    Always great, everything is good and the place is so cozy. Your date will love it!

    Wallflower is a tiny French bistro fronted by a cocktail bar. Garnished with streaks of Angostura, curling citrus peels or thick layers of foam, the drinks are all miniature works of art. Read more

    New brunch menu. Lobster & grits 👌. Savory morning bun. Good drinks to boot. It's a neighborhood gem for good reason.

  • Neil C.

    A limited menu but everything on it is fantastic. Go for the pork belly.

    For spicy cocktails, Shush >> Cornelia. Scallops are excellent and I don't even like scallops. Skip the tuna tartare: too much sesame oil.

    Cocktails and the hamachi are awesome

    Get your girl or boy, start with a cocktail, advance to a bottle of wine and be happy... You're in one of these little spots that made you be in love with the village.

    The Stockholm syndrome cocktail is amazing - citrusy, not sweet, kind of savory. The waitress called it funky lemonade

    Hidden gem. One of my favorite cocktail bars in West Village. Delicious seasonal french plates available. Cozy, intimate, chic. Recommend for dates or catching up with a friend.

    Came for my boyfriend's bday, one of my favorite meals in the city. Splurge for the tasting menu, so worth it! Favorites include snapper crudo and the cod.

    Really amazing cocktails. Love the cozy space, great for dates. Food options were limited, tasty but not amazing. Disappointed with the bouillabaisse (see photo). Service was attentive.

  • Valentin G.

    This place is a hidden gem! The restaurant has a really menu, with a French inspiration. You can also have great cocktails at bar.

    Cute lil hole in the wall place. Great cocktails... Perfect for a date spot... Love the lighting and the tin ceiling.

  • Margarita K.

    So happy to find this gem! The cocktails are perfectly balanced. Ask the bartender to surprise you with an off the menu drink. Have to come back for the food.

    Went on New Year's Eve. Super cozy and superb food. I'd give it a 10.

    Where is this place!? Impossible to find.

    Stuart Thompson · December 13, 2014
  • Mike M.

    Small spot with an even tinier kitchen. Make reservations for dinner or hope to get lucky for one of the four seats at the bar. Get the New Fashioned cocktail (includes maple syrup).

    Cornelia, negroni carbonata

    Sweet for a date, great drinks, surprisingly tasty crudo and short rib.

  • Michael C.

    Ask Xavier for his 'off the menu' cocktails once you have tried most of the ones on the menu. He will not disappoint.

    Michael Chang · November 16, 2014
  • Ana Maria V.

    Cozy and tiny place with amazing drinks!

    Xavier, the bartender, makes impressive and extremely enjoyable cocktails.

    Great cocktails. Food is pricey and portions are small, but it's really interesting.

    Betty Draper, the new fashioned and the dude.

    Owner/head bartender was out of commission with an injury since July, but he'll be back behind the bar 9/13. Menu changes coming too.

  • lauren

    Great place for drinks & a snack, not a great dinner spot unless you're doing the pre fixe menu.

    lauren · September 4, 2014
  • Katie R.

    Sidewalk cafe with bright red bistro chairs. Order an inventive cocktail and ricotta toast.

    Katie Ressmeyer · August 19, 2014
  • Lori L.

    This cozy restaurant offers an excellent selection of cocktails from the former head bartender at Daniel, all paired with a concise and well-executed food menu.

    Lori Luo · August 10, 2014
  • Andrew C.

    Quaint French location perfect for an intimate or romantic cocktail. Get the Adam & Eve, served like this with a paper straw!

    Andrew Choi · August 9, 2014
  • Broc K.

    prix fixe. the dude. service.

    Broc Klein · August 7, 2014
  • Mike S.

    Food is good, but the cocktails are the highlight. Better for apps and drinks than a full dinner.

    Mike Singleton · July 27, 2014
  • Rafi S.

    Xavier is a gem. Ask him for a cocktail reco and you can't go wrong. Do the prix fixe and you'll be stuffed. Don't miss the barley risotto, which is much lighter than a normal risotto. Sit outside.

    Rafi Syed · June 23, 2014
  • Su Ann L.

    the brioche is exquisite

    The goat cheese appetizer is amazing!

    Tapas. The mixologist made me one of the best drinks EVER here. I have no idea what it was, but it was spicy and incredible. Small spot, will be more difficult with large groups.

    Victoria Natenzon · May 3, 2014
  • Caroline R.

    If you're having dinner, the lobster dish is great. Get a chèvre course to start and a taste from the raw bar. The waiters had good recs so I'd recommend enlisting their help too.

    Caroline Rubin · April 28, 2014
  • Samuel S.

    Beautiful waitress. Delicious drinks.

    Samuel Sweeney · April 18, 2014
  • Nathalie N.

    Cute cocktail bar, I would make a reservation unless you prefer to sit at the bar. They make a really great smokey cocktail that is a must try for the whiskey lover.

    “The cocktail list is heavy on brand names & obscure ingredients (bergamot juice, allspice dram) & inevitably requires smartphone-assisted navigation, yet the resulting creations are often one-note.” Read more

    Delicious cocktails!

    Great little hidden gem! Perfect for really good cocktails, and they have a small dining room as well. Love this place.

    Essential Cocktail: The Betty Draper, a ready-for-Winter, gin-and-calvados special with Sherry, celery juice, apple bitters

    Great little spot to have a casual dinner with friends.

    Probably one of the coolest cocktail bars I've been to in NYC. Try the drink Sush.

    Umair Zia · February 9, 2014
  • Kirk L.

    Great spot. Super service. Adam & Eve to drink. Tartare, ricotta, fish soup, and short rib to eat.
