What a wonderful meal! Thank you for the attention to detail. We had a great meal and good time with friends we hadn't seen in years. We will comeback!

was 3rd time at EV. 1st time was a knockout, but it was summer, we brought the dog and were able to score a seat outside. 2nd time with OOtowners and they would have been pleased with just about anything. 3rd time was a total drag. service blew. atmos was pretencious and my coffee was cold. and why is it so hard to find cream rather than milk for coffee? Basically a standard brunch spot- nothing wildly outrageous. just overpriced eggs benedict that are served over pieces of bacon, instead of Canadian Bacon... lame. Get the french toast...

I like some of the other reviewers have been dining at Extra Virgin for many years. Recently, we noticed that the quality and the flavor of the food was declining, but we held out hope that they would right the ship. Nothing prepared me for the disaster that was our last dining experience. After seating two parties that seemed to be her friends before us, even though we had put our name in first, the hostess/manager begrudgingly seated our party. I mentioned that I have been eating at Extra Virgin for years and I did not appreciate the flagrant favoritism. She disrespectfully replied that this has always been the seating policy and if I did not like it I dont have to come back...which I won't. The service was mediocre at best and the artichoke appetizer that had always been delicious was virtually inedible. The entrees came and were not much better. So long glory days of Extra Virgin

All three of our children (20-somethings) reside in NYC. Our favorite place to dine when visiting them is Extra Virgin, especially on a Sunday night. Love the meatballs. Ate there last night. Delicious!

We all had excellent meals (six of us) and great service. The only complaint is that it is very loud and a little too dark. I would definitely go back. They did their best to save our table while we waited for the rest of our party to arrive which we really appreciated.

My boyfriend and I come here at least two Sundays a month for brunch. This is by far, our favorite brunch restaurant. We always have the baked eggs. The eggs are done just right and sprinkled with a little bit of grated cheese, sizzling as it arrives to our table. We've also had the roasted chicken sandwich, and we were pleasantly surprised how moist was the chicken breast. The fries with cheese is also a great choice. And for our brunch "dessert" we have had the French toast. Everything has been tasty, and we have no complaints. I agree with other reviewers that the wait can be long, but it also depends how early you can get their for lunch. Right before noon on Sundays puts you in a good place. Of course, we always have a party of two, so the wait time has been less. Bon appetit!

We had fond memories of this restaurant from a couple years ago, so we decided to go for an early Valentine's dinner. What a mistake! All our dishes were mediocre at best. The artichoke appetizer had no taste, the sauce in the salmon dish tasted suspiciously like Campbell's tomato soup, and the pork was bone dry and actually hard to chew. When the waitress asked how everything was, I quietly and politely told her "pretty average." She looked at me like I was crazy and never came back. And the other reviews are right - most Greenwich Village restaurants are cramped, but Extra Virgin takes it to new extremes. We actually saw the staff get a party of two, who were already starting on their cocktails, switch tables because a table of six didn't like where they were sitting. And FYI, the restaurant doesn't keep their website updated, including the prices on their specialty drinks.
