Excellent food at a great location

I went for supper at Gato on a Saturday night with a group of 5. The setting is great and atmosphere was fantastic for a Saturday night. We found the music a little loud but we enjoyed the party mode. We tried several dishes including:

Lamb sausage pizza - a must have

Tuna tartar - very good

Meat tartar - also very good

Rabbit main dish - excellent

Steak main dish - excellent

The portions were a good size and the wine selection was very affordable. The service was excellent and I would recommend it to anybody looking for a fanatic meal in NYC
I was pretty excited to eat at Gato but I have to say I was a bit disappointed. The food is pretty good - definitely tasty - but I didn't have the greatest experience with the service. I came here with a party of 6 and we had a reservation for 8:00...we didn't end up getting seated at our table till over 45 minutes later :/ In place itself is very trendy and pretty upscale with a lively atmosphere and cool decor. The menu has interested tapas-style food as well as classic entrees - definitely on the pricier side, though (my steak entree was $42). At many restaurants I find the appetizers are actually better than the entrees, but that was not the case here! The apps were ok and small portioned, but my steak was tasty, flavorful and well-cooked. The only downside was it was a bit too salty for my liking. Cocktails were pretty tasty ($16 each) Overall, the vibes here are pretty cool/trendy but in terms of service, food and value there are better restaurants out there.
Fantastic across the board!!!  Derek is an amazing server, a true professional.  There are no words for how absolutely delicious the food is, try the Roasted Octopus as a starter.  Black Fettuccine or Porterhouse Pork Chop or Rabbit...followed by the Pistachio Lemon Olive Oil Cake, right!?! Insane!
