    Surprisingly good food and interesting menu for such a small space. Pleasant and efficient staff. Nice music selection. With Irving Plaza next door a lively atmosphere is expected, but really, you can't speak to the person next to you without shouting and rush to leave. It's busy, so perhaps the owners think it's a draw, but the kitchen's hard work goes to waste.

    Sampled their Squash dumpling at Taste of Gramercy event on Saturday. Decided to try their brunch on Sunday. Chilaquiles & Frittata entrees were acceptable but nothing special. Very noisy.

    My friends and I had a really wonderful time at Ichabod's for brunch last Saturday. Everyone there was super friendly and attentive (even with my group that was slowly trickling in over the course of 30 minutes) - I was very impressed with the food and the service.

    I was pleasantly amazed with this restaurant! I could not stop talking about my outstanding dining experience, from the skillfully crafted cocktails, to the well-thought out and balanced burrata dish, and of course who could forget that amazing ice cream sundae! Truly, a unique find putting out some good food. I'LL BE BACK!

    There just isn't enough room for two humans to eat all the yummy food here! I wanted to order more but I got full. Kale Ceaser: delish. Squash dumplings: sweet and savory goodness. Burratta: made me close my eyes... I also took forever to eat it because I didn't want it to be gone. Sundae: simple ingredients paired well.. It's too bad my face didn't fit in mason Jar to lick the rest of the caramel. I'll be back with a hungrier tummy next time.

    The flatbread was savory and wonderful. The lettuce plate (salad) was underwhelming. The mussels- were poor/ great sauce but the quality of the mussels was concerning. The fried oyster dish was great. Overall- overpriced dishes, but great decor and ambiance.

    They do things right here and consistently so. Simple, streamlined menu belies depth of flavor and high level technique. Great plating combinations hit the mark without being overly fancy or contrived. Menu highlights: fried oyseter wraps, squash dumplings, chicken (A+), skirt steak, cavatelli and powerful burger. Very strong cocktail program try a sazerac, manhattan or something with mezcal. Also thoughtfully edited wine list that doesn't read like Moby Dick. And don't skip dessert - the sundae is crack.

    Go here with an appetite. The dumplings in particular are exquisite, I would go back just for bowls of these, but the Burrata salad and the Mussels (broth) were just as delicious. Everything was so fresh, flavorful and moreish we just wanted to try the entire menu. We shared 5 smaller dishes including the kale Caesar and asparagus side which satisfied 2 hungry people. The presentation and attention to each dish just enhances the taste. The excellent service and unique ambience tipped this review to 5 stars. We were so impressed we went back for brunch and happily the food and service was just as good. Pricey, but worth it.

    I can not believe this restaurant is still popular yet. Still easy to have a reservation. I strongly recommend if you look for new American style restaurant around Union Square and East village, go to Ichabod's. Do not spend money a lot at fancy good interior restaurants.

    As out of town visitors, we were looking for a pre-theater supper before a play at the Vineyard theater across the street. Though we're many decades older than the hip clientele who now seem to enjoy Ichabods, we were welcomed warmly and enjoyed an interesting and delicious meal. And the noise level was reasonable.

    We wanted a quick burger and drink. The cocktails were very good, the burger terrific. The prices are a bit on the high side, but the staff are very well trained, attentive without being too much and very nice, so worth it. It is a bit loud, but everyone was happy - who can complain!

    It is your typical bar scene of Union Square. I do not think their drinks are worth 14 bucks and burger was not good enough to be a 19 dollar menu item. Fries were over salted.

    I think I am a regular for this restaurant. however since waitresses who I knew left, I am not a regular at all. new waitresses are always chatting at the counter table. the restaurant lost good communications. that makes me sad… the waiters try to get my dishes despite there are foods still on the plates. I do not why they ask me to take the plats away. look at the plates !!!!

    The food was delicious. My daughter had recommended the kale flower salad, squash dumplings, and the roasted brussel sprouts, with bacon and mustard sauce. They did not disappoint! Three of us shared the sundae and it was sinfully good. However, the music was as LOUD as in a dance club and we really had to struggle to have a conversation. It made what would have otherwise been a fine dinner incredibly uncomfortable.

    We ate here on Saturday, as a group of 4. We have dined here before and always enjoy the squash dumplings, kale salad and oysters. I was especially impressed this weekend, when we had ordered a bottle of wine that was way too sweet for our table. Our server recognized our disappointment, and without charge, replaced the wine with one more to our taste despite the fact that half of the previous bottle had already been poured. We were surprised to see the level of service and Ichabod's desire to make their customers happy. We will certainly be back.

    Have walked past Ichabod's many times and decided to give it a shot. Squash dumplings, chicken pate w/ strawberry jam, burrata and brussels to start with the pork belly as my main course. Delicious. Finished it off with the only desert on the menu, their sundae, and was delighted. Great food, great drinks, will come back soon!

    The cocktail menu had some unique twists on classics such as their Spiced Old Fashioned which was quite good. The lighting was pretty dark, but added to the overall ambiance of the place. The noise level was moderate which makes the place better perhaps for small groups rather than a quiet/romantic dinner out. The food quality was consistent with their pricing. My wife went for their pork belly, while I went for one of their specials, which they called a Pork Roll--it was essentially pork belly rolled around some micro-greens, cooked, sliced, and then quickly pan-fried off. Our friend ordered the half-chicken. We were all pleased with our orders. Our server was prompt and helpful and made recommendations based on house favorites.

    Food and drinks were really good. I got the pork belly, and I thought it was perfectly cooked and delicious. It is reasonably priced for Manhattan; although coming from Brooklyn - I thought prices were a little high. I will definitely be back, but probably during happy hour.
