    Five Points is a predictably good meal. It's not the most exciting place in the city, but it is a great standby. The potato pizza is fabulous. Great cocktails as well.

    Loud, but fun. Best brink: The Honey Crisp, which tasted a bit like bourbon infused apple pie. Oysters great. Service is very knowledgable. Best bourbon list in town.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/18/2012
    The smoked salmon eggs benedict had a twinge of ammonia smell/taste to the salmon which was shockingly unpleasant, but the eggs and biscuit as part of the dish was fine. The place was packed on a Sunday brunch at noon, very loud and tables in rows definitely made me feel like I was being slotted into a cafeteria. The main dining room in general has a pretty unappealing atmosphere, tables and chairs packed in to a low lit-room that on a sunny bright day seemed more gloomy and claustraphobic. Our table of 4 was smushed into a corner with two our backs hard against the wall and no where to move. One mixed cocktail came to the table and the pitcher of bloody marys for the 3 of us came a good 20 minutes later. That was really bad and awkwar

    Okay food, served in an open and airy dining room that's incredibly noisy. Definitely a brunch place, with signature egg dishes served in cast iron skillets. Forgettable service. Passable food.

    Five Points has a great way of turning simple delicious breakfast food into a gourmet experience. The upgraded french toast (chocolate french toast!) and the rich pancakes (lemon ricotta pancakes) were delicious and the atmosphere was wonderful. Would be a great place for a breakfast date or a small family brunch, quiet but hip.

    Had a brunch here, and found it unremarkable. Food took forever, ie well over an hour, we couldn't track down our waitress to track down our food, and tables arond us were getting served. It also seemed tat the food had been kept hot in the kitchen for a while. Very disappointing. I did like the space though.

    Came here twice, both for brunch. It's near NYU which is a fun, vibrant and lively neighborhood. They do offer outdoor seating however both times we were seated indoors. The restaurant space itself is lovely - big space with an extended seating area in the back with high ceilings and a beautiful centerpiece. The one annouying thing about the restaurant is they won't seat you unless your entire party arrives, which can be annouying if one person is running rather behind. All that said, the food portion here is pretty massive so worth the slightly higher than avg price! They also serve really delicious bloody mary's! I'm not a huge brunch person, but from the ones I've been to, this place def serves one of the better bloody mary's!

    Everything about this meal was spot on! Service was fantastic with incredible knowledge about all the menu items, specialty craft beers and wine. It's one of those meals that you have that you just keep talking about. Do yourself a favor and save room for dessert. The Gimme Samoa Cake is perfect for splitting and comes with an incredible buttermilk gelatto.

    Great food, great service, and we are very particular. We would gladly return. Be careful what time you go, we found it a bit on the noisy side for a romantic dinner for 2. Would be best with a group given its popularity, try going early or late. If energetic is your thing, then go any time. The food was out of this world.

    Another over-rated brunch place in NYC. Who pays $$$$ for Churros when you can tastier, more affordable, and truly authentic Churros in Los Angeles for a tenth of the price? Otherwise, just the standard fare you could make at home with a little effort and work.

    This was one of the first places I ate at in NYC and I've been coming here for years. The menu is always fresh and seasonal and the ambiance is very relaxed. I've been for group birthdays, with family friends and on date nights. This is a rare place that is actually good for all of these occassions. See you again very soon

    Whenever we return home to New York City we try to make it back to Five Points for brunch. Still one of the best in the city. Long waits (even with reservations sometimes) are made up for with a good bar area to wait, not to mention the payoff at the end with the good food in a pleasant--albeit loud--setting.

    The lemon ricotta pancakes are to die for! Probably the best pancakes I've ever eaten. Unfortunately my boyfriend ordered them and not me, so I could only snatch a few bites from him here and there. Also dining in the restaurant was Arnold Myint from Top Chef Season 7, so you know the food must be good! The restaurant was very crowded for Sunday brunch, which is probably to be expected. The only downside was that a dining companion had asked how the eggs in her dish were prepared, and requested that they not be runny. She didn't get what she asked for, nor were the eggs any more well cooked when they came out the second time. She ordered something else and the restaurant did not charge us for the egg dish.

    By far one of my favorite eatery's in the city. Always fresh and cutting edge. A classic ambiance with the romance of the open kitchen, skylight, plants & the water that flows through the center of the main dining room. The menu is always changing and always perfect. The price is reasonable and the service is warm and friendly. FIVE STARS.

    I always enjoy meals at Five Points. The food is well executed and flavorful without being pretentious. At brunch, I recommend the eggs rancheros, the pork fennel sausage, and tha mac and cheese. The "Morning Refresher" non-alcoholic citrus punch is also fantastic.
