One of the best kept secrets in Manhattan, One If By Land is great food in a fabulous setting. A Prix Fixe dinner (I think it was three course for $135) might seem a little pricey, but everything was fabulous. Christmas decorations, glowing fires, piano music in the background... it was everything you could want. I had lobster in cioppino broth, and started with foie gras. Both were outstanding. Dessert was a chocolate souffle, which alone would have made the trip worth it. Put it on your list!!

have been there many times over the last 20 years mostly for anniversaries or birthdays. The food is and has always been excellent. Atmosphere is romantic and the room that looks out at the garden sets the mood for a wonderful dining experience. As always, a great evening.

Several weeks prior to arriving in New York I requested the most romantic table in the restaurant due to it being my wedding night. We were sat in the middle of the restaurant basically out in the middle of everyone. The food was below par and overly priced. The scallops were cold and the Lamb Chops were under cooked at MR. The Beef Wellington was overpowered with butter. The scene inside the restaurant was beautiful so thanks for that.

Incredibly cozy space in an historic West Village building. Food was delicious and the staff was very attentive and polite. The only complaint is that portion sizes were not consistent at our table of four. for certain courses of the prix fixe meal, some of our table had much smaller portions comparatively.

Having eaten there on the Sunday of every Thanksgiving since 2001 - it is difficult to put into words how disappointed we were with our experience on Sun 27-Nov-2016. Perfunctory doesn't even cover how poor our experience was. My husband had his 50th Birthday Party there in January 2013 & fantastic as this event was, and always wanting to give the restaurant the benefit of the doubt, after our experience on Sun 27-Nov-2016 we shall not be returning and will no longer recommend the restaurant as a go-to-destination when our Irish & UK friends ask us about go-to restaurants in NYC.

We went to this beautiful restaurant for my husband's 50th birthday. It is definitely very romantic, the ambiance is amazing. Unfortunately, there was a big family of about 16 people next to us who celebrated a birthday as well and the noise level rose which we understand but for us trying to have a romantic evening spoilt things. On another table a woman facetimed with her daughter on speaker which left us speechless. Anyway, this wasn't the restaurant's fault, some people just don't have any manners.
The staff was very friendly and made sure we had everything. The food was really nice, good portions and nicely spiced. However; it does not justify the price as the ingredients weren't that exclusive or overly expensive and we left the restaurant feeling ripped off. I guess you pay half the price for the ambiance which in our case we didn't have.

Dessert was the best part! I also had the Beef Wellington which was top notch. The scallops were prepared perfectly as well.
I was disturbed by and wish they did not serve foie gras. It really is not considered a luxury item anymore and really is exposed for being a diseased piece of meat which is why I was surprised to see it on their menu. Everything else was perfect.

Wonderful special occasion restaurant. Very beautiful atmosphere with a lot of history in the building. Food was excellent. They only had a priced fixed menu no a la carte which sometimes we prefer as we do not always need a dessert.

I hate price fixe. Shame on me for not knowing ahead of time. The main courses were very good- I had beef wellington. We had three different appetizers ...they were OK...three different desserts- lousy. Not worth it, sady.

OIBL TIBS is always excellent. The room is one of the most beautiful in the world. The staff is warm and inviting, from the greeting at the door, the bartender and all of the waitstaff. The veal chop is my favorite dish, but there is something fir everyone to choose from.

it has been a while since we were here at this restaurant, so we had high expectations. Well we ordered a very nice bottle of wine. As soon as the bottle arrived we ordered our meal. As soon as we started to have our 2nd sip of wine the appetizer's arrived, I said to the waiter how is this possible??? is this food already made??? you can tell by the smear of the sauce on the dish that it was under a heat lamp. I complained to the waiter but he had nothing to say. My wife had the crabmeat soufflé and she was very disappointed as it was very watery , my dish was the octopus and it was tough to eat.
So as soon as the appetizer was cleared off the table the main course arrived. same thing , the meal looked like it was sitting under a heat lamp. As we eat the beef wellington it was cooked right but it was dry and the best part was the outer layer and it was just unacceptable.
So as I complained further to the waiter ( who was very nice ) I was told that since I was here last the restaurant is under new ownership and on the weekends they feel it is very busy that they need to expedite service so they can turn tables over ( while we were eating there were 2 open tables the entire time we were there, and that was the small room upstairs)
I told the waiter that if I wanted fast food I would go to a fast food restaurant and not have to spend the amount of money we did.
Unfortunately this restaurant missed out on the word dining experience as there was none.
It was our anniversary and while we were dating this was a very special restaurant to us, I can say now that I will never go back here as I do like to dine and not eat fast food. maybe during the week it is different but I will never get that chance to find out as my complaints went unheard by the very nice waiter. I still left him a very nice tip as it was not by his choice to expedite the meals as fast as he did.

The service was subpar, to be kind. After a long wait, they forgot to bring our appetizers and instead brought our mains. Lots of waiting. My partner was done with his meal before I even began mine. Literally. So, yeah, terrible service. The food and drinks, though, were amazing.

We love One if By Land. Maria is the most lovely proprietor. We come alost every year for our anniversary and she always remembers us. The food is delicious and ambience is sophisticated and beautiful. its romantic and elegant.

This is our 1st time back to the restaurant in a long time. We traveled to NYC to celebrate my wife's birthday. The entire experience was 1st class. The owner was present on a Thursday evening and ensured that our evening was special. Highly recommend the restaurant.

Perfect. In an 18th century carriage house that retains an elegant, but relaxed atmosphere. Small fireplaces offer a lovely venue for drinks. Tables in the dining room are well spaced. There was lovely piano music the night we were there. Service was excellent. The drinks were generous and well mixed. The food was very good. It is my new favorite place in New York; don't know how I missed going there all this time.
