My second visit to Fifty and like the first, I WAS NOT disappointed. From the host at the front door to the bartender, bus boy/girl and server, everyone was friendly and accommodating. I was there with a group of 6 friends to catch-up and continue my birthday celebration. Some of us took advantage for the Restaurant Week menu, which I must say, had some amazing options which met everyone's expectations. For those that decided to order from the regular menu, their sentiments were the same! I highly recommend the Tempura Soft Shell Crab, it was delish, we ordered extra upon our first tasting! As for cocktails, the Watermelon Song was a hit! I will definitely be back!

I have dined out every evening of this restaurant week, so far the best restaurant that I have tried. The food is both very original (Ecuadoran chef) and excellent. We had the very originally cooked scallops, the black rice with shrimp and other meat and the goat ribs. Plus a dirty corn side order. Everything was delicious and really so original. Service was both professional and friendly. The only minus: the noise level is really high. But I still would return there. Congratulations to the chef and his team.

The service was wonderful, and our appetizers and dessert (salted flan) were quite tasty. I ordered my entree, sea bass with capers and olives, off of the restaurant week menu, and thought it was too charred tasting, overwhelming the bass itself. The Market G&T cocktail lacked flavor and was not very good, and I did not enjoy the sauvignon blanc by the glass. It was not dry enough and lacked flavor. We enjoyed the atmosphere, and the restaurant is close to Cherry Lane Theatre.

Fifty was absolutely amazing. From the service to the quality and unique taste of the food. It's marriage of south american spices and american cuisine is unmatched. Can't wait to go back.

This is a fantastic restaurant in Greenwich Village, just steps from the Cherry Lane Theater. Original, creative, delicious food with a Latin twist. Try the Burrata with Figs (amazing) and the Passion Fruit Yogurt dessert. Really an amazing place, can't recommend it highly enough.

What a lovely place! Such a beautiful setting on a quiet street - a hard thing to find in NYC. Our waiter was so helpful and friendly — suggesting our meal selections since there were many delicious choices. The simple, but ample, chopped salad was fresh and light with crispy ferro and the unique preparation of ceviche was deliciously topped with a lightly battered calamari. The red snapper cooked in banana leaves is absolutely delicious- it’s an explosion of fresh herbs, spices and perfectly prepared snapper. The beer braised goat ribs were tender and a generous portion. We will definitely be back and bring friends next time!

The most ridiculous price structure for cocktails I’ve ever encountered. Someone should rethink that. Beyond that the food was super. Ambiance could use a little warming up, I don’t recall any art on any of the bland, beige walls. Actually beige and brown everywhere. Boring. Good sound system. At some point during dinner, the mix took a nasty turns. Great jazz and standards veered towards rap and hip-hop. Huh? I’d go back for the food but not before busting chops about drinks.

This was our second visit and it did not disappoint! Food was terrific (we all had different entrees and shared different appetizers) and the friendly low-key waiters are a serious plus!
We sort of hope this place stays under the radar and doesn't get too "hot" as we seriously love it. Try the octopus appetizer and the goat ribs! And the black lobster risotto with Uni if they have it. Congratulations FIFTY on a terrific job.

We had a couple of people in from out of town and the four of us got together at 50 restaurant. It was the second time we’d eaten there, the last time was also with a couple from out of town. The area is charming, the quintessential village vibe from yesteryears, cobblestone streets and quiet backstreet feel. As a NYer it gives me pride to be able to host friend’s from out of town in such a neighborhood. The food is excellent and different from your typical Italian or Japanese or whatever, the servers are all so charming and kind, the food came out quickly, and everything tasted great. It’s both romantic and casual but has a special vibe to it. We closed the restaurant and not once did we feel rushed out. Highly recommended.

Had an amazing Mother's Day Brunch at Fifty Restaurant! It's a beautiful space on one of the loveliest blocks in NYC. The service, drinks, and food were all phenomenal. It's the type of place you can spend a few hours at and still feel comfortable. We tried a variety of items, including delicious cocktails, empanadas, ricotta toast + eggs, lobster benedict, omelette, pancakes, and chocolate cake with real whipped cream. It was quite the feast! I would love to return for dinner and check out that menu and experience... looking forward to returning!

FIFTY has to be one of the most underrated restaurants in NYC. No joke. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful date night and the service and food were spectacular. I rarely write reviews but felt this was warranted as the restaurant needs more people to know about it. Seriously, go!

This was our first visit to Fifty. We had asked to sit side by side and they had noted that and accommodated us, which was great. We had cocktails, wine, starters, mains, and dessert. The starters of deviled egg and octopus were wonderful. I had a salmon main and my wife had an empanada from the starter menu. Once again, it was nicely done, as was the dessert. Our cocktails were well made and we had some wine by the glass to accompany it all. The space is nice, but it got a bit loud as it filled up (we arrived at 730 pm). The wait staff was great and very attentive -- no waiting for help, water glasses kept full, etc. Our only issue that we'd note is the food was coursed out very quickly. We had hardly started our cocktail when the starters were on the table and then the mains shortly after. To be fair, we didn't ask otherwise, but we often expect a cocktail is something to savor before the meal prior to food/wine, with a bit of a gap between the starter and main, etc. That aside, we'd recommend this restaurant if you are in the area and we would return as well. Prices are pretty good for this part of NYC and quality of food. Having eaten at many high end restaurants, we always feel like food this good at this price is a great deal.
