A word from Onieals
Pull up a seat in the lounge or join us for lunch, dinner or weekend brunch in the dining room. Onieals offers casually elegant cuisine and unique cocktails to satisfy a variety of tastes and preferences. The perfect meeting place for business lunches, after work drinks or fun on the weekend.
>Set in a neighborhood that for more than a hundred years was the knife’s edge of wealth, corruption, poverty and crime, Onieals today is a refined, hip restaurant but one with a history.

Onieals is well known for "Sex and the City." When Miranda's once and future boy-toy Steve partners up with Carrie’s ex Aidan to open the bar ‘SCOUT’, it is Onieals Grand Street in downtown NYC that serves as the backdrop for the casually hip New York bar.

Diner Reviews
  • "Had a great dinner. Short Ribs were outstanding, staff friendly and attentive!!"

  • "We had a very pleasant mother's day brunch here. The food was good. So was the service and the place has a pleasant decor. I'm not sure if I would go out of the way to go there, but if I'm in the area, I would definitely consider going back to try out some of the non-brunch menu. "

  • "The food was good , waited too much time also if the room was empty. I've had to go and call the waiter to have coffe served and for the check because he was speaking from too muche time with the other guys in the room . The Idea was to lower down the TIP but it was in the bill !!!"

  • "I checked out O'Nieals recently and definitely enjoyed the experience, though I was expecting more of a restaurant than a bar with food. The pasta vodka and Caesar salad were both tasty, and the martinis were excellent. I think there was an organized bar crawl stopping in. Many people just camping out, having a quick "pink" drink."

  • "Has to book something for my fiancées birthday and found this place to be reasonable and something he would like. The baked chicken was a little dry but the asparagus risotto and baked brussel sprouts (sides) Were awesome! I'd recommendb"

  • "Came here with a group for my birthday, never having been before, and was pleasantly surprised! Beautiful, really cool ambiance. The staff was wonderful, friendly and very accommodating- we had a couple of last minute additions and they were helpful and really nice about it. The food was delicious and there's a wide enough selection that everyone was happy. Overall it was a wonderful experience and I'm so happy we ended up here, I would definitely go back if I'm in the area again! Highly recommended!"

  • "Oniels was definitely a very very positive surprise. I was not expecting such delicious food. I went with 3 friends and we all had different entrees - all looked and tasted amazing. The cocktails were also very special and the team very friendly."

  • "Great food and ambience. Come Wednesday nights when they have dollar oysters. Friday and Saturday nights are usually crowded"

  • "Our family of 6 met for brunch here and everything was great. The food was excellent and the service was excellent as well. Very relaxing. A great spot!"

  • "Reviews made it sound worth trying out so I did. I realized when I arrived I had been maybe a couple of years earlier for drinks. The place was almost empty on a Saturday night. It could have been it was a snow day or that my reservation was for 7pm. There was only one other table dining. We were only 2 and the corner banquet where I wanted to sit was a 5 top. But the hostess graciously sat us there. I had the steak au poivre, which was standard but delicious. My date had the salmon and loved it. I would go again and would recommend this place without reservation, not as a stand out for someone who might be a foodie snob, but as an all around strong choice for good food, specialty drinks, and nice service."

  • "First time there. The food was great, the service friendly and attentive, and it was very energetic at the bar. My wife and I both enjoyed the experience."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "The food is consistently very good. However, while the service in the past was good, the service on our last visit was very slow, and the speed of the kitchen was even slower."

  • "I love the ambiance in this place. It has been here forever and is still interesting. The food is good and the drinks were very good."

  • "We were visiting our daughter in NYC and had Sunday brunch at Onieals. It was relatively quiet so we could talk easily, which made it a very enjoyable meal. The food was very good and the restaurant has a nice, comfortable décor. There was only one waiter for the restaurant, though, so the service was a little slow. We would definitely go back there!"
    Dined on 10/6/2013
  • "Hip crowd, great food and décor makes this place worth coming downtown for and if you live downtown there's no reason to go uptown. Wednesdays is $1.00 oyster nights."

  • "Onieal's is one of my young son's favorite restaurants, and we have gone well out of our way on numerous occasions to dine at this usually Little Italy establishment. This past Friday night we had an abysmal experience, with poorly timed delivery of appetizers and entrees, a forgotten wine order -- the bottle wasn't delivered until the meal was well underway -- and generally inattentive service. We hope that this was an anomalous experience and plan to try he place again later in the summer."

  • "I went to Onieals with a group of colleagues while in town for a business trip (a recommendation from someone else in the office) and was impressed with the ambiance and decor, as well as the extensive cocktail menu. That being said, we received poor service, at best. Two of us ordered the steak special, and one got the regular steak from the menu, and not one of the orders was correct when it came to the table. The server who delivered our food did not take the order, so we just took the food and traded where necessary. At the end of it all, we were charged an automatic 20% gratuity for our group size, and given some serious attitude from our server when we asked for change. The food was good, but not worth the ordeal."

  • "I took my partner for Valentines Day after looking everywhere. It was nice but, a little pricey. However the Hammered Chicken was great. I only ordered that and I was full the entire night. The wine was great. We had a nice time but, the waitress seemed like she was everywhere. She was a little... obnoxious to be honest."

  • "This place is everything you could want on an afternoon. Great choice of beers, good food, and fantastic service. Go here, and then tell others to do the same!!"

  • "O'nieals came highly recommended from a few friends. We ate a late lunch here the day the Blizzard hit NYC. There were only a few other diners in the restaurant; until the SITC bus rolled in. After their quick Cosmo, the 20 women left. I have to say - it was pretty entertaining. The food was very good and the drinks hit the spot. We'll definitely be back on our next trip to NYC."
    Dined on 2/8/2013
  • "A great find! Delicious food. Noisy bar - which made for a noisy restaurant since it's not that big. But we got used to the sound level because after a while, we weren't so conscious of the noise."
    Dined on 12/19/2012
  • "It was a surreal moment when the Sex and the City tour group arrived, but the waiter, Chaz (I think) was just lovely and we'll definitely go back again for lunch soon!"
    Dined on 12/18/2012
  • "Food was good , but service was very slow . Never check to see if we need more drinks etc .... Would not go back"
    Dined on 12/15/2012
  • "We really enjoyed this restaurant. There is something for everyone on the menu and the food was good, the portion sizes reasonable. The service was friendly and attentive. The restaurant becomes more of a 20-30s hangout at around 10 PM so we were displaced by people encroaching on our table but other than that we had a nice time."

  • "sunday brunch is usually quiet and slow...great food though."
    Dined on 7/22/2012
  • "Great for Sunday brunch. Lots of choices. Great street scene and people watching!"
    Dined on 5/13/2012
  • "Amazing staff and lots of great items on the menu. Even though we went twice, I would go again to try new items. First night, the server accommodated 12 of us that walked in at 9pm - no sweat! The next night we made reservations and had an excellent time."
    Dined on 3/27/2012
  • "The food was excellent at Onieals and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. the reason I could only give the service two stars is because the manager a blonde woman in her mid thirties was extremely rude and exhibited some of the most bizarre behavior I've ever seen in a restaurant. I don't know what was wrong with her but first off she lit a her cigarette inside from the candle on our table. then approached us 3 times during the meal asking if she could take one of our 2 tables away to make room for bar patrons. while we were eating. then when our waiter tried to give us water she loudly said i want them out of here stop bringing them water. We had a 930 reservation and occupied the table for a little over an hour."

  • "I love this place. I have been so many times and had the bar food and brunch which has always been great. This time we went for dinner, which was not as good but still ok. This place has a great atmosphere and the staff are really friendly too."
    Dined on 2/6/2012
  • "I read previews reviews and I decided to eat here, and I must say it was a terrible mistake. Although the prices are not so bad, the quality of food and drinks are not worth what you're paying for. The food is extremely salty and it feels like it just came out from the microwave."

  • "Good food in a bar like atmoshphere. A little tight in the dining room."

  • "My wife and I happened into Onieals by accident about 3 years ago and fell in love the first time in. We went back a 2nd time about 2 months later and the same server had our table and she not only remembered us, she remembered our names and where we were from. We live on Long Island and continue to make O'nieals a regular stop whenever we're in the city. The staff, food and atmosphere all help to make this one of our favorite places in the city to visit."

  • "a little disappointing, the brunch was not at the expected level. On top quite empty except for a while when a lot of girls of the Sex and the City Tour came in to enjoy a cosmopolitan. However they have a terrace which can be a plus to lunch outside when the weather is wamer."
