    Cozy meal on rainy night at Little Owl was delightful and restorative. Greeting by hostess was so pleasant! Took our coats, found place for umbrella, welcomed us to sit anywhere. Waiter came promptly and was efficient and friendly. Food got promptly served with the highlight being the duck appetizer and lemon dessert. Prosecco with lavender cocktail was also another hit. A fun and dependable choice when in the village. Bravo!

    Nice menu selections for brunch, but portion size could've been more sizeable for the price. We ordered the salmon and egg scramble. Great, attentive wait staff. but a bit too noisy. That's Sunday brunch in Manhattan, though...vibrant! Overall, a cozy, charming place, and I do recommend it.

    The experience was overall wonderful, the only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars was because there was a business meeting going on in the middle of the restaurant about the restaurant. The 3 people were very loud and I felt that if they were going to have the meeting there they should have moved it to the corner of the restaurant and tried to speak quieter instead of speaking loudly by 3 tables with customers. It definitely put on a damper on our experience.

    We spent a magical New Year’s Eve at Little Owl. It was a rainy night and we guests huddled outside as tables were slow to turn over, but the staff were utter pros and kept us dry under the awning, exuding calm and dispensing good cheer, and rewarding us with gratis champagne upon being seated. The prix fixe with wine pairing was a great value in this city of bloated “special occasion” menus. The surf and turf was the best savory item on the menu, while the desserts were outstanding — several to choose from, but we were very happy with our pear tart and cheesecake with blueberry compote. Midnight featured more champagne, noise makers, and silly hats, and group renditions of Auld Lang Syne. I’ve loved little owl for years and it was the perfect place to ring in the new year.

    Barely felt any heat on a frigid winter night, since the servers had to keep opening the door to serve outside tables. This place is tiny, but serves good food. Overall, I remember the service being much better, perhaps it was an off night.
