    The Iron Chef's restaurant has been open since 2008, but it still remains a local favorite for its bold flavors.

    FYI: This breakfast sandwich won a Michelin Star. It's a popover stuffed with crispy bacon, eggs, parmigiano, and sun dried tomato. Go ahead and order one RFN (212-941-9401)

    It's dark and candlelit and I love his food, though it’s certainly not cheap. Appetizers $13 to $36 for black truffled egg in a jar.

    With excellent food and an extensive wine list, you can't go wrong with this place. We shared sushi and liver pate for appetizers. My entree was halibut in cauliflower and hazelnut sauce which was to die for.

    Beautiful fairly large space. Reminiscent of a country setting. Managed to get an early evening table. We were the first set of diners at the restaurant, but it quickly started to get busy. Really attentive and efficient staff. The bread was a brioche and the butter as rather good. The amuse buche courtesy of the chef was a cold tomato based (gazpacho like) soup with a small puff pastry. It was great! Started of with chicken liver- a mousse on crackers. The other was a Laotian sushi. Both were perfect! My main was a red fish. The fish itself was delicious. The 5 pepper sauce was a bit overwhelmed by the tomatoes. On the pricey side, but well worth it!

    I was going to meet my daughter for an early dinner at Bar Cyrc, which was closed for "updating" and given I was early was walking around TriBeCa and walked by this place. It looked like a great place at 4:50 was just getting ready for a 5PM opening, however, were happy to have me come in. We sat at the bar, which began to quickly fill up and by the time we left at 7:30 on a Thursday the bar, indoor seating and outdoor seating was packed. Reade is a quiet street so outdoor dining is fine. We had delicious cocktail concoctions made wonderfully by a friendly bartender. We ordered small plates which were quite good and very creative (pate, spaghetti, duck) and received beautiful bread and herbed butter. The service was attentive and the place has a great vibe. A tad pricey - but worth it. We shall return.

    My wife surprised me by treating me to a birthday dinner at urban chic, Michelin-listed Marc Forgione, and the restaurant did not disappoint. We had an outdoor patio table for two waiting, and I found a birthday card from the restaurant staff propped up against the table candle. Service was outstanding from moment of arrival until departure -- solicitous and accommodating without being obtrusive. Two examples -- the bus staff was always prompt in refilling our water glasses without our having to ask the moment the levels got low. And we noted how the wine steward waited patiently off to the side with our wine bottle in-hand, not interrupting us to pour and taste until the server had answered our many questions about the menu first. Nicely done. This was our first foray to the restaurant, so based on one experience we can give the food a thumbs up. We opted to go a la carte with a bottle of wine rather than do the small plate tastings and pairings. The chili lobster appetizer with Texas Toast that we split was excellent. For our entree we opted for what the server said was the chef's piece de resistance -- a dinner for two broiled "chicken [pressed] under a brick" accompanied by potatoes and broccoli rabe soaked in pan drippings so exquisitely and tastefully seasoned that you literally wanted to lick the plate (we used the outstanding rolls with garlic butter to finish the drippings instead). We ate the whole thing, and believe me, it was quite a portion. For dessert we split a wonderful cheesecake. The wine list is intimidating...huge and long on triple and four digit dollar bottles way, way out of our desire or range. But as is usually the case, if you dig hard enough you can find a couple of very fine bottles buried in there in the $70-$90 range, as we did. A restaurant of this caliber will not give you a less than excellent wine even at its lowest prices. Our only surprise when my wife got the bill was the cost of the chili lobster appetizer -- not that she wasn't OK to pay it. But we missed the fact that it was marked "market price," and were surprised to see an appetizer come in at $39. Nonetheless, when our bill came in at about $260 give-or-take including tax and tip (I think I got that right; I stole a glance), my wife found it more than reasonable for such a special occasion and such excellent food and service in a highly-rated, romantic and pleasant atmosphere. Please note that the candle-lit interior of the restaurant is very dark; it may not suit everyone, though one's eye did become accustomed quickly. Highly recommended based on one visit. But as we all know, the proof is in the second time around. Next time we visit NYC, we will give it a shot for sure, as should you.

    We decided to head into the city to have brunch and meet with visiting family. After perusing another site for ideas - I know shame on me - we decided on dining here for brunch. We walked into an empty restaurant, which to me is an ominous sign and we had choice of tables. We choose outside since it was a beautiful day - a little overcast but not too hot or humid, and a sprinkle of rain. Service was beyond excellent. Very helpful in explaining the different dishes, drinks and such. The staff was ever present without being obvious. And it did not take long for the restaurant to fill up. We were started off with their everything bagel biscuit. along with their bottomless blueberry mimosa (delicious, a little pricey but we got our moneys worth). I loved them, my GF thought it was a bit underdone and ate the outsides - I gladly ate the middles. It was served with a butter cream cheese or cream cheese butter that made a great thing better. For our brunches, I had the Brioche French toast - so so good. My GF had the scrambled eggs served in a popover. All gone too fast. The meal was accompanied by perfectly done bacon, sausage and home fries. All excellent. We ended with these hot chocolate chip cookies with melted vanilla ice cream - it isn't polite to lick the bowls, right? The price is right for sure.

    The tasting menu and pairings were excellent. And, the waitstaff were personable and knowledgeable. We did not find it pricey for an excellent dining experience in NYC!!

    Very very small portions at big price. Good atmosphere, good food. Kind of restaurant that would be good with clients and with a good expense account. Not so much on your own...

    The food and service was outstanding. The chef even rustled up a spectacularly beautiful and delicious vegetarian main for me. The only reason for not giving this a five rating is the smell! Hit me when we entered and made me a bit queasy all through. What is it. Musty and weird.

    Our yearly visits to NYC are largely centered around Broadway shows so we plan only one top restaurant per visit. As a big fan of Iron Chef Forgione's food during the show it was time to try out his restaurant. It certainly did not disappoint. The ambiance is lovely and intimate, the tables are not too close together. We went all out and started with Charred olives, Chili Lobster and Foie Gras followed by Halibut, Black Bass and two desserts. I always feel that food should be a memory and this meal was extremely memorable. Our thanks to all who made this meal possible. I could see this being a regular haunt if we were locals. I had asked prior to the visit if I could buy a cookbook signed but Chef had not been in. The Manager said he would do his best to have one signed for us by the weeks end and not only did we get the cookbook but also met Marc when we picked it up. What a great experience. We will definitely be returning.

    Love this place! The chef, for which the restaurant is named, is an Iron Chef, so it should come as no surprise that the food is excellent, with dishes that are both creative and surprising. Prepare to be delighted! (I highly recommend the Chili Lobster.) Service is top notch. Cocktails are expertly prepared and the sommelier is very knowledgeable. There is a great brunch menu, as well. I've been here many times, both for dinner and brunch and I have never been disappointed.

    Mother's Day brunch was perfect. Popovers filled with eggs and bacon were delicious. So was French toast with caramelized bananas - amazing.. Staff was welcoming and extremely efficient.

    Everything we tried was delicious and unique, which makes the experience even more special. The service was good too. You must get the "The Egg" desert; it was phenomenal, and my guess is that it is pretty low cal for a desert, which makes it guilt free too. :)

    Atmosphere was great for a beautiful Easter morning. The open air floor plan is to be enjoyed by every patron. The decor was elegantly simple and food was great. I enjoyed the popovers with scrambled eggs and the way some items are served family style. If you are looking for brunch after Mass at Saint Peters this is a close walk.

    We arrived a little early to meet our friends and were greeted warmly and shown to the bar where we enjoyed gin and tonics before dinner. The bar area is nice, spacious and if you can't get a table then you can eat smaller plates here. The restaurant is dimly lit and tables are arranged so we were not too close to our neighboring table. Our waiter was very good, and patient, explaining all the ingredients that we didn't recognise - there were a lot !! The menu was unnecessarily complicated/cryptic. I'm not sure if they are aiming for confusion or superiority, but a little more description would be great. I'm perfectly happy to admit my lack of knowledge and ask questions but if your menu has the potential to intimidate your customers is that something you want to do? There were many things I'd never heard of mangalista lardo, rutabaga, and nduja to name a few and having foods to share like skewers of love, hot little bi*ches and lunchables was actually just a bit irritating. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, we had a few small plates to start, an amuse bouche from the kitchen, chili lobster was delicious (but a little messy), fois gras was beautifully presented and the halibut and the monkfish were both cooked perfectly. I might go back, but the cryptic menu kinda took something away from the whole experience.

    My daughter took me to Marc Forgione to celebrate my birthday. The experience began when I was given a beautiful hand written birthday card from the restaurant along with sparkling wine to toast the occasion . Everything that followed was amazing. The food was outstanding & we will certainly return!

    Recommended and hosted by a local friend, it was different and in a good way. Dishes called "Smoking Hot Little B-ches" and "Skewers of Love", baked oysters and chicken hearts respectively were excellent. The chicken cooked under a brick for two raised the humble chicken to rarely seen heights, whilst the 10 minute cookies and melted ice cream a treat. Good wines-huge list and efficient but relaxed serving made for a treat.

    I loved every minute at this restaurant. The server and and his support staff anticipated our every need. The food was outstanding. My friend and I shared the chicken under a brick, this is a dish for 2 where hot plates are delivered to you just before this sizzling, bubbling chicken arrives. My husband had the halibut and my friend's husband had the scallops, both their dishes were wonderful, but they were happy to help finish the last of the chicken. A simple dessert of sorbet and coffee rounded out the dinner. We were surprised when we were asking about the preparation of the chicken that we were given a card with the recipe. This is a restaurant I will visit every time I come to New York!

    While this place is a tad pricey, it's in Tribeca so what do you expect? The restaurant has a nice homey feel to it with lots of sunshine filling up the rooms. Our food was delicious and the portions were very adequate to where we walked out more than full. Highly recommend!

    There is a mad genius running that line, Andy K. you're my hero! What a meal! What a team, incredible service and I never once felt that I was dining in a space that was over my head.

    I had two delightful dinners here in a short time span. The ambiance is amazing, so cute and intimate. The service is wonderful and very attentive and the food was truly awesome. The specials were worth trying both times but the main menu was full of winners too. I highly recommend this for date night!
