It was my sister’s birthday and we came all the way from Brooklyn to celebrate; unfortunately the drive took longer than we expected, therefore we were late for the first show. I asked the host if we could reserve for the second show and she made it happen. She escorted us to the lounge to wait then returned for us...she went above and beyond. Our server was just as hospitable; our food was served in a timely manner ( it was delicious!). She also acknowledged my sister’s birthday during desert. Finally, the reason for our visit—the music! It was fantastic...one hour was not enough. We will be back! More

Our favorite restaurant in the neighborhood. Delicious French bistro menu, very nice selection of wines, and a great staff (several of them Francophone Africans -- a terrific Paris-Dakar-New York fusion you could only find in Harlem). The restaurant also has a great energy and ambience. We've taken many friends there, and they've always been delighted. More

Italian | Harlem, Manhattan

Bettolona is a neighborhood Italian restaurant that provides comfort, good homey food, decent wine lovely coffees and a few terrific desserts. It’s just down the hill for me, about 1block from the 125th street #1 stop and the 4 and104 buses. The is always a fire in the pizza oven which is soothing no matter the season. For those that like it there is a nice bar.!The prices are reasonable for lunch, dinner and brunch. Go and enjoy. More

American | Harlem, Manhattan

My boyfriend and I made a reservation for Valentines Day at 7:45PM. When we got there at 7:40PM, it seemed that our table was already given away. However, the Matradee apologized, found us a table at the bar, personally got our dinner table ready, made sure we were comfortable and gave us a drink on the house. The food was excellent, the staff was friendly and you could tell everyone was working really hard to make sure the customers had a great night. I will definitely be recommending Maxwell's to all my friends, and I will be back again soon. My new favorite place! More

Comfort Food | Harlem, Manhattan

We were in town visiting from Lincoln, NE. This was our first visit to Chocolat Restaurant &Bar. It was during Sunday Brunch and the atmosphere was lively. The food was delicious. We had a reservation and were 10 minutes late and were advised we’d have to wait. The wait wasn’t long and the food was well worth the wait. Our server was excellent however at the end our leftovers were to be brought back to table but were discarded in error. This would definitely not stop me from returning. I would advise anyone who has the opportunity please dine here. The shrimp and grits, red velvet pancakes and the fried chicken are unbelievable. More

Seafood | Harlem, Manhattan

Diana was a terrific and attentive server last night. My lobster bisque, while very tasty, was overly salted.... kitchen needs to cut way back on the salt, which can easily be added at the table if the diner wants that amount of salt. The nation Red Lobster should heed this advice and trend. Biscuits were delicious, if a bit heavy on the garlic.... a little less would be just as effective. Nice roomy tables and quiet atmosphere. A cpl of spotlights were flickering like strobes and should have been changed before the dinner service as it's quite disruptive, and the bathroom stalls in the ladies room could use attention. Would dine there again. 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.
