Having been a regular at their West Village store I am stunned at the two reviews below, The food is extra special. Natural ingredients and pure recipes make the Hamburger, Mac and Cheese and salads some of the most satisfying in New York. The cheeseburger comes with slabs of fresh cheese on top and not your regs. Gouda, fresh mozzarella etc. The burger has melted every tongue that I have brought it in contact with. Their market plates with fresh veggies and options are amazing. As are the salads and their attendant dressings. I can't comment on the service as I order out. It always arrives with a smile although there are errors...so I am going to concur. It would be sad not to sample this restaurants offerings. And to complain that this doesn't belong in the East Village? Time to wake up and walk around. Apartments aren't $800 anymore either.

I have had only good experiences at this restaurant which fits into the East Village neighborhood just fine. The turkey burgers and salads are high quality and are always fresh. I've lived here forever and can still be grateful for quality where I find it.

This place belongs in the West Village - where it makes sense. The East Village should try to hold on to its unique restaurants - this one is not unique - as satisfying as it may be - it sadly replaced an unpretentious Mexican place run by a solid Mexican family who knew what they were doing - but got priced out of the neighborhood (they moved to BK). Anyway, since the E. Village is now being overrun by people with mid-American sensibilities (which is why the mac-n-cheese is such a hit) then I guess it will make it there, but I'd prefer to see something on that corner with a bit more flavor and less cliched "comfort" food. That said, the food we had was fine - but nothing to rave about - and worthy of recommendation for people who crave "comfort" but don't know how to boil some elbow macaroni and make a cheese sauce. The service (as so many people here have pointed out) is just plain bad. We had to get up from our table and approach THEM to get us a check - you'd think that with such a small space they could glance over once in a while.

The food is decent, and its a convinient neighborhood spot. Unfortunately the management staff do not have customer service skills and completely rude. I have ordered food from this place before but i refuse to support rude behavior.

This place was great. I just got back from a Sunday dinner with a couple of friends and decided this place was worth my first food review in the city. Seriously, crab cakes, baked mac and cheese with bacon and gouda cheese and a steak sandwich....pupupleaaaseee! With a couple of tasty alcoholic beverages to wash it down and it hit the spot tonight. This is the second time I have been here and I have been impressed both times. The place definitely has a laid back, chill atmosphere and the staff is friendly. I will be going back but next time for a little brizzunch because I have heard that it is one of the best in the city. I'll be the judge of that but I like their odds so far!

I've been a fan of Westville for a while. Their food is always fresh and delicious, and the portions are satisfying.
