    Thanksgiving at Odeon was festive and for the turkey non eaters, the regular menu was available. Restaurant was abuzz and festive. Thanksgiving platter had all the fixings.

    Have eaten here many times. Food was so mediocre tonight and the vegetables on the plate were even cold (like just taken out of the refrigerator). I told the waiter as I was so surprised and he just stared at us. Dried out turkey. Limp, dull not warm stuffing. Even drinks were watered down. Worst hot chocolate ever. Overall not good food. Maybe go for a burger. But not entrees. Overall felt noisy, tired wait staff and less than good food. Too bad.

    Thanksgiving plate dinner was great, as were the desserts. Always lively with welcoming service and even on the way out, was shown appreciation from the staff. Professional and rapid, French bistro style.

    I have always adored this place for its warmth and buzz since my NYU days in the 80s. Went for dinner with a pal on a Sunday eve and it feels the same; hostesses and wait staff friendly and competent. My pal had the steak frites (called something else now so they can raise the price) and ate every bite. However my lobster roll was perhaps the worst i have ever had, and i have never left half on my plate as i did last night. Bun soggy and not toasted and buttered. Lobster meat not in chunks but tiny pieces, then over dressed with something tart like lemon? The price however of $35 is actually a bargain ($40-45 everywhere in hamptons now) but it should be classic lobster roll. Missing from menu in my opinion is escargot and whats up with “vegetarian nicoise salad” with no option to add tuna? Sorry that must be a joke?

    The food is always good here. However, although the waiter was very pleasant his nails were dirty and a knife dropped on the wet outdoor ground and he wiped it off and put it back with the other clean cutlery. Cleanliness needs to be improved.

    The Odeon is a beloved classic for us. We were relieved to have an outdoor option. The service wasn’t very friendly and the prices felt higher than the quality of food deserved.

    I love the "energy" at The Odeon, folks enjoying their food and having a great time. The food was delicious, I had the mussels/ frites, the sauce was outstanding, I finished it with a soup spoon, yum. The sticky caramel dessert was a must. Excellent service, very attentive.

    The Odeon is long-lived classic, but its kitchen and staff are doing much more than going through the paces. Everything was top-quality. At our table were seasoned international restaurant patrons. All left happy, commenting on how the Odeon has still got it!

    Odeon is one of my favorite restaurants in the world. It’s quintessentially New York City to me. Sophisticated, buzzy, fun, and classically encapsulates my ideal of a great New York social experience. I brought my goddaughter from the UK and her friend from New Zealand for their first visit last Thursday, along with my niece whom I introduced to Odeon in her late teens—now one of her favorite restaurants too. I was introducing my god-daughter to my niece and we were meeting her friend, so we were trying to break into conversation together when our efficient server, Caitlin, curtly cut into our fledgling conversation with her urgent need to take us in hand. We paused, acknowledged her and ordered drinks. She delivered them five minutes later and then we told her we were going to need a little time before we were ready to order. She continued to curtly and a little officiously keep interrupting our conversation throughout the meal, and we all bit our tongues and got through it before she made her final interruptive announcement that she was leaving and her colleague would be taking over our table. At last, we all felt great relief with her exit. Caitlin may be a good employee and I certainly would not want to cause her any job insecurity, but she just doesn’t know how to properly read a table and sense how to seamlessly serve. I’ve always loved the stylish service you provide, but she really needs some coaching, or a new position. I’ve been a customer since the mid-80s and hope to be through my mid-80s and beyond. Cheers!

    I’ve been working in restaurants for the past 25 years, so when I go to one I notice details that a usual customer doesn’t. Everyone was very professional, the service was super fast, the food was very good. The portions are on the small side and the price is a little high though.
