Worth a 30 minute subway ride. I'll start off by saying I don't have a single complaint with this establishment, only praise. Service was just the right amount of attentive, prices were right in line, and even though the place is small it was plenty roomy. The highlight though was the food. From the gravy meatball sliders and arugula & artichoke salad, to the steak tacos and the cod, every single plate I tried was delicious. I even tried five different deserts and they were all good. They don't have liquor because of their proximity to a school but somehow they even managed to pull off great cocktails! I'll definitely be coming back.

I love, love, love the staff (including the owner), food and wine list. If my schedule permitted, I'd visit at least once/week. Highly recommended.

Perhaps one of the most popular brunch spots in West Village, The Little Owl is almost a requisite stop for all fans of the show Friends as well as all food-loving individuals. Reservations are definitely recommended as this tiny restaurant can seat no more than 20 or so guests at a time. Unfortunately, my poached eggs arrived overcooked, although the staff was quick to replace them. The biggest draw is perhaps the ambiance, especially during the day as the windows let in a generous amount of sunlight. Prices are higher than one would normally expect, even for New York, but it's an experience some would considering worth paying for.

I like the interior and the brunch food is very good, but it’s not extraordinarily good enough to warrant the hype it receives. The famous meatball sliders are indeed juicy and flavorful, but as it comes in a small number (three), the recommended brunch dish would be the chilequiles, fried tortilla chips mixed with salsa, cheese, and eggs. The eggs can be cooked to your liking, and the sauce on the tortilla chips is a great blend of tomatoes and spices. Do make a reservation on Opentable, as seats fill up fairly quickly.

It's a great place for brunch. We had the beignets and then the organic poached eggs with salmon. The iced lattes are really good as well. I look forward to going back!

Cute, cozy and delicious. A true West Village gem that's great for dates, dinner with your parents, and catching up with friends. Get the Cheeseburger for brunch, lunch, and dinner.

Of course this place has SO MANY reviews.... it's known to be the place where the "FRIENDS" apartment was shot (at least the outside view ;)). I came here for lunch with my coworkers. We were lucky they had a big enough table for the 6 of us! it's a pretty tiny restaurant that can maybe fit 25 people max. I will say the food is excellent - do get the meatball sliders!!! Soup and veggies were typical. Prices were a little on the higher side, but what do you expect for being such a famous place? I also know food tours walk by here all the time, so you definitely know it's popular.
