Expert review of Little Owl

A wonderful neighborhood spot with exceptional food.

With only 10 tables, this is a tiny restaurant with excellent food and a cozy atmosphere.

Food and drink: 

The menu here is American meets Mediterranean: think plump juicy scallops on a bed of risotto, a perfectly cooked pork chop and a crispy soft-shell crab. There is an excellent and reasonable wine list with a good selection of half bottles.

Ambience: 

I love how cozy this spot is although some might find the cramped quarters a little too intimate. On a cold winter night though there are few more atmospheric hangouts in the West Village.

Service: 

Considering how excellent the dishes are, I am surprised by the unfriendly servers. If they improve the place will be even more popular.

Location: 

On a lovely residential block in the West Village.

Price advice: 

With some main dishes for US$13 (like a hearty risotto), I think the place is quite a good deal.

Tables to book: 

Ask for a table in side room as the ones by the door are a little too close to other customers coming and going.
