Once Upon a Tart
Posted by Assaf on 03/21/2012
I noticed this restaurant by mistake as i was walking on Soho. Its a nice restaurant with nice atmosphere. However, the food is not that great, I ordered a chicken sandwhich and they served it cold and it didnt taste that great. I also ordered an ice tea which had no taste at all. I asked for some sweetner liquid which of course they did not have so the owner told me to put normal sugar inside which of course cannot melt. When i asked to replace it she said no you already ordered. Pretty annoying considering the fact it would have been nice if she would have told me in advance that its not sweet at all. Anyways the food isnt that great and the service is just poor.

The chicken pot pie costs $9.25 including tax. It is too small a portion for a man to be satisfied for lunch. The pot pie was average, fairly bland. I Ordered it to go and it took about 8 minutes for them to heat it up but they didn't take long enough because when I sat down to eat at my office the pie was cold. Anybody who knows their pot pie knows its gotta be served piping hot. Sandwiches looked good MAYBE i'll go back to try one of those.

the brownies can be awesome sometimes, and just ok others. the cookies are flavorless and hard. bean salad was ok (but better the next day), soup was ok, scones are amazing (the ones without the jam in the middle), blueberry pecan is muffin amazing. in general, stuff seems overpriced, but welcome to soho. also, they make their sandwiches on these awesome-looking baguettes, but they don't actually sell the baguettes at the bakery. they should. service is generally friendlier in the to-go section.

My friend and I came in here to grab a quick bite to eat....place wasn't great but not horrible either. They only have a few chairs in the place so it just depends on timing if you want to have a chair to sit down and eat. I got their turkey sandwich w/ brie and cranberries in it. It was alright. My friend got a tart he enjoyed. Overall this place didn't make a huge impression on me but I would possibly come back...

In their cookbook, which I love - the owners brag about how sweet and charming their little Soho bakery is, that everything is fresh and their attention to detail is meticulous....that may have been the case when the book was published but things have slipped dramatically at once upon a tart.....the service is poor, the food lacks flavor and care, the coffee was old and burnt and my biscotti tasted days old....besides the company I was keeping, I cannot say one nice thing about my visit...I think I will stick to making my favorite things on the menu at home as I mentioned, the cookbook is amazing - but if you are expecting to see what is depicted in print, be prepared for a major disappointment.

Ever since flipping through this little bakery's cookbook, I have been waiting for the right moment to pounce on the establishment itself and devour its tasty interiors. I finally had the pleasure of doing so today, and although I did takeout, I was still charmed by the quaintness of the spaceness. I picked up a little tomato provencal tart as my dinner, and I was delightfully satisfied by the unusually gorgeous crust, amazing wealth of tomatoes, and perfectly seasoned custard beneath. I have been lured in by the worm of deliciousness, and will continue to chomp down in the future.

While walking around NY on mother's day with my daughters, we came upon Once Upon a Tart. The tarts were delicious. We look forward to returning again and again.
