Popped in at the 'new' Tribeca (albeit already a few months since the facelift) last week on A saturday afternoon for a meal before the movies. Very limited menu ito variety. We ended up ordering two different burgers. MacDonalds looks like fine dining compared to what was dished up and to make it completely inedible was the ton os salt on the food.

When we wanted to pay by credit card I was informed that their credit card facility was off-line and was directed to the nearest ATM to draw cash to pay! Avoid at all cost

Tribeca is a very good restaurant with an excellent menu to suit all tastes. Situated in the Brooklyn and Lynnwood Bridge area. Well worth a visit.

The service was poor, the food was average and in total a bad experience.
Espresso coffee is meant to be full of flavour and aroma not bitter and sour.
If a customer complains then the waiters have an attitude claiming that the customer does not know what he is talking about.
From a true Italian I would suggest that these amateurs go to Italy and learn how to make espresso

Dear Tribeca - One can only reinvent oneself three times before the GAG becomes a little bit stale...

The meal I ordered was fit for hungry hogs, sent it back asking for the chef to taste it, ordered a plate of chips, unfortunately even those were undercooked.

I'm afraid you're missing the plot, but a well designed shop is seemingly all you are interested in. I would much MUCH rather have a meal across the way at Tasha's

Our first visit to Tribeca. We went there for Sunday morning breakfast. The place was quite busy, but then again, Brooklyn Square on a Sunday morning is always busy. The service was quite good and the waiter informed us upfront that they are quite busy and the food would take a while longer. I had the Rodeo Queen breakfast - French toast with bacon, blue berries and mascarpone cheese - very good. My husband had the Salmon breakfast which was also very good. Prices are not cheap but fairly reasonable if one looks at the size of the portions. Would visit again.
