Great food and service with a lounging atmosphere before their club, Temple, gets going. Starting with the fried wontons (served with chipotle, mango, and mint dipping sauces) and continuing all the way through to the best banana coconut bread pudding you'll ever have, all 8 plates we shared for Friday night dinner were delicious, and Danielle was an excellent server. We'll definitely be back, next time to see if other items on the menu are as tasty as the ones we had on our inaugural visit!

We originally came here for restaurant week however, I couldn't help doing the 8 course tasting menu. This is the perfect amount of food not too much, not too little. We came here in somewhat of a celebration of my birthday bringing a 2005 Scarecrow (I was so excited) however, when the sommelier opened the bottle it was CORKED! We didn't even think about a back up bottle. I thought I was going to cry. Besides this little hiccup the dinner was wonderful. Christopher (the sommelier) was awesome and extremely helpful, he suggest a 2000 Graves which was a very good to replace the corked bottle. Our menu consisted of: sea scallops tempura, cauliflower, passion fruit, edamame, almonds tataki of american wagyu skirt,moroccan spiced vegetables heirloom beets, burrata,wild arugula, aged balsamic, new olive oil jidori chicken, "cobb ", blue cheese, avocado, baby gem lettuce 10 oz prime n.y. steak, kobe shortrib, figs, arugula, horseradish, hazelnuts 8 oz filet mignon, padron peppers, creamed corn, chantrelles, baby chives (and a moi fish dish that was recently added to the menu this was spectacular!) nutella custard, popcorn ice cream, toast streusel, passion fruit Overall, we had excellent service with amazing food. (I am still kind of sad about the scarecrow though) :P

Been here twice and never had a hard time getting in the door. Doormen have always been very nice and friendly -- maybe i caught them on a good day? No idea. Both of the times I had a really great time. The drink prices were a bit steep, but who cares?! It doesnt matter how much you spend as long as you're having fun!! Enjoy the night and worry about the credit card bill later. But I do agree there are alot of pretentious and rude ppl that go here. They walk around thinking they are the sh*t! But i gotta admit... after a few drinks I do walk (or stumble) around thinking I'm all that too. haha :)
