Service was great! Thought maybe there could've been more of a fish selection. Overall nice dinner menu and great ambiance!!
Excellent service by knowledgeable wait staff. Food was great. Menu was a bit limited. Few people in the restaurant. Nice space, well appointed, spacious. Pricey.
This is a great happy hour spot, with great wines and raw bar. The lunches are a bit pricy, but good service and location.
We dined on a weekend night and the restaurant was nearly empty, which was nice; unfortunately, the food was mediocre in contrast to the very good service.
I come for the curried mussels and stay for the trumpet mushrooms and the Sticky Toffee pudding! The staff are friendly and efficient; great food selection (have I mentioned the curried mussels?!). The new drapes in the dining area make a big difference (felt a little too open prior). The owner is almost invariably there and is very hands on. Love Almond!
Solid place for brunch. We went relatively early, 11:30 AM and there were 3 tables so no wait with our reservation. Good food and service, but nothing special. Would return since I live in the area, but probably wouldn't travel far to go here.
I've from out it town and have been here twice now to this location and the one in Flatiron. Both times I left having really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. I'm not one for the latest trend or hot spot. Food is number 1 above all and they deliver here. There was a good amount of happy hour finance guys in early evening that crowded the bar area, but beyond that I'd go again.
The small portion entrees are quite enough; wish our server had guided us better as we over ordered and could not do dessert. Loved the cauliflower app and the short ribs. Nice space without the crush of tables you find in many NYC restaurants.
Everything was wonderful, from the service and friendly staff, to the delicious food, to the vibrant atmosphere. My husband and I shared the soft shell crab appetizer, which was amazing. For dinner I had grilled cod over greens, again delicious, and my husband raved about the duck dish he had. For dessert we shared the toffee fig cake, which was one of the most delicious desserts we've ever had. The owner came by to talk to us, very friendly and welcoming. We will definitely go back to Almond Tribeca, and we also want to try Almond Flatiron.
Great food, great service, in a nice space. I would have given it a 5 for atmosphere, but it was too loud.
I came here with my family for Mother's Day and loved it! The food was so good, and the staff was nice as well.
Almost saddens me to write this review as my first experience at Almond dining with family was really good sadly this past time was really atrocious. Waited for >30 min to be seated even with a reservation and they weren't busy, water glasses remained empty even after asking, appetizer of short rib while tasting okay was a sloppy mess. Entree was totally lackluster, not even a follow up from the waitress. Maybe their raw bar is still okay as I skipped it tho I won't be returning to find out.
Mussels were delicious! As was the Brussels sprout appetizer salad. Nice set up and plenty of room if looking for a group spot!
Great food. Lovely addition to the neighborhood
The spicy cauliflower, the brussels sprouts, the beet salad, the mac and cheese, DELICIOUS. All of it. They even conceded to putting the prociutto on the side, even though it came with the mac and cheese. Service was a bit slow, but it was fine since it was an intimate 3-lady Saturday night gathering.
Menu changes on a regular basis but a few of the basic staples remain constant. Steak au poivre is always excellent, great fries, and other rotating items are always fresh, local and/or seasonal and interesting. Service is good. It's not cheap but it's fair and you get what you pay for. I think it's one of the best restaurants in the neighborhood.
Second time eating there. Food is done well but we got deserted by our waitstaff as the evening wore on. I would love it to be a neighborhood gem but I think it's overpriced for the most part. I think because they are in Tribeca (and the Hamptons), they think they can charge more for similar entrees in other restaurants.
Antonio (Owner) and the Servers were so attentive, professional and charming. The ambiance and decor were very nice too and Happy Hour was lively. My daughter and I had a wonderful time. The food was fabulous and well priced.
Lot's of good food options on the menu. Had the scallops although the lardons were very over cooked and dried out. Brussel sprout caesar was quite good. Friend enjoyed her steamed mussels though thought the broth was a bit bland. Good wine by the glass. Great waiter service but big lag time between salads and entree. Will give another try.
Salty food. Left me scraping my tongue
Food wasn't great. The special that day was fish and chips and it was greasy.
A simple bistro menu but the food was excellent and moderately priced
Beautiful and comfortable environment with friendly waitstaff and delicious food. We ate family style, sharing several dishes so we could taste multiple things. Stand outs were the Saturday special shrimp scampi, truffle Mac and cheese, and Brussels sprouts two-ways.
Having been to Almond in Flatiron a couple of times, I was looking forward to the same but closer to home. The menu seemed a bit small, not a lot of options (granted, I'm pescatarian AND pregnant). The ambiance though was great - decor was cute, space was large, and I could see myself coming back to sit at the bar (or the raw bar) for apps and drinks. Maybe it just needs a little time, but on a Saturday night it was very empty.
It was great! Went there to spend some quality time with family. We had a great time there. The service was great.. We had a really good table too. The food was amazing and it was fairly priced. Everyone at the table was incredibly impressed. Would definitely come back.
I've been to Almond twice, and both times the food was sublime, the service attentive yet not smothering and the ambiance just the right mix of chic and welcoming.
Great food and good service. The Fluke Crudo and Lamb "Brisket" we're both superb.
There at 11 am opening for "brunch". Breakfast menu items all excellent but service was slow and generally inattentive. Decaf coffee was cold when brought to table, and server never came by to refresh our cups unless we flagged him down and asked. Their complimentary biscuits , which are delicious, were also slow to appear and no hot and fresh ones ever appeared as they had the prior time we were there.
Especially good was the unusual New England Clam Chowder, served from a hot pitcher, and the Brussel Sprout Caesar Salad. Eric L., the owner was present and his attention to detail is exceptional. We will definitely be back with friends.
My boyfriend and I made a reservation for six and we arrived early, they sat us right away. Our waiter was kind and helpful, the bus boy was also very sweet. The owner came by and said hello as well which was nice. The food was amazing. Such a great night I would highly recommend it for a date with your honey ;)
Almond hit all the right taste points and every dish was generously proportioned. This would be a great place for groups as the layout is spacious and noise level is not too loud, but enough of a low bustle to create a nice atmosphere. Waiters were friendly (maybe a little too much so). I would definitely come back. Prices were not outrageous, just right for a special occasion without being over the top. I would be interested in trying Brunch here!
we felt so lucky to land a corner table....and then the service began.....lovely. great drinks followed by a wonderful meal. Solid wine list. a wonderful evening thanks to the great service provided at Almond - even better than Almond Bridgehampton because the service was even better. thanks for a wonderful night.
The food was good & the variety was really nice within a relatively limited menu. Great space. But the restaurant was 70% empty on a Sunday early-evening and it took absurdly long to get drinks, then our food. We were dining with kids - and still the pace was deadly slow. Everyone was nice but maybe ...absent minded?? Not sure. Definitely not inexpensive a la most "neighborhood" restaurant style ...but really good. Probably try again.
We had more of a late - 11 am - breakfast rather than brunch, and this place was just perfect for that. The menu fits that goal, with only a few non-traditionakl breakfast items. Biscuits (like Olive Garden breadsticks) were plentiful, refilled, and absolutely delicious. Modest prices for NY spot.
It was my first time, but I will definitely be back! I had the duck. My friend had the lamb brisket. We split oysters and an apple cake. We were stuffed! The presentation was beautiful and the portions were large. The flavors were delicious. We enjoyed the house wines, too.
The dining room had a relaxing, vintage library feel. Upscale but not pretentious. The music was good. I was very comfortable having a drink while waiting for my husband to join me. The service was great. I was able to try a few wines and found the wine list to be filled with good choices. The mussels, steak frites with chimichurri, and seasonally prepared scallops were all very good. The location is convenient to the financial district. We will definitely be back.
Delicious food, great host, beautiful place... highly recommend it ! A must !
The host and our waitress were attentive, fun, polite and accommodating. The food wasn't crazy unique, but was comforting and expertly cooked. Specifically the oysters to start, the steak frites (very fairly priced with a mountain of freshly cooked fries) and the scallops (seared but still rare inside with a squash puree that brought out the sweetness in the bivalves). The wine list is nothing to write home about but it has a few wines by the glass that are affordable and quaffable, so no serious complaints there. Great neighborhood spot!
The food did not taste farm fresh but supermarket quality and if not for the overwhelming salt flavor in all dishes there was little flavor , the highly touted pork chop was very bland and disappointing. Despite many empty tables on a Saturday night the service was still very slow and inattentive. Each course was delivered without one included food item that made us find the waiter or other server to bring. Never asked about food , overall satisfaction etc. cannot recommend any one go here.
Having been given the incorrect address (168 instead of 186 Franklin St.), it seemed we were off to a poor start. But the error was soon corrected and the reward was delightful. We were redeeming a Blackboard Eats and the hostess and server were more than happy to accommodate. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable, offering worthy suggestions. Our meals were perfectly prepared and served promptly. The duck ravioli was delicious. We enjoyed the entire experience, and plan to return soon. This is a "2 thumbs up"!
