We came on a relatively quiet Tuesday afternoon to celebrate our anniversary. We were welcomed with warmth and provided great service throughout. Our server, James, was accommodating and knowledgeable of the menu. I convinced myself to tryout their special entree - salmon Wellington. The fish was cooked to perfection but the mustard glaze was less than desirable. To be fair, our server did provide an honest take on the dish. Mustard just doesn't suit my pallet.

We visited this restaurant as a special celebratory treat and were not disappointed. The food was wonderful, the staff attentive and friendly but not intrusive and the ambience intimate. The backdrop to the evening was the sublime music provided by the extraordinary pianist.
It was hard to leave, we could have stayed much longer.

Special Occasion "Go To" Place!!!
My husband and I just love the quiet ambiance in this romantic, converted carriage house in the West Village. It is family owned, and the service is very personal and friendly, the atmosphere is just perfect for a quiet, candlelit dinner. The food is delectable, with several options, whether a la carte, or chef's prepared courses. The wine list is also notable. Our favorite appetizer was the veal sweetbreads and the beef wellington entree was fabulous!! We celebrated our 10th anniversary engagement and couldn't have enjoyed it more!

This place is extremely overpriced for what it is. The food is good, nothing to say on that point, and the wine list is very extensive. What is extremely disappointing and completely unacceptable is the poor service from the staff. When you are charging these kind of prices service should follow the quality and the standing of the place. Our service was rushed, our waiter seemed dismissive, not attentive and sometimes even bothered by the fact my wife wanted sometime to finished her wine...
If you are looking for a romantic place at these price levels there are dozen of options in the city that are far better than this mediocre place.

I've heard about this restaurant and decided to give it a try. What a disappointment! We were seated upstairs where there is a total lack of ambience. Their signature dish is beef Wellington so I decided to try it. Again, another disappointment. Not only was the fillet overcooked, it was exceptionally dry. Scallop tempura appetizer was nothing to write home about. The best part of the meal was dessert. At these prices I should not have to wait to the last course to have a smile on my face.

I enjoyed the enviornment and the service was exceptional. However, I was very disappointed with the poor recommendation that our server made. Additionally, the information about the food that was provided to me was incorrect and not a true representation of what the food was.

The candles and red roses on the tables make this a very romantic restaurant. The grand piano and the pianist was wonderful. There is a lovely chilling lounge area and fantastic bar. We were on our honeymoon and even danced in the bar but still felt we were having a moment just for the two of us.

Surprising high quality dining in what I would consider a generally run down area. Very expensive but worth it for a one off. Wine prices cause sharp intake of breath.
Food very nice and well presented, very nice ambience. Excellent piano player, though poor man seemed to be totally ignored by most customers.
All in all a great experience though pressing the budget.

While quite expensive, the service was attentive and the food (all three meals) was well prepared and tasty. Not especially handicapped-friendly (the bathrooms are down a flight of poorly-lit, narrow stairs), it is a comfortable place and the maitress d' and the servers do their best to accommodate special requests. Never rushed.

Service was exceptional our waiter was knowledgeable of the menu & patient. Our appetizers were ok. I had the veal sweet bread which was a little bland & dry. Would I order it again? No. My wife had the wild caught crab. She said it was tasty. Main course I had the beef wellington. Absolutely delicious! The wife had their smoked ribs. They were fall off the bone good. Dessert at the recommendation of our waiter, had the carribean banna delight. Delicious! Was booming with flavor. The wife had the chocolate moose w/coffee ice cream. It was Yuk! Basically warm tasteless pudding. They should drop it from the menu ASAP! & replace it w/dominican style cake. It would be a hit. Overall we had a great dining experience & will return.

Phenomenal experience , attentive service, excellent ambience, fantastic tasting menu.
Lisa was also fantastic at arranging our special anniversary and the lady on the evening was superb and made our evening very special.

Loved every minute of it! extremely romantic! Beautifully lit and fantastically decorated. One if by Land, Two if by Water, has a rich history and lots of character! Loved the main dining room's high ceiling and exposed brick. A table in front of the garden is a real treat, especially if you're on a hot date! The Pianist did a fantastic job of incorporating current song's into his set list. Fine dining at its finest. Beef wellington was Life changing, GGAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!

This is one of my top ten favorite restaurants based on the overall experience and quality of the food. Extremely, romantic with multiple fireplaces and live piano playing, One if by Land is an incredible Manhattan icon of the restaurant world and deserves all of the accolades.

I am eating at this restaurant every time I come to NYC. Ambience and food are outstanding! Great for a romantic dinner! Only negative is when seated close to air condition - every time the thermostat kicks in its freezing, so for ladies it's advisable to bring additional clothing even on a warm day.

We didnt know that we must order both apptizer&entree (minimum of two dish). We didnt want to order apptizer because we didnt find anything we like. I have never been to the restaurant where you must order certain number of dish.

Wonderful food, service and ambience. The piano is too close to some tables and therefore too loud for conversation. Asked for a table change and we were immediately accommodated. Staff was helpful and non-intrusive.

One if by Land..is a gem of a restaurant. The service was impeccable; the server went to great lengths to accommodate my husband's request for a very full ice bucket. The whole staff was totally "on it" without being overbearing. The food was exquisite. We opted for the Price Fix 6 course meal -- a splurge -- but worth every penny. Every morsel was consumed with delight. Don't miss out on the Wellington...we remembered it from over a decade ago, and it was still every bit as scrumptious. Although there may be a whole new crop of newer, "hipper" restaurants with celebrity chefs, etc, One If by Land... is a solid, reliable choice for a special evening with incredible service, superb cuisine, in a historic, romantic venue (Aaron Burr's carriage house).

The waiter indicated the signature dish of beef wellington remains on the menu for 40 years.
OK, great....but the beef is filet mignon and the least tasty cut of any great meat dish.
