Fusion / Eclectic
Onieal's offers casually elegant American cuisine with Italian and Asian influences from neighborhoods we are at the vortex of, Little Italy and Chinatown, Time Out once voted us the "Best Restaurant in Little Italy". We have been a leader since 1995 in the "Rebirth of the Cocktail" movement with our unique cocktails and our precision in making the classics.
New York Magazine, "trendy but not aggressive bar scene". The perfect meeting place for lunch, after work drinks and dinner or fun late-night on the weekends. Set in a neighborhood that for more than a hundred years was the knife’s edge of wealth, corruption, poverty and crime.
Onieal's today is a refined, hip restaurant with a long history as well as being the "Sex and the City" Scout Bar, owned by characters Steve and Aidan in the show.

    The cocktails were fantastic here, great little bar to stop into for a drink before walking over to the main little Italy strip. The food, at least the appetizers we ordered, didn’t have much flavor.

    Llegamos y no nos atendieron porque no tenían mozos. El barman no nos hablaba, ni en inglés ni en castellano. La gente esperaba en el ingreso y cómo nadie los atendía se iban. No había control de vacunación al ingresar.

    Despite the opening hours being online and the booking being available the restaurant was resolutely closed - literally completely not open. No tables laid; no lights on! And we were not the only confused and disappointed brunchers! Most amusing thing was the sign in the window announcing that the staff was fully vaxxed and ready to serve us. But not that morning aparently!

    It was my Birthday and quite possibly the worst service I’ve ever experienced in my life. It took a total of 2 hours for someone to get their food and then the rest of the plates came out sporadically. Not even everyone got their food before we had to bail. Drinks were fantastic though. But I thought I was quite possibly stuck in pergutory waiting for our food.

    It took us at least 45 minutes to get a drink. Staff was incredibly rude to me. They did apologize at the end for their behavior but it was really unacceptable. I won’t be back.

    Restaurant closed down and didn’t even bother to take their reservations off of open table. My husband and I got all the way to the restaurant and had to figure out by the fact that the lights were off and no tables were set up outside that they were closed. Didn’t even have a sign on the door.... I understand these are hard times but at least take your reservations down and have a sign on the door

    Food and drink wise, this place is trash. My old fashioned was too expensive to be so sweet! The calamari was bland and over fried. I opted out of ordering entrees and went to The Smith where my drinks were far better for two bucks more and a satisfying calamari dish just a few bucks more as well.

    Came here for a birthday lunch when away with friends to New York from London. So nice and cosy, I preferred the mood change in music when the SATC tour came in as the music was super chilled before that, but was still great. Our server was excellent. My friend said what she had (enchiladas, perhaps?) was AMAZING, I would have liked more flavour in my burger, but hey! My bloody Marys weren’t as tasty as I’m used to in London but had more in the city and they weren’t either, so they hit the spot but not to my personal taste. All in all, thank you for hosting us and I look forward to visiting again next year!xx

    Very beautiful space, and it is filled well with great staff and wonderful food. I am sure there are club hours when dining incompatible with dancers, but when the place is quiet, they put out a first rate product. All our dishes were quite good, and the Chablis on the wine list was great. I wish I had taken a picture of the label to remember the name. Dining prices are quite reasonable, but it costs more for a good buzz, all well worth the experience. Compared to the loathsome pseudo Italian joints in the immediate vicinity, this place is the dining star! Check it out!

    The staff was personable enough, but we just got bad service. I made my reservation through opentable but they had no record of it. I showed my confirmation e-mail to the hostess and she was polite about helping us, but just pointed at our table across the room instead of seating us. There was a special Valentine's menu that included sea bass and hanger steak, which we ordered. Unfortunately, we were served the sea bass and hanger steak from the regular menu and the steak was not cooked as I had ordered it. Maybe it was just an off night. The atmosphere seems great for drinks, but we won't come back for dinner.

    Good ambiance, fun music, delicious drinks. Really a cool place. Didn't realize it turned into a club around 10:00 pm. Had to elbow our way to the restroom through all the party-goers. Food was bland & nothing to write home about. I would go for the night life, not for a dinner.

    Local neighborhood gem! Love the ambiance in there with the lights. Good place for a chilly night. Had the short rib with elote. Wasn't my favorite - I wasn't feeling the BBQ sauce on the short rib, but that's my fault - I should've known BBQ sauce probably wasn't a great choice for me. The elote would've been good, but it tasted really sweet for some reason, like there was sugar in there along with the cheese. Not sure if that was on purpose. But my friend liked his meal and the oysters were good! I'd give it another shot!

    Great spot. Food was delicious. We had the deviled eggs, fried calamari, the blackened seared tuna, and the spaghetti bolognese. Our friends had the penne vodka and loved it as well. The one 'con' is not one I would typically mention, but given that we were told it happens somewhat frequently, I think it's worth noting. We all met a little earlier than our reservation and had a drink at the bar. The local DA office was having a happy hour, and they ended up having several of their team members give speeches over the course of 20 minutes. Definitely awkward to sit at a bar and have to whisper while people spoke for 20 minutes. Not really appropriate unless you have a private room.
