We went for our first anniversary and the atmosphere was perfect. The food was delicious; for a starter my husband had the scallops and 2 oysters and I had the burrata, for mains he had the Peking duck and I had the halibut and for dessert he had the Chocolate soufflé...all were prepared to perfection. Then our waitress came over with a platter of sweets that said Happy Anniversary on it. We could not have picked a more romantic spot to celebrate at. The service was excellent Will definitely be back.
This restaurant is a beautiful setting- even in summer as they had the front window open looking out to the street which added a nice ambiance. I think the red meat options on the set menus are delicious, but the seafood or possibly a vegetarian or non dairy option are slim to none. I had the salmon and it was very mediocre for such a high end restaurant. The service was outstanding- our waiter was very sweet and attentive. We moved to the bar to have dessert which was fun as the bar felt like you were eating in someone's turn of the century home.
We have not been to this restaurant in a number of years. Previously we had gone several times for dinner and often for drinks. The ambiance, particularly in the bar, is still very nice and the piano really adds to this. The menu has changed, however, to a $100 three course prix fixe or a more expensive Tasting Menu. The Prix Fixe is far too expensive and removes the diner's choice to skip one or more courses. The food is good, but not commensurate with the pricing. Overall, it is a bad deal and just not worth it. I would return for a drink at the bar, but not for a meal unless the menu changes and the prices adjust to come closer to the earth.
Cons: duck was overcooked, gnocchi was hard and looked very unappetizing, waiter was not not knowledgeable about the food AT ALL, fruit flies were constantly hovering about our table
Pros: ambiance, they gave us an happy anniversary dessert.
Super disappointed with this one. At these prices you would expect the food to be spectacular and it was far from that. Would not return or recommend to anyone.
Absolute beautiful setting. Space between tables and a quiet atmosphere with live background piano music contributes to the upscale environment. Staff and waiters are professional as one would expect in such a gourmet establishment.
Our party of four elected to order the 3-course prix fixe, in lieu of the seven-course tasting menu. Appetizers were all excellent. For the main course, two of us ordered the Beef Wellington. We both were a bit disappointed. I had ordered mine medium-rare, and it was a solid medium, which resulted in a piece of meat lacking the flavor I expected. I had actually recalled reading similar reviews of the Beef Wellington, but reluctantly decided to experience it myself.
Desert was excellent, and overall enjoyed the dining experience. Be prepared to shell out big bucks as the prix-fixe is close to $100 pp, and the tasting menu is approximately $165, without drinks.
I'd not dined here in a very long time, but it was an amazing experience - everything that I remembered. Whilst the food and ambiance were great, the service was exceptional - they even indulged in an unusual dessert choice!
Highly recommended for those extra special occasions.
While ambience was great - live music, great view, candles, flowers, service, the food was terrible. It was served in a fancy way but taste and quality were really bad. For $250 for two people just food excluding drinks it was very disappointing. We couldn't even finish desserts and my husband had a stomach pain afterwards. I think even $5 cart food in NYC tastes much better.
First time at one if by Land and it was a fabulous experience. Delicious food, outstanding service and ambience. It was a great restaurant to celebrate a special wedding anniversary.
Looking forward to returning and enjoying a wonderful evening. Definitely one of the nicest NY restaurants my wife and I have ever been to. No negative comments as there was nothing to complain about.
Service and atmosphere was outstanding. However, the food... did not meet to expectations. Started off with oysters, and they were the worst oysters i've ever had at a restaurant. The dollar happy hour oysters at other joints are better than the ones i've had at this place. Not shucked properly and almost confident they were not fresh. Also had foie gras and scallops for appetizers and they were much better than the oysters but still a 4/5 for an upscale restaurant. For entrees, we had the beef wellington and campon breast. I was really amazed with the campon, very tender and juicy whereas the beef wellington was just ok. We took dessert to go and they were actually pretty good, next time will try it at the restaurant with the ice cream. Overall disappointed with the experience but will give it another shot in the future because the service and atmosphere is fantastic for special occasions.
I've had dinner here on a couple of occasions before a few years ago, and I've always been very happy, but this time was a disappointment. Everything was strangely bland, with little attention to detail. The ramp risotto with the scallop was watery, flavorless and under-salted, and the piece of meat used for the beef Wellington was so large that the proportions between fillet, paté and pastry was off - a smaller piece would have been better. I always thought of this restaurant as a great place for special occasions, but it no longer seems worth the money.
Excellent service and wonderful prix fixe menu. Great interior and vibe with a piano player and soft lighting. Food was great; recommend the burrata, grilled octopus, duck, bone-in ribeye and tres leches.
Went there for an anniversary and they gave us a lovely dessert with 'Happy Anniversary' written on the plate.
For the very high price, this place was a bit disappointing. The ambiance is excellent as was the service. However, the food was only OK and the overall experience did not match what we expect for that price level. The beef wellington (an iconic dish of theirs) comes with a very sweet sauce, which I found unpleasant.
Enjoyed very much
Ended upstairs and not on main floor as we wanted a quiet dinner. Room was not as interesting as main floor
Prefix menu $100 3 courses
Staff was excellent and hostess was funny and attentive.
Was a special occasion and staff acknowledged it and added a small extra nibble desert
Fireplace after dinner for a port and was a cozy spot next to piano
Music was excellent mostly show tunes so it was fun
Very comfortable atmosphere...beautifully done. Food interesting, well-prepared, well-presented. Service unobtrusive any excellent...ask for Greta...a wonderful professional AND a very nice person! Great pianist in the bar area could be heard throughout, but quiet overall. I am quite deaf, but I could hear my wife's conversation with no trouble.
