The Grange Bar & Eatery serves up blackboard specials, comfort grub and drinks in a friendly farmhouse-inspired space, featuring cozy booths, white oak floors, brick-lined walls and antique chandeliers. This downtown restaurant and bar also offers a tidy list of ingredient heavy dishes. Treat yourself to a roasted-beet salad, some watermelon with feta or seared crab cakes, served next to celery slaw.

The Grange is a popular neighborhood watering hole. Alongside its rotating offering of beer and wine, the 74-seat bar offers a special beverage program that features specialty cocktails such as the Convent Stroll (soda, lemon juice, ginger, whiskey and honey). Open all through the week, The Grange stays in full swing until 4 a.m. every day, making it an appealing pick for the late night crowd.

The Grange did something that I still don't understand. We booked a 6:45 PM reservation via Open Table, and showed up at the restaurant at 6:35. We were told that our reservation did not exist, despite the confirmation I showed them on my phone. They asked, would you like to sit at a high-top at the front? I'm sorry but my 75 year old mother needs a comfortable seat, not a stool! So we sat outside, which was fine... then I looked at my messages and got a note from OpenTable saying my reservation had been cancelled by the restaurant at 6:27 PM!! The fact that you all are now sending me a request to tell you about my meal is doubly surprising.

A vegan, an omnivore and a pescatarian walk into a bar in Hamilton Heights... the punchline? Harlem Grange is passable for a vegan to enjoy drinks and dinner with two non-vegan friends. Not liking gin and the spicy rum drink being 'out,' my choices from the specialty cocktail menu were Granny's Apple and Granny's Apple. My husband had a Dogfish brew, a variety he hadn't tried before, and our friend had an aged bourbon on the rocks. With dinner, M. and I opted for wine, a cabernet and a garnacha, respectively. Hubby had another Dogfish. Starters were so-so. The king oyster/trumpet mushroom was salty and chewy. My omnivore friend picked the peppers. Mains were very good we all agreed. I ordered the BBQ cauliflower 'steak' and chick pea dish; it does not appear on the OpenTable menu. My dining companions both ordered the swordfish and were pleased with the texture, moistness and flavor. Our meal ended with bread pudding and coffee for my husband while M. and I finished our wine and reminiscing. Service was satisfactory. Our server was patient to a point with delay or indecision on ordering. The point where she asked "Do you need more time?" arrived sooner and the time she granted us grew longer at each subsequent stage of our meal. We took this in the fun spirit of the evening and had a good laugh about it.

The noise level is a bit challenging...when out with friends I want to talk to them, not shout. The restaurant was also VERY warm, not sure if there's a way to get some air in the back towards where the kitchen is but it did get quite uncomfortable. We were seated in the back and there was a very strong smell of restaurant cleaning fluid, not sure what was going on but it got really overwhelming as the evening went on. We love the Grange and will go back but, this trip was not the most positive of experiences...

Great neighborhood haunt. They change up their menu almost seasonally, but in living around the corner for 2 years, I've never had a bad dish. Ever. Also, next mf level grilled cheese. Do yourself a favor and get it as a starter.

Fantastic food, scallops were perfect, cooked just right and delicious, great accents. Restaurant was very busy but staff was on it and attentive, and friendly. Tables too small and too close together. Not a good place to put your coats. Come on, its winter in NYC, people have coats, scarves, and bags. One should not have to sit on them or wear them to have a nice dinner.

We’re long time regulars who came in for Christmas dinner. The service was very, very inattentive and ungracious. Drinks were poured very short in comparison to every other time. Sent back the stuffed pork as it was cold with congealed cheese. We went in for Thanksgiving and it was great. Sometimes this place is wonderful and other times it is terrible. The inconsistency makes it difficult to want to return.

Ordinarily the service here is very good. On this night our server was lovely and pleasant. But service was extremely slow, and it wasn't crowded. And we had to ask for simple things like bringing bread, spoons for coffee, extra utensils for desert. I will continue to patronize the business but this was a disappointment as I'd brought friends who hadn't been to the grange before

Second time at this great eatery. Just love it. Food, vibe etc. Just great.
The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because it is not a 5-star fancy shmancy place Le Bernardin.

My husband we were staying in an Airbnb in Harlem and I had read about The Grange when looking for a place to have a nice meal. Right from the get-go we were warmly greeted the menu was unique, our server was responsive and informative. I had the curry pumpkin soup which had a perfect level of heat; my husband started w/ the kale salad my husband had the vegan bolognese & raves about it. Overall a wonderful experience & we can’t wait to return. I seldom write reviews, especially rambling ones....but The Grange earned a rave!
