What Insiders Are Saying
The Loyal is a slightly old-school American restaurant in the West Village from the chef behind Narcissa and Nix. It’s upscale, but not too uptight.
It is a mystery why anyone would be loyal to The Loyal. Mediocre, overpriced food, small portions, loud and. While, hostess was clueless and arrogant, otherwise food service was pleasant. As a lifelong New Yorker - I would not remotely consider going back to The Loyal, and I would try to dissuade anyone from going. So many places in Manhattan worth trying - this is not one of them.
Nice atmosphere and the food and cocktails are very good, but the portions are pretty small (but not inexpensive) and it's extremely loud. Tables are super close together. Makes it difficult to have a conversation.
Fantastic music, great food, great vibe
The service and food were outstanding but the noise level was almost physically painful. My wife and I could not have a conversation unless we shouted and even then, it was hard to understand what was said.
We are unlikely to return.
The service was truly awful and spoiled the meal. Food is overpriced and mostly okay, with a few very low points. Avoid.
Went for brunch with friends. Excellent coffee! Started wifi monkey bread to share, delicious! Everyone liked their entrees: I had egg white frittata, others had fried egg sandwich, steak and eggs, eggs Benedict. Would go back!
Drinks were pricey even by NY standards... The decor was interesting... rather strange drawings of pigs, cows and people, some we ‘got’ (two pigs in a blanket = pigs in a blanket etc, but some were definitely out there! The food was a little overpriced (again, even by NY standards) and two of us got the heirloom mushroom polenta with bacon, broccoli and a poached egg, which I definitely don’t recommend! It was basically soup, no broccoli in sight, some bacon and the poached egg which was really undercooked. All in all there are way better places in NYC for brunch... maybe they have a better dinner menu?
Loved the food and the service.
Very slow service
We needed the menus and water and dessert but it took forever
Great dining experience
I really enjoyed the ambiance of The Loyal! Also the food was great!
The servers were slow to greet us, took a very long time to take our order and did not check in on us much while we were eating our meal. My mother had wanted to order a coffee after the meal, but the server never checked in with us, so she was not able to order it. They originally seated us next to the entrance to the kitchen for our Thanksgiving meal (we did make reservations!), which felt rude.
Second time here BUT first time try for a Thanksgiving dinner out ........ result was outstanding. Chose a traditional Turkey, stuffing, side section off the special menu and the results were wonderful. Atmosphere is casual but polished. Service is professional. Wine list is very good with curated wines for the Thanksgiving menu on point. Room tends to get pretty loud as it fills up and the music levels still seem to be too high but looks like they're trying to moderate the irritation with more table cloths! Nice effort.
Food music and service was great.
Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Truffle polenta, Duck, and sundae dessert were all highlights.
We loved it!
The food was delicious and creative, the decor very pleasant, the service very good and we took our time!
The burger and tots are great. But much of the food just not where it should be. Wine not where it should be and wait staff not great in assisting on that front. Very loud. Can be hard to track down a waiter (though they are nice). Always a wait for a table, even with a reservation, always a bit of an attitude. Seating is TIGHT, and if someone near you is a loud talker, heaven forbid. Really good cocktails.
Very friendly staff. Great food
The Loyal is first rate!
My wife and I picked The Loyal on a whim to relive our first date (5 years again when it was Pagani). We were thrilled to see a fresh take on an old favorite, with a tasteful ambience, coupled with flawless cocktails and cuisine. The menu is diverse and weaves in creative ingredients with unique and bold flavors. We can’t wait to return and highly recommend.
Overpriced and average food, albeit it in a delightful setting with super friendly staff.
The service was a bit slow and the tables were close together but overall like the place a lot!
Nice low lighting...Beautiful bar...well presented, flavorful dishes...perfect portioned...Black Bass, Braised Beef Ravioli, Duck Fat Tots, Baked Alaska all outstanding!
The best thing about The Loyal for brunch is the location and they take reservations. The food was fine. I’ve had much better brunch food in the city. We got a major attitude from the hostess but the server was excellent.
We arrived at 7:55 for an 8pm reservation and they notified us that the party at our table of 4 was paying the bill. We waited at the bar for 10... 20... then 30 minutes with a few check ins with the host. We approached him again by 8:40 asking about our table and he simply shrugged and said there was nothing he could do. Not even an offer to put a round of drinks on the house. If anything, he made us feel us feel like we were in the wrong for even checking in about our table and like our request was not worth his time. Guess making a reservation doesn’t matter here. Went across the street to John’s for pizza - better food and definitely better service.
Great food...great service...it is noisy but didn’t bother us
Met girlfriends for lunch. Everything was exceptional. Service with a smile offering clear explanations of dishes and level of spiciness.
Food was brought promptly. Will definitely return with friends and for dinner with mu husband.
I enjoyed the atmosphere of The Loyal. The wine list is very expensive for both wines by the glass and by the bottles. It put us all off. My hamburger and duck fat tots were delicious. My friend got the shrimp scampi and it was almost too spicy to eat. The squid ink pasta and the octopus got good reviews from my other dining partners. Service was a little slow. I'll try it again though.
Delicious food and cocktails and very attentive and thoughtful servers.
Waitress seated a couple directly next to us when there was a row of open tables for two. The man had the loudest most ob oxious voice which forced us to leave early.
Our new favorite in the Village. Such incredible service and beautiful food. Burrata with pistachio pesto and fresh figs - perfect.
Tonight will be our third visit during this trip.
Considering reviews and p.r. expected more. While the servers were very pleasant and attentive and the food was more than adequate the room lacks a specific personality. Could be in an upscale chain rrestaurant. Worse, the wine list is insanely overpriced even by New York City standards. Example: The Pinot noir highly recommended by the sommelier at $95 is available from the a wine club she mentioned for less than $18or less if you join the club. 500 percent plus markup on a simple wine. Not going back.
First visit and the superior service alone would warrant a return. Happily, the food is also wonderful. A new favorite for our NYC trips.
One thing should not happen :
I ordered Long Island Duck, after 2 bites, I realized the duck is a bit of lukewarm & rare, I asked the waiter to cook few minutes up, 5 minutes later, the waiter brought back the plate and there were 3 pieces left ( it was 5 or 6 pieces duck when it served ) I brought this issue to the manager ( a sweet lady ) she offered me a new dish..... I declined ( I don’t feel comfortable about ....) Instead, she offered me another side dish of rissoto (delicious ). This is really odd incident for all my years of dining at gourmet restaurant.
I don’t know if the cook in the kitchen ate the duck or throw the pieces away.....
Decent food, nothing spectacular. Good service. Decor was fine.
Fab bistro for brunch. Cool decor, amazing music (not too loud, just loud enough to appreciate the 80s and 90s classics), attentive server.
Creative menu without being too pretentious. Most importantly, everything was delicious. Top tip: take the monkey bread. It’s outstanding.
My friend and I had such a great dinner on Friday night! The service was friendly and on point. The food is delicious. The portion sizes are on the large side. The sundae service is so much fun. There is something for everyone on the wine list. It was super busy on friday, and for good reason!
Food was awful. Super salty. Tasted like eating a block of salt. Every course was awful
I loved the food, atmosphere and decor! We will definitely return. The monkey bread was delicious, the drinks were great and I loved my salmon and potato latke breakfast dish.
Yummy food, though my chicken was not hot but my husband ‘s scampi was delicious. The service is wonderful and I’m in love with the bar. My new favorite neighborhood go to.
