Great place! – We love this charming little restaurant! Nestled in the ground floor of a Tudor-style building apartment building, the Archway has a cozy, welcoming ambience. The food is delicious - have been there for dinner (awesome pastas, great salad) and brunch. Note that it does get crowded for brunch here, but for dinner, you're almost guaranteed whichever table you want. Courteous service, food feels made to order. Priced fine - not supercheap, midpriced, but that's the kind of place it is. Dining here is like taking a nice leisurely break, with great food, far from the usual hubbub of Manhattan. (The beautiful thing is, you are still in Manhattan!).
Hidden Gem – What a lovely restaurant. Once you find it, it is most definitely worth the price of admission. The food was very, very good and plenty of it. You will not go away hungry. The cheese plate, which can be ordered as an appetizer or main course (as most appetizers can be had), had fruits and cheeses that blended well and complimented each other. The salads were delicious, as were the main courses. Seafood, steak, chicken, pasta, vegetarian. Prices were more than reasonable and I noted that they have a lovely brunch menu. My friends and I have made it our mission to make sure that the word gets out about this hidden gem of a place. Well, maybe not too much word!
A rare find – Charming, romantic, hidden find located in a small, below-ground space. Food was good (excellent salad) and moderately priced. Dessert was very good. You have to be a robot not to like this place.
Complete Disappointment – My wife and I were so excited to dine here. Unfortunately, the decor, ambience, service and food were all terrible.
Decor - Grandma's apartment without the charm. A lot of unrealized potential.
Ambience - The kitchen is not completely walled off (Curtain wall), and we heard every word the server and the chef were saying. Not exactly romantic. It was too bright and none of the candles were lit.
Service - Our server wore a grimy apron. He was quite slow, which was inexcusable, considering we and another couple were the only people there.
Food - The cheese plate contained flavored spreads instead of decent chesses. The entrees (Ham/broccoli/mashed potatoes, and Beef stew) were flavorless and simple. The desert, a butterscotch pie which our server said was "homemade," was simply a Jello butterscotch pudding pie topped with Ready-whip.
$80 (incl. wine, tax and tip), WAY too much!
