de Santos - Manhattan

De Santos is housed in a rustic but chic townhouse in the West Village where you can enjoy Traditional American, International and Mediterranean influenced cuisine from culinary genius Executive Chef Angel Vela. The dark wood and exposed brick dining areas are sexy and cozy. If you're lucky enough to get seated in the downstairs hidden jewel, the Janis, another ambiance will hit your senses as you dine with friends and family, breathing the same air as legends like Janis Joplin and Bob Dylan. This secluded speakeasy rock n' roll room is also used for VIP's and larger private parties. The wide marble topped bar is a great place for a cocktail but comfy enough to stay and indulge in a full meal. French doors open to a large outdoor patio with exposed brick archway and awning where, when dining by candlelight you'll feel transported to the Mediterranean. Wednesday through Saturday late hours there's mixed music and surprises. Only at De Santos. Welcome.

"We sat at the bar to have a drink or 2 before dinner. It was 630 and we were the only patrons. We wanted another glass of wine but were continually ignored by the bartender. He wouldn't even look up so we could catch our eye. Therefore, we paid and went to extra Virgin and had a lovely dinner w great service."

"I've been to DeSantos a few times for brunch and enjoyed it. However this was the first time I had to actually send my food back. I ordered the burger and asked the waitress for it to be cooked medium well and for the bacon to be very crispy. Both were served almost raw and had to be returned to the kitchen to be cooked longer. Waitress was very accommodating. Despite this one instance, I would return."

"Came to De Santos with my Husband at 7:30pm on a Saturday night. The restaurant was empty but by 8:30pm the restaurant was full. We came in and with some minor confusion we were seated. The restaurant is romantic with nice decor good for a date (although a bit loud) or for a group. Our waitress was very friendly although she didn't seem to know the menu too well. We ordered the truffle Mac and cheese with bacon appetizer (although I wouldn't order the bacon next time I overpowers the truffle flavor which I wouldn't taste) second appetizer we ordered was the gnocchi carpaccio with arugula which was very good, gnocchi tasted home made. For main course we had the tuna steak which was good and the steak which was under seasoned really nothing special. The lava cake was excellent, probably the best next to the gnocchi appetizer. Overall the atmosphere is very nice, food was good, service was poor. After we received our appetizers our waitress didn't come to check up on us until we ordered desert. We felt like we were invisible to her since she passed by our table several times. In my opinion the restaurant is mismanaged. If service was faster they would turn tables over atleast twice for the amount of time we spent there. I was also here for a baby shower and had the same issue with service."

"We enjoyed our meal. Service was attentive and food was ok. Everything turned out fine after they remade my over cooked pork chop. This is a no frills, easy going spot in a townhouse in Greenwich Village. My only complaint is they don't open until 6pm, including the bar, which I found odd. If they want to make money open your bar at 5pm an hour before dinner service so people can sit, relax, and have a cocktail before dinner."

"Small but excellent menu and the food was beautifully prepared. We went at a quiet time and got to sit out back (inside/outside terrace) which is lovely."

"DeSantos has a great brunch deal and with the word deal usually comes the assumption that the food with be sub-par. This is not true at DeSantos! The food is some of the best brunch food around with a great vibe and scene."

"a cute place with exposed brick walls, attentive service.
The food was good, the beet salad was fresh, the caprese salad was beautifully presented.
the tuna was ok, not very flavorful
the salmon was about the same.

"On the coldest day of the year, we were seated in the charming garden area of the restaurant. Unfortunately, they would not (we asked twice) turn on the overhead heating lamps. We were all shivering for the duration of the meal. This was one of my favorite restaurants, but after this experience I do not think we will return."

"De Santos is a great brunch place when you have a large group visiting from out of town. They make it super easy to make a reservation for large parties and have a prefix that includes brunch items and all you can drink brunch beverages. Super fun, but definitely can be very crowded and loud, so best if you have a younger crowd!"
