I left Tipsy tipsy with a foodie buzz.. the stuff we tried was downright delicious. Nothing overwrought, not trying to hard, just ample portions of undeniable yumminess. The mushroom tart app. had a perfect ratio of 'shrooms to soft, creamy mild cheese and just coddled by the biscuity tart crust. The kale and spinach salad (if a bit heavy on the cherries & croutons) was marvelous (add a dash of salt). Scallops are perfectly cooked, nestled with more of those decadent mushrooms and sparked with Meyer lemon.. gorgeous. Equally good was an untraditional take on catfish, bringing that fish out of breaded-and-fried or blackened predictability with a lovely crunch of light breading and herbiness. The Apple pie for Two could actually be for three or four, and although I like a little more ooze to my filling, the two of us cleaned it up. Love the Tipsy.

Two of us had a delicious dinner here despite tepid/bad reviews. We both started with the spinach & kale salad which was was delicious. I had the pork chop which was large enough to have half for dinner last night and half for lunch today and my friend had the trout which he enjoyed. We shared the namesake Tipsy Parson for dessert which is reason alone to go! Service and decor were both lovely.

This is the perfect neighborhood NYC restaurant experience. Food is an incredible, stick to your ribs, modern Southern bonanza that you never want to end. The service is friendly and unpretentious. The drinks are creative. I love this restaurant and can't wait to keep going back!

I really wanted to like this so much... The decor is super, and I'd hoped it would be a great new local place for me. Service was nice, crowd was nice, but the food was just ho-hum and my scrambled eggs with fried oysters was a stingy size. For 16 bucks, I expect more than what looked like an egg-and-a-half with two oysters on top.

The deviled eggs and hush puppies were nothing special. If I indulge, I want it to be GOOD! What really annoyed me is that their phone is messed up, so I repeatedly got hung up on, and on top of that they were rude! Also for parties 6 and over there is a minimum of 65 dollars per person. Um... NO!

The food was fantastic, just the portion size was a little small. The clientele is very cute and the general manager is hot! This was Jim's first time to Tipsy Parson and we will definitely be back.

Really wanted to like this place, as I've been craving southern comfort food after a trip down to South Carolina in the fall. Unfortunately, brunch = not so much. The biscuit I had was undercooked, it took forever to get entrees, and the grits in my shrimp-and-grits were lukewarm. The flavors were there, but the staff needs to work on its timing or learn how to use the over. On the upside, it was a really pleasant environment in which to pass two hours on a freezing January weekend.
