The Odeon never disappoints! It has remained an industry standard for many years, and the quality of food and service has remained exceptional. I hope it remains forever.

Loved the historic feel of old NY. Really overpriced mediocre French onion soup. Delish Croque Monsieur.

Always a favorite. Love the scene since 25 yars ago. The food was very good this time, except for profiteroles, which were dry and uninteresting. The service is seamless, swift, smooth and unobtrusive. Despite the noise level, it’s comforting to hear conversation en masse. No rock and roll music to shout over.

Odeon never disappoints. Brook trout, lamb, frites, molten chocolate cake all delicious - with right proportions. Staff sophisticated but friendly. Love the New York atmosphere.

I work in the courthouse next to the restaurant and have dined at this restaurant often for business lunches. This time, the hostess refused to honor my booth request - a booth sat empty for 20 minutes - then, when she realized I had "status," she moved my party of 3 to the booth. That is precisely the kind of arrogance I try to avoid. In future, I will find another place to dine.

The Odeon never really seems to change, but that's not a bad thing. There are "classics" on the menu that are a comfort when you come here. It's very lively, but you can still have a conversation. Over the years, the prices have inched up and are now a bit excessive for what is being offered. Still, you're at The Odeon!

Staff was lovely and extremely sweet. I have dietary restrictions and they catered to it completely (they added no salt to my meal). I also loved the food nothing super complex but well prepared and light. Very quaint atmosphere as well.

My nicoise salad was almost sent back. Poor knife work and less-than-fresh ingredients. Calamari was wonderful. Service was solid. Interior was old school and filled with well dressed business people.

Lovely evening with friends in a perfect table: round and in the window. Drinks all around followed by very good food, including some specials of the day and the new pasta dish (mushroom ravioli: good) on the permanent menu. Although the restaurant got busier and busier, we were not rushed out. Everyone was gracious. No wonder Odeon is a favorite.

We chose the Odeon for my birthday because we couldn't get a reservation at Balthazar. We were a party of 6. The place was packed and noisy. It was difficult to hear each other talk. The service was merely okay. When we'd order a new bottle of wine, it took a long time to arrive. The food was acceptable, but not "wow". We ordered "Pressed Octopus" as an appetizer. I know what that dish is supposed to look like. It wasn't "pressed". The artichoke dip was fine, but no different than a neighborhood pub. My main course was the Steak Frites. Very acceptable. I would go back, if in the neighborhood, but with modest expectations. Wish I could have gotten into Balthazar.

Always a nice reliable choice, a favorite of mine for years ( pretty much since it opened, scary to think about being so old) and consistently pleasant dining for parties of any size. I have never had a bad meal here.

Food was surely good enough and mostly as expected. Server was on point, friendly and made good suggestions. Then came the wine (after I finished my negroni). The glass was decent but at the last 1/3 of it got an unusually large sip of sediment. I mentioned it to the server and pointed to the glass that clearly showed the remaining sediment that I didnt swallow. Her response was "that happens often with that wine". Really? Very bad answer on so many levels. I asked her to mention it to management and she said she would. On principal, either comp the drink, re-pour or at least have management come over and say something?!? Put a bad taste in my mouth. Literally. Bad form guys...

Had not been to Odeon in many years; used to enjoy it a lot, and enjoyed it this time also. But its tables (have they added more?) are so crowded, hard for servers to get through; hard for customers to get in and out, much less make one's way to the restroom. Even by NY standards, really crowded. Food is good although overpriced. Ambience is best part.
