Went here after drinks with family and friends and wanted someplace nearby so just gave a shot.

The Cavatelli was to tie for and the shrimp dish was awesome if a little spicy. I could have ordered any number of entrees and been happy. Friendly welcome, efficient but warm waitress. Warm ambiance and cool downtown look. Go!

Really disappointing experience on both the food and the service front. Our server was great when we were able to attract his attention but he had too many tables to look after, including two big groups. The food wasn’t anything special either but the chicken liver pate was great.

Almond is an all-around excellent NY experience that doubles as a great neighborhood spot. Menu is simple but creative and well executed. Staff is on top of their game, always there with a recommendation while also allowing guests to enjoy conversation w out interruption. I feel appropriate bringing my teenagers for family dinner as I do sitting at the bar with friends or on date night.

We had waited for 45 minutes after bread and water were served before our waiter could come to take our order. The beets and arugula salad was very good. My duck was tender and soft, but I found a bit on the too salty side. Chocolate mouse topped with whipped cream looked ordinary but tasted terrific. The restaurant was very crowded at 7:15pm so was quite noisy. There was a pool table at the back of the restaurant where customers could play pool to kill time while your food was being prepared. Food is obviously their strong point. I don’t recommend it if you are in a hurry to go somewhere after the meal. We had a good time though.

Thank you for letting us sit down even though our party was not completely there. The food choices were good and the portions generous. The service was a bit spotty - either several wait staff offering help... or none. Most odd. Yet the whole experience was very good - the restaurant has a cool atmosphere if not a bit noisy.

So disappointed in this meal.

The large dining room was busy but not full (entire sections were not seated) but our food took a long time, half of it was burned, the French fries raw and mushy and courses were delivered out of order.

We had to ask for more bread three times while we waited 20 minutes for the appetizers, and our server, while friendly and energetic, made several mistakes and was very difficult to track down. We practically had to jump up and down to get her attention about our burned food.

The bus staff is over-eager and took appetizers which we were still eating. The server apparently knew she had a table of disappointed, high maintenance New Yorkers and tried to make it right with four free, bite-sized peanut butter cups. Too bad one of our diners has a peanut allergy - and another spit it out in disgust.

We won't be returning here or going to Bridgehampton location this summer.

The wine selection is pretty good, though.

Waitress barely attended to our table at brunch. Didn't take our order until she took the order of the people next to us (who were seated after us) and saw us still sitting there with menus. Didn't check on us once when we finally had our food, and was difficult to flag down when one of us ran out of water.

I ordered the eggs benedict. The english muffin was rubbery and difficult to cut. For the prices they charge, this experience was not worth it and I would not go back.

Very disappointed. Have always loved L&W (sister restaurant) and unfortunately it is now shutting down. Saw that Almond was listed for Restaurant Week and have been wanting to check it out. Immediately upon arrival we were greeted with uninterested looks by the host and hostess (it was 7:45pm...). After being seated and waiting 25 mins a waiter came over and just stood and stared at us...didn’t say anything...we asked if we could order drinks and he said “sure”. I asked if something’s going on here because it felt like there was some sort of internal issue with the restaurant in terms of staff. He replied by saying “oh you didn’t get the email?”. I said “what email?” And he replied with “the one about everyone getting seated in my section”. Extremely awkward. I asked if we could order and we did and never saw him again till we asked for the check. The appetizers and entree were DELICIOUS. Dessert felt microwaved. First time I’ve ever given 15% tip and I’ve never been prouder...

Can't say anything bad about Almond. It's a mainstay for my family for many, many years. Great food, great drinks, great service. A triple threat in the NYC restaurant industry.

The one thing you can certainly rely on at Almond since they opened their doors in Manhattan is getting a consistent, delicious meal, a great bottle of wine and a waitstaff that is either dry and friendly or quirky and friendly, which just adds to the charm of the place. Whether it id date night, family night or dinner with good friends, always a great choice!
