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!

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

Always a great place to dine at! Really enjoyed the rissotto and red velvet cake that was part of the restaurant week menu.

This restaurant is NOT offering restaurant week even though there is a restaurant week lunch menu published on open table and nycgo. We requested the items on the menu as they basically told us that they didn’t have the ingredients so we couldn’t order those dishes. The waiter graciously offered our first round of drinks on the house but we still felt duped since we came for the parsnip soup and risotto.

We loved it! There was an issue with the Restaurant Week menu...but the manager there compensated us. Our waiter was great! (Vince)

Very bad experience. They were not fully open at the time of my reservation and the whole staff used the first floor as the staff hangout. Reservation was at 11, I walked into the restaurant at the same time as the hostess at 10:58. We had to get out of our seats to ask for anything we needed (water, coffee, spoons for the coffee, when we were ready to order, etc...). They were folding piles of laundered napkins on the bar/bar stools and were opening the bar/restocking the Bar our whole meal. There were only 4 of us for brunch but 2 meals came out first and the other 2 didn’t come out until 5 minutes later which was very awkward. The food wasn’t great, much better places in Gramercy!

I happened to book for restaurant week but they didn’t have a restaurant week menu so we ordered from the regular menu.

VERY DISAPPOINTED with our visit on Saturday night. Had booked a table for a special birthday celebration and we were seated at a high top table in the bar. When I explained the situation to the manager he was not particularly interested and when I asked why my reservation for a table in the restaurant, which is upstairs, was filled with a high top in the bar, he said Saturday night was very busy and shrugged. The restaurant had the opportunity to explain we would be eating in the bar with they called to confirm on Friday. The food was fine but it was not the special occasion it was meant to be. Disappointed in their lack of customer service.
