Harold Dieterle's first restaurant, this snug West Villager still "delivers on its star-chef reputation" with "creative" New American standards (witness the "glory that is the spicy duck meatball" ) served by a "polished" staff; an "intimate" feel and "reasonable" prices "for the quality" make it a "spot-on" choice.

Great dining area (ask for a booth!) and service at the tables. The duck meatballs were good, the gnocchi was awesome, and the hangar steak was good but not great. The presentation of each item was superb. The menu is short but diverse, and they have a full 6 course vegetarian tasting menu for those who can't choose from the very meat-focused dinner menu. They finished the night by giving us some yummy chocolates with our bill.

I came here for Restaurant Week and was a little skeptical that a meal costing that much would ever really be worth the price. I was pleasantly surprised that even the vegetarian option was really quite delicious and the staggered structure of the courses really fit quite well for the meal itself. I was also amazed that a combination like cold watermelon cucumber gazpacho could so delicious while my main ravioli dish was really cooked quite well. I think the dessert was the crowning achievement though and was well made. I think though, that it's not quite at the point where I would come back and eat here not on Restaurant Week but was pretty impressed with the food nonetheless.

AMAZING Desserts! Great food; we were Harold fans from the first episode of Top Chef and happy he won. Got to meet him there - had to wonder if he's tired of hearing from fans yet? Cute neighborhood, nice atmosphere, Fabulous service - somehow there were a lot of employees floating about, but they were wonderfully helpful without being obtrusive. "Three little pigs" was delicious if you're into pork.
