One if by Land Two if by Sea

We will be dining here in the very near future. Any recommendations and thoughts about your dining experience would be appreciated.

  1. Check out this old thread. I wrote a detailed review in June 08.

    In retrospect though, I thought some of the commentators may have been right. The atmosphere is a bit contrived. 2 years since, I'm not sure now if I would choose to spend my money there. Or, it could be simply be that in NYC, there are sooo many options. By contrast, you can have a very romantic time at a very casual restaurant if the conditions are right. In any case, if you have an upcoming serious dinner date here, I hope you have a great time and enjoy. Maybe you can give us your opinion after you've dined here.

    1. I had a dinner and 2 brunches there a couple of years ago -- not my choice -- and the experiences were virtually uniformly awful, both food and service. I recall hard-cooked eggs benedict (two of us had to send our eggs back), and haughty, neglectful service. I would love to hear about more recent experiences, but based on mine I would never return. So many great places to choose from in NY! Good luck!

      1. re: City Kid

        I agree, for me this place is a pass.
        I have had 2 less than decent experiences and with so many choices in NYC I rarely EVER go back to place once I have been disappointed.
        Antiquated food and service, also I do not understand the romantic label.

      2. Search on the board and try to find a good review. That will tell you something.
