    love dinning at greenwich project the food is wonderful every time, the fall menu is an amazing display of culinary talent blending the "classic" autumn flavors, to taste robust and amazing prepared sweet potato gnocchi with pulled pork and pecorino followed by the branzino why dine elsewhere!

    The service was terrible. Mir took forever for someone to bring us water, take our drink order, bring us menus etc. and the food was just not good. I got the croque Madame and it was a sad little grilled ham and cheese sandwich with a dry fried egg thrown on top. That is not a croque madame and definitely something I could have made at home better. Too many other great brunch places to even remotely consider going back here.

    Lovely decor in restaurant. Quality of food was good but nothing was amazing with the exception of the beignets (highly recommended. Fresh pressed juices were also very nice. Pork belly hash was very light on the pork belly. Eggs benedict were good but not amazing. Truffle egg salad was extremely light on truffle - to the point that two out of three people at our table couldn't taste the truffle at all. Waiter was friendly but not the most competent waiter in the world. Cheque was brought before asking if we wanted anything else.

    We had a fabulous dining experience! Our server was wonderful and informative of the specials and the menu items. We had the pear salad of fresh arugala, whipped roquefort, sweet and crispy pears and walnuts all of which complimented each other so well. Delicious! We also had the steak tartar (a special), which was chilled to perfection with the just the right amount of spicy. For entrees we had the petite filet, flavorful and juicy and the branzino which was one of the best fish dishes I've ever tasted; so unique and well-composed. Thank you, Greenwich and Chef Carmine!

    I'd been here for drinks in the past, but never tried their food. a friend and I decided to stop by for brunch and were far from disappointed. Their brunch cocktails were completely unique and delicious! She had a bloody mary and I went with the kale cocktail. The presentation of the food was incredible and the food itself was delicious! Would highly recommend for brunch.

    Yes this place is amazing. Loved the food. Dined here with some friends for a neighborhood place. But I was wrong. Food, service, ambiance all were top notch level up there with some of the over hyped and overly expensive places out there. Value and quality go a long way in this city.

    I wanted to like this place but ultimately could not. It was so noisy we were shouting at each other and still could not be heard. We waited 35 minutes for a reservation when we had arrived promptly. We were a party of 5 and were squished into a 4 top. Our food came well before our cocktails and two of the five orders were wrong or missing side dishes. The waiter kept pouring sparkling water (read - pushing) and was in such a hurry, he consistently spilled all over the table making it a wet mess. This could be a great spot but just doesn't have the operational chops. Really needs tightening up. That said, the cheeseburger was exceptionally good and the one redeeming thing about the experience.

    Made a reservation after walking by the day before. We arrived a few minutes before our reservation time, but were seated immediately. Service started out good, but a large (12+) group seemed to require all of the servers' attention. My eggs benedict was underseasoned and there was no salt or pepper on the table. Had someone come by to refill the water glasses, I would have asked for some.

    perfection on 8th street. great service, food creative and well executed. Odd couple was perfect -eclectic and refined, happy the server recommended this dish. Petit filet wasn't petit at all -rather large cut of mouth watering beef tenderloin with horseradish potatoes -to die for! doughnuts for dessert are a must (better then cafe dumont)! thank you Carmine Di Giovanni and team for providing a wonderful meal and neighborhood gem. We'll be back soon.

    I really enjoyed brunch @ Greenwich Project. I was surprised it wasn't as busy, but the food and service was superb. I would definitely go there sometime soon! They had a great brunch special for $25 bucks, which included coffee or tea, brunch cocktail, entree and a pastry. My friend had a nut allergy and our server ensured the kitchen could accommodate her dietary restriction even if there was no option on the menu for her.

    Read the menu on Open Table and it sounded very interesting. It did not disappoint. We went for brunch. The food was excellent and the variety and selection of creative concoctions made it a tough choice to decide. All was as good as it looked. It's a bit "trendy" for my personal taste, but on the other hand, the service was very warm and friendly --and did not match the décor (that is a positive statement!!). I will go back next time I am in the neighborhood

    I was looking for a late Friday night dinner for a ladies night out. It was a group of 5 but we wanted the place to feel cozy, not stuffy. When we walked into the restaurant, it was very loud on the first floor. Thankfully, the second floor was quiet and intimate. The appetizers were solid - burratta that was crumbly and not creamy, but still good, and a nice tuna tartare. My friend and I ordered the pork chops and were extremely excited to experience a heritage cut on the bone. It was so dry we could barely cut through it. Disappointed! The waitress was so nice and brought out additional desserts for our troubles. There are so many other great restaurants, I probably won't be back.

    The restaurant is beautiful, every inch is thought-out and perfect. There's a classy, comfortable feel about the place, perfectly complimented by the professional and attentive staff. We arrived a little early to allow for cocktails at the bar. Our bartender was knowledgeable and made some excellent recommendations based on what we told him we like. We dined upstairs in the totally unique and gorgeous dining room. Sleek camel leather booths accented with metal rivets, comfortable while giving the dining room a stunning modern vibe. The artwork is funky in a fabulous way; bright colors, various textures and different genres. The food was outstanding! Every bite was exquisite in presentation, flavor and finish. Truly a great restaurant.

    Cocktails were delicious. I had a raspberry Kool-aid drink and my friend had an east of Eden. Appetizer- tuna tartare: surprisingly large portion. Good to share. Bread was amazing also. For dinner I had the fideo with prawns which was great. Could have done without the head of the prawns but it's fine. Friend had the cavatelli which was good. We ended out meal with donuts for desert which were really great. The staff there is also nice and polite and informative which added to a very positive experience.

  • The Perfect Neighborhood Brunch

    Dined on 7/27/2014
    We frequently dine at Greenwich for brunch because it's the perfect brunch! The staff is so welcoming, the coffee is delicious, and the food is exactly what you're craving on a weekend morning. I had the cornflake-crusted French toast, which is OUTRAGEOUS- the fresh berries atop the cornflake crust and the soft brioche inside is such an amazing combination. Other items at the table included the pork belly hash; the perfect egg dish for the sophisticated breakfast palate. The lemon ricotta pancakes, easily the BEST pancakes in NYC. We had an amazing time! Brunch at Greenwich is just one more reason to look forward to the weekend.

    We dined at Greenwich for my mother-in-law's birthday on Saturday night and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were a larger party, and our captain Joe did such a fabulous job taking care of all of our needs; we felt special and comfortable. Some of the dishes at the table included wonderfully fresh tuna tartar, scrumptious oysters, perfectly dressed barata salad, fabulously decedent odd couple, bright and dynamic asparagus salad, mouth watering lamb, perfectly-cooked filet and not to mention the array of desserts, one more delicious than the next. We were completely thrilled, and can't wait to go back! Thank you, Greenwich Project, for making this special occasion so special.
