Came here with three others for dinner after a Broadway show-it was a trek but worth it to not stay in Times Square. I'd been meaning to try it for a while because I had my wedding desserts catered by Kafana but had not eaten at the restaurant. The food is incredible! To me it's comfort food as these are the dishes my mom and grandmother used to make. In my opinion, the kobasice is a must! Also try the gibanica and cevapi...and don't forget dessert. I was also pleasantly surprised by the bottle of Serbian red wine we shared. I don't think I've tried Serbian wine before but this was really good-they have a large selection and I wish I remembered what we ordered. More

We went pre theatre. We let our server know our timing and she made sure we were served quickly but also not too rushed. The kids loved cooking their own meat, fish and s'mores on the BBQ. There were also some good appetizers and one of our group had a noodle bowl. Check out he menu is is worth a look. It is very well located if you are going to see The Blue Man Group or Stomp. I am sure there are other theaters close by as well. Lastly, good vibe as well as good food. More

Oda House is incredible and delicious! This is one of our favorite places in the city. I sought out a Georgian restaurant after enjoying the food in the country itself and while living in Istanbul. Oda House does not disappoint. Make sure you get the khinkali (dumplings) and khatchapuri, preferably the one with the egg. And don't miss trying Georgian wine! Our most recent visit was with my parents who were visiting from California. Though not always the most adventurous eaters, by the end of the meal they were completely enthralled. My dad was talking about the food and the experience with a friend that night! One of the best places in New York City! More

The Grilled Halloume Cheese tasted great but it said the cheese would be served sizzling hot and it was just warm. Should have been hotter but I would still order again. The Makanek (beef sausages) were good but I would try another dish next time. Finally, we shared the Mixed Grill plate, which was very good. The chicken and beef were especially delicious. All the waitresses and waiters were helpful and lovely and they do not rush you out. I will absolutely return here! More

About 4 different waitresses approached me about if I was ready to order after telling the first waitress that I was waiting for someone to arrive before ordering. Another waitress attempted to seat another party in my booth--while I was there--as well. While they apologized, it was definitely unorthodox.

Loved the dishes created by the chef. Enjoyed the 'ringside' seat watching the chefs at work- quietly, efficiently, assembling each dish without undue waiting. We had the 5 course meal and had 3 little chef specials on top of that. More

Discover East Village

The East Village was once the heart of New York counterculture. Poets, artists, punk rockers and people who lived against the grain gravitated to St. Mark’s Place, perhaps the most well-known street neighboring Tompkins Square Park. Today, the original character of the place remains, but there’s an abundance of trendy eateries and fast-casual restaurants that take some of the edge out of the place. Still, charming tiny restaurants serving upscale, rustic fare add dimension to the multilayered neighborhood.
