We hadn't been to Odeon in a while and we were glad we returned. From the time we asked to be reseated to a quieter table all through our interactions with our servers, we were treated with good humor, courtesy and efficiency. My salmon burger and frites were perfectly cooked. We could have used a few more of the fresh donuts in our dessert. We definitely will be back.

The food and service is consistently good quality at Odeon. Prices, however, are high for such very small servings. For instance, the fish portion size is small, which is ok for me, but it is priced as if it were a bigger meal. Same with the wine portions, which come in baby wine glasses. The wine is good but the amount is absurdly small for the price.

The menu is boring. No imagination. --- Too much chicken everywhere.... When my trout came, it was nothing you would want to eat again.

This place feels past its prime. The waiter raved about the trout and it was kind of tasteless. Even as a New Yorker, pricing felt very high.

Great fun hasn’t really changed since the 80’s. Solid menu and nice waitstaff. I did not like fatty bacon but the burger was so good. I would recommend it for out of towners and families. Or those who are nostalgic as I was.

First time diner though I have walked by a million times.

The environment is nice but the food and service were totally average. I was there for lunch, perhaps at night it is a different story.

I won’t be back as there are better options close by.

Had guests from california. Wanted to give them a true NY brunch experience. Also wanted a place that accepts Brunch reservations. That is why I chose the Odeon. Well Must say it lacks the pizazz and cache it once had. It is tired. The food was so mediocre with not an ounce of originality or that special something. Every dish was bland and boring. The topper was the end of the meal.. After ordering drinks, and entrees, everyone agreed we would just order coffee, no dessert as we weren't hungry. However, I had mentioned upon arriving that it was my daughter's birthday. They brought out a small plate, like a saucer for a cup with a candle stuck in the middle! Really? Not even a cookie or a chocolate? Better to not bring anything. In all my days, this I have never seen. Just a single birthday candle!! It was the epitome of tacky we all thought. Anyway, it gave us a good laugh!! Never going back.
