    Exceeded Expectations

    Colors is entirely gluten free, but one wouldn't know without looking for it. From start to finish, our dinner last night was elegant and full of pleasant surprises. The fried chicken, their signature dish, was outstanding. Our dessert was s simple strawberry sundae with shortbread cookies, and it was pure heaven. The ambience was soothing and romantic, the service attentive and friendly. The diners were a mix of young & old, gay & straight, boys & girls - clearly Colors appeals to all types of discriminating tastes. I can't wait to go back and try their brunch!

    Double tipping trick!

    The food is not too expensive, but not particularly good or abundant. The ambience is very nice and on Wednesdays there is a milonga with live music. Be careful when paying the check: the tip is included in the original receipt, but when you get the credit card receipt, there is the usual tip space. One should always check things like this, but it is obviously done in faith, especially when most places do not include service for just two people.

    Great service and food

    The food is good and very well prepared. You can tell the chefs put a lot of thought while making this. Service was great, very attentive and nice waitress. Will definitely come back. The chips, shrimp entree, calamarie and tofu salad is delicious.

    Good Food

    Had to arrange a last minute family dinner in August and the restaurant was very accommodating. The food was good and because of the size of the party I understood why the food came out at varying moments. But I will say the food was tasty though. The only downside it was the middle of a heat wave and the AC had issues but overall the abidance is nice and the prices are good.

    Not recommended

    We went at the suggestion of the Public Theatre for a dinner break during the show Gatz. Everything was disappointing. The service was inept and the food was unappetizing.

    Maybe second time is a charm

    I went to Colors last summer and thought the food was good but not great. After shopping for lighting with a friend on bowery street we decided to check it out again last Saturday. The food was awesome! I had the shrimp with green goddess sauce it was absolutely incredible. For an entree I had the hanger steak. and it was melt in your mouth delicious. We're actually going back tomorrorw night for a friend's birthday. They told us they have a new chef and it definitely shows. They also have upped the ante with the cocktails, we ordered colors cocktails and after a few were feeling very, very good. Happy to see this a restaurant with such a good cause doing better. The place wasn't packed but it was definitely a buzz even the music was better or maybe that was in my head from the cocktails.

    Not Very Colorful

    I wanted to try Colors for months now, since I read that the worked had been from the displaced WTC restaurant and wanted to show my support. After theatre at the next-door Public last night, my friend and I tried it. Colors was a "drab" experience. First of all, there were only two other people in the restaurant which gave the dinner a very lonely feeling. Eerie, almost! Second, we were seated at a very small table, even though none of the other bigger tables were used the entire time we were there (no other customers). Service was amiss. They brought us the wrong drink order to start. It took a bit of a long time for them to take our food order, even though they were not at all busy. The food was not a good value, too pricy for the quality. My fish was actually cold. I wanted to show my support for the restaurant, but sorry to say I will probably not be back to Colors.
