This is without a doubt my favorite Harlem Restaurant and I can say without reservation one of my favorite restaurant experiences ever. I love the up close and personal attention given by the owners. The food is absolutely five star and the wine selection is superb. The price points are high but ironically that fact adds to the Belle Harlem's specialness. This is not your everyday run of the mill establishment. It is a unique experience and therefore worth the costs. More

Very solid neighborhood restaurant. Excellent pizzas from their brick oven. All pasta dishes are very good. I recently tried their spinach fettuccine. I normally wouldn't order a dish with 'cream sauce' but one waiter assured me that it isn't a heavy cream sauce. It is now my new favorite dish here. I often come here for lunch and I recently brought my family here for dinner and it was a perfect choice. They greeted my family warmly and gave us great table. Easy drive from the GWB for my city-phobic fam. More

Stylish without being pretentious; enough French classics to make one salivate for more on a return visit. The generous portion of saumon buerre blanc was a bit too rich for my taste but will surely delight most diners. Superb shredded duck pate that could still be spread on toast. Service was excellent and the noise level was manageable at 8-9 pm on a weekday. We also relished the challenge of reading the French aphorisms in the 'books' used to house the menus. More

Loved this restaurant! Went for NYC Restaurant Week lunch.

And the quality and flavor of the food was outstanding! More

This is my new favorite find. Came on Sunday at 3:30pm and had the most delicious filet mignon Benedict for only $19. It would easily be $27. Anywhere else. The prices are incredibly inexpensive for what you get. Extremely attentive servers and busboys. Awesome live music periodically, too. Check out Mintons live jazz next door. I’m grateful I live in the neighborhood. More

It was a great experience for Father’s day. My family and I were welcomed and seated immediately. Camille, the hostess was so warm and pleasant - she placed the food orders, kept refilling our waters, and checking to make sure we had everything we needed. The food was to die for - quick, cooked to perfection and delicious. To top it off, the setup felt authentic to Jamaica and allowed us to be immersed in the culture of Harlem. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat and I will definitely return! Love. More

We love Row House. The food and cocktails are delicious. We sat outside so the noise level was perfect for conversation. It was a bit louder inside but not so loud it would prevent conversation. There is a lounge downstairs if you want to drink in a romantic speakeasy environment. We didn't go this time because it was closed for a private party. Note, the downstairs lounge requires a password on some nights. More

Even though I can’t stand sports bars and those distracting jumbo screens...I love this place. Maxwell’s has multiple TV screens, so when it’s some big game night, forget it. But on those days, their To-Go menu is fab. That said: That Greek goddess salad is genius. The staff is fabulous. Their kitchen cares about making great plates. The cocktails have a creative flair. Love it. More

Went for a Saturday brunch to hear the Jazz band. The service was excellent and the food was good. Price/quality is very good but the portion was a bit small for me :) maybe a good idea though if you plan on having dessert afterwards ! The only thing was the lack (or very little) of AC inside during hot summer days! We had an excellent time and I would recommend it! More

Pleasant dinner in a very friendly spot. The food is an interesting mix of Japanese and Caribbean-American; a word to the wise: anything described on the menu as spicy is likely to be fiery. Definitely try the Brussels sprouts, and the catfish tempura. Wednesday is jazz night, starting at 7:30. More

Discover Harlem

Renowned for its vibrant culture across music and literature, Harlem’s burgeoning restaurant scene has made it one of the most exciting neighborhoods in the five boroughs. Soul food is always on the menu, but now it has a modern twist—part gourmet, part classic comfort. And it’s not all chicken and waffles uptown. Ramen shops beckon with their slurpy noodles, and down-home seafood shacks sling salt water treasures. To spice it up, you can also explore NYC’s only Somali restaurant for savory pastries and other adventurous eats. Amidst the brownstones and history of Harlem, new flavors await.
