North End Grill Ratings and Reviews
Treated this Friday night neighborhood excursion almost like a test having just read Danny Meyer's book (owner of the restaurant) and was not disappointed. The decor is terrific, the food is great and every member of the staff makes you feel like they are happy to be there and glad you came to visit; that's in addition to knowing every intricacy of the menu, which I suppose is something to be expected.
From the creative and delicious menu to the extensive scotch selection, our meal was better than anticipated. The waitress Erica was darling and provided great service even sharing with the bar manager our interest in fine/rare scotch. He came over and introduced himself and told us about a few of his favorites. BTW the ambiance was great. We had our son with us and there were other diners with young children but it still was an intimate evening and many couples around us were enjoying themselves. The tables are well spaced and comfortable. We will go back and back again!!
Beautiful restaurant. Our server was not only adorable he was super attentive and knowledgeable. There was always someone to refill your glass and clear your plates, but not in annoying way. It would be fun to go back in the evening and sit at the bar, the drink menu looked lovely. I had a fish dish - the fish was extremely fresh but slightly over-seasoned for how delicate it was. The veggies it came with were cooked to perfection with a delicious sauce. Chilled cucumber soup was okay, I would have liked some more crunch in this puree and a touch of salt.
Was disappointed since mr Meyer's Madison park
Restaurant was so great when he owned it. Went with
A friend from Maryland who loves fish and he said he's
had better fish down south. I ordered the lobster Cobb which
was ok. Our vegan friend did remark her veggie burger was
the best she's ever had.
A little out of the way for some of my friends but once there it was nice atmosphere and great service. Saw some kids and babies there at the other tables. The food was good and the service. The desserts were not what we expected. The german chocolate cake were actually cookies...and the lemon meringue was nothing to rave about. Everything else was GREAT!
Would come back to try dinner one night.
We booked a table for brunch for 8 people to celebrate my birthday. Due to travel commitments, half the party were nearly an hour late. However, the staff were so friendly and accommodating that all of my guests were very well looked after. When we eventually sat down to eat, we were given a great table outside and our waitress was so helpful. The food was fabulous and matched by the service. I would certainly recommend this restaurant and will definitely make a return trip next time I am in New York!
Our experience at North End Grill started with the hostess welcoming us. Once seated, the manager came to our table and introduced herself. The menu changes daily and it was very difficult to decide what to order. Everything sounded delicious! It was a very interesting menu and ranged from girts with coddled eggs and bacon to fabulous steaks. It certainly is a "keeper" in our book!!
very good and solid, but not wonderful or something you have to tell friends about. The appetizers are quite tasty, the entrees left a little to be desired. The prices were high ($45-53 or so for sirloin?) and they fell flat. The service made up for it and gave us the feeling we had an amazing experience, with attentive staff who each made us feel like we were the most important people in the room. Desserts were also flavorful with unique flavors but didn't pack a "wow" punch like we expected. A gorgeous kitchen you can see , and the bar area would impress any scotch aficionado, and the dining room is modern but private enough. 21 26 23 would be my Zagat equivalent. Would return to try brunch.
we were so excited to go to this resaurant again as the first time near its opening was so memorable. it did not disapoint and was actually better as we were with real foodies like us. the Wine lady, Mia made our experience even better with thoughful pairings and comments on the menu. cannot wait to go back.
I have been going to the North End Grill every few months since shortly after it opened My excellent dining experience has always drawn me back, but I was dismayed on our last visit to find the offerings were very much cut back. The menu listed far fewer choices and the tasting menu, which we had always been delighted with, was no longer available. No specials were on offer. The wine list was much abridged as well. The lamb and fish entrees were well prepared although I found the eggplant that accompanied the lamb to be undercooked. The desserts, as always, were exceptional. However, my sense of a special night out has been very much reduced. Perhaps everyone concerned with the food experience had taken August off.
Danny Meyer's restaurants are known for their outstanding service and this did not disappoint. From start to finish, the four of us had an outstanding experience. When they discovered they were out of my favorite gin, they gave us a sampling and then followed up with a note card for each couple listing where we could procure the gin we substituted, customized per city of residence. The food was glorious, our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and we are now in love with the place. And I mean in LOVE. Well done!
Had a little trouble finding it and we arrived feeling half drenched from the rain but were made to forget the weather once inside. The ambience was comfortable but classy. As you are shown to your seat you pass the bar and the different stations where your food will be prepared. The food was fresh and carefully prepared and the service was top notch. We didn't feel rushed, being the last customers of the day. I thoroughly enjoyed my "Scotch Bonnet" cocktail. The seafood Sunday dinner for two was more than ample for two hungry diners as well as being very tasty. The blueberry pie with the verbena ice cream was a unique but pleasing taste sensation. It's no wonder this place is rated so highly.
Everything was super fresh and prepared to perfection. Creative dishes - for example crab salad is served on a half shell with grated apple, avocado and cherries - delish. The portions are not huge, which is refreshing - just the right amount of food. The lobster is to die for!! If you like great seafood, this is a place to try.
I would recommend this restaurant for anyone in the Battery Park City area. They serve good, clean food that lacks imagination. Knowing that Floyd Cardoze is involved in the restaurant in some way, I expected the food to be a little more exciting. The roasted carrots, a small side dish, at $9 a pop, was burnt. The crudo Copper River salmon was the hit of the dinner.
The food was terrific and the service warm, welcoming and yet not intrusive. Meets just the right need in this neighborhood for a sophisticated yet accessible dining spot. Relaxed and not fancy but still feels special. Good for any kind of occasion from taking my 88 year old mother to a business lunch to a birthday.
My wife, son of 10 and I all loved the restaurant. From the starters of burratta, cucumber soup; egg and lobster, superb lamb and truly excellent halibut; to our indulgent deserts filled with flavor, surprising herbs and great presentation, we constantly positively surprised. A return is definitely needed.
Fantastic food and service without the pretensions of some fine dining.
Everything was delicious. Special mention for the halibut with rice crusting and griddled watermelon, and the butterscotch pot de creme, which almost caused my spouse to leave me for the pastry chef (after 20 years of marriage)!
Service: also exceptional. Attentive but not hovering. Never made us feel rushed, even tho we arrived late. Excellent recommendations from James and Brad, who really listened to our requests.
Kids--if your kids only eat hot dogs, this is not their place for you. But they did have coloring paper and crayons, put milk in a covered plastic cup with straw, and the room is lively enough that a child is not a distraction. Our 5-year-old loved it!
Went for my birthday. They had a lobster/clam bake for the 4th of July weekend. $39.00 "special" for half of a soggy 1 lb lobster and about 5 shrimp. I could have prepared better by steaming them in old bay. The best part of the dinner was the french fries. Don't think I would go back.
I always get a bad feeling about a restaurant when after you sit, you wait and wait no one approaches . Finally giving our drink order only to wait again, delivered by a cocktail waitress who clearly was unhappy about working. We made this reservation because of the special advertised dinner, then were told the chef ran out(at 8:00?) well, ok, but wait! our waiter says he will ask the chef and now the meal IS available but the special dessert is not. We wished the special dinner had not been available, very disappointing. Over seasoned scrawny lobster. But wait! Now the special dessert IS now available. Thank goodness, best part of the meal. I have had some great meals here before. What happened? Especially the service?
I am a (recent) huge fan of North End Grill. The kitchen alone sets the restaurant apart from its downtown competitors. I have never, nor have my dining companions been disappointed with a meal here. We are now over the requisite dozen lunches and dinners.
While I stick to well chosen (by the wait staff) Oregonian Pinot Noirs, others in my party have strayed into a wide and deep wine list, which at times can be unexpectedly expensive.
The ambiance is sleek, contemporary fine lined with sophisticated service. I offer a four star in this category because the service can have its nights - and when on other occasions it delivers to such an exceptional and consistent level the lapses are painful to the host, probably invisible to a new quest.
Outstandingly meticulous but casual and friendly service set NEG apart. Floyd Cardoz's food is always fresh, creative and delicious. I love his egg dishes and the oysters. The comprehensive selection of Scotch is a lot of fun for a drink at the bar before or after dinner. A great place to take guests from out of town--stroll up the park along the Hudson after you eat.
Went for a biz lunch and would certainly go back. Were seated at a quiet and large table towards the back of the restaurant. We told our waiter that we had some time restrictions and they made it work without us feeling things were rushed either. Liked the nice selection of wines by the glass.
Not only would I not recommend this restaurant to a friend, but I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy. The service was abysmal. We waited more than 10 minutes to be seated (we had a reservation and were on time) at the hostess station, another 10 to receive menus and a waitress, who told us she "should have come earlier" because they ran out of pastry baskets as appetizers. My mimosa came only when we complained to the manager our experience wasn't the best. But don't dare do that because the experience went downhill FAST and we were literally stared-down by the ENTIRE wait staff and kitchen staff as we left the restaurant. You've been warned!
