NOT worth your time. In search of the best burger nyc according to the show "best thing i ever ate" A friend offerd to give me a PR # to get a reservation. Upon calling, You'd think i was asking for her first born child. So once your past the bouncer and the recovering meth addict w/ the clipboard it's small and noisy place. Food is def. good, best burger, def. not. i'll never go back again and urge you to consider somewhere else to spend your $$$.

great, fun place to bring a date. a very new york, hip, cool environment but the food is sub par. cocktails were well made and bar is gorgeous. go once to check it out but you wont go back. also, clip board guy out front is really quite annoying and inhospitable.

Like Balthazar and Pastis, Minetta is the new hotspot. He does have a great formula, but this time I wasn't completely impressed. The staff was amazing, atmosphere is cozy and cramped with his signature all over it, but unfortunately our food just didn't live up. Given, we ordered quite ambitiously (foie gras terrine and pork belly) but the greasy fattiness of both dishes really turned us off. Cocktails were so-so but the bartender was hot so that made up for it. It was a lovely experience, just wish I had ordered something safer, like the black label burger. I'd definitely go back and eat at the bar (nice view).

Is Clipboard Guy really necessary? Is this what one goes to a restaurant for? And does Greenwich Village the last bastion of “real” need this kind of “faux” experience. Turning the authentic into the inauthentic seems to be a McNally specialty. This restaurant truly belongs in Times Square or Disney World rather than the heart of Greenwich Village.

I went to dinner here with a few girlfriends and we had so much fun! The whole atmosphere was really cool - very old school. All the food we ordered was delicious - we had the stuffed calamari, the goat cheese salad, the steak frites, the chicken, the classic burger and the cod special. Apparently, the classic burger is better than the black label burger (or so we've heard). And the cocktails were all so interesting! Although this is kind of a see and be seen place, it's not overly snobby or obnoxious. Just another fantastic restaurant.

I went there because after reading the New York Times review I had to try what they considered to be one of if not the best steakhouse in New York. Boy, did they get that wrong. I know the Times is cutting back but little did I know they were taking bribes too. Yes, the place is very cool with a great vibe and friendly, good service but the food was only good to very good. And by that I mean that the salads, especially the lobster salad was very good but the steaks and sides were just good. Honestly, this is NY and there are plenty of great steakkhouses in the city so I'm not sure where all the fuss was coming from. Desserts were very good but I would try the fish next time.

There is someone standing outside with a clipboard like this is a club - really enough said. Food is very good and you get what you pay for, but the service and atmosphere reek of people hoping to impress, or impressed with themselves.
