New Kid on the Block
Omar's is new: the location has seen many restaurants over the years; I hope Omar's does better than the previous tenants The night we went, it was empty, completely empty. The chef prepared a "tasting menu" for us, which was delicious. But it was eerie, being in an empty restaurant. The staff was friendly--perhaps overfriendly, since they had nothing to do--and helpful. We would definitely go back.

Omar's is a wonderful addition to the Village. The space is intimate yet energetic, with a flavorful menu and attentive service. A great spot for a date, double-date or a night out with a friend. I will definitely be going back!

This was our first visit and we were pleasantly surprised. Especially outstanding was the corn soup with lobster and the pork entree was unbelievable. The service was perfect. I would highly recommend

This place exceeded my expectations at every level (food and service). I am surprised it wasnt more crowded.

We had an important client in town so called ahead and we were very well taken care of.
It's a great spot to take someone from Europe for the quintessential glam great NY restaurant..

Treated like old friends...
The entire staff, including Omar, made us feel welcomed and wanted even though we were from out of town. Bartenders really know their stuff and made our first night there absolutely fantastic. When we came back for dinner we were greeted by name and the food was outstanding.

a bit tight in seating, but the room was nice
the food was excellent, but portions were small
the wine list was decent, but very expensive
the wait staff was very attentive
not sure I would go back, but certainly worth trying

Great, after a rocky start
I made a reservation and later was sent an email that asked me to re-confirm my reservation (which I did). We arrived at the restaurant on time, and proceeded to wait 45 minutes to be seated. We were having a great time at the bar (very crowded) but when we finally got seated at 10 pm, 5 of us (relatively big men) were crammed at a table for 4. The staff could not have been more apologetic (even though no attempt was made to get us a bigger table). Fortunately, the night got better from there. we received complimentary hors d'oeuvres, our waiter was funny and knowledgeable and the food was delicious. Loved the atmosphere. So, despite the rocky start, we had a great experience and will definitely return.

Wonderful and warm
Omar's staff was warm, inviting, attentive. The food was well prepared and presented, flavorful without trying too hard. My family and I went to Omar's for the first time, for the Thanksgiving dinner they offered and we will return many times in the future.
