Arrival - we had reservations and arrived on time, but still was made to wait for nearly 20 minutes before a table was available for us. There was no proper waiting area and we were made to stand behind the hostess counter. There was no apology for making us wait.

Ambience - very modern, bright and lovely floral pictures adorn the wall - I guess the bistro's decor was the only plus point. The restaurant was crowded and noisy - not a good place if you want a quiet lunch or dinner.

Service - the waiters definitely gave better service than the hostess.

Food - the mahi mahi fish my wife had was overcooked and the meat tough!!! Otherwise, everything else was good.

Exit - the hostess did not even bother to thank us or bid us good bye.

Favorite Dish: The desserts were excellent.

Address: 55 West 44th St
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: We were staying at Times Square which was within walking distance to the restaurant.
