    The seafood risotto was truly excellent. It had a creamy sauce and lots of seafood including large scallops. The half chicken was juicy and served with fresh swiss chard. I recommend this restaurant.

    We had a reservation for a large party, including my 95 year old grandmother. All other issues aside, when our entrees came out, my grandmother's dish was not among them. We had to ask the waiter where her dish was, and we got a very hand-wavy "the kitchen is backed up" excuse before he disappeared. 15 minutes later, her dish had not arrived. We finally managed to get a hold of our waiter who said something like, "I'm sure it'll be out in a couple of minutes". When 9 out of 10 dishes show up to a table at a restaurant, I believe it's incumbent upon the waiter to a) immediately apologize and tell the table you're working on it and b) actually do something about it, like go into the kitchen. Our waiter did neither.

    This place is great for brunch, lunch and dinner. The menu has choices for everyone's tastes. Especially good are tasty lamb burger and mezze plate. Sweet service, always a smile greets you. Very kid-friendly. The outdoor seating is ample, on a leafy corner of Third Ave and 17th Street. Love it.

    We know it's great for outdoors and vibrant, but we like it for the off-hours when it's romantic & quieter for just the two of us or small gatherings with family & friends, when we can hear each other while having a great meal. We've enjoyed all the specials (beef, seafood, foul) and most menu options on Birthdays, Anniversaries, New Year's Eves, Thanksgivings and just dropping in to relax. And the best is in addition to the great food, the management and wait staff always treat you like family.

    My friends and I returned for Sunday brunch a second time this year (in fact, they never stopped talking about the first visit!) The menu is varied enough to allow many food choices. I tried the mac and cheese with double smoked bacon. It was outstanding. Mumbles' staff is friendly, without being intrusive and the service is quite good. The restaurant is comfortable and attractive. Even the bathrooms are well planned -- and clean. Once again, we all enjoyed the chance to share a good brunch and talk. (No complaints.) We'll be back.

    Although it has been here a long time...Mumbles menu has been greatly improved in its variety! I still go for their lobster special dinner on Mondays...still a good value and fresh! They have different special 'deals' each day--worth stopping by. Only complaint is the appetizers have gone WAY UP in price....couldn't find one below $10. While I was there, they effortlessly served a large group---maybe 30 folks! Our waitress was wonderful... friendly and very attentive too!

    This was my second time here. Had brunch which was very good but was disappointed this time. It may have been that two of us picked an entree we did not like. The zucchini spaghetti was the winner! Crab cake was something I could have purchased in the store and heated myself.

    Went here because of the reviews and needed an american bistro for a mixed group. the appetizers were decent enough, but all 4 entrees were inedible. Both overcooked and undercooked pastas, a terrible veggie burger and a flavorless steak. Not at all impressed. will not return.

    We love New York, and we especially love exploring the neighborhoods of New York. The lower Eastside, we have found to be friendly, vibrant and color full. Mumbles is the place to go if you want to experience the mood of this neighborhood, a casual comfortable atmosphere, and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious, with plenty of originality.

    It looks like a typical cozy bar, but go for the food. They have an interesting menu, and everything we had was carefully prepared from quality ingredients. The only disappointment was pumpkin pie for dessert: a delicious flavor, but thin and served refrigerator-cold (they warmed it for us). The staff is efficient and extremely accommodating.

    This a great little neighborhood restaurant and bar! The food and service are superb, and the prices are extremely reasonable. The Veggie Burger is the best I've ever had! I've eaten at the bar and at a table with a large group. In both situations, the service was excellent. They have a nice selection of craft beer and great happy hour specials on wine, beer, and cocktails. It's a cozy little place to relax and enjoy a great meal served with a smile!

    There is a new chef as of a week ago and a new menu as of May 1st 2013- very disappointing- one fish entree- and a total of 5 entrees - mostly burgers, a few salads and mostly burgers which also now come with nothing and the price was increased- overall there is nothing for me to eat here any more,. The entire dining room was fussing over the new menu and everyone agreed- bring back the old menu or at least some of them-. Dave- why did you do this? What are you thinking? Whatever ever happened to eating healthy and a yummy protein and veggie for dinner? great for a late night stop in - not for the neighborhood locals anymore..I wish he would have kept his great old menu and just given us all a price increase. Very disappointing! VERY!

    The quality of the food seems inconsistent from week to week. They completely changed the menu and raised the prix fix special by $3. A week earlier I had a lovely meal with friends. This last time the fresh pasta was good but the sauce and meatballs were not as good. Also I had to send back the seafood ravioli since it was loaded with pepper. They graciously prepared another one for me from scratch which was not spicy.

    This place stays in business because of regulars that have gone there forever. I counted only 4 other people under age 65. The garden salad was fresh, the Sesame Crusted Tuna was cooked properly but the Wasabi Soy sauce was strange. My Japanese friend was taken aback when they brought it to the table. The Wasabi was in the Soy sauce and neither were very good. The Crab Cakes were very good and the Sirloin was good. My steak came with hand cut potatoes that ranged from being overcooked to not cooked enough. Service was mediocre. It took 10 mins after being seated for a waitress (longer for the basket of bread), she never introduced herself and didn't ask if we had any questions. Didn't like the 18% tip being included in the bill.

We used a deal that gave us ~$70 worth of food for $32, which meant that we had a three-course meal, and the staff were very patient with us and brought everything out/cleaned up in a reasonably timely manner.

    I love flavor and service and they were great at both. The prices were great and you get a discount for paying cash. I had risotto and it was delicious. I also left a bag there and they found it and saved it for me. I'll be back soon cause they have creme brulee and I was to full. The great thing is that the chef knew it wouldn't travel well. So I'll be back and I bought a group on for it.

    The food is really good and the prices are very affordable- they just need to step up to the service ratings. We are a regular here and leave 20+ tip but the service is always an issue. You have to ask for water- you have to ask for additional glass of wine- you even have to remind them that you do not have silverware AFTER your food arrives and if you want more bread........you will be waiting. But nice people here and the food is more than decent.
