Loved the ambiance and tone of Prune and the staff are really nice: very cool but genuine. The appetizers were pretty unexciting, although what we had was good. Nothing would have me coming back for more. The main courses were delicious but very heavy on the meat/fish protein: I would have welcomed less meat and a vegetable on my plate,... More

Nice place for a Sunday brunch. We had the huevos rancheros and monte cristo. Yum. Service was great. Small Lillie place that has a wait. We arrived at 9:40am and a line was formed. We were the 6th couple in line and were seated. In 5 minutes of sitting down there were people in line with a 45 minute wait.... More

The food was unusual and innovative and simply delicious! The appetizers were amazing, the main courses we ate were duck breast, pigeon (yes, that's right!) and the lamb shanks. All were equally wonderful. The desserts were fantastic as well.

I've walked by Prune for years and wondered about it. A friend visiting from out of town requested that we go there, so we went one Tuesday night. I'm going to be concise: - Food was not very good, both in conception and execution. The chicken I had was really bland. Nothing there. Appetizers were better. Dessert was terrible. -... More

We read and enjoyed "Blood, Bones, and Butter" by Chef Gabrielle Hamilton, then visited her wonderful restaurant Prune in NYC. Her staff did everything right - from providing a free glass of champagne because the prior customers did not timely vacate the table to suggesting a very good bottle of wine to serving excellent food. This is a small cozy... More

We went to this restaurant because of the chef reputation. I wood very surprised that this chef is still cooking this vulgar food, too spicy, salty, no finesse. The maitre D was very nice, however our waitress was arrogant, can't even describe the dishes properly. Very disapointing. Very expensive even for NY standards.

Very good food in a lovely small place with attentive, friendly service but expensive for what it is. Maybe it's just New York pricing at play but a meal with a starter, entree, one side, dessert, one glass of wine and tip was $100. Okay, as I list all of that chow, maybe that's a deal in NYC! The shrimp... More

There are too many gorgeous restaurants in NY to go here .. to be asked to leave your table while you are enjoying your post dinner glass of wine (after only being there for an hour!). Not how I would treat good, local customers.

Tried this restaurant for dinner, because its owner/chef is so well known. Enjoyed her persona projected by the media and in her memoir and a cookbook. Realized that she nowadays may not be necessarily cooking there anymore, but still expected some standards by whoever was in the kitchen. We ordered a small bowl of Stracciatella soup for $10, a side... More

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.
