A great value.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMdinner & a showPlace is narrow, staff very nice and attentive, food was good, came quickly. Good prices. Will definately go back. Make sure you have a reservation, place gets packed.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHourglassThis restaurant is on New York's Restaurant Row in the Theatre District--a single block with so many diverse eateries that you'd swear you were in Epcot. That said, it was a pleasant little place to catch up with friends. Being on Restaurant Row, I'm sure it caters to the rushed pre-theatre dinner crowd. We weren't seeing a play so we dined in an unhurried manner. In other words, there was no pressure on us to vacate the table. That in itself is worth the price of admission. The staff was great and very friendly and attentive. Food was very good; tried the shrimp fra diavolo, chicken alfredo (best of the three) and pork chop. All were well prepared and tasty although the pork chop was a bit on the small size. All in all, I would go back.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHome made tastesGood grilled entreés with home cooking feel. The apple-blueberry cobbler was delicious and reminded us of something our own mothers would have made. The prixe fixed dinner was a reasonable meal for the theater district. Very tight quarters and we marveled at the wait staff running up and down the stairs with food!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great FindI loved the cozy atmosphere of this restaurant. A great spot for before theatre as the service was well-timed and friendly. Affordable wine list. The grilled pork chop was delicious and the fruit cobler for desert was outstanding!! I will definitely return to try other dishes!!!!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways A Great ChoiceAlways love going to Hourglass Tavern. We were 8 women who were served beautifully by Maria. Not easy to serve 8 of us. Maria is friendly and worked very hard to make sure we were all happy. And we were! Food is always delicious whether it is homemade ravioli, pasta, fish, or chicken. And the bread is too good! We look forward to our next time.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHad the prix fixe menu ofHad the prix fixe menu of salad, delicious pork chop and the homemade berry tart for dessert. Quite a good deal and the food was excellent. The bartender/waitress was very friendly, helpful and was attentive too.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNice little spotIf you don't mind tight quarters this is a great place!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were a group of 7 comingWe were a group of 7 coming from the Sex and the City Tour. This restaurant was a super way to finish the night. The service was excellent and the food was delicious and a great value. We ordered off of the preset theater menu. We would definitely be returning!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMCharming!Set in a converted pre-war brownstone, the Hourglass Tavern is a "great little spot" in every sense of the word. The dining area is very small with the kitchen just steps away and in plain view- just one of the attributes that made me so fond of the spot and made for a very NYC experience. There is a bar on the 2nd floor that looked fun too. For locals and tourists alike, I think a great experience is waiting here. My entree was delicious and the server very pleasant to boot!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to eat!Loved this great place, the food was awesome and the service is great. The only issue was the noise level, hard to talk to my wife.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThere were 11 of us womenThere were 11 of us women for dinner after a saturday matinee. All I can say is that the food was delicious and the service fabulous.
Highly recommend4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat prix-fixe pre-theatreGreat prix-fixe pre-theatre dinner. Good service and excellent food. Loved the House Dressing.

Will go back.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect pre or post theatrePerfect pre or post theatre spot. Service is friendly and fast, food is very good and prices reasonable.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect DateMy boyfriend and I went to the Hour Glass Tavern before going to the theatre. It is conveniently located in the heart of Restaurant Row. The atmosphere was romantic surrounded by victorian decor. The place was unique with genuine servers and fast service. Food was great with even better prices. If you are looking for a non-touristy/ hole in the wall type restaurant, I highly recommend the Hour Glass Tavern. I would not recommend for large groups since space is tight but it is absolutely perfect for couples and small families.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMlocated amidst restaurantlocated amidst restaurant row, still very interesting and frequented by locals. A true gem and a beautiful place to enjoy dinner with friends or significant other.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorites in ManhattanJust a great place with great food. Good prix fix menu and near the theaters.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA little restaurant with big flavorIt's a time warp! If you want to experience some quality eat and drink in a pre-WW II French bistro, you'll love this place with warm, courteous service and honest, very tasty real cuisine. It's not a fancy or large establishment. In fact it occupies a tiny 3-story tenement. Nonetheless, the menu and service was excellent and all had a great time at a modest price in this theater-district joint.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWhere to take your mid-sized groupDecent food, lovely building, great experience!
