the bar - it was good, but not particularly strong.

It was open on Sunday in July. Good food, reasonable price at the bar room.
