Overall, was pleased with the experience. The food was good though the portions were sooooo small (and prices were high), it was disappointing and we were still hungry after the meal!
Such an incredible menu, everything is always fresh and delicious. It's definitely a slower service over lunch and not as many people around. Nevertheless the food was still delicious! Love the razor clams.
Consistently excellent and fun.
This is my first time for lunch here. Service was beyond slow and the food was mediocre at best for the expensive price tag. I prefer my other options in the area such as Hundred Acres.
İt was decent. But waiters with attitude be carefull
The food was unique and excellent. Portions were a little on the small side. I had a lovely glass of wine and the service was perfect.
The food and outdoor seating was great. The burrata and cucumbers was not what I expected. The service was very slow. Greeted probably over 10 minutes after we sat. Had to ask for our wine to be refilled since it was on ice. For the level of food that is being served I thought the experience would be more cohesive, especially if the table is at over $100 a head at brunch.
Our dinner at Charlie Bird was fantastic. From the hostess, bartender and waitress, the service was friendly and hospitable. The food at Charlie Bird was amazing! Some of the best I've had in NYC and I'm a foodie. It's unique, light and clean yet very flavorful. The chicken and sea bream were both delicious as were all the small plates and sides. The music was eclectic which gave the restaurant a more modern feel. It was perfect to come with family but would also work well with friends or on a date. Thanks for a great experience, will be back soon!
Farro salad was amazing. Outdoor dining was perfect.
been multiple times, brought my boss this time, pasta was subpar at best, must be a new pasta cook, pasta maker, the gnocchi were not ones i am use to and i left embarrassed
Had an edge to him. Spoke to his counter parts about how he used to "beat up NYU kids". Made fun of other guests. Me and my husband always sit at the bar for our date night every week and have to say we never experienced such a rude, non-servicing bartender. He needs a new career. Would never go to this restaurant because of him. Which is sad because we loved our food!
Service was phenomenal as always, but the food wasn't as good as the first times I had come. I thought the focaccia was phenomenal, octopus was undercooked, gnocchi was good but lacking in flavor, and Nero fussili which usually is to die for was hard and unappetizing- like it had been reheated, the wine was amazing and the chocolate desert with Rice Krispies was heavenly, but with that many good restaurants in NYC I won't be going out of my way next time to come back. I was sorely disappointed. I hope they haven't gotten used to their popularity and hence lowered the quality of the food.
Been here 3 times now and no complaints each time. Food is good. Service solid. Very cool setting. Dependable place to go
I've made it an point to eat there when I am in New York. Loved the menu ambience and prices. This time was just ok. None of the dishes blew me away, service was just ok and they have increased their prices.
Had the most fabulous meal and wine this past weekend. Everything was incredibly delicious. I don't know how we missed this place. It's been open for 2 years. I will go back and back and have told EVERYONE i could think of how amazing the food truly is.
