RUDE! STAY AWAY!! 5/14/2011

I have never seen a place with such service!!!! Bad, bad, bad!!!! Beware of this place! They charge you for drinks that you have never order. It happened to me and my friends on two separate occasions. The rude waitress/bartender said that we must have been confused!! Well my friend had only had two Molotov cocktails, and the waitress made us pay for 3. What happened to customer being right?? I understand being confused when you have 5-6 cocktail but not 2!!! The waitress messed something up and made us pay for it. Half an hour before that, our friends were leaving the bar and guess what happened? They had 2 extra drinks on their tab and the same RUDE waitress was trying to convince them that they were wrong. Never going there again!!! For $200 that we spent there for 5 people that was some way to treat its customers!!! more

Sghetti ""Jherk"" Jam 9/29/2009

So me and my girl go in on a Sunday as we have an occasional habit of doing -- we love the spaghetti and meatballs there so much. We order two drinks, the tortilla chips and want to share the spaghetti. 20 minutes roll. We ask where our chips are, the waiter leaves and someone comes 5 minutes later with the chips. 10 minutes roll. We ask were the sghetti is and one dude says they had a fire in the kitchen but that they will have it in 10 if we wait. We wait 15 minutes then some dude shows up with chips again. im like ""no, we want our sghetti not chips, we had those already while ago"" hes like ""talk to a manager"". im like ""why?"" leaves, then Caribbean Queen comes over says, ""oh we had a fire in the kitchen, do you still want your meal cuz it will take 15-20"" im like ""uh, someone promised that before and was supposed to bring it long ago, you could have told us it was not gonna be ready for nearly an hour. Thats too long now. Its 930 and we gotta eat and go home so please comp these chips and well pay for the two rum and cokes and go.I mean, chips cost nothing, but they do cost like 9 bux here."" shes like ""oh no, nobody else asked for anything why should you?"" im like ""uh...wait a minute, we are not everybody else, we are the folks talking to you right now, this is a huge inconvenience and we are going home hungry."" shes like ""well, its an inconvenience for us that the kitchen be broken so it no matter you are inconvenience"" I could reset the kitchen on fire now...""listen, im walking outta here. You just lost yourself a loyal customer."" shes all ""jherk"" chicken and says ""we have plenty customer."" No tip. wow. i guess i'll miss the food if i dont go back. just hope its one of the cool folks next time. Pros: Amazing Spaghetti and Meatballs Cons: The worst service in the universe, sometimes. more

Neighborhood gem! 7/13/2009

Daddy O is a great find. Fantastic food and drinks with specialty cocktails, amazing food and late night service. I am obsessed with the bartenders, they're extremely friendly and good to their regulars. I lived across the street for two years and still miss the chicken sandwich!! Pros: chicken sandwich, tator tots, cheeseburgers, bloody marys Cons: can be crowded more

wrong owner 3/4/2009

I am a fan of Steve Crain and Po too and live in his building. I know he has not been involved in Daddio for a long time now. I can't review Daddio because I don't go anymore. more

Daddy-NO -- avoid this place 2/14/2009

I am shocked that this place is still open when there are so many other good choices in the neighborhood for a drink. I recently dropped in randomly with a few friends for a drink and went to use the bathroom before ordering. While I was gone, the bartender yelled at my friends that the restrooms were for customers only and that we had to order a drink first so that we would be ""customers"" (which they did). A few minutes later, one of my friends (a petite girl) politely confronted the bartender about his rudeness, the bartender flipped out, started yelling and shining a flashlight in her eyes, and physically pushed her out of the bar (this guy was big and buff and clearly in some sort of 'roid rage). When I asked him to calm down I received the same treatment. I have had better experiences at the seediest dives around the city. I love Po and it especially disappoints me that Steve Crane would tolerate such terrible behavior from his employees. Avoid. Pros: ? Cons: Mediocre bar with the worst customer service ever more

worst bar in the city, horrible service, bartenders are rude 12/2/2008

This place is awful. I agree with the person regarding service. I went there with my boyfriend for a few drinks on a weekend night. They made my drink horribly wrong. My bf went to bartender I ordered it from and asked him nicely if they could remake it or add more ""ketal one"" vodka to my dirty martini because it tasted like olive juice only (disgusting). The bartender smirked and splashed some other vodka in the glass instead and said something rude. I don't know about other service there, but this was the worst service I have ever received in the city. We should have just gone to the bar across the street--the Village Tavern. more

Fantastic Cocktails & Food! 9/21/2008

Stopped in with some friends for a burger & beer. Beer ? good, Burger ? SUPERB! The food exceeded our expectations, 2 people in our group ordered the catfish sandwiches ? EXCELLENT! The staff was attentive, professional & friendly. We noticed their specialty cocktail list on the wall & had to try some. I had an amazing Cilantro based Mojito (I can?t remember the exact name) ? never had anything like it before, absolutely delicious. The bartender makes the cocktails in a very ?old school? style which was terrific! Nothing but good things to say about this place. We will DEFINITELY be back! Pros: Great Food & Service more

not a great place 7/29/2007

I used to love this bar. I went there quite often. However, they have a new bartender and I will never go there again. I had some friends in town visiting, and suggested we go to Daddy-o as a nice end to our night out. Told my friends they would love this place. We ordered a couple of drinks and the bartender messed up two of them. My friend went back to get them remade and the bartender started yelling and swearing at my friend in front of everyone at the bar (it's not a loud place). Totally UNACCEPTABLE. Had we been rowdy, well maybe I could understand being yelled at. But my friend just nicely asked to have the drinks remade, it's not like we asked for a free round or anything. I complained to the owner of the bar a short time later to let him know that his employee was disrespecting customers, and he didn?t really seem to care. I guess losing only one customer in New York City is not such a big deal. I really felt bad a scene was made with my friend at the center and will not recommend this place to anyone again. Cons: service more

Cool place to relax and have a few 4/3/2007

This is a great place to swing by if you're in the neighborhood... I wouldn't make it a desination for a night out, but it's got a great vibe that feels like home (without the couches) Pros: Very relaxed vibe without being a total dive more

One of my favorites 1/5/2007

I'm not sure about that last post, but everytime I've been to Daddy-O's, it's been such a great time. Granted, I only go on Sundays, so I'm not sure how it is on the weekends, but it's such a chill place with insanely good food (which I wasn't really expecting at a bar) and a good beer selection. It's mostly locals, so the atmosphere is really relaxed, and the bartender are attentive without being overbearing. I would just say (at least on a Sunday), don't go here for a crazy loud time, go to relax, drink, talk, and have some good food. Pros: relaxing, great food, romantic on off-nights more

avoid 12/17/2006

WARNING! DO NOT ENTER THIS BAR! I waited over an hour today for a well below average BLT and a $5 glass of bad oj. Wait staff is rude/scary. Daddy O's = bad time for all involved. more

Excellent drinks, food and service 10/28/2006

Great Brunch 5/9/2005

Great little place....dark wood, cozy. Wonderful brunch! Best french toast i've had in manhattan. Bloody Marys are a bit strong, but we know that for next time. And I couldn't believe how cheap the bill was! Pros: Inexpensive, Good Portions, Friendly Staff Cons: Dark Inside more

HORRIBLE 12/13/2002

Stay away! Not only are the drinks overpriced, but the staff is untrustworthy (one gave my credit card left behind the bar to a stranger with no id who then went on a shopping spree)! BAD, BAD, BAD! more

An awesome place 7/30/2002

Excellent liquor selection-- surprisingly good, actually. Top-notch and unique tequilas, grappas, scotch, etc, as well as really good wine by the glass. Good basics too... you can never go wrong here. Great bartenders, very good food (try the chickn tacos), and an overall very friendly, local vibe. This is the type of place you can go alone to and never feel lonely. Pros: Friendly, Great food, Great liquor Cons: Sometime smokey, Can get crowded more

  • It's the gentrified West Village's version of a regular folks pub. The corner space is relaxed enough for game-watching and grubbing on standards like Tater-Tots, wings and chicken fingers, but...
