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.

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.

I was told about freemans by a friend, I went with my father and we had a meal that was all around amazing. The feeling you get when you are eating there is out of this world. The alley is slightly hard to find but it is well worth it.

I like walking down nyc alleys - especially when a place like this is at the end. The wait wasn't as terrible as I was expecting (about 45 minutes), and there was a spot at the bar (charming and talented bartender). Once we were seated for dinner, the artichoke dip was a guilty pleasure and the poached chicken very tasty and comforting. The wine list was reasonable (as were the entree prices) so the overall pricetag for dinner is within the realm of those who work for a living. The best thing about this place was that it did such a good job of removing reality so that it was truly a dining experience.
