    We dine here 2-3x week. Our favorite neighborhood gem for years. Great for an early dinner with kids. Great for brunch/lunch/dinner with friends. Food is consistently delicious with great daily specials to mix it up. Staff and service are beyond friendly and amazing. Great ambiance. Always packed....in a good way. Highly recommend.

    What an amazing introduction to the restaurant scene in New York. Stunning Art Deco decor with just the right lighting. Sensational service both at the bar and at the table. The food was to die for. Elegant flavours paired together in such a complimentary way and so so delicious. A truly amazing all round experience.

    Had brunch there the other Sunday and was told by my friends that they were looking forward to going again as they hadn't been back for many years. I had never been. We all had a great time......the service was truly outstanding and the food was terrific. We lingered longer than the proprietors would have liked but no one made us feel uncomfortable. I would definitely go back next time we travel to NY.

    I've been to the Odeon in the past and had decent meals but I was really disappointed this time. I had the vegetarian cassoulet and it was barely edible - the beans were undercooked, it was too salty and topped with a heavy layer of (guaranteed to get stuck in your teeth) dried parsley. My husband had the pork special - and it was just OK, really nothing special about it. Our out of town guest had salmon that (thankfully) looked good, I just hope it tasted good as well. Def not going out of my way to return,

    The Odeon never disappoints. It's been my go-to place for 25 years, with very good food and a great vibe. It's perfect for dinner with friends or a date, a civilized brunch, or a leisurely late lunch or early dinner solo at the bar with an art magazine or the NYT from the proffered selection of reading material. The dinner menu has one of the best roast chickens around (a succulent, crisp-skinned roast chicken is harder to find in this city than you might think!), a terrific hanger steak and a nice selection of well-prepared and interestingly accompanied fish (although the fish portions can sometimes be small). Homemade ice cream is a highlight of the dessert menu. Omelettes and lemon ricotta pancakes make brunch worth waking up for.

    We hadn't been to Odeon in quite some time but were pleasently surprised to find the ambiance, food and waitstaff just as we remembered it. As one of the early Keith McNally iterations in the city, it still has it's edge although the neighborhood and to some degree the clientele have changed greatly over the years. The food remains upscale bistro fare that is done exceptionally well. The hanger steak and the mushroom pie were executed perfectly at lunch. The wine list offers some interesting selections but you will be hard pressed to find bottles under $45-$50. The staff is engaging and eager to please but not intrusive. We'll be sure to visit more often in the future.

    A bunch of friends were gathering for a night out on the town. We wanted to start with dinner downtown and returned to the Odeon, one of our favorite spots. I love the staff, the service is excellent, and the food is delicious. I highly recommend to anyone looking to have fun downtown. Also, if you call or book in advance, they can accommodate parties of 6 or 8. I love the round table in the rear, near the windows.

    Odeon far and away exceeded my expectations. I had this on my watch list for awhile for a place to go with my dad, but never bit the bullet because nothing on the menu really stood out for me. I finally decided to go and I'm sure glad I did. I ended up getting two specials--the special salad which was crab and shrimp with hearts of palm and grapefruit, and the duck entree with peaches. Both were really delicious. I love peaches and was thrilled to see this on the menu. The duck was juicy and tasty. Yum! My dad got a salad and the chicken and he really enjoyed his too. For dessert, we split the donuts which were out of this world. I loved the maple and raspberry sauces. They are even better than the donuts at Flex Mussels.

    We ate there for a casual early bird dinner and the food was really delicious, from appetizer to desert. They know what they are doing. It's a little bit on the pricey side after 6:30 but it's worth every penny. The restaurant itself is very cute and old school and reminded me of a typical French restaurant. Do not hesitate to go there as I am sure you will be very pleased. Service was great and very professional.

    Great food! Started w/ Island Creek oysters (superb). My wife had Edenbrook trout; I had halibut. Both were excellent. Only disappointment was the 3 scoops of coffee ice creak we shared for dessert - we told our waiter it tasted like ice milk. Otherwise, everything was great.

    Returning to Odeon after a 25 year hiatus from NY was so grounding. Paris mets NY The fabulous ambience, great warmhearted service and delicious food is a reminder that some thing don't change! I had a breakfast there, and enjoyed the omelet and the donuts immensely. The sour dough wheat toast is transcendental.

    Been here several times and it's always a scene. The food is very good, in particular the croque monsieur as well as the Burger with melted Gruyere. Delicious and cooked perfectly. Definitely an underrated burger in all of Manhattan. We came on a Tuesday night and it was packed so the place still gets quite busy like its heyday back in the 80's. I will continue to visit every few months to get my fix.

    Odeon was recommended to me by a friend that knows good restaurants. He recommended Commerce, I countered with Il Buco; he came back with Odeon. Odeon did not reach that lofty level. I would say it was more similar to DBGB (but not as fun). The food was good but not memorable. My grown children were asked to produce ID before being served wine (which made the dinner a bit like a traffic stop). Odeon is a pretty good restaurant but I just don't feel motivated to go back based on my experience there.

    The Odeon stays our "go to" place for that change of pace meal. They've maintained high quality standards with a sense of fun and a comfortable, convivial environment. The Pork Chop Milanese was a delight - perfectly pounded, breaded and topped with a delightful tomato and artichoke salad. Whatever the stresses of the world threw at us, a meal here is always the antidote.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 7/19/2014
    The waitress was new and didn't know the answers to our questions so she brought over a seasoned waiter to help take our order. That was nice so as to avoid confusion. I did ask for a coffee and they forgot it and brought the two tables next to us cappuccinos (which I would think take longer to make); and those tables were seated well after we sat down. Besides this snafu, the service was generally good and the food was tasty. They do charge $13 for basically just greens with some goat cheese on top - so a bit excessive price for not much. The outdoor dining experience was pleasant and we had a nice time. We stayed well beyond paying our check to celebrate our mom's bday and give her gifts, and no one pressured us to leave. Nice time. :)
