What Insiders Are Saying
Tuome in the East Village is doing something totally different with familiar Asian menu items.
This was our first time at Tuome, and we could not have been happier. The food was genuinely innovative and perfectly prepared. They have a small, but carefully selected menu that works really well, as well as a nice and reasonably priced wine list. Best of all, the service was warm, unhurried (a wonderful and rare thing in NYC!) and personal without being overbearing. We didn’t even realize they have a Michelin star until we got there, but it makes complete sense that they do, and it’s well deserved. I’m sure this will be the first of many visits for us!
Amazing! Snow crab noodles are great!
We had to stand and wait even for 5 minutes after our reservation time. Was too crowded and noisy. Would not recommend for an intimate date night. Seems good for drinking and catching up with buddies and being freely loud. Food was great.
I had not been back for two years, so many other places to try. The others were all a waste of time, I could eat at Tuome every night. Great food, subtle, inventive and just plain delectable. Friendly warm service too.
In a relaxed, cosy atmosphere, the food was wonderful at this neighbourhood feeling restaurant. Coming from Europe we found the service a little too pushy and quick, in that American way of service. Would definitely come back for the food, but not a celebratory or special occasion meal.
Cute place, very friendly service. All food good, but beet salad superb as were the lentils that came with the scallops.
Their signature dish the "pig out" was really awesome, the meat was tender and lean, even being pork belly. The top was amazingly crispy and the sauces that they brought enhanced the favor tremendously .
Never not good. Love Tuome. Missing out if you have been #factz
Our hostess and waiter were personable, knowledgeable, attentive, efficient, and neat. It made for a great dining experience, and the food definitely made it even better! We ordered about half of the menu (because why not), and every single dish had a unique taste. Every dish was well-presented both aesthetics-wise and flavor-wise. All of the flavors blended excellently yet also stood out on their own. I would come back to try the rest of the menu.
This was my second time at Tuome and both times have been great. All the dishes are unique and delicious. I really couldn’t single anything out and have had over half the menu at this point as my first time was a large group for a birthday that did family style. I’m personally a fan of chicken liver and my fiancé is not and she liked theirs a lot so it’s def exceptional. The Wagyu beef medallions are awesome and the grilled octopus is some of the best I’ve ever had. Perfect crisp outside and juicy inside. The pork for 2 is so good. The deviled eggs were different recipes each time I went and both were great. The quail was tasty as well. It’s all good. A little pricey but duh... it’s a Michelin Star restaurant. I’ve been to similarly priced restaurants and left feeling cheated. Never at Tuome. It’s pricey because it’s great quality food, prepared in interesting ways, and with great service.
Tuome was a delightful experience for my partner and me on our eighth anniversary. The deviled eggs and octopus were some of the best dishes I've had in my life.
Our group of 5 had a wonderful meal, sharing different plates family style. It was fun to try different dishes and flavors. We especially enjoyed the Pig Out (crispy skin roasted pork for 2), chicken liver appetizer and the fried deviled eggs. Casual atmosphere, great food- I would definitely go back and recommend to friends.
Food is good but the restaurant is far too noisy, 92 db is not the noise level where one enjoys dining. And we could not read the menu without a torch because it was so dark.
FOOD IS ON PAR, HOWEVER THE SERVICE IS QUITE DISORGANIZED. LIMITATION OF DRINKS THAT YOU CAN ORDER.
Great ambiance and great food.
Loved the innovative, delicious and beautifully presented food. The tartare, crab and pasta dish, salmon all were so fresh and tasty!
Great service and ambience!! New favorite spot in Alphabet city!
Totally delicious meal. Can’t wait to return.
Tuome was a fantastic experience. The food was really delicious, the service perfect and we also loved the cool atmosphere. I’ll definitely come back and highly recommend.
Fantastic meal at tuome! I would really recommend it
Cozy and intimate setting. I personally thought the Pig Out was just alright, so it was kind of disappointing that I couldn’t order another entree since the dish was already for two. Amazing sweet potato side, fried mantou dessert and deviled eggs appetizer. Overall a lovely experience.
Tuome is a gem! They deserve a second Michelin Star.
Wonderful experience. Great food, charming atmosphere, nice service.
Wonderful neighborhood secret! Highly recommend the Snow Crab and Salmon! The Deviled Egg appetizer made for a perfect start!
Unique flavor combinations, refined dishes, quiet space. Good for smaller groups.
The food is outstanding here. Limited menu, but what is offered is divine. Let the server guide your way. Cute Design and tightly packed, but great date night place.
Booked because of their Michelin star. Food was tasty but every dish was extremely heavy and overly sauced. Even the Himachi had fried items.
Tuome is one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a while. Lovely atmosphere, excellent cocktails and beer, friendly staff and the food was interesting and excellent.
This restaurant is outstanding in all facets. The deviled eggs were outrageously tasty... very creatively presented. The chicken liver mousse was terrific. The scallops were perfectly prepared. I recommend the sticky rice and broccoli for sides.
Chicken liver and pig out were the highlights. Service was attentive. Small out of way place.
Excellent food in a very cute space - dark and cosy. Great service- liked the explanation of each dish. High quality food without pretension.
Ok, I've always had a great meal here,went to 11 Madison last night (it was very good) but the squab special here beat the duck(from 11 madison) by far. You out did yourselves!!
Amazing food that's not badly priced for a Michelin star restaurant!
very good good and cocktails
everything is very unique and interesting
Tuome is an East Village standout and a NYC gem. We try to eat at Tuome at least once a month but should probably be going once a week.
I gave a 3 overall for a few reasons. First the chair my husband sat on was nearly broken, no one to talk to about it so we switched it ourselves, the tables were really cramped and I was bumped constantly by the waiter and other guests. But what was really disappointing was our intrusive waiter who interrupted us constantly by telling/asking us everything he was going to do. But what really got me was telling us the desserts while clearing our plates, we tell him we are going to take some time to finish our wine, not sure if we wanted more wine or not, only to have him return a few minutes later to ask about dessert, (which was excellent btw) when we were deep in conversation. We did have the dessert but once finished, not cleared, the bill was slapped down by not him but someone else. This didn't feel good. We did have a good evening and I will recommend you but I wish our waiter had been more intuitive with us.
Overall we enjoyed the experience. I felt the pricing was a bit high, but would still recommend.
Still Amazing since the first time I came here 3 years ago. The octapus is just amazing.
I go to this place all the time; even in NYC where there are so many choices, it continues to be one of my all time favorites.
