The service was more than good, but it is a small tight space. The food was above average, but it is not easily reached by subway. But, the neighborhood is fascinating. Tahe a Food Tour of Greenwich Village first/Food of NY. and return for

We came here because heard that the burger was outstanding and it did not disappoint! The bun was soft, the meat juicy, just the right amount of cheese. I honestly can't stop thinking about it. The staff was EXTREMELY friendly and were

This is not some enormous, glamorama, fancypants food cavern with a slick-as-sh-- bar scene and sex appeal. It's a cozy spot with delicious food from start to finish and the service ain't too shabby either.

Meatball sliders blah blah

Not that the food was bad. It was pretty decent. But I wasn't sure what is so special about it. Is it because it's so small and it's hard to get a reservation? I mean... scarcity...

This is one of the best restaurants in NYC hands down. Everything about this restaurant deserves 5 stars. You will not be disappointed if you choose to try Little Owl, its worth the reservation wait list.

Hmmm...been 3 times now and have to admit...I don't see what all of the fuss is about. But then I felt that way about Market Table and Cookshop, too. The food is fine, can be inventive but very inconsistent and the seating situation is truly appalling. I know there are many complaints about this. Okay, you have a small restaurant but c;mon. You know its limitations by now. You don't make people with reservations wait from 45 minutes to and hour and 15 (last time we went.)

what can i say? Food is very well plated, service is very professional, and the way eveything is set up in the place is just beautiful. I've been here a couple times now and i have not yet been disappointed. Also had a birthday here and it was great. They even had a little candle for me heh heh. Great food, great service, cant wait to go back!

We've always wanted to eat here but reservations are hard to get. So on a Tuesday nite we decided to stop by at 7pm and try to get lucky. The host was so nice and said he'd probably have something in an hour so we went to EO for a drink and 25 mins later he called us for a table at 7:45! The food is incredible. We had the sliders appetizer (very tasty) and my bf & I both got the lamb. I've only eaten lamb one other time (not a big fan) but the lamb t-bones were so delicious, wonderfully seasoned. Also came with goat cheese gnocchi and an onion watercress salad. We ate every bite! Service was very attentive, our wine glasses were never empty. The chocolate cake w/espresso gelato was a good ending to the meal. We will definitely go back. One of the best meals I've had in a long time plus friendly service. This restaurant is a delight!

The porkchop is so amazing that it's not worth dying for, it's worth living for. It was seasoned to perfection and incredibly moist. I can't stop thinking about it...Service was wonderful and we had a great half bottle that seemed fairly reasonably priced. I would go back in a heartbeat but I can't manage to get a reservation.

I didn?t see any of the aloofness that a few have cited in their reviews, though we did see many people turned away while we were eating. (My full review at: AmericanMadness dot com). The place is small! One has to expect that there?s only so much that can be done to seat everyone and in a timely fashion. Our table (for 6) took 30 minutes to open, which was downright reasonable. And we stayed for maybe twenty minutes after everyone else had left and the place had closed for brunch and no one in management made a peep! The food has been described by angry critics as nothing special. I?ll say this: what I ate was damned good. The meatball sliders were quite tasty. I thought the veal slider, in particular, was extremely good. One friend ordered the poached eggs (fontina sausage buns, braised greens and hollandaise), and reports that the buns did not taste particularly like sausage, but overall he enjoyed the dish. Another friend ordered the white omelet and said it was unexceptional, but that it had clearly been whipped up in a most labor-intensive way. Two others ordered the burger but both had it well done. Even well done, the burger was very good. I think at medium rare it would be impressive. The spiced fries, included with the burger platter, are excellent. The coffee was hot, tasty and mugs were kept full. Orange juice ($4) was freshly squeezed. I ordered an African Rooibos tea (from MightyLeaf) and it was tasty. Go early. More than half of the side dishes were gone by 1:30pm, including the cheddar grits, which I was excited to try, and the sausages. We did get some Brussels Sprout Home Fries (home fries and Brussels sprouts presented together, not melded together) and they were perfectly cooked, which is to say crunchy and not underdone. One cute final touch: the check comes bookmarked in a weathered paperback book. In our case, this was Around the World in 80 Days.

came here tonight for an anniv. dinner w/ my bf thx to yelp. I couldn?t get reservations but was told they reserved tables for walk in's so we decided to try our luck. got here at about 6pm on a Fri. and didn?t have to wait at all. the place was so cute, nice and cozy, just perfect. I was tempted to get the lobster soup but chose the meatball sliders instead, yummy. Stan got the scallops which were delicious. I did taste the anchovy which I didn?t care for but it didn?t overpower the dish. we also tried the oysters from nova Scotia they had this evening which was heaven, we should?ve got more. for entree I got the crispy chicken and he got the lamb - everything was yummy, I cant complain, and that?s hard for me :-) unfortunately we got so full not only could we not finish our entree, but no room for dessert :-( damn, and I really wanted to try the pear crisp. I?ll be back. oh yea, and the service was very good. the busboy was on point and the food came out very fast

The restaurant is tiny, but cozy, the wait staff was great, though I did have to ask for bread.

The crispy artichoke came, and I swear, I thought it was a potato masquerading as an artichoke. Yes, it was the artichoke heart, and a large one, but at $12, I expected something which didn't taste like potato.

The gravy meatball sliders at $10, were a steal compared to the artichoke - note 1 artichoke heart. This I do recommend, three large meat ball sliders, flavorful, and on buns not too crispy, but enough to give it some texture.

The pork chop- the raved pork chop is nothing special, though it is large. Ours was a bit dry I felt, and seasoned as I would a steak almost, lots of salt and pepper. The sauce was delicious, the saving grace of the dish, as I was able to dip the pork chop into the sauce, but shouldn't the pork chop hold its own without being so dry I needed to dip it? Wild dandelions were cooked well, just not my thing, but the butter beans felt out of place.

The branzini, I probably should've asked how it was cooked. Pan fried, I believe, with thyme, garlic, lemons, and other herbs stuff in it. One bite, and I had garlic in my mouth. An entire garlic. It was dark in the corner we were at, and that probably should've hinted to me I shouldn't have gotten a dish which required me to look and figure out which parts to eat.

The vegetarian option is apparently whatever they have in the kitchen. Very lacking, lots of squash and dandelions, very disappointed.

Obviously nothing I wrote makes this place un-edible, just pointing out that there's so much hype to this little place when there shouldn't. Perhaps my taste buds aren't as refined as everyone that love this place, perhaps the chef had an off night. Whatever it is, this place does not deserve the high rating its getting.

Went to The Little Owl last night (Saturday) with a party of 3 after reading great review in a notable food magazine. Showed up as a walk-in at around 9:15 and it was completely packed, hour and a half wait. They ended up getting me a table within an hour. The restaurant is small, and the seating is somewhat tight but never uncomfortable. I read some previous reviewers who claimed terrible service, however our server was very nice and very attentive. Now, the food. My company both ordered the New York Steak, which was not adventurous in the least, but still perfectly cooked and excellent. I had the broiled Halibut, which was one of the top 3 pieces of fish I have had... ever. I also had the Meatball Sliders appetizer which had great flavor and is a must-order if you go. I would have given it 5 stars, but consistency is part of my criteria, so I will have to go back and eat again (which I will) for them to earn the last star. It should also be noted that for this quality of food the prices are not only reasonable, but a great value. Very hard to find a place (especially in Manhattan) that lives up to the critical hype and stays in this price bracket. Highly recommended and worth your wait.

Little Owl is over-rated and average at best. The waiters were snobby and rude when I was there (for my birthday, no less). We were seated late after being told to go have a drink elsewhere while they got our table ready, they were out of the first three things we ordered, we weren't offered dessert --keep in mind, it was my birthday!!!! even after they called us three times to confirm the reservation, and each time they mentioned a special dessert), we were rushed through our entire meal (appetizers came before our wine & the kitchen staff was peering out the window at us to see when we'd finish our next course), and the food was incredibly salty - we woke up with that horrible dehydrated feeling in the middle of the night. When we mentioned the poor service to one of the waiters, she responded, "Well, your waitress is downstairs right now," offering no sympathy to us whatsoever. I would NEVER recommend this place. And this was all on Sunday, no less - not exactly the busiest day of the week. Sad.

We went to Little Owl late Saturday night. It's very charming and romantic. The service was amazing. The meatball sliders were phenomenal.! The scallop appetizer arrived on a hearts of palm citrus salad. While the scallops were delicious, it would have worked better on a different base. It was nice of the waitress to bring it to us on 2 separate plates. We shared the MASSIVE pork chop. It is probably the best thing that's ever been done to a pork chop. Absolutely delicious. We wanted to try the warm chocolate cake with espresso ice cream but they had just run out (it was past midnight) and our server very graciously brought us a trio of gelato on the house. It was fantastic. We loved the restaurant, fabulous service, and even if it had sucked, I'd still go back for those addictive sliders!

Cons: tiny space, hard to get a reservation

I really like this place, but there is room for improvement.

Food: The pork chop and cod are fantastic. I'm partial to both, but not easily impressed by either at most places. Crispy chicken is a nicely refined version of fried chicken, lovely flavor and moist inside. Other main dishes (we've had most all of them between a group of us) are good but nothing to write home about, which I hope can change based on the three I've mentioned. In appetizers, the duck salad and scallops are superior. I noticed they've changed the scallop dish from spinach and lobster risotto into a salad, not nearly as good. Bring back the risotto bed!

Mechanics: Service and food have suffered slightly since opening. Expect to wait an hour without a reservation unless you go at opening. Gabriel, the host, is friendly, but cocky. The waitresses try to be friendly but are ultimately aloof. Brunch is overpriced. Also it's a little too crowded for comfort. I would go more often if the wait staff was more genuine, invention was consistent across the menu (the items I didn't mention were just a bit unmemorable), and it was less crowded. They try to sqeeze too many at the bar and in winter the entryway is claustrophobic. Once you're seated at a table it's okay, though.

I recently went to the Little Owl for the third time, and as the saying goes, "third times a charm!" and was it ever! Beginning with the moment I walked into the front door, the host greeted me like he had known me forever. He took our coats (like he does every time) and warmly welcomed us in. The tiny place was already fully seated when we arrived but he assured me that we would be the next party seated. He then proceeded to take a moment to chat us up actually saying that he remembered meeting me before and then offering to get us some drinks at the bar. True to his word we were seated shortly thereafter. Once we were seated we were promptly met by our server whose name has currently left my mind, but I can say that she was very knowledgeable about the menu and always on top of updating our silverware, wiping our table of crumbs, and making sure that we never went thirsty. Now for the meal!! If I had to use only 3 words to describe the past 3 visits worth of food, they would be: TO DIE FOR. The food is seriously hands down delicious. Thus far, I have tried a number of different items but for the sake of the pattern I have going on, I will stick with my top 3. Appetizer: the duck over arugala with sliced almonds. This is seriously the last place I will ever eat duck again and I have ordered this as my appetizer every single time, (letting my friends do the experimenting with the other apps!) Entree: lamb shank=HUGE, juicy, and delicious, what more could you want? Dessert: the pear crisp with a gelato that is indescribable in both words and in taste!!! Overall, I had, yet again, a most amazing experience at the Little Owl. The atmosphere is always elegant yet cozy and welcoming with great background music. The chef is genius, service is impeccable, host that truly welcomes you to his home. Go as fast as you can but when you get there, remember, it's well worth the wait!

The host GABRIEL is smug and obnoxious. While the scene is quaint and cozy, i found the host to be condescending and rude. His smarmy demeanor throughout our meal was unpleasant and distracting. While the food was decent, i wouldn't never return due to the pretentious treatment at the door.

Went there w/my in-laws an husband. My in-laws have been a bunch of times and have always loved it. Must admit, we were not disappointed. The bibb lettuce salad w/beets and sunflower seeds was fresh, nutty and excellent. And the cod w/the celery root was buttery, perfectly cooked and very tasty. My husband had the crispy chicken and the in-laws had the pork chop. Everyone was very happy.

I also have to second the review here that says try the raspberry donut dessert - the beignets. They were an excellent way to end the meal. And I say this from the standpoint of someone who almost never eats dessert - if anything I tend to drink it, and finish w/a port or something.

Oh, and the server and the hostess were charming. None of the nastiness reported by other reviewers here. I would definitely go again.

Went there w/my in-laws an husband. My in-laws have been a bunch of times and have always loved it. Must admit, we were not disappointed. The bibb lettuce salad w/beets and sunflower seeds was fresh, nutty and excellent. And the cod w/the celery root was buttery, perfectly cooked and very tasty. My husband had the crispy chicken and the in-laws had the pork chop. Everyone was very happy.

I also have to second the review here that says try the raspberry donut dessert - the beignets. They were an excellent way to end the meal. And I say this from the standpoint of someone who almost never eats dessert - if anything I tend to drink it, and finish w/a port or something.

Oh, and the server and the hostess were charming. None of the nastiness reported by other reviewers here. I would definitely go again.

Pros: All food - incl. dessert, v. good service

Cons: Bathroom is small and cold, but that's a small quibble

went there on last sunday night. loved everything about this place. even though i had to wait about an hour for our table, it was well worth the wait. The restaurant is intimate, romantic and i love the "open kitchen" The food was great, and the service seemed a tad rushed but overall very good. You must try the raspberry donut dessert is amazing...

What a little gem. The service was terrific, the food delish, and presentation very appealing, the atmosphere very comfortable and well thought out. A little cramped though. The restaurant is very small with very few tables. But, I think that helps every dish get the extra attention it deserves. The chef doesn't look stressed out, in fact, I caught him boogying to a little music in the open kitchen. Glad to see he's enjoying himself. As for the food, I had the crabcake (yum), crispy chicken (better than anything I could ever make at home) and brussel sprouts (so so so good). My husband had the meatball sliders (so recommended...every bite is great) and the pork chop (which is highly recommended, but looked a little dry and my husband said mine are better). I definitely liked the place much better than my husband did, but overall though, I'd go back here again and again if I could just get a reservation.

I had a great dinner at little O. I sat by miself at the bar,
the food is obviosly cared for, the meatballs sliders are pristine little scrumptuos trio of simple comfort food
the bread must be key ingredient i believe
the grilled scallops were tender sweet and well seasoned, even the hearts of palm managed to fit very well in it.I liked how they presented them in the same rectangular plate.The wine selection is very well and carefully chosen i had a 03 Burgundy in the 1/2 btl that was beyond pretty.
I coudn't help it but become taken by the good vibe of the place, talked to the rest of the bar and made friends over the obvious good food, the room is very small, the service is great yet not professional or upselling, i liked to exhange words with the owner Joey, and when i told him i woud love to see him behind the kitchen He seemed very calm and confortable in telling me how much he trusted his staff of many years of elbow to elbow experience.There you go NYorkers not evrything is what it seems sure you can tell if tastes good , i'll certainly be back for main courses and desserts.

Pros: a true small ny restaurant experience with a pro in the kitchen

Cons: bumps and clutter....ohhhh no cons

We were there on a Monday, but this is no excuse for how awful this experience was. The waitress seemed friendly, helpful and accommodating, although the hostess kept reminding people that they had to finish their meals in order for tables to become available. People were actually told how long they could stay there. The wine list is beyond markup, with many unsuitable selections that don't match the food well, especially the dessert wines (I work in the wine business). My friend and I LOVED the scrumptious meatball sliders, however we both ordered the roast snapper and a side of brussels sprouts. The snapper somehow managed to be both overcooked and raw at the same time, stringy and hard to cut. Served on runny, tasteless mashed potatoes. The only detectable flavoring seemed to be salt. The sprouts were tough and overly sweet. Out of sheer curiosity at whether or not they would ruin it, and because were were early for our play, we stayed for dessert. The fruit cobbler was all flour and sugar. Then we watched in horror as the hostess made the next table get up in the middle of their meal and move for more high profile guests. For these outrages, for just 2 of us, we shelled out over $115 for the meal, 1 drink each and 1 dessert wine. Avoid at all costs, for cost it will be.

Pros: meatball sliders

Cons: absolutely everything else

The restaurant is cute, but that is all I can say for it. It suffers from a marked lack of professionalism. However, it's not from lack of trying -- in fact, they are trying too hard to be an "it" restaurant and it comes off as forced. Rude, distant service on every level, and inconsistent meals add to the unpleasantness of the experience.

Living in the WV, I've been to almost every restaurant in the neighborhood. Unfortunately, most of them are exactly the same. Same menu, same prices, closely packed tables. The Little Owl is no exception. The food was good enough - the side was the best part. We were very disappointed in the desserts, though. A cute place, but like almost every other in the area.

Came here on a Friday night with my parents (in from out of town) and we had an amazing experience--besides having to wait for 45 mins even though we had a reservation. It could have been due to the presence of a few celebs who simply sat for far too long after finishing. Once we sat, though, it was a great experience. They brought out a complimentary appetizer, and we had great service. I HIGHLY recommend the pork and the meatball sliders, but everything at our table was incredible. The atmosphere was great, light and airy, but cozy and comfortable--and not too noisy, which the parents appreciated. This place is great.

I went to the Little Owl last night and was generally impressed. Scallop apetizer was terrific - cooked perfectly, with a touch of salt, pepper and olive oil. Halibut was a bit overcooked but still good. Very reasonable wine list.

Nice, cozy room, great food and bottom line, soul. There's a genuine feeling that they care about food and providing a good dining experience. Sometimes tiny joints like this can be precious, but this place is a welcome addition to the West Village.

I really wanted to like this restaurant, in part because the interior is so appealing. But I don't think I'll be going back. The first time I tried to eat there, I did not have a reservation. I totally understand a restaurant not being able to seat you without an reservation, but the host was obscure in his delivery and did not give me that "we can't seat you today, but please come back another time" feeling one would hope for. In fact, it was more like, "go away, please."
Nonetheless, I returned for brunch yesterday. It was not crowded, but the staff still had a slightly unpleasant edge. I ordered the steak with greens and gorgonzola cheese. There was one crumble of gorgonzola on the plate, just enough to remind me that it was supposed to be there. The steak was fatty, and although it was sliced, had several small chunks of bone in it. Despite the nice surroundings, dining at The Little Owl is an experience I don't care to repeat.

Our experience was very different from some of the below who had negative things to say. The service was impeccable. The waiter was very helpful and attentive, and the manager came over and made a great wine recommendation...served in Reidel glasses no less!! We had the scallops over rissotto, the softshell crab, the sardine appetizer, a salad I cannot remember the name of, and the roasted halibut. All food was prepared perfectly and had a nice mix of flavors. Will definitely return on our next trip to NYC.

Been for brunch a few times and the food is so slow, at least 30 minutes each time. The host is annoying... keeps checking in but is totally unaware we have waited for food. I have given it a few shots thinking it would get better, but no more. The food is good, but I do not understand the hype abou this place.

I've lived in the West Village for 5 years and this is my new favorite restaraunt. I've already been 5 times in the past few weeks. The vibe is fantastic....the music is good (loud enough but not too loud) and i like the lighting..it's unpretentious and friendly, and i would highly recommend it. I would also recommend doing a "tasting"...it's not on the menu but they are more than happy to do it. My favorite dishes are the risotto, the scallops and the cod. the cod in particular is fantastic. its packed almost every time i walk by but you can have a glass of wine while you wait...and its definitly worth it, although reservations are helpful. enjoy!!

Stopped by the little owl based on a friend's recommendation the other night and had a fantastic time. Our waitress was extremely attentive and I loved my appetizer (sliced duck with truffles and almonds) and entree (the pork chop). The restuarant has a wonderfully unpretentious vibe, and is a beautiful spot for dinner at sunset. I will definitely return.

I hate saying anything negative, but when you give a resturant (new or not) a couple of chances and still even your friends are complaining about the food (Nice presentation, but very bland - where is the slightest bit of "mediterranean" influence? Where!? And, given the limited chef's menu, almost nothing was available that we wanted to order. Lastly, the rissoto tasted like Lipton instant rice - not worth $14), as far as drinking - you have the option of Wine or paying 5$ for a PBR!! They have beautiful hi ball glasses and nothing to mix in them, are they just for looks? We all smelled like kitchen grease when we left because the closet they call their kitchen seems to smoke up the dining room. Not very "romantic". Lastly, both times I felt as if the waitress was more interested in taking her cigarette break than re-filling my water glass. You can find something better in the neighborhood almost anywhere. Back to the drawing board, sorry guys. Good Luck.

"Our experience at The Little Owl , in the west village at Grove and Bedford was wonderful! The ambiance is intimate, comfortable, the perfect setting to enjoy a great meal, marvelous wines, wonderful music and be able to carry on a conversation.
We were greeted by a charming Gabe Stulman, host and part owner of The Little Owl. He entrusted us into the very capable hands of our server, Monica, but came by throughout the evening to make sure we were happy and we were...very.
The menu offers an interesting and flavorful variety of appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts. Creative without being pretentious. My friends and I sampled appetizers with, salmon, duck and pasta...all delicious and light enough to save room for the rest of our meal. Excellent fresh bread accompanied this course. Our host expertly selected our wines for us as requested.
Three of us had "melt in your mouth" fish dishes including a whole red snapper, cod and halibut. Raves all around. My husband and I shared crispy chicken and a steak that was smothered in a fabulous sauce with pancetta, mushrooms and other wonderful flavors. Creamy green mashed potatoes, asparagus home fries, broccoli rabbe and other very tasty side dishes
complimented our entrees well.
We tried all the desserts...they sounded toofabulous to pass up. The chocolate offering was "to die for"!, The raspberry biegnets were light and not too sweet...just right. They were served with a little chocolate/hazelnut butter... WOW!! There was alovely assortment of freshly baked cookies and biscotti, baked strawberry custard, a variety of gelatos and fruit sorbets. The lemon basil sorbet was outstanding.
Partner and chef Joey Campanaro came out to make sure we were happy with our choices. Not only did we appreciate his talent , but it was easy to see that his heart is in his work.
We had a great meal and a perfectly delightful evening at The Little Owl." Don't miss it!

We had a reservation which was confirmed by the restaurant once and we called again to confirm the day before (count: 2 confirmations). We then got a call 15 minutes before the reservation asking if we were still coming as they had us down for one hour earlier. When we told them it was a mistake (the restaurant's mistake) the host was completely unapologetic and did nothing to help us get in that night. The way they handled the mistake was embarassing, especially for a new restaurant setting out to make its reputation. We were totally put off and don't plan on returning.

This cozy West Village corner is run by charming people cranking out high class food. The wine list includes a good number of half bottles... and if it's beer you're thirsty for, TLO indulges with a smart selection of lambics and ales. Don't miss the meatball appetizer, the hamachi or the skirt steak. The strawberry custard was exquisite, and although our stomachs wouldn't allow it, we intend to go back to sample the 4 inch spheres of icecream that were being lowered in front of everyone around us. It won't be long before there are long lines outside of what is certain to become a neighborhood destination.

Although this place has only been open 2 weeks, it has definite potential. My friend took me here as a surprise on my bday and service was excellent - our water (and wine!) glasses were never half empty and the staff was warm and wonderful. The food is also good although there are a few kinks to work out - the soft shell crab appetizer wasn't quite as 'soft' as it should be and the halibut was a little too peppery, but my friend loved his cod and said it was perfect. I have faith that this place will deliver once it has been around a little longer. Romantic ambiance and charming space - this is a great new spot to check out.
