No 5-Star rating today. With only one exception, our lunch was the usual great food, great service meal. Our server seemed somewhat intent on not listening to the orders, which were repeated several times. Most came out correctly and mine was the only meal sent back since it was an entirely different salad from what I had ordered. Several people stopped by to apologize and the correct salad cane out shortly. My only suggestion? I may be old-fashioned, but I hate having to ask for bread to accompany a meal. It’s a bistro — Please, serve the bread and butter.

The $40 steak was the only stand-out disappointment -- It was much smaller (thin and a bit fatty) than the price should have commanded -- but we still had an enjoyable, romantic dinner celebrating our wedding anniversary. My wife and I met at The Odeon, so it will always hold a special place for both of us.

Our waitress was obnoxious and we felt that all she cares about was turning the table. We had to ask her multiple times for ketchup for fries.

The Odeon, after all these years, remains one of the great dining places in NYC...I have eaten there since it opened in its current bistro incarnation, and even prior when it was a neighborhood factory lunch room. Albeit the often over-the-top sound level, The Odeon is a wonderful place.

The best ever. We only get to The Oeon once every so often. That will now change. What a great late Saturday night dinner! From the spicy chicken dumplings, mussels, steak and plenty of frites (fries), drinks and the desserts. A total extravagance but well worth it. Don't miss this oasis in Tribeca.

This was my second time dining at the Odeon and it was an experience just as enjoyable as the first: incredibly welcoming and professional hosts and wait staff (especially our wonderful server Uki), excellent food at great value, a lively and vibrant atmosphere, and overall a fabulous setting for a dinner. The hosts were particularly gracious as they went out of their way to accommodate our request for a booth table, which was especially noteworthy and appreciated. This is a remarkably good restaurant, and one that I look forward to returning to soon.
