We arrived early and were offered iced coffees to sit outside with while we waited. We opted to sit at the bar to get seated faster. The service was top notch and our food was great! I would absolutely recommend. It’s a tiny but adorable spot in the west village. And it’s entertaining to see all the tourists gawking at the building from Friends! It certainly didn’t seem to be top of mind for anyone who works there.
Food was amazing... service was good... only downside was all the tourists outside taking pictures of the place.
My finacee and I came here to celebrate her birthday.
The ambiance was great, the restaurant was full but didn't feel too crowded, the food was delicious, and the service was great!
We were there with a guest who had never been before. He had the chicken and just loved the whole experience
OMG The Little Owl is always amazing and I love to eat there as often as possible! Not inexpensive but worth every penny! And I love Chris. Can’t wait to go back.
Still our favorite restaurant! Always a perfect experience!
It was superb. Just wished there was something to buffer the noise level to chat
Amazing as always!
Although we expected a delicious meal (based on the excellent reviews that we read), we were very disappointed. The only dish that we liked was the eggplant parmigiana. Also--the olive oil that accompanied the bread was really excellent.
The main courses were terrible. Both of us ordered chicken that was inundated with much too much salt. I actually couldn't eat it. My friend ordered mashed potatoes with the chicken. The mashed potatoes were green and tasted horrible.
I would NOT recommend this restaurant to anyone. It's a little funky -in a nice way-but the food left so much to be desired.
I should mention that I'm not easy to please,but the tastes of the dishes were incredibly disappointing. What a letdown!!!
Little Owl is every bit as enchanting as I remembered it to be, and this makes it absolutely legendary. From the time I called to say we’d be 10 minutes late for our reservation to the time we left, the service was warm, courteous, intuitive, and skilled. The food, as always, was spectacular. The chicken is the best I may ever have had, and the bibb and beets is a splendid little salad. Go if you can get a reservation which are still hard for come by after all head years— and rightfully so!
Lovely little place with great service. Brunch was good, fresh and quick.
Been coming here for 10 years and never disappoints!Thank you for a terrific brunch
Yearly trip to NY wouldn’t be complete with a visit to Little Owl! First time to have weekend brunch though— it was fantastic! (And meatball sliders go with every meal!) Love The Little Owl!
Fabulous west village restaurant.Buzzy atmosphere and great food and wine.
Friendly service.Didnt realise it was the exterior location for Central Perk which is not played up to attract customers.Will return regularly in the future.
The food and service are outstanding, the wine selection by the bottle is excellent. Thank you little owl
Nice cozy place. Good comfort food and nice cocktails
The place is very cosy and nice and we’ve been welcomed promptly.
Excellent selection of music and fast service!
We sure like to return!
Very accommodating of late arrivals in our party. We had a wonderful time!
Great food and great service.
Barely enough space to seat two people comfortably per table - they are trying to squeeze in too many people into a very tiny space with the staff having difficulty navigating the tables themselves and this was on a quiet Friday afternoon!
Do not recommend - there are many other enjoyable, roomy places in the village that don't require acrobatics to get to your table.
Fantastic food. Flavorful and homey. Great friendly service.
As always, the food and service were superb. Totally gracious staff, delicious and innovative food, with lovely views of the beautiful West Village outside.
Incredible food and wine options. Small restaurant that might require a little patience with reservations and space but it so very well worth it .
Love it! Wonderful experience.
The experience is perfect! The food, atmosphere and the staff are all A+.
This place is the ultimate in romantic dining. We were late for our reservation, yet they welcomed us like long lost friends. The food was excellent. Not to be missed.
Laid back, warm and inviting and one of my favorite meals ever. Salmon with wild mushroom risotto. Incredible.
Wonderful dining experience. We went for Easter brunch and had a great meal. The service is really good, everyone was engaged in providing a great dining experience. The food is really fabulous. We all ordered something quite different and everyone enjoyed their choice. I had the skate sandwich and it was a really high level fish and chips type dish. My mom had an egg dish and said it was the best poached egg that she ever had!! We also tried the eggplant side dish and my daughter was hoping to bring it home as a leftover but no such luck because we ate every bite, it was that good. I sort of looked around at other diners and everyone cleaned their plate. It isn't easy to get a reservation at this restaurant because it is small and it is a gem, so if you can get a table, grab it and enjoy!!
As always, we had an amazing meal. This recent visit was for Sunday brunch. French toast absolutely delicious and amazingly fluffy, not heavy as most French toast dishes. Egg scramble yummy, and beignets a nice way to finish off our meal (good dish to share with the table).
I give an enthusiastic two thumbs up!
Must make a reservation ahead of time.
Fantastic west village gem. Lovely hosts, staff is very attentive and knows every item on the menu/wine list, food is simply delicious and on top their music playlist is über-cool.
A wonderful spot!
Una excelente experiencia. Muy bueno todo!
Booked this restaurant prior to trip to New York from the UK. Absolutely loved it. The staff were so attentive, the food was amazing and the wine was divine. Would recommend this restaurant. It was one of the highlights of our trip. Thank you.
Every time I’m in NYC I eat here. It has never disappointed me!
Awesome service and food!!
Cute brunch spot with good service. Typical tight seating and the prices are on the high end but the food and service are good. You are definitely paying for the location. Be prepared to watch tourists take pictures of the friends apartment for the entire time you are there. Still worth it!
Such a cute spot, great staff super friendly and the food was amazing. We ordered a second plate of the French toast it was so good!
