Service
 
A “well-conceived” menu of “beautifully prepared” grilled dishes and “scrumptious pastas” served by “personable” servers brings Upper Westsiders to this “buzzy” Mediterranean; though the “dark” , industrial-chic dining room can be “noisy” , locals dub it a “keeper.”

17th June ordered steak and duck dishes, both came out cold! Our side of creamed spinach was the only part of our dinner that was hot. Told our waitress - nothing. Told the waiter who took our plates - nothing. I am not one to complain but the fact we did not get an apology or something to make up for cold food when we spent $113 I think was worth mentioning here. Particularly when our hotel (The Beacon) recommended them. A free glass of wine or a dessert to share or just a plain old "sorry" would have gone a long way to fix this.

TERRIFIC. We were a group of 7, 3 generations on college graduation weekend, and we were the old guys. It made me feel young to come into a packed bar of 40 year olds watching hockey and comfortable to be seated by a lovely young woman who took us to our table in the back. The women ordered appetizers to share.....terrific. I had a hanger steak and substituted roasted asparagus for fries. Service was terrific. As one of us is a "regular", we were sent desserts "on the house". I'm told they were excellent. Under watchful owner eyes, Tessa is a big winner.

This place had such good reviews we had to try it. I didn’t think it was anything special. The waiter was rushing our courses but then at the end we waited 30 minutes to get the check. I ordered king prawn with pasta. He asked me if I wanted the appetizer size or the full portion, so I chose the full portion. Only 2 prawns!! With the heads still on. I couldn’t believe that was the full portion.
