Saxon + Parole
Totally worth goingExcellent food, attentive service. They have us a fabulous table when I mentioned in my request that my date was tall. Outdoor seating looked very nice. Great for a date. Romantic dining room. Will definitely go again.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place, Good FoodThe drinks are well made... the fact that they can't make a cosmo due to no cranberry juice is a downer, but they have other amazing custom cocktails.
The food is outstanding and honestly WELL proportioned. I hate getting large amounts of OK food. Quality over quantity, and Saxon + Parole has it down!
I was much less impressed with our waiter. If I would describe him as slow, I would be understating it. On top of that, after we closed our check, we decided to have another round of drinks. He came back 10 minutes later and said we would have to go to the bar or the separate but connected establishment for more drinks because he wanted to close out the section. Others were still placing their food orders. That left a bad taste with me!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMJonathon LeivaI just want to say that he is a genius. I followed him from The Lion and I love what he does in the kitchen.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Food, Staff so soThe food was amazing!
The actual server was not so attentive, he didn't keep our Rose bottle chilled, took him 25 mins to take our order and didn't check in on us to see how were doing.
Our water was constantly refilled thanks to the bus boys/runners.
Thankfully we weren't in a rush the food was great. However would of liked a bit more attention and care.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSpot On HipsterSaxon and Parole manages to find that delicate balance between functioning restaurant with good food and service and a sort of hipster vibe due, primarily, to the carefully executed decor and the excellent lighting. I've been with family, with college age folks, and with clients- all with great success. Have a cocktail next door at Madame Geneva's first (same owner), and you can sort of skip the trip out to Brooklyn to eat.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Saxon and Parole ExperienceFirstly let me say that I have eaten in many restaurants all over the World, and Saxon and Parole located at 316 The Bowery off Bleecker Street is my favourite in Greenwich Village, the staff ensure that a brilliant atmosphere is created for couples and groups alike. The food is cooked to the highest of standards with a perfect choice of drinks to accompany your meal on the wine list. The location of restaurant is also good to provide the perfect night out in Manhattan. I would and have recommended to my friends and family and have the comfort of knowing that they wouldn't be disappointed.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food, great settingThe food is innovative and creative, but not at all 'over the top' in trying to be different. It is just well presented and delicious. A great find!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMlunch on the terracelunch on the terrace was really lovely. enjoyed a couple of their 'refreshers', which are cocktail-like concoctions without booze, really nice. food was also super tasty: had the big BLAT sandwich, which was indeed massive and delicious!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, interestingDelicious food, interesting cocktails, cool ambiance, shazam'd a few songs while eating. Me and my group of 4 loved everything. Definitely going back, definitely recommend.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food! My sea bass hadGreat food! My sea bass had a crispy skin but tender, flaky meat and the mushroom side was delicious. The cocktails are also commendable. All around a great spot - suited for a date if you don't mind the loudness upstairs. Ask to be seated in the cellar downstairs for a bit more quiet.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service, ambiance, foodFriendly and good service. Hamburger came well done and I had ordered medium rare. When I complained to the waiter he immediately apologized, took it back to the kitchen and brought me a complimentary appatizer so I would have something to eat while my tablemates dined. Very thoughtful! Excellent! Great ambiance. Highly recommended.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food took forever to come,The food took forever to come, but it was delicious when it did arrive. I thought the branzino dish was too salty. LOVED all the veggie dishes. The restaurant was kind of cold too...most of us were wearing our coats. Drinks were amazing.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMthe best food downtownAmazing as per usual. LOVED our server Ella and the over all vibe was hopping but super comfortable in our booth. Got the gnocchi and the bass and was blown away by both. They suggested a rhubarb cocktail for my husband that was not sweet just perfectly balanced and I had a modern sangria of sorts. What they do at the bar is magic.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of my go-to spotsThis is one of my go-to spots for brunch in the city- absolutely love their version of eggs benedict with mangalista ham. They just started offering lunch this week, so friends and I popped in. The chilled soup was delicious, as was everything else on the menu. Fresh, light, and well-prepared. But the refreshers were the best part! Fresh squeezed juices- can't go wrong! Definitely worth the price if you can sit outside, too.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSaxon and Parole doing lunchSaxon and Parole doing lunch now is amazing!!!

This is a great spot all around! I work in the area - this s a great spot to bring clients or enjoy a nice sit down to a relaxing lunch/brunch. Enjoyed the best mid day spiked drink I've had in memory - a freshly squeezed green juice that can be ordered w or w/o the booze. EXCELLENT BLAT sandwich! Don't hesitate, just go! Your most difficult decision will be - do I sit outside in the sunshine or inside one of the best restaurant interiors around.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMNot impressed by bone marrowNot impressed by bone marrow app but Brussels sprout app was good and burger was fantastic.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very good as usualFood was very good as usual but service left to be desired. They knew we were celebrating my birthday and did absolutely nothing about it. Even when we let the manager himself know. Disappointing, I expected them to be a bit more attentive.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDined on the terrace...beautifulTables are now out front for Spring and the whole place was buzzing. The food was prepared perfectly and we started with a mushroom pot (which is a must- one of the best hidden secrets on the menu). Ended with a smores in a jar thingy which smells like a yummy campfire when opened.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was delicious andThe food was delicious and the service was outstanding - everything was spot on. Thanks for a great dining experience!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA must visit....Wonderful dining experience here on our recent visit to NYC. The steak was superb and the sides particularly
the chilli caramel Brussel sprouts were to die for. Highly recommend4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphere. AmazingGreat atmosphere. Amazing food. The roasted chicken was unreal. Our waiter was fabulous.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent, however,The food was excellent, however, the hostess was standoff-ish and snobby and the waiter was a bit ditzy. He never brought us bread - some tables got it, some didn't. He dribbled wine all over the table which he didn't even attempt to wipe up.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHad one of my best meals inHad one of my best meals in New York here. The food was outstanding, and the waiter simply charming. The only slight marr to the evening was the po-faced receptionists; two rather snooty girls who were totally charmless. Also the room was a tad chilly for a wintery night...but we didnt let those things ruin our night!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMReally enjoyed the place:Really enjoyed the place: really pretty interior, good cocktail list, many types of oysters, delicious food. Will definitely go back.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding meal. Mini seafoodOutstanding meal. Mini seafood tower, Berkshire pork chop(perfection) Brussels sprout and beet salad sides , all excellent. Imaginative desserts, best of which were S'mores and donuts3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wine, food, and serviceThe wine, food, and service were all outstanding. Very cool decor. My only critique was that the music was a little loud. I did like the music selections, however, so eventually I got used to the volume and it didn't bother me, especially as the restaurant filled and it got noisier. When we first arrived at 6:00, the restaurant was pretty empty. By the time we left at 7:45, every table was occupied and the bar was humming.I suppose that by the time we left, the volume of the music was totally appropriate.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother amazing meal at myAnother amazing meal at my local fave. Obsessed with the sweet potato gnocchi right now and the Brussels sprouts with yuzu hollandaise. Also the cocktails are top shelf so there is always something delightful and new. Did the Moscow mule and I don't know what's in it, but its a perfect balance of sweet and sour without being too sweet! Highly recommend the whole experience.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for New Year's Eve expectingWent for New Year's Eve expecting simply an adequate meal given it was NYE but was pleasantly surprised with an excellent meal. Since then it's turned into our "local" bar and the cocktails are excellent and the bartenders are very friendly.3/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
