  • Across the menu, the food, though not particularly adventurous, is much better and fresher than you might expect from a restaurant in one of Manhattans most trafficked hubs.
  • It's like eating in Bryant Park, but with good food
  • Loved the "Pink Me Up" cocktail (refreshing and easy to drink). The tuna crudo was good too.
  • Ok it's their first season and there can be growing pains. But the food and the space are amazing. So much potential and so fun. Love the cocktail reference to the 6 train.
  • Get the mushroom crostini - it's amazing!
  • Great lunch spot. Decor gives a Mediterranean feel. Drinks are costly but the food prices are actually very reasonable. Have the 75 Pavilion Cocktail and save room for one of their sublime desserts.
  • I highly suggest the Rialto cocktail. It's a perfect reminder of the islands, without the sand.
  • amazing hidden gem in union square! I highly recommend the mussels and fries!
  • Had brunch here. We had no reservation but only waited for like 10 minutes. Surprisingly reasonably priced. Food was delicious.
  • The Number 6 for a hot summer day, the Park Side for something deliciously different (Guava. Foam.)
  • Great spot for outdoor drinks!
  • Good place to enjoy a drink outside, with or without a roof. Solid wine list and good calamari.
  • Nice place to have a drink and a bite
  • While the setting is nice, the food, cocktails, and service are all very sub par. Better off getting take out and sitting in the park than eating here.
  • Perfect spot in the middle of Union Square, nicely lit up at night. Drink prices are high, as you would expect.
  • Chicken waffles
  • Lovely spot with tons of outdoor seating and creative menu.
  • Food was much better than I expected. Everything was really good. Mostly light and nice for the hot weather outside. The ribs were probably the highlight. Delicious. And best outdoor seating around.
  • Expensive drinks, but you're paying for the location
  • It's fun to have a drink here in the summer. Can get awfully crowded so be prepared.
