3 Star Rating Came back to the original shop to reminisce the good old original shack burger. Don’t think it’s as good as I remembered it. A little sad that standards have gone down hill. Shakes and fries are still fine. Portobello burger not bad. Line moves quickly at noon. Getting a seat in the park a little challenge as there are the office lunch crowds. Wish there is more segregation of Shake Shack’s patrons for the price we pay. The Madison square park is an experience on its own. Nice to come on a sunny cool day.

5 Star Rating Even being busy during the lunch hour, the service was fast and great. I never regret to stop for a burger from them. Great food, tasty and fresh. The lemonade was refreshing. You can’t go wrong with Shake Shack if you are looking for a quality burger. The staff is always friendly and attentive.

5 Star Rating Reportedly the first Shake Shack, this spot is beautifully located in Madison Square Park, surrounded by plentiful outdoor seating to enjoy your meal. The brunch here indeed tastes better than at most other Shake Shack locations, and they serve food quickly, meaning you only wait a short time to enjoy delicious food. Highly recommended for fans of Shake Shack who want to visit their original location.

5 Star Rating Read about the roots of this restaurant and got a chance to try it. I was skeptical eating a good burger in a park shack, but along the with staff responsiveness and professionalism, the burger was OUTSTANDING. Excellent balance of ingredients and perfect preparation and taste of the hamburger meat. I was SO surprised and relished each and every bite. Staff were exceptional

4 Star Rating I didn’t have a reservation and the only table available was outside. I only came for just soup, but unfortunately the soup was genuinely very unappetizing. It lacked any sort of flavor or useful ingredients. It reminded me of something I would make with leftover ingredients. I could only eat half of it before I opted to order their milk cookie dessert and the burger, which the server Rafael told me was a classic choice. The burger carries an expensive price tag (the entire tavern menu does) at $35, but it could’ve easily been the best burger I will ever eat. The meat was juicy, cooked just right to medium rare and the duck fat chips were perfectly crunchy. The cookie dessert was clever; it came with chocolate milk and the cookie has a lot going on. It was more like a small cake. My server Rafael was very friendly. The other wait staff kept a close eye on me. The outside decor is warm and the chair is very comfortable. I was pretty impressed with my experience but the soup leaves a bad taste in my mouth about this particular dining experience, no pun intended, and for that reason I give four stars instead of five. I would be very excited to make a reservation for their main dining room in the future.

5 Star Rating Great service! Very good food. I recommend their fish and all desserts! I got a nice glass of sancerre. Everyone is very nice, kind, and helpful. They are great with kids as long as they behave! I don't want them to have a bunch of kids who run everywhere! Very professional staff and absolutely great place and atmosphere. I will insist on how the staff is great. It's not that common to find a restaurant with that level of professionalism and kindness.

5 Star Rating We came here for our anniversary and were left with very full bellies and big smiles on our faces. Honestly I think I could've given this place 5 stars for the service alone. Our waitress was incredibly well studied on the dishes and was able to detail the individual dishes while suggesting ways to round out our meal. She also helped tailor some of our dishes to suit our allergies while enabling us to taste as much or the stuff we were interested in. Excellent service throughout! Food wise, I thought the desserts were the most tasty out of all of it. I wouldn't skip on the Meyer lemon tart.

5 Star Rating My family and I came here for my brother’s birthday after making a reservation weeks in advance. When you make the reservation, make sure you’re choosing the right menu because the front of the Tavern serves their more casual fare whereas the back rooms host their tasting menu. We had the tasting menu - a 5 course menu. Each course had 2 dishes you could choose from: one that’s meat based and one that’s vegetarian. We also opted for the seafood starter tray which had the best shrimp I’ve ever had. My favorites of the menu were the squid ink pasta with lobster and the sea bass which had an Asian flavor profile that was both delicate and bold in flavor. Delicious! Shout out to Caroline who was a fantastic server that night and made our experience so fun! The place was clean and had a very casual vibe which I loved because I get annoyed by the pretentious vibe of fine dining restaurants. The staff were all professional and friendly. My only issue is that the place is so large and open that if you’re a group of 5 or more and are seated at a large table, the place gets a lot of echo, which makes it hard to have quiet conversations with the whole table. But, it’s great for intimate tables for 2 people who are seated close to each other. I absolutely plan to come back and try the vegetarian options of their tasting menu.

5 Star Rating I was told by my colleagues that I have to go here and try the burger at the bar! So I went on a Thursday evening and it was packed. But I got a seat at the bar. The servers were so nice and attentive. They had happy hour when I went; 4pm to 6pm. You can't beat $6 wine and beer and $12 cocktails! The burger was delicious. The best I've ever had. I also tried the chocolate pudding cake and that was also delicious. I found it interesting that this is a non tipping restaurant. If you tip, they will give it back to you but insist on giving someThing because their service is incredible.

5 Star Rating Honestly, I've been to this restaurant once before, about 3-4 years ago, for my husband's company Christmas party. I remember enjoying the meat that was served back then. So, unaware that the restaurant had become vegetarian, I made a reservation and went again two years ago. I probably wouldn't have gone if I had known it was vegetarian. Anyway, it was still a pleasant experience. Normally, I hardly eat if there's no meat or fish protein, but I seriously considered trying vegetarianism after dining at this restaurant. I still can't forget the clean and pure taste of the food and its heavenly aroma. The most delicious part was the appetizer bread and the butter, it was so amazingly tasty. However, I remember the portions not being a lot. We had beverage pairings, and even after finishing them all, I didn't feel full. I'm not sure if the portions were small, if I was missing meats, or if the food was just too delicious and I wanted to keep eating. After the meal, we got granola from there, which was so delicious that I've been making my own granola since then and eating it every morning. There's no doubt that it's a place influenced my life.

4 Star Rating I came to Eleven Madison before they went vegan, but it was not too impressive. Don’t get me wrong, it was good but did not stand out among other fine dining restaurants to me. I was surprised they went vegan and still got Michelin stars, so I decided to come again. Wow, what a huge difference! And it was actually very good! All the dishes are very flavorful and fresh. I can see they are Asian-inspired, but not on the oily or spicy side, more on the clean and comforting side. But to be honest, there was about 20 minutes wait without any food on the table between dishes, and it was kind of awkward and weird because I could tell the waiters were trying to avoid our eyes. Overall, it was a very good meal. I will definitely come back again.

5 Star Rating A surprise birthday dinner at 11 Madison Park. And … yes for all those who are vegan, vegetarian and those who are open minded about culinary inventions, do go to this place at least once! What an experience, from the minute you sit down from the bar to the dining table, the service is impeccable, the atmosphere is one of excitement, relaxed and fun at the same time. The wine pairing is amazing. I had the best wines with our meal.The food is simply mind blowing; delicate,decadent, beautifully prepared and presented. You just keep eating and drinking non stop, the dishes just keep coming. Highly highly recommended!!

5 Star Rating I am a carnivore. I love steak and this restaurant doesn't propose any because they are a 3 Michelin Stars restaurant. I thought it would be an average experience. But it was excellent. Of course, the service was pretty awesome, but it's kind of expected in this kind of place. The food was amazing. Very tasty! Highly recommend!

4 Star Rating Came here for the first time and enjoyed the experience - notably it gets packed and very loud so just something to keep in mind. Service is pretty fast and efficient and I loved all of the dishes I tried. The mezze is wonderful with the fresh bread - especially the smoked trout! I went with the crab benedict which was pretty good overall. I will say I was expecting a crab-cake as opposed to the crab-meat on creamed spinach but I still did enjoy the flavors. Would definitely want to try more on the menu the next time I'm back!

5 Star Rating My hubby booked a reservation at 5pm, we arrived at 430pm and they seated us. This was perfect as the restaurant was just getting ready for dinner time. We ordered our drinks first and waited to order our food. The drinks were delicious! I ordered the Smoking Fruit and it was perfect! My hubby ordered the Caribbean Old Fashioned, needless to say he was also happy with his drink. Appetizers were great we had grilled Portuguese octopus. It was cooked to perfection and was a good portion! All I can say is scrumptious yummyness! Then my hubby had a beef soup which was the special of the day. He was happy either way it! Again I thought it was a tad bit salty. For our entrees i had the grilled Atlantic salmon. It was perfectly grilled to retain its moisture and flavor. It was perfectly paired with baby Brussel sprouts, radishes and earthy wild mushrooms. The black truffle vinaigrette added some savory notes, fully completing the dish! My hubby ordered the slow cooked short rib tagine. The meat was tender and succulent infused with delicious spices. He loved it! I thought it was just a tad salty. The homemade couscous was fluffy and just delicious, paired perfectly with the short rib. The atmosphere was wonderful!! Beautifully decorated and just great. It was nice especially because we came early! By the time we left, it was full. We will definitely return to try other dishes or maybe just have a drink at the bar.

5 Star Rating Had a lovely visit here for lunch right around the time they opened. The ambiance, food, and service were all immaculate. Highly recommend starting with the Cauliflower (a true appetizer featuring 3 different “sauces” that expands your appetite and look forward to future courses). The Shakshuka was excellent, make sure to get it with the house bread crusted with thyme and rosemary. I enjoyed it with a glass of the Rioja Iberico which completed the food perfectly. I will be dreaming about this dish for a while. And finally close off with the rose water pannacotta (with a side of saint germain elderflower liquor). The true artistry here is that all the dishes on the menu and that I ordered all are so cohesive with one another with each dish “flowing” into the next seamlessly. There’s clear connection in food profiles but substantial differences in the flavors where there is no monotony in what you’re consuming. Looking forward to returning.

Not to mention our server William was incredible and very knowledgeable about all the menu items. He recommended the “something essential drink” when I had no idea what I wanted and it was one of the best drinks I’ve had in a while - also a very pretty drink. I also had the bib salad, burger and apple cake, all so delicious 😋

5 Star Rating (Edited after a another visit, see below) 1. Food was so good - I've been here before and it's consistently so. However, the server we had wasn't friendly at all and was pretty terrible. We had some older bald guy. The people who came to bring our food or refill our water we're great, so still tipped 20% in hopes the tips are shared. But can't say our waiter deserved it. Before I start on the food, the apple cake is a must if you're getting dessert! I don't even like apple desserts, but this is the exception. The AGNOLOTTI AI GIRASOLE is amazing and the Butter-Poached Lobster is decent. Scallop for the app (just a single one) is decent and the fingerling potatoes were great. Edit: 2. Gave Union Square Cafe another try recently and I was blown away! The team took extra care to ensure our experience was going well and the server has great recommendations for our drinks. The diver scallop this time was cooked most perfectly and may have been the best I've had, with great color and still managing to melt in my mouth. They had an interesting cold, citrusy shrimp appetizer special that was fun and their pasta dishes are so consistently delicious! Only little thing was the side of fingerling potatoes weren't too hot this time around - they were too big, not as crispy, and a bit undercooked. But meh, we quickly forgot about it with everything else tasting so good. Did I mention their apple cake is a must try?!

4 Star Rating I came here with two others on a cold Saturday night. The restaurant was packed and very cozy. The type of place you look in through the window it seems like everyone is having a lovely time. I live in the same neighborhood and hadn’t been here in over five years. I had sort of written it off but I was wrong. Our server was lovely, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and extremely attentive. The food was delicious. The gnocchi was some of the best I have come across in recent times. I will be back and I would recommend. Only downside is that the steak was fatty and the the tables are very close to one another.

The vibe of places was good. Family oriented with children but there was the young good looking crowd as well. The waitresses were also very nice. The catsup was served in a big unlabelled bottle which was unique. Our order came out warm and quick. The washroom needs some work though.

4 Star Rating Very nice Italian pasta restaurant (by Tom Coliccio from Food Network's Top Chef) with a relaxing & inviting setting in the flatiron district. We tried two appetizers and three pasta selections (there's only a few vegetarian options so we replaced sausage for anchovies in one dish), and all were good. Would not recommend the wine & pasta special as the house wines weren't up to the quality of the pasta. Service was very good.

5 Star Rating We had a wonderful experience at Vallata on Saturday night, celebrating some personal successes among our group. We arrived about 30 mins early to have a drink at the bar, but opted to be seated and begin our evening a table directly in front of the open kitchen- perfect for our night (thank you to the hostess). By the time me and and my wife received our first round of Forst Italian Pilsner and a rosé for her, we had met three members of the staff (Christian got us started with amazing service) and we recognized that this restaurant had, quite possibly, the best music mix of any location we had dined and recently. Our friends arrived and drinks kept coming. We coursed our own meal out, which was so nice to be allowed to do so. We started with Whipped Ricotta and Arancini, both were our favorites of the evening. Arancini was better than what we had in Rome, while admittedly a different style. Our guests shared a cacio e pepe for a main, while I ordered the Paccheri with Fennel Sausage and Broccoli Rabe. Mine was was slightly undercooked below al dente, too chewy, but delicious flavor. My wife’s delicious steak arrived about 6 minutes after our pastas arrived, which was slightly disappointing, as we all chose to wait. En lieu of ordering dessert I explored down the beer list further, ordering the Baladine and Del Ducato IPAs. I love the Italian beer portfolio from B United but have found the hops offered on draft to move beyond earthy into oxidized and sherry like. This isn’t unique to this location. The “American Style IPA” tasted great, as the alcohol content masks the slightly sweet hop atrophy. All in all, an incredible and wonderfully hospitable time at Vallata and we can’t wait to return… and try some dessert next time.

3 Star Rating I wasn’t sure how to rate Vallata because I was technically there with a friend for their collab with Win Son, but ended up trying both restaurant’s food. I’m definitely not under the impression that Italian food in NY is fairly priced, especially in a restaurant. I just felt that the $25 brunch pasta dish I ordered would fill me up enough until dinner perhaps? Not so much. I ordered the pasta with anchovies, fennel, puntarelle mushrooms, and cured olives. While I enjoyed the umami flavors, I felt that there’s no way a dish like this can be worth $25 and I still end up hungry afterwards. My friend ordered the $17 glorified lettuce salad, which was probably the most unfairly priced considering it was just lettuce with some dressing and seasoning. The service was great though – the servers were enthusiastic even, also being attentive to our glasses of water, asking about dietary restrictions, and answering questions. One of the other saving graces was the cannoli cream bomboloni we ordered and split in two. The cream was rich and clearly used high quality ricotta, and the donut itself was light and had a citrusy taste to it as if infused with peel. The second saving grace was the 2 Win Son scallion pancake sandwiches I ordered to go, but I do wish they came with the signature ginger sauce and the nice carton box rather than really thick plastic containers.

5 Star Rating Great value & service for brunch. We all loved the 3 starters (anchovy egg toast mm) & 3 mains (including chicken, steak & eggs, and porchetta sandwich) that we ordered. I hope to be back

5 Star Rating It's hard to put into words how great this restaurant experience was! My husband booked this restaurant for our anniversary. And it did not disappoint! The server was so friendly and explained everything on the menu. I had the pork and my husband had the duck! How delicious both dishes were! They also gave us a glass of complimentary champagne because of the occasion! The rose was also really tasty. Everything about the atmosphere to the food to the service was excellent. Great job chef TC!

5 Star Rating Great vibes. Loved the atmosphere and service. Some of the dishes were great. Loved the duck. Also love the idea of locally sourcing ingredients directly from farms. The scallop tasted a bit off. Everything else was great.

5 Star Rating I love the beef short rib. Very satisfying. I like the trout, gnocchi with truffle. Burgundy truffle is a little too mild for me. I like white alba truffle the most, is the most aromatic for me. Manager Tianna is amazing and goes above and beyond. I appreciate her greatly for creating me an off menu tropical desert. Exactly what I love

5 Star Rating The best service I've ever experienced. The food was delicious with so much depth of flavor. The only way it could've been better is if we saw Tom Colicchio in the flesh. Maybe next time...

3 Star Rating Service was spot on... There when needed but not overly aggressive. Although it's weird to me that you can't order appetizers and then your main course later but that's really a small quibble. Food was tasty but not amazing. Grilled octopus was not chewy but still have yet to find one better than Ostra in Boston. Mushroom risotto was the best dish we had. Brussels sprouts ok. Chicken was good and scallops were well cooked although gritty. Dessert was meh. My souffle was liquid in the center and creme brulee was just OK. Wines were amazing and pairing reccomendations were on point! Overall nothing was terrible but at the price point and with a Top Chef judge, I expect to be wowed and other than the risotto, wine and service we weren't.
