Everything was great at Astor Street. It was a little odd that we showed up at 5pm on Saturday night, and we were the only customers there (except the wedding reception in the next room). The next customers didn't show up until about 6pm. This restaurant (inside the Astor Hotel) is fabulous, but make a reservation, just to play it safe. There are only about 20 or so tables in the restaurant, so it has the possibility of filling up quickly.
Pros: not croweded, great value
Cons: street parking
