The authentic kitchen serving the Old New York American cuisine embarks you on a culinary journey to remember the NYC by. The menu doesn’t end with the traditional fish and chips or the steak but is well-balanced by the range of Pastas and Salads. The side dishes like Grilled asparagus and Mac & cheese are good if you intend to have a quick bite.

The raw bar is the specialty of the place and everything in that section is flavorsome. The wines are a good accompaniment and so is the desert and cheese. The Sunday Brunch is also delightful.

The Lion Reviews & Ratings

  • I love the intimate vibe of this restaurant, even if you're likely to be in a room jam-packed with celebrities if you go. The decor is elegant but still comfortable and classic. Their menu consists of mostly upscale southern comfort food, and I always look forward to the buttery biscuits they give you before the meal. Their pasta with shaved black truffles on top is one of most luxurious meals I've ever had. Service has always been great and the staff very friendly. A great place to go for special occasions...or if you want to indulge!

  • I brought three friends here with me for the first time for restaurant week and had a less than stellar time but was personally invited back by Lisa the assistant manager and had a LOVELY time. The food was great (the brunch burger is AMAZING, topped with two cheeses and pork belly!). I highly recommend it.

  • The place was really cute, but it seemed too overpriced. I expect delicious food if I'm going to be paying a good amount. I've had much better food at cheaper locations, but the ambiance was fun and they have a huge selection of wine bottles.

  • We're not their target demography.....we know too much and thought the "cool factor" wasn't.........though attractive young people are always attractive. Food is fine. Service is fine. Prices are silly. Way too much noise.

  • As a restaurant this place was just okay. The food, especially for their prices, left a lot to be desired. The service was great though as were their drinks, and as others have noted it attracts a trendy crowd and has a cool atmosphere. In the end I almost felt that we were better off hanging out at the bar.
