Extremely disappointed in both the slow and negligent service as well as the food. Went here for a friends birthday and I felt bad for choosing such a forgettable place.

Food and service great. High top tables a little small and cramped when food and drinks came.

I loved the decor, the food as well as the ambiance. However, I was extremely dissatisfied with the level of customer service. At no point did she voluntarily come to our table to 1. Check on us 2. ask is we wanted another round 3. Ask if we wanted desert. We had to call her over multiple times as well as when we were seeking our check. I would come back. However, I would be adamant about not being serviced by her. (Blond hair in a bob)

Thank you’

What a nice surprise! We booked this restaurant for dinner on Christmas Eve, not knowing much about it. It's cozy and comfortable, without being overcrowded or noisy. And despite the excellent food and service, not an ounce of pretension. Highly recommended!

Your survey did not allow me skip the food
I did not taste the food
around 400 in the afternoon I selected the Warren on open table for an 800 dinner reservation
We arrived on time
We were offered one table by the front door and the bar
I asked for another table further away from the bar and front door since the weather was windy
And the bar was sooo loud
I was told that since I made a last minute reservation on open table this was the only table available
We declined and left
I thought the hostess checking us in was so rude
She did not offer us to wait for a better table
We declined the awful table
We live in the neighborhood
I’m sorry we did not get to taste the food
This was an awful experience leaving us at 800 on a sat night with no reservation
I wasn’t aware if you make a reservation 4 hours earlier on open Table at the Warren you are sitting at the worse possible table !
Also the hostess entered us as a no show on open table

The service was terrible. Pretty much nonexistent. Booked a table but got a high tip by the door. My husband’s chair was constantly knocked by the person behind him. There were plenty of actual tables available.

The food was delicious! We had a group of 7, who mainly ordered entrees—garlic shrimp, brick chicken, pork loin—all said it was excellent! We were seated in a cozy corner and, at the last minute, we had to rush to make showtime. The staff and kitchen were very accommodating and we made it with time to spare!

Fabulous food. Fabulous service. The server recommended delicious plates we might not have otherwise chosen. The Warren is a place to expand your tastes because everything is excellent! It was also packed on a Saturday night without feeling noisy. We had no trouble conversing yet enjoyed the vibe of a full house. Absolutely try this little gem!

Lively place and quite cosy, however the noise levels would have drowned out a Jumbo jet, mainly due to 3 small ladies who screamed at each other. The plates are saucer size which is very weird as it isn’t a Tapas bar although our food was very well prepared and presentation good and tasted lovely.

This place is way too small for how many tables they have. Our reservation was late, and they made us move tables halfway through our meal. Food was slow and portions were small for the price. It was impossible to move around the restaurant because all the spaces to walk were barely wide enough for one person and the kitchen pickup window was in the middle meaning there was almost always staff standing there. We were blocking another table in with ours and had to get up so someone could get up to go to the bathroom. I feel bad for the people that work there, it is ridiculous how small it is.

The kind of storefront neighborhood joint you look into on a frosty evening and feel envious of those laughing and toasting inside. Super cute. Very lively. Noise in the bar was unpleasantly loud but in the back corner where we were seated for dinner, it was tolerably loud. I must thank the reservationist and host for seating us when two of our party of 4 arrived 20 mins before our reservation. Very few NYC restaurants will make that accommodation but she did and we appreciated it immensely and ordered two rounds of drinks and some deviled eggs in gratitude while waiting for our friends. The food was better than okay, but it was not wow. The deviled eggs were heavy on the dijon and light on the mayo, and a very uncomplicated recipe, but you can't dislike a deviled egg. The beet salad was an interesting interpretation, with a goat cheese mousse under thick slabs of colorful beets. I liked it, but the cheese was just unnecessary calories serving as paste to hold the beet slices on the plate. They didn't add any salty or pungent flavor to the dish (which wasn't very salad like.) I ordered grilled salmon without the sweet dipping sauce and without the rice-tots, which I'm sure would have been delicious. The salmon was fine. Not fishy in flavor (a very good thing.) The serving was about 4 oz of thin salmon, not a robust steak of grilled salmon. The accompanying broccolini was perfectly cooked and flavored with a vinegary dressing that was unexpected and a bit jarring with the flavor of the salmon. The burger is a smallish but very thick patty inside a huge bun smeared heavily with a roasted onion confit that is too sweet and tastes charred at the same time. For my husband this onion jam (which he normally likes) ruined the simplicity of a well-made burger. He set the bun aside and ate his burger (cooked to the right temperature) with a knife and fork. Great ambiance, good wine, comfortable menu. The creativity in the kitchen wasn't to our taste. Maybe you'll like it.

A great place for brunch, although it looks like it would be a fun dinner place as well. I'm going back just to try the punch.

It was not at all crowded (maybe not the most popular brunch spot - but the food is worth going for) but the noise level was surprisingly loud. Not too bad, but if it had been busier, I think it would have been really loud.

I had the twice-fried chicken benedict and it was delicious! Interestingly enough, no sweets on the brunch menu (waffles, french toast, etc.) But we were all satisfied with our menu options and had a hard time deciding. Everyone enjoyed their food.

Went here on a date and we were seated at a high top table at the front in the bar area which was very tight. The chairs also had no backs so not the most comfortable. The front door was right behind us and the table was small. However the food and wine were delicious. I really liked the ambiance with dark mood lighting as well. I'll return but request sitting in the back restaurant next time.

Been coming here many, many times since opening night. Always good to excellence. This time I brought 4 other people to brunch at opening time. Food and drink were super, as usual. Service was less than expected because there was only one person working and she seemed to have to be host and server.
Music was too loud.
Of course, I will return: best burger, twice-fried chicken and poutine in NYC!

I did a lot of research to find a place to go with a former colleague who is both cheap and a picky eater. The Warren came up tops in my search and was really a winner.

First off, the food was great. My first requirement was that the place have a burger, because that's something I knew he'd eat. I liked the description of the Warren burger, the onion jam and choice of cheeses put it at the top of my list. Next, since his fallback when being dragged out to dinner was a salad, I wanted a place that had something vegetarian on the menu that I knew I'd like, and the Shishito peppers fit the bill. I had to twist his arm to try one, but he perked up and we went 50-50 on the rest. They were great, nicely salted, the peppers were mild but they had a lot of flavor.

I had the mushroom flatbread, which was full of things I like: mushrooms, truffled oil, an egg hiding under a ton of cheese. It was really good, but I wish I'd ordered the burger, which was made to perfection; my pal ordered the gruyere version, which is probably the way to go, the cheese went perfectly with the tasty and well-cooked patty, and then the onion jam provided just the right note of sweetness without being sugary. I had the Bronx IPA, which, fortunately, isn't really an IPA (true IPAs are the blandest beer this side of mass-produced domestic), and then we were floored by the $46 check for all of that. They have a $10 special on the (usually $25) burger all night on Monday and the shishitos were only $8 instead of $13. I'd go back any night for full price, but my cheapskate friend who nonetheless insists on splitting the bill was flabbergasted. I left the waitress, who was pleasant and efficient, a good cash tip, because, really, I hadn't even looked at the specials.

The space is tiny (super convenient to the Christopher Street Path train if Jersey or Herald Square is in your travel plans), but wasn't terribly noisy. It was mostly empty when we got there at 6, people came in by 7.

We were there for the happy hour. We got two orders of the deviled eggs and one order of the shishito peppers. Both were really good, but the deviled eggs were really, really flavorful. I’d highly recommend both, but especially the eggs.

The service was good but there was no AC, and there was very little food in the plates, even if I have to say that the food was good. The restaurant is very noisy and everyone is queuing for the restroom and it’s not nice when you have the table next to them!

Consistently very good--unusual in a very popular place. Special props to the bartender. Wait-service is moderately attentive--not very, but as long as we get our orders in time to make the theater curtain, I suppose I shouldn't complain. My hamburger could have been closer to what I asked for (extremely rare), as the server assured me it would be. It wasn't, but luckily not so overcooked that I wouldn't eat it. Good enough--but not fabulous. On my first visit here, it was perfect.

Food was ok but the fried chicken for over $20.00 was not even a breast and the restaurant had no milk for coffee which we found very strange. Definitely not going to be back.
