Commerce is a contemporary American restaurant with menu items that have been influenced by Asian, French and Italian dishes. Take in a relaxing atmosphere of black walnut tables, chestnut booths and large murals as you relax with friends for drinks or dinner. Enjoy entrées, such as the classic American cheeseburger, roasted sweet potato tortelloni with hazelnuts or shakshuka which are eggs baked with melted peppers, onions and tomato. Commerce offers an extensive and world-wide wine list to choose from. Reservations are not required but can be made online or by calling ahead. Catering from Commerce is also available upon request and they take reservations for private parties on location.
I'm here about once a month and I'm never disappointed. Very solid American food and a good wine list with a reasonable range.
The Avocado toast was delicious. Highly recommend. My friends for eggs and a English muffin and it looked pretty pathetic. Not worth the money.
Food was exceptional but the noise level made conversation challenging. I would go again but would choose the occasion and certainly not with someone that is hard of hearing.
Located just off the beaten path, Commerce is a great restaurant that delivers top quality dishes in a sophisticated yet comfortable setting. The deviled egg appetizer was creamy and full of flavor. The short rib ravioli was outstanding. Rich flavor and excellent fresh pasta. For dessert, I would recommend the coconut cream cake. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. I recommend this restaurant to everyone
Loved the fried oysters and the mango/tomato/feta salad. I'm from beef country, so a steak must be really good to impress me. The steak Diane was superb...melt in your mouth tender and fabulous sauce. You must order the coconut cake!!
first time at this restaurant special chicken and sides delicious drink s very good same with service and atmosphere
commerce is one of those restaurants where the experience continually represents a great dinning experience. Chef Moore is creative and his food reflects the best of well prepared American Cuisine.
I went to Commerce last weekend for my birthday, after having come across it during many aimless wanderings through Greenwich Village. I'd been intrigued by this historic building on a cobblestone street, especially the fact that it used to be a speakeasy.
We arrived a little early but were seated right away, receiving extremely attentive service from our waiter and the sommelier. We had the burrata appetizer with snap peas, mint, and chili - delicious! My only "complaint" was that I wished it were twice as large. For the main course I had the spaghetti carbonara with pepper and coddled egg yolk - the pasta was great and while the dish was rich (I took half home) it was delicious. My boyfriend had the salmon with spring vegetables, and while the dish was a little too subtle for his liking the fish was cooked perfectly.
For dessert we tried the "famous" coconut cake (literally, there's an article about it in the entryway) and it was lovely - and huge! The third serving is still in my freezer.
In terms of ambiance, the reviews I read didn't lie - the acoustics are not great and it's LOUD! However, the boisterous and eclectic crowd mixed with the deco/art nouveau decor is classic old New York. Overall, a great meal and experience!
We had a dinner reservation and part of our group was late due to subway issues. The staff were beyond friendly to us. We were seated, offered drinks and appetizers, and were never rushed even though our party had not yet arrived.
When our guests arrived, we enjoyed an excellent meal and what really is the best coconut cake around.
*Long wait even with a reservation
*Food and service wonderful!
