  • Terrible food and slow service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 9/9/2014
    Went here for a business lunch. Never again. Waiter was notably slow to get us drinks and take our order. Chicken was undercooked. Sent it back and they seemed to completely forget about it. Took 20 minutes to get back (and it was the exact piece I sent back, not a newly cooked entree, so how long could it have taken?). Even after that the dish had a very bitter and unpleasant flavor. Left a good part of it on the plate - something I never do. My dining companion left 1/2 of his salad entree uneaten as well. Can't recommend this place.

    Food and service were fantastic. Cocktails were a bit disappointing last time (July 31st), although previously the same cocktails were much better. We also found the place to be noisier than I recall from previous experiences (been there twice, in March and May 2014)

    Went to Church Publick with a few colleagues for lunch. The food was good for pub food and the server was friendly and attentive. The only complaint was that, sitting upstairs, it felt like it was 60 degrees in the restaurant. By the end of lunch, the three of us couldn't wait to leave the restaurant and get out in the hot summer air. But, a good spot for a quick sit-down lunch downtown.

    Pleasantly surprised.A little dark in the booths in the back but was perfectly private for a business lunch. Beet salad was awesome as were pulled park tacos. Great combo.

    I had such a nice time for my birthday with a group of 12 at Church Publick on Friday night - great food, great drinks, great service, and we had a whole section of the upstairs to ourselves. I DEFINITELY recommend this place for group outings - the food is delicious and won't break the bank. Thanks!!

    We went for brunch on a Saturday -- not realizing that they only serve brunch on Sundays, so that was disappointing. However, the food was great. We were the first people in the place and the music was really loud -- so think they are going for a younger crowd. Extensive beer list -- looked amazing. I had the hard cider -- 2 thumbs up.

    We really loved the decor but the music was VERY LOUD so having a conversation was difficult. The service was very good and the menu was interesting. I would recommend this place for anyone who likes their music loud

    I had such a great dinner experience at this lovely little restaurant. The manager greeted and seated us immediately, the wait staff was prompt, friendly and polite and suggested excellent items off the menu and wine list. The wild boar pappardelle is delicious, and the goat cheese gnocchi my friend had was really tasty! The manager on duty was incredibly knowledgeable about the available wines and made sure we had the perfect drink to compliment our dinners. The setting and decor is quaint and inviting, definitely a unique find in Tribeca!

    Good selection of beer. Everything else bland, uninspiring and borderline depressing. We won't be back.

    The space is really cool. But we waited 30+ minutes to order and had to ask the server to come to the table each time we needed something because he never checked in. The food was poorly excuted. The menu looked good, but it was cold on arrival and was cooked by an amateur. Not a great experience.

    Although this place opened about 5 months ago & we live around the corner, we finally managed to pop in for brunch. We were floored: amazing menu, great selection of beers on tap, phenomenal service, and the best "old tribeca" decor we've ever seen executed. From the custom metal work around the bar (including iconic Tribeca pillars in the center of the room) right down to the ceiling lamps that are replicas of the lighting you would find in any old-timey NYC government building, etc. - they nailed it. The breakfast menu is classics re-imagined: the hush puppies breakfast salad was out of this world, the caramelized apple pancakes were phenomenal, and the homemade potato chips toped w/ beer cheese fondu will change your life.

    My first visit was a Friday evening and we were seated near the bar area so it was a tiny bit loud, but fun. I will absolutely go back. The food was delicious! Creative menu yet not too fussy - just excellent food. Our waiter was fab! He was very busy but he somehow managed to be there when we needed him with a "happy to serve you" attitude. In additional to the appetizer section there is a really fun Snack menu. I was with two friends and we each ordered something different and every entre was fantastic. I didn't spend any time at the bar but it looked like a fun area. Overall, there is really cool vibe, great food, and fantastic service!

    would not recommend this place as a restaurant. It is more of a bar vibe with lots of food options. Food is not for foodies. I remember their pretzel bread being amazing. everything else was average.

    This new TriBeCa restaurant has very good food but is overpriced at lunch. That probably explains the lack of customers. They should lower their prices if they want to survive....
