A word from Tartinery
Tartinery is the modern version of the traditional french bistro. Its concept, inevitably, revolves around the Tartine, which can be described as a classic and gourmet open-faced sandwich served on a razor-thin slice of toasted bread. Our feature bread is the well-renowed Poilane country bread from St Germain-des-Pres in Paris. Among our 17 recipes you will find a tartine you will love at any hour of the day to share or not to share. In addition, we also offer typical salads, seasonal soups (hot & chilled), homemade desserts, freshly squeezed juices and a unique selection of boutique and organic wines by the glass, carafe and bottle. We are a wine bar and “tapas” bar French style by evenings. The entire menu is chalk-written on the wall above the concrete bar. Chalk walls are also found in the restrooms, where customers can leave their own personal messages of appreciation. The industrial decor is a tactful blend of New York classics and european soul.Continued

- Let me enjoy the good foodFunnightVIPDined on 4/5/2013Over all it was ok. We were late and we apologized for it and were willing to wait for a table. They made a big deal out of it and the entire time we were dinning we felt rushed and un-welcomed. The food was fine. It's a cute place. I just don't think they wanted us there. Oh well. I would recommend it and would try it again but only if I was in the area.
- I love this little restaurantLocalArchitectVIPDined on 4/3/2013I love this little restaurant for Lunch. Service and food are great. The place is so nicely designed without being too self conscious. I am glad to have this as a regular spot in the neighborhood.Special Features:
- This is a good casual dinnerOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 3/21/2013This is a good casual dinner spot that is nice but not formal. Good simple foods.Special Features:
- Love the interior design ofReliableVIPDined on 3/15/2013Love the interior design of this restaurant. Had the prix fixe lunch for $13 that comes with soup and a small version of their open faced 'sandwich'. Great location - for those shopping in Soho and Little Italy, NOLITA etc.Special Features:
- I enjoyed the food, ambiance,OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 3/1/2013I enjoyed the food, ambiance, and the drinks...except for the service. The server by the name Tania was not friendly and rude. Granted the entire night was busy, but there's always a way to be attentive with your customers. She didn't check on us to see how if everything was ok. On top of it, she forgot to give us a dessert menu when I had asked for it and didn't even apologize. I ended up asking the host. Make matters worse she basically kicked us out because she had another party for the table. It was the way she said it. She was not nice about it. Very rude. I would definitely go back for the food, but I will be not be served by Tania again.
- A real parisian experienceOpenTable Diner Since 2009VIPDined on 2/23/2013Their tarts and nutella desert is phenomenal. The scene is amazing. People are nice. You feel like you're in a Paris when you're in Tartinery. The staff are all French and friendly, not to forget to mention, they're all handsome French men.
- Overall this was a great find-OpenTable Diner Since 2012VIPDined on 2/21/2013Overall this was a great find- the food is delicious, try the carrot cake for desert! However, they kicked us out as soon as we put our desert spoons down, which was really a shame. They obviously try to book in as many people as they can.Special Features:
- Service was lovely: attentive,dinerVIPDined on 2/20/2013Service was lovely: attentive, but not intrusive. The French onion soup had a delicious cheesy toast, but the broth lacked depth of flavor. Pale onion slices instead of amber richness from carmelizatikn. The chicken Tartine was oddly bland.
- Great restaurant! Food wasKwillVIPDined on 2/16/2013Great restaurant! Food was good, service was perfect, nice ambiance. Only suggestion would be tables a LITTLE further apart.Special Features:
- Tertinery has a great ambianceOlyuEkyuDined on 2/15/2013Tertinery has a great ambiance - both romantic and energetic. We had a small table downstairs - the interior is very nice and the music was coll, too. The staff was extremely friendly. The crowd around us was French speaking as well that gave the atmosphere of being in beloved France. We ordered a bottle of rose, a goat-cheese salad and 2 tartines - with tuna and duck. The salad was amazing, the duck tartine as well, the tuna was good, but I think there were better options on the menu. We had a muffin for dessert - was too sweet to my taste, but otherwise a nice option. The overall experience was very pleasant, and I enjoyed it a lot.Special Features:
- Great Experience! Must come back!OpenTable Diner Since 2013VIPDined on 2/7/2013Welcoming decor and atmosphere visible from outside. Found parking right out front My husband and I were greeted by three francophone men. We were offered a nice table for two. Spacing between the adjacent tables was great. Server was very attentive and kind. I recommend the Salads, Tartines, and Wine... Would have loved to try the Soups! I loved the atmosphere so much, I felt like I was in a different country!Special Features:
- food is great but service is slowOpenTable Diner Since 2008VIPDined on 2/2/2013The place looks bigger on the outside.....the food and bread is excellent, but the service is a bit lacking. Granted it was a busy night, but i'd imagine it was like that every saturday and for a restaurant in the area to have the expertise. I waited about 20 mins, after asking twice, to order my food...it was just a bit sloppy and unorganized. Would recommend if you're not in a hurry and have lots of time. Also, the hanging lights are annoyingly low so I hit my head against it a few times....be careful!
- Man does not live by decor aloneCloudsinthsilverliningVIPDined on 1/20/2013The place is lovely, striking, but the food is sadly mediocre overall. One tartine was quite tasty, the duck, another, the poulet roti, was almost inedible, but the soups were all quite nice (butternut, chestnut/mushroom, chicken). And the service was spotty and cold.
- Repeat CustomersItalianSnobVIPDined on 1/13/2013What can I say? I have a sweet spot for Tartinery. I discovered it one day, and brought my parents back the next. We were the only Americans in the place (it has a very French feel) but we love it because they allow you to sit and enjoy your meal - unlike so many NYC joints that rush you out the door and make it very obvious they want to resit your table. The meals are the perfect amount. You never leave feeling stuffed but it's the CORRECT amount of food. It's reasonably priced and the Duck Confit Tartine is delicious!Special Features:
- Merci...unique little bistroJennDined on 12/24/2012I've always passed by this place and it seems so interesting, so I reserved a table for 3 for a best friends reunion. Indeed, I was right about being interesting! This little french bistro is designed for small get-togethers and their unique menu. Food was delish and light as we ordered some Tartines, main courses, and dessert. (May be too bland for some people.) Service was okay.. missed one main course order but quickly served it. - I blame it on the fact that the servers were French, as they had gorgeous accents and probably didn't hear what I said due to noise. Overall, I would go back to try more of their menu and to feel a little bit more french~Special Features:
- Everything was great exceptWine247365VIPDined on 12/12/2012Everything was great except the hostess who literally ROLLED HER EYES when we asked for a different table.Special Features:
- We went to tart inert forNYCFoodieVIPDined on 12/12/2012We went to tart inert for dinner and although the food was good it felt like we were having lunch rather than dinner. There food is served open faced on toast. I say go for lunch and have dinner somewhere elseSpecial Features:
- The food here is always deliciousOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 11/24/2012The food here is always delicious and comes out promptly. The servers are friendly though sometimes spacey (we had to remind them to fill both our wine and water glasses). They called day of the reservation to push it back an hour as they'd somehow overbooked which seemed odd and unprofessional for a nice NYC restaurant.
- Disappointing. We had highFattyCDined on 11/17/2012Disappointing. We had high hopes as a result of the great reviews on here; however, there was little atmosphere despite it being very busy, the service was disinterested and the food was the worst of our four day stay in NYC. Steak minute tartine with caramelised onions and mustard sounded great. In reality, the bread was dry, the steak overcooked and the onions were not properly caramelised. The mustard was grain rather than Dijon and there was a scant spoonful. I could have cooked better at home (and in fact, the day before had the most amazing brisket sandwich in Jeffrey's in Greenwich Village, which was cheaper and much more delicious). Triumph of style over content. Don't bother.
- Decent food; poor service.OpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 11/9/2012My boyfriend and I ate here with a coupon from Gilt City. As soon as we told our waitress this, her demeanor changed and it became clear that she wanted to turn our table as quickly as possible. The deal we had purchased included two drinks, two small tartines, two entrees and a dessert. She made us order everything at once and we felt extremely rushed. Nonetheless I wanted to tip her for the original amount which would've been $25 for a 20% tip. I only had two twenty dollar bills so I asked her to break one. She came back with one of the twenties and two tens, making it so that I had to give her a $30 tip. It was pretty annoying. I also noticed in my way out that their health department score is a B. I won't be returning.Special Features:
- Great concept. Good food.OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIPDined on 10/27/2012Great concept. Good food. Perfect for sharing with a big group. Awesome area. Reasonable wine.Special Features:
- InterestingBEB718Dined on 10/7/2012I read many reviews indicating this is a great restaurant for brunch - so we made reservations for Sunday brunch. While there are indeed 2 brunch items on the menu - I certainly would not consider this a brunch destination in the traditional sense. Brunch or not, the food we did order was tasty. We were seated at a table in the bar area where the seating is very tight/cramped. The bar tables are too small for food and beverages - more appropriate size for beverages alone. Servers were friendly and overall the place has a nice contemporary vibe. If I return I will probably ask to be seated downstairs as it looked less cramped than the bar area.Special Features:
- Great space. Very noisy inOpenTable Diner Since 2010VIPDined on 10/6/2012Great space. Very noisy in the evening. The ratatouille tartine is good but VERY spicy!

- Great spotOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 9/29/2012I made a reservation and arrived there on time. Therefore, I didn't have to wait to get seated. The food is very tasty and the selection of wines is good . The ambiance is very pleasing as well. I will definitely go back to this restaurant.Special Features:
- Tartinery excels in ambiance:OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 9/28/2012Tartinery excels in ambiance: the restaurant is beautiful and has excellent service. My friend and I had tartines, which are more or less open-faced sandwiches. They used fresh ingredients which combined together made for an excellent and filling meal.Special Features:
- We always love Tartinery.OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 9/22/2012We always love Tartinery. The food is always fresh and good, the ambiance is wonderful, and the staff are very gracious and helpful. It is one of our go-to restaurants in NY. We like the tartines. The pate was delightful. The deserts were perfect.Special Features:
- very average food. easy toOpenTable Diner Since 2005VIPDined on 8/24/2012very average food. easy to get a table. not a bad scene.
- The service could use work.YummyVIPDined on 8/10/2012The service could use work. The wine was good. I had the Nicoise salad and it looked as though they used canned tuna. That in my opinion is not acceptable especially is you are charging $14 for it. There were also no potatoes in it. My friend had a tartine which looked goodbut the bread was soggy. They have to upgrade bc in that neighborhood they have potential to do well but there are many critics and the food needs to be better, as well as the service.Special Features:
- The waitress was fine, butOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 7/25/2012The waitress was fine, but only one person for a weekday lunch is not enough even though the bartender tried to help. I skipped dessert because I could not wait any longer.Special Features:
- Food is good but very basicOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 7/12/2012Food is good but very basic (tartines with spread, without any side) and quite expensive (for what you get) but we're in Soho...Otherwise the place is very nice & trendy, so if you wanna bring a date or friends, this spot is a good one.Special Features:
- Had the French RestaurantOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 7/9/2012Had the French Restaurant week special 2012 and it was a Tartine and glass of wine for $17.89. The ricotta tartine was really well done, enough to share with two people and we ordered the monk fish with it. The mango salsa was very fresh. Overall, I would have suggested that they provided a bit of bread to go with the monkfish, because you get fish chunks in a bowl and mango salsa on top with a couple of slices of zucchini. Service was good, attentative. I'd go back again.Special Features:
- we had a wonderful, friendlyscribblepostDined on 6/24/2012we had a wonderful, friendly server and the appetizers were really tasty; frankly, i was not blown away by the tartines, which are supposed to be the main attraction. while the ingredients were fresh, i found the bread to be too tough/crusty at the edges...basically, these aren't much more than fancy open-faced sandwiches.
- Tartinery has a trendy butOpenTable Diner Since 2011VIPDined on 6/22/2012Tartinery has a trendy but relaxed vibe, and somehow avoids feeling too much like the usual Nolita scene. I thought the tartines were ok, but they weren't quite to my taste. Check this place out if you love tartines

- Went with a group of 7, oneOpenTable Diner Since 2006VIPDined on 5/19/2012Went with a group of 7, one of whom cannot eat meat. She ordered the brunch tartine with scrambled eggs and roasted tomatoes, and when asked if she wanted bacon, she indicated that she was vegetarian and that no, she did not. When they brought out her meal, it was covered in bacon, and when pointing it to our waiter, he asked her, "yes, do you mind?" What kind of service and common sense is that? They offered to "remake" the dish and bring it back, but all they did was take the existing dish and ATTEMPT to remove the offending bacon from the plate, which was obvious because there was STILL pieces of bacon when they brought the plate back. Food was mediocre at best for the rest of us, I would avoid this place like the plague.
- Unique dining experience ...OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 5/12/2012Unique dining experience ... not your typical french restaurant. Terrific tartines, excellent wine and great service. Will definitely go back.
- Onion soup was hearty andLCbklynDined on 5/8/2012Onion soup was hearty and very flavorful. Bread was great and also hearty. Tartines were built perfectly with exactly the right amount of each ingredient, even though it might look light in comparison with most American sandwiches; when I tried to leave a bite of bread behind and put the meat from it on another bite the balance was off and it didn't taste nearly as good.
