We were delighted by the food, the service and the fun we had. William - the owner, and our "budding actress" server were just delightful. We were a party of four and had some very good food, eating three courses which we really did not need! Recommended are the octopus salad appetizer and the pork shoulder main. The pork was really tender and just fell apart. We shared four deserts passing them around for everyone to try and they were really nice.

The wine list is good - try the NZ Pinot - and food prices are well within the moderate range for NYC.

It does get a little noisy, but that's just people having a great time - and the place was full.

Tremont is a great little restaurant in the West Village. The food is good, the service, also pretty good. It's one of those restaurants that's pretty trendy so you can find yourself waiting a while to be seated. The problem is the acoustics are awful in this restaurant. It's very difficult to hear anyone, lots of noise. That's my only complaint. I would not recommend this restaurant if you wanted to have a quiet dinner with someone or if you had a group and were hoping to be able to hear each other at various ends of the table, that's likely not going to happen here. However, if you want good food and don't mind speaking loudly Tremont is a great place for dinner.

Far and above one of the best dinners I've ever had. Service was wonderful, atmosphere was great and once again the food was out of this world. We can't wait to go back!!!

We went Tremont on New Year's Eve whilst visiting from the UK. Although the menu was limited the food was great and the service was excellent (very attentitive and polite). The restaurant itself it stylish, orderly and well lit. Give the high quality food and service, the pricing was very reasonable if not plainly inexpensive.

Very disappointed by the customer service at this resteraunt....and we didn't event get the opportunity to eat there! After a busy day of shopping and sightseeing we wanted a late dinner on Sunday evening. Knowing that people typically eat a bit earlier in USA we called in advance (at around 9.10pm) to check if they were still serving dinner and if we coud have a tabe at 9.30pm. We were advised that they had tables but that the kitchen would be closing at 10pm but that we could eat if we arrived prior to that.

We rushed down to the resteraunt, arriving around 9.25pm to be greater by the woman my husband had spoken to. We asked for a table for dinner only to be directed to sit at the bar. When we requested on of the tables away from the bar we were then advised that she "thought" that the kitchen was closing. We asked her to confirm this, and reminded her that we had been told differently on the phone. She returned to confirm that the kitchen was closing at 9.30pm because it is so quiet. Very poor service!

But every cloud has a silver lining! On leaving thus resteraunt we walked down the road and asked some New Yorkers for an alternative recommendation. We ended up in a local Italian restaurant which was fantastic (interestingly it was heaving, perhaps there was a reason why Tremont was so quiet). When I get the details of the Italian I will post a review of it too.
