    We arrived on time for our 9:30 dinner Saturday night. We were having dinner with friends from out of town so we wanted to have a slow meal. We ordered drinks and soon after we ordered a few apps (food and apps were reallllllly good). At 11:02 we ordered our entrees. The manager soon came over to tell us the kitchen was closed. This was pretty infuriating since we cam in to order dinner and we told our waiter the same thing. We left and went to a Bubby's for our entrees and dessert. We won't be going back which is a bummer because we really liked the restaurant at first.

    We had brunch here recently and I say it was an all around great spot. We had a seat right by the window, which I think is probably nicer than actually sitting outside. The outdoor patio is kind of in a parking lot, but the view is nice from inside. We ordered the mushroom and truffle omelet and the poached egg and hash. Both were delicious. I tend to order anything that says truffle, sometimes it's heaven on a plate and other times it disappoints. But this truffle omelet was one of the good times. It will probably be my go-to meal whenever I come here.

    Incompetent host, no one was waiting and be couldn't figure out his clip board or my reservation on OpenTable. Asked our name 3 times. He finally sat us after 6 minutes. He was acting like he was either high or had 10 cups of Java. I had the breakfast menu "pancakes+eggs", my eggs were ordered hard came over easy.

    The food was tasty, though nothing extraordinary. There is a view of the river- though it's across the street from the highway which blocks part of the view. We were virtually the only ones in the restaurant and received good service. It's a nice place to go for some light food and if the weather is nice to sit outside.

    Everything about Bakehouse was perfect - the food, the drinks, the service - except for the outdoor dining area. The view is the west side highway which is noisy and really blocks the view of the Hudson. The noise coupled with the less than average view is the only thing dragging this rating down - but the food is phenomenal! The French toast is a must have!

    Had Sunday brunch with my son on our last day in New York. Our requested table was by the window and the whole experience was just wonderful. The service was friendly and attentive, with excellent cocktail and wine recommendations. The food was exceptional, I had a beef short rib hash and my son had salmon eggs Benedict which he said "were the best he had in his life"! All in all could not fault any aspect of the experience and would highly recommend this restaurant. Five stars all round !

    My husband picked this place for dinner as my sister was in town visiting. I was sceptical but it turned out ok, but I would not say 'great'. The bread was great and so was the fish special (red snapper) but the pasts bummed. Service was very good though. We would return, perhaps for lunch.

    Great food. The host was excellent. I would go back and recommend the salmon entree. One issue though, the server came to the table to check on us at inappropriate times on more than 1 occasion. And we understood it was packed but we were offered the check while we were biting into our dessert. Felt a bit rushed.

    I enjoyed our brunch experience at Bakehouse. As recommended by other customers, we ordered pastries first and then the meal. All the food was superb. We had salmon eggs benedict and eggs florentine. We also ordered mimosas which were fine. Our waiter was pleasant and efficient. The only complaint was that the food was a little pricier than were used to.

    Brought some out of town relatives here for dinner at the recommendation of a friend. Food was very good, drinks were very good, view was very good. Service was excellent. We got there a bit early for dinner so it was pretty quiet when we arrived but busy when we left. Noise level was perfect for conversation, which is exactly what we wanted.

    This is a great place for brunch! The food is good - I had the egg sandwich on a croissant (delish) and the Go Green juice I had was also delicious. My dad didn't think the chicken sandwich was very good though (bland), which is why it's 4 stars instead of 5.

    A small dinner menu with a couple of specials led me to believe that the food would be better than it was. Beet salad was drowned in dressing and the organic chicken was uninteresting. The space is bright and open with views of the water, the wait staff is pleasant and accommodating and that goes a long way. However for the noise level is too high. Plenty of other places in the West Village to choose from.

    Food was OK. I had the ricotta pancakes and they were very dry. Service was bad. Our waitress pretty much ignored us after she took our order. We had to ask the Manager for our check because our waitress was busy with the customers that ordered cocktails. Restaurant was very noisy. Will not return. The next time I want ricotta pancakes, I will go to Sarabeth's where the service is better.

    Waiter thought he was special, but he was quite lacking. Table of 4 got 3 pieces of bread the size if a 1/2 piece of sandwich loaf. Had to ask for more twice. Water ran out. One person didn't like cocktail but was charged for it. Beet salad served instead if lamb meatballs for appetizer. Dessert menu served while used dinner plates were still on table. No decaf coffee available. It goes on and on. It became a bit silly.

    This is the second time I've been to Bakehouse for brunch, and am consistently happy when I do. It has a really fun atmosphere (although sometimes a little too loud for normal conversation), the decor is great, it over looks the westside highway, but past that the Hudson River park. The food is simple but well-executed, and really good-sized portions. My husband had the short rib hash which really was delicious, I had the breakfast platter that came with eggs, your choice of pancakes or french toast, and your choice of bacon or sausage. The french toast was thick brioche, and crispy on the outside and soft on the inside (perfect!), the bacon was really great, and even my scrambled eggs were seasoned really nicely! We'll be back again.

    Visually, the space at Bakehouse is wonderful. It is both country-rustic, yet elegant at the same time, a bit like certain French country places. The "happy hour" $1 oysters are a good deal, although it is shocking that they don't have cocktail sauce to serve with the oysters. (The spicy vinaigrette they give you instead overpowers the oysters; we didn't use it.) My burger was very good; my wife's onion soup just okay. That's all we had, so our info is limited.

    Food was outstanding! Steak tartare has a nice little kick of spice, which was great. I loved their use or Harissa in a lot of their dishes. Also had the ham and cheese croquettes, side of fries and a duck confit pizza. Loved it all, but the tartare was definitely the star of the show. For dessert, the banana bread pudding with brown sugar ice cream: HOLY. So good.

    Came here for dinner on Valentine's Day and loved it. The service was excellent, food was good and it had a nice and chill ambience to it. The early 90's hip hop music playing was also a plus!! Try the calamari as a starter for sure as well as the creme puffs for dessert! Would definitely come back here.

    Bakehouse was great! The food was delicious (I got the steak tartare, my friend got one of the pizzas and a side of brussels sprouts) and the wine was an average price for New York. The view was beautiful as well. It's a huge, lofty looking space that could definitely host large groups. Will absolutely be going back!
