We had a delicious brunch- superior food quality with fresh ingredients in a truly charming interior that felt like a bit of New York history. We will definitely go back. I would also like to try it for dinner.

Although the restaurant is located within a beautiful townhouse on a scenic side street near the park, the positives of the experience about end there. The food was very poor quality and expensive, given the taste.

We had braised wild mushrooms with truffle for the appetizer. The mushrooms were submerged within a purée that was flavorless and soggy...which is surprising how weak the flavor was given that there was truffle in the mix.

For dinner we had a strip steak. We asked for it pink. The sauce it was marinated in was ok, but the piece of meat was fatty and very over-cooked. Only the center was pink. The rest was cooked to brownish gray. Also the potatoes that came on the side were flavorless, like the starter course.

Finished with a warm apple pie/pastry type desert. Again, the flavors were very weak, and the pastry bread that it came baked in was hard and cardboard-like.

For three not-so-great courses and a glass of wine it came to $155 per person after tip.

Although the charm of the building and it’s location are alluring, there are many tastier alternatives in other cozy spots throughout downtown. Not worth the visit.

My wife and I had been wanting to eat at The House for a while. So, when they had reservations available for Valentines Day, we jumped on it. Here are our impressions:

First, the food was fantastic! I had the short rib and my wife had scallops. Both were delicious. The only drawback was that, for Valentines Day, they offered only a prefix menu. It was $100 per person. So, when we added a bottle of wine, our bill exceeded $300. Steep, yes, but whatever it was a special occasion.

The service was also very good. The hostess was a little abrupt, but our waiter was great.

Here’s the thing though: The House seems really cool because it’s a restaurant situated inside a quaint little house in the middle of New York City. But, when you eat there, you quickly realize that it’s a restaurant situated inside a quaint LITTLE house in the middle of New York City. It’s a very tight fit. My wife and I sat at a table in what was the basement, squeezed between three other couples directly across from the semi-open kitchen — not horrible, but not great either.

Overall, we’d go back — the food was seriously that good. But, we’d definitely aim for a date when the place is a little less crowded.

Didn’t have our table ready upstairs so we sat downstairs at a bistro table. Would rather sit upstairs

Had a wonderful meal with my wife and in-laws. The food was superb, the service was attentive, the ambience was magical. Loved the cassoulet and the truffle Mac and cheese, also the deviled eggs. Delicious!

If you are really hungry, go somewhere else.
It is a lovely atmosphere, but you cannot eat atmosphere.

Great butternut squash soup and kale/brussel sprout salad. The homemade lasagna is one of the best in the city. Great cocktail list.
