It was amazing as always. Even though it was the last day that restaurants were open before mandatory closure due to COVID-19. Have love The Odeon for more than 20 years.

This restaurant was a bit of a disappointment. We dined early on a Friday night and took our seats shortly after 6 PM. What we found were two very annoying things. First, there was no waiter assigned to our table. Rather, it appeared to be a tagteam arrangement involving no less than three different servers. None of them appeared to talk to each other so we had maddening instances in which three different waiters would come by the table and ask the same thing (how is the food?) and equally maddening incidents in which we could go for some amount of time without anyone attending to our needs (e.g. more water). Second, it was obvious that all of the waiters were anxious to turn the table and all three of them came by as we were ordering dessert and started clearing the table, asking us if we wanted anything else, wiping the table as we lifted our glass, etc. When my wife asked for a refill on her coffee, the waiter’s dissatisfaction was written all over her face. Frankly, the three of these servers did everything but pull our chairs out from under us after about 75 minutes. Besides this, food is OK, the noise level is robust and the prices are typical Manhattan, i.e. Inflated by about 30%.

We went to brunch at the Odeon for our daughters,25th. It was an upbeat crowd, very busy. Staff was attentive and knowledgeable. We did not ask for a candle but our server surprised us with one on our donuts, nice touch. The food was excellent, certainly overpriced for the level of cuisine but that is the area, we knew what we were getting into.

A serious disappointment at our neighborhood go-to restaurant: barely cool martinis, cool omelettes and even cooler fries. We should have sent everything back but the restaurant was filled and it was ear-splitting noisy and we wanted to get out.

I ordered the avocado toast. It was on one very small piece of bread with nothing else on the plate. The fries were separate.
Our friend ordered the smoked salmon and bagel. The plate was boring, the bagel an embarrassment to NYC.

How many New York City restaurants are still going strong over 30 years past their peak commercial fame? This old reliable art deco bistro is still chugging along with classic French technique and seasonal farm ingredients. The front and back of the house both know their domains well and refuse to change, thank goodness. Please keep serving those spicy chicken dumplings, strip steak frites, and profiteroles for years to come.

Truly great service and nice ambience make for a great experience. The centerpiece Steak Frites was good, not great. The portion would be considered a tad small for the $42 they charge so I guess we paid for ambience? Overall a good experience and I'd return again.
