I went here in July of this year with my dear friend who won the NY Lotto in ī99 and although the hotel is pretty impressive, the service in the bar was horrible and full of attitude. We sat down and about 20 minutes later someone came to ask us what we wanted. Thirty minutes later the drinks still hadnīt arrived so we complained. We got some kind of excuse that there were some bar problems. Funny how the table of the couples fondling each other nearby didnīt lack drinks and were served as we waited. Finally, the drinks came about an hour or more after we arrived. My friend said, "these will be on the house" and dismissed our unexperienced waitress-with-attitude. She came back and commented that yes, they were on the house. We already knew that they would be. Maybe it was a bad day but the service was absolutely horrible and if hadnīt been raining so hard we would have gone somewhere else.

I arrived at 5pm on a Sat. evening to meet two friends, one of whom was staying at the hotel. After sitting there staring at the drinks menu for 20 minutes, I had to go up and ask the hostess to send a waitress to take my order. Then it came 20 minutes later. The drink was watery and poor, and the waitress exuded terrible attitude. The surrounding tables were not bussed, and finally I just left the money for the tab, because she never came back and gave me a bill. When My friends arrived, we promptly left. Awful.

Great place to meet new people. Amazing atmosphere and reasonable drink prices.

The new menu (as of 2011) offers a great selection of fish like a red snapper and a branzino and focuses on an outstanding list of steaks that rival neaby Dylan's and Wolfgang's! Their signature Grand Margarita (served in more of a fishbowl than a glass) is always fantastic and the red wines by the glass they've added are very well chosen for the new meat-heavy menu. It's the best combination of a "steakhouse" menu without the traditionally stuffy steakhouse vibe. I'll definitely be back!
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
