The food is better than Meatball Shop, but the experience is not. I’ve been here a couple of times. The food is great. Everything is consistently fantastic. But the overall dining experience is a drag. The tables are tiny, wobbly and crammed together - even by NYC standards. I’d almost prefer if they just did a big communal table instead of their current layout. The service isn’t friendly. The hostess was not welcoming. The waiter for the party next to us kept standing in the tight space between tables placing his back pockets right in my face. I get space is at a premium but between your table being at butt-level and the cramped quarters, I was happier to leave than I was with my meal. I’d consider coming back but I’d make sure it was their off peak hours.
Very loud environment with very cramped seating. Food was ok with small portions.
Awesome food! But, tables are very small and way too close to other tables. Music is loud so you don’t hear your neighbors conversations, but this also makes it hard to hear your own conversations.
I've been coming here for years, it's def one of my favorite places in the city. Never ever disappoints!!
Excellent food but the tables are tiny. So if you want a little room/privacy request a window seat.
My 20 something girls loved it. A bit loud for the old folks, but food was good.
Went with my husband and a friend! Great atmosphere, food, and service. Loved and highly recommend!
We find ourselves returning to Sauce for a casual, satisfying Italian meal. Generous portions, plenty of options, and lots of red sauce & cheese. Calzone special was gooey and delicious, salads were good accompaniment. Chicken Milanese was topped with loads of leaves, chicken parm was just what you'd expect. We'll be back!
Whenever I get to New York, I never miss a chance to experience Grandmas food, Sunday Gravy, wow, Sauce is a favorite.
Food and service were excellent! Old school hip hop was cool, too!
Had a Gilt City voucher and had a great night! It was quite loud. The food was tasty I just wish the specials had been included in the offer.
I went to Sauce for Valentine's Day with my girlfriend. The reastaruant was WAY too loud and packed. We were barely able to hear each other the whole time. We had to move our table and the table we were at was broken. It didn't make our first Valentine's Day experience pleasant AT ALL.
Pre-Valentine Day dinner was great! Food was delicious and well priced. Service was very good.
This was my second time here and it was definitely better than the first time. The service was better, food was better, all around a much better experience. Our server had great recommendations, so we just went with whatever she suggested. Food was good, but I felt like all the pastas had the same tasting red sauces. Which was still yummy, but the menu didn’t have much variety. I would recommend the chicken parm and definitely the garlic bread! Great spot for a group brunch.
Seriously, this place is a joke. Kind of cute inside at least. BUT.. some meatsauce and polenta a bottle of wine and desserts and we were starving after spending 160 dollars for two. I dont get it.. The 'burrata' appetizer for 18 dollars is actually three slices of mozzarella on some sad looking tomatoes. Dont know how this place can survive.
The food was great , but the restaurant temperature was unbearable. We left immediately after eating
Nice cosy spot with hearty pastas and ambient vibe amid hip hop backdrop
Spaghetti bolognese was disappointing as the spaghetti pasta type was too thick and had a weird consistency - it was more Hokkein noodles than spaghetti. Otherwise, overall the food was good.
We got to Sauce late for our reservation and they were able to seat us right away. That was really appreciated. However, the food was just okay. The music and general ambiance is what you would expect for a trendy restaurant on that side of town. I wouldn’t go out of my way to go again though
Delicious! Well paced and fun atmosphere!
Had an easy and pleasant Saturday lunch here. Enjoyed the Gilt City promotion that includes 3 brunch cocktails and an entree per person. The fried egg risotto was mouth watering and the pairing of the cocktails was an amazing add on! The promotion was $39 total for 2 people! Such a great deal for such wonderful food!
Loved the experience and vibe! Will return!
The bolognese, lasagna and everything really are fantastic but the staff is always in a rush to get you to leave as soon as you're done with your meal which is unpleasant as customers spend money to have a nice evening out and don't want to be pushed around.
Too dark, too loud.
Arugala Salad was ordinary
Mushroom tortoloni was great as was classic pizza
The food was excellent, and the service was good--after we finally got the host's attention to be seated. The hip-hop soundtrack was awfully assertive for Sunday brunch.
Small portions but good overall
Yum!! So delicious. Space is tight so don’t bring a lot of things with you.
This restaurant does not match at all what is on the website. Most of the reviews are correct that the food is bland. I met friends for lunch along with my daughters. I chose this place because the site looked to be a casual place and didnt have the "bar" vibe that many LES places have. I was wrong...they didnt give us the size table we needed. In addition, at 12:30 during the day, it was super dark and they were blaring rap music loaded with curse words. They saw we had small children and not only sat up near a speaker but didnt even have the courtsey of lowering the music, let alone putting on better music. The meatballs were ok but the service was horrible. we had one waitress, never saw her after she took the orders and kept having different people.
Waited 50 min for our reserved table. Insane.
We were sat next to a heat-conducting pipe. We sweated to death. We ask to be moved two tables over (which was a two-top, like our table and distanced from the heater) but we were refused on the grounds that a party of five was about to arrive and they would be sat at this table (pushed together with the table next to it). Within 7 minutes after we were told by the hostess that we could not move to that table, a couple was sat there. We were miserable throughout the entire meal. Even though my husband and I pulled off all our layers (my husband went down to his undershirt) we were so overheated and uncomfortable that we lost our appetite and could barely eat. We will not patronize this restaurant again.
I knew it'd be good but it still blew me away just how good!
food amazing. service, one of the beat waitresses weve had in years. downside is dont get seated in the back room during winter, big time draft. No where to sit or stand if it aiting for the rest of ur party to arrive if bar is full. Other than all this great rest.
Great place. Good food
Great ambience and very attentive service but I’ve had better food... .. we didn’t hate it but felt if the food was amazing it would have left us very satisfied and super happy as opposed to feeling “It was just ok”.... Some plates were great while others were just so-so... The lasagna was very good.The Burratta appetizer was great. Rigatoni was a tasteless and dry. We would definitely go back and give it another try...
Great as always
Good meatballs. I enjoyed the steak. Courses served to close together. Need to space out more.
We loved Sauce - fun menu - delicious food and good atmosphere.
beware of the “table next to smelly toilets” treatment. otherwise good food and service
Fun place to try. Food was good. Vibe was cool. Not sure I would run back though.
