Have been going to Odeon for years, and they never disappoint. The food is always delicious, and the staff is wonderful, especially Roya, who is always so sweet and professional. During Covid, The Odeon is one of our go-to places for good quality delicious food, for a safe and clean environment, and now during the winter, tables have heaters for the outdoor set up. Highly recommend!

Great structure with one long wall open - which for some reason other restaurants don’t get it - that if you enclose the whole area, you might as well be inside dining. And the heaters worked (surprisingly rare - apparently they don’t know how to fix them, or don’t have the money) and we’re strong enough. Lighting was good and as always the food and service were very good. There were tables outside the clear enclosure - with clear barriers and heaters, but I don’t know how warm they were. We were very happy with our pandemic dining experience.

Been going to Odeon since it opened. Always inviting, consistent and just a great local neighborhood standby. Had brunch New Year's Day with my family - loved the kale lentil soup, a new addition to the menu!

Not all of the tables have heat lamps directly over or even really near them and we were sat at a table like this so it was a cold experience. I understand and absolutely sympathize with the challenges of the weather but it was really cold.

Odeon is one of the best restaurants in Manhattan. The outdoor dining was a great experience because the heaters worked so well. We found that we could take coats off in the 40+ degree weather.

We four are old familiars, and Odeon one of our favorite haunts. A little heartbreaking, knowing how severely they and thousands of eateries have been impacted by the pandemic. Fervent hopes they’re able to sustain through the winter months!

We sat at a table in the outdoor dining
Area, it enclosed well and good heating
Arrangement. The tables are not too crowded and with table cloth and the ambiance was pleasing. Only one table has very noisy guests but that is to be expected. The waitress was too busy in which is good thing, the bathrooms are nicely renovated with interesting Art Deco style. Indoor also pleasant.

This restaurant was a bit of a disappointment. We dined early on a Friday night and took our seats shortly after 6 PM. What we found were two very annoying things. First, there was no waiter assigned to our table. Rather, it appeared to be a tagteam arrangement involving no less than three different servers. None of them appeared to talk to each other so we had maddening instances in which three different waiters would come by the table and ask the same thing (how is the food?) and equally maddening incidents in which we could go for some amount of time without anyone attending to our needs (e.g. more water). Second, it was obvious that all of the waiters were anxious to turn the table and all three of them came by as we were ordering dessert and started clearing the table, asking us if we wanted anything else, wiping the table as we lifted our glass, etc. When my wife asked for a refill on her coffee, the waiter’s dissatisfaction was written all over her face. Frankly, the three of these servers did everything but pull our chairs out from under us after about 75 minutes. Besides this, food is OK, the noise level is robust and the prices are typical Manhattan, i.e. Inflated by about 30%.

We went to brunch at the Odeon for our daughters,25th. It was an upbeat crowd, very busy. Staff was attentive and knowledgeable. We did not ask for a candle but our server surprised us with one on our donuts, nice touch. The food was excellent, certainly overpriced for the level of cuisine but that is the area, we knew what we were getting into.
