Our appetizers of grilled asparagus and escarole were delicious. Special of the day was a veal chop, which was very good, thick chop and very juicy. Cavatelli with shrimp sausage wasn't bad, but it was a bit oversalted. Strawberry and rhubarb crisp was good but not spectacular. Portions are large and can be shared, which makes it a better value. Restaurant has a cozy, warm feel. Overall we had a good experience.

Great spot with good, quality food. I am a lover of steak frites and order the dish wherever I go...Almond's is one of the better steak frites in NYC! Also, the service was impressive. We sat at the bar and talked to the bartender for a while while waiting for our table. He knew everything about the menu and made some great suggestions. When we moved outside to our table, our waiter was equally as knowledgeable and friendly. Can't wait to go back!

I liked the buzz as soon as I walked in. Service was pleasant and we were seated quickly. We tried a number of dishes, amongst the best were the amazing beef short ribs, served with mini potato pancake. The scallops and roasted chicken were also really tasty. We splurged on one mac and cheese to share and only got thru half of it. It was decadent and good! Pours of wine were generous, also. We really enjoyed the desserts, particularly the warm apple crisp(huge) with ice cream. I would definitely go back!

not sure what the below reviewers saw, but this foodie was unimpressed. Nice atmosphere, but chairs were very uncomfortable and tables too close; got bumped about 6 times during the meal. service was OK; food was pretty good, but the chef went overboard with the salt. wine choices are all french, which is not good if you like CA. with so many choices in the big city, would go elsewhere.

I didnt know how my favorite Hamptons restaurant would do in the city, but it's a breath of fresh are. The great food at a great value with the best service qualities from its counterpart is a relief for the city. No pretension here, either. Now my favorite EH restaurant

This place is too good to be true. Good food, good prices. Unpretentious. relaxed, welcoming and a nice looking crowd. Are we really in Manhattan? Can't wait to go back.

I've been to Almond a few times now, always with a large group, and I've always loved, loved, LOVED everything about it! The food really speaks for itself. Everything is delicious. My suggestion is to go in a big group, order everything on the menu and share everything. Don't skimp on the appetizers! The seafood platter is awesome, as is the short ribs, fish balls and escargot. You have to order the Grande Mac & Cheese - it comes with truffles and prosciutto!
