    Chose to dine at Bread with a friend literally thirty minutes before dinner. Beautiful little place with wonderful lighting and great music (that definitely got a bit louder into the night). The Lasagna was decent but my friend loved his turkey burger.

    This was my second visit. Last time 17 months ago. Both times the same - very hip with great food. Had the short rib special and probably the best short ribs I have ever had. Virtually no fat and fork tender. Everyone thought the food wonderful except the quinou which was pretty good. There are distinct seating areas. Front by the bar which gets very crowded or the back which is less vibrant but better for dinner. We were put in between by the bathrooms and they pushed tables together for our party of 6. Definitely got the vibe that is where they put us less pretty old folks - a bit of a put off - but had a memorable night anyway. I will go back again.

    The food is good here, but the service when we went in was terrible. We had to ask for everything, no one paid any attention to us and the restaurant was not even full or that busy. The bus boy was the best service we received there.

    I had visitors from Germany and we had really nice nyc brunch there, a bit noisy but we were there at the pick time, so it should be expected. Very nice and friendly waitress, defiantly will do it again

    Service so bad that decent food didn't help the experience. Inexplicably - given the restaurant's name - the meager amount of bread was tasteless.

    Perfect little spot to sneak into to escape the hustle and bustle outside its door. The food is comfort food. Exactly that. No more, no less. Perfect for a simple meal in a simple setting. The staff, particularly our odalisque waitress, could not have been more accommodating. Definitely recommend the Kale Salad, but the sandwich options were yummy too.

    Great vibe at the restaurant. The tomato soup was wonderful. So was our mushroom tortellini. But the best part was the dense super delicious chocolate mousse. Will put this on the list of regular spots to visit! Staff was friendly and just the perfect amount of attentiveness.
