Before I moved to the neighborhood I had heard about the Odeon. When my friend and I went for a walk around the new neighborhood we thought, "hey, why not?" The service was great. Our waitress was very attentive. She made some great recommendations on the wine and desserts. I had the Tuna Burger which was very good but nothing special. My friend had the roasted chicken and she said this was to die for. For dessert I recommend that everyone try the Strawberry Rhubarb Custard. It was by far the best part of the entire meal.

When I lived around the corner from the Odeon in the 90s, it was past its 80s glory days but was still a terrific place. The food was great, the staff was great, and you could grab a good meal or a quick bite with friends -- the frisee salad & the burger kept me alive back then! You didn't go broke, but you felt like you'd been out. Now, no. The service is still friendly, but the prices have gone way up while the quality and portions have gone down. I even had a conversation about it recently with the manager -- after the waitress charged us for every refill on the coffee!! -- and she acknowledged how chintzy the place has become. It's really sad. It's nothing but a cash cow for whoever the owner is, and is otherwise a sad reminder of what the neighborhood used to be. Please, someone, buy the Odeon away from whoever is ruining it and make it what it used to be! SOS -- Save Odeon's Soul!

When we discovered "Out of the Kitchen" - our favorite new neighborhood restaurant - we were heading to The Odeon. Well turnabout is fair play. We arrived at OOTK at 10 am on Sunday only to find it opened at 11. We headed to Odeon. Got a spot and went in. Let me start by saying that the reception and waitstaff could not have been friendlier or more accommodating. The food was pleasant , good, but nothing to write home about. Frissee aux lardons was very good, but the portion, at $12, was not enough to satisfy Brear Rabbit. Steak and eggs was good, again a small portion, but nothing more. Eggs Benedict was also good, but dineresque. Fresh orange juice - great - but $6 a glass. Coffee, very good. Breakfast - with tip -$120 - are you serious? Amities Gourmandes, Ally's Dad

I'm an old guy and I remember when this place was hopping. Now? It's beating a dead horse. Crud food, mediocre service, sky-high prices Pass.

somehow they charged me more for an absolut martini, 12.50, than a stoli one, 12.00. In any event, hello, you are not the hip spot once featured in 'bright lights, big city'. i paid these prices to share some kenny loggins with a few grandmas and 3 year olds? seriously, not having asked what the prices would be, i assumed they'd be similar to those on the drink menu, 10 or 11 for a cocktail.

Came to Odeon for Saturday brunch and it was pretty much completely ridiculous. Packed with the usual horde of Tribeca yuppie parents, but that wasn't the problem the problem was that a tuna burger was $19, that the $9 bowl of soup was a six ounce portion (think half a can of Campbell's), and that our waitress seemed to be the high priestess of the secret upsell: she offhandedly asked if we wanted "bread for the table," which turned out to be a $12 basket of muffins. When one of us ordered the steak tartare ($13 on the menu) she asked if we wanted a half or a full portion. Figuring it's the full portion listed on the menu, we went with that one, but no - turns out a full portion is a heck of a lot more expensive. A $12 frisee salad ($1 extra for the poached egg, which is like charging extra for the beef in a hamburger) was about four bites big. By the end, I was reluctant to ask for a refill on my (4oz) cup of coffee because I was sure it'd add another three bucks to the bill. I realize that these prices are par for the course at plenty of restaurants, and I'm happy to pay through the nose if it's a quailty product. But this was just not worth it. We felt suckerpunched, and won't be visiting again.

We had fond memories of this place going back into the 1980s. It's great that they're still in business, but the menu is just OK, though the interior is well-preserved and the service is fine. I guess that the late-night TriBeCa food scene has changed a lot over the years. We ordered the tuna burger and steak tartare, they were both passably prepared, nothing particular about them, but not bad. The long-serving waiter did suggest great places that he likes to go after workthese are the best suggestions!
