Another amazing meal. Creative menu and adventurous choices that are unfailingly delicious. There are few restaurants that I find consistently great. I’ve never had a bad or unpleasant meal here. The wait staff is a delight, and don’t miss the goat ribs or the mezcal margaritas.

The food was original and very tasty. We loved the perfect seasoning of the grilled octopus, the special sauce of the tuna crudo and from the mains the Branzino was outstanding but small to be a shared plate for two people.
Wine list was interesting, we tried the “interesting list” and were not disappointed for our choice.
What for us does not entirely work is the decor, may be we loved so much the old Art Deco restaurant that was here for many years, that is difficult to accept the new ambiance and grey decorations.

Every dish was unbelievably salty. We both woke up swollen the next day. Inexcusable. Lovely spot.
Does no one Check the food? Maybe they smoke so their taste buds are different. I’ve heard this happens.
However we will not return

Fifty is a really hidden gem in noisy West Village. Many Southern American inspired plates and many fish options which I liked. Unfortunately the waiter didn't fully take care of our table... we always had to look for him to ask something. This is only one but big complaint. Otherwise this place was perfect to bring someone special.

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.
