A Perfect Place for a delicious meal- we were running 15 minutes late due to rain & Mother's Day traffic- spoke to Leslie who said not to worry. The wait staff was attentive! Great coffee and food- I want to try a flat bread next time!

Union Square is always bustling with crowds especially at lunchtime. There are many restaurants in the area some are very good. However if you want to have that same quality of food and enjoy a quiet lunch with a friend or client. This is the place!

We had less than nice service and the food was really not great. Things that “came with” the fixed price Easter brunch never appeared. Our daughter’s french toast was super dry as if it was truly toast with none of the egg. My husband and son had lobster egg Benedict. The lobster in each dish was icy cold and the eggs were lukewarm. The dishes were not very flavorful. I had the dullest vegetable frittata I’ve ever eaten. My Bloody Mary tasted like pure seafood cocktail sauce: We found very little to like about the meal! We will not return.

Delicious meal, wine, and gelato. We enjoyed the flatbread, braised beef and risotto, small side of truffle mac and cheese, and the gelato trio. Every item was spectacular - the gelato was by far the best I've tasted. So good. Would definitely go again.

The ambience, food, and service at this place is very special. My only complaint is the mark-up on the wine list, which is a factor of 6-7 times retail, rather than the more common factor of 2-3. The Rodano Chianti, for example, is on the menu for $70, but can be purchased in a store for $12-14.

An excellent find. The service was exceptional. All the food was fresh, hot and highly inventive. The table shared some deviled eggs and one of our patrons dropped one in her water; without missing a beat, the server had a replacement one made and brought it over without our daring to ask; that is service! Entrees were excellent; chicken, mac n cheese, a sublime steak and the burgers. Desserts were uniformly excellent. Highly recommend as this is a quiet gem in a beautifully restored house.

Nothing special. For normal table seating, you had to walk a full steep flight of stairs. Downstairs there was only high top seating . Extremely difficult for people with disabilities. Our cheese platter was cold, should have been at room temperature. Came with crackers and several slices of pair. Would not recommend restaurant.

It was our first time dining at The House. As we entered we were warmly greeted and shown to our table which was on the second floor. Our very friendly waiter was at the table within minutes. The restaurant is warm and cozy, the tables are set nicely apart, the menu looked great and the entire staff was super friendly. The three of us shared a few appetizers which were very good. We then enjoy our entrees. Everything was delicious. We will definitely be back!!

Romantic space. Attractive bar space with a fireplace and high tops. 8-10 tables on the 2nd floor; converted carriage house. Menu of standard american fare done well.
Had apps of 4 different types of deviled eggs, mushrooms in polenta (filling and warming on a cold evening).
4 generous scallops, cassoulet (REALLY FILLING and warm on a cold evening)
Apple gallette (we sadly skipped the S'mores because we were full).
Short wine list. Ordered by the glass. Riesling. Good. Little steep at $16. Delicious Dark and Stormy.
Worth going back for more and S'mores.

I’ll start by stating that this is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is always excellent. I’ve never had a bad meal here. The service tonight, however, was poor. It seemed the waiter (whom I’ve never seen before) was servicing tables upstairs, and downstairs. We waited a while for him to come over to us and when he did he seemed unhappy. He wasn’t interactive at all, and appeared stoic. The bartender on the other hand was friendly. She came over and took our drink order, but was obviously busy herself. The waiter at no point in the evening came to see how our meal was or if we needed anything. The only time he came to us after taking our order was to bring us our check, and I had to signal to the bartender for it. The runner (person who brought us our meal) was nice and was the one who took our dessert order. Now again, I love this place. The food is excellent and the service is usually stellar. I don’t know what happened tonight. Maybe they had an employee call-out, I don’t know, but they were apparently short staffed. It’s usually so much better. Even still, we loved the Mac and cheese and the short-rib. You’ve really gotta try it, oh, and the brownie sundae! Delish! My compliments to the chef! Thank you.

I picked The House 3 years ago for my 20th wedding anniversary. It was voted on of New York's most romantic restaurants. We had a great time. Three years later, my wife and I were in NYC again for our wedding anniversary, and so naturally I went back to The House. This time we were not as impressed. The menu had drastically changed and neither of us really enjoyed our meal. The ambiance and service were still good, but the overall value was not there. We will probably be looking for a different location in the future.
