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.

I had six courses meal for dinner. Food was good, you dont feel fantastic for every served food, but couple of them were really good, especially fried scallop. Beside food, This place will be definately one of the preetiest place in your life. Good place for visit!

This is a beautiful and romantic place for dinner. However it's well overpriced for the quality of service. The bartender was oblivious of my waiting to ask for a cocktail, the copper bar counter was dirty and with a forgotten bottle of Windex in plain sight and a lot of grammatical mistakes in the menu. If they want me to pay $91 for a veal chop, they better have an exceptionally perfect detailed oriented service. Once we were seated the service and dining experience was wonderful. I especially loved the excellent desserts: gorgeous designs and delicious.

We had our wedding dinner here. Incredible service by our waiter Seb - he was a greater server who added to the experience. If (when) we go back we would ask for him to serve us. The food was amazing as well - beef wellington has been on the menu since 71' (Seb informed us about) - There is reason why! When we were finished dinner the manager went down the street to hail a cab for us in the rain and we were given complementary champagne while we waited. Also, live piano or Frank Sinatra was played in the background throughout the evening.

The food was phenomenal. We got the 9 course meal with wine pairing. I particularly enjoyed the scallop tempura with fried quail egg and the beef Wellington.
I would have given the restaurant a 5 star but our service was lack luster. We saw surround table being helped by other waiters and it was great how they interacted with their guests. However our waiter barely spoke to us and when he did it was for a quick second.
Again, the food was amazing. I just wish our waiter was someone else.

The ambiance was exactly what we were hoping for. The old carriage house turned restaurant had a romantic, dreamy feel and the chandeliers and candlelight really set mood. The food really missed the mark. In a city of inventive foods with bold flavors, the food could have been so much more. Rolls were hard and dry, flavors of dishes didn't make sense together. I didn't finish any of my 3 courses. Atmosphere was an A+, but this was not a place for foodies.

Went for my husband's birthday and he was pleasantly surprised! We did the 6course tasting menu with the wine pairing we definitely weren't disappointed. Fantastic food, great wine, beautiful ambiance!! Will definitely go again! Mentioned while was making my reservation that it was my husband's birthday and they made sure to send out a little something with a candle without me having to tell the server.

Great food, great service, and just a very cool place for a romantic dinner. I have planned to dine there many times but something always got in the way. Now, I'm glad that I finally had a chance to dine there and it was enjoyable in every way.

sadly not the same restaurant it was years ago... felt rushed. the wine pairing included no descriptions of the wine other than the grape varietal. food was quite bland. 500dollars + for a meal for two should not feel rushed and should be a bit more memorable.

Wonderful restaurant for special occasions or just fine dining. Very romantic setting, especially by windows overlooking the garden. Service was professional, friendly, and excellent. Food was carefully prepared and excellent. Very good wine list with depth to provide options for personal tastes. Overall, an excellent experience (which you pay for).

Very cool discreet location in the Village. Fixed menus to fit all appetites. I went with their signature sweetbreads appetizer-- it was outstanding. Entree was another signature dish the Beef Wellington. Wow. Not too heavy. Perfectly cooked. Dessert was a grand mariner soufflé. Omg. The best I ever had.
Very romantic. Beautiful view of garden with lights. Area is very fun.

The CHEESIEST place on the entire planet. If you are a couple from Ohio, you might enjoy the white roses and taper candles and the pianist playing "I Dreamed a Dream" but for any NY couple under 65, this place was just flat out cheesy and awkward. It's like every guy in there had googled "most romantic restaurant NYC" and ended up with the same overpriced result.

Food is good, desserts are excellent - great pastry chef. Our waiter kept on filling our wine glasses without asking - generally would have expected a little bit better service. Ambience is outstanding: probably one of - if not the - most romantic place to dine in NYC.

We were in NYC to see "Hamilton" so it seemed in keeping with the theme to have dinner at One if by Land, Two if by Sea. We had drinks at the bar before dinner - the pianist was playing a mixture of show tunes and 60s songs. Our meal was delicious - the prix fixe menu had more than enough choices for us both to be very happy. The sea bass in particular was wonderful.
If you're looking for the latest, hottest restaurant, this isn't for you. If you are looking for quiet, classic elegance you cant do better.
