Union Square Off the Radar

There's no dearth of eating around the area, I know, but need recommendations for low-key, kind of quiet, but good, no compromise food.

It's small, it's regionally appropriate, it's exceptional quality...

We just went to Joe Beef the other night. 7PM res and main courses did not arrive until after 8:15 and fish overdone. Lettuce so gritty it was like eating the garden....not from the garden. Servers were lovely and it is not their fault that the kitchen seemed to be in the weeds but it also seems not too smart to have everyone arrive at almost the same time and not pace reservations. Seems to be resting on reputation..would not go again.

The Food is Great But I'll Never Go Back

Noise? Long wait? Ignored reservation? Attitude? Wha will make you not go back to a restaurant even when the food has been fine?

PerLei - Anybody Been There

It has been suggested that we go there but I am worried that it is one of those noisy, jazzy, eastside places - Can anyone educate me? Thanks
