Contemporary American | Harlem, Manhattan

Dined here tonight with friends. This was the best culinary experience I had in forever! First: the intimate setting was great for conversation. I came here with 3 other friends, and, even though the space is small, it never felt crowded, and we could speak at a normal (to sometimes loud!) volume. Second: the ambience was fitting. The music was definitely smooth R&B, which was a conversation-starter in itself! Third: the staff was inviting and attentive. I know there are only 12 seats in the entire place, but it felt like we were our own table. I do not remember ever having to ask for anything. Glasses were replenished, plates were taken away frequently (and we ordered a lot of food!), and our waitress constantly checked in on us. The chef, who was really personable and warm, was very gracious and genuinely flattered by our compliments. Last (not at ALL least): THE FOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We shared almost every menu item, and were amazed at almost every bite. The flavor profiles! The freshness of the ingredients! The play on textures of many of the dishes! The presentation! And the perfect execution! I wish I could give this place 6 STARS. Come to Belle Harlem. You will not regret it. More

Italian | Harlem, Manhattan

The place doesn't look like much from the outside. I went because the reviews were very positive and I have to agree. From the moment we entered until we left, the owner ( I missed his name) was our host, server and entertainer. Great guy! The food was simple ( Southern Italian from the Adriatic coast) and very fresh. If you are looking for a "wow" experience where the food is the "wow" reason and not the decor,then this place should be on your list of places to go. I will be back for sure. More

We have ordered takeout from Nocciola many times since moving to Harlem and the food has always been really good. Dining at the restaurant was even better, the service was very good, the staff was welcoming and friendly, and the food was excellent! The only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is because of the very uncomfortable lighting. They have these awful blue-ish led lights in the ceiling and that really kills an otherwise cozy interior. More

Outstanding food and wine list in a relaxed atmosphere that would be delightful for a special occasion or for a casual night out with friends. You don't have to spend a lot, but if you enjoy fine wine it would be easy to do. I had a duck special, my friends had scallops and chicken fricassee, and no one was disappointed. The chef came out to chat and tell us more about the wine we ordered. All in all, a charming evening. More

We were disappointed to see that the menu items advertised on the website were not available. Also we made a reservation earlier that day, that they were not ready for. We had to wait for our table to be set. I know things happen but I was disappointed. I stated on the reservation that we were celebrating a new job and there was no acknowledgment by the numerous servers we seemed to have. Food was decent but there's other more hospitable places in the area. More

Cuban | Harlem, Manhattan

Excellent, authentic Cubano! We took our son for his 21st birthday. He wanted authentic Cuban, after spending several weeks in Cuba recently. I did some research, and came upon Amor Cubano. We were not at all disappointed. Everything was authentic, fresh, and delicious. I highly recommend the mixed ceviche, which was loaded with fresh seafood and delicious herbs. Several of us had the traditional paella, with the seafood, chicken and chorizo. It was incredible! The mojitos were strong and delicious, and there were many different flavors to choose from. The tres leches cake for dessert was delicious. My son loved everything, and said it was as good as the food that he ate in Cuba! Thank you, Amor Cubano, for a wonderful 21st birthday for my son!

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

Nice, friendly location even for first timers. We were there at happy hour and they had some good deals on apps and drinks. The menu is varied and everything we ordered was well received by the people in my party. Our waiter was friendly and helpful and he seemed over extended. Maybe they need more help but that did not distract from a nice dinner. More

After dinner we just hung out at the bar and smoked some hookah. Wish they had more hookah flavors. But overall the hookah was pretty good and lasted a really long time which was nice. I had a pleasant time and will probably go back here. 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.
