A word from Tiny's & the Bar Upstairs
Tiny's & the Bar Upstairs is a three story townhouse located on W. Broadway in the heart of Tribeca. The building dates to 1810 and much of the original materials have been restored and overlayed with whimsical American finish detail. Siblings Matt, Jack and Ana Abramcyk conceived of a space where you can come to eat, drink, or just talk over a glass of wine. The sibling trio complements the warm-hearted atmosphere and furthers the artistic spirit of Tiny’s making it a true family run neighborhood place. For Tiny’s, Chef Paul Nanez has created lunch, brunch, and dinner menus that blend classic technique with local market ingredients. The menu reflects Modern American cuisine with Italian and French influences.

    If you like to 'discover' a place, this is one to discover. Not sure if they take reservations for the fireplace area, but it is s gem, like going into a warm library of a friend's home. Share a few things, but do not miss the meatballs. Yes, meatballs. You will love them if you like a flavorful red sauce. On the other hand the kale salad is a treat. IT is really a "Waldorf" salad of sorts, with apples and other treats to sparkle the palate.

    What a great find! Literally tiny and intimate, with a cozy vibe, candlelight, and fireplace crackling. Great selection of food and very attentive, enthusiastic staff who were great at answering our questions and giving suggestions. Inventive cocktails and all of the dishes we ordered were tasty - approachable and comforting without being run of the mill. The group was raving afterward! We will be back!

    The restaurant is adorable and great for a 'date night.' We were seated in the back by the fireplace and it is like dining in someone's home. Food wasn't as good as the last time I ate here. I had the kale salad which was terrific and the arctic char which was just okay - a bit overcooked. The duck was a highlight and I would pass on the fig & proscuitto beignets.

    Our experience would have been better if the hostess wasn't so rude to my friend. We were 6 minutes, she was on time and in those 6 minutes the hostess told her 3 times the table was being given away... Which is must have been, we ended up getting seated in the front room! Squished in. Such a bummer! We were so excited to make Tiny's a regular spot as we Fly60 saturdays at Tribeca FW. Must be said though, a bright spot was, the server was very good! Great recommendations, and attentive to our cocktails.

    My friend thought her turkey chili was exceptional -- lighter and fresher than usual, really more ahearty soup than a thick stew. My greek salad with chicken was filled with goodies, all of which went just very well with one another, and the chicken in it was also fresh and tasty. The back room at lucnh is darker than the usual lunch spot. Once I could read the menu, I enjoyed the relaxing atomosphere.

    Great restaurant with friendly staff! Quite east to find. We reserved a table in advance, smart choice as it soon became full. The restaurant is really small (tiny) but very cosy and romantic. The food is exellent. Both starters and main. I had the duck duo, perhaps one of the best meal I ever had. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant! Not for big groups but for couples or smaller parties.

    The place lives up to its name -- tiny. Very cozy, small tables, but quite charming. (The back room would be particularly appealing in winter.) A bit on the noisy side (at least in the back room). The food was very good -- everyone in our party enjoyed their respective dishes with particularly high marks for the burrata special appetizer, the steak, and the scallops. Service was very attentive and friendly. Our waiter had a good knowledge of the wine list, in particular, even though we didn't take the most advantage of his wisdom.

    Nourriture très bonne, le poulet grillé était excellent ainsi que le dessert. Le prix du restaurant correspond aux prix habituels à NYC pour un bon resto (env $27-$30 le plat) Un peu bruyant mais bonne ambiance Peut-être un peu trop de passage de serveurs mais je n'ai pas de point de comparaison avec d'autres resto à New York

    Small menu but excellent choices and very good. Service is attentive and helpful. We are upstairs and our only complaint was the noise. It was very noisy and loud, two tables of what looked like girls' night out. We should have asked to sit downstairs or outside because we couldn't carry on a conversation. Luckily the food and service outweighed the noise.

    1) Tiny's ran out of ingredients for all but two of the cocktails on their menu. We were told they were changing the drink menu in a few days and didn't update the old menu or offer alternate selections. 2) Our server forgot 2 of our items...came back to ask about one but entirely forgot the side item which ended up coming out after our meal was finished. The simple solution is to write it down. I am not impressed by servers who try to memorize orders. Inevitably something is forgotten making the entire meal stressful. Before the meal we are wondering if they remembered everything...and during the meal we are waiting for them to correct it. I would absolutely visit Tiny's again. Hopefully next time these 2 minor issues will be resolved.

    Grabbed lunch with a coworker here since I had walked by this place many nights and always saw folks hanging out here. The food was good, certainly better than average, but nothing special or notable. From the menu we were expecting it to be a bit more of a foodie restaurant. The service was fine as well, though the table was quite small and our particular seating situation was a bit odd being in a corner where two booths came together so we sat perpendicular to each other. Overall, fairly neutral experience and given the number of great places to eat in the area, wouldn't really recommend or go back.

    Cool building, so much history. Great staff was attentive & efficient. No quirky preps. Starters were CHILLED ENGLISH PEA SOUP - crème fraiche and lemon zest - fresh and light, maybe needed some salt or spice; SMOKED SALMON RILLETTE - crisps, shallots, dill - a nice drip that was smokey & salty; KALE SALAD - Walnuts, Local Apples, Maple-Mustard, Vinaigrette Carrots, shredded gouda - a large portion and light. Entrées: Duck duo - Smoked Breast & Leg of Confit, Haricots Verts, Toasted Almonds, Hon Shimeji Mushrooms, Natural Jus - cooked very well and savory; GRILLED HANGER STEAK - Creamed Swiss Chard, Crunchy Potatoes, Blue Cheese Butter - the potatoes were so crunchy and seem double fried; no catsup/salt needed, meat perfect medium rare.

    Had a good/very good dinner here. We started off with the burrata cheese and the kale salad. The cheese was very good, the salad was excellent. Main courses were the lamb chops and the scallops. The chops were slightly over done and small. The scallops were more bay scallops than sea scallops. Not bad...but they need to up the ante slightly by getting a better grade of scallop. One note about this place. Very nice, small dining area in the back. In the winter it must be very nice with the fireplace roaring. The only issue (which they can not resolve due to architecture), it gets very noisy. The tables are very close to one another...you will definitely hear all that is happening around you. I will probably return again.
