Best Mussels around, great lunch menu on upper East Side.

We had a great lunch and very good service. I loved their mussels. The house wine was even excellent.

Attentive serving staff, great menu, interesting and surprising menu - would return. Wasn't at all a daunting locale for a single traveller either, which is sometimes frowned upon at restaurants.

Osso Buco is a highly recommendable place to dine, especially if one is in search of traditional Italian food. The service has always been excellent when I have dined there, the staff is friendly and extremely attentive. The food is fantastic and reasonably priced for the quality meal being provided. The environment is extremely comfortable and the setting is lovely.

Took a business contact to dinner here this week, and we both enjoyed the setting and the food. She had the salmon with side salad, and I had veal marsala. We both enjoyed our meal and will return.

We've been to the Osso Buco at 93rd and 3rd twice in the past two months, and enjoyed it very much both times. Service was friendly and accommodating both times, and the food was quite good. Fairly standard Italian fare, but done well. It's a good neighborhood restaurant. I've paid more for lesser food at other restaurants. We would not... More

the 93rd street version at least had food that was bland, oily and just generally sub par.

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.
