Hudson Clearwater is one of my all-time favorite restaurants with the coolest/coziest vibe and the freshest/most delicious food. The ricotta gnocchi, roasted bass, seared scallops, clam linguini and crispy polenta are my personal faves, but honestly I haven’t had one dish there that I haven’t...loved. I visited this week and the seating outside is so pretty and I felt super safe with the precautions they are taking for social distancing. The service was friendly, attentive and kind. If there happens to be a queue for a table because of how poppin this place is, I promise it is worth the wait, oh! And the cheesecake is worth the cheat day. I don’t usually even like cheesecake, but the way they make it is insanely good. Like melt in your mouth and dream about it a week later good. For real though, I can’t recommend this place enough. It’s good people and good food. What more could you want?More

My husband and I happened upon this restaurant on a walk from where we were staying near Times Square via the Highline on a walk down to the Financial District. We had left our hotel early so were looking for somewhere to have breakfast/brunch. This...was our first visit to NYC and a proper exploring trip. We arrived at the restaurant at about 9.30:- 10 a.m, and, from the outside it looked very busy and we were doubtful as to whether there would be any room for us, however we thought we would chance our luck and went in and asked and sure enough there was a table for two towards the back of the restaurant. It was very atmospheric in there with a large table of people in a festive mood wearing their Christmas jumpers, the restaurant was decorated beautifully for Christmas. The member of staff who seated us and brought our menus was very pleasant and gave us time to peruse the menu. I, being British, was looking for something familiar to eat and so decided on the two eggs (any style) with toast, and I chose bacon as a side. I asked for my eggs “over easy” as I’d heard of so may times on TV/films but wasn’t sure what it was. My husband opted for something more “daring”. The restaurant was busy, but very efficient, our hot beverages turned up very shortly after ordering and our food turned up about 20 - 25 minutes later. The food was delicious. I very much enjoyed my eggs over easy (and have since been cooking them this way since returning home) and my husband thoroughly enjoyed his food too. The only little niggle I had was that where I sat, there was quite a strong draught/draft coming through the window, so I had to sit with my coat on until my food arrived, although, to be fair, it was a very cold day, only just above freezing and had been snowing (on 11th December). However, we really liked this place and wouldn’t hesitate to visit again if we ever got the chance to go back to NYC. Also, after staying very close to Times Square, we didn’t find this place too noisy, it seemed like a quiet neighbourhood.More

This spot is one of the places I’ve been to the most in my 4+ years in the West Village. I first went for brunch with my mom and loved everything we ate. I don’t know what they do to their scrambled eggs but they...taste like heaven. The cocktails are also delicious! I went recently with my boyfriend and we shared the scallops which were to die for.More

Despite the wonderful food, I would give this an average rating. The noise. The crowd. We were seated right up against the bar and were constantly jostled by people coming in to drink and some waiting for a table. At one point, we just wanted...to get our check. The waitress was apologetic about our unhappiness but there was nothing she could do. The buratta salad with pistachios and beets was excellent as was the special of seared halibut. My husband enjoyed the duck breast entree very much. Our friend had an appetizer portion of the scallops for an entree and complained about the saltiness. We finished our dinner and were asked if we wanted dessert. We told the waitress that the last hour had been very difficult and we wanted to get our check and be finished. We don’t mind spending money on an excellent meal but the experience should be good too. It was not. Unacceptable experience really.More

We came here to enjoy the back yard on a mild autumn morning. It's got a few plants, away from traffic and sidewalk so was very nice. Not so much my breakfast burrito and coffee. Coffee was a French press consequently no refills and the...coffee does get cold. Burrito had no flavor punch; just mild flavors so it was a bit boring. It wasn't a bad experience but from my limited exposure the reason to return is the charm of both outside and inside the restaurant.More

As a frequent tracker it’s always my goal to find that ‘one of a kind’, smaller, local restaurant in the city I visit. This place ranks very high on that list. Small, cost, character and great food. Highly recommend it if you’re looking for a...place that’s more local than your typical chain restaurants.More

We found it dated. Table cloth restaurant prices but run down. Menu limited. Food average. We went for outside dining. Small and not very nice

Came here to dine outside, as pictures showed an especially pretty garden area. It was as pretty as we'd hoped. Food and service were all quite good; no complaints. A very good experience.

A gem of a find in West Village, this cozy little cafe has a fantastic menu, a full bar, espresso coffee and fresh squeezed juices. It felt like a neighborhood favorite as people meandered in, ate and lingered to visit. The menu had a number...of good salad selections that tempted me. I chose a wild rice bowl with hummus, marinated chick peas, lentils, avocado, marinated cauliflower and lettuce. I added a small piece of salmon. It was a perfect lunch with lots of neighborhood comings and goings to entertain us through the windows. The service was friendly and the food came quickly. Tip: The kitchen closes at 3:00 for lunch.More

Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the

this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You

Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
