A word from Almond
Almond, an American bistro located in New York City’s bustling Flatiron District, combines the best of farm-to-table cuisine in a casually elegant atmosphere.
Co-owner and Executive Chef Jason Weiner offers a menu of accessible dishes that put market-fresh ingredients center stage. Classic Almond dishes include Steamed Black Mussels with Shallots and White Wine and Roast Chicken with Hand-Crushed Potatoes and Natural Jus, while a list of “plats du jour” range from Roasted Whole Fish to Heritage Farms Porkchop to Rack of Lamb.
Our wine list, handpicked by co-owner Eric Lemonides, offers an affordable selection of wines from regions across France and California. A specialty cocktail list, New York state craft beer selection, and raw bar selections are all available, along with our entire menu, at the restaurant’s spacious 20-seat bar.

Private dining spaces are perfect for larger parties and a hidden European-style billiards room adds to the restaurant’s charm.

Diner Reviews
  • "had a wonderful evening. delicious food and very friendly vibe. would return again"
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "This is one of my favorite spots in the flatiron neighborhood -- perfect for meeting up with friends after work, etc. Really love the lighting and vibe"

  • "We came with a group of 7. We kept having to repeat requests, as they wouldn't bring water until the 3rd time & kept forgetting the bread. They accidentally poured half a glass of wine down my friends pants, but still served the same spilled wine to my other friend (Half full!). They brought me a glass of wine covered in lipstick. When I complained, he brought me a new empty glass and was going to pour the wine from the dirty glass into the new glass. I had to tell him I wanted a new glass with new wine. My other friend is a celiac. We said that she is highly allergic to gluten, and checked to make sure that the mussels were going to come without bread. They brought the mussels with bread, and we had to send them back."

  • "Had brunch here the other day. First time here. Way overpriced. Food just ok. Eggs for 3 people and the bill with tax and tip was close to $100. I'll stick with my local diner, where the omelettes are cheaper and way better. The wait staff was amazing though. Considering the crowd they were really on the ball. Best part of the brunch was the service."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Everything about this restaurant was excellent! All four people in our party had an enjoyable time and fantastic food. Highly recommend for brunch and the duck hash was superb. We will definitely return here, possibly for dinner and drinks next time!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "It was my second time at Almond. The first time was for lunch, it was unpack, people were very friendly. My second try, for dinner, was disappointed. Drinks took for ever to come. The menu was not appealing and the food served was OK, not excellent considering the price we paid. Will try again for brunch."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Almond takes a traditional brunch menu of comforting favorites and elevates each dish with surprising ingredients and preparations- Excellent food consistently- Noise levels are a bit trying- but that is because the atmosphere is open and casual- and its popularity make it a crowded destination on weekends"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Decent food, but nothing I would go back to repeat unless I was out of options. Ricotta Pancakes seemed good. Duck confit hash was nothing special. Waitress seemed to be either new and un-knowledgeable or hungover. My party guessed the latter. It's a surprisingly large place, seems like it would be good for groups."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Wanted a place with good food where we could actually carry on a conversation without shouting. We asked for a table away from the noise. We were seated in a large booth in the back where we could stretch out, have a wonderful meal, and talk in moderate tones. Overall a terrific experience. All the staff we came in contact with were friendly, professional, made for a pleasant evening. Would definitely recommend."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "The food is always exceptional. Great portions, everything is tasty and cooked to perfection. However, I have been there numerous times and the service is always hit or miss."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "I'm not sure how to explain this restaurant other then OK. The food was very tasty, but nothing to write home about. If you are looking for a tasty meal it is certainly worth a try, but it's not a place I would recommend running to or even going back to. The food didn't stand out and the price was rather high."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Have eaten before at Almond NYC so we were disappointed in our most recent experience, not all entrees were not up to their normal standard, not well cooked or not hot when served. But we like Almond, and also its eastern LI version, and chalk it up to an off night."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Came in for lunch and have sporadically enjoyed Almond's hospitality in the past. Food was delicious and their Lunch prix-fixe menu is an outstanding deal, both in price and food quality. Will still definitely be back!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Stumbled upon this place just walking around the neighborhood. I was intrigued by the Vespa parked outside, as I love any kind of French food. The hybrid French-American bistro menu is sure to please any foodie, and the diverse wine list surprises as well. Celebrated my first wedding anniversary here with my wife. Our server was great, and even brought us a free dessert. Thanks!! Highly recommended. Might've found a new favorite spot in the neighborhood!"
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "The staff was nice, the food was good for the most part. I had fish and my fiance had steak. His steak was a little more well done than he ordered and my fish wasn't as hot as I would have liked it, but the flavors were really great. I had requested a dessert with a candle for my fiance's birthday and they didn't bring anything out. Just the check after we finished eating. Overall it was not amazing, not bad... just good."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Been there a few times and was a little disappointed this time. Branzino was not particularly good and was a very small portion. I didn't like the accompanying 'mix' at all. Brussels sprout salad is very tasty. Mac and cheese is very tasty."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "I was craving for a prix fix set lunch and searched for something that's suitable for my dietary restrictions. Searched all over and found Almond from a blog. They turned out to be great! The menu had several options to choose from. I had the Quinoa with winter veggies, the dish was hearty and very tasty! The only thing I didn't like was that there wasn't an option for dessert - they had option of house wine or beer."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The quality, presentation and taste of the food were wonderful. Our waiter could have used a lesson in table manners."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Server was a little shakey on special for the night, although the service from the host and attention to detail on request from opentable was spot on. Food was prepared perfect to order and Bacon Appetizer was worth sharing with friends and family. Overall well worth the prices. Local brew beers always a plus. Would dine again."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Needed a spot for a business lunch that afforded a relaxing atmosphere - a bit of "in" and an ability to converse....found it at Almond. Appetizers were fabulous....recommend highly the brussel sprouts!!...entrees more than "fine" ... will go again...."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Every time I go to Almond, I'm not disappointed. I've been for brunch and dinner numerous times, and every dish I get is wonderful. It's my neighborhood staple when i want to take friends or family somewhere I know everyone can find something they like - and they always do. Props to Almond for always being a great experience."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Never before have I had something so delicious! Great for any picky eater!"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Place was busy for a Sunday evening, which is a good sign. Food and service were spot on. Marinated octopus was a bit under seasoned but the cavatelli was very well done. Sticky toffee date cake was a bit pedestrian."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "My friend and I enjoyed Sunday brunch at Almond! The service was excellent, even as the restaurant filled up. We ordered two cocktails: one off the menu and one that the bartender was able to create for us. We split the ricotta pancakes and the almond hash, both of which were outstanding. And it was a lot of food. But we still managed to eat those wonderful mini biscuits they give. Overall, an excellent dining experience and we will return."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Great for groups and the menu caters to any brunch craving."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Food was wonderful! Service great! Best mussels since San Francisco 1988! Brussels sprouts were amazing! I would love the recipe, I shared with a friend and she wanted To take them back with her . I took a slice of milk chocolate and caramel pie, but never had a chance to enjoy it! Hope the maid liked it! Would recommend to anyone . Great food, great service and reasonable prices!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "I'm a huge fan of Dinner at Almond, but hadn't been there for Brunch before. It was fantastic, same great service with one of the broadest food selections I've seen at Brunch in sometime - ideal for groups. We were able to order great seafood items like chilled lobster to start, and then things you'd expect for brunch like Eggs Florentine and Buttermilk Waffles. The Almond Hash (duck hash) is the way to go if you want something hearty. Major points on having celery-salted rims for the Bloody Marys too!"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "very good food, exceptionally attentive, caring service. Noisy-my only complaint"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "It's very cute and not overpriced and good food! Perfect for a work lunch as well!"
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Almond was recommended by family members who work in the neighborhood. I was taking a client and colleagues to lunch. Only thing I can say is that the food was very good, very tasty, nicely presented and of good size; not too little, not overwhelming. It was an early lunch so hard to comment on what might be at other times. But, my guests' first reaction to the room and feel of the place was "very cool". I don't think you'll be disappointed!"
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "best brussels sprouts i've ever had- the hot & cold salad! everything else was to die for. i'll definitely continue to go back :-)"
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "I have been coming here for years and also in Bridgehampton, never dissappoints"
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "great restaurant: nice ambience, solid and consistent food. went with a group of 6 and were seated with only 4 while we waited for the others, which I appreciated. We ordered scallop and fennel crudo (best appetizer, nice balance of flavors), marinated octupus (too chewy), short ribs (good), brussel sprouts(too greasy and a little undercooked for my taste), mushroom dashi, roasted cauliflower (good), beet salad (too little beets for a beet salad but otherwise nicely seasoned), smoked duck breast (nicely presented but too dry), arctic char (best standout dish of the night)."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "That's what my daughter thinks anyway, but the rest of the food there is delicious too and the service was very friendly. I had 4 "tweeen" girls with me and the waiter treated them/us like royalty. Love this place."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "I hate writing the but in the headline--yet I can't help it. The food was terrific. Homey--if your mother were an amazing cook who elevated the lowly Brussel sprout with a hot/col Caesar Salad presentation that made it a great dish--not just a great salad or veggie or starter. The pork chop was as good as any kind of piece of meat I have had in ages. The service is friendly and attentive. I think the but is for the decor/atmosphere. A little faux Vermonty, with a touch of hipster. Still, I'd go back. And soon."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Came here for Valentine's Day weekend brunch. Nothing but great reviews. The hosts were calm and friendly during rush hour. No snubs of the sort. The crowd all came to have a good time The waiter was pleasant, helpful with the menu and not pushy at all. Refilled drinks when necessary and was always around when needed. Can't say nothing but good things about this place."

  • "We had to wait for a long time to get a table despite our reservation, but the food was excellent and the managers/waitstaff were exceptionally accommodating to the delay...would definitely recommend/go back."

  • "I booked this restaurant because I had a previous experience there. It was one of the only ones left on Open Table for an 8pm reservation on Valentines day. The food turned out too rich for my taste. Too much salt in dishes. Not what I seek in a healthy lifestyle. Service was not timely. Seemed like the manager was more attentive than our Server. Yes, it was a busy night, but there was enough staff to manage."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We had a pretty bad experience, unfortunately. Our cauliflower appetizer was almost inedible - it wasn't cooked through. One of us had to hold it in place while the other cut it. Shouldn't that type of dish slice away at the touch of a butter knife? My short rib gnocchi was basically two honking pieces of beef placed on top of about 7 pieces of pasta. I love a steak, but I would have ordered one if I had known that's what this was. And the service was courteous, but VERY slow and clumsy. For example, hen we ordered dessert (vanilla ice cream - hard to mess up), I asked for it twice and it then arrived so late that I had already signed the check. I should've known when I booked 3 days in advance for a holiday and a table was available."
