    Great Find

    First of all, the location is unlike anywhere else in the city. Located on Commerce St, it has a very European feel to it - with which you no longer feel like you are in New York City. The food is delicious - I recommend the mushroom ravioli as an appetizer and the ragu with "odd things". Drink menu is unique with egg white and ginger cocktails. Commerce is a little pricey, but the atmosphere and food quality make it well worth it. Only issue is they overbook the tables (especially on the weekends) so you are likely to wait 30 minutes to an hour for your table. If you can bare to be patient and wait it out, you are guaranteed a great experience.

    2 suggestions, otherwise, fantastic

    Commerce is definitely worth the hype, but they really do need to stop rushing the meal. I understand that tables need to be turned, but there's a line between good business and blatant pushing. Food was divine, cocktails and wine as well. Our waiter was lovely and while he did come back several times to prod us into ordering, he was very good. Only suggestion is to add some cloth or accoustic tiles to cut back on the noise. It was just so so loud that it almost felt like reverb or cd skipping. Would go back.

    Subpar service; lame brunch

    After a few great dinners at Commerce, we decided to give Brunch a shot. Huge mistake. The service was horrendous, the kitchen was a disaster, and the food was mediocre, uninteresting and seriously overpriced.

    Perfect Place, Perfect Meal

    Commerce was one of the best meals I've had in NYC and have lived here for 5+ years. Went for a birthday dinner this past weekend and the food was remarkable. Atmosphere is cozy and warm. Try the pasta and duck rillettes appetizers and the entrees 'to share'. Read a lot of reviews about the dishes being too small but they were more than enough for normal sized people. Splitting dishes that were recommended for two actually fed three people. Definitely get the chocolate souffle for dessert. Can't wait to go back.

    Full Package

    Went here for dinner prior to seeing a play at Cherry Lane Theater that ended getting canceled. Commerce saved the night! The food was great. Wine was great. But all were outdone by the service. From the hostess to the bartender to the wait service, everyone was so pleasant, competent and made for such an enjoyable night. Absolutely going in my top 20 places in the city. I will be back and would highly recommend it. A little pricey but I've paid more for MUCH less in this city.

    More Crowd Control

    My friend and I dined at Commerce the other night after a play at the Cherry Lane Theatre. We had a 9 p.m. reservation but the play got out early, around 8:40 p.m. We registered at the desk, mentioning that we were a bit early. But they sat us immediately, which was nice. However, we were seated at a small table by the bar which would not have been a problem had the place not been so crowded. The the meal continued and so did the crowd at the bar area. It became an unpleasant experience in which to dine. I must say that the food was excellent, but at these prices, I feel that management should have done more to control the crowd at the bar, especially when people were seated nearby and paying good money for the meal. Other than that, I would go back to Commerce, but would insist on seating away from the bar area.

    not good

    Wow - what a fiasco. From the rushed service (we arrived at 8.15, we were given our bill at 9.10) to the hovering waiters and sommeliers begging us for orders, the dinner the 4 of us had could not have been worse. The filet my friend ordered was undercooked, the chicken I had was overcooked. The kitchen forgot one of our salads so 2 of us agreed to split, and then while eating a bus tried to clear our plates - while the fork was still in our hands! It was an incredibly bad experience from start to finish! And a shame because the space itself is so beautiful.
