"A friend of mine had recommended this restaurant and the advice was excellent. The place is very nice, the staff friendly, scrupulous and kind. The quality of food is great. A little expensive, but I recommend it."

"Attentive wait staff, food served promptly, and all food that was ordered was deliciously prepared. Depenwon your table/booth, seating can be a little tight. Otherwise, a very good dining experience."

"Frisée salad was as expected. Frites were soggy and bottom of the barrel. Moules were uninspired. Lamb shank was tasty. Bar staff (7pm) was slow, un-engaging and unfocused. I have dined at the Odeon for many years and this experience was sub-standard. Hopefully this was only an off night."
"Brunch was just okay, nothing special. The restaurant itself just seemed a bit shabbier than when I had dinner there a few years ago. Tablecloth was stained, food was overpriced and a bit dated, mimosas were tasty but way too expensive. Paid $50 for coffee, 1 mimosa & a chicken salad sandwich with a handful of watercress on the side. Eh."
"We really had a great time eating here. The server was very nice and forgot nothing, was attentive but not overbearing. Very much enjoyed the food as well, over indulged but well worth doing so. Look forward to coming back."

"Still a hot spot after all these years--and a lifesaver. A friend was here for her birthday, we'd schedule a dinner for 7 people at Kutscher's, and the blizzard arrived. We got a call from Kutschers in the morning saying they were shutting down, and I started panicking. Luckily, The Odeon had an opening at 8:30, and when we called and asked if we could come earlier, they slipped us in. The place was packed, despite the adverse conditions, and the food was delicious, the service, wonderful, and ambiance--still cool, still welcoming!"

"What a treat to find that after all these years, the Odeon is still a quintessential New York dining experience. A bit pricey, yes, but delicious. Yummy Brussels sprouts, tasty hangar steak, and an ice cream sundae to die for. Come back to an old favorite."
"Odeon is great as usually - food is really outstanding, drinks are decent, service never goes below their very good level.
A couple of practical suggestions. 0. Get reservation (I always do) - the place is popular 1. You will never go wrong with their Benedict (though might consider additional side as it is a bit smaller than you want). 2. Do not leave vodka selection for your Bloody Mary to the bartender and make the choice as they give you the option - otherwise you will get house vodka which is average."

"If you're in Tribeca, The Odeon is a landmark worth visiting. And the weekday lunches are a power lunch scene. The food isn't what it once was...the Tuna burger was a ground burger, not a filet as it used to be, but the ingredients tops. It's the downtown version of Union Square's Coffee Shop."

I would get he fish of the day special regularly. I'm not very impressed with the fish but always by the sides. This last time the grouper was so-so, bland in fact but the creamed spinach and the mashed (chunky) potatoes were just divine. I think I'd just get these sides for now and just skip the fish since they were simply outstanding."

"Service was super friendly from the hosts to the waiter. Never felt rushed. Food was very good - the dessert brioche pudding and homemade sorbet outstanding. An adult restaurant that is kid friendly."

"We celebrated our nuptials at The Odeon. The service was AMAZING. We had a party of 10 and we made reservations a day in advance. They had no trouble getting us in. We had actually made our reservation for 5pm but wanted to come in early at the last minute (at 4pm). We called ahead and they invited us to come over and they would be ready. We arrived and the table was already set for us. We enjoyed champagne (courtesy of the management) and wine/cocktails until the dinner menu came out a little after 5pm. The staff was AMAZING (can't say that enough) and the food was prepared to perfection. We saw two celebrities enjoy a meal (us being out of towners made that pretty cool). Can't go wrong at this amazing spot."
