A word from The Bleecker Street
Inspired by the sights and sounds of Greenwich Village, THE BLEECKER STREET brings a little taste of lower Manhattan to Southern California. The interior is "Village Fun" with influences from SOHO, Little Italy and the warehouse district. Imagine the feeling of sitting between two vintage buildings at Barollo in SOHO,or the new meets old open industrial feeling of Peasant in NOLITA(North Little Italy), or the comfortable refined feel of Gemma's candles and dark woods in the Bowery. Bleecker Street is every bit and more.
Dress is urban casual with servers taking your order on a bent knee or sitting at an open seat. When you come to Bleecker Street, you're not coming to a restaurant you're coming to our home. We want to be the 1st place you think about when you say " I need to relax"

Diner Reviews
  • "The restaurant is very stylish with the modern rustic look that's so popular now. The service was great, although we had an early dinner and not many other patrons. The fish was overcooked and chewy and the pasta sauce had too many capers, which gave it an "off" overpowering flavor, especially for a white fish dish."

  • "Great location with terrific trendy spot to people watch. The food was simply average at best. We tried many appetizers, entrees and dessert as well. All was just OK. Service was fine and prices are very reasonable. So dgo for a early evening drink and a pizza..."

  • "I usually like Bleeker Street but the experience this time was just so so. The hostess was slow and not very attentive. The food was good but nothing stood out. And the creme brulee- the top was soggy and not hard like normal creme brulee's. The waiter was awesome and friendly though he did forget to have us taste the wine when we bought a bottle which to me is a no no."

  • "It's dineLA week and there's only one person manning this participating restaurant at lunch. Ill-planned wouldn't you think? Ordered off the special dineLA menu and the steak came out overdone I couldn't slice it with the knife. Understandably so the poor lone server couldn't find the opportunity to make my cappuccino so she comped me with iced tea. Thank you for the effort. It's too bad there was very little to work with in that situation."

  • "This was a last minute dineLA find. We live I'm Northridge and this Tarzana spot was one of the closest to us. We were pleasantly surprised by the laid back cool vibe inside Bleeker Street. The portions were so generous we were stuffed and took dessert home. Crab cake appetizer was delicious. There was sauce and potatoes on the side that were so satisfying. My bf got the rare ahi tuna app that was perfect. I ordered the lamb as a main cooked rare and it was more cooked medium but the flavor was there so I forgive that. Bf ordered the mushroom and seafood risotto which was so rich and filling ( I'm a good way.) I highly recommend checking this place out!"

  • "Food was good. Menu had a lot to choose from. I recommend sharing a pizza if you get one as they are really big. The parking was easy, ambience is nice and the service was good. Overall a great experience. I would go back."

  • "I realize that The Bleecker Street has been around for a few years but I've never had reason to dine in and around Tarzana. I'm really happy we picked this spot. The salad choices were great and the freshness of the food was fantastic. We met the owner and she really does take the time and attention needed to make sure your meal is enjoyable. We'll have to go back to try the pizza!"

  • "I went to Bleecker street for the first time on Mobday. There was free parking in the garage across the street, food was awesome, service was great. The owner was there and came out to ask us how things were going. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. We will definitely return every time we are near by."

  • "Our server was nice but MIA most of the time. We ordered soup which was the best part of the meal. My lettuce in my wedge salad was not cold and crisp, it was luke warm and a little wilty. My turkey burger was not good (which I think is supposed to be one of their specialties). It almost tasted like a so-so veggie patty. My husband's pizza came out luke warm, the cheese had no flavor, the sauce had no flavor and the tomatoes on top had absolutely no flavor. We probably won't go back unless we see from reviews that there was a major overhaul on the quality of their food. Too bad too, it's a cute place in a perfect location."

  • "The food and drinks were excellent, no complaints what-so-ever. I wish the same could be said for the staff. We were met, not greeted, by a hostess who gave us a "What do you want?" look on her face. We were seated immediately, and I pulled out my phone and turned on the stopwatch app. I had a feeling this was going to be interesting. A little over 7 minutes after we were seated our server Rane made his way to our table. After we placed our order we waited 16 minutes for our starters, and an additional 19 minutes for our entrées. If the place had been busy I could have maybe understood, but there were a grand total of 18 customers. The staff never smiled, almost as if they didn't want to be there. Honestly, not sure I'll return."

  • "We went for lunch on the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend, and the place was very quiet, which was fine with us. We were seated quickly, and our server, who turned out to be the bartender, made great recommendations on our drinks and entrees. I forget the bartender's name, but he did make a yummy margarita. My ahi tuna burger, medium rare, was very good, and the side of truffle fries was even better. My friend had the whitefish, which came with mashed potatoes and veggies, and he said it was all tasty, but he'd had better. We'll be back though. "

  • "We walked in through the velvet curtains...and we waited. Waited for someone to greet us, ask us why we were there...nothing. Finally, I asked someone rushing by with some plates if we could be seated, or was there a hostess. The hostess came over and we still waited a good 10 mins before we were even seated. That's not a problem if it's busy, but there were 3 open tables. We finally get seated and no lie, it takes about 20 mins for the server to even come give us menu's. At this point my date is ready to go, but I'm saying, it can get better...right...Not at all. Food was greasy, they brought small water glasses with wine spilled in it. They turned water into wine...Took them forever to come clear the plates. Not going back, ever. "

  • "We come here frequently, to enjoy the great burgers, the delicious fish, and a terrific beer list. We appreciate the breadth of the menu. Last night my husband and I split a tuna tartare appetizer - a vertically stacked one, over a cylinder of rice. Very tasty. He went on to consume a huge, juicy, delicious hamburger, and I chowed down on an excellent piece of halibut, with a mustard crust, and delicious steamed vegetables (carrots, cauliflower, zucchini and broccoli). We enjoy being upstairs by the balcony railing and looking down on the main room. "

  • "I've been here 3 times and the food is always really good. Tried the burger, truffle fries, Farmer's chopped salad, lobster grilled cheese and would rate them all xlnt. Only negative for me is the location. I live in the east valley - wish they would open is Studio City! "
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "What a great find! Great service, burgers, truffle fries, mac n cheese (although I'd offer the option to have truffle mac [they might have considered truffle oil if we had asked]). Only regret was didn't have the pizza (which we hear is excellent), but now we'll be back! But not soon enough!"

  • "Bleeker street is unique it has great food! The last coupleof time I have been it has not been so busy. I think the service needs to be stepped up a little. For not being so busy the staff was not so attentive. My firiend wanted a Mai Tai and the bar did not have the ingrdients to make one. I think with a bit more attention to detail, this place could be a great hot spot"

  • "Bleeker Street continues to impress time after time. Great service, food, beverage, etc. Has become my go-to meeting spot for catching up with friends I haven't seen in a while. The friendly and accommodating staff allows you to take your time, enjoy your meal and does not rush you to turn the table, but remains attentive with frequent trip to check on your happiness status. Kitchen is willing to adapt order to your taste (hold the mash potatoes, add more veggies) and the menu is exotic enough to make it interesting but does not sound like a lab experiment. Try the Red Velvet Cake dessert....moist, delicious and better than most!"

  • "My wife and I ate here on Saturday for a quick dinner and dined at the community high top table and ate off the happy hour bar menu. Our waitress Lara was very nice, but did not know the menu very well and constantly had to go back into the kitchen or speak to her Manager to answer our questions. The questions were very basic things that a waitress should know, such as how many buffallo wings come in each order and weather the menu listed the happy hour prices or were were the prices half off the listed price? The bread was extremely stale on the sliders we ordered, so much so that I took the sliders off the bread and ate it without bread. We have eaten here before and had a better experience, but for $70, I am not sure we will be back!"

  • "This restaurant was so cute, and the food was pretty nice. I cannot figure out why it was so empty, when surrounding area were booming. Maybe because it's located in the back, and the outside dining was next to a fairly busy parking lot."

  • "Bleecker Street has the advantage of being just off "the Boulevard," while still in the middle of a terrific area jam-packed with all kinds of places you'll want to go -- (Coffee shops, restaurants, stores, Whole Foods, etc., etc.). While the menu looks to be your basic pizza and pub grub, every dish I've tried has been surprisingly good -- a cut above what one would expect. The thin crust rectangular pizzas are enormous and delicious! And there's plenty of fare with lots of greenery, so you're free to make the healthy choice, too. The bar is terrific, with lots of tasty, reasonably priced cocktails and wines. It manages to be a great choice for an after-work drink with coworkers -- or a family meal! All this -- and free parking."

  • "We had to wait 40 minutes although we had a reservation. Very apologetic.....comped corkage. Service was weak at best....server didn't seem that busy but still was un-attentive....very friendly though. Had to ask several times to get water. Food was very average....almost mediocre. Food came out cold."

  • "I have been here a few times and will always buy the LivingSocial or Groupon certificate, knowing that I will consistently have a great meal. This time, I had ciopino, and it was fantastic. We had reservations and arrived a bit late, so wound up at the bar. It took a while to get service (very crowded and busy), but when we did, the bar tender and waiters were friendly and helpful."
