We had a lovely brunch at Rintintin. Our waiter was so courteous, and really took care of us from the moment we walked in the door. He really went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable throughout our meal. The food was quite good as well. We had the house salad with labne and the fried breakfast potatoes were divine.

Food was fantastic and the presentation outstanding. The vibe was energetic and comfortable. A real neighborhood feel. The drinks were equally as good as the food. Perfectly proportioned. The service was outstanding. Never intrusive but always ready and available. Can't wait to go back!

Food and atmosphere were great. I ordered the lamb burger on pita and it was amazing. Enough on the menu to provide options for those with dietary limitations. Only qualm was that when we asked for a little more time to look over the menu we were not checked in on again until we flagged down waiter, and it took a bit for the food to show up. Other than that i would definitely go there again.

We arrived to celebrate two birthdays. The restaurant was stiflingly hot. There was an open window but no breeze. We were seated nowhere near a ceiling fan in a back corner. Probably the hottest table in the place. When we asked about the air conditioning, we were told it would have had to be turned on in the morning and that it would take too ling to cool down the space. It was so hot we were unable to enjoy our food, and left without ordering dessert. Later that evening we walked back past the restaurant. The windows were closed, and the air conditioning was turned on. What is up with that? I would not return to this restaurant even though the food was tasty. U cant believe they didn’t think to turn on the air on a 90 degree day.

No A/C during summer, not willing to move us or open doors/windows. Get ready to sweat.

Love this place. Local atmosphere and good for conversation. A bit off the buzzy scene so it's chill. Usually they play Cuban jazz which is also great for those of us who don't want to listen to top 40 beats

Was really fun and food good, but service left a lot to be desired. Waitstaff definitely were pretentious and didn't seem to care at all.

Hands down the worst dining experience in NYC. Service is abominable!! Food was okay. Never got our entrees we left after waiting 90 minutes and hardly anyone was eating; it wasn’t like the kitchen was busy. Not one person said I’m sorry!

Went for my brother's birthday. When we first got there all the CC machines were down and my husband had to walk 4 blocks and back to go to an ATM. By the time we were done, they were back up and running, so that was a waste of him leaving and missing our meal.

Food and drinks were consistently delivered separately, never at one time. So someone was always waiting on a drink or a dish. Potato gnocchi was chewy and overcooked. When we told the waitress at the end, she was annoyed we didn't tell her earlier...which we felt was an unnecessary comment. Zucchini pancakes, a staple, were delicious. Lamb was cooked well. It was good, but I'm not running back there anytime soon.

Neighborhood find, great food and great drinks. I didn't realize that the brunch menu was until 4:30pm, thought I had booked dinner for Mothers Day but turned out fine. We would go back

My wife and I were meeting old friends for dinner and we wanted to get away from the usual Upper East Side and Upper Westside places we go with them. We all love middle eastern/mediterrean so I found Rintintin and it had good reviews and is in Nolita. Very casual and very energetic younger crowd . FIrst I want to sya how nice it was that my wife and I were early for our reservation and the hostess seated us despite our friends not being there. Our waitress was very friendly and engaging. We all shared our dishes and every dish we ordered was extraordinary in its flavor. Overall, great location, great service, great food, good prices and great ambience.
