We booked for our anniversary dinner as we had been there before, never looked at any reviews. So the day of our dinner, my husband reads the Yelp reviews and they were disappointing to say the least. I was really looking forward to dining there and our reservation was already confirmed, we flirted with the idea of dining elsewhere but decided to go ahead and take our chances hoping that with the city opened up for some time now and increased business, they would live up to their reputation. We decided on the prix fix menu, I had the pasta appetizer followed by the beef Wellington medium rare, hubby chose the scallops and the Lamb entree. We also shared a half dozen oysters they were awesome. Every dish was well prepared and tasted great. the only complaint was the the temperature of the scallops, they were not hot but well prepared and delish. for dessert I chose the creme brûlée (if its on the menu I can't resist) I enjoyed 2 vodka martinis with extra olives that were well made and the olives tasted great. the service was OK, I've definitely experienced better. Both the Maître D' and host were maskless, the servers however did wear masks. Piano player a nice touch as usual. Oh and a couple got engaged❤️
Wonderful dining experience overall. The 3 course price fix menu includes your choice of appetizer, entree and dessert. Wonderful ambiance, suggest the inside seating but not right next to the windows facing the garden. Several “critters” roaming around, not unusual for NYC and did not affect our dining experience but may be unpleasant to some
We went for a romantic dinner and had the worst service. Our three course tasting was so rushed and I didn’t feel like the meal was special at all
Everything from the greeting at the door, through all the food and wine, was excellent. Always a pleasure!!
Best place for a special occasion. The historical romantic ambiance is the perfect atmosphere for a romantic dinner. Then the high quality food - I highly recommend the Beef Wellington - hits your palate with a parade of flavors. The attentive staff and their attention to detail tops off the experience as nearly perfect!
The food was fantastic!
Really liked this restaurant. Chose it to celebrate our 2-yr anniversary and couldn't be happier. My girlfriend was beaming as we both enjoyed the ambiance. Service was excellent with food to match.
Room looked tired and faded, needs fresh flowers everywhere, not dying roses on the tables. Food was mediocre. Tough octopus, dry branzino, reheated lamb ; no sides offered although they were listed on menu; no little extras to start or end the meal as one would expect for the price. Service was gracious. Altogether it felt like a tired catering hall experience.
The food was great! Thought the three course meal was well priced. Service was great - we were even given a free dessert for our anniversary.
Very romantic. Wonderful experience.
Dinner was for an engagement and the staff there made sure it came off without a hitch. Excellent excellent excellent.
This place it’s just amazing in every level. It’s a whole experience that every person should have. Food, service and ambiance are top and I’ll definitely be back!
excellent experience. best beef wellington I've ever had the pleasure to eat, didnt want it to end. Wife had lobster, cooked perfectly and alap excellent taste. Thanks for making our evening special in every way, can't wait to return.
Great restaurant for a anniversary dinner
beef Wellington is top caliber and the place is not packed at all. it does not has a dress code and serves relatively fast. this is definitely the place for a quick but nice dinner
Good date night place to go once, it’s a nice experience but not enough staff and food is ok, not everything on the cute t menu is available which was disappointing.
A great value whether via prix fixe or chef's tasting! Beautiful inside and intimate ambience in some tables (ours was kind of in a high traffic area; is it common for reservations made through OpenTable to get sub-optimal seating? That's been my experience...). Other parties of similar size (e.g., a party of two) were serviced much more quickly than us (and we had been seated prior to them), so that was a bit odd. Overall, a wonderful experience and would love to go back!
If you are looking for a romantic place to dine this is the place. The food is very good as well.
Beautiful venue, tasting menu was delicious, wine pairing was OK but not great.
An incredible dining experience! Exquisite food…look no further for the most perfect, melt in your mouth Beef Wellington ever, that you’ll never want to order it anywhere else! Major romantic dinner that fits everything one could ever want for fine dining. Amazing staff that is readily available for any of your needs with a great sense of anticipatory style. I can’t recommend this place highly enough!
It was a great experience, and even though I've seen a couple bad reviews, I'd say it was completely different for. Our waiter Marco went beyond good service, he was attentive, calm and never forgot to explain about every dish and wine pairing.
My wife fell in love with this cozy place; chandeliers, views to a beautiful garden and beautiful service
Very good and recommended place to have a romantic dinner
Beautiful atmosphere, exceptional service and best food we've ever eaten.
Had a special anniversary night.
It’s ALL about love of food, ambiance, service & “The One”
Nice table with view og garden - and it's resident rats! So entertaining.
It was a lovely experience. The meal was well spaced out and delicious. The pianist was excellent and the drinks were great.
Had an absolutely wonderful experience here for my 10 year anniversary. The ambience, food, drinks, and service were all amazing. I highly recommend.
Our mini goodbye dinner as we leave the city for the summer. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious- we did the three course prix fixe and enjoyed everything! All the proteins (scallops, lobster, halibut) were PERFECTLY cooked- so well executed! Would recommend for a romantic, special date night.
At this price point I expect to leave feeling like I had a special treat for myself. This was not the case. Although the presentation was nice the meals themselves were just ok. Overall each course tasted as though it was done the way a line cook was showen to do so. Nothing over the top or even reaching the summit. Service was up to par with the finest establishments. Decor is pleasing and sets an attractive stage for what ends up being an upscale casual family dining meal.
Very pleasant evening, good food, great ambience and wonderful service.
Our server, Orchid was great! Very friendly, the ambiance of the restauarant was very romantic, beautifully decorated. Great for a special occassion!
Excellent food, wonderful atmosphere, impeccable service. They just do everything right at this legendary restaurant. We've been there many times over the years and have never been disappointed in any way. From the fresh flowers and candlelit tables to the live piano music and fireplaces, you just simply cannot find a more romantic restaurant in NYC. An outstanding experience every single time.
Celebrated a special occasion and this place did not disappoint. Excellent food and service made for a truly memorable dinner. Will mostly certainly return.
Our 10th anniversary and first time out to dinner since the March shut down - One If By Land did not disappoint. Amazing food. A romantic and cozy atmosphere. A long meal to sit and enjoy! Worth every penny!
Very small portions and very expensive! The food and service was good but highly overpriced.
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! YOU MUST GET THE BEEF WELLINGTON!!
We ordered the 7 course tasting menu. Food was great and we loved their beef Wellington. It did help that we were able to get a table by the window. Overall it’s a good dining experience.
