I went to Peel's this past weekend for dinner with some friends and we loved it. I am a huge fan of Freeman's so I knew I had to try it. The chicken was the best I've had and the service was good. The atmosphere is fun and cozy with the ultimate comfort food menu. I will definitely be back!

The Baked Good Rock

I haven't eaten at Peels, but I did try some of the beautiful, rustic-looking baked goods at their downstairs counter and I was not disappointed. A buckwheat muffin with lemon marmalade and rosemary was an intriguing mix of flavors and a lovely hearty consistency. The graham crackers were buttery, crisp and darkly delicious. The brown butter rice crispy treat was an elegant take on this classic. And the girl who made my tea was just as sweet.

I don't know about dinner, but I've gone there twice for brunch and it was delicious. My literal first thought after biting into the eggs with greens was "stop that.." it was so good. The staff seem friendly and accommodating, the ambiance is comfortable yet classy. The food was hot and delicious, as was the coffee. All in all, really nothing to complain about and much to commend. Hopefully dinner will be just as good because I'm planning my friend's birthday there!

Amazing cocktails... get the bond st. swizzle... Gin base drink with crushed ice muttled mint with absenthe float and hint of almond... Yeah it was dead on and fantastic! wondeful good comfort food... I had the porkloin and it was of the best dishes I had in a long long time, served with sweet potato mash and a crab apple compote... Sweet yet savory. Yum! Waitress sweet, kind and all around helpful... The decor is clean and fresh, but still very hip and not in that cheesey way.... This place is it, from the well dressed staff to the stemware. Listen going out to eat in NYC isn't just about the food, it's about how the experience makes you feel. This a place to be seen and brag to your friends about. i also just found out they open at 7am!! stumptown coffee and fresh baked muffins, this is the new spot, get on board

I went here for brunch last weekend and it was delicious. Great service, cute decor and really solid food. Not a complaint among my 4 person group.

I'm a self-proclaimed coffee snob and Peels is the only place I go now for espresso. They have a great variety of beans and their milk is always fresh. They simply throw the best shots in Manhattan. I also get the monkey bread from their display case and it is amazing. I honestly wish I could swim in the cream cheese frosting. Mmm. It seems others are unhappy with their sit-down service, but I love their take out. They should stick to coffee and pastries.

The problem with reading reviews is that you are never sure of the writers motives. Are these actual customers or shills from rival restaurants.? This was recommended to my daughter and myself by a local, after I enquired about a good place to get a burger. Woww Great Burgers Very nice decor a bit over priced $22.00 for an exceptional burger and fries huge portions could have easily been shared with food left over. My Coke was flat (even though it came from a bottle) and got a sour puss from the bartender when the waitress brought it to him. Other than that cheerful waitstaff.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
