Awesome Ambiance and Fries

The lighting has a very inviting effect... almost like you've stepped back in time and are eating in the 20's. The food is good... however, all the raving about the Black Label Burger proved not to be so true. Granted, the burger is good; however, I've had better in NYC and for a lot less money... read more

Steak frites delicious - definitely felt as thought we were transported to "old New York" next time I'll have to try the black angus burger.

We went to Minetta without reservations after a show. Arrived at about 11:30 PM. Kitchen is open till 1 I think. Bouncer seated outside the door could have been off putting but not an issue as he opened the door and welcomed us in with nothing more than a nod on our part. Place was very busy but no wait...

Definitely not one you should judge by its cover. As you creep through the rough corner facade, you slowly proceed through some-what of a time-warp and emerge into one of the coolest spaces in the city. Service is fantastic and the food was even better. I will definitely be coming back for another Black Label Burger - ridiculous.

We made a reservation at Minetta Tavern during our week-long NYC trip for our elopement. I don't even remember what I mentioned in my OpenTable reservation request, but the host mentioned how sweet and funny it was and made a point of giving us a warm welcome. Next we were greeted at our corner booth with champagne - what a... More

Went here to celebrate by birthday with family specifically for the bone marrow. I seek out places that serve it and order it every chance I get. So what if my arteries are feeling a bit clogged these days! Made a reservation several weeks ahead and guaranteed with a credit card! They said they would charge the card a no-show... More

The host was very nice about finding us a table when we walked in without a reservation. We waited about 15 minutes and got a booth. I love the interior of the MInetta Tavern, from the tile floor to the bar to the portraits on the walls. Three of us had burgers and one had the steak with fries. All... More

I had been looking for recommended restaurants in the Greenwich Village area, and came across Minetta Tavern as a good choice. Situated on MacDougal street, the interior/décor takes you back in history, a charming setting. Service was brilliant, friendly and attentative. The food was really nice, we both had monkfish as main course, really excellent. Prices maybe a little on... More

We visited this bar last night as I wanted a big New York burger whilst on our long weekend trip. The bar/ restaurant is in a busy area with lots of groups hung around outside. When we entered it was packed, people at the bar were 2 deep and the rest of the bar is crammed full of tables. The... More

We ate dinner here March 2015. While it seems to have a stereotypical NYC feel to it (wood paneled decor, black and white photos of restauranteur with local boxers, etc), the food and menu was acceptable without being outstanding. When comparing price and flavour/menu and fitout with places like The Dutch nearby, The Dutch is far superior.

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
