“pork out at the pig”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We had a very pleasant lunch with 'awesome' service. The waiter kept saying this (in joke). The quality of the food was high but the amount was not reflected in the price. This is the only real quibble we had was the size of the portion served, not huge. The wine though gorgeous was at 5 th avenue prices, equally good wine around the corner at local pub half the price. But this is the only negative we could think of. and we realise we were in 'The Village' so knew it wouldn't be walmart prices (notice the American reference)
So go if you want a nice lunchtime treat and good service with fine food get yourself along.

“great sheep ricotta gnudi but that's it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Whenever I am in NY I visit this place because I LOVE their "Sheep’s Milk Ricotta Gnudi with Brown Butter & Crispy Sage" This meal is just fabulous! My husband orders this as well:) although he who loves meat. He tried the burger but it was nothing special. My friend had "Spanish Mackerel with Sweet Potato" and that was quite delicious. The decor is interesting, pub style cool! The waiters are supposed to be cool as well but they are not! The service is not friendly or good, most of the time. We were even told that we have to order everything at once, i.e. we couldn't take extra orders later, in a case we want more!!??? Now, when I write this I even wonder myself why do I return, well, the gnudis are fantastic! The restrooms are so dark that it looks suspicious, like they want to hide uncleanness.

“Best burger ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

Went there early March. The place was packed and the mood was great. The service was a little bit slow, but when the burger finally came around...

It's the best burger I've had in my life. As simple as that.

“Hoped for more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Had been really excited about trying this place after reading great reviews. The place itself is great, love the decor and got a great welcome. We sat upstairs at the bar and ordered our drinks which at $10 per pint were way over priced. We didn't stay for food as it felt as if the rave reviews of the place had gone to our servers head and the warm welcome we had received downstairs was not extended upstairs. There are more than enough places in the area not to have stay in place in which you do not feel welcome.

“Intimate Setting and Fantastic Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We visited as a couple and were surprised at the quite, cozy setting. The bar is packed with locals but the restaurant was quiet. Great food across the board and worthy of multiple visits. Make a reservation!
