Georgian
Oda House Offers authentic Georgian cuisine and natural wines. A liberal use of spices, kebabs, khinkali (oversized meat-and-cheese dumplings), mtsvadi, khachapuri (Georgian cheese bread) and adjaruli (Cheese boat) typify the kitchen’s preparations. But, more classic dishes may reveal satsivi, or boiled chicken, served cool in a warmly spiced and seasoned walnut sauce, accompanied by gomi. Oda House uses mostly fresh and organic ingredients sourced from local farms. Menu has plenty of vegan and Gluten-free choices.
Maia Acquaviva, managing partner and executive Chef of Oda House, brings Georgian cuisine and a dose of Georgian culture and pride to NY. The passion she had from an early age to cook blossomed. Maia said, “Words cannot fully express how grateful I am for the opportunities that have been presented to me.” Her life motto is: If you want something with all your heart, the entire universe mobilizes around you to make your wishes come true!

Excellent food, appetizers and entrees were excellent. We sat in the outdoor area and that made service slower, but not bad. We enjoyed it very much!

The food (especially the breads and dumplings) is wonderful. Try to avoid sitting in the back room, however, as there is a sort of air-freshener smell in there. Otherwise, beautiful space.

Food was very tasty we split different kinds of cheesy breads and some cold appetizers dumplings were delicious. Portions varied in size. Service was rather gruff and they kind of hovered over us when they wanted us to go. Wine was on the pricey end but were all dry but not necessarily flavorful. They did have a variety from Georgia

Delicious food and great service! Sat outside in front of the restaurant in their covered outdoor dining set up. Great for both vegans and meat eaters.

The food was incredible, the wait staff very attentive, and atmosphere was cozy. I’d come back and recommend anyone to give it a go.Things we absolutely loved were the Cornish Hen, the Khinkali, the house special, and the Chakapuli. We paired it with a bottle of the ancient orange wine which was also very tasty.

Poor service, mediocre food. We were never asked if we would like drinks, lamb stew had hard little chunks of lamb in a watery liquid. Maybe we didn’t order correctly, but no matter, we won’t be returning.

Mom’s Georgian (Eastern Europe), so I thought fit to take her to an “authentic” Georgian spot for Mother’s Day; well, did I think wrong!!! The place smelled moldy, the wait staff barely notice you are there, and the food was undercooked, and severely overpriced. The only eatable food were the two slices of cake we had. Anyhow, stay away is what I say!

The best hidden gem in the Upper East Side! The food is amazing, service is impeccable, and the ambiance is perfect for a date.
My boyfriend and I went on a dinner excursion there, and the quality is exceptional.
Fresh ingredients, and the food is filling but light enough to start or finish your day.

Notable entree: cheese bread bowl (I'm not sure of the Georgian name) (delicious!!!!)

The food was good but often we felt forgotten in the outdoor space. Plates were also not refreshed in between courses. Wine was not poured by the waiter either.

Georgian food is really different and delicious from other cuisines. So is their wine.
Be prepared to share with others so that you can sample more kinds of delicacies.

Our 3rd time here and 1st time for lunch. Once again outstanding! The Kharcho soup is a dazzling array of flavors and spices. Mushrooms and potatoes also cooked and spiced to perfection. The star for me and reason I was looking forward to lunch here was the Chicken Livers Pies. Not for everyone’s pallets but try it, you’ll love it!

Terrific and unique cuisine, slightly on the pricier side but generally worth it. Outdoor space was beautiful and very cozy, indoor was a bit more barren, presumably only temporarily. We had a lovely evening!

Great food, extremely reasonable prices for NYC, excellent service. The only bad thing? The music. I know, it's ridiculous to mention this, but the restaurant would be much better served with some kind of original Georgian music/song instead of typical elevator-jazz playlist. We had the obligatory khinkali, obligatory adjaruli, chakhokhbili, and Napoleoni. All of which are perfect on a cool crisp day. Side note: they have wines but no cocktails, which is not a big problem at all.

First time having Georgian food did not disappoint. The Adjaruli (cheese bread) and Khinkali were especially tasty. Service was great, atmosphere was cozy and quiet (thanks to reduced indoor seating)
