Fools is consistently very good. We ate outside and they have fans over all the tables in the summer. Our waitress couldn’t have been better from checking on us periodically, keeping our wine glasses and water glasses full and just general chit chat. She made the experience even better. We live in the neighborhood and this is always our go to if we want something a bit more special. You can’t go wrong.

I've been going to this restaurant on and off for 20 years. On a recent trip to NYC, I invited several friends for brunch, and it was a wonderful experience. The server, Samantha, was knowledgeable, professional, and delightful. The food was excellent, and it was truly an enjoyable way to cap off a weekend to my hometown.

Great experience. Only problem was that the open table reservation did not appear on the Odeons system, even after confirmation email. The Odeon accommodated our party graciously. This lapse happened to other diners the same evening.

Lovely welcome as is customary. Outside dining is well set to feel permanent, not like sitting in a shack.

Took my daughters for the nostalgia, was amazed by the levels of skill in both the kitchen and front of house. Odeon is like a beautiful nyc women aging with grace and style.

A classic. We’ve been going to the Odeon for 30 years. Thank God some NYC originals are still around - and having stood the test of time - clearly it’s a great restaurant. No surprises. Exceptional service food and ambience time after time.

The food and ambience were great. The waitstaff didn't seem to want us there. There may have been a staff training at the time. Our order arrived out of sequence- food first than beverages. Minimal checking in if we needed anything else. The check was offered before we were asked for dessert or coffee.

It was nice to be in a bustling restaurant and for nostalgia Odeon still has a festive vibe. However the service was very slow and the quality of the food - while not bad was not exceptional. Except for the fries which were great! It’s still a fun classic NYC spot, just not as good as it used to be. Everything just seemed a little careless.

Stellar, friendly, professional staff. Excellent meal. We began with oysters and shrimp - so fresh and flavorful. The lobster roll was beautifully prepared and equally fresh and delicious as was the branzino accompanied by vegetables. So good!!We enjoyed all with a well-priced bottle of Sancerre. Always a pleasure.

We had a great time! Seating was outdoors but under a fan, so it was very comfortable despite humidity of NYC summer. Service was attentive even though wait staff had to tend tables both indoor and out. I tried the frisée salad and it was delightful. Was very happy to be back at the Odeon.

After all these years it still pulsates with the energy of New York. The food is good but not the point. This is destination dining. The equation is simple: come here for a great time.

Decent meal. Wine list very overpriced and they had to remake my omelet (forget the cheese). They have a lot of wait staff for the number of patrons. Not sure if this is a good or bad thing. Prices might be high due to this.

First time since the beginning of the pandemic that the food wasn’t wonderful. Lobster roll missing lobster(way too much filler)which always has been delicious. Onion soup watery minus usual cheese and grilled cheese over cooked. We’ll give it a pass this time and chalk it up to an off night in the kitchen

My server was super pushy, tried to remove my plate when I was half done, took my drink when it wasn’t finish and took my coffee cup on a togo container away completely full. It’s like he was trying to get me out of there as quickly as possible.
And usually I will over look service if the food wows me but it was a bit meh. Also happy to pay more for great food but I don’t think you get your money’s worth.
Kind of disappointed with my first visit, maybe I’ll come back and give them another chance
