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.
