Ditch Plains - West Village Ratings and Reviews
Staying at a hotel down the street and was looking for a quick bite to eat without waiting in line. Management accommodated us quickly and personally took care of our table ( They had a surprise wedding party show up that wasn't planned for ).
Fire roasted oysters were excellent, I decided on the grilled chicken salad which was surprisingly wonderful with the lemon vinaigrette dressing. Side note: I don't always eat this healthy, but was on vacation and haven't had a chance to exercise lately. My wife splurged with the fish and chips and she said it was tasty.
The restaurant was empty at 12pm. The service was very good. The food was hit or miss. The fried shrimp deviled eggs were very good as were the tater tots. Everything went down hill from there. The fish tacos although crunch were tasteless. The nachos were very basic, and the pancakes were very small.
We went to a movie at the Film Forum a block away and came here for dinner. Not sure at 8:00 pm we were prepared for as dark a bar as this is. Lots of surfing movies and also sports. Not fine dining. The waitperson was nice and friendly and service was fine. Hard to read the menu in the dark. For two draft beers, a vietnamese wrap and two tacos with tax and tip $56. Not expensive but not a cheap eat. The tacos were great and the vietnamese wrap a bit on the tasteless side, but fresh. It came with a good sized and tasty green salad. I don't think we would go back, but the ambiance for the younger was good.
Disappponted. Everything was bland and under-seasoned. The service was not very enthusiastic and was unhelpful in ordering. The drinks were not impressive. I would not return, and judging from the restaurant being nearly empty at 8pm, I assume they struggle with repeat business.
I was excited to visit a Marc Murphy restaurant and found this location convenient to our hotel. My husband and I both had fried fish preparations--he had the fish and chips meal and I ordered the fish tacos. We each found our dish to be excellent, in taste and portion size. We would definitely visit again and recommend to others.
We want to move closer so we can come here all the time! Great ambiance and service. Went for the seafood but wound up having chicken burgers and hot dogs with mac and cheese (it was Memorial Day Weekend and as close as we were getting to a barbecue).
Only downside was the very small number of wines available by the glass.
Can't wait to go back
One of my favorite neighborhood joints for creative cocktails and comfort food. Service can be a bit slow at times, but otherwise top notch. The lobster mac & cheese is heaven in your mouth and there are so many great app options (bring a group to try them all).
I loved the food at this restaurant and it came highly recommended by friends. The one issue during my visit was, one person in our party had a shellfish allergy and we found out that all the food is fryed in the same fryolater oil as shrimp, so he could not really eat anything on the menu that was fried which was disappointing. We were planning to order the calamari or guacamole and chips and he normally would eat those no problem, but he could not touch them. He would have liked french fries but did not get those either. I would have assumed since a shellfish allergy is not an uncommon one, and they have so many friend items on the menu that they may separate the oils.
Average food for high price. And I'm a West village native of 11 years. Average service, had to ask for everything. TV sports bar vibe in what should be a nicer environment to reflect the feeling of Montauk, a place I visit frequently. Do not recommend compared to all the other choices in the neighborhood
This place used to be great. They have become more of a hot dog joint while raising their prices significantly. When I almost fell out of my chair at being charged SIX DOLLARS for an ICED TEA, I thought it was in error. "That's the West Village," responds the server. No, dude: it's how little you think of your customers. Been going here for 10+ years. No mas.
We went back to Ditch Plains after many years -- we missed the lobster roll and pear martini (no longer on the menu, alas!). The lobster roll was as we remembered it (except that it was served with French fries rather than sweet potato fries, in my view an improvement). The menu has changed, bu the quality remains.
Prices seems to go up and food was not very tasty as it has been in the past. Just because its summer and the restaurant is not crowded doesn't mean a drop in the quality of the food and a raise in price. Many brunch places make a bloody Mary or Mimosa from scratch and do not charge the same price as Ditch
