We where in New York on our honeymoon and booked this restaurant several weeks in advance as we know how popular it is. The correspondence with the restaurant was great and exactly the way it should be; friendly and helpful. The food was amazing and for a cold Wednesday evening the atmosphere was inviting. Little Owl is a perfect location... More

We came for an early dinner at 6pm; the restaurant was full. Our table was ready after a few minutes wait. We had 2 starters, after hearing the recommendations from our waiter, my husband ordered the Sardine Filets with Salsa Verde which he enjoyed very much and I ordered the Soft Shell Crab Salad. It was my first Soft Shell... More

I've been to this little restaurant last May, on my last night in the Big Apple, which, thanks to it as well, became unforgettable. It is very centrally located, in the heart of West Village, at the corner and ground floor of the building used for the exteriors of renowned TV serie Friends. The restaurant is small and cosy, it...

This place definitely has special atmosphere. I was not amazed by the food. It was good but not inspiring. They get 4 starts for the friendly service.

Great food, wonderful service! Risotto was out of this world, sliders were savory, halibut was good and pork chop was amazing! Service top notch. Great wine and food suggestions. We had a wonderful meal. Can't wait to go back!!

Visited for lunch and it is easy to understand why this is such a popular place. The restaurant is located in a great neighborhood and is very cozy. If the restaurant sits 30, that is a lot, but that adds to the charm. My suggestion is book way in advance to reserve a table; you will not be disappointed. We... More

Stopped in here about 10pm on a Thursday evening following a show. Had no booking but the hostess was able to accommodate us - initially started sitting on this little perch overlooking the other diners, sipping on a couple of great wines, odd but cool. Then a couple of spots opened up at the bar, which was more than comfortable,... More

Cozy and nice small restaurant (crowded) on a beautiful street, friendly staff and good lunch! Popular and most local New Yorkers. Very tasty and good lunch but relatively small portions. However, it is worth taking two servings!

Great food, atmosphere, and service. It feels like you are invited to dine in someone's home. We like to try different things when we travel and a friend recommended that we try this out. So glad we did. A definite highlight of our trip.
