The Fat Radish

I have to say I really loved this place. It was crowded and we didn't have a reservation. No attitude, they found us a table. Staff was friendly and helpful. Great glass of wine, great celery root pot pie! Can't wait to go back.

Great ambience, great food, great service. Our server was super attentive and noticed small things right away, like the table being wobbly and the candle burning out, which really weren't even that bothersome enough for us to say anything, but he gets extra points for noticing and fixing without us having to! The food was excellent. We had the duck terrine, razor clams with english peas, the heritage pork, and chocolate cake w/ creme fraiche for dessert. The cake was not too sweet and didn't feel so indulgent, which was nice. Everything was cooked perfectly and delicious. Healthy, clean, tasty food.

Came here for dinner on a Wed night...service was great. The apple cocktail tastes like apple cider. For apps, we got the heirloom carrot salad with kale (not sure what seasoning/sauce they use to flavor the kale but wow, so flavorful and delicious, all blended very well together), beet crumble (very good) and duck rillette terrine (the bread is well seasoned...not sure what olive oil they drizzle over it but so flavorful). The cheeseburger is delicious, cooked just right and full of flavor! My friend got the chicken which was pretty moist. We wanted dessert but were so stuffed...would definitely recommend and frequent again. Love the ambiance of the restaurant!

This restaurant had extremely poor service that ruined the entire experience for us. We had been so excited to come here, waiting three weeks for a reservation. We got in and right away it felt like our waitress was mocking us when we wanted to switch away from one really uncomfortable table. We felt very ignored, and were not brought anything in a timely manner (the people who arrived about a half hour after us left well before we did, and my Manhattan was warm by the time it made it to me). Then, right after we started our main dishes, our waitress came over to say that since it was a "very dead" night, she was going to take off. Our question...if it is such a dead night, why is the service so bad? (Nearly every table in the place was full.) When you have customers out on a Thursday night for a fancy meal, why are you going to tell them that they are part of anything less than the best night of their lives? And why, at such an expensive restaurant, should we be subject to a change in wait staff, even though it was not yet 9 pm? We all know where this is going--the person who was supposed to be covering for her did not come over once, in over thirty minutes, until we finally flagged him down for the bill. We were incredibly disappointed by this place.

At first glance this place seems as though it would fall into your typical downtown trendy hang out, but try the food and you will have forgotten all about the prior. Great people. Great food. The owners are always there and very friendly which goes to show they are passionate about what they are doing. Can't wait to go back. I recommend the Celery Root Pot Pie and Beet Crumble. To Die for.

Great place , busy and fun...The servers are knowledgable and friendly.. maybe a little pricey for the area ... but this is not your typical LES place ... for the style and quality of food ... this is an affordable spot .... very good looking crowd .... but not pretentious at all ... def check it out ....
