About a 45min wait but worth every minute. We had a baked blueberry pancake which was absolutely amazing, a fried oysters omelette and a shared smoked salmon and cream cheese platter. Just wonderful.

Tiny and cozy restaurant, perfect for brunch with a small group of friends. Excellent seafood. Good bloody mary and mimosas. Good price (though not cheap).

I've decided that NYC restaurants are generally overpriced and overrated in general. I would say prune was only mildly overpriced but not overrated. It's a tiny place but the staff is very friendly and helpful and the food was actually very good. I'd go back.

It's a very tiny and very good restaurant, for any occasion. It's a perfect place to try the new American cuisine: I'm use to the French taste and I never eaten a chicken or a rabbit cooked like that. It's amazing! The brunch is also to die for.

I had read Blood, Bones and Butter by Gabrielle Hamilton a while back so when the opportunity to have a meal came my way I have to say I was not sure what to expect. In all honesty I did not find her story all that compelling. Prune is not a huge space. I think I counted maybe 35 seats.... More

Tried dinner here, was early enough to get in without reservation. Food was great: novel ingredients and combinations, subtle tastes, but still hearty! Nice

Was taken there by a friend who lives in New York, would never have found it otherwise. Two sittings for brunch, be there on time with your entire party or you won't be seated.

Must try this brunch. Period. The bloody mary's are unreal and the ricotta starter. Yum! The staff are phenomenal and atmosphere perfect for a Sunday brunch.

I love Prune for dinner and even more now for brunch. Simple delicious options in a tiny tiled and mirrored bistro, very french feeling if I'm allowed to say that having never been in France. Great service (though note NY does not serve alcohol before noon on sundays) and great people watching. Be prepared for a wait on the sidewalk... More
