I am saddened to report that this is not a good restaurant. It's always exciting when something new opens in midtown, & I was anxious to try this one. However, it disappointed in all ways.

Waiting to place an order is expected (& we did); however, once you've begun to place your order, the employee taking that order should complete yours before walking away to get items out of the freezer for other guests who arrived after you (long after you!) or conversing with other employees, as if you are not there. Please just finish taking my order.

My friend & I ordered the same entree & different sides - me, pomme frites, & her, a garden salad. My entree arrived almost 15 minutes before hers did. Hers only arrived after we asked about it & without the salad. (Remember, we ordered the same thing - chicken & dumplings). Of course, I didn't begin eating until her food arrived. By then mine was cold - cold enough that I couldn't eat it. I asked our waitress to heat mine up. That took about 5 minutes (my friend's food was getting cold by then. . . ). Also, when my entree came back, it was in a smaller bowl & was a much smaller portion. Not sure where the rest of my chicken & dumplings went??? Finally, my friend's salad arrived - awhile after her entree. I then had to ask for more water - our waitress didn't check on us. That took some time but finally arrived. When our waitress came with the water, she finally removed the glasses on the table from the previous customers. (Note, we had to wipe down the table ourselves when we sat down).

The chicken & dumplings was not very good & the fries were a very small portion, although we noticed a much larger portion at a table next to us. The salad dressing was tasty, although the salad was merely greens & 4 - 5 grape or cherry tomatoes. I give this restaurant 1 star because the salad was pretty good.

This place was not inexpensive - $14/person plus a drink.

I couldn't make this up, but sure wish I had! Midtown could've used a new, good restaurant.

If you do decide to try this place, don't make the same mistake we did & tip when you place your order - wait & see how your meal turns out.
