I came here last night I was surprised it was so crowded on a Monday night but It was only a 20min so I waited. I was seated in exactly 20 min. The waitress was nice but she did not come to the table ofte, just once. The food was good, overall this is a very nice place the atmosphere was very cool very trendy. Try the RED VELVET!

Went to Penelope today for brunch and all I can say is YUM. I got the pumpkin waffles and they were beyond delicious. The pumpkin butter was an excellent accompaniment. My friend got the eggs with salmon and she also really enjoyed it. Very good food for a very reasonable price

The food at Penelope is absolutely delicious! I go with my friends at least once a week. The Brunch is one of the best in the city, especially the Penny Egg sandwich. At night, the fish & chips is to die for! So crispy!! The environment is perfect for relxing with friends. Dimmly lit with windows open and the perfect music in the background- The Beatles, Led Zepplin etc. It's wonderful! I especially recommend Penelope on a rainy afternoon. The atmosphere is perfect and feels great coupled with a Belini or Champagne with brunch. Oh, and don't forget dessert. The best red velvet cake in the city- hands down. I am a true advocate for this place.

We stayed in NY for 9 days and luckily found this restaurant. The food is really good, the staff very friendly and the restaurant is cozy. The only drawback are the noise and fries for breakfast (not a healthy option). Compared to other restaurants in NY this is a gem!

The hummus plate is really too big for one person! I tried to do it but just couldn't. Went Thursday afternoon and the place was packed. Good ceiling fans kept it cool inside. Great wine selection and even had a small summer cocktail list. Hummus plate really was delicious - it was just really meant for sharing. It comes out with sliced apples and a lot of bread.

Went there with four other people, had subpar food (I had the veggie "where the hell did all the flavor go" burger). Other guests had the "Best part of my French Toast is the Fruit" order. Why wait an hour to get a seat at a place that serves nothing particularly original, and doesn't even do classics very well? The ambience is great, creating a sense of intimacy with other diners despite the tightness of the space. The waiter was rude at points, disturbed that one guest returned an undercooked burger. Only suggestion, don't expect much and just go to Brazil Coffee House across the street to wait out the hour wait.

Charming restaurant located in the heart of Murray Hill. Perfect for casual dates, dinner with a friend or even takeout. I would not recommend for big groups as the restaurant is pretty small. If you want to go for weekend brunch expect a long line and wait but during the week you can usually walk right in. My favorites include the veggie burger, chicken currie salad, chicken meatball sandwich and of course the spinach and artichoke dip. My roommates and I order takeout from here usually a couple times a week. All in all, you can't go wrong at Penelope, it's affordable, charming and yummy!
