The staff was personable enough, but we just got bad service. I made my reservation through opentable but they had no record of it. I showed my confirmation e-mail to the hostess and she was polite about helping us, but just pointed at our table across the room instead of seating us. There was a special Valentine's menu that included sea bass and hanger steak, which we ordered. Unfortunately, we were served the sea bass and hanger steak from the regular menu and the steak was not cooked as I had ordered it. Maybe it was just an off night. The atmosphere seems great for drinks, but we won't come back for dinner.

The ambiance and the extensive menu were great! Was a perfect Valentines Day spot.

Good ambiance, fun music, delicious drinks. Really a cool place. Didn't realize it turned into a club around 10:00 pm. Had to elbow our way to the restroom through all the party-goers. Food was bland & nothing to write home about. I would go for the night life, not for a dinner.

Great place. We were looking for a cosy place with great ambiance and found it there by chance. We enjoyed the food, the decor, the service, reasonable price and the music also.

Most of the experience was great. Deviled eggs were a little bland, and the so were the zoodles. Friend loved her steak, and service was great as well.

Nice spot. Service was good and good was excellent. Short rib tacos were some of the best. Scallops and risotto was cooked just right. A bit noisy but overall lively good spot.

Local neighborhood gem! Love the ambiance in there with the lights. Good place for a chilly night. Had the short rib with elote. Wasn't my favorite - I wasn't feeling the BBQ sauce on the short rib, but that's my fault - I should've known BBQ sauce probably wasn't a great choice for me. The elote would've been good, but it tasted really sweet for some reason, like there was sugar in there along with the cheese. Not sure if that was on purpose. But my friend liked his meal and the oysters were good! I'd give it another shot!

Great spot. Food was delicious. We had the deviled eggs, fried calamari, the blackened seared tuna, and the spaghetti bolognese. Our friends had the penne vodka and loved it as well.

The one 'con' is not one I would typically mention, but given that we were told it happens somewhat frequently, I think it's worth noting. We all met a little earlier than our reservation and had a drink at the bar. The local DA office was having a happy hour, and they ended up having several of their team members give speeches over the course of 20 minutes. Definitely awkward to sit at a bar and have to whisper while people spoke for 20 minutes. Not really appropriate unless you have a private room.

My friend knocked over his glass of wine & it was cleaned up & replaced before you could blink an eye. The cocktails are cold & the food is delicious. Dinner for 4 with cocktails including tip was $180 & we ordered quite a bit. I highly recommend this Nolita establishment which I stop at every time I am in Manhattan.

Native NYer and this was my first time at Oniels. We really enjoyed our family dinner of 12 at Onieals. Lisa, our waitress, was extremely pleasant, helpful and accommodating. The food was delicious and the cocktails refreshing. will definitely return.

Last minute reservation and we couldn't be happier with the restaurant. Very good drink selection, cocktails, beer and wine all had something to choose. Apps, Salad, and main course were tasty. Felt like a local place that you would have on the regular dinner rotation. Will be back when in the area.

This is a lovely bar with a few tables available for eating. We went for the Sunday brunch and we all enjoyed the food. The waffles with fruit were great (two large waffles). The omelettes were excellent as well. Marcus, our server, could not have been nicer.

I loved the food and services there
It was a super bowl night and everything is amazing even the place packed by people.

Cute & Charming

My group of 7 had a reservation for a table this past Saturday. It was crowded, boisterous and loud, but so are we so we fit right in :) The menu in the restaurant differed from the one online and we weren't thrilled with it at first...but it turned out great. The mac and cheese with bacon app was awesome; we got two to share and each were able to have a few bites. Good burgers, the scallops with risotto was delicious and a just-right portion...our table by the windows with all the sparkly lights was cozy and charming.
