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.

    Food was amazing but service was horrific. Had reservations for 7 people for my birthday so we showed up 20 min early. They sat us 30 min after our reservation time so we had to wait for almost an hour to be seated. Once they seated us they only had a table for 6 and said there wasn't anything they could do about it so we had to squeeze. Took 15 min before a server even came by the table only to tell us that he wasn't our server, our server was busy and would be by shortly. Thankfully the food was really good. Not sure I would go back.

    Having spent a long part of my life in France I was excited about the tartines and was not disappointed! We had the croque madame and the blue cheese and fig tartines as well as the French onion soup and two glasses of Malbec. The price was reasonable, the atmosphere was warm and upbeat. The service was a tad slow but I got the feeling the waiter was just trying to give us space to enjoy the meal, closer to the French style of waiting that many Americans are not used to. The portions were filling and we left feeling catered to and full of thoughtful and flavorful cuisine. I would definitely recommend Tartinery, especially if you're looking for a cozy but upbeat and youthful place for a date.

    The tartines are delicious, so is the rest of the menu. The price is affordable, and you eat well. Portions are a good size. The place is beautiful, the decoration is very rock/romantic, and it's a perfect place to go with friends to share French tartines, either for couples. The service is outstanding, they speak both English & French, and they smile. I recommend this place!!

    Yes, I would recommend to friends for wine and tartines. Unfortunately we were not thrilled at all with the service. The waiter was obviously overwhelmed and needed another set of hands to help. We would've ordered more wine and food had he been able to give us more attention. My favorites were the steak tartare Tartine and the lobster Tartine, and the kale Caesar salad and Cobb salad were also very good.

    I'm happy that I was able to organize a brunch for my friends here. I usually go eat here with just one friend or two but to be able to do it for 12 was a toughie. Even if that was the case, I have to say, getting a reservation was rather swift and the manager was actually kind enough to accommodate my request although eventually I had to not push for it BUT still that says a lot about this place. They are actually willing to bend just a little bit just to make sure you get a wonderful experience. Merci beaucoup.

    Met a date there. We enjoyed the onion soup and shared 2 tatines, the shrimp and avocado on sourdough bread, and the fig with blue cheese on country bread. The onion soup was hearty, loaded with cheese; its broth lacked salt and pepper, but once added was quite good. The tatines were both very delicious. The white house wine was ok, nothing spectacular, the rose version was alot better and seemed to partner our dishes much better. Our server was very attentive and made a point to make our time special. Would definitely recommend for a date spot.

    What a find! I was walking in front of Tartinery everyday without realising that it was a neighbourhood gem. The food is so simple and so good! You definitely have to try the ravioles. Best cheese pasta I had in my life. Really! I didn't know what was a tatine - toasted bread with different toppings. So nice to share with your girlfriend. The barman was really helpful and chill. I'll be back every week!

    Had lunch here recently and was surprised to happen on it as it is near to one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants. I had seen the location at Hudson Eats but had yet to try it out. We had the prix fix lunch which was a generous portion of a tartine with soup or desert of the day. My chicken tartine was delicious as was the soup. The wine list is decent and reasonable and the setting is perfect for relaxing with a glass or two and watching the streetscape. Tables are cozy but the expansive glass face makes it not feel tight or cramped. We will be back and are now are all the more likely to give the Brookfield place location a try as well.

    Great location in Nolita in a wonderful setting. Service was attentive; noise level great for a family dinner. Warm, inviting below-ground main dining room with soft lighting and well organized tables. Foie gras was excellent, as was the artichoke salad. Arugula and chèvre chaud salad was also very good. The croque madame was also very good. The onion soup, however, did not live up to expectations. The fondant au chocolat was excellent, according to my children. The cheese was both well selected and presented. We will return to Tartinery to try a few more plates.

    Tucked away on Mulberry Street in Nolita is Tartinery. We were led to a downstairs table, a more quiet locale than the street level bar area. The downstairs area is roughly a square room with banquette seating around the perimeter of the room. In the center of the room is a tree with decorative lighting; a table surrounding the tree and seating surrounding the table. The south wall is adorned with pictures of Paris and musicians. Music from the 60's and 70's plays in the background. In reviews I almost always write about the food, except at the Tartinery it is as much about the experience as the food. The food is novel and well done, but not the reason I liked this place so much.

    it was good, but not extraordinary, there were only tartines, it's logical, but sometimes you wanna something else than bread! Otherwise it was really good but the price won't worth it. Service was very good! The place is beautyful and great for big groups!!! Finally, i would've expected that the restaurant had closed later (at 11PM we have been put out the restaurant!)

    A lovely spot for a leisurely brunch/lunch with variations on a theme for "tarts" which aren't...more "assembled" open faced sandwiches. The eggs benedict with crispy bacon are delicious and perhaps the best priced item on the menu. Atmosphere...rustic modern, very attractive, service, friendly and attentive.

    Our waiter seemed inexperienced and uninterested while the hosts at the front door were inattentive, and considering it was 8:00 on a Saturday night, I don't understand why they wouldn't have their absolute best staff on hand. That being said, I'll chalk it up to a fluke. Food was wonderful though the menu is limited and the crowd/ambiance was pleasant. Exactly what I expect in SoHo on a Saturday. Low key and trendy with a great glass of wine.
