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.

Margs where fantastic, they put a decent kick and the amount of fresh lime juice was a differentiator on the spicy margs.
Everything else was pretty bang on for West Village. Good spot for any spur of the moment West Village dinning.

Great food but they need more servers outside. It took about 40 minutes to get our food order (he forgot that we didn’t order the food). Food was good but not sure that made up for the wait.

I came here for brunch on a saturday morning and sat outside, which is decorated really nicely with vines and plants. The tables are covered and have heaters. Food was really yummy but a little pricey (of course, it's New York brunch, so to be expected). The only real negetive was the service, which was very slow. If you're okay with a "european style" pace of service, I'd still recommend.

I recently moved into the Chelsea / West Village area and have had Extra Virgin on my list of places I wanted to try. Unfortunately, Extra Virgin did not live up to my expectations. The music was absolutely blasting inside the restaurant to the point where I could not hear what my friend was saying directly across the table. The music was unnecessarily loud and made the meal unenjoyable because I was shouting across the table. The food was sub - par ; expensive and not really worth it. If I were to come back here, I would just go for a drink and not a full entrée as I didn't think the menu or food was anything to rave about.
