"the food was the most tasteless food we may have ever tasted - the chicken was tough and bland - too bad because the setting is delightful but no wonder there was hardly anyone there on a Friday night - the service seemed clueless as to the menu and quality of the food - even bringing it home and loading it up with garlic, onions, etc. could not bring the dishes to life"

"If I want a steak house, I go to a steak house. If I want mediterranean, I go to a mediterranean restaurant. Unfortunately, this place attempts to cover both bases, and so does a really poor job. The menu did not describe the food properly at all, making what arrived at the table a complete surprise. (If the meat in the dish is ground or chopped or diced - SAY THAT). Even the bread for the table was hard and tasteless. What a waste for such a beautiful setting. Needless to say, it was empty on a pre-Christmas Friday night, which should have been our first clue. Oh, well. Live and learn."

"I loved this place. It was classic New York with a modern twist. I wouldn't be surprised to see Frank Sinatra or Marilyn Munroe here. The staff were amazing as was the food with delicious starters of hummus and Eggplant dip with amazing bread and a complimentary dessert of profiteroles. Delicious. Drinks in the roof top bar were were a great start to the night. I can't wait to go back."

"After calling them a few times, they never told me that lunch is served in the bar. OK - got past that. We had a table of 7. ordered a nice bottle of wine, then asked for another and they had no more. So ordered a different kind. Asked for another of those (1 bottle doesn't even give 7 people a glass), and they ran out of that one also. Limited menu of 6 items of each: appy's, entrees and desserts. That's fine, until they told us that they are our of 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, and 2 desserts. When lunch did finally come, Then they forgot one of our entrees for a client. Lunch was a disaster. And never once did a manager come over to say "I'm sorry, let me buy you a drink or dessert". Worst place I have ever been for lunch - not sure how dinner is but I won't be there to try."

Note on the space, this really evokes the fabulous fifties, and there is also a sumptuous upstairs lounge.

"Was at restaurant on a Monday evening. The restaurant was not crowded. The service was very good and the food was quite good. I had the lamb chops - they were cooked nicely and flavored well. The setting was very nice and interesting - cool to look around and understand the history. I would recommend. I have had better food - and that is not saying anything was not good -- I would go back."

"The restaurant is large, wide open with a high ceiling and a fabulous crystal chandelier hanging over it. Live piano playing in the dining room - not too loud.
The good though was not good. Plain and ordinary and lacking in freshness.
Food is expensive too."

"loved the food and the ambiance. Ordered a bunch of apps that were all very tasty, next time I go I will order a main as they all looked amazing. Definitely an undiscovered gem in the heart of Midtown East."

"They did such an amazing job with this space. You will feel like you are being transported back to a golden era. You feel like Marilyn, Frank or Dean could come walking thru the door. I have a feeling this place will get discovered soon so get in there before it becomes difficult to get a reservation. The food was delicous and beautifully presented. Emory took good care of us and Catherine (C or K, not sure) was the best at making us feel very welcome and embraced. She even remembered my name the next night when I came in! Who ever designed the place has impeccable taste. Please go up the impressive spiral staircase to the private dining/club area. That would be perfect for a corporate holiday party."

"Spectacular atmosphere. Make sure to read about the location's history in advance to truly appreciate the venue. Staff was friendly and attentive. Food was delicious. Not recommended for children under 13. The portions are very large so consider sharing."

"The food was not. Sat in the bar for about an hour and had a martini which was perfect and the bartender was very attentive and nice. Very pretty restaurant and beautiful deco. The food on the other hand was tasteless. I had the free range chicken and it tasted of nothing, not even chicken, had to salt it twice to even get a taste. Only about 1/4 of the tables were filled and this was a Friday night. Maybe a new chef is in order?"

"The snow and ice changed our original plans to dine elsewhere. IBIS turned out to be a comfortable restaurant. Seating and service were great, but, in context, few guests dined there because of the weather. We were pleasantly surprised by the food. Steak tender and flavorful, and the fish perfectly seasoned and cooked just at the right temperature. Appetizers of grilled octopus and a dish of grilled marinated shrimp were off the chart delicious. Our server was engaging and attentive. Service was also timely. The only disappointment was dessert-- a big slice of an apple pie (menu listed it as an apple tart) served cold. Not very tasty and unimaginative. But everything else, including the Turkish wine, was sublime."

"The restaurant is new, which explains the fact that it was dead at 6:30 on a Saturday night. The acoustics made it so that every word we said felt too loud.
I was somewhat bothered by the presumptuous, snobby manner of the waiter, who made me feel like I was being cheap by ordering a coke instead of wine. (If I'm paying $4 for a coke, it's because I want a coke.)
The food was alright - colder than it should have been; the portions were very generous for the price, which is a plus. It's hard to make Mediterranean cuisine a "formal" dining experience, because the food is meant to be shared and, much of it, is meant to be eaten with ones hands.
I wasn't impressed by the ambiance. It felt like it was supposed to be a mafia-steak house."
