    I initially went to Little Owl because of the name (love owls). Let me tell you - the food was amazing! I had the Mexican corn, spicy bucatini and the strawberry rhubarb crisp. I also had a strawberry lemonade drink that was quite refreshing. The Mexican corn was sweet, spicy and creamy. The bucatini was some of the best I’ve ever had. I got the half portion, but wish I could’ve eaten a whole. The crisp was simple, but the perfect dessert to end the meal. Dani, my waitress, was incredibly nice. She spent time chatting with me about the area and the food, without neglecting her other patrons. It’s a small, quaint place, but it has outdoor dining as well. I will definitely come back her to try their brunch menu. I didn’t realize this until after the fact, but it’s in the same building as the Friends apartment.

    A fun and enjoyable brunch experience! Terrific service, delicious food, great all around positive vibes. 2 members of our party were late due to traffic and the staff were super accommodating. Our server Dani was the best! The burger and sliders were delicious. We ordered every desert on the menu and there were no disappointments! Look forward to dining again at the Owl.

    We enjoy going to the Little Owl, every couple of months. During our most recent visit, the food and drinks were well prepared and delicious. Our waitress provided excellent service, however, her team members lacked professionalism, and drew unnecessary attention to themselves. We’ve been dining at the Little Owl for 10 years, and were quite surprised by their behavior.

    We picked a beautiful day to sit outside for lunch at the Little Owl. Dining outdoors was nice since Bedford Street is relatively quiet for Manhattan. The menu had so many great options that it was hard to choose. Make a point of getting the strawberry rhubarb crisp for dessert!

    The service is really friendly and attentive as a restaurant in the city, it could be rare now days. Food was great too. It gets a bit loud when the place is fulled up, could be harder to talk, but not a big issue for me.

    Once again, another terrific experience at The Little Owl. From the moment of the initial greeting, through our departure, everything flowed in the first-rate way that the hard working staff - as in everybody there - does, to make it seem effortless for us to enjoy our meal. It’s such a treat to enjoy Steak & eggs - properly done and expertly made to order. My companion ordered the Salmon and scrambled egg dish and pronounced it “perfect.” Finally, who can say no to French Beignets in chocolate fondue when they rival the ones from New Orleans? Its a great sensation to always feel welcomed into the warm, convivial, capable atmosphere of The Little Owl, Bravo!

    First, I added to the reservation that I am vegan. The only thing I could have was the Caesar Salad that was redacted to literally just romaine salad with a house dressing. Nothing was adapted or replaced. The restaurant was also extremely loud because of the music and the staff so I had to yell to talk to my lunch partner. I find this a great pity and did not enjoy the experience at all.
