Had brunch here with 3 others this past weekend and was pleasantly surprised after some of their reviews we read....my only 2 gripes were as follow: 2 out of 4 of us were there and they would not seat us - mildly annoying. Second, they had a completely different menu in the restaurant as compared to their website.. Our waitress was knowledgeable and kind and the food was great. Also, a pitcher of their punch for 28 dollars provided 4 of us with plenty to drink during brunch...all in all a good time. I'd go back!

This place came highly recommended so we went with enthusiasm. First of all the noise level is out of hand -- hard to hear yourself and hard for the waiter to hear you. The apps were okay -- arugula and beet salad and artichoke tatin. The entrees were really all mediocre -- tastless, boring, uninspired and bland. Why the place was packed was beyond me. we'll never go back and maybe as the menu changes often, the next choices will be good but halibut on boiled potatoes, an ordinary burger with way too smoked bacon, and fries that were kind of dry and limp, nothing worth making the trip. The staff is sweet though and try hard. The atmosphere needs some major sound insulation. Try eating outside if you're going to go.

you've gotta respect restaurant promos. 5-7 = HAPPY HOUR = bar only. if a venue offers promotions at certain areas, you should respect it and take advantage where it's offered. end of story :)

Five Points was written up as having "$5 Martinis and $2 Oysters Everyday 5-7", so i go with 3 other people to check it out thinking it is a great deal.. my brother and his girlfriend got there before us and sat at the bar and ordered a drink, the bartender was going to charge them full price until i mentioned the $5 deal, and he rolled his eyes and gave us attitude as he poured me my drink. We then sat down at the table for dinner and try to order another drink and the waiter said it was $12!! the promotion is only at the bar! we had to pay full price because we sat down at a table, he also said the oysters served at the bar were "different" then the ones served in the restaraunt (prob from the hudson river). I pleaded with the waiter to try and give us the discount telling him it WASN'T advertised as being only at the bar and was a main reason we chose to go (plus the restaratunt was EMPTY). Why should we have to pay full price if it was advertised differently? The waiter (who was the best part of the experience, really great guy who tried to help us out) tried to talk the bartender into giving us the deal at the table, and the bartender refused! I then go up to the bar to try and order the drink, the bartender insulted me and told me i can't bring the drink to the table and that it is only a bar deal, and tells me to speak to the manager as it was his rule. There are so many restaraunts in NYC that have recession specials and have much better food then this place, do they really have the nerve to be so rude to customers who are willing to spend a lot of money on food that is overpriced and not that great? Did they really need for us to pay the $7 extra for a martini and $1 extra for the oysters just because we sat down to have dinner? My advice is don't advertise a "deal" to draw people in to the restaraunt if you can't follow through with it, and if you meant to say "only at bar" you should still honor what you advertise and not insult and anger customers who are paying good money to eat your food. The only reason we even stayed was because the waiter was so apologetic and gave us a "free" drink (the bartender messed up my boyfriends order).

I went here as part of a group of 6, mostly family members. The wait staff was nice, but slightly rough around the edges. I had the shrimp fritters as an ap, they were good, but the oil seemed slightly old and the sauce was, well too mayoey. I had the scallop entrée, and had they not been overcooked, they would’ve been excellent. Everyone else seemed to like their dishes, the majority of the plates were empty by the end of the main. For dessert we shared espresso ice cream and a blood orange pana cotta. The espresso ice cream was very good, the pana cotta on the other hand was a bit too sweet and served warmer, than in my opinion, it should’ve been. I think that it was made with some of the blood orange sauce/flavoring mixed in, which made the presentation weaker as well. The atmosphere is nice, and I have been here a few times during the day for a bloody-marys, which are good, buts its been about a year since I have stopped in during the day. Overall it’s an ok place, but didn’t seem worth the price to me, but many things in the area are over priced…

Loved it!! We had reservations for 12:00 pm on a Sunday and where seated promptly. Although the restaurant had a long waiting line for people to be seated, we were never rushed. Food was great and so was the service...

It's a surprise because of the ambience and noise level. A pretty space and the tables aren't crowded. The noise level comes close to quiet, allowing conversation at very comfortable levels. Food was quite good, especially the shrimp appetizer. They still cook the pork a little more than necessary, but the dish is still a winner. Service is pleasant and not hovering.. Will definitely return.
