Seasonal, Local & Artisanal Since 2001

Co-founder and chef Jason Weiner creates seasonally focused ever-changing menus that are guided by a market driven ethos. We highlight our personal relationships with growers, fishermen, artisans and winemakers.

Our menus are artisanal and market driven featuring some updated takes on classic french/mediterannean cuisine, regional street food and lots of stuff in between.

We are obsessive about the handmade...We hang our own charcuterie, grind our own sausage, ferment our own kimchi, dry age own steaks, and smoke our own fish & bacon.

The wine list, handpicked by co-owner Eric Lemonides, offers an affordable selection of wines. Specialty cocktails, NY craft beers, and raw bar selections, along with the entire menu are available at the restaurant’s 25 seat bar.

Excellent food, service and festive ambiance. Coffee was fresh which is important to me. Not too loud so it’s a great gathering place with friends.

It started with cold mussels and then the suckling pig was one of the worst meals (for a dish I love) that I’ve ever had in my life. The food was all around horrible and a waste of money. Huge let down.

The truffle Mac cheese was fantastic!! And huge! Also I had the flatbread and the lemon ricotta totally made it. Plenty of food for a 1 person meal. Loved the ambiance…felt like a euro/French cabin? With Xmas decor. It was very slow when we were there but technically it was kind of early (6:15p) for most New Yorkers. So maybe it gets busier later in the evening. Only a handful of tables seated. I would love to try their brunch, I love breakfast food and that menu was to die for 😍

My husband and I stopped by for a casual dinner. The food was so tasty and fresh! I like their creative ways to combine Asian cuisine and new American style. The fish and lamb shoulder are absolutely delicious! We are definitely coming back.

Our waiter could use more training. Almost didn’t come back to take our entree order and then when filling wine glasses he just filled mine and finished the bottle with out filling my friends glass.

Almond is one of my favorite places to go when I am in Flatiron. The service is amazing and the decor of the restaurant really adds to a great dining experience. Would come back here over and over again.

I was very excited to try this restaurant but a little disappointed. The food was good - excellent butternut squash soup and oysters. The other dishes were just good. Although our waitress was very pleasant and attractive, the service was lacking - when asked what white wine they had by the glass she had to try to find a menu and delayed the glass of wine by about 10 minutes when we had already waited 20 minutes or so for another drink as our first drinks were gone.

The food and drinks were delicious! There were also a couple workers replacing the felt on the pool table nearby so there was just a little bit of hammering noise here and there. The noise didn’t bother us at all but the restaurant offered us free desserts! They definitely went above and beyond in making sure we were comfortable, and we will be coming back here again.

Our friend is vegan so we ordered a lot of veg. Apps but also for me and my carnivore friend we got the escargot and the pâté. ALL outstanding. Then we split ( not our vegan friend) a beef dish ( forget what it was called) but it was outstanding. We were stuffed and good was excellent.

Took us a while to get seated when our whole party was there and hosts were seating other people but not our party because we had waited for people. Very disorganized and we were waiting over 15 minutes.

I always enjoy dinner at Almond - now that I’m a “bivalvegan” I only eat vegan and oysters, mussels etc - so this place has it covered! The vegan entree was fantastic and I ordered a few sides vegan style which were also great (the greens A+++). Half a dozen oysters at dinner time on Friday for $22 is a steal and they had east coast and west coast to choose from, which I appreciate. It was bustling but we never felt overlooked, almond tends to not disappoint :)

extremely poor service, we waited an hour for them to even take our order and then after two hours we still hadn’t received our entrees. The manager was also extremely rude and not apologizing at all.

We arrived early before dinner seating so satay the bar. This gave us the opportunity to sample smaller portions of some of the regular appetizers. Both the lamb toguitos and the cauliflower appetizers were delicious. For entrees we had the banana leaf wrapped trout and the lamb with grits. Both were well prepared and beautifully presented. For dessert we had the sticky toffee date with crepe friche. It was very tasty. The only concerns were that we had at least 3 waiters and it’s was confusing. The other issue was the front door that was frequently left opening causing a draft.

We ate at the bar and had a great experience. Bartender was super friendly. Food was very good, although the steak wasn't cooked to the right temperature, they quickly rectified it.
