“Best Lunch!”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Made reservations a month in advance for lunch. Arrived to a table in the back corner, service was excellent and staff was friendly. Started with the onion soup & lobster bisque. Highly recommend both. We ordered the meatball sliders, fries (big enough to split), and the bacon cheeseburger. Everything was so tasty! The place was empty when we arrived then quickly filled up! Definitely will go back on our next NYC trip!

“Honeymoon meal”
Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

Me and my wife pre booked a meal at the restaurant for the first night of our honeymoon in New York, we were treated exceptionally well. We had champagne on arrival, the staff gave us the best seat they had and the food was so good. We were really happy we booked here not just for the service but most importantly for the food. Really contributed to a great celebration and would recommended it to anyone

“Spectacular Discovery!”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

We had the pleasure of dining last night at the Little Owl, a great discovery during our visit to the City this past week. The Little Owl is situated on the corner of Bedford and Grove near Greenwich Village in a quiet, upscale neighborhood and is the definition of cozy, with seating for no more than 20-25 diners along with 4 spots at the bar. The host Jerod greeted us immediately upon entry and was charming, engaging, conversational and extraordinarily hospitable. Both the food and the service were outstanding. For starters, we had a very tasty pear salad along with the Owl's signature sliders. These alone were worth the visit. However, the Scottish salmon and filet were terrific as were the brussel sprouts. Without doubt we will be dining again at The Little Owl on our next visit to New York. Keep up the great work!!

“great little corner restaurant”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

Typical west village understated bistro style - great food in laid back atmosphere. We ate at the small bar because it was busy - portion sizes are european but really clean, simple flavors. 6-7 dishes for apps and entrees - great mixture. Highly recommend - service good but not over bearing - good for a quiet dinner.
