I have been here perhaps twelve times and cannot fault this beautiful place, the most elegant way to eat before a Broadway show and a gift to Midtown West. Nothing to touch it for refined seafood...and the staff is kind. Free champagne and appetizers if you have to wait, $$ taken off the bill if you are even mildly dissatisfied. I once had the maitre d' chase me down the street to give me an $80 refund when I found my meal not hot enough! Only rivaled by Jean Georges and Bouley among the elite of NYC restaurants...and more recenlty Ducasse.

Chef Ripert is a true magician with seafood. His award this year as top chef from the James Beard Foundation is no fluke! Every time I have been, the food has been outstanding. The tasting menu with the halibut, peeky toe crab, and the desserts are just incredible. We ask the sommelier to create wine tastings which are spectacular with the food. If you are foodies, this place is an aprodisiac. Just ask my wife.

The restaurant probably remembers us because we were the youngest people there in our teenage years.Food,Decor and the service was great.I guess people were looking at us saying how these young folks know about this great restaurant.We felt really welcome there which made us comfortable.We went there to eat on April 18,2003, which was last night.We had a great time and we will be back.
