Had a lunch meeting at The Little Owl, the place is very small. The seating worked for my party of two specifically because there wasn't anyone sitting to our left or right which helped a lot. I would have felt a little claustrophobic if the...More

Our breakfast in this cozy space was very good. Service was friendly and attentive. The overall pace was honestly too fast for a Saturday morning experience.

Our good friend Ed Gunning suggested this as one of his favorites. I didn't know it was in the Friends' building and it was funny to watch people outside jumping up to take pictures like the cast in that show. It was easy to get...More

We were lucky as we called in on the off chance after walking through the neighbourhood- we sat at the bar, which didn’t spoil it at all. Lovely atmosphere - you could “feel” the happiness!! Small inside, so tables are very close together. Portions are...More

Seating is tight which makes it fun. Meatballs are always on the menu and we love them! Service is perfect, this time it was Meredith. The benignets are fabulous.

Nice, cozy atmosphere. Wouldn't recommend children as placed is small and tight, Serving portions small but helps with a glass of wine to not care. Just expected more in the quality of the preparations. Service was very good though. Worth to try at least once....More

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

If you have a reservation, I assume you could have appetizers and a drink, then leave promptly so someone else could be accommodated. There are good appetizers and it is not necessary to eat a ton of food. There seems to be... More
