Nice service, reliable food, some really solid options if you have vegetarians in the group. This is a nice little neighborhood eatery. I love getting their Mediterranean appetizer board, which is nice value for the money with lots of veggies, bread, and dips, for either a starter or a main.

Simple but good quality food.
Sadly VERY overpriced for overall experience - particularly the wine prices.

I was incredibly disappointed by the food and service. We were provided with a shot class full of milk for two iced coffees. When asked for more milk, we were given a double shot glass full of milk. The “chopped salad” was just dressed lettuce and some cherry tomatoes. The hollandaise sauce was incredibly thick and the poached eggs were over cooked. The service was slow, unprofessional and unwelcoming.

I saw the glowing reviews for this place and booked it for lunch with a friend. When we got there I noticed the B rating in the window, but stayed anyway as the staff was lovely and the ambience was nice. The service was quite inattentive, which I can live with, but the most disappointing part was the food. In a neighborhood full of amazing culinary options this one just doesn't cut it.

Service was poor because the staff was rude. I went for lunch before and it was great so, I decided to take a friend here for dinner. The staff was rude, walked away every time we went to ask for anything. We weren’t being difficult! I asked for a drink and we wanted to know about items on the menu. Instead of telling us the kitchen was closed, she just ignored us and walked away. They also never smile. Geez. I really liked this place the first time I went for lunch. After that subpar dinner experience and bland dinner food, I won’t be going back.

Waitstaff is consistently rude. I've been a few times without a reservation, and hoped this time with a reservation I'd receive decent service and some nice attitudes. Definitely not the case. We chose to just order an appetizer and went into Chinatown for the rest of our dinner.

Have been wanting to dine here for a while — finally made it in and was a bit disappointed. The staff seemed as if it was all their first day on the job, which certainly didn’t give us a great first impression. Went here for a dinner with a close friend — we had plenty of time to chat and not get interrupted, but it was mainly due to the lack of supervision from our server. Took way too long for her to show up and take our order. The floor manager was running around just as much as the servers so it was clear that it was an ‘off’ night. The decor is great and the vibe is right. Food is pretty good! I was not impressed by the cocktail I had (jalapeño cucumber margarita) - it wasn’t balanced, way too spicy - couldn’t even taste the cucumber. Even though I didn’t totally enjoy my first experience at rintintin, I would give this place a second chance! The decor and vibe are cozy and laid back, that’s not easy to find.

Had great dinner with friends. Waitress was great knowledgeable about menu and wine. Generous pour with my vodka LOVE that! Staff overall is wonderful great attitude. Have been here in a quiet afternoon bartender courteous and just enough attention! Great people watching. It’s no wonder a great gem overall.

One of our all around favorite places to go. Food is delicious, creative, fresh and reasonably priced. Some of the best grilled octopus and burrata in the city. Muscles are awesome and the flank steak we had recently was wonderful. And the way they make their potatoes / crisps is especially delicious. We like sitting at the bar to eat and have drinks. Bartenders are always good and friendly.

This place was a bit noisey but it was in a lively Saturday soho night way. We had the zucchini chips, which i highly recommend I think it was my favorite part of the meal. My boyfriend had the mushroom risotto and i had the steak pita, the risotto was delicious and the steak was good but i wasn't entirely wow'd by it. It's a fun place and I'd give it another visit.

Half the menu wasn’t even available. Was only told after hitting the jackpot with those items on repeated occasions instead of upfront. Ok, maybe you run out of supplies later on day... but add one waitress servicing several maybe 6+ tables and you get terrible service on top of a menu that isn’t available. Sad because the food is delicious, but the service left much much to be desired.

Hands down one of the most insanely horrific experiences I've had in 20+ years of dining out in NYC. Food was RAW - sent it back (which i never do), still raw - pink chicken, vegetables you couldn't even cut with a knife, etc.... then they rudely asked us to move to the bar to order another drink bc they needed our table. NEVER AGAIN!
