Delicious Filipino food and cocktails in the East Village - with notably warm and friendly service

Eager to discover Filipino cuisine, I found Maharlika in the East Village and thoroughly enjoyed my meal there. I was in a 'weary traveler' type of state when I arrived, but fortunately my friendly waiter recognized this immediately and helped guide me through the menu with thoughtful explanations... read more

I have never had Filipino food before and this was beyond wonderful. We went for brunch and I had the egg and Longganisa, delish and the kalamansi seltzer to drink, it was all delish! I would highly recommend this restaurnat.

Small restaurant, but very cozy, wait staff is very knowledgeable of the menu, and makes great recommendations.

With all the raving reviews on here, I thought I would give Maharlika a try. I was very disappointed with the food and service. I tried out a few things that the waitress recommended and one of them include a platter that has a number of appetizers. None of them were really that great. The only thing I liked at... More

Delicious. Definitely had to get some Filipino food during our trip and really glad we went here. Kinda pricey, but the food/service were both great. Would come here again!

We landed in this spot by accident. We were craving seafood and Upstate (place nearby) had an hour wait. So we asked a very accommodating staff if they served seafood and they gave as a few suggestions and got as sited right away. The pictures speak for themselves. And the tastes were strong and pleasant. Usually I find that seafood... More

Been craving for some pinoy cuisine and this place hit the spot! Ordered the sisig, oxtail kare kare and lumpia. The service was great and very personal, had no reservation but the receptionist made some arrangements for us eventhough they are so busy. This place is a bit pricey from your typical pinoy reataurants. Would love to come visit again...

This place makes Filipino food into the classy, timeless food that it has been destined for. For brunch, try the ube pancakes. For a snack, try the spam fries. Either way, enjoy the great service, the beautiful decor, and the wide variety of Filipino fusion.

This was my first Filipino meal and it was DELICIOUS! Very savory food, great drinks, fantastic service, and the place is so much bigger than you think it is. The decoration was a really nice touch as well. Definitely recommended, although it is a little far from the city center. Prices were also very fair!

Went on Mother's Day with my wife and our daughter and son-in-law. Everything was a hit, and this was after we had just disembarked from a cruise. My wife is from the Philippines and she is a tough critic of Filipino restaurants, but she and our daughter loved the mango waffles. My son-in-law had "Eggs Benigno" and I had an... More

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
