The Warren, a gastropub serving unique takes on classic dishes, is a mainstay of the West Village food scene. A full bar with inventive cocktails, comprehensive wine program and craft beers compliment cuisine served late into the night.

Seating was a bit close, but we have our vaccines, which have to count for something...
They were super nice when our 3rd person was very late and we said he might not make it. Tho we were only two at first, they gave us a table for 4 on Mother's Day, which was great and let us just order appetiziers while we waited for my son. When my son finally showed up, we all ordered together. Food was good. Service was very friendly and attentive. Food was a bit slow coming out of the kitchen but i put that down to reopening jitters and possible lack of sufficient kitchen staff. Cute ambiance in a great West Village location just off the corner of Christopher and Hudson. Would recommend.
My friend & I had dinner there on a Saturday night. The restaurant was busy and it felt very pre-Covid. The noise in the venue is very high. Not for anyone wanting an intimate conversation.
The food is decent, the menu has good fair I had their brick chicken for a main it was ok. Not the best I have ever had but it was ok.
The wine selection was decent, their reserve Malbec was worth having. Regrettably the toilet broke, so that was not ideal however that can happen.
Such a cozy and intimate spot! We went for dinner and got to sit at the bar which ended up being great. Sitting right in front of the bartender ended up out weighing the 5-10 minute wait for our table to open up and we were happy with our decision. Food was amazing, the "meatballs" were perfect and the entrees were just as good. Highly recommend, especially for a date night or a smaller gathering as it is a smaller space and can get loud but nothing overbearing.
We were greeted warmly by hostess and sat at a great table. The food was favorful and well prepared. The biggest concern I had was the combination of cost with the level of service. While the waitress was nice, she was clearly struggling with too many tables. We were seated at 7:30 and did not get out of restaurant until 10 without dessert. She forgot to add chicken to our salads so the rest of the table was served food while 2 people waited for chicken on the salad. This messed up wine pairings because the chicken took 20 extra minutes and the wine was gone before food arrived. We weren’t charged for the chicken but nothing else was done for the table other than a brief apology. We were charged an automatic 20% gratuity with an 18% meal tax. The overall cost of the meal would have been acceptable had it been paired with good service but instead the experience felt jilted and underwhelming. I would not recommend because I think a bit more could have been done on the customer service side. Perhaps offering a free dessert or additional glass of wine might have just gone a long way to compensate for a mistake. Mistakes happen, but the quality of a restaurant to me is how does the staff take care of it.
This extremely small dining spot located between the PATH station on Christopher and Hudson Street has done well during the pandemic with the addition of about 5 "outdoor tables". The place is packed on the weekend with a boisterous lively crowd packed in every corner. While the menu is limited the attention to fresh ingredients and creative dishes is very good. The black kale salad comes covered with grated cheese and one can't compare it to a Greenwich Ave. establishment that has a similar salad called Chrysanthemum; both are fabulous The flatbread with mushrooms was delicious and their twice-fried chicken is a clever take on chicken nuggets. The cocktails were innovative and looked good but the glass of wine was a meager pour. Overall a good quick meal and get out.
Great date night ; food service ambience on target !
Delicious food, kind and helpful service! It's one of my favourite spots for brunch. The menu offers a lot of variety so there's something for everyone and the brunch drink prices can't be beat.
Open table lied about the happy hour. Open table said there were specials that were 8 items for 8 dollars Monday through Friday until 8pm and that was not the case. Disappointed
The food and drinks where great. Reservation was on time. What a great team of employees. Well done! Will be back
Just an all around really good restaurant. Great menu with good variety of choices, nice cocktails, fun vibe, and good service!
We had reservations for a Thursday night. Party of 5. The service was impeccable. Our hostess was kind and welcoming. Our server was great. The place was busy but our server did not let us feel like she was rushed or too busy for us. The ambiance, is quintessential NYC with candle light and music that permeated a timeless,hip,relaxed contemporary feel. It's comfortable but not sloppy. It's upscale but casual. The food was surprisingly top notch. My party shared small plates for the entire dinner. The Warren was able to deliver high end service with food that had creative and not cliche fusion qualities, which did not skimp on taste or presentation. Kudos to the chef and staff. It was a really great experience.
Fantastic staff, food and drinks were on point!
The food at this establishment left a LOT to be desired. If the food at the Warren was as good as the service, I would return. However, until that’s the case, I definitely won’t be back.
Brunch at the warren never disappoints!
A lovely and delicious dinner, the atmosphere was intimate, inviting and fun. Service was great and the food was delicious. 10/10 recommend the tuna tartar.
The food was fantastic, and the service was good.
We sat outside on the sidewalk (because it was full inside due to pandemic restrictions). The sidewalk had a kind-of steep slope so things would fall off the table. The tables were small too, so when all the food came out, there wasn't enough room.
I'd recommend this place invest in some decking for tables to sit on so they don't lean so much and get bigger tables.
Loved it and so did my mother! We made a quick stop here while we were shopping and my mother absolutely loved it.
Thanks a ton!
great experience. sat outside in the "indoor" section. great ambiance, great service, great food
Food was great!
Such a cute cozy hip place!
Amazing spot. Great vibe, drinks, and food.
Took my server's suggestion and had the octopus as a starter. Maybe the best grilled octopus I've ever had. I played it safe with a burger for my main, and it was delicious as well. I visited in late March on a chilly night, and even though the doors were open nearby (a COVID precaution) I was warm and happy at my table. I'll definitely visit again.
Great oysters, lamb chops, mussels and drinks. Ashley was great and the owner/bartender fantastic. Will be back soon.
Service wasn’t great, waitress got our order wrong and wasn’t friendly at all. Also ordered a beer and she forgot.
Loved the food. Great serviced. Perfect dirty martini.
I love The Warren! The food is formidable, the vibe is chill and family-like, service is top-notch. Located in the heart of West Village - what else would you wish for on a Friday night?! Parking is easy these days. Support small independent restaurants like The Warren - they need it the most right now.
dinner was excellent. food was great & service was kind/quick/informative :)
Great food and service, very safe, and the hostess was a gem.
Highly recommend the burrata, eggplant “meatballs,” and mushroom flatbread toast. Great ambience for a date night.
The best nyc dining experience. The food was inventive and thoughtful. The drinks were timely and sophisticated. I couldn’t have dreamt of a better experience.
I went there for my birthday dinner and the staff made me feel so valued. Very nice experience.
The Warren is a staple in my brunch restaurants and dinner restaurants. The food is outstanding always. I will say that things were quite pricey - and I wonder if this is a function of CoVID and the shut downs. I understand how tough the last year has been on the restaurant industry. And I’m happy I can continue to visit the Warren in the future! Everything was great!
When we first arrived we were about 30 minutes early for our reservation. The hostess asked us to wait for a few minutes and a table would be ready. About 20 min later, we were directed towards the back of the main room and sat at a table in the corner. We were told by the hostess that the owners family would be coming in and had reserved the area where we had been sat so therefore our seated time was limited to approx a hour. My friend and I ordered drinks and several plates to share. The hostess happened to walk past our table so my friend asked for a dessert menu. She said they did not have one but mentioned the desserts and said she’d be happy to put an order in for one if we didn’t mind leaving our current table to re-sit and a different table to have our dessert since the area was reserved by the restaurants owner. We decided against dessert. We were both appalled and taken aback for the way our seating was handled. If indeed the area was reserved, then why even seat us there to begin with? Would not return based on service alone!
The hostess was very rude
Restaurant dining in the age of a pandemic is not easy. We were out-of-towners (family of five) looking for an outdoor dining experience in Manhattan on Valentine's Day. We were able to find this restaurant, and lucked out. The salads were great, and so were the burgers. We ate outside in a bubble with a heater. The kids (teens) loved the experience. The waitress was very attentive. Would visit again.
The brussels sprouts, twice fried chicken, truffle mac and cheese are our top favorite dishes of all time! The Warren is by far my favorite restaurant in NYC
It was our first visit and we really enjoyed the overall experience. Food was delicious especially the twice fried chicken! Their cocktails were also very good and refreshing. Love that they make all the juices and flavors in-house. We will be back!
Excellent all around. Nice hostess, sat us quickly and in a great corner table for Valentines. Every thing we ordered was delicious. The steak and the agnolotti were both must haves, the sauces were incredible. Loved my cocktail, and cheesecake dessert was yum and I don’t even like cheesecake. Would absolutely come here again and again. Highly recommend.
Great place !:)
