Service
 
"Everything at this place is first-class" say fans of Michael Mina's "vibrant" Downtown New American, known for its "sumptuous" cuisine (notably the "memorable" prix fixe dinners), "outstanding" service and "unbelievably elegant yet comfortable" surroundings; given the "pricey" tariffs, many save it for "celebrating" , but it's also "fun to eat at the bar" for a less "formal" meal.

Every. Time. This place does not disappoint. You are well taken care of at every moment by a staff that is so helpful, but also so invisible - it's kind of magical. The food is, of course, without exception amazing. And if you don't like it, tell them what you do like and THEY'LL MAKE YOU SOMETHING ELSE! The cocktails are novel, seasonal, and great. Every step of the way, Michal Mina is a memorable experience. Order that pot pie - it's a whole small play when they bring it to you. And seriously - honey, cream cheese, and pepper on my bread - somehow it's the most delicious thing.

This is, hands down, my favorite bar. Dinner here is truly magical but it's the bar and the world class people behind it that secure its place in my heart. Megan created my girlfriend's favorite drink on her birthday. It helped inspire The Lost Garden Found which settled in on the menu for six months. Franco designed mine, a kind of Black Manhattan that contributed to the Don't Call Me Shirley which is on there right now. It's not that we're so great at choosing soon to be popular drinks, it's the aforementioned staff. Megan had a drink in USA Today and can design masterpieces based on just a few key questions. Franco is simply wonderful and makes me feel at home whether it's with clients or on date night. Thank you team Michael Mina.

I took my wife there recently for out anniversary. This place is fantastic but unfortunately it's still not Aqua. The lobster pot pie was very good and the staff was very nice, but with $21 martinis you would expect more. Deducting one star due to price.
