Booked through OpenTable and told them that when we arrived. Later we got a msg from OpenRent asking why we hadn't turned up.
Ordered 2 Prawn appetisers, only 1 turned up so had to wait from them to make and bring the 2nd.
Ordered rib, potatoes and brocoli.
Rib and broccoli arrived. Had to ask again for potatoes. Rib was fantastic but broccoli was cold, not even warm, COLD.
Complained and they didn't even offer to take the rib away and start again so we ended up with a 3 course main meal; rid-potatoes-brocoli. An apology but no attempt to make amends or offer any reduction.
The place has potential but would not recommend under the current management.
We went on thanksgiving, and had the most delicious turkey with roasted Brussel sprouts and all the trimmings. Would definitely recommend
Nice little underground speakeasy club in Soho with good BBQ menu.
Picked this spot to meet up with an old high school buddy. Looking for a good steak/meat spot and unfortunately this wasn’t the best. The brisket was super tough, I was expecting it to be much more tender. Sides were of but the drinks were over priced for the size they are. Don’t think I’ll recommend to my friends. Not quite worth the money.
Cool vibe good bbq. Kind of a limited menu, if you know that going In you’re fine
I would recommend Holy Ground to a friend for drinks and atmosphere, but not for dinner. When a $30 piece of fish comes out burnt, is served anyway, and the waiter is nowhere to be found after it is delivered, I think that at least an apology could be expected. (There was none.) And lest the staff say that the fish was meant to be served in that blackened manner (without the seasoning of blackened fish), the same dish was served at our table that night to my friend, and was decidedly NOT burnt or blackened.
great vibe, cozy, limited menu and definitely a bit pricey!
Delicious food and cocktails. I took my boyfriend here to celebrate his graduation. Portions are big, we shared the beef rib with a few sides and rib appetizer. I’m not the biggest meat eater though so while I thought everything tasted incredible, I feel like there isn’t much option for someone who’d prefer a lighter meal. My boyfriend loved it though so worth it. Service was great!
Small but extremely tasty menu. Very quiet for dinner on the weekend which is fine with me!
It was my husband’s birthday and we made a reservation attesting that.
However, they did not do anything about that. Not even a dessert with a message. Nothing.
The food is amazing!!!!
Ambiance is very cool. We loved that.
Overall experience was great.
Will definitely be back.
Food dry, almost inedible.
Spare ribs dry but we ate
Wagyu so dry that no one could it. We told the waiters. Sure enough dish appeared on bill!!!
Beef rib ok
Great service, nice vibe! a touch pricey but not out of line for the area.
Most underrated restaurant in NYC
Bartender and waiter could not be bothered. Hostess was pleasant though. Last call was 8:45pm, though they never announced it. Big disappointment. They should’ve closed for the day if they didn’t want to provide service.
Service was attentive and very friendly! But that’s about it. The food and wine were average (had the ribeye), with a very high price tag. I had been looking forward to dining here for a while but left feeling very disappointed.
One of the coolest restaurants to be in. Has this 1920’s Chicago-esque vibe. They play old time music and you sit in these super comfy red vinyl seats. I can’t compare it to any dining experience before. The beef rib is amazing. As well as the spicy broccoli. Skip the seafood — the salmon tartare is underwhelming for price. This is a MEAT place. Order the pork shoulder (if they don’t run out). Ribs are amazing as is the Mac & cheese. I will definitely go again!
Love the coziness of it, excellent food and we had a knowledgeable waitress.
This place is one of the most unique restaurants in all of Tribeca. Very cool. And very good food.
We waited FOREVER for our food, sitting underneath an air conditioner that blew freezing air on top of us. There was a 35 minute gap between our first and second courses. The ambiance was...weird, and I felt like I left a beautiful NYC evening (rare) and went into a dungeon.
This place is awesome. It's a neighborhood gem in every sense of the word.
We love Holy Ground. A bit overpriced but still enjoyed each dish. Service was a little slow and removed but fine overall.
Best meats and flavor in Manhattan
We made a big ask of this pretty small restaurant for a birthday celebration. They came through with fantastic food (the ribeye is a must-try), super accommodating service, and indulgence of our large group dynamic. We’ve also been for late-night drinks before, which are equally fantastic. They have a surprisingly nuanced selection of after-dinner drinks as well!
Loved everything about this place! Food, vibe, service was on point! Will definitely be back!
Some place I'll definitely be returning to again and again. Amazing food, great drinks, cool decor & very friendly and helpful service.
Good good. Bit pricy, also bit spicy. But I’d go back. Cool decode and nice musicz
The food was outstanding! Everything is prepared well! The menu has something for everyone. Love the Salmon tartare with the dramatic chip, the Ribeye is a good choice and will definitely feed three happily! The cocktails were covered what everyone likes, the Coco Darling was sweet with a kick! Would definitely come back to try the rest of the menu!
The ribs were amazing, as were the brussel sprouts. The wine was very overpriced. The food was pricey too but not as wild. Nice servers. Kind of an old basement feel.
We had been looking forward to going to Holy ground for a while now. We got there at 9 and they were already out of a few of the things we wanted to have. Heres what we got: winter citrus salad: very small lacking greens. Flavors were very good but should have been about 25% larger for the price maybe add more greens? The pork belly- very good. Probably my favorite thing we ate. It was thick and topped with chiccaron and herbs. We then had the broccoli which was delicious and the scallops we got 3. A couple sharing 3 scallops is pretty rude but whatever they were very good. For the meats we had the butcher steak and 1/2lb brisket. The steak was good. Cooked perfect sliced and had a spicy chimichurri sauce. The brisket was dry and the flavor of the smoke reminded me of church. If you're looking for bbq there are many good places in NYC idk if this is the one. For dessert we ordered the special which the waiter came back and informed us they were out of. Ok. We got the sundae. The sundae was fine. Basic vanilla and chocolate ice cream. The "star" was the toffee fudge sauce that was brought out in a small metal cup drizzled sparingly and then whisked back off into the kitchen??? Why??? The only way we got to enjoy it was by scraping it off the sides of the glass. They really should have left it on the table or put the sauce on in the back.
Great place. Highly recommend everything on the menu.
So good I went two night in a row! Delicious meat, apps, and sides. Great service.
Ambience is very speak-easy-esque. You have to go down a flight and a half of stairs, but very cool.
We had a great time at Holy Ground. The atmosphere has a very cool, old-time feel to it. The food is very good, especially the prawns, beef rib, and crispy potatoes. And the service was friendly and efficient. We will certainly be going back and be recommending it to our friends.
We loved our dinner experience at Holy Ground!
We found the mood of the restaurant to be so genuine!
The food was truly delicious!
We highly recommend it!!
We will be back!
Fantastic food and great service
Had a very cool speak easy vibe with great music and ambiance. But everything was overpriced they charged $19 for a vodka soda... good was good, but overpriced.
Very cool place! Speakeasy vibes and very good food. Drinks were on point as well. No complaints here. Enjoyed our meal a lot and will definitely be back.
The service was horrendous. I barely saw my waiter. They were out of multiple staple menu items at 8pm. They gave us a hassle about how we were seated for an 8 person party. The food was teetering on the brink of edible. Save your money, skip this one.
This place had a great vibe and great food. The music and lighting created a cool atmosphere. Service paired with great food makes this a must.
Good food. Service was good. Collard greens were extremely salty. I’m not one to send back food, but should have. I assume it was just that batch.
My boyfriend got the waygu brisket and loved it. They were out of both of the items I wanted, which was disappointing and considering it was Valentine’s Day and all, I would have guessed they’d have made extra. Ended up with the salmon- which was okay. Not cooked correctly, but leeks were god.
I’d try again just for confirmation on the things lacking.
Awful experience. Food came out freezing cold and was sent back more than 3 times. Tried a new order and had the same issue over and over. The host was very nice and polite but that’s unacceptable service and quality especially at a high end and expensive restaurant. We have emailed the restaurant directly with complaints and did not hear back.
