Went for dinner with a friend, wanting to try out a new restaurant in my new neighborhood. The service was constant from the moment we walked in, and the place, while small, felt intimate so that we were able to have some serious and real conversations. The food was so great. The bread was warm when brought to the table! Both our soups were spectacular and had a unique taste. I thought the prices were totally reasonable. We ate for $30! I can't wait to go back and try more dishes! I don't know what others are talking about - this place is fabulous!

I went here for the first time to celebrate a friend's graduation. You would think that since there were very few diners in the restaurant, the service would be better than prompt. But NO. We had to wait what seemed like forever to get the bread. There is a dearth of items on the menu, about 12 offerings. If you include the appetizers, the desserts, and the beverages, the bill of fare offered no more than 20 items at terribly inflated prices. After what seemed an endless wait, finally the dish for one of the four persons at our table was brought out. The other three still had to wait. In the meantime, we were so hungry that we asked for more bread. That took awhile to arrive also. I would have thought that they had sent someone out to catch the fish and seafood we had ordered. When the food finally arrived, my dish, which was very nicely presented consisted of 3 scallops with some greens$24.00. And, I should add that the quality of the food was so-so. The staff seemed to be more interested in chatting with each other. When we had finished our meal and two of those at the table asked for dessert, there was another infinite wait. Finally, when the desserts arrived, it was already so late that we had to ask the waiter to put the desserts in doggie bags so we could take them with us. I will certainly not go back to this place. I think that since there are very few restaurants in the area, the owners think that the clientele will tolerate having very few choices on a menu and terrible service. My thoughts are that this place is going to bite the dust before the year is up.

I agree with the review that said "going downhill fast." This place started out great a few years ago, and has been going downhill at an alarming rate ever since. Our last few experiences have finally sent us over the edge. Delivery is the worst - one often has to return food that is clearly spoiled. Neighbors have said, rightly I think, that there are so few restaurants (only 3) in our weirdly isolated nook of Manhattan that this place quickly figured out that they had a captive audience - and proceeded to raise prices consistently and forget about quality and service. One hears complaints from nearly every table. As I said - we're done with them.

I think the previous reviewer is a bit confused - 107 West doesn't serve sushi, and has some vegetarian dishes but doesn't appear to claim to be a vegetarian restaurant. They must have mixed this restaurant up with another. In any case, I think the place is great, and I appreciate having several options on the menu - there may be four or five pages, but at least a couple of those pages are drinks, and the variety of the food is great. I've never had a bad dish. The ambiance could use a little work, but the value for the price is fantastic.

I always wish this place would find a focus. Is it sushi? Are they Asian? Vegetarian? No meat? And what is up with that greek diner sized menu?! The tuna burger is fine. The noodle dish is acceptable and so is the wine selection for what it is. I don't, however, like to order sushi from the back room of an otherwise focused restaurant. But what is that focus? I don't know... Decide what you want to be and go for it! Do it well. I love the sandwich board outside. Sometimes it is really funny.

I moved to this neighborhood several years ago and I had been consistently enjoying food delivery from them until recently. I was always pleased with the variety of options, including their daily specials. The food always tasted good and fresh. However, the last several times I've ordered from here, the quality has significantly deteriorated. The same dishes I have always ordered have suddenly become blander and don't seem to be made with the same level of freshness in the ingredients that I had become accustomed to. This is unfortunate, as I had become somewhat dependent on 107 when I wanted a good order-in meal and wasn't in the mood to cook. I don't know if the same holds true for dining in, but it looks like it's time to find some new delivery options.

We ordered (for delivery) the creole chicken and shrimp and the pepper fettucine with chicken and shrimp. Both arrived hot- not warm.... HOT- and tasted great. I don't know what the other people on here are talking about, because after living uptown for almost a year now, this is one of the best places I've ordered from or eaten in! I will defintely eat here again.
