In two visits we can heartily endorse the Octopus starter, zesty Tunisian Fish stew (includes a whole sea bream/daurade/dorado/cipura), succulent quail and stunning, tender whole rabbit (for two). The Domaine Brusset Gigondas was outstanding at a decent price loint, as was the Catalan Cava (sorry I didn't get the name.) Prune would be a 5 perfect if there were a... More

We live a few blocks from Prune and love the brunch here. The lines are always long and the restaurant is tiny, so it's best to come about 20 minutes before they open. My husband always gets the soft scrambled eggs with bacon and sides of the chickpeas and tomatoes and I always get the fried oyster omelette with a... More

I've been meaning to eat here for the longest time. Finally, for my birthday we got reservations and it did not disappoint. The food was wonderful and the service very pleasant. It's not dressy but it is special. We loved the branzino, boiled beef and duck entrees. All the starters were great too.

After hearing about Prune, was excited to be going, but found the menu limiting. Nothing we ordered was succulent or plate-licking worthy. All fine food, but not exceptional. The service however was impeccable. The restaurant is small, crowded, and noisy, so if you don't like that feeling, you won't be happy.

We had early dinner, and allegedly the successful booking at the last minute was a bit of good luck on our part. Prune is a very small and charming restaurant, but somehow I get the feeling that the staff are a bit too self-assured for their own good. The friendliness is somewhat forced, and they were rushing us with our... More

I've been trying to go to Prune since moving to NY 8 years ago. I finally had a chance to go and I can wholeheartedly say it was worth the wait! It's such a cute space and the service was fantastic. The brunch dishes are hearty and delicious, and they have a very large Bloody Mary menu which always helps... More

Prune is by far a special experience that you want to reserve for you and someone you really love to spend time with, want to impress, or really care about. The space is very tight, I think it can only seat like 50 people at a time, and when you walk in you are walking in between two tables; you... More
