The ambience of the restaurant is wonderful, with lots of locals chatting as well as visitors enjoying themselves. I would definitely return on my next visit to NYC.

    The salmon scrambled was delicious. The shroom omelet was lite and fluffy. Bacon cooked perfectly and the cheddar grits were a little on the soupy side for me but they were really tasty. Service was phenomenal.

    Made a reservation to have Sunday brunch at The Little Owl with my family after moving my daughter into her new college dorm. They were able to seat us right away at an outdoor table, just as we requested. I definitely recommend making a reservation as the entire time we were eating, there was a line of people waiting for a table. The service was on point and the food was delicious. Our table ordered a couple of salads, the chicken sandwich and a few of their specialty side vegetables, all were fresh, unique and tasty. We will definitely return to enjoy again!

    Food was generally very good. I could eat the corn appetizer for days, it's so delicious! Fish dishes were very well prepared and also delicious, but didn't have that irresistible must-eat-every-morsel quality. Still, highly recommend. The service was good, if a little distracted. Had to ask the waiter a couple of times for a cup of ice to chill our too-warm wine and beer, and the wait for an offer of dessert came too long after the dinner plates had been cleared leaving us staring at a bare table. My party dined in Little Owl's outdoor shed. Weather was a bit humid and so the ceiling-mounted fans made things more comfortable. A nice touch. The downside of the outdoor dining was that the neighboring table which had two small kids at it took the lack of four walls to be an invitation to get out of their chairs and move around a lot, hopping on and off the rocks of a tree pit just adjacent to our table, and generally getting into my table's bubble. Their apparently well-heeled parents made little attempt to keep their kids from moving about. The atmosphere was much improved after they left. The Little Owl is in a building that played as an apartment exterior in the show "Friends," so hordes of people and tour groups were milling about on every corner, looking toward the building and taking selfies. No fault of the restaurant's, but it's hard to relax when you have a large number of people on the street looking up above you, as if a jumper's about to take a plunge. Luckily, all dispersed after sunset when darkness fell. With both the tour groups and wild things gone, we could finally settle into the relaxed vibe of the Village.

    My husband and I had a lovely Sunday Brunch at The Little Owl. We hadn't been there in quite some time but the food and service were as wonderful as ever. I had the Grilled Chicken Breast sandwich and he had Poached Eggs. They were both delicious. Be sure to try the Beignets. You'll think you're in New Orleans! For those who love a cocktail or wine with Brunch, they have an excellent wine list with reasonably priced wines by the glass. I want to thank Danni for her warm hospitality. She made sure we were comfortable and happy with our meals. Our server, Noe was very attentive and patiently helped us when we had questions about the menu and wine options. The also have outdoor dining for those who prefer to eat outdoors. I observed that all safety protocols were in place. I highly recommend The Little Owl. We will certainly be going back soon!
