What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.8

21 Greenpoint is a great neighborhood spot that’s not just a consolation prize if you can’t get into Paulie Gee’s across the street.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

2nd time dining and I wish it was the 20th time. The place has a lovely vibe and attentive service. The food was again fantastic. We had the pizza which is so tasty and fresh. The steak was melt in the mouth. Very highly recommended.

Great atmosphere and good service but my $29 steak was so tough it was almost inedible and covered in hollandause sauce which shouldn’t be necessary or should be optional.
The noise level was so high you could hardly hear your dining companion mainly due to the volume of music which forces everyone to speak louder.

This was the third time we were there. We ordered the venison tartar and mussels as our appetizers. The venison was delicious but it came with only two small pieces of bread and we didn't have enough bread to spread the venison. At the end when we ate the tartar by itself it was too salty. An additional piece of bread would make the venison perfect. The Mussels were fresh and good. We had the steak and the pork chop for our entree and they didn't disappoint. Overall a nice meal with good quality food and fair price. It will be nice if there is a table cloth. I felt the table was not clean so I was afraid to put my utensils on the table.

21Greenpoint is an absolute go-to for me and my husband; we love bringing out-of-towners in for a cozy meal, a well-balanced cocktail, and a solid good vibe. It's a great way to give them a feel of the neighborhood while making sure to hit the spot when it comes to food + drink. We love the ambiance and the easy-going but knowledgable staff--this is truly a must for friends in the hood or anyone visiting Greenpoint. We love you, 21GP!

Had a lovely time as a result of a friend’s recommendation to try 21Greenpoint. Small and friendly spot with diverse menu. Full bar and nice background music
Good spot to go with a small or larger group. Limited reservations -offer walk-in tables. Service was helpful and top notch-good recommendations. Looking forward to reward to return.

The salmon salad and cobbler dessert were the best things I tasted. And wow were they good. The Chicken Schnitzel was not schnitzel and was a bit bland. The roasted garlic pizza was just okay. The wait staff was really awesome and the cocktails were good, as well as the wine.

The only downside (if I had to write something) was that (1) the food came out too quickly - would’ve preferred the courses more spaced out to have a more leisurely meal and (2) that it was a bit too warm in the restaurant; it was an unseasonably warm day and perhaps they didn’t put on the AC or have fans going.

We were in town from Maine and chose 21 Greenpoint for a special family dinner. My son and his wife live in the neighborhood, and had not been there before. It was wonderful! Lots of terrific attention from Arion, who made us feel very special. We also met the owner, Homer Murray on the way out. He introduced himself and chatted a bit. A lovely way to treat your guests! We will go back!

You have probably heard of 21 Greenpoint because it's owned by Homer Murray, Bill Murray's son. What you should know about 21 Greenpoint is that the food and drink is done extremely well. Utilizing local and seasonal ingredients, 21 Greenpoint sets the bar high. This visit my girlfriend and I split the Mickey's Salad and the Chicken Roulade. The Mickey's Salad (mixed greens, radish, crouton, feta and shallot vinaigrette) was really good. Such a simple salad but full of great flavors. The Chicken Roulade (merguez, bacon, hummus, root vegetables, herbed yogurt, and saffron) was what we both went crazy over. Crispy bacon wrapped around chicken with great fresh vegetables and hummus? You won't be disappointed. They also have craft cocktails which are very good too. Be sure to check them out.

We had a good time on our girl's night. This was our second annual Fall girls outing at 21 Greenpoint. We wanted to make it a tradition since the ambiance is so nice, we're mostly all in the neighborhood and my friends are obsessed with Bill Murray.

I will say that last year and this year's food fell a little short for me personally.

Last year we got a bunch of dishes to share, albeit the portions are pretty small. We had ordered a pasta dish last year that was like an alfredo but with a ton of whole peppercorns mixed into it. It was way too overpowering, where probably one crushed peppercorn would have been enough. We ended up picking out all the little peppercorns out of both orders and eating the dishes that way.

This year, I ordered the Mussels in Tomato sauce. The mussels were fresh and the dish was plentiful but the flavor was lacking. There needed some more herbs to lift the dish. It was a very one note tomato sauce.

My friends love it here, mostly due to the possibility of seeing Bill Murray, but the food and drinks are very meh in comparison to the millions of great restaurants in NYC.

The service here, however, is always impeccable. Really nice wait staff and very friendly.

This is by far one of my favorite restaurants in all of NYC. The food is amazing, the space is inviting, the music is perfect. Most of all, the bartenders and wait-staff create a warm, welcoming vibe. No Pretense...Totally authentic. We closed the place; really didn't want to leave. Reminds you what a restaurant experience can be. Be back soon.
