    New year’s eve dinner for two. Pros: very nice space , with beautiful greenery and cute decor, no cover for New year’s eve table. Cons: Food: everything we ordered, with the exception of the pizza, was overly-salted/ seasoned. Ambiance: the table we were at was drafty due to the front door kept open all throughout our dinner. We left because we got too cold. Also, desert we had, calzone with Nutella and berries, had one strawberry on top and no other berries, so I thought the description was misleading.

    I made reservations for my fiancé’s birthday which landed on the same Sunday. The reservation was for a party of 6. I took an Uber there just to find out it was closed with no prior notification. This was extremely embarrassing and disappointing.

    Service was severely lacking. Waited at the bar for 30 minutes before we were sat and the bartender never even looked in our direction. Everyone sitting next to us at the bar said it took an hour for them to get a drink. Then once we sat down it took over 45 minutes to get our drinks. The food arrived before our drinks did - we finished our apps before the manager came up and apologized but did nothing to relieve us of our anger or get us our drinks. I’ve been here many times before as I think the food is great, but I will never come back here again due to the awful and slow service.

    the small mezze is $26 and a $9 charge for more bread. Idk kinda overpriced for BREAD given the mezze was not enough and no one told me bread was extra. Cute vibe tho wish there was more filling vegan options

    Large, energetic, bright space with a live band playing for Saturday brunch. Noise level was not so overwhelming to prevent my friend and me from catching up after not having seen each other since before the pandemic. Very fast turnaround between ordering and food placement and a wonderfully accommodating waitress who allowed us to banter for an exceptional amount of time before ordering. Round ball croquettes with crème were best item we ordered. Certainly recommended!

    Great food and service, but the music was LOUD. Our table and another table had both asked if it could be turned down (we were outside) and management said all speakers were connected so couldn't. Hard to hear the couple that we were with and was too loud for the baby's ears. And while I love Jay-z, he's not my go to for brunch music , especially at full volume.

    Eh… I’ve been before several times and was very excited. We reserved an indoor table and we’re sat outside. The heat lamp was broken. We were celebrating a friends birthday and it was a just a let down. Poor service and meh experience from a place that we were excited about. Too bad

    We came on a Sunday night and were promptly seated at our reservation time. The staff was so friendly and nice, the food was delicious, and ambiance is unlike anything in NYC. Huge space with beautiful plants, lighting and decor. I would highly recommend it to others. It was a chill place to have a Sunday dinner and we appreciated the vibe and good food. There's something for everyone on the menu. I think the bad reviews may have come when they were understaffed, but no complaints from my experience.

    Waited outside on line for about 30 minutes despite the fact that we had a reservation. Then waited inside over 45 minutes for table to be ready. Waited about 20 minutes after sitting for server to come to our table for our order. Food and ambiance was great, not sure if I’d return due to the wait and restaurant organization.

    I had been waiting & wanting to come to Fandi Mata for months! And I'm so excited to have finally made it (especially with the Dia de Los Muertos festivities). It met and exceeded my expectations from service, food & drinks. We ordered the Sabrosa & Grass is Greener cocktails (several rounds), and ate the tuna tartare, scallop tostada, margherita pizza, and hallumi fries. ALL OF IT WAS DELICIOUS from beginning to end. Our server, Morena, was helpful with our decision-making and was super sweet! Can't wait to come back! 10/10

    I’ve been to Fandi Mata a few times, the food is good and if you come during the day the service is also good. However, will not come again on. Saturday night or any peak time at night. The restaurant is disorganized and overwhelmed, with poor service to match. Drinks took 20 minutes, meals came out at different times, to the point where some diners were done before another meal came and the even those with same entrees received them 15 minutes apart. It was a mess. The short: Come for the dips at happy hour, leave before it gets crowded.

    We ate on the terrasse and it was very nice!! The little round tables are a little too small for two people, but other than that the outdoor seating area is quite nice. Fun place, cool atmosphere. Will return most definitely!! Oh, btw the lamb flatbread was insanely good - even for that alone, I'll return 3 times a day!!

    Was reviewed as one of the best brunch spots in nyc so expectations were high and we were disappointed. Ambiance was great, lots of plants, soaring ceilings, live music. But food was mediocre, mimosas lacked alcohol.

    The service was absolutely terrible. People only were seated if they complained about waiting too long - we took this approach and finally got our table by 9pm (reservation was at 8:15). Took 30 minutes for anyone to take our order. Food came out really fast, but all our apps and mains came at the same time. Drinks did not come until after we were finished with food (and my drink was wrong). Our waiter totally ignored our table - a different waitress ended up bringing our drinks/check. No one apologized or addressed the issues. Would never go back.

    Very rushed experience and sitting outside on the sidewalk did not give us a chance to experience the amazing indoor ambiance. Food was good but limited menu options for Brunch. Items came out as they were ready with no consideration of our pacing, mains were not served at the same time and dips came at the same time as one of the mains. They had a stated 90 minute turnaround but they had us in and out in 30 mins.

    Overall a lovely expierence, food was delicious but service suffered. We waited for each plate quite long and even received one cold. And as soon as we received our check we were asked to leave due to upcoming reservations which felt rude given that we would’ve loved to have another drink but we’re instead rushed out because of their poor management.

    I was very excited to try Fandi Mata for Brunch after seeing photos of the place and reading the menu. The food and ambiance certainly did not disappoint. However, the service received was lacking in many ways. We put in our beverage order and the drinks did not arrive until about 15 minutes after (none of the three drinks were complicated to make). We also had to ask again for a coffee which was forgotten in our initial order. The food did not take long to arrive and it came out fresh from the Kitchen which was much appreciated. After the food came out, we otherwise were ignored the entire time by the waitstaff. No one offered to clear our plates, our waiter was visibly chatting to other employees and customers at the bar, and we overhead a table behind us who’s food order had been entirely forgotten. After having finished our meal and sitting for about an hour we finally requested the check from the waiter. The check was not brought out, and the waiter had clearly forgotten my request, so I had to ask another member of the team again. While I appreciate the time to chat with the other guests at the table without interruption, we would have expected more service than we received.
