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.

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
