My wife and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary on September 24th. I called a few days ahead of our reservation to see if there was anything special I could arrange for the occasion. I was told they would bring out strawberries and chocolate, and that they would tag our reservation with a note that said we were celebrating a special anniversary. When we arrived, we were shown to a table for two squished between two tables for parties of four - inches away from potential neighbors. We were permitted to move to one of the tables of four to allow for some privacy. No strawberries or other treats for our special occasion as advertised (I offered to pay extra for these things when I called earlier that week). My wife’s crab and sweet potato bisque had small pieces of crab shell found only when she inquired if I had any crunchy pieces in my soup. The salmon was over cooked.

If we were eating at a chain restaurant, paying chain restaurant prices this would be an expected level of food and service. But that wasn’t the case. We were expecting spectacular but received sufficient.

The wine selection was very impressive and the food wasn’t horrible overall.

We’ve been to Odettes several times. Always consistent. Good food, service and pleasant atmosphere.
Amanda and Eileen were great.
There was a manager there, helping set up tables, delivering food. During these times of shortages of work staff this is what a manager should be doing, filling in the holes where help is needed. Some restaurants, not all, the manager just walks around, “overseeing” when there is an obvious need for someone to pitch in and help. Kudos to this gentleman.
Can’t wait to return to Odettes.

Filet was great, asparagus was so plain not even salt or pepper on it. Paying for parking to dine at a restaurant is ridiculous especially $20

Well we never actually had a waiter. We were there for 15 minutes and no one came to our table so I had to get up and go to the hostess station and ask for a server to come to our table finally the manager came over and waited on us. And supposedly a waiter would come by and introduce him or herself but didn’t so we needed up with the manager as our waiter. Everything was just off that night. The food was so so. They did make it up to us by comping our drinks and appetizers That was appreciated

Beautiful outdoor dining overlooking the river. Food was prepared well, but overall rather bland. Service was OK, but not in alignment with the price tags; when entrees are $40-$68, service should be on point (no mistakes in the order, no spills on the table, knowledgeable staff). I would consider returning for cocktails outside, were it not for the $20 parking fee to do so.

The setting is lovely but the brunch menu is extremely limited and the wine-cocktail prices are NY hotel high.
Our food was ordinary and I couldn’t find ANY lump crab in my Benedict dish. The impression we had was that the wait staff was harried so we didn’t say anything.

While the setting is incredible but service was really bad. Took 10 minutes for server to even come to table and it was not busy at all. He did not even know the items on the small breakfast menu!!!

Food was INCREDIBLY overpriced for the quality. Wait staff was incredibly friendly and hospitable, but this does not excuse the immense price gouging for mediocre dishes.

If you plan to eat at Odettes - stick to their solid cocktails and mac&cheese grits.

Just remember; Do not expect quality despite ordering a $42 entree.

This was my third time there. The first two were outstanding. This last time wasn't. I ordered the wedge salad and the bacon was hardly cooked....could not eat it. My friend ordered the Margherita flatbread and the tomatoes on top were so awful that she had to remove them. I would still recommend Odettes but probably wouldn't order either of these items again.

This was our 4th time to this lovely spot and this time the food was just average. The cheese board didn’t have any bread just thin crackers and not enough. The soup crab/sweet potato was barely seasoned. The bucatini was a bit dry as was the crab cake with wilted greens. A bit disappointed but we will try again. Server was great!

We had Saturday brunch here yesterday. Our server Maria was very sweet and attentive, I esp. enjoyed that she complimented me on my age as I’m 54 and she said she thought I looked 37 😂. I had a delicious Bloody Mary, my husband had the pumpkin and crab soup, we shared the eggs Benedict and also shared the French toast. The timing of the courses were perfect and we never felt rushed and enjoyed the beautiful view. We look forward to coming here again. Highly recommend!

Nice atmosphere. I ordered the duck. I said to cook it to their liking. It was chewy and had no seasoning. I asked for salt and pepper which saved it. My husband’s steak was good, although he thought he ordered mashed potatoes, but received baby potatoes. Still tasty. We ate breakfast the next morning and just ordered yogurt and granola. Yogurt was plain and warm. Served with pineapple, honeydew, cantaloupe and berries. I found the first three to be a poor pairing. I couldn’t eat much of it. Coffee, desserts and wine are worth going for. Staff were nice, but were spread thin.

Waiter aggressively tried to get us to order more and more expensive items. We ordered wine by the glass and he served us wine that was $10 more per glass than the wine we ordered. He argued that that's what we had ordered, but it was not.

Our server was wonderful, very attentive and friendly. The food however, we thought was just ok. We shared a wedge salad, I had the eggs benny and hubby had the egg tortilla dish. None of it was that great. It was ok, totally edible but nothing either of us savored, we expected more for the price tag. We were also disappointed that we requested an outdoor table in our reservation and were told there were only 2 tables in direct sunlight available. Why wouldn't they just put an umbrella at these tables? We chose to sit inside instead, so the ambience was not what we wanted. It was our anniversary and also I am 9.5 months pregnant so our last outing before baby, we were a bit disappointed overall. But none of any of this was our servers fault, she was great.
