Boozy Brunch was not what we expected, but fun!

We were staying in Chelsea and looking for a "boozy brunch" to enjoy on a weekend get away. Intermezzo was a fun experience, but definitely not what we were expecting. It's a good thing we called to make a reservation as the place was packed and our seating was delayed by 30 minutes. We'd passed... read more

We went on a living social deal on a Sunday. When we walked in the place was loud and crazy. The waiter came over and told us they were finishing up Sunday brunch if we wanted to wait until after five it would be quieter. We decided to sit any way. We started with delicious Sangria, I'm not really a... More

Great to sit on the street on 8ave. Their food prices are really reasonable, where you end up spending a lot of cash is on the booze. 1/3 food 2/3 booze. Still love to eat here lunch was always good i love early dinner there. Excellent and friendly service. It is clean and nice, a bit old looking and needs... More

I had the veal piccata, mashed potatoes, and broccoli rabe. Meal was excellent. Chocolate mousse finished off the meal. Service was good. Go on restaurant.com buy the certificate. Save yourself some bucks. i had the short ribs and it was excellent. The coconut sherbet was an excellent end to the meal.

We discovered Intermezzo simply by strolling down 8th Avenue whilst looking for a local restaurant. We managed to get seated by the sidewalk and were able to watch the world hurry by as we dined and drank well at reasonable prices - well by New York City standards anyway. The menu was decent and the service was delightful - the... More

We enjoyed a dinner at a table just outside of the restaurant's opened front windows, at one of 5 sidewalk tables. Wonderful service, delicious fare, inexpensive food and wine and a lemon cello on the house to wind up the meal. Wonderful! this little gem is a bit noisy inside, but our half-in-half-out spot was quiet (as quiet as any... More

Went here for dinner on a Saturday night. Waiter was great, attentive and made good recommendations. The price was very reasonable too, less than $250 for 7 entrees and 5 glasses of wine. Would definitely return.

I ordered pasta with a lamb ragout. The taste was dull...had very little flavor...AND, there were bones in the sauce. 4 of them!! I had gone to Intermezzo before... More

The food and menu here are simply not worth the price. For brunch, you're paying for the show, and not the food. Eat before and just get the $25 unlimited drink deal. Reservations HIGHLY recommended/required for a good spot.

I wanted to really like Intermezzo, as it's in my neighborhood, but I found the food to be mediocre. It actually made my guest a little sick. It's doubtful I'll return.

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
