I never would have found this spot unless I was searching for BYO restaurants uptown. And I'm very happy that I did! My spicy rabbit sausage was fantastic (I wolfed down all three!). And my date's chicken in a citrus sauce was really juicy and well cooked. The space is small, but comfortable and the service was welcoming. I really appreciate the cozy, neighborhood feel. The prices are all reasonable and the fact that it's BYO keeps the bill even more affordable.

Unbelievable restaurant! Quietly tucked away in the Upper West Side, great music and friendly staff greet you with a warm smile at the door. Organic food and wonderfully presented dishes add to the overall charm of the restaurant. Food was easily some of the best in the city. Try and get there before this place get discovered and remember to bring your own booze!

Down to earth, delicious, plus you get to make friends with everyone in the joint. Hope nobody else finds out about this gem,. or else we'll never be able to get a seat again....

Staying in Morningside Heights to avoid the tourist crowd, we stumbled on this tiny place. Sitting as close as if we were on the subway at rush hour, the vibe was just perfect. The limited menu did not matter, because everything we tried exceeded our expectations. What a unique, cozy place! If you are from out of town, (we are from California Wine Country) this place is worth searching out!

Nice room with nice people, feels like you are invited to a friend's or relative's house. Good homey food, not much selection, but tasty.
