    Amy actually called me when we were late because we could not find the place and she talked me through the maze of the west village! the food was superb and they could not have been kinder or more accommodating. And the next day they called because my friend left a credit card. Highly recommend this place..it is a bit out of the way perhaps but we caught a cab after a block away in no time. Enjoy!

    Had dinner here with a friend after seeing a show in the neighborhood. The standout for me was the service. The host who I believe may be the owner checked on us a few times and made us feel very welcome. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. They really delivered on the neighborhood spot vibe. I loved how cozy it was inside. The food and drinks were also very good! Had the special of the night and meatball sliders.

    The food was okay-was, was expecting it to be much better. The fries were soggy & not cooked enough & the french toast was a little tough. The ambience inside was average for the price and the hype. I believe there are much better breakfast/brunch places like Dante & Buvette in West Village.

    It’s been a dream to eat here for years! The food was delicious and couldn’t get enough of it. The ambience was nice and comfortable, it was homey, familiar, and beautiful! The servers were very nice. It was cool to feel like a celebratory for an hour while people took a bunch of pictures outside the building. I can’t wait to come back!

    This out of the way spot is well worth the effort. A tiny restaurant that benefits from outdoor seating, it is simple and delicious. With an interesting wine list as well as cocktails and nightly menu specials, this restaurant should be on every foodies short list.

    Food was great and service was excellent. It was just a bit annoying to have so many tour groups taking pictures outside. The building is feature in the show friends so easily a hundred people stopped to taking pictures and it felt like being a fish in a bowl. Besides that it was wonderful

    Another great visit to Little Owl! This is my daughter’s favorite restaurant when we are in the city. We always make the trip to the village even if it’s just for this place! We got the Caesar salad and Evan’s chicken and split it between us. They were so helpful by splitting everything before bringing it out. Everything was delicious. The chicken was moist, flavorful, and tender. The Caesar salad was prefect for a hot July day. It was refreshing with a bright with subtle lemon flavor and yet, all at the same time, comforting. They brought out some ice cream of my daughter’s birthday and made her feel so special. We went for a early dinner at 5pm during the week and it was quiet. This restaurant has it all: great environment, wonderful staff, and amazing food!

    Such a lively, cozy really good brunch spot in the West Village! Service is so friendly and very warm. The food is fresh and very good ( little gem salad with PERFECTLY prepared poached eggs, the surf and turf tacos were enjoyed, the asparagus hash was tasty and the beignets were fun.). This place is great for a fun, casual brunch and we will return soon!
