Diner Reviews
  • "Everyone has experienced a fun night with friends; where your face hurts the next day from smiling over good conversation and plenty of laughs. The second I took my first bite into the cooked carrots, my face beamed as if I had walked into a surprise birthday party of my dreams - all my friends and family in one place, Ryan Gosling shirtless, and a million dollar gift certificate to bergdorfs. Instead it was a couple of extremely well done carrots in my mouth. Who knew?"

  • "Clean fresh food presented so one can actually taste the nuance. Completely free of the embellishments many restaurants are required to infuse when they use less than fresh ingredients."

  • "I've wanted to try the Fat Radish for quite a while, and finally made it there for brunch. It exceeded my expectations; the food was absolutely delicious for brunch and the atmosphere was cozy and welcoming."

  • "The best thing about this little lower-east-side gem is the menu, which features fresh, farm-to-table ingredients in simple but innovative preparations. There was something tempting for everyone in our party, from the vegetarian to the died-in-the-wool meat eater. Nothing seemed perfunctory--the chef is clearly passionate about every dish. And the place was actually less noisy than I thought it would be, considering the decor and proximity of the tables. Very much worth a visit and I'd defend anyone's right to make it a regular hangout."

  • "The only downside to The Fat Radish is that not planning ahead will make it tough to get a table. Consistently brilliant and with a New York crowd. Gotta love it."

  • "Picked this spot for my boyfriend's 30th and it was perfect! Healthier meal options without lacking any creativity or flavor. Given a private corner table, still close to others, but it was still casually romantic. Service was great, waiter had excellent knowledge. Definitely a place id go with a friend or two as well."

  • "I just recently started getting into a raw / paleo / veg heavy / green hybrid diet, and this is just what the doctor ordered. Food was great, Chicken over lentils was fantastic. Service on the other end... our waiter had extremely low energy, didnt check on us often if at all (I had to wave my arm to get his attention even. I would go back for the food, but not the service."

  • "Solid brunch spot, but the service leaves something to be desired. We asked for bread at one point since our food was taking a noticeably long time to arrive, and received a surprise at the end of the meal when there was a charge on our bill for it. If this had been communicated on the menu or even when we asked for a bit of bread, a charge would have been totally fine. When asked about the "toast" charge on our bill, the server rudely said "Sorry" without acknowledging our question of why weren't we told before. Our server ignored our table for most of the meal, except when asking if we wanted change back from the twenties we gave her for the bill. Uh, no, even with good food, we're not leaving you a 40 percent tip for mediocre service."

  • "This was only my second time dining here, and it was just as fantastic as the first. Not only is the food delicious, the atmosphere is delightful. I have absolutely nothing bad to say. We started off with a cocktail, and then shared some of the appetizers. It's a great way of sampling many things. The menu changes slightly seasonally, and the seasonal items we tried this time were the heirloom tomato salad, corn orecchiette, and a cherry crumble. I'd never had a cold crumble before, and it was so much more refreshing this way. Love, love, love this place!"

  • "Food was great as was the service. The pea pot pie appetizer could use some better seasoning. It was quite blend but very fresh. Special cherry desert was amazing!"

  • "The restaurant was spacey enough. People didn't have to be next to each other too close. Not too noisy. There was a big window ceiling which it created a really nice atmosphere in the place. Food was moderate. Nothing too special about it for myself to want to go back soon. The most disappointing part was the coffee. They don't have an espresso machine. So the only options were juices and iced coffee. I can never imagine a brunch place without a coffee machine. Overall, it was average. If I'm around the neighborhood I will dine here again. Only if I'm nearby...:\"

  • "I've been here for brunch a number of times, and it's fantastic. Amazing food, great service. One of these places that you instantly want to come back to so you can try more things of the menu (that you see other people getting). Just note that brunch is cash only."

  • "It was great to be able to make a reservation for 8 people. The table had benches so there wasn't any back support after walking for several hours so it wasn't as comfortable to sit at the table as I would have liked. The menu is beautiful, but other than the pancakes, the portions are tiny. A large man in our party ordered a $16.00. There wasn't even a piece of bread with it. The pea pie was a mixture of peas and pods barely steamed in a watery, bland base (probably water!) without seasoning and topped with puffed pastry dough. The pancakes were delicious and the salmon crostini and potato cake also looked good. Overall, an uncomfortable, expensive experience and not worth the visit."

  • "We went to this presumptuous place to celebrate our first anniversary and the experience was everything but pleasant. Despite having a reservation and being there on time we had to wait 45 min to be seated. During the long waiting, we decided to have some glasses of wine. Once we had a table ready, waitress rudely suggested us to pay in advance. We ordered some bread and awkwardly again we were adverted it was "not complementary" like if we looked like deadbeats. Food was average; nothing to remember except for the "Fat radish," a weird bunch of tasteless boiled veggies arranged like if they had been dropped on the plate from a 3 story building. We were shocked.Pricey, rude and unprofessional service and mediocre food. Avoid at all costs"

  • "Ate at the Fat Radish upon the recommendation of a friend studying at CIA when we recently visited NYC. It was a long ride from the tourist area of the city and in a less scenic area, but worth it. The food was very good and the menu offered something for our friend who is vegetarian as well as for the fried chicken and seafood lovers in our group. The Spring Pea Pot Pie is a must for an appetizer. My two suggestions would be better lighting to see the vibrant colorful vegetables that are the stars of their menu. Also more explanation of the specials and menu from the servers. The specials were on a board that was hard to see from our table and were not described by our slightly aloof server. "

  • "A lovely place for anyone. Definitely a hidden gem in this neighborhood. The interior is unexpectedly bright and picturesque which makes you want to relax there all day. Amazing menu with unique and healthy choices. Reasonably priced. Excellent service -- everyone was smiling all around. My friend and I had an excellent brunch experience here and I will highly recommend this spot to all of our friends."

  • "The scene was very up and lively Great service and it is evident that the owners are there are very hands on making sure everyone is happy with the food and service Dishes leaned toward creative vegetarian and were wonderful but many around us were ordering the bacon cheeseburger ! Will have to try it next time."

  • "All of the food was delicious, atmosphere was cozy, romantic, and hip without trying. The tuna ceviche was very fresh and a perfect summer dish. The Fat Radish plate was perfect -- very filling while not making you feel gross afterwards. Still thinking about the Banana Toffee pie.....probably my favorite spot in NYC."

  • "First of all, the food was all very tasty. The ambient and decor were stylish but homey. Not a place for a big group but is for a few friends' get together to have relaxing and delicious food. I didn't feel rushed at all, but it could be because it was Monday night though the place was rather full for Monday night! I would recommend this place for people looking for a cozy nice restaurant to have a bit trendy evening (but not over-the-top at all) with friends (not good for kids) - I think taking your visitors would probably like this place also :)."

  • "Our reservation was for 6:00pm on a Monday, and out of the entire restaurant, only 2 tables had diners. One was a five in the middle of the room and one with a couple on the side. We were shown to our table which was undoubtedly the worst table in the restaurant, underneath the specials board. It was almost as if you had to crawl over a table to get to it. The hostess seemed genuinely miffed by our request to move tables and sat us right next to the couple!! When we left at 7:30pm the restaurant was only half full with plenty of available tables. The food was delicious, especially the scallops, but I was so put off by the odd experience that it put a damper on what would have been a fabulous evening. "

  • "Came here on a Sunday morning after a friend recommended the place. I went with a friend from out of town who was visiting, and she loved it as well. The decor is nice, the service was good, particularly the bartender, and the food was simple, unpretentious and delicious. I would recommend it for someone looking for a less crowded, delicious brunch."
