    A true New York restaurant experience. Like old times. Very expensive but if you can afford it, it’s worth it.

    A tremendous rip-off. Great ambience, sure. But the food is over-priced and…well…not that good. You could definitely get better value at dozens of other places in Manhattan that are just as romantic. Meanwhile, the Beef Wellington at OIBLTIBS is inedible.

    Messed up drink orders and had a very undercooked egg dish (runny egg whites) for brunch.

    Went there for mother's day. the ambiance is great, the place is beautiful and they had a live band. However, the food wasn't great to say the least. We got the eggplant Napoleon which was luke warm not hot and needed salt. Then we got the shakshukah and avocado toast which wasn't great either. I would give it one more shot for dinner (maybe its just that their brunch) sucks but if dinner is bad as well no amount of ambiance or live band is gonna make up for mediocre food and not to mention high prices.

    The space is beautiful, but the food doesn't keep up with the West Village's competition. For the price, we would've expected more flavorful dishes.

    My wife and I celebrated our anniversary last night and had a magnificent time. We did the Chef’s Tasting Menu with the wine pairing and everything was incredible. Food, wine, service, ambience — all perfect. I don’t mind spending top dollar for a wonderful evening out. Highly recommend for that special occasion.
