I can't wait for the Pig to re-open... I loved it as it was but I am sure it will be 10x as fun, tasty and just a great place to hang in the neighborhood... can't wait!

I'm always on the hunt for good food in a relaxed atmosphere. This place is a bullseye. If you show up later in the evening, you don't have to wait for a table. If you show up around dinner time, you can enjoy the delicious variety of beer (including homebrew) while you wait to enjoy the best bar fare I've ever encountered. I've been back over and over again. The service was exceptional. Chaos doesn't even hinder the staff's ability to accomodate a fools move. I dropped a plate of perfectly good fish on the floor. They brought me a new one in moments without the slightest hesitation. They rock like restaurant should...friendly and good.

Food was good. Ordered the halibut with pea puree, friend had burger. Still have a hard time spending $6 for a beer. Guess I will have to get used to it. Think the madness over this place will subside...

The food was different and tasty, a perfect pre-theatre snack.

I'm not sure I understand what everyone is whining about on this review page. I've now been to The Spotted Pig twice and twice I had a unique, well prepared, perfectly wine paired dinner. This restaurant is exactly what the neighborhood needs; a local hangout with top notch food incorporating seasonal ingredients and a manageable but sophisticated wine list too. I'm kind of glad some people had bad experiences....less time waiting in line for a table for me!

I am not one to usually write reviews, but after this experience I felt compelled to inform fellow New Yorkers. After reading the reviews on menupages, I should have known better and stayed away, however, I had heard good things about the SP, and decided to give it a try for brunch. Not only was the food poor, but the portions were tiny, the waiter had a hard time answering questions about he dishes, and was no where to be found, except at the end of the meal to sell me "the most well known and respected english breakfast tea". This "traditonal English tea" arrived in the most untraditional English way - in a sloppy cup, tea pot non existent. To top off this most unpleasant culinary experience, the bill came in at $120. Not a whole lot that shocks me in the city, but this managed to.

This place has been hyped up by friends and reviewers whose opinions I respect so I was 100% ready to fall in love. SP had won me over before I even walked in the door but the experience itself was underwhelming. The hostess and waitress were very nice and appropriately attentive, food (especially the gnudi) was very good, although the fact that they won't replace the shoe string fries (which item of food is absolutely useless) with mashed upon request is annoying. There just seemed to be something off about the place. It was very crowded and loud. I suppose I would try it again, but not without some serious pressure from those I'm to dine with.
