We just went to The Odeon - 4:45 pm, that too during Christmas week. The service was very good, esp since we were there during the time when staff are eating and getting reading for the dinner shift. Excellent frites, really - I would go back there just for the 'french fries.' Tender, melt-in-your-mouth bucatini pasta. And the desserts - holy s----. All I can say, do not miss the custard brioche pudding, it's so good it's wrong ; ) In conclusion, I don't know what some previous posters are talking about ... i think they're just being way tooooooo picky and critical. To each to his/her own.

We used to eat here at least once a week when Keith McNally owned it. we went back today. AWFUL. It started with the bread and then went to the drinks,the food. They changed what was once one of the greatest menu's in manhattan to the most diner like crap i ever saw. we are foodies and work in the advertising business in the city. we had to email everyone we know to tell them what a downturn this place has taken. Tiny salad portions for big money. Just a terrible experience except for the service. We have crossed it off our list. maybe you should too.

The all-purpose restaurant. Great breakfast, great brunch, great dinner....great place to go anytime for those delicious little donuts served hot with raspberry jam and maple dipping sauce. I even forgive them for taking the peanut butter banana tart off the menu. I love this place...a lot. I highly recommend the steak au poivre and robiola cheese ravioli.

This once-hip TriBeCa landmark jsut felt noisy, crowded, and overrun with all types of people when I was there for late night Friday snacking. Let the kids and the neighborhood have it back...didn't find anything memorable.

While it looks like a bistro direct from Paris, this TriBeCa favorite serves mostly American cuisine in a room full of atmosphere. Singles, business types, as well as families stop by for some decent food served in a casual but yet professional style.
