It had been years since I had eaten here last. The food is still delicious and the service is still impeccable. The items recommended by our waiter, who was very gracious and accommodating, were particularly good. The only item we were not crazy about was the miso cod, which was an item we chose, but everything else was great. There was no dessert the evening we went, so I cannot comment about that. More

Had a great meal with my husband and niece on a Saturday night. Place was packed but we were seated right away. Had a great waitress Emily with a short substitution of another waitress. Both were super - good energy and fun. Couldn’t figure out what wine to choose do we were brought over some tasters which was really nice. Food was good - husband said best burger ever! The restaurant also made an effort to accommodate my gluten free requirements- had the Sea bass - very tasty. Only thing that needs improvement is the desserts - I had the flourless chocolate cake. Cake was dry, and vanilla ice cream was tasteless. Time to source another vendor - good ice cream could have redeemed the plate. My niece had the sticky toffee pudding which she said was great but again the ice cream on top took away from the dish. More

Fantastic service—attentive without being overbearing. Excellent food—flavorful, generous portions, gluten-free without worry of cross-contamination (bread basket includes the best rice cakes you will ever eat and tasty focaccia-style slices), and a nice range of vegetarian options. The current seasonal dessert, a pumpkin ricotta pie, is out of this world, but the standard desserts are also top-notch. More

I had heard about Lil Frankie's from several people so I had to check it out. I came here for my birthday dinner with a friend. Overall it was a great experience! Food was absolutely delicious. I had a spaghetti limone and they were kind enough to add garlic at my request as I love it. They also made a small desert for me as it was my birthday, that was sweet. The service was also friendly. The only thing is that this restaurant is tiny, including the bathroom. So everything feels kinda crammed. But still, I really enjoyed the food and service. Just a quick tip that this place is cash only. More

I have been going to Jules for years and it is a cute French place that feels authentic like a cafe in Paris. The food is quite good and hearty so perfect for a crisp Fall evening. Our waiter was a bit laissez-faire...he did not tell us the specials, he never refilled our water bottle and we had to track him down to get the check (we skipped dessert because we had waited so long to get his attention). Not cool. Jules feature live music which is really great but it is a tiny place and it can get loud so don't plan on having a quiet conversation. More

My experience started off pretty badly in the beginning I have to admit. However, they definitely made up for it throughout the night. When my part of 4 arrived, the hostess sat us in the corner at one of the lounge tables with the really really REALLY small table. The table could barely fit 3 drinks let alone food and there were plenty of regular dining tables that were vacant. About five minutes later, she comes by and moves us to one of the bigger regular dining table. The staff was very nice and pleasant, but the wait for our drinks/food took a bit of time. Even though it started off rocky, I would definitley go back because the food was delicious! 2 people ordered salads and they were nice sized big portions and the calamari and poutine were out of this world! For dinner, we all got the salmon entree and it was the best we've ever tried!!! Beautiful crispy skin and the fish was perfectly moist. We were so happy that we almost ordered another round! More

My overall rating was 4 stars. It did not seem like the staff communicated in the beginning of my time at the establishment. 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. Nonetheless, the food, subsequent service, hookah, ambiance, and music were all good. I will be visiting again soon. More

Fantastic service—attentive without being overbearing. Excellent food—flavorful, generous portions, gluten-free without worry of cross-contamination (bread basket includes the best rice cakes you will ever eat and tasty focaccia-style slices), and a nice range of vegetarian options. The current seasonal dessert, a pumpkin ricotta pie, is out of this world, but the standard desserts are also top-notch. 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.
