Quite by chance we walked by The place and thought it looked quite charming. I had duck for dinner and the triple chocolate fill cake, which both were to die for! Best meal ever!

Cosy restaurant with a friendly atmosphere. The food was well cooked, beautifully presented and delicious. Puligny Motrachet at $79 was amazing. Service was excellent. Would recommend.

"The Place" is definitely the place. Pros: Unique take on Mediterranean (try the duck) Nice drink menu options Friendly service Cons: Windows were open on the day we went so it was a little hot Smaller restaurant so there isn't a lot of space between tables (but normal for Manhattan)

I ordered the risotto and the cod fish. My Hasband the ravioli shrimps and the pork tenderloin. All was Devine. Tasty and great friendly staff. Quite a romantic feeling to the place. $80 or so. Thanks to trip advisors for the recommendation.

This small, intimate restaurant is a delight. The menu changes often to take advantage of the freshest of ingredients. In the winter, there is a cozy fireplace in the small front bar as well as the main dining room. In the summer, the front is opened up for al fresco dinning. Food wonderfully tasty, nice, reasonable wine list and friendly,... More

We ate here last week for our pre wedding night meal. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect...the food and service were impeccable. We cannot fault this restaurant (we also ate here last year). We will definitely return for a 3rd visit if (hopefully) we visit NYC again!

Excellent new-American cooking. Especially the duck dishes. But the best thing about The Place is the quite-tolerable noise level. You can actually have a conversation, unlike most restaurants in the Village.

Had dinner at the Place with a few friends and I love it! I really like the atmosphere at the Place. It is a bit dark but very cosy. Perfect place for a dinner with friends and could be a romantic place for couples as well. The food was tasty and I really like the starters! I can't wait to... More

I have to start this review by saying The Place was wonderful. I chose The Place after reading many other reviews on this site. I was going to NYC to get engaged and I wanted the dinner to be perfect. The Place worked with me from the start. I requested a table by the fireside. I let them know I... More
