Diner Reviews
  • "We always love the Fat Radish - it is healthy and interesting in the best possible way!"
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Recommendation that I will be passing on to everyone I know visiting NYC. Stunning restaurant, amazing atmosphere, great service and phenomenal food. #highlyrecommended "

  • "I was expecting great things. Despite a cute setting, but the service wasn't friendly and the food just fine."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "It's always a treat when we get to share a meal at Fat Radish, food is always delicious, creative and comforting. Service is cheerful, efficient and personalized. Although tables are close to each which can be off-putting in other restaurants, somehow here we always have a few pleasant exchanges with people close by."

  • "fresh, interesting food which has delighted us on 2 occasions. recommend esp. for those in party who want veggies, and with others who also might want a really good burger"
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "Took clients here for a work dinner and was extremely pleased with the food. In particular the grilled cheese (although I wouldn't really call it "with pickles" as there's barely any) and the Green curry monk fish. The one annoying part was that you can't order appetizers first, and then order dinner. You have to put everything in at once. I think this is a silly rule and makes everyone feel rushed, which when dining with clients, is not ideal."

  • "I took my mom here when she was visiting from out of town. We were seated at a table in the corner and at first I thought they were just squishing us in. But it ended up being the best seats in the house. You could see everything happening in the restaurant and it was quieter. I loved the food, the service and the atmosphere. A great experience and I am coming back soon!"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "The food was impeccable. Soft yolked scotch eggs and sweet but meaty bacon wrapped brussel sprouts were both perfect starters. The asparagus risotto (on special) was and scallops were equally delicious. Service was spot on, invisibly topping up our glasses and there when we needed them. So glad we managed to get a table here, I'll be back when in NYC again."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "We took an early table (5:30p). The menu is heavy with vegetable-based dishes -- not sure real Brits actually eat vegetables, but never mind me -- and they are interesting and well-prepared. We had a rice/farro risotto with mushrooms (classic), a pea pot pie (intensely green but not overwhelmingly pea-y), potato wedges roasted in duck fat (yum), butternut squash with brown butter (plain), Scotch eggs (great w/mustard, cornichons), and a really flavorful roast chicken. The place has no soft surfaces (curtain, rug, wall hangings) so I bet it gets really noisy later in the evening, but we were all good at 5:30."

  • "Beware of the fat radish plate. Unseasoned undercocked vegetables. Everything else was great."

  • "Another wonderful evening at the fat radish. Brought friends from out of town in again, as always they were thrilled with the menu, atmosphere, and hospitality."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Fat Radish was as delicious as all of the pictures on their instagram feed indicated. The ambience is super cool as well. We went for Brunch and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Cash only is always a challenge, but I had luckily seen it on the menu on were prepared in advance. I definitely recommend."

  • "Though The Fat Radish has been around a few years, this was my first visit. It won't be my last. The food is wonderful and just the type of thing my friend and I like to eat: pot-pies, casseroles, perfectly done fish and delightful donuts for dessert. That celery root and gruyere pot-pie is a classic. And, though I rarely drink a cocktail when I'm anticipating a good meal, that cucumber g&t (well, okay, two...) went really well with the perfectly done Scotch egg. It's a pretty restaurant that will remind New Yorkers of Perry Wolfman's wonderful now-gone store in SOHO. The one drawback: the noise level is "Metallica concert" and the stools without backs SHOULD be replaced with regular chairs. Still, these drawbacks will not keep me away."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "For lunch this was the perfect setting. Fresh vegetable salads with exotic varieties and grain combinations. Excellent coffee with a French press on the table. Quiet and good service. Light and upbeat interior with bar."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. all vegetables were fresh and cooked to perfection and the combinations were interesting and tasty. Would absolutely go again!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "This place is such a gem! Vegetables are definitely stars here. Celery root pot pie is a must! Scallops were cooked perfectly. Definitely check out a drink menu! Amazing, creative combinations."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Experience was great. Food and service were excellent. Only minor complaint was we made a reservation that means to me should get better table instead we got very odd location.next time when people make reservation you should conscious reserve better table for them which makes best enjoyable time to dine otherwise why bother to make reservation we can just walk in. The place was not extremely busy."

  • "We celebrated my sister's birthday on Friday. My mom, sister her daughter And I had a 5:30 reservation. My mother and I arrived early. We were asked to come back. We went back around 5:20 and stood in the back and the owner kindly Asked us to make ourselves at home - take a seat Anywhere while we wait for our table. We tried Sitting at the bar but my mom couldn't jump that High. So we sat at the farm table and then were asked To sit in the front where we were originally. A bit annoying. My sister and her daughter came and we were seated. The service was efficient but not necessarily inviting. The food was delicious, but unfortunately I had stomach issues For the rest of the weekend."

  • "Fat Radish on Orchard at Hester is a true neighborhood gem! We were transported to magical place. Each menu item was exceptionally fresh, beautifully presented, well timed & delicious!!! The service was perfect, the venue sparkled! We shared homemade hummus with a beautiful fresh array of crudite, warm pita & warm toasted sliced bread. Kale Cesar salad with a savory anchovy vinaigrette & a heirloom carrot salad w avocado & hijiki. Entrees seared Hake/broccoli rabe/ broccoli puree & perfectly seared scallops."

  • "Front of house was fantastic, very warm and welcoming. Food was extremely tasty although I would recommend sharing the sides as the butternut squash was pretty rich. Great for a chance of some good food and a chance to catch up with friends."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Great food, well considered and prepared, convivial atmosphere, lovely servers. And all that at a fair price! The ingredients feature lots of fresh vegetables."

  • "if hipsters are going to pick up on the foodie side of contemporary mores this is the place to get the first lesson..."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "Nice brunch menu - but a mixed reviews from our meal. Poached egg over potato cake with hollandaise seemed innovative but actually was heavy and soggy. Skip the donuts - these were really disappointing when compared to most other restaurants home made donuts. Not fully cooked in the center, a little greasy , stingy on the jelly filling, and barely any powdered sugar. The spicy eggs and avocado toast were spicy and delicious."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Great great find on the LES - lovely restaurant, very popular, good vibrant atmosphere, and good food - service slightly frosty -staff unimpressed with tip left I think! (12%) which for Londoners is standard - would re-visit though and recommend to others"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Super good food with terrific service. The grilled cheese appetizer was terrific Loved the space and the easy vibe. Fun"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "First visit piqued our curiosity and we'd like to return, as two people can only order so much. Cocktails much more refined and inspired than at slapdash Louro, where we recently dined. The ambience here was buzzy without being too high-intensity, and the room had a lovely genteel glow and was edgy enough to make sense on the border of Chinatown. Service was gracious and professional but relaxed. And the food was ingredients-driven and not overly fussy. The gruyere got a little lost in the celery root pot pie but the dish was still solid, as were the vegetable sides (especially the broc and black kale). Peeky toe was lovely and subtle. A great addition to an interesting neighborhood. Looking forward to scallops, chicken, burger."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "The food was outstandingly delicious!!!! however I was unable to see my meal. Maybe a few more candles on the table? Benches were pretty uncomfortable for anyone over 50, as we are. Maybe the benches that were at our table could be replaced with CHAIRS, like at the other tables.benches against the wall were fine. I'm talking about the benches with no backs. One last thing, the dessert menu was disappointing. Having 5 choices is great, but make them tempting. Dessert seemed an afterthought."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "food, wine, service were all great. the room is cozy and atmospheric. only complaint is having to perch on stools. Tables should have chairs with backs. Save the stools for the bar."

  • "My boyfriend and I came here on Tuesday night to celebrate our Valentines day! Loved everything. We ordered so much food from the menu and the prices were so reasonable! I can't wait to come back here again soon!"
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "I had a great meal here! The food was very tasteful and loved that it is seasonal and local when possible. My complaint is the service, it was just so slow. We only had a table of 3 and didn't order very complicated entrees, but it took at least 45 minutes for our food to come. It also wasn't very busy at our reserved time (7pm) but got busy around 8pm which made the wait for our food seem even longer because other tables were being served before we were. I'd go back because there are some other dishes I'd like to try but I would hope I'd have better service the second time around."
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "Absolutely adore The Fat Radish. The food is incredible - super subtle, fresh, not heavy handed at all (which is so refreshing!). Each and every appetizer, entree and desert was truly wonderful. The vegetables are amazingly delicious. The food prices are reasonable but the cocktails and wine are a bit overpriced which I hope they work on (a little more price range on drinks would be helpful). The restaurant has a great, inviting interior as well. I will definitely go back."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "the food was very good and the service was very good, but this place is a little overpriced for what it is. namely the cocktails are far too expensive for being just of average quality. also, then entrees had good servings but the appetizers were pretty spare for how much they cost. we paid $200 with tip for our meal and honestly we thought it wasn't worth it. they also have a plate of steamed vegetables you can get for $25, in case you are too lazy to make that on your own. i would only recommend it because the food was good, but not a place to treat yourself to a special dining experience or get great value."

  • "Far from everything but it is worthy the ride. Healthy delicious food ! You must also have a drink before or after at The Leadbelly, their wine bar in front ... the ambience is vibrant!"

  • "This is a really cool place with nice food. You may run into a celebrity. I would stick to their great vegetables, their meat isn't the best you will find in NY."

  • "The staff did a great job of welcoming our large group and the food was delicious. A lovely evening."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "I always get the burger. It's so good. The celery root pie is also unique and very tasty. The scotch egg is not something you will find anywhere else. Desserts could be better in terms of selection but the ones they have do the job. Wine is a bit pricey. Overall great local scene. If you want to be truly healthy you can do that too with the macrobiotic plate. The service is great. Our whole party was a bit late in showing up and we kind of ran over the next reservation time, but we never heard a peep from the Maître D. Maybe this is also due to the relaxed clientele."

  • "Food was mediocre. "Sunday Roast" was gross. Kale caesar salad was great. "Fat Radish Plate" was flavorless. Great cocktails and nice wine. Very nice room."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "I ordered the hamburger medium rare. It came to the table medium well and the bun was dry and stale. I'm not too picky but both of those seem pretty fundamental to me in making a good burger. It was a nice atmosphere and a good crowd but I wouldn't rush back. In fairness, it could have been a bad night as my girlfriend said she had been there in the past and it was excellent."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Love the decor, music and ambience. Also like the fact that you never feel rushed. My food was a bit disappointing though - the all greens omelette was really small and pretty tasteless so I wish I had had the all market plate instead. Also shame they dont have an expresso machine. Great restaurant but give proper portions please."
