Can anyone give me some feedback on this place? I may be meeting friends there for dinner in a few weeks. To me it seems WAY over priced. Is this place owrth it? Thanks!

    I haven't been there in the last two years, but its a comfortable room, acceptable food, decent service with high prices. Kind of reminds me of Fresco by Scotto.
    These are the kinds of places I hate. That $50-$75 per person tab with food that is just acceptable, not bad, not particularly good either.

      Thanks for the feedback AdamD....I didn't have a good feeling about the place, I'm not into the white linen atmosphere. I changed my plans and am headed to Peasant instead, which is my kind of place.

        Never made it down to that spot so I cant speak from personal experience.

        You might want to check out the yelp, citysearch and menu pages reviews if you haven't already.

        Some of the recent reviews are less than positive.

          Thanks for the heads up Adam....I haven't been to Peasant in a few years and it was good then. Seems to be going down hill a bit lately. I cancelled my res, and decided to go to Apizz instead, after not being able to get a table at Il Buco.
