Went here a few weeks ago and was one of the best meals we had all had in the past few months dining out in the city. The food was subtle and complex, and at really reasonable prices for the quality. Deserves much more attention!

Just had dinner here with a group of friends on Monday night* and every single dish we had was excellent. Duck, chicken, risotto, pappardelle - all fantastic. *No corkage fee on Mondays.

Excellent food. Cannot say anything bad about the food. But the poor service left an awful taste in our mouths. I had been to this place several times before and the food was GREAT! I was really excited to take my parents and fiance there. I brought my father's favorite pastries because we were celebrating Father's Day, and I asked the hostess to put them in the fridge until we were ready for dessert. She said it was fine and brought them into the kitchen. When it was time for dessert, the waitress refused to bring the pastries out until we ordered other desserts and coffee. So then the manager comes over and says, just to let you know, there is a $5 per plate fee for the pastries. We obviously objected, and this woman kept insisting that it was just their policy and there was nothing she could do about it. So we cancelled the desserts and coffees that we ordered, totaling about $40, and took them back to my apartment. There was six of us eating and had already racked up a bill of about $400, with a 20% gratuity automatically added to the bill. Our waitress was incredibly rude, and was openly complaining about our table right in front of my mother! It was a disappointing experience. It really sucks because we live very close by and do love the food. But I really don't see myself, or my family going there again.

Apiary, which I'd walked past and dismissed as just another yuppoid joint, is anything but now that I've dined there for myself. I had the organic chicken, which was probably the best chicken I've ever had in my life. A special appetizer crab cake, ditto. The flourless chocolate cake with molten center and vanilla ice cream, ditto. My friends had monkfish, merluza, panna cotta, blackberry financier. And were equally enthusiastic. The service was superb. The only thing I didnt care for was the noise level, which, on a Saturday night, was ear-splitting. Still, I will absolutely be back.

we had a big group - it's a tight space so the staff was very accommodating. we ordered almost everything on the menu family style - the pork chop was tender and exceptional, the roast chicken melted in our mouths, the steak was very satisfying...BUT the true shiner was the squid ink linguine, which has been taken off the menu (seasonal changes?). i entreat you, apiary, to bring it back! everyone at the table raved about the salty goodness that was that dish. it took our dining experience to the next level.

The food at Apiary was quite good, but it is not cheap. My scallop appetizer was delicious (had chorizo in in, yum) and cod fish/calamari/fennel entree was an unusual treat that the knowledgable waitress steered me toward (versus a more mundane hanger steak/potato puree dish). The pana cotta dessert was light and the right finish to a very solid meal. A few gripes: 1) decor was a tad miami beach/art deco/nothing bee-oriented about it; 2) while waiting for the rest of my party to arrive, the bartender took his sweet time before offering me a cocktail menu or glass of water. Nonetheless, this is a welcome addition to the third ave east vil restaurant scene. For cheaper but also good fare, try the Smith across the street.
