    What a little treasure...

    I live around the corner and have become a great fan of the place. Great food and atmosphere... hard to find a place with better value. Only the service could be considerably better, depending on which waiter you get.

    Just like Disneyland

    If you want to impress someone, or just take them to a great New York Restaurant, this is it. Upon entering the restaurant, you find you are in a completely self contained world. The food is divine. Divine. And the winelist is both ecclectic and delightful. The desserts are absolutely incredible, and this is a great place to take your time and dine with someone special. The steak is fantastic, and everything comes out fresh, hot and delicious. Cheese plates. Cocktails. Devils on horseback. Artichoke dip. The blueberry creme bruelle is the most fantastic thing I have ever had in my entire life. Enjoy this perfect heaven.

    Make it our little secret...

    Impossibly delightful. A wonderous little place. Only for the truly deserving.

    Very good experience at Freeman's

    Visited on a recent Sunday night fairly early (6:30-7:00), not too busy (scattered empty small tables). The service was first rate: knowledgeable about the menu, attentive but not overbearing, with dishes pretty quick out of the kitchen. All 3 courses were interesting, tasty and at perfect temperature. A smoked pork chop was cooked as near to perfection as I've had as were the accompanying grits, creamy and with excellent textures, items that have given even very high quality kitchens difficulty, in my experience. Prices are reasonable for quality, probably more than reasonable. Ice creams are by Laborotorio Gelato. Yum.

    And then I created Freemans...

    First light, then all the creatures of the earth, and then this restaurant. And who says I didn't have a plan? This is one of the best dining experiences I have had in New York. and the price is right. Good service, attractive people, and wonderful hearty flavors. You won't be disappointed. And the wine was delicious.

    Charming place, crummy service

    We went for brunch after having had a good time here in the summer. However, the service was excrutiatingly slow today. It took at least 15 minutes to clear and set each table. After we were seated, at least three tables that sat and ordered after us got their food before us, even though we had ordered similar dishes. The table next to us was done by the time we got our food! Whilst we realised that it may not have been our server's fault--he was very nice overall--we felt he might have explained what was taking so long. The steak sandwich and the lamb sausages are good, but the artichoke dip is overseasoned and the skillet eggs with spinach overcooked. Freeman's strongest attribute is its appearance--charmingly rustic with ambient music.

    Great food poor service

    We loved the food here but the service made our experience unpleasant. Wine glasses were taken before they were even finished and the waitress was hustling us to order as much as humanly possible. Sure the food is good but it's really not worth the effort or the attitude.
