Very nice ambience with a romantic touch. Service was very friendly but a bit amateurish. We ordered glasses of a white wine and the wine that was delivered was clearly not what we ordered. The server insisted that it was poured from the right bottle but then checked again with the bar and came back and apologized that we were correct. The food was decent but substantially overpriced.

Always amazing. The beef Wellington is to die for and the chicken is delectable. Don't skip the chocolate soufflé. Tremendous. The wine selection is great. The staff makes everyone feel welcome, from young couples to older ones (the mark of good service). Fabulous place.

Top rate experience! The food was fantastic (we all did the 3 course prix fixed and every option was delicious). Very nice and friendly service with a gregarious hostess who started us off so pleasantly. The restaurant is beautiful- such a lovely place and our table looked out at the courtyard. We will be back.

This was our 3rd time here in the past ten years. Each time was a little downhill.
The food was just ok. The service was a little smug. I felt it was overpriced. I've been to many Michelin rated places and this one has lost its edge

Food is delicious, servings were surprisingly filling and the ambience is very tastefull. I have been to other high end dinning places in the city but this is the best I have had in a while. Would not go here too often because of the price, but will definitely return really soon.

My husband and I went here for our 1 year wedding anniversary. They were very accommodating for our tardiness and the hostess was extremely warm and welcoming. We may be a bit biased because my husband is a chef/restaurant owner, but there were a few items that were really lacking that took away from our experience. We ordered a bottle of wine, the server showed it to my husband and didn't offer him a taste, although we did note he offered this to other diners. Three times runners came to our table with another table's food or beverage. Runners were never aware of the right positioning for our meals...there were only 2 of us, c'mon. The waiter took around 20 minutes to come take our dessert order. And overall the food was wasn't very good. The dining room was beautiful, but when service is poor and the food was just okay, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Absolutely beautiful restaurant with outstanding food and service. Their wine list is pretty extensive. The food was die for! Our monthiversary was made very special by the food and ambiance. Thank you one if by land two if by sea crew!

Beautiful restaurant, but the food was not good and quite expensive. The three course fixed price dinner was $109 plus the wine costs start around $70. So, including tip the cost was about $400.
The tenderloin for the appetizer was poor quality meat. The breading for the beef wellington was like a pizza roll rather than a puff pastry.
The service was great and the place beauiful.

Almost everything was perfect. The only complain was that the crab appetizer had the sauce that was too salty in my personal opinion . Other then that perfect. The live music, service, and the main dish (Duck was great)

Never disappoints!! The food is always outstanding, the service is impeccable and the ambience and setting is as perfect and romantic as the first time I dined at this exceptional restaurant some 25 years ago!!! One if by Land is first class and not to be missed!!

I have no complaints. It was a great place to celebrate my 10 year anniversary with my wife. Upon entering all the way through dinner the staff was very attentive and accommodating. Pricey but worth it. Soft lighting, live piano, a warm fire, good drinks good food.

One If By Land is, hands-down, the most romantic restaurant I have ever experienced. A live pianist sits at the grand piano in the lounge/waiting area, complete with a crackling fireplace and big comfy chairs. You may be serenaded by the violinist who walks through the restaurant. Candlelight at each table, views of the lovely gardens, 5 enormous chandeliers in the main dining room, romantic all the way through. The service is impeccable. Maria, who I believe manages and serves as hostess, ensures that your all-around experience is outstanding. And the food, by the way, is delicious (scallops tempura and beef wellington, divine!). Unique and generously portioned, and yes, pricey, but the experience is so worth the extra $$. I would not recommend this for a first date as it is very intimate.
I live in Minneapolis and my husband and I have traveled to NYC for our anniversary a couple times over the years and THIS is the restaurant where we celebrate. Perfect for a special occasion or celebration. You will NOT be disappointed!

I HIGHLY recommend One if By Land, Two if By Sea. First of all, the service was phenomenal. My spouse is chronically late, and they pushed the reservation back by an hour, and still accommodated us when he was 45 minutes late after that. The restaurant closes at 9:30, but when I inquired the waiter replied "so long as you're here, we will serve you". We, and other patrons, were there until 10:30.
I use a mobility scooter, and this restaurant was easily accessible to me. To be able to access a restaurant housed in an historic venue in NY meant a lot to me, as so much of NY is inaccessible.
The food was excellent. It was prepared and served impeccably. My husband had the octopus, and I had the chicken. They even brought him a dessert for his birthday. I ordered a hazelnut cake and it was just the right portion after such a rich meal.
We cannot wait to return to this restaurant in the future. Romantic ambience, a building steeped in history, and outstanding service. We were blown away! This is our new tradition when we travel to the city.

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.

We were disappointed by the experience. The decor of the place is nice and romantic, but the service and food were not on par with the price. The food tasted good, but the menu was pretty standard with not much creativity. The waiter was friendly, but did not have the experience I would expect for the price of the place.

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.
