Authentic Georgian food in the heart of Tribeca - what more could you ask for!!! For sure do the cheese bread with the egg. It is outstanding.
I had a dinner in the Old Tbilisi Garden a few years ago, and remembered it as a nice overall place with good food and atmosphere. Unfortunately my last visit was mostly disappointment, especially in regards of the food and service. Too bad because I like Georgian cusine..
Food is great, service is not!!
Tasty food, huge portions, it felt like being back in Georgia.
The appetizers (pkhali) were great. The khachapuri was good though my stomach has not handled it too well for the past couple of days. The chicken with plum sauce was good too. The place is very noisy and the service is a bit slow though very friendly; we were not in a rush, so the slow service was ok for us.
The Food is excellent. Our party of 4 each had something different and they were all perfectly prepared and served. I had not experienced Georgian cuisine before. I will be back to try the rest of the menu. Atmosphere is nice. You can carry on a conversation. The outdoor garden in the back is pretty and very nice.
Mostly, I come for the khachipuri (dough with cheese and egg, how can you go wrong?).
I went with my cousins when they were in town. I love sitting in the back, enclosed garden area. We had a reservation for 12pm and it was empty when we arrived. We got the trout, the beans and the kabob and everything was delicious. It took a little longer than I expected but the waitress had warned us and we weren't in a rush.
Terrific Georgian wine selection and fresh well seasoned dishes - the lamb kabob and chicken stew were both outstanding. The fresh hot bread is also unique and delicious. However our entrees did not arrive at the same time. We had to wait 30 minutes after the stew was served for the kabab and we were not warned that this would happen. The service was brusque and we did not feel particularly welcome. Next time, we will probably go for Georgian food at new place in Chelsea instead.
I was on first date with a very nice Georgian girl she showed her countries culture about food I had a great with a lovely girl.
It was great because one person in our party had severe shellfish allergy and there was no shellfish on the menu. The cheese appetizer was amazing, as was the borscht soup. The veal stew was also great. We definitely would go back.
We had a table in the garden and it was great. Noise level was moderate and a lot less than the indoor tables. It was our first time in a Georgian restaurant. We did our homework and read about the food and a good thing we did. The dishes we ordered were all delicious.
I only gave 2 stars for service as the waitress who served us was a bit surly and never cracked so much as a smile. It kind of ruined the atmosphere for us. Otherwise the evening went well.
Very tasty, but pricey. The ambiance is lovely, the waiter was really nice, and the food is heaven for those who like Tbilisi and Georgian cuisine. I would definitely be coming back. Just wish they have bigger portions or less expansive menu.
The food was wonderful! However, the service and attention was poor: we were sitting in the “garden area” and due to rain the water was dropping on one of us, I guess there was a hole in the ceiling; there was no offer from the staff to move the table or switch seats, we have to ask them to do it twice. Then, they turned on the heat that was burning our faces (the heating was right above our heads), when we asked to turn it down a bit, they said “no, other people might be cold”, and no one offered to us to move the tables or change sits to make sure all are comfortable. There was 7 of us, they brought only two pieces of bread, and when we asked to bring more, they did it, but 25 minutes later:(
This place offers great selection of Georgian food, which is amazingly delicious, but, unfortunately, the service is poor.
Entry came before appetizer - strange. $30 for entry of 3/4 Cubes of veal - way overpriced. Although food taste really good.
Our waitress was impatient and not friendly at all. My chicken stew was a few wing pieces and part of a thigh. I think. The food was generally good (not great) but overpriced. Needed a sharp knife to cut the chewy, mostly phyllo baklava.
Good food service slow!
A repeat visit to the restaurant. The food was just as excellent. The service is poor. On arrival there were only two tables taken at the restaurant. I had a party of two but asked for a larger table to have enough space for the food--tables for two are just way too small for a good Georgian meal. Was told that the tables for four are only for the parties of four and I had only two persons in mine. Plus, I was told, the manager is very strict about imposing this rule. My appeal that the restaurant was empty had no success. I've asked if they were expecting a crowd of people in the next few hours but received no answer. We spent about two hours at the restaurant but felt as if we were being rushed. To the extent that khinkali arrived when we have not even made a dent in the various appetizers. As we were leaving only five table were taken. It costs them nothing to be a bit more hospitable (very un-Georgian!) especially on a week-night. I will think twice before coming back. Only if I really crave the Georgian food!
One of the best meals I've had in the city. Seemed a bit on the pricey end of things for lunchtime, but this place is truly a gem
The food was really good but the staff knew next to nothing about the wines. When asked for more information if I can speak to someone who has more knowledge, the waitress said the bar is busy. She was quite rude. I went there to explore the wines and didn’t get the service or guidance.
Delicious food and very friendly service. Nice atmosphere too. Not busy at all during weekday lunch - good for informal business meetings for people interested in trying new (but accessible) cuisines.
This was my second visit to the restaurant. The eggplant salad was very good, the khachapouri excellent but the lamb khinkali was a little dry for my taste. The Rstakeli white wine was superb.
This restaurant offers great food, service, and an atmosphere as if you're actually in Old Tbilisi! I definitely recommend the experience, and can't wait to go back!
Come here if you want something different and unique. It won’t disappoint. And you’ll likely sit by some very interesting native Georgians too!
Loved loved loved the food! And amazing mohitos! The garden was really beautiful and relaxing. The service was slow and not the best I had
It was great fun to try foods with which we were unfamiliar
I was given an usable table. All requests to move my party to another table were simply ignored. We had no choice my to leave. Don’t go - really bad service
The wines are great - all from Tiblisi area as is the cheese - our fav in the bowl of fresh bread and the salad with the cucumbers and tomatoes - always fresh!
Very nice food and service. We enjoyed it very much.
Unsmiling staff, slow service, bad vibes. Too bad because I was excited to try Georgian cuisine!
Great Georgian food. Our waiter was very helpful with food and drink recommendations as our party was new to this type of cuisine.
I passed by this restaurant on many occasions. Tonight my wife and I and another couple tried it. It was very very good, I am not even going to try to spell the dishes we had, but they were all terrific — from the great with some kind of egg/cheese in the middle, to the dumplings, to the various stews we all shared. The trout was dry and uninteresting, however. Come here and be adventurous and most of us were. You won’t be disappointed.
A pretty restaurant, but fairly noisy, with very heavy comfort food. The stuffed bread with the raw egg in the cheese on top it's still one of my favorites.
You come to this place for the food. Exquisite! One of the best Georgian restaurants in the city. If you want to try some real Georgian food--this is your place. Don't waste your money on the shish kebabs. You can try them elsewhere. Try the authentic Georgian dishes made with love in this small village place.
One advice: ask for a room-temp bottle of red wine. For some reason the read wine we got was freezing. They should learn this one! They are from Georgia after all, the birthplace of wine!
Another advice to the restaurant: please put some effort in making the place look a bit more Georgian--some photos of Old Tbilisi would do the trick or some Georgian artifacts on the walls. Georgia has a lot to offer. Be proud of the great heritage.
Food was fantastic and the service was excellent. Highly recommended!!
One of my fav restaurants in the area.
tasty food and fast service, no waiting time and clean restaurant, needs to work on bathroom, can be more clean and more convenient
Having had Georgian food a number of times before, I wouldn't say it's amazing but it is good. The cocktails, however, are terrible. I would definitely only choose from the selection of Georgian wines they have which are quite good.
Wonderful food! And lovely service with good recommendations on what we should order.
This was such a lovely experience!!! I had visited Georgia about 5 years ago and Old Tbilisi Garden transported me right back there! Thank you so much for the delicious food, wine and great ambience
Great restaurant with delicious Georgian food, nice and friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. A bit expensive given the amount of food, but thats NYC prices. I'm coming from Queens where similar food is cheaper, but that's because it's in the actual immigrant community rather than in the heart of the west village. Overall a great experience!
