Since 1980 the favorite spot of society's movers and shakers has remained a regular stop on foodie itineraries. The management pays close attention to service and consistency, a big reason for its longevity. Best sellers include Maine lobster risotto and traditional Wiener schnitzel, along with such inspired creations as crispy veal sweetbreads with wild mushrooms and asparagus. Depending on your mood, the champagne-caviar bar can serve up appetizers or desserts. The place
has an extensive, award-winning wine list with many by-the-glass options. A pianist plays nightly from 7 to 9:30, and the lively crowd gracefully sways to the music.

People gush over the food here, but I don't get it. Atmosphere was average and the service was friendly, albeit flaky: he seemed to be in a nyquil-like fog and forgot one side order entirely, and asked to be remimded to deliver the doggy bag of bland, gooey steak tartre. Lunch menu doesn't specify if half the items on there are appitizers, sides, or entree-portioned salads/sanwiches. The three small shrimp in the shrimp salad with curry viniagrette
were good. I was stuffed. It's expensive, the menu is small, and the food is good, but not great. I can cross this place off my list- it's no big whoop.

Don't waste your money in a place that truly shows you in many ways how they do NOT appreciate your business! Waiters are rude, food is average....Will spend my $800 elsewhere next time!!
