- OpenTable Diner Since 2005Dined on 9/16/2014Heard about the restaurant and cuisine on NPR. The food seems very authentic and beautifully prepared.

- alexVIPDined on 8/8/2014Excellent food. One of the best, if not the best, middle eastern food in townSpecial Features:
- Delicious authentic Georgian foodEbeeDined on 8/8/2014At last, authentic cuisine from the Republic of Georgia in Manhattan. Good wine selection and very good cheese bread (hatchapuri), which is hard to find outside Brooklyn. The slow-cooked eggplant lunch dish is delicious, with complex, savory notes.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Georgian Find!JFJrVIPDined on 8/6/2014Not only Does Oda serve very tasty, interesting Georgian food, but the staff is very friendly and eager to talk about the food and their homeland. We enjoyed a terrific lunch of a cold vegetable dish and one of the Georgian cheese breads stuffed with two cheeses and an egg...more than enough for two hearty eaters!Special Features:
- amazing bread - adjaruliWinnieNYCDined on 8/3/2014I am not a big fan of bread, but the adjaruli is really tasty. Although it sounds a bit pricey for a piece of bread with butter, egg and cheese, but it definitely deserves a try. Everything there is made to order. Great place for a few friends to enjoy a long brunch on Sunday!!Special Features:
- Great Georgian food !DineloverDined on 8/1/2014The food is great especially the bread with the butter and egg. Wish that the place wasn't that noisy. Overall, it's a great Georgian food place to dine !Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/12/2014For my first Georgian food experience the food and the staff were all incredible. My friend had just came back to the US from being in Georgia for 2 years and she made a point to say how authentic the food was and how friendly everyone was also! We will definitely be back! And HIGHLY recommend.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Our Favorite!KrisDined on 7/11/2014I've said it many times about Oda - it is a fantastic place for those who love Georgian food and for those who have yet to try it.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Will go backNYCseniorDined on 7/11/2014It was the first time I ever had Georgian food. Everything my friend and I ordered was delicious. We especially like the salmon entrée. I look forward to going back and trying some other new food experiences.Special Features:
- Outstanding Georgian FoodJacqui999Dined on 7/5/2014Hidden Gem of the East Village. Authentic Georgian food can shape any foodies experiences, if you have not tried the Georgian kitchen, than this place is a must go. Great for vegetarians as well as for meat lovers. Dont forget a bottle of wine with your food.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- ExcellentabruzzoDined on 7/5/2014I ate here for lunch... and had the Imeruli Khachapuri and the Ajabsandali. I had had Khacapuri when I lived in Russia 20 years ago at a great Georgian restaurant so I was searching for a Georgian restaurant in New York. After some internet searches I came across Oda House. Both dishes were delicious and I will come back soon for dinner..The Saperm wine was also excellent. Dessert was the orange cake which was again excellent. The food is very unique and original. I would highly recommend.Special Features:
- Flavorful and abundantGeorgiaMonAmourDined on 7/4/2014Next time I go to Oda House (and I will!), I will stay with appetizers. There is a long list of them to choose from and they are unique, fresh and filling. Don't forget to order a khachapuri, cheese-filled bread, freshly baked and coming to your table piping hot. (It is also good to know that all cheeses are made on premises.) The chief Maia makes in-house whatever possible, the rest of the ingredients (veggies and meat) are locally farmed. Our entrees on a recent dinner were plain unnecessary, we were full on four appetizers that we shared. If you are too hungry to forego a main course, try chakapuli (lamb stewed in tarragon, mint and other herbs), or chanakhi (lamb baked in a clay pot with eggplants, tomatoes and other vegetable).Special Features:
- AmazingDowntownFoodiesDined on 7/3/2014I was there with a friend ins it's authentic Georgian food. Highly recommended go check the spot!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good georgianOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 6/29/2014Authentic selection of georgian food and wine near LESSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Hidden gemOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 6/23/2014This is a most wonderful place with fantastic chef, even according to the connoisseurs of Georgian food, excellent Georgian wines, very knowledgeable, attentive, and friendly waiters, and a charming ambiance. I would highly recommend it for a wide array of occasions.Special Features:
- Great intro to Georgian FooddridrVIPDined on 6/21/2014Enjoyed dinner here as a party of 6. Table was waiting for us when we arrived a few minutes early. No one rushed us through the meal - quite the opposite - we were made to feel welcome and unhurried. Were not familiar with the Georgian wines and were offered samples of different wine types prior to purchasing bottle. The reds are great. Enjoyed several appetizers- the various breads and tomato salad were great. The appetizers are a little pricey, but the portions are large. For mains had various offerings. Portions were well sized. The Oda special liver was excellent. The meat in the kebabs were a little too well done for our taste. No one ever offered us coffee or desert. This is a great restaurant to explore and enjoy.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Must-GoedeatsDined on 6/21/2014Go for the adjaruli and dumplings (they even offer a veg option, which is nice). If you want a main, though, go for one app at most, since they're quite filling. Next time I go I'll probably split three appetizers with whomever I'm dining with and try a dessert, which we were too stuffed to try!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Authentic Georgian MealKK24Dined on 6/8/2014Having just returned from the republic of Georgia, I can verify that the food was authentic and delicious!Special Features:
- A must visit for all foodiesifoodieDined on 6/7/2014Each and every dish is amazing. Hachapuri (adjaruli) was perfect: the crispy dough boat with cheese and egg were done just right! This is a must if you dine there. Also try the trio and Georgian salad. We chatted with the owner and he explained the origins of the dishes and the difference between the food from eastern and western parts of Georgia. Great experience overall.Special Features:
- The following 54 reviews are from the Oda House reviews archive.
- A rare treatgaflick57VIPDined on 5/27/2014Interesting exposure for me to a previously unknown, "crossroads" cuisine. I especially enjoyed Imeruli (a soft flatbread with cheese filling) and mushroom salad with mint garnished with pomegranate seeds. Their Georgian sparkling wine (Bagrationi) also was a refreshing aperitif similar to prosecco. The food is healthful and tasty, the dining room nicely decorated, and the staff very friendly. The portions are ample, so it would be best to go with a group.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good KhachapuriveggiefoodieDined on 5/23/2014Georgian food is not that common in Manhattan. This place has good Khachapuri. The bread is good. The dumplings are interesting. The veggie options are not that enticing. The staff are nice. The presentation is nice. The main dishes are ok. Not like in Tbilisi.Special Features:
- Haven't been there, done that!AnonymousDined on 5/9/2014A unique cuisine, fresh, high quality ingredients and a warm an welcoming staff make dining at Oda a wonderful experience. It's an extra pleasure to introduce "been-there done-that" New Yorkers to a place they've never been and something they've never tasted before.Special Features:
- Great find!m0zart1790Dined on 5/9/2014Oda House is an amazing gem, serving authentic Georgian fare and terrific wine. I went with a group of 4 people and we order a variety of entrees, appetizers, and sides just to try them. Overall, a great experience and an affordable and fun option for dinner.Special Features:
- I liked itIsaacBrowerDined on 5/7/2014Oda house was good and nice, and that is why I liked it.Special Features:
- Great all around.wangusangusDined on 5/1/2014Service was excellent, food was great, wine was great.. It's nice to have a good, affordable Georgian option in Manhattan. Will definitely be back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fabulous and uniqueinternationalistDined on 4/25/2014I seek out restaurants with unusual cuisines (this one, Georgian), but even if you're not interested in unusual food, this is a great place to visit. Lots of choice and so, something for everyone. I'd suggest getting a number of appetizers and breads to take advantage of the variety. I loved the chvishtari (cheese stuffed cornbread). I chose that instead of their signature Adjaruli bread, but everyone around me who ordered the Adjaruli was wiping their plates absolutely clean. I also really enjoyed the Pkhali Trio, which are vegetables, nuts and spices ground into a spread-like texture. Usually eaten straight, some people might like them with an order of the plain yeast bread so they can be eaten as spreads.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Delicious Georgian FoodJulieDined on 4/23/2014We loved the megruli khachapuri and the pkhali. Mains were great, but apps really hit the spot.Special Features:
- Too loud!LocavoreVIPDined on 4/19/2014Food was great and service very helpful for ordering for a group, but we could not talk because of the screaming guests!
- Wonderful food! Wonderful place!MimiDined on 4/11/2014Even if you don't know much about Georgian cuisine, you'll enjoy every moment at Oda House. The service was excellent, though a bit overwhelmed by all the customers at times. They patiently answered all our questions and helped us figure out what EXCELLENT food to try next. Their wine list was a treat for those of use who don't have much experience with Georgian wines and their Khachpuri (cheese bread) was so tasty, we ordered an extra pie to take home.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Georgian GemJimmyVDined on 4/9/2014You know it's a good place when a friend of mine (a native georgian) says it's good. I happen to enjoy georgian wines very much and they have a great selection. The staff was very attentive to our needs. The breads are unique very fresh and served hot. The food is authentic and delicious. Will definetly go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Georgia on My MindGamarjobaDined on 4/8/2014Came here expecting a great meal - I had met Chef Maia at the Village Voice "Choice Eats" food show several weeks previous and tried many of their dishes, all of which were exquisite. I also know a lot about Georgian cuisine, so I suppose I'm both biased and qualified to say Oda House is a great place for a great meal. Their wine list includes mostly mid-range Georgian wines, but I highly recommend the Pheasant's Tears Mtsvane, a 2011 white made in traditional kvevri. Our table of four shared several appetizers, including the adjaruli khachapuri (amazing), the phkali trio with bread (delicious), and an order of lamb khinkali and mushroom khinkali (good, but slightly dry with no juice inside). Chicken kababs and lobio were also good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- this is one of my favoritesgretchenVIPDined on 4/6/2014this is one of my favorites in nyc .... way off beaten path, & vaut le voyage!Special Features:
- Unique, Delicious, & CharmingMariaDined on 3/19/2014I've dined at Oda House twice, and both experiences were wonderful. The Georgian cuisine is hearty, unique, and flavorful, with many spices that are unconventional to the typical American or Western palate. My favorite dishes are the khachapuri and imeruli (both breads with cheese), lamb dumplings, and beef stew. Oda House is decorated in golds and oranges with dark, rich furniture, giving it a warm atmosphere. The service is also very good, and the staff is helpful and quick to give information about the dishes. The atmosphere and fare at Oda House are best savored and enjoyed over a long dinner.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- I don't recall eating bettergretchenVIPDined on 3/16/2014I don't recall eating better in Georgia, itself...... & staff is wonderful, as well, as is the whole experience. Vaut le voyage.... & lots closer than the CaucasesSpecial Features:
- Fantastic place!KrisDined on 3/15/2014I most likely will become a regular of Oda House! This place is fantastic. So glad it opened and now Manhattan has authentic Georgian food!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
