A friend joined us for drinks at the bar followed by dinner. We were early; nonetheless, both the bar and the restaurant were filled to overflowing. That fact did not alter the well cooked food and the professional service that we always find at the Odeon. A wonderfully festive evening.

Still fun after all these years. Some interesting dishes plus the usual french bistro fare, which I found comforting. (Not every meal has to be an adventure.) Great atmosphere, excellent people-watching. Both my appetizer and main course were less than piping hot but it was a crowded Saturday night, and you can't have everything. Would go back.

We ordered $40 steaks each and they looked like they came from a blister pack from the local supermarket, very subpar. Their interpretation of spicy dumplings for a french bistro was terrible - doused in Frank's Red Hot. Service was decent, though.

The Odeon was a hotspot in the 80th and were told it has a revival. So we were a little dissappointed when we got there and the place was only half full. The selection on the menu was okay and overall not bad but also nothing special.

Even on busy Thanksgiving evening, the Odeon was great, as always!
Delicious meal, and courteous, efficient service. Though one of NY's
"old reliable" restaurants, it's difficult to beat. Never dissapoints!

The steak frites aren't exceptional (I'd prefer steakhouse fries to the McDonald's-esque variety served here) but are solid. The French Onion soup was on point. Service was prompt, not fussy. A solid bistro, a less overwrought alternative to Balthazar.

Great restaurant in the heart of Tribeca, a neighborhood institution. Food is always locally sourced and well prepared and d licious, Special Thanksgiving dinner was excellent .
The service is friendly and attentive. Have been coming to The Odeaon for many years, and always enjoy. It’s a little like coming home.

As more and more people we decided we would go out for Thanksgiving dinner. The turkey dinner special was $40 each plus $13 for a mashed potato side which we shared. Although the stuffing was excellent and the carrots and brussel sprouts very good, I don't know how they could call it roast turkey breast. More like turkey roll. horrid. And the potato puree was luke -warm. A restaurant of this calibre should have been able to make real turkey. The chocolate pudding for dessert was good. Somehow I think they missed doing what they were capable of.

Odeon is real food for real New Yorkers, a true New York brasserie. Salads and steak tartar are reliably perfect, as is the sundae, and either half-bottle of Bordeaux is great value. But it is the food-and-ambiance together with the warm and welcoming staff that make the place.

I can always count on the Odeon for a great time.
This time it was brunch with an old friend in from London. We had a delicious meal in a cosy booth and chatted for an hour just catching up. The room was full but no one chased us away. My guest had the eggs benedict and warm doughnuts for desert! I had a simple egg dish with hot tea. We shared stories, photos, and I am so pleased that we had this time together. She is taking a new job, and will be moving onto Bagdad, Iraq soon. She'll have a risky living and work environment soon. But for today, we had a safe unhurried time to enjoy a great mean and good company. Thanks Odeon!

Having a 10:00 breakfast on a weekday morning at Odeon is a civilized way to begin the day. The restaurant is quiet (for a change) and the kitchen continue to turn out perfect omelettes as ordered. Check it out!

I've been eating here for years, and EVERY SINGLE TIME it's a superlative experience! I travel a lot for work, and as part of my job, tend to 'dine, not just eat', and the Odeon is definitely a place to dine.

Get a cocktail, some apps, wine, an entree & some 'extras' (bottom left page of the menu), and don't skip dessert! And enjoy/savor the whole experience - well worth it! My typical tab is around $130 p/p, w/good wine, just FYI.

Cheers!

The Odeon is a solid choice in lower Manhattan. The food is good, the service is dependable, and the drinks are well made. They also handle gluten free requests well for those of us who are allergic to wheat, gluten, and their grainy friends. (There isn't a separate gluten free menu, per se, but the servers are well informed, and they always consult/alert the chef.) The space is a little loud, so it isn't really a spot for quiet conversation. That said, it has authentic charm and ambience, so I'd never rule it out for date night or a casual dinner with a couple of friends. I wouldn't recommend it, however, for big groups. It also isn't the kind of place where rambunctious kids under 10 can run around without being dangerously underfoot.
