    First, regarding the food. We ordered the MEGRULI (amazing, simple pizza-like dish sans red sauce and with lots of cheese) and ADJARULI (referred to as a "cheese boat" by a friend, with a cheesy dip in the middle of a loaf of bread; I didn't love as much personally but was also very good) to share; I had the MTSVANE LOBIO (Green beans, cooked with white onions, fresh tomatoes & herbs) as my entree and it was so fresh and perfectly spiced and cooked. For wine I had MARANULI TSITSKA, a white wine for which I knew (and still know) nothing about but was crisp and smooth and perfectly chilled and everything I was looking for in a white wine. Second, regarding literally everything else. It was just bad. The service was apathetic the entire evening and it was painful to try and get the bill. When it came, it had errors on it - two large charges not made by us - that we discovered only after our cards were run. I would have thought it had a simple solution but we had to wait ages and as a solution was still not figured out, accept a partial refund on one of the cards. Put a bit of a damper on what was a delicious meal!

    A truly painful experience- deafening and cramped to the max. The food was only just OK- home-style, basic, peasant food- nothing to write home about Could not wait to get out of there. Had never experience such horrible loud noise at a restaurant before!

    Having tried Georgian food in DC, I was ready to have it NYC. We looked for a place near that evening's ultimate destination Open table offerred Oda House. It had good reviews and an interesting menue. We chose well. The food was excellent and very fresh. Portions were generous. The space was understated and casual. The Napoleon for dessert was an inventive and tastey surprise. Service was good and honest. We asked if ordering a special bread would be too much food. The advice was solid. We'll be back. I wouldn't be surprised if that's frequently.

    Extremely poor service. Non-existent, actually. No one ever came to the table to take drink or food orders. When we finally got up to go get someone, the gentleman who came over wasn’t able (or at least willing) to explain anything on the menu. Food was above average. Would not return and would not recommend.

    The food is quite good, though not a value compared to more chic Georgian options. What was most striking was how both the server/ manager and the runner were engrossed in their phones throughout the evening. We had to repeatedly leave our tables and walk over to them in order to get their attention to make our order, ask for our bill, etc.

    I love Georgian food, and I love this restaurant. My wife and I eat there every time we visit New York city, as do friends of ours to whom we have introduced it. The man in charge (owner? manager?) served our table and c hatted with us about the menu and about our recent visit to Georgia. The service was bait too quick: I would have linger more over the excellent food and wine. All of the employees were Georgians from Tbilisi. Every bit of the five dishes we ordered was delicious--better than I remember having in Tbilisi. The bottle of Mukuzhani wine was equally delicious and reasonably priced. We will go there again at the next opportunity.

    This is a second location in NYC (or actually first). Both have very thoroughly prepared food, great service and, most importantly' authenticity. Georgian food and tourism just put their foot in NYC, and I think they deserve to be in the list of the best.

    Only 2 people running an entire packed restaurant. No bartenders, no food runners, no waiter staff except them. Very slow service and many things forgotten. Food was mediocre except for a few dishes. I’ve been to Georgia and the food is very different.

    First off, the staff at the Oda House was terrific. I believe we were attended by everyone who works there, and they made us feel welcome and as though they cared that we had what we needed and enjoyed our meal. We were at the Lower East Side ( 76 Avenue B) location. Of course we went for the food, and while we went with simple fare, it was delicious. We had the vegetarian lobio (Pinto beans cooked with onions, fresh herbs served with Mchadi & pickle assortment). Each herb was identifiable and perfect. We also had the megruli which is homemade imeruli & sulguni cheese melted inside yogurt dough, baked with extra cheese on top. I'm not sure what all that means, and there were so many cheese choices that we'll have to go back to try more. It was kind of like NY pizza, but different. Highly recommend Oda House for Georgian food.

    Love, love, love Oda House. Food exactly like my mom and family makes it and then some. It is a bit pricey, but so far nobody has complained when I took them there. Definitely an experience for a group of people because you can then share food and try a bit here and there. The noise level goes up after 8 pm. It is recommended to go earlier in the evening if you are bothered by very noisy surroundings.

    We love Georgian food and we’re happy to find Oda House when visiting NYC. Service was excellent - friendly, helpful, attentive, efficient. The food was quite good, authentic and included a number of our Georgian favorites. Nice place but the noise level was horrible and honestly spoiled our meal. Much of the noise was attributable to a large group who were there when we arrived and were still shouting when we left. It is doubtful that we will return.

    Tina Turner said it Oda House “Simply the Best”! Fabulous evening at Oda, stayed til the put up the chairs, talking, eating and laughing. And then out of the blue Georgian music comes on and NATO the manager busted out traditional Georgian dance. Was a blast!

    This restaurant would have had great potential if they just used a LOT less salt so one can actually taste the flavors in the food. Georgian food is famous for its use of herbs and spices and that is what we expected. Unfortunately, the only thing we tasted is burning in our mouth from so much salt, especially after the lamb stew. We hope the chef will develop the confidence to rely on other flavors, not just salt, and cut her salt use by about 75 percent.
