Great Ambience; Delicious FoodOpen air and spacious. Bar had a good vibe. Food was delicious. Staff very friendly.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDate night dinner spotGreat find for a date night. The crowd was young 20s/30s and space had an energetic vibe. Almonds is casual yet chic. The food was delicious. We had oysters, squid, and pasta. All dishes were great. I would def go back and recommend.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMvisiting from MiamiWith only a two days visit in NY, a local friend recommended Almond for brunch this past Sunday. We were not dissapointed. the ricotta pancakes were amazing and the huevos rancheros just as good. Our waiter was very gracious and offered several recommendations that were right on point. The little muffins were TDF. We would certainly go back to Almond in our next visit to NY.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find in FlatironA friend and I came across Almond on Opentable as we were looking for a new place to try in an area we don't often go to. It was POURING rain that day but as we settled in at Almond the weather was easily forgotten. Large space, pretty and relaxing setting with lots of wood. The escargot appetizer was wonderful -- tender, flavorful snails with the perfect amount of garlic butter. Moules frite and fish and chips were equally good. And imagine our surprise to find sticky toffee date cake on the dessert menu -- any one who has spent time in the UK couldn't pass it up! Definitely recommended6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprising spot for many occasions.We arrived at 5:30 and were seated but told the dinner menu was not available until 6::00 (the time of our reservation). The waiter took our dinner order in spite of our early arrival. His recommendations and descriptions of the menu items was in depth and on the money. The Friday special, rack of lamb, was excellent.
Don't seat near the bar if you don't want the bustle and noise.
Noticed several families with young children. Tables for six, eight and ten available.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic mealSmoked sturgeon with latkes, grilled asparagus salad, throwback shrimp cocktail, a crisp white burgundy......what's not to love? Will definitely be back!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent brunch with friendsGreat food, great ambiance. I have been before for dinner (excellent food and service!) but I found it equally nice for brunch!
In my top list.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat brunch for our big groupI came here with a party of 6 to kick off a classy bachelorette weekend with brunch. We had a reservation and were promptly seated at a great table exactly at our reservation time. Our server was prompt and attentive, not to mention delightfully engaging - a rare balance. The decor and great natural light give the whole space a great feel. We had a number of people with specific dietary needs (vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free) and everyone easily found something they wanted and agreed the food was delicious. Drinks were also great. Bill was reasonable considering we all ate and drank with brunch, plus coffee at the end. Would definitely come here again!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAlmond NutWhenever a friend asks me to suggest a place for lunch, I always suggest Almond. And for dinner. It is uniformly excellent regarding food and service, which are the two things I care about. Yesterday the server seemed a little distracted, so he gave us less attention, and less prompt attention, than I'm accustomed to. But I really didn't mind, particularly because the manager not only kept checking up on us; he also had the good sense to look up my name on the reservation list when I told him that I'd been there many times before. It's a great restaurant and I hope it never goes out of business.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMJust loveI've been here at least a dozen times. Love the whole place. Recently had their "Meatless Monday" menu - and it was wonderful ! Highly recommend.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service was superb.The food and service was superb.

The wait staff and hosts are all super-friendly5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently very good, aConsistently very good, a great place to meet friends. The energy is up there, but not overwhelming. (Just don't sit too close to the bar is you want to have conversation.)4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSeasonal changeThe menu is changing with the season so it's a great time to visit either because the winter favorites (like Brussels sprouts two ways)are leaving or new dishes (like the new Italian style pork chop) are arriving.
The food is always prepared with care (as in a presentation you like) and I always see plenty of management in the large dining room.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistentI find the friendly, consistent, delivery of Almond exactly what you want from a lunch spot. No surprises and they focus on you.
I really like the salad Nicoise (poor spelling skills) and they often ask if I would like one, even when it's not on the menu.
A great burger is always on the menu and my associates who have been before ask if we can go to Almond when we have a return visit.
GO! and try anything at all, you will not be disappointed.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe seafood at Almond is terrificThe seafood at Almond is terrific - the mussels and marianated octopus being real standouts. Nice waitstaff and friendly people at reception could not do enough to make you feel more welcome.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMCasual ambiance, food wasCasual ambiance, food was delicious. I had the scallops, which were cooked perfectly, and a few vegetable sides as appetizers. We had reservations for 5 at 9:15PM, however our table wasn't ready -- we waited for about 30 minutes. The host, Clay, was very gracious and apologetic, and went out of his way to be as accommodating as possible. I'll definitely be back.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMRoom is pretty, seating comfortableRoom is pretty, seating comfortable, easy varied menu. My only complaint was how the waitress poured the wine.....giant glasses and when the bottle quickly became empty she cheerily said, "Would you like another bottle?". We each ordered another glass because we hadn't finished our meal but were annoyed at the hustle.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMost reliableI do not believe there is a more reliable, professional, restaurant experience in Flatiron District.
Nice diversity on the menu, service never leaves you feeling forgotten and the menu has something for everyone including a very fair prix fixe.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMI adore Almond. It's my go-toI adore Almond. It's my go-to spot for business lunches as I work close by. They do everything to accommodate you. The food is terrific. Service is always wonderful.

Only complaint: our Huevos Rancheros came to the table lukewarm. Kind of surprising as it came out of the kitchen within 10 minutes of ordering.
Just TRY to resist the scones served gratis!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a really great brunch.Had a really great brunch. Loved the biscuits given before we got our meal.

Almond is always full, so there is a nice vibe, and that tells you that hundreds of us know that there is fresh, reliable fare -- roasted chicken, bass, steak frites.... every night.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGood reliable local restaurant.Good reliable local restaurant. Nothing is going to wow you on the menu, but it is still good food. Service is friendly and quick. Good bar area too. Plenty to like here.2/6/2013 12:00:00 AMChill, hip and awesome!Love this place...one of my top 10 in NYC. Teddy the waiter has been waiting on me for 10 years at Zuni Cafe in San Francisco, when he moved to NYC I told him to apply here and they hired him on the spot. So now I have a little more cool West Coast vibe in my second city here in NYC also at one of my favorite haunts!1/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous brunchI've been here twice for brunch and have never been disappointed. The French toast is phenomenal, and the place overall is really well-priced for brunch. Almond itself is an adorable place, and the staff is very attentive.
I would absolutely suggest this to anyone!1/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
