fav place in SoHo 8/22/2004

The food here is absolutely amazing. The ribeye and pork is to die for. Not to mention the out of this world watermelon martinis. The service is always great. I actually rented the entrie restaurant for a private party in May and our entire guest list RAVED about this place. Patricia the owner was a doll to work with. I highly recommend! Pros: best martinis more

terrible 7/20/2004

After several positive visits to Pfiff, I went with a group of 4, and they managed to make a mistake with every dinner. We all ate at different times, with one person eating after everyone else had finished. From cold mashed potatoes to hot sauce on sandwiches that never had any before, the experience was a disaster. Maybe the management changed, but I will definately never return following this dining experience. Pros: location, space Cons: , service more

Worst Experience 7/20/2004

The service was terrible + the food was (BEYOND) awful. It took over an hour to be served. When the food did finally arrive each person received their meal within a 20 min. of each other. That's correct the 4th person had to wait over 2 hrs. 2 eat! In add. after each person was served their meal they had to return because it was either cold, over cooked, or completely wrong altogether. Mgt. came over and gave a simple shrug at our complainants and felt that four drinks would make up for our frustration. The problem is when you're waiting 2 hours to eat there was nothing 2 do but drink. The last thing we wanted after this 3 hour mess was another round. We did pay our bill, we did leave a 10% tip, we also left a promise to never return or recommend this place to anyone! Cons: , bad management more

Yummy! 7/29/2003

I was delightfully surprised with the food at this place. Sausage, risotto, spring rolls are recommended as appetizers. This is the first place in a long time that I have eatten a steak that was cooked just right, u know a steak is good when you can cut it with a butter knife! The Lamb, crabcakes and seafood pasta was great as well. I highly recommend this place too all.I'd like to mention the great bartender (Sprioe) a bartender who remembers your drinks all night is a big plus! more

Love Pfiff! 5/17/2003

Highly recommend the risotto. The salmon over whipped chive potatoes is great too. And don't forget cocktails! Overall, I think Pfiff is great, and can't understand some of the reviews I've read that say otherwise. Pros: Food, Atmosphere, Decor Cons: Service can be slow more

overpriced for what you got 5/2/2003

For the money there are much nicer placers to go in soho. it's not a bad place but completely mediocre. Pros: pretty restaurant Cons: overpriced, generic, mediocre more

No pretention 2/3/2003

I was overwhelmed. The food and service; fantastic, the dj; sublime. I was there to celebrate my birthday on a Saturday evening. I cannot imagine having more fun. The best is that in this small space, the lights dim and the volume of the music increases. You look over and your server is shaking it with the rest of the staff and your friends. No pretention and that's saying a lot for this neighborhood. Oh yeah the lychee martini is the way to go....... more

Nice dinner spot 12/18/2002

This place was really cool to chill over dinner and drinks and talk. I had a really nice time. Pros: Great service, not too crowded, good/quiet after-work more

Euro Trash Charm 11/21/2002

The decor reeks of national socialism meets bauhaus. Wear your studded belts, tight blue jeans and black loafers to this over emphasized under-indulged flop house. By the way, the food was to die for. Try the shepards pie and sticky toffee pudding. Pros: Proper Football on TV, Union Jack Flies High Cons: Corporate Parties more

Finally, a Soho restaurant that has good 9/26/2002

This is definately a place that will be added to the lunch rotation. Good food, nice place, friendly staff all for a fair price. Pros: Inexpensive, Friendly, Good Food Cons: Limited/tight seating more

HIGHLY RECOMMEND 9/16/2002

I HIGHLY recommend going to Pfiff. The happy hour has 2 for 1 drinks, the owners/waitstaff are very friendly and attentive, the food was amazing (I highly recommend the vegetable tart - melt in your mouth good), it has a great vibe with hip music, candle light and an eclectic crowd. I work around the corner and have had the pleasure of speaking with both the owners, waitstaff and chef (who has some amazing ideas for the fall menu) and I have never enjoyed myself with so much hospitality, good conversation, intriguing strangers, drinks specials, warm vibes. Give it a try (right by the A,C,E,1,9) Pros: Great staff, vibe, Happy Hour, Wonderful Food Cons: On the smaller side more

Restaurant out of control 7/29/2002

I went to Pfiff a couple of weeks ago. I was NOT impressed, the over all atmosphere SUCKED! We started at the bar where the bartender took his sweet time serving us because he was flirting with the chicks at the bar.(How Unprofessional and RUDE.And that is why he got no tip)There was hardly anyone there and we understand why.The waitstaff was hospitable but seemed a bit lost and into themselves.They spoke amongst each other the whole time we were there and hung out at the bar. We had to keep flagging them down. Never again! Pros: we got out of there A Cons: waitstaff,too clicky, bartender too flirty,, and unattentive to me more

worth a visit 7/17/2002

stopped by yesterday on a whim, after cruising W. Bdway for restaurants. . was pleasantly surprised, the schnitzel was damn good and our waiter was top notch. . he forgot our ketchup at one point but was effusively apologetic and immediately gave us some. Some cons: it was humid as hell last nite and our corner table was a bit uncomfortable, however it was cool by the bar where the AC was. Also, although the food was good, I don't think it would be any better than the dozen or so restaurants within a 3 block radius. Service was what made this place stand out. I do think Cafe Noir across the street is still better in terms of giving off that Francophile-Moroccan feeling, though. Pros: Service, Location, Ambience Cons: Spotty AC, generic menu more

COOL AND FRIENDLY SPOT 6/7/2002

I WENT TO PFIFF LAST WEEK WITH A GROUP OF FRIENDS, AND WE HAD A GREAT TIME. THE FOOD WAS AMAZING, I TRIED A BEAUTIFUL SPECIAL CRAB CAKE AND THE MUSHROOM RISOTTO.ESPECTACULAR!!!!! THEY HAVE THE MOST ORIGINAL DRINKS IN THE WHOLE AREA,I COULDN T STOP DRINKING WATERMELON MARTINIS, THE STAFF WAS REALLY FRIENDLY AND POLITE, AND THE OWNER WAS VERY NICE WITH US, I WOULD TOTALLY COME BACK!!!! I DIDNT CARE IF IT WAS SMOKY, CAUSE I ACTUALLY SMOKE, AND BESIDE THAT THE OWNER TOLD US THAT HER CAT S NAME WAS SMOKY, SO WHAT DO YOU EXPECT? more

Mislead by reviews 5/24/2002

I actually went here becase of the rating it received on City Search. Its really not all that great, or that cheap. I didn't think the food was anything to get excited over. I would have rather spent $10 more someplace else and got a lot more out of my dinner. The portions weren't all that generous either, the spring roll I had was cut on an angle to make it look bigger. The service was friendly but I would never go back. Pros: Nice Staff Cons: Food wasn't that good, Small menu selection more
