The staff could not have been friendlier. Our server Miriam was like an old friend. The food was excellent. We had the Arctic Char and the Veal Chop and both were amazing. Would highly recommend.

We have been to this place multiple times. Their food and service are excellent. Although it is hard to get a table, it is definitely worth the effort to book it well in advance.

This was our first time eating brunch at The Little Owl, and it's maybe the best brunch we've ever had. Their french toast was superb, and I loved their pomegranate mixed drink. The service was great as always. I highly recommend having a reservation as...More

Was told to try The Little Owl, and I have to say, it was all they said it would be. A very small place, but the food was great, the service awesome (Thanks Meredith!). Had teh Pork Chop which was simply great.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

If you have a reservation, I assume you could have appetizers and a drink, then leave promptly so someone else could be accommodated. There are good appetizers and it is not necessary to eat a ton of food. There seems to be... More
