I've never been but everyone that I know who has raves about it. What is the offical chow response?

    Angelina and bjsimmons beat me to it. We tried Christie's several years ago, and I was sorely disappointed. In a word (o.k., two words): Nothing special.

      I second Angelina's opinion, this place is still living on their reputation of several years ago. Simply put - I would not recommend it or go back there again.

        Honestly, it is o.k. There is absolutley NOTHING in that area to compare because there are no restos..but I would not go out of my way for. I had sea bass there once and it was so bland..the fish was fresh, but no flavor. I could have made it at home w/ salt and pepper and some olive oil..as they did....blahhh.

        I only went once, so maybe listen to others. I was not at all impressed. Never will I go back either. My husband siad his steak was a little chewy. Service was from a 17 year old kid from Brooklyn, who kept telling us how he "hated leaving Brooklyn" for about 3 times...o.k....do not need to know that.

        If you go, please post about it!
