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.

    Over 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 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.

    Tertinery 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.

    Welcoming 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!

    The 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!

    The 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.

    What 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!

    I'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~

    The 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 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.

    My 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.

    I 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.

    The 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.

    Had 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.

    Went 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.

    Onion 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.
