Food just okay and pricy. Would not recommend the SPAGHETTI A LA CHITARRA dish.
I have frequented this establishment for many years when it was formerly Ousia and now as Hudson West Kitchen + Craft Bar. The owners have done a great job maintaining their level of excellence with their new menu. I was so in love with the food that I ordered somethings twice and ordered more to take home.
I must also add that the bartender is a true mixologist and I enjoyed the Oracle drink. Glenn, our waiter, has great energy and is very inviting and attentive.
Lastly, the chef has obviously done an excellent job and she is such a sweet person. Thank you Hudson West Kitchen + Craft Bar for making our day.
Fabulous food and smart, friendly staff.
I had a truly wonderful experience at Hudson West Kitchen. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful. Everything I ordered was delicious. The charred broccoli and lemon gnocchi were both amazing. And the branzino was unbelievably fresh and flavorful. My server Glenn was fantastic. He was so friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. He did everything possible to make my dinner perfect. When I couldn't decide on a dessert, I let him choose for me. He brought me the brownie with the salted caramel ice cream - which was so brilliant. I look forward to going back very soon!
Great service and food. I would recommend Hudson West Kitchen + Craft Bar to my friends.
So glad they kept some of the Ousia favorites. The "Far West Side" is my go-to cocktail!
We have been going to this restaurant since it opened (Ouisa) and loved it, last night was the first time we ate "Hudson West Kitchen" it was GREAT!
Food is always good, service is great, owners are personable and involved.
See you soon!
Nice expansion of the menu with the name change. Always enjoy coming here. Not sure why they won't take a reservation for outdoors. The answer from the maitre d was that the seating is limited and what happens if it rains? I don't get it---take as many reservations as you have for the limited outdoor seats and if it rains---the place is more than half empty--move us indoors.
Wonderful menu and outstanding service
The vibe was great and the food was even better.
Wow! So glad I was able to go back to this establishment again post their update. I was so excited to try out their new menu for a date night and the experience was even better than I was expecting! The staff is friendly and helpful, the service was very smooth, and the food was incredible. 100/10 recommend for a date night, special occasion, or to go to just because you’re in the mood for a great setting with delicious food. Already looking forward to my next meal!
Hudson West is a great new take on Ousia! I was a regular, and now I will be coming even more. They have a great new feel on their establishment that brings it more to life than ever. Seems like a great spot to have a nice sit down dinner, or even for during the day to do the "NYC brunching" that everyone loves so much.
The bar was great - cocktails on point. The food was excellent. The experience was awesome. We had such a great time. Happy the rebranding is successful and bringing this restaurant to new level!
I wanted to check out Hudson West after the remodeling and was very pleased with the experience. The staff continues to show excellent service and the food remains top notch. I will continue to recommend this establishment to friends and family, knowing that the staff will provide the upmost service and quality food. I look forward to another outing in the near future.
Hudson west was amazing. The food was so tasty. Service was over the top, everyone treats you like family. The blackened salmon and the mussels are a must try. The cocktail program is very unique and well executed. Loved my time at Hudson west. Absolutely spectacular!!!
The kitchen needs a lot of help. The bread was stale and the calamari were a disaster from concept to execution. My pasta was lumped together so clearly from a box.
Wonderful experience. Great new menu. Drinks as good as ever. Treat you like family
Food was cold…sucked. Was hopeful going in.
Great experience. Excellent service. Drinks and food were top notch and . Highly recommend.
We really always enjoy dining here even though it’s a little bit of a trip to get to the restaurant from our apartment. I am not sure what to expect with the change but we will certainly give it a try. For what it’s worth I think the owners would be wise to offer a little incentive for previous good customers to return maybe a glass of wine or something.
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here, celebrating a special occasion. And we were made to feel special. Highly recommend Ousia. You will not be disappointed!
I liked it. I usually do as I have been coming here since it opened. Everything was as expected. The food was good. Though my date did grumble that the lamb chops were not seasoned enough. And the flatbread I ordered was anything but flat. It did taste good. The service was gracious though could have been a little friendlier. Like I said, I do like the place. The only thing that struck me was the bill. I am never one to complain about a high amount. However, I was surprised. Yes, the prices have gone up with no noticeable change in quality. I guess the times. I do hate to say it, but I will think twice about going back. There are high priced restaurants that are better.
Ousia never disappoints. The food is always spectacular. Particularly good are the hummus and octopus. Everything is fresh and quality. Plus, there is plenty of room inside their gorgeous dining area.
Fantastic fresh Mediterranean food. Beautiful restaurant with large bar. Friendly and helpful staff. Will be coming more often. Steak, roasted chicken and branzino were all delicious. Mussels and charred octopus fantastic! Espresso martinis and baklava for dessert.
Absolute favorite restaurant!!! A must go to in New York City!!!!
Had a lovely dinner with friends from out of town. The food was delicious although the gyro steak slider entree had little meat to it. That is the only critique I would have for an overall wonderful experience. The place is beautiful and spotless and the staff is very friendly. The Ousia Mule is a great drink, try it!
When a trip to Greece seems off in the distant future, this is a good distraction. Ousia serves delicious Greek/Mediterranean food. It is now our go-to place when we want delicious dips (with heavenly pita), yummy salads (try the kale and chicken salad) tasty lamb chops, octopus, etc. There are many good choices on the menu. And the baklava is a amazing. Service is welcoming and attentive.
Intimate retirement dinner. Well attended-to, food was delicious and the service was spectacular.
As usual, the team at Ousia knocked it out of the ballpark. A last minute change to our numbers saw them dealing with 10 of us on a reservation for 4! Everything was handled with grace and charm. Service was on point and the food was as good as it always is. Little wonder this is a solid neighbourhood gem. Thank you for another great meal.
It was great
The food was excellent and the watching the sunset from the outside seating was beautiful.
Flatbreads and food for sharing are amazing, one of the best humus that I ever had.
we always enjoy ousia---i think they would benefit from some kind of outdoor 'upgrade'
They need more vegan options but overall an excellent experience. Nice wine selection.
Great experience! Happy to have such a place by my home. Prices are more like $$$, not $$.
We were celebrating a 70th birthday. I had mentioned in my reservation that we’d like something special but the birthday lady and I had to drop numerous hints to have them even put a candle in a baklava. Our service was lackluster. Food was average. Cocktails were good. Don’t know that I’ll return.
Love this place!
A wonderful restaurant. Modern spacious decor, perfect cocktails, delicious food. We love it.
Lunch with my sister after two years of COVID
Food, ambience, cocktails, service - everything is TOP NOTCH! One of my favorite places in NYC so we’re so excited to see Ousia back in action! Cannot wait to return, again and again!
