  • No, I would not go back!

I was the first of a party of 4 to arrive. The hostess stood outside the restaurant and did not greet me (I had to ask the bar tender who does the seating). She said she couldn't seat me until my party was here so I had a drink at the bar. After 10 minutes she seated another person that just walked in on the last empty table for four BEFORE her party was there - and told me and my friends that had arrived that it would take another 30-40 minutes to seat us. The other person was still alone at her table. When I pointed that out to the hostess, she did not appologize, she just said, well, yes, you were here before her! It can't be more unprofessional. Neither of us will go back to try the food.

Have been meaning to try this place for 5 months ever since last year. Enough reviews about this place. Financial Times, NY Observers, NY Times blah, blah, blah. Well, the food is good, that sustain my test. And oh my god, it is a hot scene here on Sunday night! And if you are happen to be a pig lover, you will love the cute deco.

Let them get settled before you go

We tried for an early Saturday dinner, and it was a disaster. They don't accept reservations for parties under 6, which means you need to get there early, and it will be VERY crowded. We managed to get a seat at the bar and ordered some wine (very nice, creative list), and got our appetiser, which was excellent (April Bloomfield is a promising talent). However, the service was horribly slow. More than 20 minutes after our appetisers were cleared, we inquired about our entrees, and were told at least 10 more minutes. We had tickets for a performance and had to leave. Unfortunately we were scolded by our server, and later the proprietor, for not letting them know we were in a rush (we had 1 hr 30 mins from when we sat down to when we needed to leave, and we ordered quickly, so this should not have needed to be a rush order!). The proprietor chose to yell at us on the street corner outside of the restaurant, suggesting that he, and the restaurant, need to mature a bit before the potential is realized.

The Pig Pours a Perfect Pint!

The Pig is a great local pub that is equally perfect for a post-work beer or a leisurely Sunday evening pint. The food is always incredibly good. The staff is fabulous, friendly and low-key - if only the same could be said for all of the customers!
