2 Steps forward, 1 step back. You know how there are certain restaurants that go the extra mile and seem like this business is their lifelong calling? Well, unfortunately this is not the 1. In fact, ironically, those places often go out of business, but I digress. This is not 1 of those places. It has potential. The thin, tall sundress woman who greeted us seemed like she was up for the challenge. The menu is rather thin and my dinner guest said that their steak was only okay and certainly not worth the inflated price. I asked for a taste of avocado with my dish. The big boys typically give this to you as a courtesy or an obligatory $1. Benjamin's whopping $4 took my meal up to the next price bracket. I liked the diversity of the 2 light skinned minority waitresses. When I complimented the Manager on her kimono, she practically lectured me on how it was not. When I asked the waitress for an orange slice, in addition to not having any she got too familiar asking me what I needed it for. What ever happen to the customer is always right, even if my fashion jeopardy was slightly off. I actually wanted to like this place more for the several 2 steps forward, but I would be disingenuous to not warn people of the several 1 steps back. I read both the favorable and unfavorable reviews of the restaurant on this site. I figured I’d pay them the solid of letting them know of the site so one of them could perhaps write a response to any unfavorable reviews that were just miscommunications. The male manager who answered said he would get the female manager that I described only to return as if screening her calls. He was otherwise very polite cordial and professional. When I suggested that someone in his camp might want to write retorts to negative messages posted about the restaurant, he was not interested. Oh well.
As seasoned biochemistry researchers from Rockefeller University just across the water, our MD-PhD have frequented the Trellis often during the 2009-2010 season. Some of us live near Cornell Medical School near Rockefeller University; others live in new buildings on Main Street on Roosevelt Island, just down the road from the Trellis. Consistently, we've found delicious food, great live jazz, and a clean and bright bistro where chefs can cook anything you want, whether light, continental, or fast food. The menu has a nice variety of Italian dishes and Greek salads, soups, fish, meat, pastas and desserts. Service has always been excellent. Open 7 days, 5AM-11PM.
When I'm around Bleecker Street I always go to 1849. There's no other place like it. They've got great burgers, sandwiches, salads and Tex-Mex and other things like pasta or macaroni and cheese, all of the things that I love. Plus, they have great chicken wings for 20 cents each most days of the week. And they always seem to have some beer or drink special too. But I don't always go for the food. It's the best place to watch a game on one of the big screen TV's or just to hang out on the couches with friends. The crowd's good too. Always fun but never rowdy. I just wish this place was closer to where I live.
Maybe next time I'll take someone else's suggestion and order from the taqueria instead of reserving a table because the service was reallly slow. Not to mention, I felt like we were packed in there like sardines. I could literally reach my arm across and grab the centerpiece off the table beside me which meant we were also totally engulfed in the loud conversation from the party beside us. The food was great, but it felt like a tease when I saw how small the helpings were. I could have literally eaten three of my meals to myself. I wouldn't recommend coming here if you're A. starving and B. in a rush.
The serving portions are amazing and if you're looking for authentic Dominican food in Washington Heights then this is it. The best time to stop by would undoubtedly be afternoon versus evening, because that's when the place gets packed and on Sundays? Forget about it. The roasted chicken is phenomenal and the sweet plantains are some of the best I've tasted in the area. Definitely a go-to spot if you're in the area for Dominican fare. Good food, friendly staff and don't forget to save room for the mango milkshakes (and you'll definitely be bringing a doggy bag home with you too!)
I've been to Bottega Del Vino a handful of times and i have always had a superb experience. The food is very delicious and so is the wine. The desserts are to die for!!!!!! so when you are there make sure you leave some room. I recommend the tiramisu and the green apple creme brulee. Bottega has tiramsu that is just like they make in Italy. the service is great and so is the ambiance. Check out there gorgeous private party room/wine cellar down stairs on your way to the bathroom. Enjoy!!!!!!!!!
Stopped by this place this past Saturday actually on the way to another place,the music lights and fantastic hostess got me and my 5 friends in instead.we all ordered appetizers to do like a family style meal and try everything,guac and nachos were off the hook yummy!!had a fishbowl,a 65 oz Long Island ice tea and many margaritas and shots from what I could remember lol,great fun upbeat place with great drinks and service was friendly,will be back and will recommend to others.p.s get cherries!!!����
The place was very elegant and intimate. The staff greeted you at the entrance with the upmost professionalism. The waitress and bartender were very friendly and very prompt with following up. It has some of the best Mexican food in New York City. Patron shots were very chilled and very smooth. The music was a good variety of several different types. This is the perefect place to unwind after a long day at work or to go on a romantic date. Highly Recommend.
A group of us were in New York for the annual Hair show. We just stumbled upon this bar and were intrigued by the name. We had the best time that day - night. Our Bartender was Savannah and let me tell you the Food and drinks were just as good as the Ambiance this place oozes. We met strangers from different countries that we are still in contact with. I recommend this bar to anyone that is looking for great service and GREAT drinks. Happy stumbling
We ate at Spice Market to celebrate my 40th Birthday. We had an excellent meal in fantastic surroundings. The decor is amazing and such an interesting place. I mentioned on booking that the meal was a birthday treat and the staff greeted me with a "Happy Birthday" and at the end of the meal they brought us a slice of cake! This coupled with superb food made for a wonderful birthday. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone its brilliant.
