Beauty & Essex- New York
Went there on a Saturday night with a friend before heading out for an event. They sat us and we ordered wine and a started and only after notified us that they were not making pizza for the evening. That is not only the reason we went to the restaurant but also the primary entree item for dinner. Given this we got up and left. From a service perspective they should have informed us earlier if they were not going to be making entrees that evening.
Service was phenomenal and extremely attentive, but I felt the food was lacking in creativity. It was nice to see the spaghetti come out in the cheese wheel though. Its a nice place if you want to have a conversation around 7pm dinner time where youre not shouting to be heard; as it gets later i do notice more people appearing and the atmosphere becomes livelier.
I don't want to kill this place and the service was really excellent but I was really looking forward to this dinner as I've heard a lot of good things about their weekend brunch. Overall, the experience was "Meh". I get that they are going for that East Village drabby chic look but if I'm dropping $150 on a dinner date, I don't expect to be sitting in chairs I used in grade school.
I'll double back some weekend for the brunch and hopefully I can write a better review.
It was chill af
Was excited to try this place. The wait staff seemed very nice, but also very inexperienced. It took us 20 minutes before we could even order a drink. That's fine, since we weren't in a rush and I was excited to try the food. Unfortunately their signature dish - the roast chicken - was terribly bland. Even the jus they serve with it was bland. We also had the carbonara, again based on the fact that it was meant to be one of the restaurant's specialties. It had more flavor than the chicken, but it was served cold. I was super disappointed because this place looks great and the guy who I think was the owner was very nice. I might try them again for brunch but it's difficult with such good options in the neighborhood.
Terrible service: 3 tables were occupied and yet the server couldn't be bothered with the basics (water, to bring a spoon with ice cream, know what was in the dishes). At one point, she admitted she'd never tried the food but had eaten the dish we were asking about elsewhere and it was good there, so it should be good here...huh?!
The Signature dish was chicken: I've had better chicken at roadside carts. They bring out the bird roasted on a large platter with feet attached. First it's kinda disgusting to see. Second it was totally dry, tasted like rubber and they bring juice on the side which does nothing for taste or tenderness. Fries were great however. So there's that.
Please avoid, even if they offer 10,000 points! With a city this rich in choices, don't waste your money, but more importantly, don't waste an evening here.
The signature dish Chicken with french fries and salat was very good.
It was very cold due to AC, but the staff very kind and turned it off.
A bit loud and noisy.
The lights was low to the point where it was difficult to see what was on the plate
Fun brunch atmosphere, cute and fun staff, a great start to our Pride weekend celebrations!
Service was incredible, food came out very quickly but we were not rushed out! Get the gelato after your meal!
Ambiance and music was great, server was good, but the food and drinks were ehh. My French toast was runny, even after I asked for a new, crispier one. The mimosas tasted a bit watered down too. I wouldn't recommend.
Excellent food, ambiance, and service. This is by far, one of our favorite spots in the East Village.
Great food and service. Music way too loud for an early dinner.
What a sleeper hit!!! Came for a mellow Sunday brunch and stayed 4 hours that turned into Sunday Funday! Mostly because we ate at the bar and the mixologist (better than a bartender), Wolfe was out of control awesome! This is on the short list to return soon
Had a great time in here - attentive and friendly waiter, delicious food and plenty of mimosas. Will definitely be back for brunch again!
Great food and service!
Went here for my cousin's 30th birthday brunch and participated in the bottomless brunch. Everyone really enjoyed their food and the staff was super friendly! Very generous about alcohol and constantly coming over to check on us/make sure our glasses were full. I really loved the ambiance and decor in the restaurant, as well, and would definitely go back!
Overall very impressed by decor, atmosphere, flavors of dishes down to execution. Service was on point and the lust pizza, carbonara and rigatoni bolognese were mind blowing! Will definitely be back and of course recommend. It's the perfect spot to get gelato and a bottle of wine and enjoy the weather with the doors open without being outside!
We came here for a late Sunday brunch with a reservation for 10. We were wonderfully accommodated and practically had the entire place to ourselves. Do not skip on the brunch pizza ... It's wonderful!
Wonderful brunch ! We went within the first week of opening, so it wasn't too crowded yet. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the decor is adorable. It's totally affordable, too. Can't wait to go back!
Bruch!!!!! 30 bucks all you can drink plus great food!!!!! Wow! Wow cash only
I love whole roast chicken, and have tried many versions in NYC. I would rate Nobody Is Perfect's version quite highly. It's a good (though not great) chicken, cooked properly and served in its entirety (unlike some fancy places that show you--but do not serve you-- the whole bird). The jus that comes with is fine. The accompanying salad was quite good, and the frites/fries were superb. Overall, it is certainly a bargain. The wine list is also a great bargain. And the starter and desserts we had were excellent. Husband would go back just for the gelato served in a brioche, he liked it that much (and he's not normally a dessert eater).
The only negatives for me were: 1) the server took away our wine to keep it in a common cooler, so we did not have access to it on our terms; 2) the music was kind of bland, boring international disco, sometimes too loud; 3) as the place filled up, between the music and conversations it got louder than I like--not so loud that we had to shout to be heard, but still too loud for a reasonable conversation level.
Came here 5 days after opening for a birthday dinner with 10 friends. Awesome vibe with good food and music. Great service.
