Prune was a great choice for a quiet lunch. The place was a lot smaller than I anticipated but only added to the quaint ambiance. I ordered the Tuna Club which was pretty good, though it could have had more Tuna in it for $14. My friend has the Beef Brisket which was also very good. Overall, I would recommend trying it out.

Just finished a fabulous dinner. The sweetbreads and anchovies were great. But the winner was the branzino, equal to a meal in Italy. Ice cream sandwiches were not only cute but made really well. Only criticism is the acoustics - too noisy and it was only 7pm.

limited menu options and nothing for vegetarians. we waited more than half an hour for a salad, which came at the same time as the entrees. the quantity was very small and extremely overpriced. it's really not worth the money!

A recent trip to Prune was truly awful. The roasted bone marrow with parsley salad appetizer was so greasy that it was inedible. The lamb entree was equally fatty and without flavor. After waiting a half an hour between courses, the only high point to the meal was the wine recommended by the staff. With so much going against the meal, it was too disappointing to stay for dessert. Overall, the lack of culinary expertise and wait staff attention at Prune is so pronounced it's amazing that savvy New Yorkers support this marginal restaurant.

I've been eating at Prune since it opened and was just there last night with 4 friends. We spent about $60 ea. for cocktails, wine, and three courses, perfectly reasonable for the quality of everything we had. The food is as delicious as ever, the room is a little cramped, but service was great, and we had a perfectly wonderful time. If you can find food this reliably delicious in a perfectly quiet corner, cheaper, without ever waiting more than 15 minutes to be served, in NYC, then please share the name of the restaurant with us all.

Eat here for brunch if you like to wait an hour for a table, 10 minutes to get a menu and then another 45 minutes to get food. Almost all the high-priced items are a la carte, so you'll pay $20-$25 in order to approach full. My brother's hash browns were cold. My 4 spoons of $9 oatmeal was lukewarm and oh yeah, when I asked for a warm-up on coffee the waitress started to bring me a new full cup. Then I asked if there would be a charge & she pleasantly said, "oh yes, we don't do refills." Atmosphere is crowded and noisy. We could barely here. There are many great brunch places in New York. I see no reason for you to waste your hard earned money here.
