Has the Odeon ever not been perfect? I've been here hundreds of times and it is hands down the most consistent restaurant in Manhattan. A true gem.

Unsurprisingly, the Odeon is resting on its old laurels. At lunchtime the unimaginative French menu disappointed. Nice staff, though.

I have been going to this restaurant since December 2011.
The restaurant in the recent past has dramatically increased their prices which can almost be understood. What is not understood is why have they dramatically reduced the size of the portions?
One of the appetizers ordered was the kale Ceasar salad. It was delicious BUT no kale after 4/5 bites.
Their classic Tuna Burger has SHRANK in size. Unacceptable for $27.00.

Very accommodating. We arrived 1/2 hour ahead of time and though the restaurant seemed quite busy, they were great about being able to seat us then. We were not rushed to order, but server was close by so we could get here attention when we were ready to order. The food was served in a timely manner, hot and delicious. Would highly recommend The Odeon.

Still unbelievably brilliant. From the food to the service it is top notch in my book even decades later. Sitting at table #5 was also perfecto. Thank you Odeon.

The line item for $0 for the candle was a little odd.

All food was fresh, terrific.

They retracted the awning so we could have a better view of the Freedom Tower. Nice!

Never disappoints... perhaps an odd thing to comment on but when going down to the w/c... no icky greasy kitchen mat smell... being a former chef it’s anpleasure to dine in a restaurant that knows how to really clean...deliciously prepared food, great service... wonderful to have a place that never disappoints.

This is one of my favorite places in New York City. It has an authenticity that is impossible to reproduce. New places come and go, but The Odeon is an NYC timeless classic. The food is phenomenal and consistent. The wine list is so good and will surprise you with something you didn’t expect. Definitely recommended

Being going to Odeon for years and the food was great as usual. This time, however, the server was very nice, but a little forgetful even though it wasn’t that crowded.

I have been coming to this restaurant since
the 80s ans have experienced it in many incarnations including post 9/11 when it was one of the only downtown eateries to remain open. Unlike many restaurants they will seat you when you arrive even if your whole party isn’t there and the entire staff is professional and pleasant on top of which the food is well prepared and tasty. So I’m a big fan. 😊

Not worth for what you are paying. We had brunch here: my overpriced omelette was uncooked and came with nothing but a dry salad. No bread or jams or anything like that.

I was looking for the old Coffee Shop, but it is now closed, this is a very good alternative. Loved it. I went a bit early at 10am for breakfast, so it was a little quiet. I would go back.
