Loved everything about the experience from the service to the drinks and the food. Definitely will be back again soon.
Had an amazing server and the bartender was super friendly too. Had an amazing time there.
Very good food, everything was cooked perfectly. The drinks were amazing!!
Service here is incredible, the drinks are adorable and delicious, and the food is wonderful!!! We will be back soon!! ❤️❤️❤️
I love this place!! It’s one of my favorite restaurants in NY. I just wish there were more food options for brunch. An eggs Benedict would make the menu perfect!
Incredible cocktails, well done food menu, and even better service. Can’t wait to come back!
I loved the aesthetic, our sever was great, and drinks are worth the price. Great for girls night dinner.
I brought my mom as she was visiting for the weekend, and we had a fantastic time! The service was truly impeccable, everyone was so friendly and the food and drinks were delicious!! Amazing experience for the both of us!
great service and great food. Would recommend to friends!
I went for my birthday and the server; Stephen was amazing! He answered all my questions about food choices So caring and nice! The food was delicious.
The drinks were phenomenal, food was great, and was perfect for a date spot. The portions were a little small for the price point, but overall we had a wonderful time there and would go again for sure!
Great food! Recommend chicken and waffles and the burger. Cocktails are very good, too. We were there in early November 2020 and I wish they had heating lamps for outdoor dining.
great service and food! drinks were super cute but expensive
Very good service and the drinks were very strong just a little over priced
Amazing food and inventive cocktails!
The food was so good and the cocktails were some of the best I’ve had in a while. A little on the pricier side but worth it!
Amazing experience. Drinks were delicious, food was great, and service was spectacular! Must visit in NYC!
Had to wait for a table despite reservation. Have to buy food as well -- can't just go for drinks
Cocktails and food were great. We dined outside due to the pandemic restrictions, and unfortunately some places just aren’t in areas where that’s a great experience. We were right next to a heavily trafficked bike path, bikes were constantly whizzing by and runners passing right by you - plus ubers constantly pulling up and idling at the curb. Looking forward to going back when we can eat indoors and explore the full menu.
Service was great. Small menu with a good variety of options. The food was well prepared and had lots of flavor. The tables were properly distanced.
Great service and drinks. Great value at a good price.
Overpriced, small portions & burnt food. Good for instagram.
Big on ambiance. Food was good and not too pricey. Drinks were unusual and delicious but that did bring cost of meal way up.
Cocktails were delicious and the service was great!
Not many food options
Came to dinner with my brother and sister. Everything was delicious! We each had a drink and the prix-fixe dinner. My sister said it was one of the best burgers she’d ever had, and my roasted squash appetizer was amazing. Would recommend for date night or a special occasion. It’s a small space so not a good idea for large groups. But we had a great experience.
It’s been way to loud for such a small place and the coffee options could be better but we enjoyed our stay.
It’s super cute and the food is absolutely amazing!
For a place that was so beautiful, the food, drinks, and service were also wonderful!
Delicious drinks and appetizers. Entrees were just OK. Service was wonderful. Very tiny place and you must be comfortable with people bumping into you. Other than that, it was lovely.
We came to While We Were Young on Saturday afternoon for a brunch. The ambience was absolutely amazing. Everything we ordered tasted fabulous. I highly recommend the chicken and waffle. The cocktails are too die for. They are so pretty and yet delicious. We are coming back here this month again for sure!!
Beautiful atmosphere - gorgeous, friendly bartender. Adorable little spot.
Love the aesthetic, food and workers at this restaurant!!! Everything was perfect, definitely coming back :)
Overpriced. Small portions. Expensive wine. Wouldn't go back
Perfect little place for brunch! Restaurant is much smaller than it looks online so you will end up sitting very close to your neighbors, but still such a great spot. Very aesthetically pleasing, great for the perfect instagram.
Food was great, service was amazing and the decor was cute!
$45 for entree and appetizer was good but drinks and anything other than the $45 special is extremely overpriced. Cocktails are good and come in cool glasses but not worth the $18 per drink. Overall the vibe is really cute and great for girls night but it is a bit overpriced.
