Everything was great, except I do recall some poor (radio-like) music being played in the background. If they insist on playing music outdoors at Little Owl, I’d suggest that they just play something like classical or solely instrumental, not music with words - like soft rock, or even classic rock (which I normally like!). But recorded music with lyrics is inappropriate for fine restaurant dining.
Great food, great outdoor dinning both from an ambiance and social distancing perspective.
A really great dining experience (very good food, very good service, nice ambiance, but a salad, an entrée, and dessert with two glasses of wine and no sides will set you back $140 (with COVID charge, tax, and 18% tip).
We got seated outside, but there were no heaters on our table (the ones beside us had). Coffee was watered down and downright cold, food was a very small portion and cold as well. Orange juice was completely sour. Had the chilaquiles and eggs were overdone and guac did not even cover 3 nachos. Very dissapointed
Outdoor dining was so warm! And the food was, as always, magnificent.
Loved dining at The Little Owl. Super warm outdoor heaters, spaced out with plastic shields between and delicious wine and food!
best outdoor dining in NYC
Booking the reservation was easy, we were greeted warmly, waiter explained all the dishes, The wine menu is great. Our dinner to desert was delicious. Thank you.
Great happy hour! And such a cute setup.
Food was really good, service could’ve been better.
I waited a long time for the bill and then he wouldn’t refill my coffee as often as I liked.
best outdoor dining setup yet -- was 20 degrees out but was able to take off my coat and not have frozen toes. Food was amazing too and actually stayed warm the whole time unlike some of my other outdoor dining experiences elsewhere.
Great food and wine! The outdoor dining set-up keeps you extra warm.
Staff took a lot of precautions. they do charge a covid relief fee but i understand why. great food and service, def. a good outdoor experience—lots of heaters!
Outdoor dining due to Cuomo. Our first time outside in the middle of winter and it was actually perfect. Food amazing and awesome service
Joey is amazing. Get his cookbook. Outdoor seating is warm.
Had dinner with a party of 4 last Saturday when it was about 35 degrees at 6pm. The heaters are FANTASTIC - two per table. We were literally sweating. Do not worry about being cold, even if you're a baby with the cold (like me). The food is delicious, wine was great, and service is amazing. Such a cute area and really fun. Would go back any day. Made a reservation through Open Table which was easy. Overall incredibly impressed with my experience
Loved it. Really special evening. Wonderful service and super duper tasty. Order 3 deserts like we did!
Terrific, warm and festive, great to have this little gem in the neighborhood, maybe I should keep it a secret. Food was delicious and service terrific.
It was such a pleasant and delicious dining experience!
so delicious! they had ample outdoor heating
Amazing service! Highly recommend this for brunch
Great food and great service.
Great experience, delicious food, would strongly recommend.
Amazing food and excellent service. They also have a great outdoor setup, the night we went the real feel was 17, but each table has its own overhead heater as well as one to aim at your legs, we were very comfortable considering how cold it was.
Best burger ever, lovely server, great outdoor seating set up. I'm so happy we braved the cold because brunch warmed us all up:)
10/10!!! Excellent burger and Caesar salad
One of our favorite spots. I come here with a group, and every single time we are blown away by the service. Jordan is outstanding!
Lovely dinner experience in a covid world. They have good winter structure outside with heaters. Service and food were great as always.
Outdoor with heaters at each table. Food delicious as always. Nice to see it’s busy still with outdoor only option.
The server forgot my entree. Then it came undercooked.
Portions were very small for the price. Two tiny tacos for $23??? And the chilaquiles looked like a plate of flamin hot doritos. Waiter forgot my companion’s poached eggs and took forever to bring out.
We've loved the little owl for years but were SO IMPRESSED with the outside dining situtation. Food and service was just as amazing as ever and the dining felt very safe with amazing heaters. COVID set up was so impressive and on a cold night we were warm and well-fed. Thanks to the amazing little owl team working so hard to make that happen!
The pork chop never disappoints with a couple new additions to the menu. As delicious as always! Can't wait to be back!!!
Four of us had dinner and four of us felt sick afterwards. Not a good sign.
Outdoor seating has heater at your feet and above. So glad to be able to take off my coat and eat comfortably and really enjoyed the delicious meal. Has catch of the day fish entree LOVED. Would totally go back again.
The wait staff attentive and sweet.
Yes totally support NYC restaurants and their staff throughout this pandemic!
Lovely and romantic. Appetizer was so good I almost ate the plate it came on. Main course was a little less exciting. Maybe the chef was a bit off? Hard to judge in a pandemic, everything is suboptimal - I mean, we were eating OUTSIDE IN THE MIDDLE OF WINTER. Ambiance is still great. We will always return.
Made a reservation and got a table inside the partially enclosed tent. There were plastic partitions between each table and each table had it's own heater - it was quite lovely, and very comfortable.
The french toast was good, but even for NYC standards was a bit small for $15. My bellini was also $15, and with Little Owl choosing to charge the COVID recovery tax (5%, which I'm not necessarily against), my small brunch came to $40 with tax. It's a lot to ask for eating in the elements, but the service was very good and it was nice to have an in-person meal with a friend!
Lovely! Food was amazing! Service was lovely (thank you Katie!!) They have done their outdoor space better than most! This lifetime NYer just found her new favorite!!!
