Took mom there for Mother’s Day off of a recommendation from a friend. The food and service were both excellent. The great thing about RDV’s bottomless deal is that it’s 90 minutes from when you get there.. not just until brunch ends. So as long as you arrive before brunch ends.. you can enjoy your bottomless for 90 minutes. I definitely recommend giving them a try. More

We had a fantastic dinner at Maison Harlem! We wanted a special dinner because our daughter had just graduated from Columbia university. The food is excellent - we had mussels, red snapper, steak and pasta with shrimp. All were so good. The music was a nice surprise - excellent jazz vocalist. One of the best finds in a long time. And the service was just right, attentive but not hovering. We will go back often. More

Second time we headed to Harlem for a dining experience and it was well worth the trip. There is a very nice wine selection and the food was delicious and the portions generous. The onion soup was great on a cool wet night, the salads very fresh. It was a little noisy, but we got used to it. We will definitely go back. More

American | Harlem, Manhattan

The chicken wings were good. I also ordered drinks (the wine was good, the whisky sour was horrible), the lobster Mac and cheese was absolutely disgusting (it was runny, didn’t have real cheese. It was the runny cheese you use when you make quick Mac at home out of the box) and the salmon was dry and burnt. I was so very disappointed with the food. The place was completely empty on a late Monday night so my large party of 8 felt like we had the whole place to ourselves to fully enjoy ourselves and we appreciated to find a place in Harlem that stayed open until 2 am on a week night but the food was horrible. I wouldn’t want to dine there again unless they get a new chef. More

Discover Harlem

Renowned for its vibrant culture across music and literature, Harlem’s burgeoning restaurant scene has made it one of the most exciting neighborhoods in the five boroughs. Soul food is always on the menu, but now it has a modern twist—part gourmet, part classic comfort. And it’s not all chicken and waffles uptown. Ramen shops beckon with their slurpy noodles, and down-home seafood shacks sling salt water treasures. To spice it up, you can also explore NYC’s only Somali restaurant for savory pastries and other adventurous eats. Amidst the brownstones and history of Harlem, new flavors await.
