Great place to eat. Found this place through MenuPages and the food is great for the price. I usually go once a month or so and they never lack quality.

I used to frequent Neptune almost weekly back in the 1980s when it was called the KK Restaurant. For a struggling artist type living in what was still a diverse, boho, and as-yet ungentrified area, this place was a godsend. The hearty combo pierogi platters always saving the ones filled with sweet farmer's cheese for last as "dessert" were an astonishing bargain, as was the cold borscht and kasha varnishke. The service wasn't always spectacular, but it was filling, tasty, and hearty fare. After moving away from NYC, and of course a long absence, I returned a couple of times in the past three years, most recently in the summer of 2007. Good news: although now known as Neptune, the place hasn't changed a bit. And lingering in the garden is as delightful as ever. It almost doesn't matter that the service can be spotty.

The East Village used to be a great neighborhood, and Neptune is a reminder of that. As far as Ukranian/Polish joints in the neighborhood go, Neptune sets the standard for cold Ukranian Borscht and Vegetable soup. It also serves very generous salads -- for $9, with a healthy dose of chicken and lettuce piled 6" high. Neptune also offers the dreamiest garden patio in the neighborhood -- aside, maybe, from the restaurant next door called "Tree", where you'll pay 2.5 times as much for slightly better food. Also, at Neptune, you'll meet lots of those wonderful locals, which is the reason you moved to this neighborhood, right? We love Neptune, may he rule the East Village seas forever!

This was honestly my first 'bad' NYC restaurant experience after living here for nearly a year. The pierogies were tasteless. The potato pancakes had more oil than potato. The kielbasa was cold and bland (how is that even possible?!). The sour cream was lumpy. The apple sauce was sour. The service was not good. Our waitress was completely slow and unattentive (to all tables, not just ours). Even our glasses of water showed up 30 minutes late.

This weekend I went to Neptune for dinner Friday and Saturday. Friday I sat at the counter a with a friend nd Saturday I took a group of six to the restaurant. I was very impressed with the food - especially the kielbasa and pierogies. What made the experience most memorable was thegreat waistaff who not only recommended great polish beers but also shared great stories about their jobs. Highly Recommended ! d

This place has good and authentic Polish food (although it's not the best I've had in NYC Krolewskie Jadlo in Greenpoint is by far the best and worth the trip). But this place has an all Polish staff, great Polish combination platters, cheap Polish bear (that will cost you twice as much a few bars over in the east village at trendy bars). I LOVE the potato pancakes (also known as latke), the soups are amazing, and mostly everything is good. In the summer, the garden is fantastic, if the interior of the restaurant has a diner feel. Plus it's super cheap. I don't know how it used to be, but I just moved to NYC and have enjoyed my 4 visits to Neptune.
