A celeb-studded crowd dines on homey American fare at this upscale Village hot spot.- Google
"Wine list and cocktail menu is wonderful - albeit a little pricey."
"A great place to go for special occasions...or if you want to indulge!"

I brought three friends here with me for the first time for restaurant week and had a less than stellar time but was personally invited back by Lisa the assistant manager and had a LOVELY time. The food was great (the brunch burger is AMAZING, topped with two cheeses and pork belly!). I highly recommend it.

The Lion is themed on a traditional British pub, and as someone from the UK I can say that it's the most glamorous pub I've ever been too. Not a sticky carpet or dart board in sight! The food and drinks here are great, though again you'd never have to pay quite as much for your burger at a Whetherspoons back home. It's a great buzzy spot to be, and I'd go back.

A Greenwich Village institution! Service was excellent, as were all three courses, amidst the lively roar of the crowd on a Saturday night!

One of my favorite restaurants in NYC. Tucked on a quiet strip of 9th Street, The Lion's intimate atmosphere is the perfect place to celebrate special occasions or just have a fabulous meal. The burrata salad is a personal favorite as is the gnocchi (which you can shave with black truffles for extra deliciousness). Wine list and cocktail menu is wonderful - albeit a little pricey. If Kenyon is working, ask to sit in his section - a true gem and wonderful server!

They recently charged me $150 for not canceling a reservation before the “72h minimum” policy. ABSURD The food is OK but inferior to places such as Waverly inn, Casa Lever or Cipriani which I highly recommend.

As a restaurant this place was just okay. The food, especially for their prices, left a lot to be desired. The service was great though as were their drinks, and as others have noted it attracts a trendy crowd and has a cool atmosphere. In the end I almost felt that we were better off hanging out at the bar.

The place was really cute, but it seemed too overpriced. I expect delicious food if I'm going to be paying a good amount. I've had much better food at cheaper locations, but the ambiance was fun and they have a huge selection of wine bottles.

It tastes even better than it looks. We know, it's hard to believe! Taste our market fish at dinner tonight.
