Italian | Gramercy / Flatiron, Manhattan

This was a spur of the moment find on Open Table when my and I were in the city for a night and wanted some "neighborhood-y" Italian. The experience was pretty amazing. The space is really cool (formerly a small live music venue according to the friendly host who greeted us) and the owner and chef play insanely good music not usually found in an Italian joint in NYC. All jam band soundtrack that was quite welcome over the more traditional Sinatra soundtrack. Lasha was our server and we had fantastic housemade pastas and vegetables that were insanely tasty. Great wine list and bar drinks. The kicker were the deserts...House made Gelati and Chocolates...wow! Give this place a try post theatre or for a date night....you will like it.. More

Third visit to Junoon. Food was excellent — the pork belly main was unique for Indian food and was delicious. Service was good. What was missing was the simultaneous presentation of plates that really wowed me on my first visit several years ago. It’s a small touch that with minimal effort creates and impressive experience.

American | Gramercy / Flatiron, Manhattan

There is a lot of space. I was really surprised given its midtown location. We made a reservation as we were arriving around 7, but I don't know if that was necessary. A table had been reserved for us. We had space and weren't really sitting on top of anyone. It was a little loud; I had trouble hearing my friend diagonal from me. Beer was delicious. I'm glad we were there during Happy Hour as beer prices are a little expensive. My friends had the Steak Frites and Fish and Chips, which they thought were fine. My friend with the Fish and Chips was expecting a traditional slab of fish, but the fish is served fried in smaller pieces. I had the house-made veggie burger and thought it was sensational! One of the best I've had since I've been a vegetarian. Our server was great; made sure we always had drinks and water but also left us to chat and catch up. It was a wonderful experience. I really loved the space- the cute booths and wood floors. I think it's a great place to meet when people are coming from different boroughs. We will be back. More

Service was amazing- everyone was so kind and hospitable. Food was delicious! They have a seasonal menu and everything we ordered was impeccable. Their bread is served with a side of sundries tomato olive oil and it was so delicious- you can also buy a jar it’s that good! Seating was also comfortable. Sometimes in manhattan restaurants are tight and stuffy but Bocca was casual and comforting. Definitely coming back here- whether a birthday or family dinner to girls night out, Bocca was 10/10. Thank you! More

"I loved the intimate and comfortable feel. We had the margarita pizza, half bottle Saracco, Moscato d’Asti (moscato) and a bottle of Pinot Noir suggested by the waiter - who was very busy but still very pleasant. I will definitely return and look forward to trying more dishes and wine. The smaller tables were a little close but the music was at a pleasant level that you could still have a private conversation. First time there and won't be my last. More

There is no better place in NYC to celebrate a special occasion and be pampered and taste the most exquisitely prepared meal. Be prepared to sit for more than 2 hours and be royally served by almost all of the staff. The kitchen is like a laboratory where each course is served to perfection. I’ve been loving Bouley since Duane Street and yesterday was the best meal ever in the 21st Street location. The chefs nailed every course. More

We ate the saffron/soppresata arancini, the tigelle with charred eggplant dip, burrata, octopus, lamb ravioli and the ribeye for 2. Overall everything was perfect and delicious with the exception of the octopus. The octopus itself was borderline inedible. If we didnt order it altogether I probably would have given this place 5 stars. Will definitely be back minus the octopus of course. More

I had my birthday dinner here with a large party. Overall, I had a nice experience. I loved the fun and lively atmosphere, the food was delicious (everyone seemed to love what they ordered). For such a big party, the service was good but not outstanding. We did a lot of waiting around, for example, at the end of the meal for the bill to be picked up. However, I really appreciated the free tequila shots for the table because it was my birthday! Also they sang happy birthday to me with a delicious cake which was nice. The margarita on the rock pitchers, although strong, seemed to be on the high end price wise. Otherwise, everything else was great and we had a fun and memorable time. Thank you!! More

Discover Gramercy

A quiet neighborhood with brownstones and elegant hotels, Gramercy surrounds a private park akin to New York City’s secret garden. Upscale restaurants dot the blocks, many of which serve classic farm-to-table fare as well as French and new American food. A buzzworthy bar scene attracts the after-work crowd.
