Everything was very delicious and overall great experience
Amazing. The Manager Jorge was actually our server because they were short stuffed this evening. He suggested the best food and wines. Great experience
Had a great time. Our server was Joy and she was amazing! The outdoor space was nice. Spread out. Fire pits. Good vibes.
When we got there our table wasn't ready we had to wait about 20 min on the sidewalk but the staff was so sweet. They gave us prosecco and as soon as we sat down they brought us a complimentary appetizer that was amazing and then surprised us with a complimentary Key lime tart that was outstanding!
Bummer it closed. Small but varied menu well-executed.
Made a reservation for 4 for outdoor seating. When we all arrived, we were told they had nothing available outside (even though we had our OpenTable reservation). We were told we could sit inside, but refused. We agreed to wait for a table to open up and were luckily seated 15 min later. Once we were seated the food and service were fine, but it was really disappointing to reserve an outdoor table and arrive to be asked to sit inside during a pandemic. This was a first time attempting to dine "out" with friends and I hesitate to reserve here again.
I ordered the burger, it wasn't seasoned and the fries were hard!! I did not want to bother with sending food back as there was a time limit on the table. But the ambiance was nice and service was good.
We’ve always liked City Mouse, but this time the waiter asked my date to put her mask back on while he took the order. She’s Chinese. This is ok. What is NOT ok is that he did not ask me to do it. Nor did he ask others around us (mostly caucasians). I am Asian also but “brown”. This was very insensitive, and why enforce the rules on one and not others around you.
While I loved their outdoor dining space, I was disappointed by both the service level and the food. Food was somewhat mediocre, thus, price felt overpriced.
Such a nice place to have a brunch w friends
Food lacked depth of flavor - especially with ingredients that typically has depth. Server seems impatient.
I’m in my 60’s and this seemed like a restaurant for people younger than me. Didn’t like wine selection but the rigatoni was some of the best I’ve ever had.
Had reservations and they seated us 20 minutes after our reservation time. Service was awful but the ambiance and vibes were good. Drinks were yummy but wouldn’t recommend if you’re on a tight time schedule.
Food and Drinks were great, along with excellent service. Also they have a great outdoor seating area with an awesome fire pit.
Their food quality is decent! Service 0! Once we got there we were told that we would have to leave within 60 to 90 minutes! This should have been disclosed upon my confirmation. I even had called them to confirm my reservation and they said nothing About that.
Our server was inattentive and absent. I understand that it’s COVID but I think it’s still appropriate to check in on how your guests are doing, especially refilling their water. Wings and burger was good but the seared chicken was honestly awful; it had the texture of fish which is extremely unsettling. Was the chicken sous vided for too long? I did not spend $24 for an entree I could’ve made better at home. Drinks were good tho
Below average — wanted to try something new in Fulton Market. Feels like a WeWork food court. There are many better options.
The fire pits will help as it starts to get colder and people want to eat outside.
Great patio area. Prices are about right for the area. Smaller menu but the dishes they cook are done well.
Perfect place to have brunch if you want to be away and not be around too many people.
The menu is very small due to Covid. The ambiance is overhyped on IG
Came here for the first time for brunch. Has an awesome ambiance, quiet but still lively. Staff was all great and friendly. Drinks were yummy. Food was a bit disappointing, was definitely good but nothing outstanding. Would come back for an easy brunch but not for special occasions
Excellent food and service. Very Covid conscious procedures and table distances
Food was fine, but the service was subpar.
Service was amazing and the food was great too! Will return!
The food was delicious. The tequila drink with hibiscus and chicken wings were standouts. They were very conscious of covid requirements - tables very spaced out, staff wearing masks and waiting for us to put on our masks before they approached the table. Thank you for providing an environment where we could feel safe and comfortable to dine during covid!
always love to come to this neighborhood gem!!! :)
I have enjoyed City Mouse in the past so we delighted when we could get an outdoor table for dinner AND the weather held! The host and service team worked hard to make the evening pleasant in spite of the COVID constraints. The cocktails were delicious and the food amazing. I highly recommend the Sangria and Salmon. We will definitely be back.
Good food. Good service
We went for birthday brunch for our 8 year old; they were so sweet to bring out a mocktail for her and her sister as soon as we sat down. Normally, I don't have high hopes for hotel restaurants but my husband and I both loved what we ordered; prices were also much lower than expected. Loved the outdoor seating and they made us feel safe and comfortable. The server and staff were very attentive.
Way too expensive
Everything was great from the food, to the service.
Fantastic food, equally matched service. They did a great job with social distancing-our server out on a new pair of gloves every time he approached a table. The food was quick, fresh and delicious. As soon as we arrived (with our dog), they brought out water glasses and a bottle for us and a bowl of water for our dog. City Mouse is one of our favorite places in the city, whether for drinks or a full on meal, it hasn’t disappointed us yet and it’s still going strong!
Food was good and patio was nice and spacious. Enjoyed my dinner
Great brunch outdoors! In the shade too across the entire patio which is awesome!
The food and drinks were very good, but we were not given a ton of information about when the kitchen was closing. Luckily our waiter was able to add our dinner order at the last minute.
Very nice patio, with a good vegetarian and vegan option
We arrived at 8pm on a Friday. Last call for food was 8:30. Then when we tried to order drinks after 8:30 we were told last call was at 8:30. Lame! Food was good but I don't really need to go back.
Lemon chicken wings were very good - nice spot for apps and some drinks
It was a nice day to eat outside. The food was good the pancakes were great and the hash browns and burgers
