The food and service were excellent. The piano playing was perfect, not too loud so you have to yell to be heard. The prices are little high...but that's New York, and I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Had a wonderful, quiet memorable meal. Piano playing in the background, good wine selection and cocktails well made. Pricey even for New York but very intimate dinner in a lovely atmosphere.

We came to One If By Land for a 1 year anniversary dinner. From the start the service was fantastic. We were early for our reservation and still were seated within minutes. The waitress was very knowledgable and our drink/dinner orders were promptly taken. We opted for the 7 course tasting menu, and it was absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend... More

the food here is great! We had the fixed price 3-course dinner. Appetizers were forgettable, but the Tomahawk steak for 2....amazing! And the desserts. Oh yes, those were delicious! Unfortunately we were seated in a back corner where the air conditioning blew right on us. NYC had warmer than average heat the week we were there, but the frigid air... More

We eloped to NYC from Manchester, UK recently and booked a meal here on the evening of our wedding on 12th October 2016. The service was incredibly prompt, food of a high quality and all staff were well dressed and very professional. Well worth the money and the decor is superb.

We went to one if by land and two if by sea to celebrate my 30th birthday. We are Spanish and we went to NY for my birthday and we chose this restaurant because the atmosphere was romantic and the food was incredible. It was worth the money (though quite expensive because of the wine). We chose the 3 Plate... More

Well the reviews are great and it lives up to its expectations. Everything was perfect from the cocktails at the bar through the care of the maitre d' to our table and the food. It is romantic but it could also be good for a business dinner. It made our 10th wedding anniversary perfect - thank you!

A special setting to celebrate a special occasion or to just enjoy a great meal. I'm never disappointed when I visit this restaurant. The beef Wellington signature dish never disappoints. The service is top-notch and the food is exquisite in presentation and taste. Treat yourself to a wonderful culinary experience.

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
