    The coziest place I’ve been to in a while, really crowded. Brisket and lobster mac and cheese, paella, and their gnocchi👌🏻 the vibe itself is worth the visit guys.

    One of the best meals I've had in NYC. Lobster mac & cheese is everything they've said it is and for dessert, don't miss the date pudding! It's absolutely amazing.

    The Mac & Cheese here is my favorite in all of NYC. I'm not sure what cheese blend they use, but it's an excellent combination. No beer taps & no reservations. Bottled beer. Wine bar feeling.

    One of my favorite local spots in the UES, make reservations early because there is limited seating. I could recommend everything, the food is consistently good.

    The paella is a amazing! Not too salty or greasy and the right amount of seafood chorizo! A great selection of wine. Call ahead to reserve a spot or risk waiting a while!

    Tuna Tartar was amazing! Definitely a must have. We had the short ribs special that was so delicious and the Mac and cheese with mushrooms and truffle oil. Best comfort food in NYC.

    The mac and cheese is incredible, but I’d also recommend any of their specials. Had a gnocchi tonight and it was the pillow-iest gnocchi I’d ever tasted

    Our go to comfort food spot in the neighborhood. Get the Mac & Cheese and the Artichoke Salad. Their beer selection is great (always a few options on "special" for $5).

    Heidi is super sweet! Make sure to call ahead and put your name on the list or you'll wait for over an hour. The shrimp tacos and Mac 'n Cheese are both amazing!

    Artichoke dip is to die for, as is the Osso Bucco. Will keep going back until I try their entire menu! Always packed so don't go when in a hurry

    If the daily special pasta is gnocchi - get it! Heidi's has the best gnocchi I've ever had! 🙌

    Their guacamole is so good. These girls know their wine and love how it's hidden between the avenues. Small but it's part of its charm

    Menu changes frequently, but can't go wrong with any of the dishes. Great wine and bottle beer list. This place is tiny, though, so get here early!

    Mac and cheese was a huge portion and too rich for my taste but their shrimp tacos and pasta of the day was delicious. Cozy and friendly atmosphere.

    Loving this Rioja. Adorable place with incredible food across the board. I love that they get their bread from Orwashers around the corner (also highly recommended).

    Exceptional service despite its small setting. Good selection of wines and IPA's. Their pan seared steamed vegetables are exquisite.

    Gnocchi is the best I've ever had. Personally I think the mac and cheese is a bit too rich, but basically everything is delicious.

    Very allergy-unfriendly. Gluten in almost everything, even the scallops. Gave up after asking about it in 5-6 different dishes.
