Wonderful atmosphere, great kept secret – I took my friend there for her bday prior to a show. She was visiting from out of town and wanted a real "NY" place, whatever that meant exactly. The real NY places aren't really in the theatre district, but we were seeing a show on a Friday night, so not much choice on location. We called to say we were running about 30 minutes late and not only did they hold our table, but couldn't have been nicer about it. Our waiter, Victor, asked if we were seeing a show & correctly assured us that we had plenty of time for 3 courses, which we did, along w/a lovely bread basket served w/olive oil w/garlic/butter or balsamic vinegar choice. Bread was scrumptous-worth the carbs! The menu was eclectic and the food DELICIOUS!! I got the shrimp risotto and my friend said her skirt steak was the best she's ever had. THe waiter was very helpful telling us what was lighter fare vs. more hearty meals. Dessert was cookies and cream which was chocolate mousse w/cream spread on plate and some other delicious form of chocolate. ONly complaint is that wine by the glass was pricey. We got ala carte items off menu which were reasonable around $20-$25, but the house red wine by the glass was $16 each-ouch. The prix fixe has a good deal where for $20 or so you get 3 glasses of wine, one with each course, so perhaps worth it. They gave us a complimentary appetizer, so that made up for the wine cost and was delicious gouda cheese w/pear pate and strawberry. I will go back and soon. Oh, I almost forgot, I really wanted to avoid that theatre district loudness w/tourists crawling over each other's table and could not have created a prettier atmosphere. The decor is very upscale, but the ltg was lower so very comfortable. Great place fora romantic dinner too. My friend said it was one of the best meals she ever had. Go, go, go-but don't tell too many people about it!!
GOOD FOOD & ATMOSPHERE – Just recently visited this theatre district restaurant. My food was excellent. Yellow Tuna appetizer was great, as was my Filet, which was prepared with Blue Cheese. My guest had poor luck w/ the popcorn topped salad and her chicken. Desserts were very good. Service was not the greatest, as the waiter was not attentive enough and nearly caused us to miss our show. Would try again, but hope for more attentive service. If seeing an 8pm play...make sure to book your reservation for 6pm or earlier.
yuck – the food is bad to mediocre, like airplane food quality, but trying to make nouvelle-esque dishes when they should keep it simple. The ambiance, is okay, is very midwestern-hotel. Do not waste your money at this place, there are so many nice places in the area, avoid district unless you're locked in the muse hotel.
Upscale American favorites any time of day in the Theater District. – In Short
A comfortable theater-themed space that doesn't carry the metaphor too far. A row of stage lights illuminates the waitstation, and proscenium arches are simulated along the walls. The menu features American bistro dishes like crab cakes, chicken under a brick, fresh oysters and various seafood dishes. The breakfast menu lists omelettes, pancakes and more. Creme brulee, cheesecake and warm chocolate cake are among the dessert choices.
Definately the best in the district – I have been to District several times for breakfast, lunch, and dinner plus I have stayed in the Muse hotel. I love everything about this place. The omlets are to die for, and the mini-burgers and wraps are my favorite for lunch. For dinner I love the tiered seafood appitizer and tuna tartar, for an entree the salmon and the steak are divine. I also love that this place (although American) serves Saki by the glass. The misture of flavors is delicious. Don't forget to stay at th Muse. I have stayed in some of the bext hotels in the world and the beds in this place are super comfy.
Will try again...... – Restaurant was very good and very close to the theatre district, hence the name. Food was very good and tasty, however I have had better Tuna Nicoise in Jersey! (Tuna was good, but not great.) The Prix Fixed menu has enough selections to please just about everybody....except my spouse. My spouse wanted an entree with shrimp and the waiter said that they could not accomodate her. The waiter checked with the kitchen after much prodding with him (we shouldn't of had to prod....) and the kitchen said that they could not prepare a special shrimp dish. Not even grilled shrimp? Go figure.
