We found it as a last minute option nearby but it blew away our expectations! A quant restaurant with fantastic food and service. The vibe was romantic and chilled and we would definitely go again. We wished we discovered it earlier so we could have gone twice. Definitely our favourite meal in NYC. Would recommend to everyone.

We had dinner on a Sunday evening after a 3 pm matinee. The place was packed, though it's small so that is not difficult. My group enjoyed the deviled eggs and the burgers. Make sure you make a reservation days in advance if you are going before or after a show. This place books up fast. Eclectic menu, with vegan option, reasonable for midtown.

The food and service were great, but the space is tiny, even for Midtown. Our party of five was seated at a tiny side bar.

Very NYC! Small and cozy but oh so good! My husband had the french toast and it was absolutely incredible! I had an omelette and it came out pipping hot and the flavor was amazing! The host was very friendly and so were the servers.

The food was excellent, very tasty and varied (kind of small portions), with relatively fair prices. The service was surprisingly poor, however. For being only one of two parties present, we had to wait for wait staff for everything... Like waiting for water, waiting for drinks, waiting to ask for more drinks, waiting for the check, etc. They were just very focused on talking to each other instead of serving customers.

As an event planner in NYC, I always try & find new venues to use for business so I typically start off with planning a personal experience. I invited 3 additional couples to have dinner on Friday evening - it was at total of 8 of us. The ambiance was so warm, we never felt pushed out. The food was so very good as well!

Great experience, will definitely be back!

Came for a bite before a friend and I saw Chicago. Definitely make a reservation. The dining room is very small so don’t be shocked!

The food and drinks were delicious

Food, service, speed and atmosphere were all great! Well priced for the area. It is small and very tight quarters, but other than that I would recommend! Its off the beaten path a little so it wasn't overly crowded.

A find if you are looking for a breakfast/brunch restaurant that isn’t a diner or coffee shop. A versatile menu with many options. Excellent service. Entrance is hard to find...behind the overhead sign!

The food & service were fantastic. The space was a little tight, so we felt like we were having breakfast with the couple next to us, but luckily - we were all friendly! Would definitely go back.

They seated us quickly. They took our order quickly. And then we sat, and we sat and we sat. They finally brought our food out. I asked for my fries well done. They were soggy and the greasiest fries I have had in a long time; maybe ever. My burger, which I asked for medium rare, was over cooked. They were supposed to check on a menu item for my 12-year-old grandson, and never got back to him with the answer, so when everyone else was served (there were 8 in our party), there was nothing for him. Even at that point, our server didn’t notice that one of his customers was without food.

Travelled over from England to see David Byrne’s American Utopia show, and wanted to take our Son, as we had eaten here before when we had been to see a show at New World Stages.
Food and service was just as good as time before; Devilled Eggs with Avocado and Prawn really good, Scallops for my main were excellent.
We liked the background jazz music, and the nice touch of old silent movies being played while you eat.
Really good end to what was a great night out in NYC!

Made a reservation quite far in advance and arrived early for it and was given a very uncomfortable and awkward table. Service was just ok, a little slow and haphazard. Food was just ok, nothing special. I wouldn’t go back.

This is my second time to The Blue Dog Cookhouse and it did not let me down. With so many places close by when I’m going out to eat in the city before seeing a show I usually don’t try a place too many times. But I really love The Blue Dog Cook House. It is very small but the food exceptional, the service is always prompt and friendly and the drinks are unique and always amazing. They offer a variety of options for all people and what is healthy doesn’t lack flavor. Love this place! If you haven’t been, GO!

This is a very different interesting place to eat. Unfortunately we were 3 people put at a table for 2 and it was very difficulty to fit even all the plates on the table...resulting in silverware falling on the floor. That said the food is different and delicious. I would certainly return. Make a reservation...the place is small. Friendly staff!

Awesome meal at a great little restaurant. Would definitely recommend. Reservation is a must. I would suggest it’s best for smaller groups no more than 5. Would definitely come back. Waitstaff was attentive and courteous. Pricing is very reasonable for a good non-chain NYC eatery.
