We came back to this restaurant after a 10 year absence and were happy to see it hadn't changed much. Still the 'old style'! We had booked well in advance and were a little put off that we had to re-confirm our booking both by email and also by telephone with the 'threat' that they will charge us if we... More

We visited during Restaurant Week for lunch. The room is big and airy with views to a back garden. Although every seat was filled, the noise level was minimal. Our server was great---advising on our wines by the glass and even letting my partner have a taste to try. Our meal started with a quinoa, kale, apple, almond and currant... More

One of my colleagues recommended Gotham as his favorite restaurant in the world. So, we had to try it. It was good, but not close to the best... Personally, I think that a one hundred word minimum for tripadvisor reviews is silly...

One of the "had to go" spots in NYC, I was told. Neither of us was disappointed. The food was excellent, from soup to nuts. Service, while good, was not to the level I would have expected from such a great spot. Great wine selection! While the breads are parsed out one by one as another reviewer indicated, I appreciated... More

I've sat at the bar here often and loved the ambiance. Was very disappointed recently when discovering my credit card was charged after having to cancel a Valentine's Day reservation. I understand why a restaurant in New York City would have to charge something for a holiday cancellation but $350 for two people??? Am I to understand that a famous... More

I was here with a few friends for lunch during restaurant week. Although restaurant week features a special price, the offerings were all items from the regular menu, so it was a good way to sample their food. All of us thought the meal was outstanding, and the service was very attentive even though the restaurant was quite crowded. I... More

My wife and I took our 12-year-old grandson to dinner at this outstanding NYC restaurant.The food: risotto, scallops, halibut, lamb, all perfectly executed and inspired. Service was attentive, but not as polished as I expected. Meal started with sparkling water but changed to tap water. Servers were also very slow to clear plates and one server forgot my grandson's soda... More

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.
