    This was a lucky find. They did have a table available at the last minute or it's on a busy Friday night. Great food! Younger and older energetic crowd and yet conversation was very easy. Very positive vibe in this place. The proprietor was everywhere checking on his diners.

    This is a cute little neighborhood restaurant -- charming decor (although tables are a little close together), Italian and French music. Food is good -- tasty and well-prepared. Beef bourgignon fell apart -- didn't even need a knife. Service was very pleasant. Biggest problem is that acoustics can make it very noisy. Overall, I do recommend this restaurant.

Drink menu was creative, with imaginative names for various concoctions. Food was extraordinary and relatively inexpensive. The space was casual, comfortable, and highly recommended.

    Ambience was very nice with low lights, nice table settings, charming decor. Staff was especially friendly, accommodating, helpful; service very attentive. Food was good. Enjoyed the brussels salad, boulliabaise a little bland, but portions are ample. Very glad I found this place. Will definitely go back and definitely recommend it.

    We got to the restaurant on time for our reservation but were made to wait 45 mins before we were seated. The whole point of having a reservation is to not wait that long. The food portions were really small and tasted ok. The server was really nice and accommodating which was the only good part about the whole experience

    Osteria Nando is truly a hidden gem. Each dish was perfectly prepared. The lamb temperature was correct and the dish was succulent. The ravioli was creamy with a zesty lemon twist. The humble external facade is obscured by city works scaffolding, making it easy to pass by unnoticed. Once inside, the ambiance is European bistro, with attentive staff and cozy throw cushions. A complimentary slice of tiramisu was a perfect end to our meal. We recently occupied one of only two tables seated during a late lunch. I’m astonished that more people don’t know about this little spot, only a few minutes walk from The Met 5th Ave. I love to pop over mid-way through a day at the Met for a delicious meal and peaceful intermission.

    Wow. First timer. Everything else filled and reservations hard to come by on a Saturday night. The restaurant was packed, and standing room only in the bar. Our group of 5 arrived on schedule 745pm and Justin had us seated by 750. The service was very good. The food was excellent. You cant go wrong with the Italian French Mediterranean combo. Every dish was delicious. Dessert too. Price very reasonable. We will be back. So happy OpenTable introduced us to this hidden gem.
