8 North Broadway Ratings and Reviews
Let me start by saying the food was great. Service was very slow. We had to go up to the host to ask where our waiter was. The biggest complaint we had was in this restaurant that has a full bar menu they had no martini glasses. They served the martinis in champagne glasses. Very disappointing. What would it take to invest in a few martini glasses??
Warm greeting as we entered. Waitress a bit slow to warm up. Buster very attentive. Food was rather high priced for what you got. Tuna tartar was the exception. Large portion. Very tasty. Signature octopus dish had odd flavor. Local beers also disappointing.
Limited menu selection.
One thing I ordered I was disappointed in. Flatbread mushroom. Had little flavor and the mushrooms seemed to have come from a can not fresh.
Grilled octopus was very good.
Thee atmosphere was lovely a nice place for romantic dinner.
Went with another couple for a Saturday night dinner. The menu was creative and atmosphere was cozy and fun/energetic. Food was good overall, and the branzino with vegetables was a standout. Service was fine, although there were a couple of glitches with our drink orders. Would come back except for the abysmal parking situation (obviously not the restaurant's fault)!
i am sorry to say we were very disappointed we have eaten here several times. it took 20 minutes for our cocktails to arrive and when i ordered a second drink it took another 20 minutes. i told the waitress to not bring it or not charge me for it at that point. i was charged for it. easy to make people happy . there were 2 bartenders . when we arrived the restaurant was not full yet. really no excuse. you have lost us for awhile.
My husband and I same here for Hudson Valley Restaurant Week. I was looking forward to trying a restaurant I’d never been to previously. The HVRW dinners are the same price; no matter where you go. I understand that restaurants don’t want to lose their shirts during this time; but it’s up to them to find a creative way to prepare meals people will enjoy within the budget they are committed to.
I had the oysters on the half shell for my appetizer and bronzino for my main course. My oysters were flavorful but the tiniest oysters I’ve ever eaten. My bronzino was also prepared very well. The fillet was small but the vegetables underneath were even more sparse. Thank goodness our meal came with pieces of toasted pita and flavored olive oil to dip into. We also had a dish of carmelized cauliflower which was comped because it arrived after we’d started our mains. That was a very kind thing to do. We would have been very hungry without the pita and cauliflower additions.
Dessert was chocolate pot de creme which was delicious.
I’m sorry to say that we didn’t feel we’d gotten our money’s worth even at the HRVW price.
We had dinner during Hudson Valley Restaurant Week. My wife had a generous appetizer of six oysters on the half shell and I enjoyed a platter of assorted dips and spreads. We each had the grilled octopus main course. All of the food was delicious and well presented.
The food was very good. The warm pita bread that was served initially with olive oil was tasty. My wife and I shared bronzino and salmon. We were seated promptly. The place is casual. It was a bit noisy at first, since it was crowded when we arrived at 7:30 on a Saturday night.
We were made welcome the second we walked in the door. Service was attentive without being hovering. Food is locally sourced and just plain delicious.
The potato and sheep cheese croquettes were exquisite. The braised brisket with pasta is not something you normally see, but was well seasoned and an ample portion.
Oh, and the Spanish Manhattan was one of the best mixed drinks I have ever consumed. It's a shame I don't live within walking distance - or maybe that's a good thing.
The best thing I can say is I look forward to returning.
Service and wine were good. Food was inconsistent. The kale salad and parsnip puree soup were excellent. However, the veal chop and Halibut were overcooked, the fish so much so it was uneatable and tasteless. Too bad because the atmosphere, service and wine list were good. Several of the dishes were gluten-free and didn't require alteration...a positive for those of us who have Celiac Disease.
This was a dreadful experience. We had a reservation for four, two couples getting together meeting in Nyack, on a delightful, sunny Sunday afternoon. The first red flag was that, when my wife and I arrived a few minutes early, there was all of one table filled, in a dark cavernous space, this after passing mobbed tables outside and inside up and down Main St. 8 North was dark inside, dead, and it soon became apparent why. As the two diners at that one table exited, I asked about their food, aside from the copious Bloody Mary remnants: "meh!" was the reply. The four of us debated and agreed to stay the course. Bad move.
The so-called ceviche (touted as mussels (?), shrimp, and scallops) two of us ordered was a sad mosh of mostly tasteless mussels, wilted greens, and a forgettable vinaigrette (no citrus detected, not obligatory, but helpful), zero vibrancy of flavor, almost none in fact. My feta and tomato salad was a soup bowl full of grape tomatoes, sliced in half, with the now familiar drenched, wilted greens, some carrot and cucumber slices, and three, count them, sugar cube sized "chunks" of feta, in another utterly forgettable and drab dressing. My wife's crudo of the day, diver scallops, elicited no huzzahs from her, and she is quick to praise. Our friends' oysters (PEI), drew no comment either. My buddy had a meze plate (mixed tzadziki, melitzanosalata, taramosalata, etc.), which seemed ok. Even the pita (we had to ask to replenish), came out stale and mostly cold. The servers were willing and friendly, even if one dropped a bottle of beer as it was being served, and the much needed second round of Bloody Marys came out ever so slowly. As for the BMs, watery and spicy.
During our 90 minutes there, all of one other table came to be occupied. Evidently, word is out locally. In part this could be explained by the bright sunny outside contrasted with the gloom inside. Maybe this was a sad off-Sunday for 8 North, but I wouldn't want to bet on it.
