The quality and quantity of the food was disappointing. The manager/owner? who sat in the corner with his laptop taking up a great table could not be bothered to get up and greet us when we walked in & we were the first guests in the place. ?A bowl of warm milk with truffle oil & two oysters thrown in does not make an oyster chowder. ?After our first course had been cleared, we waited 25 minutes for the second course. We hardly saw the poor server who was alone with tables upstairs & downstairs and seemed to be the bartender as well. Again, manager/owner could not be bothered to check on us. Finally, my 2 small scallop sliders arrived were lackluster. My husband's lunch entree ?(mushroom truffle flatbread) was good but normally it is a lunch appetizer, so a bit of a scam offering it as a lunch entree.
As we began to leave... I waited to see if Manager/owner would have the sense to address us, but of course, he was consistent in not caring one bit about the patrons. And now I know why everyone who walked in that day had an open table or living social deal. Good luck thriving in this economy. One of the worst dining experiences I have had in NYC !
