"High hopes...I expected the food to be much better. The risotto tasted more like white rice and lacked taste, we had to add salt but there was no 'fine' salt so that didn't help much. Very noisy and over-priced for what it caters to be."

"The Little Owl is the definition of neighborhood gem. It's nestled on a quiet corner on a residential street in the West Village and fellow diners are just as trendy as the restaurant itself. The space is small so I would recommend making a reservation. That being said, it's worth making a reservation weeks in advance if you get to try some of their food! Must try the risotto, chicken and green beans. Perfect for dates, special occasions, and intimate dinners. Highly recommend!"

"All on-line reviews said the meatballs were not to be missed. They were salty and bland. Would not order them again. Fried artichoke was good as was the lamb cannalloi. Service was excellent."

"What a phenomenal little restaurant, holy cow. I'm still thinking about the food. What we ate: we split the Caesar salad and pear salad. They separated them beautifully on our plates. Then I had the Gnocchi special (best gnocchi ever) and my friend had the steak and eggs. The steak was delectable. We had the green beans as well as the Brussels sprouts on the side. Nothing was left on our plates. We devoured everything. I even got the Apple Strudel for desert, as full as I was. It was even better than you would hope. A perfect meal!"

"I repeatedly have met friends for lunch or dinner at The Little Owl and never have been disappointed. Located at one of the most scenic spots in the West Village, The Little Owl features seasonal local products in a cozy but sophisticated setting. The staff is friendly and attentive. This is one not to miss!"

"Hoo doesn't love Little Owl?! C'mon, the food is always fantastic, this time the Italian wedding soup, shrimp ravioli and hake were all delicious. And the atmosphere is cozy and makes you feel part of the "in crowd," at least if you like the Village. Thanks, Miguel!"

"From the moment we stepped in, we were made to feel especially welcome. The pleasant, caring and efficient hostess and the wait staff listened carefully and made excellent suggestions. We were encouraged to share dishes and ask for dietary concerns to be considered. Our theater deadline was fully respected. We had a great meal, trying the signature dish (amazing meatballs!) and the special (tender skirt steak cooked just right with melting mini enchiladas stuffed with potato and spinach - try them if you get a chance). Desserts were wonderful. All in all, a great meal in pleasant surroundings with terrific service. we'll be back."

"We have been to the Little Owl at least two times, once for an early pre-show dinner and more recently for brunch. The operant word is "little," a cozy place for dinner on a cold day, but for brunch we were really packed in, waiters can barely get to the table. But they were very nice and did the best they could. Really a place for two, not good for larger parties.
Moderately loud at dinner, at brunch "energetic" is a euphemism for really loud.
The food is straightforward, not too many ingredients. We tried the gravy meatball sliders -- house specialty, grandma's recipe, good enough for what they are -- at brunch. As I recall, the food at dinner was much better, but, it seems, not very memorable because I don't remember what I had.
Bottom line, if you don't mind being squeezed between tables on either side, the Little Owl is a rather charming little neighborhood joint with decent food. We don't regret going there a second time, but we won't hurry back when back again in NYC, there are too many other good options."
