Little owl was such a great find. When we got there, we were told that our table was given away coz we didn't confirm our reservations, but we were told not to worry, and were given a glass of wine and a snack on the house while we waited for the next available table. The food was simply amazing - unpretentious, delicious food. We had such a great meal that we would go back in a heartbeat.

Amazing food especially for the cost, one of my favourite meals from a week in New York and the manager have us the brilliant idea of having two meatballs each, great service, cool place, amazing atmosphere. Champagne cocktails made it even more special.

Pretty location and building. Staff friendly and helpful. No reservations taken for brunch so just walked in. My husbands burger and fries according to him was excellent. However, my two tacos were the most expensive item on the menu and though very tasty were very small. The orange juice was also served in a very small glass. When one goes to brunch one doesn't expect a huge meal but at least a satisfying breakfast. Having been to other brunch places in NY in my opinion this is perhaps a little trendy and over-hyped but it could simply be that I ordered the wrong thing.

No point in writing an essay
Wonderful food the scallop starter is top grade and the pork chop main was probably the nicest food I had whilst on holiday
Great service and advice
Nice touch is the small setting and bar as well as the raised seating which is up a ladder
Book it in advance

So glad we came here. Scallops and pork chop both fantastic. Make sure you book! This place is always busy. Just a bit gutted that the building has scaffolding around it- wanted better pics of friends building!
