Poor management, bad place 7/10/2010

This place can not fulfill the simplest requirement of honoring a reservation and the hostess is the worst I've ever had to deal with. A few weeks ago the day before my reservation (made 2 weeks before) I called to confirm as they did not call me. They said they could not find it and gave me another one 1h earlier. I said fine but the surprise came when they asked us to leave because they had another reservation and did not leave us the choice. We were here to watch a game and could not do so. I just learned that a friend of mine had the same pbm and she even received a confirmation email. The hostess lied on the phone saying she did not have it!! The food was mediocre as was the service so definitely NOT WORTH IT! Cons: So many... more

Attacked By Manager 11/5/2009

I friend suggested we meet here for drinks. What a MISTAKE. I arrive, lock-up my bike curbside to a newly planted tree. I walk in with a smile and was immediately confronted by a woman flailing her arms and yelling at me. She demanded that I move my bike because I was ""kiliing her tree"". She exclaimed that she is the Manager. My bike has a Centermount Kickstand and stands completely erect. I placed a 1-lb U-lock around the tree, causing it no stress or pain. I tried to calmly and rationally explain this to her but she was just not listening. Out of courtesy to my friend, I proceeded to have drinks. The wine was good, but the service was poor, and when you're spending $10.00 on each glass of wine, you expect more from the staff. Strangely, there were also flies hovering over our table. It was almost like a Seinfeld episode. Bottom line, there are a plethora of other restaurants in the area that will welcome you and your business better. Oh, and on my way out, the manager made sure to get in one more rude comment, then wished us a good night. Pros: Location Cons: rude ruDE rUDE-Oh, and did I mention RUDE! more

Going strong 8/24/2009

Felix is Brazilian French fusion that makes it a standout for people in the mood to enjoy mojitos and eggs florentine while listening to high energy samba mixed house on a Sunday afternoon. Great crowd and serivce was good ... ignore the other reviews this place rocks more

Overly hyped,service bad, waiters unfriendly - go to McDees! 5/24/2009

My friends and I made a reservation at 3pm on a Saturday (actual date was 16th of May '09). Two fellows were sitting at a table and were just talking and drinking up their cocktails. We were already standing in queue for 30 minutes after 3 o'clock, and we complained to the manager to which she replied: ""these people are paying over 200 bucks"". Suddenly the waiter went to their table, making them leave. So first they kicked the poor guys out and then they even p*ssed us off when we asked for why our table wasn't cleared at 3pm when it was supposed to be?! - This was probably a bad start, now you think it will get better? Think again. But to make the long story short the food was okay, the service was bad. It took them hours to bring our food. The waiter did not even know who ordered which and he mixed it up. At the end we were figuring out our bill. The waitress sarcastically asked us if we were having problems with the bill or was she really telling us to hurry and get out. Like the two poor people before us, a waiter also came to our table and said that there was a group watiing for the table so we had to leave. How RUDE is that? If your plan is to go there - rather go McDees, their food is equally average, cheaper, waiters are friendlier, and you won't be thrown out after 25 minutes. Pros: food average Cons: takes forever to be seated even with reservation more

Um, skip it . . . go down the street and eat somewhere else instead. 8/26/2008

I could not agree more with the last two reviewers? comments and complaints. If I didn?t have a job stopping me from doing so, I would voluntarily stand outside of Felix and direct potential patrons elsewhere ALL day and night. A friend and I went there last night and were so disappointed we were tempted to just throw a $50 on the table without even waiting for the dawdling waitress to bring the check. The server spoke almost no English and had to ask my friend for his drink order FOUR times, (a vodka gimlet ? not exactly a feat of modern mixology) before walking away just shaking her head. Our food, which was brought to the table even before our water glasses were filled with dirty tap water, was abominable. His salmon tartare could not have looked, smelled or tasted less appetizing short of coming out of a Fancy Feast can. My miniscule chunks of burnt goat cheese were only marginally more edible. Do yourself a favor if in the neighborhood: Go to Lucky Strike or Cafe Noir, both on the same block, and both much much better. Pros: Location Cons: Also location -- close to much better places. Food, service. more

WORST service ever 8/17/2008

Waiter was extremely rude from the moment we were seated. I ordered a cup of coffee, which was never refilled (neither were the glasses of water at the table). We had to ask for the bill 3 times--be prepared to pay in cash. Food was ok--there are many other restaurants in the city with much better food and infinitely better service. more

Felix is not a happy place, no matter its titular suggestion. 3/30/2008

In a city where being the exception is the only route to success, I sympathize with the challenges of proprietors of a mediocre restaurant whose only draw is location. The food is mediocre; the service the worst I have ever had the displeasure of submitting to. We told our waiter we had come to eat appetizers, drink, and sample the dessert menu. Before I chewed the last fry, another waiter came to take the empty plates. We asked to see a dessert menu. One of the waitstaff curtly refused us our dessert, suggesting our conception of a meal was nothing more than barroom ?munchy.? Frustratingly, upon trying to re-order dessert, our initial waiter re-iterated the restaurant?s need to free our two top (seating three). We should have just left. But this affront to our modest expectations of hospitality ignited within us an obstinate need to complete our meals as we had originally intended: with dessert. We noticed a smiling exception to the waitstaff who finally took our order. I found the manager and explained my consternation at the audacity of the waiter?s treating us like he was a bouncer at a college bar. Focused on cleaning his eyeglasses, he shrugged and mumbled something without making eye contact that didn?t sound like an apology but more like an admonishment for our concept of a night out, reminding me it was a Saturday night. I have never come across such a disregard of basic human hospitality and manners. I recognize the need to turn tables. But I also recognize what should be the overwhelming priority of hospitable decorum. Not only was it downright rude to threaten to kick us out of the restaurant, it doesn?t make any sense in terms of dollars. Happily, many Manhattan restaurants still prescribe to standards of service and etiquette, and we were able to salvage our Saturday night. I urge any readers of my paltry review to forego Felix?s average food and terrible service. In other words, don?t go there. more

Mediocre service, food 3/25/2008

I stumbled upon this place with friends last Easter Sunday and couldn't have had more fun at the bar. So this year we decided to eat there as well and make a day of it. The location is cool, and the room is fun, even though space is tight. Our waiter was a total sweetheart but forgot our water, brought more cocktails when we didn't ask, etc. The food came out quick and it was not good. My fries were soggy and eggs benedict extremely runny. Ugh, I'm still thinking about it. They couldn't get our tab closed fast enough, but I understood that because the place was crazy busy. We closed the tab and continued to drink at the bar. That was fun, the bartender was very cute. Overall I think this place is ""cool"" in terms of its vibe and the fact that everyone there is French, but when it comes down to it, the service and food are absolutely nothing to write home about. Pros: Cool French vibe, downtown hipsters Cons: Bad food, spotty service more

horrible horrible waitress 2/2/2008

first of all, food was okay for regular brunch but there are so many other places to go for so much better service with that level of food in NYC. Simply, we were still eating when this waitress threw the check on our table without saying whenever you are ready or anything. She was just keep checking our table giving us this look to leave, finally i asked her if she meant us stop eating and leave and she said she just trying to turn table as much as she could but hello, your customer has not even finished their food and the food arrived 10 min ago. more

People Watching yes, and good food! 1/24/2008

The place is packed on a Sat afternoon, but it is great for people watching. Personally, I really did like this place, the restaurant has a trendy feel and yummy food. Nothing too heavy, where you feel sick after leaving. The wines are great too... I recommend this place to everyone! more

DON'T LISTEN TO THE HATERS 12/5/2007

The service at Felix suffers due to the fact that the place is always packed with people. If your looking to go out and have a great time and socialize you found the right place. Best time to go is for weekend brunch. The food, drinks, and atmosphere are great. Pros: Great place to meet people and hang out Cons: Service is tough sometimes more

Service= CACA 8/18/2007

Our server was absolutely horrible. So enticing is the decor and atmosphere, but don't be fooled. The music is just loud enough to drown out all of the buzz about how bad the service is. The busboy acted as our stand-in server, taking our order, bringing us water, bread and drinks upon our polite requestS. I really felt bad leaving any kind of tip. As retired waitresses, we never leave anything less than 20%. I really hope it all went to Miguel; he was nice. Maybe the servers were cast members of the Real World? Not even that cute.... Pros: music, decor, food Cons: service more

Painful dining experience 11/17/2006

Worst service and food experience since moving to NYC in 2 years. Only fact about this restaurant is pricey meal. The service was disturbingly below average and meal not worth finishing.....just wanted to leave. Looks like a cozy, friendly place to drop in but will never make that mistake again and felt compelled to warn other diners. more

French Bistro - brunch food 6/11/2006

Everytime I have been there it is a disaster in the service, food quality has gone down and they make you wait an hour , run up a tab at the bar only for no table in sight.. We had a huge argument with them last time and refused to pay the bar tab if they didnt seat us and we were seated right away, but I swore never to go back there... Cons: bad food, service and small restaurant more

Brunch Disaster 6/10/2006

Here's the scene. World Cup. We make reservations 3 weeks in advance and walk in 5 minutes after the game starts to find we have no table. We get berated and lectured about being 5 minutes late. It takes 30 minutes to get coffee, 40 minutes to get our order taken and are told we can choose from 4 Items. We choose and 30 minutes later, we are served. Unfortunately, my meal is wrong. Our coffee was never refilled, the food was mediocre at best and the staff was rude and arrogant. 75.00 later (2 people) we decided we would never give Felix another dime. A prix fix menu and you still can't give us decent service? No thanks. Go elsewhere. These staffers are far too into themselves and each other to care about your dining experience. Pros: Great Locale Cons: Immature and inexperienced staff, lousy food, very expensive more

Not Worth the Hype 2/18/2006

Decent food BUT the service was horrible. We had reservations and were seated immediately - good start. But then we were completely forgotten. Requests for drinks were repeated over and over (including water); then after waiting well over an hour we were told that they forgot to put our order in! Their desserts were limited - I mean REALLY limited to 2 items (nothing like the online menu). And then, after being treated like we were invisible, after our bill was paid for, the hostess came down on our table like a hawk and told us that we had to leave immediately as there were others waiting. Others waiting. All of a sudden we were visible and not even given the courtesy of 5 minutes to get our coats on. I wonder if those people waiting had to WAIT well over an hour for their food, too! Cons: poor service, crowded, rushed more

Don't pay with a credit card ... 10/17/2005

Sunday is funday but make sure to bring cash .. it looks like they like to add a little too much on the receipt .... more

Excellent brunch- trendy crowd!!! 8/1/2005

We were surprised how packed it was on an august Sunday yet in 30 min we had a table. The eggs Florentine and the spinach with goat cheese are really good. Price was reasonable and the hip crowed realises a positive and vibrant energy. It's great for a sunny, breezy day as the breeze blows from all angles of the ceiling-tall window doors. It was a very enjoyable spontaneous experience for two gals looking to catch up on their news. Pros: Food, Ambience, People watching more

Great ambience and brunch 1/28/2005

We had chosen with my wife and friends Felix for our Sunday brunch, and we were very pleased with the food (fantastic omelettes and eggs benedicte) and the ambience (lots of people, good spirit) ; so overall, a great place, better than many restaurants around. Don't forget your reservation if you plan to come on a Sunday. Pros: food, ambience Cons: waitERS more
