Almond Ratings and Reviews

Restaurant was overly warm; menu limited, although wait and kitchen staff were very accommodating to make changes. Most importantly, the food was not prepared well or consistently--overcooked in some plates and very under in others. In one case plated extremely unappealingly. Took forever to get the check at lunchtime, so one of My guests actually had to leave. It's a great location, so a shame.

My friends and I were the first guests to arrive on a beautiful Sunday morning. So, it took the staff a little while to get started. However, our waiter was very attentive and helped us choose wisely. My friend and I had the chorizo and manchego omelet which was delicious. My friend's husband had the eggs Bendict an enjoyed it immensely. The mini biscuits served before our meals arrived were warm and delicious! It was a lovely day and we were able to sit outside and, given it was the July 4th holiday weekend, the street was quiet and we didn't have to deal with much street noise. I would definitely go to Almond again and would love to try their ricotta pancakes.

Almost all of the food was well prepared and plated properly. The wait and bus staff seemed a little overwhelmed in paying attention to clearing plates, keeping water supplied to the table, coordinating delivery of each course with the previous course(s). It was not that busy so it's likely to be a result of experience level. Worse thing was the cold shrimp cocktail was a little uneven in terms of preparation quality and size. All the other dishes were good to very good in preparation. Not rushed to leave, so that was nice for a summer evening

We went here for brunch based on good reviews, but what a big disappointment it was! We waited at least 40 minutes before we were served, the food was not good (I had better food at a local diner), it was 90 degrees outside and they do NOT have the AC on, and the manager turn on loud music in the middle of our meals, we had to ask them to turn it down, it was so annoying ! the we paid over 90 dollars for 3 people. you be the judge!

The menu was very interesting. Farm to Table approach. Server failed to advise that the menu special of the evening was not available, so we had to rethink our approach to the meal after waiting too long for attention and for drinks. I would return, but would request a different server. Service not equal to the food or the prices.

The elevated front deck allows for outdoor dining without feeling like you are sharing your table with passers-by or taxi exhaust. A great varied menu with something for everyone. Excellent and imaginative Nicoise salad made with grilled trout is highly recommended.

The service was very disappointing. Our server was very inattentive- he came to the table only to take orders and then once more. I had brought this up to the host who handed me his card and apologized. Poor service all around- will not return or recommend.

My biggest concern here was service. Simply couldn't get server's attention for check, etc. Food arrived 3/4 mostly at the same time. Food was fine--nothing over the top. Little biscuits were good. Server checked back as we finished to see if we needed anything. Hostess was lovely--overall there are tastier and better value brunches in NYC-but this did the job.
Food was very good and staff were very ...
Food was very good and staff were very nice but seemed in the weeds very early on. Our food took a very long time to come out and our server was hard to find, all this for an early dinner reservation with a half empty restaurant. But I would still go again, lovely menu, beautiful restaurant.
We've dined at Almond a few times and have always enjoyed it, but not this time. Our entrees were SO salty, neither of us could finish our meal. When our server we were honest with him, but he made no attempt to make us happy. Overall, a very disappointing dining experience!
My boyfriend and I waited 50min for EGGS. Awful.
This dinning experience was AWFUL. My boyfriend and I have come for dinner and waited longer then most places for our food but in the end the food was great. So we decided to give it a shot for brunch, BIG mistake. We both ordered eggs and waited almost an hour to actually get our food. The server was rude and made it clear he did not care that we were frustrated. The service is a big part of dinning and this really left a bad taste in my mouth. Never dinning here again and will gladly tell friends and other of my awful experience here. It's a real shame since the food is good- well the dinner menu.
I hate that I have to write down 50 words. It makes the process more hard to give a good review.
I wish they just let me say great job or loved it and be good enough. It had a 4.5 star rating and that is the reason I picked it. It was a lovely place.
Fullfilling brunch. Great service
I had a a good brunch with a friend . Very friendly staff and food was good overall . My turkey burger was a bit overcooked and dry..spicy mayo made it yummy . The cheesecake was very tasty and definitely a must try .
Nice and chill ambiance . Will go back and order something else .
Almond is not a joy.
I paid $24 for a brunch of 3 smallish lukewarm pancakes and 2 cups of lukewarm coffee, tax and tip. Food just average but expensive. Noise level is high as it is filled with 20 somethings doing their thing. Not a good place for anyone over 40. I won't be going here anymore.
great food, fair service, nice setting.
for some reason our food was very slow to come out, but appetizers and dinner entrees were all fantastic, though i found dessert only alright. service wasn't particularly attentive - had to ask for more menus when the rest of our party arrived, and not all were cleared after we ordered, but overall fine enough. lovely atmosphere and i'd come back to try their brunch.
always a good place for brunch
We enjoy Almond for brunch since we very much like the food; the staff is normally very accommodating and friendly. Since it's a popular place, it is very crowded and noisy around lunch time on a Sunday with people waiting all over the entrance lobby. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere as well although I don't care for the tables in the back towards the kitchen.
