I never take time to submit reviews, but I’ll make an exception for RinTinTin.

Rintintin is a favorite brunch spot. Super fresh ingredients, appealing menu with nice assortment of brunch classics, hearty manly food as well as vegetarian options. Something for everyone. The staff is attentive. The location is great. I love this restaurant!

The service was so slow—it took 20 minutes for someone to take our order (and we had to ask)—and we didn’t get the dessert we ordered (though a server brought us a couple of tequila shots to make up for it). If I’m going to an expensive restaurant, part of the draw is that the service is good—this was not worth it.

Soups were great, drinks really perfect, and main courses were overall good. One of our steak dishes was really, really rare (ordered medium rare), but my friend didn't want to send it back. Great service and we enjoyed the outdoor seating. There's a larger, more fun/energetic outdoor seating area right by the restaurant door, but we were seated around the corner in a quieter and slightly more depressing outdoor seating area — but it did make conversation really easy and we were happy with the experience! I would return.

I LOVE Rintintin! I’ve been going for years and it’s quality has remained consistent. I don’t even live in NY anymore but every time I’m back I make a point to stop in for brunch. It’s always been about their brunch for me. The steak and eggs- yes. Eggs Norwegian- double yes. Halloumi bacon club...so good! Whatever, the dirty look I got from a German tourist for having a sandwich with EXTRA bread was worth it. File this place under top five for me for sure.

I’ve visited twice already, the food is always fresh and comes to the table quickly. The presentation of their cocktails, appetizers, entrees, EVERYTHING is gorgeous! Not only are you paying for quality food, you’re paying for culinary art. Really lovely outdoor and indoor seating space too.

Great food. Service was a bit lackluster, but could be due to knocking off rust due to COVID absence.

Would go again. Please finish your meal with the Churros.

Atmosphere here is casual but trendy and lively. A great spot to meet up with a friend or date for drinks and dinner. Great throwback music playing all night. Cocktails were perfect all night - get the Morrison! Our apps were delicious, the entrees just ok. Service was very friendly but inattentive. Multiple times we placed orders for drinks and they never came. We had to make significant effort to flag our waiter down to order anything. At the end of the might they asked us to pay in cash or Venmo bc they’d credit card system was down. It would’ve been nice if they had told us that at the start of the meal.

Service was great, food was fantastic, but just a heads up a reservation doesn’t guarantee if you’re going to be inside. I made a reservation here when indoor dining became open and we had to sit outside. It was still nice but it was cold ofcourse and I assumed the reservation would give us an inside table. They need to be more clear on which tables are for outside and inside for the reservations. Still a great place to eat.

The outdoor set up was very comfortable and the overall experience was one of the best we've had dining out since things opened back up for dining outdoors. The food was well priced, generously portioned and the service on point.

Will definitely be back soon!

A truly wonderful experience. My mom and I came here for dinner after a long day of apartment touring. We got a table outside that faced the street, which was perfect on a summer’s night. The octopus was divine, so tender. The muscles were a generous portion, and made to perfection. The side of smashed fingerling potatoes with rosemary is a must. The service was impeccable.

I’ve eaten here before and remembered the food being delicious - but the zucchini chips were soggy and the meatballs were frankly disgusting. Service was great and vibe is great so maybe something was just off in the kitchen.
