Tiny's & the Bar Upstairs is a three story townhouse located on W. Broadway in the heart of Tribeca. The building dates to 1810 and much of the original materials have been restored and overlayed with whimsical American finish detail. Siblings Matt, Jack and Ana Abramcyk conceived of a space where you can come to eat, drink, or just talk over a glass of wine. The sibling trio complements the warm-hearted atmosphere and furthers the artistic spirit of Tiny’s making it a true family run neighborhood place. At Tiny's, breakfast, lunch, brunch, and dinner menus blend classic technique with local market ingredients. The menu reflects Modern American cuisine with Italian and French influences.

Previous visits were better than this recent one.....The staff all appeared to have taken beta-blockers, they were so laid back, and the noise level from some larger groups was rather oppressive. But overall, the food was tasty, and our wine was decent/decent value. It's a nice place.

I’ve been a few times. I love the duck and steak at dinner. Brunch is also good. Huervos Rancheros and steak with eggs are killing it. The cocktails and wine are excellent and reasonably priced. It’s a great vibe and friendly, competent service. Excellent location, and so much better than the more famous place next door that is full of tourists. Bree is especially wonderful if she is working when you go!

Super tasty and with a non corporate ambiance. A nice place to have lunch if you live or work in Tribeca. The kale salad is huge! Prices may have gone up recently because salad is now $18. The meatballs are a good appetizer too.

I love the scallop meal, however, I wish it has the option to serve 3 or 6. I understand the scallop is very expensive seafood. If the owner could have the option to charge 34 dollars for 3 scallops or 6 scallops for $40-44. I would personally pay $40-44 for 6 scallops, I seriously would. It just too stupid good. I kept either taking small tiny bite of scallops because I didn’t want it all to be gone already!!!

Tiny's is one of my favorite breakfast spots in NYC. The Superfood Pancake is a must. If you like veggies and green in your meal, this decision is a no brainer.

Meatballs very good. Got the risotto and cavatelli dinners that were very good. Sat downstairs in the back with tables jammed on top of each other. The chairs are horrible -why?Waitress was marginal and I had her butt literally by my face when she was taking the other tables order. One couple picked up their own dinners and walked outside when a sidewalk table opened up. The food outweighed any negatives but 1 app and 2 dinners $89 with tip - only had water to drink - a bit pricey for the experience.

Tiny’s Holds a special spot for my husband and I. It’s where we had our first date, so we have been back a few times since then. The ambiance is intimate and cozy. The food is a blend of American with touches of French and Italian. The execution however is a hit or miss. This particular night, all our dishes except the Ceviche were all heavily salty. I found myself drinking glass after glass of water. Even my husband mentioned it. From the saffron mussels, chicken, and tater tots the chef must have been sick that day or heavy handed on the salt.

Despite its hit or miss execution, we will always be returning. The service is a bit cold and superficial. It’s a shame, it can be a stellar neighborhood gem.

My boyfriend and I decided to be spontaneous and do a weekday date night, and since Tiny's was hosting restaurant week - we thought let's give it a try. The story I'm about to tell you, I wish I was exaggerating...

We arrive on time, the host doesn't even talk to us for 10 minutes as she's running right past us and continues to say I'll be right with you. We eventually get seated. It takes another 10 minutes for water to come and the back area is so hot as its adjacent to the kitchen. My boyfriend was sweating the entire meal profusely. (I guess they don't believe in A/C either). Then we finally get our water and menus and before I ask him to bring the restaurant week menu, our waiter has vanished. We wait another 15 minutes till I can get his attention (he didn't come by to ask for our food.) Please take note, this restaurant downstairs is very small. So he eventually brings us the menu, we decided to order quickly as we hope that will expedite the process. Long story short we were there for over two hours and the waiter eventually offered a complimentary glass of wine after I complained that we'd been waiting for a hour for our main course. Once the main arrives, I got the pesto cavatelli with peas- I'm not a picky eater, it tasted like I was eating the bottom of a frozen peas bag laced with salt. He shared that they had one big party which backed up the kitchen. If you know you're going to have a large group, a restaurant needs to be prepared. If you dare decide to try out this place, I would call ahead not to make a reservation - but make sure there aren't any large parties before you make a reservation.

Honestly, the look of the restaurant was funky and cool. I would maybe go for a drink, but wouldn't stay longer than 30 minutes. I would not recommend. There are so many other great places in Tribeca.

Food was awesome, very cool atmosphere/environment, great for date night with my wife, but service could have been much, much better. We sat and were immediately greeted by our server, who took drink orders, but then came back to take food orders almost 10 minutes later - without our drinks... We waited almost 20 minutes for our first round of cocktails. The entire time it felt like our server was 'running through the motions' of waiting on us, rather than being attentive. The other service staff was great - table was bused quickly / extra plates & glasses removed promptly and not invasively, which was nice - but wish the actual waitress had been more on the ball. We'll be back, just sitting in a different section ;)

Tiny’s was just right. We had a delicious chilled pea soup for our starter. The wait staff was attentive to our dietary needs and kept our water glasses full. For our main course, we had the kale salad with chicken. Perfect! A lovely, light lunch!

Third time coming here and haven’t had a bad meal yet! Bloody Mary was on point! We shared the tater tots and warm drunken donuts for our appetizers (great call, by the way). We also shared the hangover rancheros and nutella french toast for the win! Theme of the brunch ended up being sweet & savory. So good!

I took my teenaged daughter to Tiny's on a Tuesday night to celebrate her high school graduation. The atmosphere was cozy/chic, and the food was good, as I remembered from my previous visit. (Except for the kale chips. I thought they might be interesting. I was wrong.) But we waited, and waited, and waited, for our main courses. The place wasn't particularly crowded, and I saw other tables (who had come in after us) getting served before us. This was annoying to me and almost unbearable for my hungry teenager. I finally had to ask, a couple of times, when we might expect to see our dinners. The waiter was nice about it, and when we left she comped our drinks, but still . . .

Tiny's is a great spot to catch up with friends over brunch or for a cool, casual cocktail. Although a limited menu (only one salad for the fashionistas in Tribeca) order something that you can use the homemade hot sauce. It is delicious. Tables are tight and hopefully they can figure out more outdoor seating.

Went for Saturday brunch. The service was really great. We were late for our reservation- no problem. Some of our party showed up even later - no problem. We ended up staying for hours - no problem.

Food was very good and well executed. Atmosphere is friendly and a bit funky (in a good way) and we would definitely come back.
