    Been to Butter and visited this to continue the Food Network channel chefs restaurants. Fantastic experience and food was delicious. It's very upscale so be prepared to spend some money but it's worth it even it's just one time.

    IMO this place didn't earn it's stars. It's definitely good but most of the food wasnt amazing. The octopus was amazing though. If you're going here get that!

    The plates are small, but there is a real care taken to serve well thought out and delicious food combinations. The dark chocolate dessert is truly amazing.

    I was so excited about Gato, but honestly was very surprised at how unnecessarily DARK it was in this restaurant. The decor was clearly beautiful, rustic and modern, but so ridiculously dark. The bathroom was even darker, which i found hilarious; i'm really hoping that the dim-lit bathrooms was not a calculated move to hide lack of cleanliness. I had the pork chop but unfortunately it was a little over-done. Not a huge deal; the presentation was decent. The real downside for me was the fact that two members in my party explained to staff that they were allergic to nuts. Later in the dinner however, they were brought a dessert with nuts in it after the request to remove nuts was confirmed. Bizarre. And slightly dangerous. They were quick to resolve the situation and no allergic reactions ruined the night. Overall, it just wasn't what we expected. I was so hopeful too...

    Everything I've tried at this restaurant is amazing and extremely flavorful, as expected from Bobby Flay restaurant. The scrambled egg appetizer was pretty memorable and so was their best selling dish, vegetarian paella. I've had the rabbit entre few times and it has been consistently perfect. The pork chop is the best I've ever had. It is really juicy and full of flavor unlike most dry pork chops. The desserts are also fantastic. Cool ambience but they do book out on weekend nights and it gets a bit noisy.

    Worth the wait and deserves all the hype. The menu, while limited in terms of choices, encourages sharing and multiple courses. The bar is always active, the staff is attentive and professional. Get adventurous with the extensive wine list.

    Beautiful space! We walked in after a long day of exploring the city and had a great time relaxing with with a cocktail. They had an extensive beer list from around the world, and the latte I order was large and delicious (exactly what I needed). Highly recommend.

    The food was sooo delicious. We tried Lot of different things and none of it disappointed. Also girl who was our server was so nice and attentive even though she was a bit busy. The restaurant is on a pricier side but for a New York totally expected!

    Foot was fine, the place was unbearably noisy. I eat out regularly but this was exceptionally bad. The food did not compensate. Even with 4 people a conversation was painful. We got all 12 of the little appetizers. They were good, but none were outstanding. The mains were fine (again, nothing outstanding), and the portions were relatively small. The salmon was ok. The octopus was the only great dish all evening. The service was good - in good humor and attentive. Overall, nowhere near worth the price.

    Gato was simply amazing. The staff genuinely takes the time and effort to make you feel like they really care about your evening. The octopus was hands down the best octopus I've ever had. They have rabbit on the menu that was also excellent. Even the drinks served were the best we had our entire trip. Can not recommend strongly enough to come to Gato if you are able to.
