The environment was beautiful and very sweet - outdoor seating was comfortable and the heat lamps worked wonders. Food was delicious and service was speedy given how crowded the restaurant was. Would recommend to anyone looking to eat out in this neighborhood.

Ive been going here for years so: These guys are pros, and the are killing it in Covid Times. Super friendly, attentive service, the outside seating is comfy, warm (heaters!) and quiet, and the food is always top notch American Comfort. They really know what they are doing. Get the fries with the gorgonzola, obvi, and their bloody marys are pretty dang tasty. Go, enjoy!

The food was good. Appetizer was the best part, a nice artichoke salad with a variety of tasty veggies on the plate. Fish was creatively presented and had a good sauce but a little fussy. My husband enjoyed his lamb, which was very hearty. But the prices were ridiculous, particularly the wine prices. $70 for a bottle that retails for uber 15 is patently absurd.

Service was awful - ignored for the first 20 minutes of being seated and we had to ask for water. The food was fine but I ordered a salad add shrimp and the shrimp was just awful - tiny, flavorless shrimp that hadn’t been deveined. Won’t be back anytime soon.

Server couldn’t care less - made us feel like we were an absolute annoyance to him. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I don’t need you to be thrilled when taking our order, but somewhere between I’m ruining your day by ordering and being polite would be better than what we got.

The only issue was we waited a very long time to put orders in, and then very very long time to receive drinks or food.

The food was surprisingly good, which was great given how expensive everything was. However the service was slow and the check-in staff was not very polite after one person in our party was late. The lateness was on us, that wasn’t the issue, but the level of side eye and judgement we received because of it wasn’t necessary since their tardiness was also out of our control. (Note: the restaurant doesn’t seat until your entire party has arrived, which is fine, but good to know in advance). The music level was very high. I would recommend this place for birthdays or as a pre-going-out spot, but would not go back just for dinner.

We waited for our outdoor table way to long. Even though we had reservations. The food was just ok and the drinks took forever to come out. Our server was really nice and the staff cleaning and busting the tables were nice as well. The decor was pretty too.

They are doing construction at the brownstone alongside the restaurant. Extremely loud and lots of sawdust about. They were very gracious to accommodate seat changes.

I have never encountered ruder staff. They did not check in, literally ignored and refused to acknowledge us. Did not ask us if we wanted refills on our drinks. Rolled their eyes. It completely ruined the experience

We were rudely rushed out of our table before we finished our meal and drinks. We were only at the table for 62 mins. Staff has a lot to learn about customer service. Hostess came to our table and was not polite, after we expressed she was rude and that they didn’t deserve the gratuity they put on our check she came back and to the table with a new check, slammed it on the table and told us we needed to leave. Extremely rude. Will not be coming back. Food is great though.

I love Extra Virgin. It is my to-go place for fun, comfort food with great drinks, and great atmosphere. However, for some reason, the server wasn't in the mood for us. We were a party of 8 and things could get complicated when placing orders. There was confusion when the food came, and the waiters kept bringing orders at different times instead of all at once. So some of us were eating while the others were waiting. Having said that, the main waitress was friendly, but the people that brought the plates were rude and to us, they seemed very angry. This is the first time in my many visits to Extra Virgin that I've experienced this lack of service. Perhaps, it was because we were a party of 8 and the "tip" was going to be added to the check? We will not let this blurb stop us from coming back.

Where else will you be able to have a celebrity chef visit the table multiple times AND be hospitable enough to hang out for the toast? World class personalities and world class cuisine. Loved the experience! So did my first date!

Ate outside - servers were busy on a Friday night with nice weather but very helpful. Food was good, portions are normal sized which is a plus and drinks were great. Felt very safe although did not go inside.

Food was excellent - highly recommend the extra virgin chicken. Cocktails were also very good. Music was loud, but that made for a fun and energetic ambiance. I will be returning!
