A word from Apple Restaurant & Bombar
A quiet, beautiful fountain greets guests as they enter, leading to a large, cavernous space filled with Asian-inspired artworks on the walls. Burgundy velvet curtains drape from the high ceiling separating the wooden piano-shaped bar and cozy lounge from the spacious dinning room able to accommodate to 120 guests. Toward the back in a more exclusive room that can seat up to 45 guests, which resembles a recording studio, is the Red Den- an intimate karaoke room that can host private parties for all occasions. Apple restaurant is the ideal destination spot for those in search of a great, relaxed ambiance and delicious, healthy Pan-Asian and vegetarian cuisine. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Last minute reservation for 8 @ 7:30p on a Saturday was fabulous . Unfortunately, table located close to the private Kareoke room where a bunch of ladies were exercising there vocals. "

  • "The restaurant was lovely, as was the ambience. The drinks, appetizers and desserts were delicious, especially the vegetarian sushi, spring rolls, quinoa salad. The entrees were generous portions, but on the bland side. Overall, would still go back, but probably not for dinner."

  • "I work right around the corner (at NYU) and Apple has become my go-to-place for business meals, The food is always great (the steak wrap is my fave) and the prices are great. It can get a bit loud depending on how crowded it is"

  • "Had a great time w/ a friend right before Christmas. The drinks are tasty and potent, while the food is delicious, w/ lots to choose from. The service was great, as our server, Amanda was friendly and helpful! Looking forward to returning soon!"

  • "The food was great. The only issue was that some of the dishes had cooled off by the time it reached us. Our waitress was wonderful if a bit overworked, as there was a large group that came at about the same time as we did. A little more staff on a Friday night would do wonders. On the whole, looking forward to going back."

  • "I went here for a family birthday dinner. The drinks were great, and everyone really enjoyed their meals. The service was a little slow, but I think it was mostly so we could enjoy our meal without feeling rushed. My only comment is that I would have liked a little more variety on the vegetarian menu."

  • "My friends and I enjoyed the service, drinks and food! The place is unpretentious but has a great vibe. A great spot for happy hour, food, friends and good times! My good friend had a great kickstart to her birthday!"

  • "Pleasantly surprised!!!! Picked this restaurant becasue the one I really wanted wasn't available and was certainly delighted by the service. We stayed there at the table way after we had finished our meal but we were not rushed or were made to feel we had to leave so we kept drinking. Service was outstanding and the server was knowledgeable about the items in the menu to make recos as we had questions. I was even more surprised about the check as after all we ate and drank it came way under what we expected great find."

  • "There are lots of different seating which me and my date LOVED. we managed to grab a cute little booth in the corner of the restaurant. We ordered beer samplers with our meal which was great because we could not decide on what we wanted to drink. The seafood wontons were great, especially those two sauces that they came served on top of (both worked great). i had the pan seared sesame crusted tuna but it was a bit overcooked so i recommend ordering medium. They put a green sauce on top that did not go with the dish at all. so ask for it on the side if you want to try this dish. the coconut curry was amazing, the shrimp was def a good choice to go inside ( thanks to our waiter for the recommendation ). they have a karoke room as well."

  • "Stopped in before a performance at the Skirball Center at NYU. It was very early and quite empty. We had a good experience. The waitress was friendly and the food very good. I would go back the next time I'm in the area."

  • "This is one of my FAVORITE places to dine in NYC. I have never had a bad experience. The menu offers something for everyone, regardless of dietary preference (vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, etc.). In addition to the amazing food, the service is always top-notch. The staff is friendly, professional and very patient when the rest of your party shows up a bit later than you."

  • "Dim lighting and beaten up furniture and look. Sauted Octopus was pretty bad, salad was unspectacular and shrimp overcooked and textureless. We will not be back."
    Dined on 12/7/2012
  • "Surprisingly, most of the reviews were correct...I did enjoy the meal. We had the cucumber crab rolls to start and then the Apple’s Signature Broiled Boneless Vietnamese Duck. For this type of restaurant, (so don't go expecting NOBU,) it was good. It's near NYU campus and it was laid back with a pleasant atmosphere. I would dine here again."

  • "This restaurant is close to NYU Tisch School of The Arts, where we were seeing a production. The service was very friendly and attentive. The food was inventive in a good way and delicious. Nice atmosphere. Definitely recommended!"

  • "Found on a convenient Pan-Asian restaurant for all of us to meet downtown on Open Table. Was a good find. Sat for quite a while and was never rushed. Will certainly return."
    Dined on 9/29/2012
  • "I really love this place! It is definitely at the top of my list of faves here in NYC. Perhaps it is the warm service, the atmosphere, the way the food feeds both my body and soul, the fact that I love the neighborhood, or maybe the good friends I dine with here. Nevertheless, I always have a very enjoyable dining experience at Apple. As a matter of fact, I'm already planning my next visit!"

  • "Expected a fancier place, internet photos were deceiving.Photos make it seem pretty upscale ,it was not. Clean but not where you'd dress up to go or take someone for a special meal. Seemed like a good university student place to eat. I was looking for a more sophisticated atmosphere/ menu."

  • "As a group of 7, we usually cause a scene wherever we go, but Apple Restaurant & BomBar was prepared for us to bring the crazy. It was very quiet in there when we arrived at 8:30, no one in the bar and very few people in the seating area. We were given plenty of time to figure out what to order and the wait staff gave recommendations. The drinks were strong, the food was AMAZING. (But the desserts were a little odd). We would DEFINITELY come here again as a group!"

  • "I always find that Apple has consistently good food with great service. It is so easy!"
    Dined on 2/14/2012
  • "Pick this restaurant for its proximity to NYU, which we were taking a tour of that day, and based upon the reviews on OpenTable. We hit the whole gamut, appetizers, entrees and dessert. All dishes were good, and the wait staff was attentive, but not constantly at our table (which is nice). The Vietnamese dishes were the highlight, and finishing with the Vietnamese coffee (iced) was the perfect ending. If you are touring/visiting NYU, this is a great location to start/finish your tour as it is only two blocks from the welcome center."

  • "This place has reasonably priced food that tastes great. The menu has many options that are veggie friendly. Also, it is good for groups. Not too loud, but spacious."

  • "Met a colleague for lunch, the lunch box prices and value are both fantastic. Will definitely return and highly recommend!"
    Dined on 10/19/2011
  • "Very average food, nothing special. My snapper was under seasoned. Liked the sofas, some staff are very attentive and courteous to you I guess it's because there weren't many clients that night but still very well appreciated."
    Dined on 10/13/2011
  • "The surprise I had placed within OpenTable for the special occasion worked. The staff acknowledged the requests and followed up several times to setup the place and the food choices. This is to me, one of the best services tended till date."

  • "This was a terrific find. The sea bass soup for two was delicious as was the perfectly prepared duck. Give this place a try!"
    Dined on 9/7/2011
  • "Overall good experience. Have been here a couple of times. The signature duck dish is great."
    Dined on 7/30/2011
  • "Very good food consistently. I've been going there for years."
    Dined on 6/11/2011
  • "Great for Vegetarians and meat-eaters alike! I was looking for a place that would accommodate both, and with an entire page of apps and entrees this definitely won everyone over. The Chicken Pho was pretty good, but not the best I've had."
    Dined on 5/26/2011
  • "The decor is great, it's a really nice-looking restaurant, and the service was attentive and friendly but... Pretty empty for a Saturday night. My dish was awful, couldn't eat more than one bite. The dishes my friends ordered were mediocre. Definitely not coming back."
    Dined on 5/14/2011
  • "I have been here a few time and it keeps getting better each time. Took my three kid with me the last visit and the staff went out of their way to make them feel comfortable. I will definitely be back."

  • "Very pretty, with lounge, karaoke room, and tables set at comfortable distances from each other. Excellent service, interesting menu, reasonable prices. Only problem is some seats are benches without backs, you might want to specify when you reserve..."
    Dined on 4/2/2011
  • "Very good chicken wraps with an unusual spiciness. Shoe string fries were served HOT, which makes all the difference - were great. Ambiance is very exotic, Eastern and fun to see after walking around the Village. Would return, if we're in the neighborhood again."

  • "We were there on Saturday, March 12--our server visited our table as rarely as she could and a nearby table complained about it too. Maybe better training is needed? The bbq pork chops were amazing."
    Dined on 3/12/2011
  • "The food was excellent. We had their special duck, the crispy whole fish, and the rice crepe and all were outstanding. The service was great, they answered all our questions in a friendly and helpful way. Food allergies were taken seriously and accommodated without a problem. We all loved our experience dining there."

  • "The service left a little to be desired but over all it was a good time. I would definitely go back."

  • "My friend and I had a light dinner here on a Friday night and it was delicious! The restaurant itself only had about half of its tables filled. This place is great for a quick meal or snack before hitting the bars. We started off with the tuna and mango spring rolls and the octopus appetizers. Both very yummy. The octopus was a bit on the small side if you're going to share. For dessert we had the green tea ice cream and the bananas flambe. The bananas were a bit of a disappointment; once you get over the spectacle, it's just a few pieces of banana with tapioca balls. Our waiter disappeared about halfway through the night and we got a new server but then he reappeared when collecting the check. Overall though, Apple is great!"

  • "For a group of 5 we did not really needed a reservation on Friday at 10pm, as there were empty tables. The bar and lounge scene looked very busy with people having fun. Lamb chops were remarkable, other food was just good. Good service overall."
    Dined on 1/28/2011
  • "We really enjoyed our evening here. Our meals were delicious and the staff were very attentive and helpful. This place is cool without the attitude from staff that you get at many of NY's 'hot spots'. Happy hour at their beautiful bar is another bonus. Highly recommended!"
