Great Neighborhood spot
We live in the area and come to Almond often. It has a nice outdoor area that is far enough away from the street that you don't have cars buzzing past you. Consistently good food, and moderate prices.

Really enjoyed brunch on Sunday
Really enjoyed brunch on Sunday - it was a last minute decision to try Almond as we were unable to get into any of the places we wanted, however all four of us stated we would definately be adding Almond to our list of favourite brunch places!

Second visit as good as the first
This was the second time I've been to Almond (was there a few weeks ago for brunch) and once again the food, service and atmosphere were outstanding. Will be back

Fun spot to dine with friends
Almond is a great place in the Flatiron Iron District to meet for dinner, especially if you're spending time with a large group of friends (we particularly like the round table that seats 6 near the front windows). The food is delicious and the staff is very friendly. Worth checking out if you have a chance.

Good food, Waitstaff hard to flag
Been here 2x for wknd brunch. Food is great. Had the duck hash & the classic eggs benedict. mimosa is tasty w/the right amt of OJ tang & fizzy. BUT the waitstaff, doesn't really tend to the table. At one point, I was waving both arms to grab anyone's attn attention, but unless you fit into 3 categories (1. get more water, 2. more biscuits, 3. clear plates), I got no help. I had to literally shout at the next table, "Excuse me...? Excuuuse me. Excuse me! EXCUSE ME" for help. we only got what we asked for 75% through our meal. I was pretty disappointed, not enjoy the meal.

Meet & Greet
we had a nice meet and greet there and were concerned that the noise level would be frustrating for a table of 6 to be able to hear each other (four of the guests were in their 60s). we requested a quieter table and it was granted -- in the back there was plenty of space for us and no issues with the noise!
Oh and the food was delicious with great service :)

This was my first visit to Almond NYC. I have eaten at Almond in Bridgehampton countless times. The food was just as good and the mussels are always delicious. The atmosphere was casual and friendly with outdoor seating where your dog can also enjoy the meal. The bar is inviting and the drinks and wine list are plenty. I love Almond in Bridgehampton because it consistently rewards your appetite. Now I will frequent this Almond when visiting the city.

Our favorite neighborhood
Our favorite neighborhood restaurant! Took out of towers..they loved it!
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
A bit expensive but delicious
I love that they offer a Prixe Fixe menu! The rest of the menu is a little on the expensive side, but everything was delicious. I tried the escargo (for the first time) and it was garlicy and buttery - amazing. The mac n cheese was amazing, as well as the cheeseburger.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The brunch was great. Highly recommend the braised greens omelettes to any vegetarians out there.

Good Eats with Ambiance
Great little neighborhood gem... Very rustic yet euro decor with lovely lighting. Service can certainly be improved- not bad, just not very attentive. Mussels were delicious and I would certainly recommend the steak frites. We also had the truffle ravioli which were tasty and we skipped on dessert.

The best of NY.
Almond is a sublime eating experience. I have brought many friends there who all love it! It' my go-to and now has become that for many of my friends.

Interesting menu, great staff
We originally picked Almost just because it was close to where we needed to be, but it turned out to be a great choice. The menu was quite interesting, all of our meals were excellent, and the staff was terrifically nice and attentive.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always something new on the menu and always reliable.
Are you in need of a lunch in Flatiron district? This should be your first choice.

My guest said the duck breast
My guest said the duck breast was moist and delicious. My steak was perfect.

Had a great dinner. Sort ribs, Pork Chop Milanese, Ravioli. All terrific.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was very good and the staff was friendly. The service was also very good. Overall a great experience.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wow! Great food, nice place!
Had heard the food was good, but not this good - great menu, absolutely perfectly prepared food (and accurately described by the waiter, who knew his stuff), wonderful flavors, clever combinations - absolutely nothing not to like. Great mix of substantial first courses and salads, for the "two appetizers instead of one and an entree' crowd - entrees were right sized (if anything, on the substantial side) - desserts were petit and full flavored. We loved the ambiance, the well-edited wine list, the brussels sprouts and the frites - the short rib/corn ravioli entree was a bit wintry for late september, but everything else was really yummy and well presented. We will return in a heartbeat - what a wonderful find!

Friendly and tasty
In the Flatiron District of NYC, this restaurant has a hip vibe. It is comfortable, with a quirky menu to match. The service is genuinely friendly. The food tastes great. I went there for brunch and had duck hash and a salad. Amazing.

Love the brasserie-style food
Love the brasserie-style food and ambience; definitely a favorite.
9/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
love that they had spaghetti
love that they had spaghetti squash entrees as an option to pasta!
the waiter had a fun personality
nice, well rounded menu options
Bartenders let you taste the wine you ordered vs just pouring a glass of wine- nice touch

First Rate Dining Experience
Enjoyed a rare October meal outdoors in NYC.
Great patio to enjoy the fresh air and people-watching.
My chicken with potatoes and green beans was excellent.
My friends enjoyed the three bean salad and the mac and cheese.
Service was top notch. Attentive even though the restaurant was quite busy for a lunch.

Great food-unusually bad service
Food was great as usual. The service is usually impeccable but not this time! The waiter was not engaged, spilled water all over the table when refilling the glasses, accidentally poured our red wine into a water glass instead of wine glass, didn't respond to a request for a new napkin, didn't notice we were missing cutlery when our meal arrived, and took longer to find out if the bar stocked a particular after dinner drink than it took to order and receive a different drink ordered when the inquiry was made.

Great food but couldn't hear
Loved the restaurant and the food but couldn't hear ourselves over the noise.

Almond is a Gem
My husband and I ate in Almond's sidewalk area on one of the last beautiful evenings of fall. The setting was perfect. The food and service was excellent. The charcuterie plate and brussel sprout ceasar salad were top-notch. Ginger infused apple crisp and chocolate pot de cream were an excellent end to the evening. Atmosphere is welcoming and elegant hip/casual.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Could be a corporate, but not bad.
Most everything was well prepared. Pappardelle was al dente and sauce was full of flavor, flatiron cooked to exact specification, but short ribs , although good, came up a little short from others we have had, Service wasn't all that attentive. Wine list was pricey and a cookie selection offered for dessert was nothing special. However, all in all, not bad. If you like a vibrant scene, go. A quiet dine, not so.
10/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
great food and ambience
great food and ambience. I had the steak--prepared just right--switched out fries for fingerling potatoes. Nice portions, good drinks and dessert.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Was so pleasantly surprised by the food. Brussel Sprouts with walnuts and bacon is out of this world! Butternut Squash Ravioli is mouth watering in brown butter. Squid and scallop dishes very very good. I can't wait to go again and very soon!
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was recommended this restaurant because it's a hit in the Hamptons. I'm glad Almond opened up in the city and excited to try the food. Great for catching up with friends or if you want a one to one with your partner. I would definitely try out this place again.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Absolutely loved the Macaroni and Cheese! Had proscuitto and truffles-perfect touch! Chocolate mousse for dessert was the icing on the cake! The hubby and I were celebrating our anniversary and it was a great suggestion from my friend! Will definitely return at a later date :)
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing food and great atmosphere. wonderful service- just all round great place.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Have passed by this restaurant numerous times during the day on the way to the hairdresser and decided to make a reservation for a dinner that was convenient for me coming into the City and for a friend who works nearby. I ordered the Scottish salmon that came with enough vegetables (I love vegetables and some restaurant feel a design on the plate is a vegetable). It was delicious. My friend ordered the chicken with her special instructions (she has eaten there before and they do what she asks); obviously she's happy with the results. She also ordered a side of string beans ( a healthy size). The young woman who served us was very attentive. I would definitely come again. The only negative is the noise level; but it IS a popular place.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love Almond. This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend and I can't stop thanking her. The food is yummy, the service is wonderful, and the atmosphere is perfect for any occasion. Go and enjoy!

great food & drinks!!!
some of the waitress are GREAT while others weren't as professional...
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Came here for brunch with a group of 7. The table we were sat at was a bit too large for our group, which made talking to each other a little difficult. However, other than that, the food was great and he service was friendly. I would definitely go back
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice brunch with friends
Service was friendly and efficient. Brunch type food (eggs, french toast, etc) was good. (One of us ordered a hamburger, which was not as good as expected. )
With one drink each, the bill came to $65/couple, which we thought was a bit high for brunch, but overall it was a good place and I would go back! ;)
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delicious food offerings with a vintage-y ambience: soft, amber lighting, pool table in a corner room, etc. Amazing food: savory, well-cooked and seasoned perfectly. Quite happy with my experience.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
always consistantly good ...
always consistantly good ... glad the prok chop is a regular on the menu !!
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Overall, I liked it a lot... reasonably priced too, even with a bottle of wine... plenty of food, come hungry
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Almond has and spicy Bloody Mary
The Duck Confit Hash is great stuff and the brunch cocktails, ideally at the bar, are a winning combo. Nice and sizable spot. Better and less over crowded than several Flatiron mainstays coasting on reputations built on fading past glories.
Go for brunch, dinner, drinks..... Always worth the trip.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Considerate staff, reliable food
Almond is T H E place to get lunch in the Flatiron district if you need to be done in 45 minutes or an hour plus 1/2. The staff listens and accommodates. This week needed a long lunch and no one bothered us and the lentil soup, Brussels sprout Caesar, Salmon and roasted chicken were all excellent.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Got together with friends from Birmingham for a reunion. Service was pleasant and efficient. Waitress made good suggestions and was very friendly. Food was good, I had cavatelli with sausage and greens - very good. Nice wine selection as well. High noise level on a Tuesday night but I would recommend.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very unique menu with great
Very unique menu with great options for brunch and lunch. Nothing about this place is boring. Do not be fooled by the name- Being allergic to nuts myself I thought I was screwed-it's just not the case. Service is light and friendly- thank you Adam and April for a beautiful brunch with my family. I recommend the Macaroni and cheese with prosciutto... the best I have had in a while .
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
My go-to brunch spot
This restaurant never disappoints. From the excellent service, to friendly staff and management, to the delicious food and fresh baked scones served at brunch, this restaurant is one of my faves. I take ALL of my friends/family here visiting from out of town and they all love it and talk about it for days!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Surprising spot for many occasions.
We arrived at 5:30 and were seated but told the dinner menu was not available until 6::00 (the time of our reservation). The waiter took our dinner order in spite of our early arrival. His recommendations and descriptions of the menu items was in depth and on the money. The Friday special, rack of lamb, was excellent.
Don't seat near the bar if you don't want the bustle and noise.
Noticed several families with young children. Tables for six, eight and ten available.

Lovely Brunch choice
Almond was easy to get a reservation for 4 plus a baby. They had the table set up, were extremely accommodating, the service was helpful and courteous, and they didn't mind cleaning up all the cheerios that landed on the floor. They even have a "baby menu", and the adults finished the left over scrambled eggs with cheese because it was so delicious. The special of the day, a lobster avocado omelet was the best brunch I've had all year. The outdoor patio looked great, and after brunch we strolled to Madison Square Park for some fun people watching.
