    Second time here and it only got better. The staff and food (The Usual Burger is a MUST!) here make for a very enjoyable experience. Thank you to The Usual for an amazing evening with my friends from Canada, we all had a blast! Kudos all around.

    Breakfast sandwich is the right amount of bacon egg and cheese. I can say is the perfect breakfast sandwich. Tortilla española doesn’t have to much flavor ,pancakes are ok nothing especial.

    I went right when it opened on a Saturday, 5pm. So I was able to get the happy hour specials, which for how nice the place was and the area, were pretty affordable. The cheeseburger was delicious and so was the longanisa fried rice. Would be a really nice date spot.

    Service was amazing. Dinning room was very well lit when we walked in. We mentioned this to our server and she quickly accommodated and set the tone. Small dinner portions but very flavorful. Should have more options for vegans

    The menu is totally different than the menu posted online. And the actual menu is boring. Plus they ran out of half the things on the menu and the service was weird.

    We had a great time at The Usual. The staff was on point from the moment we walked it until we exited. The food was extremely delicious and the ambiance was excellent and very fitting. The star of the show though is definitely The Usual BURGER... Like WHOA!!! It’s a MUST try for sure —yet I’d expect nothing less from the host of The Burger Show. Thank you to The Usual for the overall experience and hospitality. An all around A+.

    Portion of some dishes is just dreadful, like the Korean fried chicken (2 pieces for $20, and that's it). And also the restaurant is too cold inside for a winter day.

    We went for brunch - they've gotten rid of the lunch menu (i.e. no burgers). Service was subpar, portions were tiny. There are so many great options for brunch in Nolita, so this was very disappointing.

    The actual menu has nothing to do with the pictures they advertise as they changed everything but not updated the web page The waitress was sick and had blood in her nose, sucking in her buggies, what is this??? Imagine how’s the kitchen then 🥺 The place did not look clean Terrible from every single aspect We left without ordering Disgusting place and service

    Some hits and misses for the food here. The mains are pretty average in taste but the hotcake and ube dessert were delicious! If you want a space with nice ambience and food that's not extremely pricey (although this is prob $$-$$$), this would be a nice restaurant to visit.

    The food was delicious, the fries were especially good, so crisp! It took longer than usual (no pun intended) for our food to get to our table which was a bit disappointing, but our lovely server filled our wine glasses again as a gesture of good will while we waited.

    went for the burger of the day special when motz was there (who we love!) and the burger was wrong! and the waiter wouldn’t let us order off the dinner menu even though it was 9:40 and burger HH starts at 10, according to the menu. pretty disappointing.

    Bar experience was good, cocktail was enjoyable. Dining room acoustics pretty bad, hard to hear. Waitress wasn't around very much, but runners and busers were very attentive. Food overall was totally fine, but probably won't go back.
