I have been to Mountain Bird and Gaudir, both at this location. You must try both of these restaurants. It’s an excellent choice for a special evening and business meals. Gaudir is at this location on Mondays, and Mountain Bird is there the rest of the week. Both have incredible creative menus; the service is impeccable; prices are moderate; they use the highest quality ingredients. More

American | Harlem, Manhattan

I had a situation where I called to find out if kitchen was closed for the night. The answer given was the kitchen will be closing in 15 min. I didn't want to chance missing the food so I asked if the woman I was on the phone with if she could place my order and I would be there in 15mins. I had a table reserved already. The woman then told me that she could not place my order but I could get takeout.. At that point I was confused. So I ended the conversation and I didn't come out. I was extremely dissatisfied with tone of the woman I was on the phone with. I was absolutely angry that I wouldn't be able to have drinks and eat as I planned all day. I will remain a customer after this point because I like the Harlem Tavern. I just don't want to be disappointed again. More

I recently moved to Harlem and Savann will be a place I revisit frequently. Lamb meatballs in yogurt will be a repeat order. The bread is . . . homemade and came to the table warm and was great for mezz dipping. I can't wait to try everything on the menu. The wine choices are also really good. I will be coming back with friends for a cozy twosome and also come with back with a larger group as it is perfect for sharing. It's a very comfortable place with excellent food, attentive service and truly great value. More

Seafood | Harlem, Manhattan

Diana was a terrific and attentive server last night. My lobster bisque, while very tasty, was overly salted.... kitchen needs to cut way back on the salt, which can easily be added at the table if the diner wants that amount of salt. The nation Red Lobster should heed this advice and trend. Biscuits were delicious, if a bit heavy on the garlic.... a little less would be just as effective. Nice roomy tables and quiet atmosphere. A cpl of spotlights were flickering like strobes and should have been changed before the dinner service as it's quite disruptive, and the bathroom stalls in the ladies room could use attention. Would dine there again. More

Came in and the staff was very chill and accommodating. Drinks were good I got the spicy Margarita which was very spicy. Our food came out and we were a group of 8. Some of the people in our party's fold was a bit cold but they took the plates back and rewarmed it right away. I ordered the Jerk Salmon, sweet plantain and veggies and mine was warm and delicious. I would definitely come back again. More

Nabe is a good restaurant with amazing service. I would recommend it more for its awesome service than anything else, even though the food is good as well. The setting is real tranquil and welcoming, with a subtle vibe. The only issue I have is that the portion for their rice meals are too tiny for the price, when I've had much larger portions at other places for the same price. That being said, their soups are a big portions so it just depends on what you order. I would go back to this establishment. 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.
