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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

What a gem of a restaurant. My friends and I had Saturday brunch. The food was amazing and the service exceptional. I enjoyed the challah French toast with orange yogurt and berries, and my friend had the most exquisite pancakes with berries. Looking forward to a return visit when I am back in NYC.

The Pienirli flatbread was delicious and so were the Gryo sliders. Unfortunately, the tomatoes in the Greek salad were tasteless.
