Lunch outside on the first warm day in many months was great at Dandelion. The outside menu this spring is much larger than the one in the fall of 2020. The risotto that I had and the English breakfast my friend had were well prepared and very tasty. Service was excellent. I highly recommend Dandelion.

We enjoyed dining in the heated booths...much more pleasant and private than sitting on the sidewalk! The food was good but I've had better at other Steven Starr restaurants. I highly recommend the cheese board - the pairings were excellent. Our waiter was superb

Took myself out for a little solo date night! I was craving the curry deviled eggs. They’re sooo freaking good. I also got the cheeseboard and the lemon broccoli risotto. My server Bailey was excellent! Already looking forward to my next visit.

Horrible. Ate outside in one of the chalets. Heat was less than ideal. Service was terrible, unlike other Starr restaurants. Had to remind the waitress to take drink orders and to bring bread. Entrees were served before we had finished our appetizers. Food was fair, at best. Rabbit pie was gloppy and fairly tasteless, with no sides, and very expensive for what it was. Other entrees were just ok. Would not return for dinner under any circumstances.

While I love the covered eating space outside, it was blowing hot air like a wind tunnel. We were graciously moved to a fully outdoor table, which was chilly. That was the only downside!

I told you in reservation that we were celebrating a birthday but then I had to remind the servers 3 time that we wanted to sing happy birthday.
We also waited forever for server to come get our payment for the bill. Dandelion is usually amazing but this experience was not.

Had a nice time, ordered a steak medium rare, came out well done, sent it back next one came out medium well, at this point my date was already halfway done with her food (hers was overdone as well but she didn’t want to say anything )I was not going to send it back again and waste more food. The restaurant did comp my meal and one drink but being part of the restaurant group it’s from, I expected better. I will return with hopes of it being a fluke . I have been here a handful of times and is my favorite restaurant in the city but really let me down on my first date.
