I went to this restaurant over Labor Day weekend and was very excited to try the food. Unfortunately, our experience was terrible due to our extremely rude and snobby waitress named Caroline. \r

I went there with some girlfriends and the creepy bus boys harassed us throughout our dinner. Sadly, we saw some of the waiters notice the bus boys' behavior, but no one stepped in. We went to the restaurant's website after to contact the owner via email, but no such availability is provided on the site. Maybe they don't want to hear about it? In any respect, we will not be returning to this restaurant for our nights out.

We have been to Five Points and their sister restaurant Cookshop a dozen times, never had we had a bad meal, bad service or anything unsatisfactory. Last Saturday was however the last time we will visit or spent any money at these

Five Points is still the best brunch in the city. While it is always crowded and a bit insane at the host stand, they are still always welcoming and charming. I've always had great servers there as well. We started with churros and the pastry basket which was a nice way to kick off our meal. The pastry basket had a scone, muffin, biscuit and a few other treats- all the breakfast faves. I had the huevos rancheros which is just oven baked perfection which cripy tortilla strips layered in. I sampled my friends' french toast and chipotle chicken dishes and both were sweet and savory goodness. The best bet is to make a reservation, but the bustling atmosphere is half the fun. I keep going back- love the food and service.

Excellent brunch, up there for me as some of the best in downtown manhattan central east or DMCE (pronounced Dumb-Key) Just you wait the realtors will be using that within days! This is my old hood and Five points, Paprika, Great Jones Cafe, Mogador etc were all on the rotation - although westerly sojourns to Cowgirl, or Agave for brunch would not be discouraged. FP's is very solid. Churros are delish, as are the marys, the egg scrambles which they roast rather nicely in the oven are fun too. Overall - super solid brunch (on the fence if its worth the wait). Space is pretty cool too.

Cons: Crowded, waits ensue.

$100 down the drain for me and my wife last night (without wine). Almost criminal. I hope management has the sense to give our cash to the bus boys working their asses off rather than the lazy waiters and chef who needs some serious re-freshor training back at the summer camp kitchen from where he probably came. Although the cracker bread was good, the apps and entrees were close to inedible. 'tis a crying shame this restaurant should be allowed to remain open. Halibut was cooked to the dryness of brick and smothered in some kind of silly olive broth sitting on way overcooked potatoes. The flank steak seemed to be made of wood. Was that Domino sugar coating the porterhouse pork? How quaint: baby artichokes, but smothered in cheese without any sense balance. Big **ing deal.

Save your money, people, and go stand in line at one of the famous Ray imitation pizza places for a far better meal.

Five Points was written up in Urban Daddy as having "$5 Martinis and $2 Oysters Everyday 5-7", so i go with 3 other people to check it out thinking it is a great deal.. my brother and his girlfriend got there before us and sat at the bar and ordered a drink, the bartender was going to charge them full price until i mentioned the $5 deal, and he rolled his eyes and gave us attitude as he poured me my drink. We then sat down at the table for dinner and try to order another drink and the waiter said it was $12!! the promotion is only at the bar! we had to pay full price because we sat down at a table, he also said the oysters served at the bar were "different" then the ones served in the restaraunt (prob from the hudson river). I pleaded with the waiter to try and give us the discount telling him it WASN'T advertised as being only at the bar and was a main reason we chose to go (plus the restaratunt was EMPTY). Why should we have to pay full price if it was advertised differently? The waiter (who was the best part of the experience, really great guy who tried to help us out) tried to talk the bartender into giving us the deal at the table, and the bartender refused! I then go up to the bar to try and order the drink, the bartender insulted me and told me i can't bring the drink to the table and that it is only a bar deal, and tells me to speak to the manager as it was his rule. There are so many restaraunts in NYC that have recession specials and have much better food then this place, do they really have the nerve to be so rude to customers who are willing to spend a lot of money on food that is overpriced and not that great? Did they really need for us to pay the $7 extra for a martini and $1 extra for the oysters just because we sat down to have dinner? My advice is don't advertise a "deal" to draw people in to the restaraunt if you can't follow through with it, and if you meant to say "only at bar" you should still honor what you advertise and not insult and anger customers who are paying good money to eat your food. The only reason we even stayed was because the waiter was so apologetic and gave us a "free" drink (the bartender messed up my boyfriends order). Don't go to this place, there are so many better restaraunts in the area that treat their customers better and aren't as stingy about a couple of dollars.

Great bar dining and a friendly bar staff that comps drinks. Try the lavender gimlet and the chicken liver appetizer.

My sister-in-law held her rehearsal dinner at The Five Points Restaurant. Considering we had such a big group the service was great. They had a few very good drinks. They also were very accommodating to the fact I had two very young kids. The food was delicious! I highly recommend this restaurant for anybody who wants a good place for a date!

Make sure you make a reservation for this top NYC brunch place. They have amazing melt-in-your mouth Mexican churros and hot chocolate (the best I've ever had), and an extensive menu that works for me (a vegetarian) and my husband (a serious meat eater). The service was attentive but not too much so, and the food was fabulous.

came last wknd, a group of 6 of us had rsvps for 11, when it opens. when we got there at 11, there was already a bunch of people waiting for it to open! anyways, we were seated promptly, our waitress was attentive, and the food was great! each of us got a diff dish and everyone liked what they had....i dont remember all, but the strawberry pancakes, mexican omelette thing, and my egg omelette with cherry tomatoes and riccotta cheese were so good. i think someone else had the fried chicken and ate it to the bone. all in all a nice brunch place to chill with friends/family/date in a nice area close to shopping SoHo. would recommend it!

I went with my wife and 6 month old for brunch. People there were so nice and we didn't have a reservation. The wait was about 30 minutes and we had a great table in the center next to the water fountain. Service was top notch and food was great!

I have been going to Five Points for years and have never been disappointed. The menu has something to please all tastes and moods. Their burger is one of the best in town. Their use of seasonal ingredients keeps the specials always interesting and the chef has that light, full flavored touch that I miss from my days in Italy. Keep up the good work guys!

I came to Five Points today anxious to indulge in the brunch which boasts to be the best. As many say, the food is probably the best brunch in NYC, in quality and selection. However, I'd like to warn all as I had an unfortunate experience at the front door before I was ever seated. Although we came with reservations, big appetites, and in good spirits, our plans were quickly trampled on by the abrupt, dismissive manner of the young, blond woman at the front stand (maitre d' or perhaps manager--too bad I was too offended to ask for her name). Our table wasn't ready as promptly as we were, which is fine, but to be told that so condescendingly and unprofessionally truly sets the mood for a foul meal from the get go. The only thing she knows how to communicate is a false smile and a white lie of a "short wait". Then, as we waited in the crowded bar area, I witnessed her talk down to all of the other customers who checked in after me, as well as an unnecessarily harsh and impatient tone with her colleages. We tried not to let this woman's bad day or lifetime of bad attitude ruin our meal, but it is hard to believe that both she and the server--who was young, adorable and beyong cheerful--actually work in the same establishment. That said, the food was impeccible (must have the churros!) and once seated and away from the miserable lady, the service was excellent. I can't wait to go again and recommend this place to friends--on the SOLE condition that I know for sure that that woman won't be there to yell at me upon my arrival. Note to management: Fire the blond maitre d' and give a raise to the rest of your staff! Thanks for the delicious meal.

I met some friends here for dinner on a Sat evening. I was a bit hesitant, knowing Saturday nights can be loud at New York eateries. My friends and I were hugely impressed with this place. It combines what's rare at many restaurants in NYC: great food, excellent service, stylish scene, comfortable noise level and charm! Yes, awesome wine list and specialty house cocktails. Great place to take your parents or a date to.

Beautifully decorated for the Holiday and the price seemed quite reasonable for the dinner. I had the lobster salad and the turkey and the apple crisp. 2 of us spent about 180 bucks including tip for a really nice thanksgiving dinner. I would definitely go again for another meal. I've saved it to my list!

We were there for Brunch last sunday and I must say, that after whoever answered the phone hung up on me in a rude manner, we still walked over since we live in the area and had reservations. The girl at the door was incredibly unattentive and beyond rude. Her attitude was not at all friendly for a hospitality job. her name might have been Melissa(?). I understand brunch gets crazy with the kids and all, but the restaurant should staff accordingly to tackle those issues. We observed as other people were treated the same way. I coudn't undertstand whatever went wrong over the hostess. We were waiting at the bar and the bartenders were cool and well collected. We had awesome Bloody Marys while we waited. We were seated a little past our time at a nice table of 2, we had to ask for napkins. the server was aloof and sort of lost in his surroundings. The menu had a good selection and I've been there numerous times for dinner and brunch so I knew what to expect and pretty much knew what I was going to have. I was trying to impress my date and it didn't go so well. I had to ask for bread to one of the "deaf and blind" members of the staff that ignored me while i was trying to get their attention. Food that was supposed to go to another table came to mine. Our main courses took forever. Of course we skipped dessert and coffee, which is a shame, the server could've made some better tips. I'll give 'em one more shot since i love the food, but if i get this service again I'll make sure New York knows.

My girlfriends and I had a great brunch here. The atmosphere was a little more upscale than we're used to (we're real LES chicks) but it was dim and peaceful--good if you're nursing a hangover!

My sister and I both had sandwiches. Mine was the Portabello Mushroom and was great. Hers was the BLT and was a little dry.

You get two mimosas with your brunch, which is awesome.

I live around the corner from Five Points and used to be a frequent customer but no more! I am not sure whether the menagement of the restaurant has changed or the popularity of this place got in to the heads of those who run it but don't come here if you are hungry because you may never see the food. The host treats guests as if he was doing you a favor... if you think you had a table, don't hold your breath - he can just give it to the people standing behind you in line, and then argue angrily that they don't have any more tables to seat you. If you think a manager should be able to restrain his employees from unruly behavior, think again...he would be as rude to you as his inferior. The owners of this place may think that the success they have now will stay with them forever, but trust me if you don't treat your regular customers right, even in a big city like NYC the word of mouth travels very fast...

i stopped by around 9:30 on a saturday night and was seated right away. the decor of the restaurant is quite lovely and i found it very romantic. soft lighting, trees, and candles. our server was great and didn't bother us too often. the drink menu was varied and not too pricey. i had a citrus herb martini which cost $10 (which is about the same as most cocktails on the menu). we started with the arugula, beet, and goat cheese salad which was very good. i would highly recommend the pizette with fontina, yukon potatoes, and truffle oil. it's to die for. our entrees were wonderful and reasonably priced.

if you enjoy lemoncello, theirs is homemade and strong! i definitely wasn't expecting such a kick! i would definitely come back.

the water pipe/wood trunk in the middle is cool, it's a constant waterfall. 5 huge flower arrangements split the room in half length wise. the service okay, the waiter was a little over the top, the bartender cheesy, but both friendly. juliana's food was accidently left out the order so we had to wait an extra 15min for her grub, after we had already waited very long for our food to come. 9-1130pm, food was okay. the oysters were good. the oahu was pretty steaky, a little fishy. the pickled carrots free appetizer was good. they did offer juliana's caneloni for free, took it off the check, and gave her a complimentary glass of wine. the caneloni sucked in my opinion, too plain for $18.

This restaurant is quite elegant with charming attentive servers. However last Sunday was very disappointing- a greasy radicchio salad was followed by bass in a sea of oil and steak cooked indelicately diner style. I guess sunday night is amateur night in the kitchen. Pricey no less. We are not giving it a second chance.

I was reminded last night why I used to go to this place all the time when I lived in the neighborhood. The food is consistently tops, even the little carrot and parnips snack they bring you when you sit down. The service is always friendly and even when they get a bit busy, they make up for it in their own way -- like last night when the host was such a sweetheart and gave us complimentary dessert wines (probably helped that we'd been on a wine and oysters bender and had just ordered two desserts!). Get the sticky toffee pudding dessert - oh yum...

My brunch was very yummy, made a reservation and was promptly seated one saturday afternoon at 1230. got the churros with mexican hot chocolate and the eggs rancheros. YUM! i ate it all and it was delish, would def come back, and the pricing is good. the service was a bit slow, esp. waiting for the check, but brunch is a busy time and i guess that is ok.

I first went to Five Points for a business lunch, but I've returned time and time again for the food, decor, and service. Very pretty inside, and I love love love the food. The bar is also quite snazzy.

Went to this restaurant to celebrate my birthday with family and friends. Seated promptly, was served bread and drinks quick as well. The menu was so extensive and appetizing it was hard to just pick one thing! However, the porkchop is supposed to be one of the best in town, and it lived up to that notion. The atmosphere was grand, the lighting was a bit too low, but it was a late night dinner, so we can forgive them for that. The attention to our water glass and wine glass was very good as well...all in all a delight!

I have been here a few times in the last three months and I love it! The happy hour cocktails are excellent and really good value. The Fontina Truffle Pizza on the apps menu is To Die For. Great staff too.

I was a bit disappointed with the food (maybe it was what I ordered), but the decor, the staff, the drinks, the aroma...no complaints there. I opted for a simple baked eggs and sausage dish, which was so-so...but then my friend and I split the gingerbread pancakes for a desert. YUM

This is more of a response to Janellyo's review. Five Points is very reasonable. Where do you normally go for Brunch? McDonalds? The food is amazing. The price is right. The nicest waitstaff. I feel this is one of the best restaurants in NYC.

This is a response to vasorge: maybe YOU should be asking yourself where do you eat brunch from because you obviously have not had superior food. And I didn't say the food was BAD at Five Points, I said that it was disappointing after reading most of the reviews (I'm not the only one who thinks they're overrated, mind you). You need to learn how to read reviews properly too before you start attacking people's opinions.

------------
My boyfriend and I went here upon recommendation from his co-worker who said this was the best brunch place in the city. But overall, the experience was average. The decor is nice inside and the service is very professional. Our main compliant is that the food is overpriced for what it is. We won't be going back here. There are other places in the city that offer better food at a better price with similar ambience.

Went to Five Points for dinner on a Sat. night. Had an enjoyable brunch in the past, but dinner was hohum. Kitchen's only ability to accommodate any appetizer without garlic due to an allergy was a green salad. Food was good, but lacked creativity. Service was off - bus boys kept trying to clear dishes from table even though we were clearly still eating and were not dawdling at our table.

I met some friends of mine for brunch one Saturday at Five Points Restaurant, located near the Bowery section of the East Village, where the five of us enjoyed churros and decadently rich Mexican Hot Chocolate before our scrumptious meals. We were happy to be seated in the courtyard section of the restaurant where an impressive glass ceiling allowed us to view the gloriously sunny afternoon while listening to the peaceful sounds of the rock fountain located near our table.

Three of us ordered the Banana-Stuffed French Toast with Dulce de Leche, a creme caramel sauce. I found this dish to be a little on the over-fried side and not as crispy as Id like since the bananas kind of "mushified" the toast, but that didnt stop me from wolfing down all three enormous slices!

The food was good but we were dissatisfied with waiting too long for a uncomfortable table. We made reservations and still had to wait almost 1 hour and the entire time we were being pressured to order drinks at the bar. I would go again, but my husband didn't like the attitude of the maitre'd Leigh. He seemed bothered by our requests to be seated and cold, despite the fact that it was our fifth anniversary.

Went here randomly just the other night. Prices are decent. As an appetizer, we ordered the "potato pizzette" which is made of truffle oil. It tasted okay. A bit too much cheese and oil. The duck entree we had was good though. The meat was very tender, not dry at all. It just falls right off the bone, which I love. For dessert we had sorbet in the flavors of black plum, strawberry, and lemon. So good!

Nothing about Five Points sticks out in my memory as fantastic... but everything is really very good. Elegant but casual, good service, good menu, good food, neighborhood feel. Your dinner will be good, your wine will be good, your waiter will be attentive, the ambiance will be pleasant. Nothing will be overwhelmingly memorable or special but you'll leave happy. Good place to take parents or work colleagues, as the ambiance is sophisticated-casual-mellow but hip folks in their 40s to 50s.

We had a great night at 5 Points - good service, nice wait staff, all in all a good experience. Most of the dishes that we ordered were excellent - good hangar steak, decent oysters, and the Potato pizza with truffle oil was excellent (although perhaps a bit overdone on the truffle oil, if that's possible). However the Halibut was a disaster (and ironically, the most expensive dish on the menu)...bland, with a watery sauce that did nothing to add to the flavor of the dish, set on a bed of lima beans and peas which dominated the flavor. Not good. Otherwise it's a nice place to eat.

I took my mother here for a Sunday brunch and it was excellent. Pleasant and serene atmosphere, with a running stream of water, cherry blossoms and an open kitchen that reminds you of a country home. The food was reasonably priced and of excellent quality. Great variety and interesting dishes, too. I would highly recommend for anyone looking for a delicious and unpretentious - but lovely - brunch place in NY.

There's a table at the end of the restaurant that's situated right under a skylight, it's the perfect setting for Sunday brunch especially when there's sunlight pouring down from above. We had a party of 5. I ordered the fried chicken, which is buttermilk-dipped and fried to a crisp, juicy, leg of sin. I like this place.

Went here for a dinner and it was great. the food was really yummy. i had a great endive salad which didnt have an overwhelming amt of dressing which is really nice and might i add rare for many restaurants out there. the pork chop was really good and huge so much so that i was soo full on barely half of it. the sauce was nice and not too salty but still very flavorful. the decor was cute. not overly trendy and in your face of trying to be cool but more comfortable and cozy. great place highly recommended.

i really can't complain about this place but i also wasn't wowed by anything either. with an overabundance of great restaurants in new york, this one kind of falls into the cracks.

Do not try to make a reservation for more than 6 people during brunch because Five Points kitchen can not handle it. There are no exceptions including advance notice. Beware!

Though I wasn't starving, it was still a bit surprising to find four (yes, FOUR) scallops on my plate for dinner. That's about $6 a scallop. Our waiter was pleasant, but seemed unphased at how long we waited for our meals and needed a gentle reminder to check on the status of our order. Even the dessert was long in coming. So while the food was good, the spotty service and scallops priced like gold will keep me away in the future.

I'm can't pinpoint exactly what it is but I love this place. Never been for dinner but love the brunch - both the breakfast choices and the lunch choices are delicious and fresh. Service is great too! In the winter try their famous hot chocolate. It gets crowded at brunch but I never feel rushed and although you have to wait for our table, I don't mind waiting around because I like the atmosphere.

A wonderful layout on a cool little street and a neat garden too. We went for brunch, My simple green salad was a surprise. It was heart warming, what a great dressing....the best. I also had a tasty sausage, egg, buttermilk biscuit creation.
Next time I go it will be for dinner because I suspect brunch night be the busiest time and our waiter was working very hard to keep up.
