The concept of the restaurant is fantastic. The name comes from Latin root meaning of a tree. So the restaurant describes itself like this: Farm-to-table Californian fare & craft cocktails in a relaxed, fashionable space with a woodsy feel. I loved the ambiance and felt very welcome and comfortable dining in this place. We are back gain to dine here after 4 years. I was so looking forward to the delicious bread but our waiter didn’t offer it to us. So I have to give it a 4 star rating. The foods were excellent though just like I remembered them from my first time dining in this restaurant. All of us loved the foods we ordered. Every dish was presented well and the tasty were so delicious. Because the restaurant emphasizes farm to table freshness, the food we had were so fresh. My Mediterranean Sea bass was very well seared and seasoned. The skin was crispy and the meat was tender. The vegetables on the side complimented the fish well. The shrimp penne was scrumptious too. Although the shrimps were a bit over cooked, the penne was cooked to Al dente. The creamy sauce was very flavorful. The ambiance was rustic but warm and modern. We lost track of the time in enjoying the drinks and the conversations. We ended up having a 3 hour dinner. Free parking is in the back of the restaurant on Hudson street.
This is the place to go for excellent dining experience. It’s my fourth time here and I still find the food and service amazing . The tagliatelle with sausage ragu, duo of duck and Mediterranean sea bass are family favorites. The striploin is rich and satisfying. We finished the meal with the blackberries with curd and almond brittle and dark chocolate mousse with raspberries. The ambiance and good service just added to my overall satisfaction.
Beautiful restaurant with wood accents throughout. Food was delicious and server was very attentive. Their warm bread and seasoned butter was a great start! The food came out at just the right time and drinks were replenished often. A great neighborhood spot!
The ribeye for two was really good. Great meat quality and taste. It's definitely big enough for even 3-4 ppl. The slices duck on Duo of duck dish was tender and juice. Duck leg was a little dry but still great taste. Fish dishes were all perfect. I don't usually eat fish in a restaurant, but the fish here was real fresh.
I wanted to provide my experience I had during tonight's dinner. First off, this was my first time at this restaurant and I was very happy with the way it turned out. The food was delicious, the front house staff was accommodating (shoutout to Judy our waitress), and the interior design of the restaurant was excellent. I had the opportunity to try the bucatini spaghetti and pacific oysters and was blown away by the creative tastes Chef Gresik has created. The only negative experience I had this evening was the event at around 8PM when smoke started entering the main area and a few minutes later the fire alarms were set off. This prompted my wife and myself to gather our belongings quickly, pay for our interrupted dinner, and to exit the restaurant as the loud repetitive sounds of the fire alarms was very disturbing and the smoke filling the main area created more safety hazards for our personnel. The staff was not communicating with us on any action steps on the situation and we had to take that upon ourselves to rectify our safety. Again, the entire dining experience was excellent up until that moment and we are very disappointed in the way the management and rest of staff handled the situation. Some feedback I would like to point out is just to communicate with your customers to allow informed decisions on your patrons. We understand random events occur, but being left in the dark is very unwelcoming and doesn't provide a sense of urgency for customer safety. Thank you for taking the time to read my feedback and hope management can educate and learn from this event moving forward with the rest of the staff.
