Tableside Italian Cook Shoppe
We ate outside, great food, great service despite being outdoors.
good value. very well run and attentive staff. feels like a family-owned spot with good values
My husband and I have been coming to Tableside for years for special occasions and everyday dinners. The concept of elevated classic Italian dishes never disappoints with the cheesy veal and truffle moneybags being true standouts. Their COVID outdoor setup is amazing with ample heating and a 3 sided/covered enclosure. All tables are socially distanced and the staff are diligent about keeping their masks on. The owners and staff are super welcoming and always make you feel at home.
Food was great. Service was impeccable. Nice quiet and cozy
Came here with my wife for a date night. Could not have been happier we picked Tableside. Food, ambience and service were all amazing. They went above and beyond to make sure our dining experience was perfect. The moneybags and Neopolitan ragu were excellent dishes! Also, to note the heater set up for outside dining worked great.
Loved loved this place. Will be back !
A friend recommended this restaurant to me and I am so glad we came. Food was excellent and you couldn't have asked for friendlier service. Felt very clean and tables were well spaced and separate. Will definitely be back!
Celebrated my 20th wedding anniversary with my wife here last night and everything was excellent. Top notch service and mouthwatering food. The ragu pasta was delicious, along with the lamb meatballs, the octopus, and the truffle moneybags. Highly recommend and looking forward to coming back with the whole family. Great service too!
Not good. The pasta looks and tastes like a Stouffer’s frozen TV dinner. It was so bad that the poor waiter offered a complimentary glass of wine. No one that appreciates food food goes here. It’s for tourists and kids in the LES. There are dozens of much better, authentic Italian eateries with tastier food within a stone’s throw.
Appreciate your opinion, especially during this time when small businesses are being shuttered at no fault of their own. The bulk of our business comes from repeat customers and word of mouth; there are no tourists in NYC right now. Look and see that 99% of our feedback is positive. Our waiter topped off your wine as he could sense that you were not satisfied, even though you reported to him that everything was fine. Trying 2 dishes is not enough to write a scathing review such as this.
I love this place! The food, service and ambience of this place is great! Would definitely recommend.
Very friendly service. All of the food was great, even the bread they start you with. Dark moody ambience and quick service. Drinks are great too!
I’ve been here at least 6 times now and never once has there been anything to scoff at. The food is consistently delicious and the service is not only amazing but also very personable. The tuna tartare appetizer special was some of the best I’ve ever had. We sat outside under a heat lamp and we were comfortable the whole time. I love this place.
Always a great experience here! Food is always excellent and staff is accommodating. Came to celebrate my cousin’s birthday and all the first timers could not stop raving about the food! Love this place!
One of the best Italian places I've been to in a long time. The truffled moneybags were an amazing bite and the Roasted Hog may have been the best thing I ate this year.
This restaurant has a nice outdoor seating arrangement with heaters and the street has little traffic. The food was exceptional and beautifully plated. We shared a wonderful beet salad called Taproot Symphony. I had the wild salmon called Upstream Swimming Fish with a digjon mustard sauce that was scrumptious. My guest had Neapolitan Ragu which she really enjoyed. With a glass of wine and generous tip it was $65 and worth it. I can't wait to go back!
One of the best Italian restaurants in NYC.
My fiance and I had an amazing dining experience at Tableside. We were supposed to get married on the day that we went to the restaurant but unfortunately it was postponed due to COVID 19 and the service was nothing more than perfect. They made sure we were happy and enjoying our night with fantastic food and wine. We truly felt very lucky. We will definitely be back again to dine at Tableside!
Awesome service, beautiful COVID safe outdoor space, and top notch Italian food with inventive cocktails!
Lovely restaurant. Outdoor heaters worked great on a very cold night.
This is one of the best restaurants in the east village! Every single time is a delightful experience.
One of the most outstanding lasagnas I’ve ever had in my entire life. Our waiter was a complete gem, was working so hard throughout service and was so kind. I can’t wait to go back!!! Highly recommend for anyone looking for a great neighborhood spot.
Great ambiance and service. Food was fairly average.
Lovely service and hearty food.
The service was excellent and the food was even better! Highly recommend the octopus appetizer and the short rib pasta!
Outstanding friendly service. All of our party enjoyed their entrees.
Absolute AMAZING atmosphere. The food was phenomenal and the service was great!! Myself and my party had the absolute best time and we are already planning a return trip!!
This is hands down one of my favorite restaurants in the city! Great for any occasion. The food never disappoints! The meatballs are an absolute must, and don’t skip out on dessert! The staff is always very friendly and attentive. Don’t think twice about booking!
Great night out! Food and service was superb!
If I were a celebrity and featured on the show, "The best thing I've ever ate," well...I would say THIS RESTAURANT! The service was damn near perfect, the drinks were delicious and the food...THE FOOD!! AMAZING! I would recommend this place to anyone. For drinks we had: the muddler ( crowd fav - SO GOOD!) AND the black bulleit. To start, we ate the chicken meatballs appetizer w/ white wine alfredo sauce, plus bread and hummus (3 kinds) and then we shared the following two plates: Truffled money bags (with sauce you'll want to bathe in! lol well no, but you will want to dip your bread!) and the drunken goldenbird (juiciest chicken ever with the most cripsy crust - I mean, how do they do it!?). To finish off the meal, we had a tiramisu. It was my boyfriends bday, and they put a candle in the tiramisu, too! Needless to say, the entire experience was awesome and top notch. Our waiter was nice, down to earth, professional and encompassed a good sense of humor.
Great food and service!
Ordered the moneybags and drunken bird. So good!!!
One of my favorite neighborhood restaurants. Excellent food and wonderful staff/owner.
Dodd was average. And the service was good but there was just something missing. Hard to run a restaurant during time it seems.
Food was great, service was excellent! Highly recommend.
Great food, great service, very nice outdoor seating with overhead covering. Also very accommodating for guest with nut allergies.
I came for my birthday with 7 friends and the service was top notch, truly felt taken care of. Food was amazing and ambience perfect. I highly recommend to others.
Cute place, nice outdoor seating in side street, very nice and attentive staff that brought all drinks (including dog bowl!) and food swiftly. Dog friendly is always a plus! Food was good as well and good value for money, esp. compared to current Manhattan prices. Definitely will be back for another dinner. (Good for date night or catch up with friends)
The food was great, the ambiance was beautiful and the service was awesome!
Will definitely go again. I had the truffle pasta dish.
Great pasta, reasonably priced. Tables spaced well.
