8 North Broadway Ratings and Reviews
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.
I went to 8 North Broadway with an open mind to meet a friend for Dinner.I found the hostesses and wait staff personable and very friendly.We were seated without a problem but I found the overall service very lacking even when the place did not seem to be busy.The food was just okay and for their prices I can honestly say that I would never go back.
Creative menu, attentive service, fair price, fabulous meal. Will definitely return. However, the ambiance of the place was confusing. It felt like I was experiencing fine dining in a pub-like setting. A simple tablecloth would have made a huge difference to make the restaurant feel as upscale as the rest of the experience.
