    The service was below avg and the food materially below avg giving pricing point. We ordered the steak and there was no flavor and the mash potatoes were watery and you could barely taste the truffles. The bread was old and stale and tough to even cut. The waitress had a horrible attitude and not once smiled. The place was half empty when we walked in and now I understand why. Horrible value for your money. Only thing that remained intact when this place was good back in the days is the ambiance and the decor, somewhat. Never again walking into this place. don’t get fooled by the positive reviews below.

    One if By Land/Two if by Sea fell well short of the mark on the evening of June 19 in many respects. I will acknowledge the food was good but not exceptional. However, at this premium pricing - $130 for a 3-course prix fixe menu plus an equally expensive wine list – it was a very, very poor value. I am always glad to pay if the service and overall dining room experience merited it. For example, Majorelle at 63rd between Madison and Park is $155 but provides so much more value. Same with Gramercy Tavern at $165. And I can name many more. The entrance experience was our first clue. My wife and I arrived at 5:15 for our 5:30 reservation on Father’s Day – although we were there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. There was no staff inside the door. We walked to the large empty bar and ordered two wines from a very limited by-the-glass menu from an indifferent bartender. The room was devoid of any energy. Around 5:30 we told the bartender that we had a reservation and were ready to sit down (he had not previously asked if we had a reservation). And then he asked us to settle up our tab – not a big deal but in my experience, exclusive restaurants usually add bar drinks to your bill. The waitress seemed knowledgeable about the menu but also indifferent. And the tone went downhill after that where the staff seemed to just be going through the motions. All of this might have been tolerable at a neighborhood restaurant where the entrees are $30 and the wine list well below $100. But not at a restaurant that positions itself on its website as among the best in NYC (“One if by land, Two if by Sea serves some of the finest American cuisine in New York City…sure to satisfy even the most discerning food connoisseur and provide you with the most enjoyable dining experience”). In summary at the correct price point re: food, service and ambience I would rate OIBL/TIBS a three. At the price point it chooses to offer itself to the market, it is a one in my opinion.

    My wife and I absolutely loved our experience dining at this restaurant. We were looking for a romantic place to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary and this place did not let down. The service was great, the food was amazing, and the atmosphere was excellent!! The only let down, was that I specified in my reservation note that we were there to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary, anticipating one of those "Happy Anniversary" dessert dishes at the end, which did not happen. However, when the waitress asked about our experience and we shared how amazing the night was but missed the dish, she offered to bring it out for us. By then we were full, so declined. This did not for a moment ruin our experience. We both loved the entire evening. I absolutely recommend it!

    Three course price fix meal. Portions were generous and flavorful. The fish substitute of red snapper was really tasty. Dessert options were many. Our server was attentive but sadly, our choice of red wine was not available. All in all, a great new discovery! Would definitely go back again.

    An excellent experience. We purchased the seven course tasting menu with the wine paring. Service was excellent. Staff was flexible. We were not thrilled with the identified desert. We were offered the full desert menu. My wife was not thrilled with the 10 year tawny port served with the desert and was able to get an alternative desert drink. If there is any negative, it is the cost. This is not a cheap meal.

    It was our fourth or fifth trip to one of by land and the food, ambiance and service was wonderful. We unfortunately dined next to a large group of younger guests who spent the entire time taking selfies in different seats. I felt like we were at a rotating table party! If definitely distracted from the experience but I think this was an unusual phenomenon. The house cocktails were excellent and the beef Wellington the best I’ve ever had. Definitely worth a visit!

    A beautiful, romantic, historic place whose reputation is well deserved! My noise level rating is only due to one particular guest we determined was discreetly moved after he became loud and disruptive, but the staff expertly dealt with that situation! We looked forward to every dish! The sashimi was excellent! The scallops were lovely. Sadly, the bake on the Wellington was doughy and that dish as well as the the soufflée came out way too hot. Wait before diving in! The soufflée was perfectly executed otherwise! A winner winner winner dessert. The lentils were memorable and the pasta was amazing! We might come back for the pasta alone! We were disappointed to have a snapper instead of sea bass. The foie gras may have been a bit over cooked, but with the crepe and greens it was such a fantastic pairing, (the crepe was sublime) that dish won us over! We so loved the ambiance, the kindness of the staff, the Mock-tails and the excellent food, which was really so very lovely! Thanks for such a beautiful evening ❤️

    After a fabulous cocktail, we had the 7-course chef's taster menu meal, with wine-pairing. Unbelievably sumptuous! Each course, and wine (all but one American) were delightful, finishing with a cappuccino and an individual chocolate souffle'. Likely the MOST EXPENSIVE meal we'll ever have, but fitting to our celebratory mood. Very romantic. Definitely a "bucket-list" dinner!

    I booked this table for my bestie’s birthday a week ago and I expected a wonder dinner and birthday celebration. However, this restaurant has really let us down and we were so disappointed. At first, we came at 6pm which was early and they assigned us at a random table which is shaky. We requested a table change but the new table is just under the ac and it was so cold. After we ordered 2 tasting menu, with me allergic to mushroom, they didn’t offer me any substitute. Instead of it, they just removed the pastry of beef Wellington which just made it a common beef. The most annoying thing is that even if we mentioned that it’s my friend’s birthday, nobody cares or prepare anything. But surprisingly, we saw other table given birthday surprise cake or candle. Overall Nothing is satisfying and nothing is worth 240 dollar pp. Avoid this restaurant!!!!
