Oda House is always phenomenal. Very filling and it’s good to plan to walk a fair amount after you eat. Shememochema!!

I love Georgian food. The dishes are a little pricey, but given that the ingredients are quite expensive (walnuts, tart cherries, etc.), I think you get great value for what you pay. So far, I've liked everything I've tried at Oda House.

Fascinating Georgian food. Be sure to try at least one of the breads, which are specialties. Wine list is entirely Georgian wines, not my favorite but interesting and something definitely worth tasting.

If you are a foodie and like Georgian food, then this is the place for you. Many of m friends with Georgian background whom I brought here liked the food a lot. My entire family goes for Adjaruli first... Everything else is good on the menu. Authentic wine from Georgia (for the wine snobs: the Georgian wine is aged in clay pots, do not expect the oak properties).

Couple of things to mention: the rumor goes that the owner has Georgian background, was MD - neural surgent, but always had a passion for cooking. The latest most exciting rumor - they will be opening another location on upper East side.

Oda House is a go-to favorite any time I’m downtown. It’s the best Georgian food I’ve enjoyed in the United States, and keeps me returning and recommending your restaurant to others. As always, my meal is never complete without adjaruli or megruli plus kinkhali. Your wait staff are lovely and knowledgeable, and they always make me feel welcome. Thank you!

The food is either an absolute hit (khachapuri with egg, lula kabob, chicken liver appetizer) or an absolute miss (chicken dish - “Cornish hen”). But definitely worth a visit.

The place is very tight and noisy. If you are looking for a romantic spot or a place to hang out and talk with friends - this is not it. Also the reservation time slots are tight. You get an hour and 45 min.

Oda house is great spot for a big group looking to experience authentic Georgian cuisine. The downside of Oda is that they aren't very organized and during the dinner rush 630-930 they are always struggling to provide attentive service to customers, and, most importantly, to SPACING OUT COURSES. Either everything comes out all at once, or you have nothing on the table for 30+ minutes.

Authentic Georgian food using excellent quality ingredients, many of which appear to be organic, which I really appreciate. The selection of house-made, traditional dishes was so large that I had difficulty choosing. We had the excellent Borscht with an Imeruli (type of Khachapouli). The latter was quite good but we would have preferred it with the smoked cheese that was unavailable that day. Then I had the delicious Chakapouli and I really appreciate the organic lamb. This dish was perfection! It was difficult to select a desert because of the wonderful offerings. The Napoleon was the best I have had since my childhood and easily enough for two or even four persons, but the Shok-Manje was also delicious. Looking forward to trying more of Oda House's very interesting selections in a future visit!

We love coming back again and again to Oda House. Our favorite things are:
Satsivi -- Organic, grass-fed chicken cooked in walnut sauce & Georgian spices (served cold)with ghomi (Georgian grits) and Sulguni cheese on the side (served hot)
and
Megruli -- Homemade imeruli bread & sulguni cheese melted inside yougurt dough, baked with extra cheese on top.

This was our first time having Georgian food and I can't imagine a better introduction. Friendly, welcoming staff. Imeruli, khankali, lula kebab and lamb/eggplant entree were superb. Also enjoyed the Georgian wines although, as I'd been warned, they were out of the least expensive options. Lots of hard surfaces, so probably can get loud, but early in the evening it was quiet. Old-world cafe-style ambience. Great place to go with a group so you can share and try lots of items.

One of the best restaurants in New York City. It is rare to find authentic Georgian food in the United States, but Oda House breaks this idea. The adjaruli khachapuri was, as always, incredibly delicious and very filling. The same can be said for the khinkali which are among the best I have ever had. But even beyond the classics was the delicious shkmeruli I had for my main course, it was one of the best things I have ever eaten. Oda House also has an incredible selection of delicious Georgian wines which are very hard to find anywhere outside of Georgia. Going to this restaurants needs to be a mandatory if you are in Manhattan and love great food and Georgian wine.

Phenomenal as always; my undefeated all-time favorite restaurant for many years now. This warm, relaxing atmosphere is perfect for a dinner with friends. Go in a group so you can try everything on the menu - I have not yet been disappointed by a single item they offer. If you've never had Georgian food, give it a try - you are in for a real treat!
