way over priced, they sent my sprite in a taped up plastic cup with watered down ice, and tons of garlic bread that completely leaked through the bag. $30 not well spent. more

Overpriced and pasta was not aldente, just not cooked enough, we ended recooking it as it was too hard to eat. more

Editorial review from GrubHub 1/17/2014

this place has high ratings (WHY) and delivers late, so i've accidentally ordered a couple times over the years it's delivered on time, but their pesto pasta is TERRIBLE: the sauce is tasteless, the potatoes are too raw, and the green beans are a the wrong vegetable to add to a pesto pasta dish the nutella dessert sandwich is literally bread with nutella and they charge like6 or 7 bucks for it, absurd. after writing this review and mentally reliving my previous bad experiences, im downgrading from a 2-star to a 1-star more

Editorial review from GrubHub 8/6/2013

Amazing when eating at the restaurant, but the delivery I got from there was horrible. Although I loved my experience when I ate at the restaurant, I will never ever order food from here again. Awful. more

Tasty! 2/21/2012

This place is delicious and the service was quick and friendly. more

Horrible hostess, poor management 7/22/2011

I went to Supper with my bridesmaids for my bachelorette dinner. We had made reservations days before arriving, however when we got there, the hostess told us ""someone had messed up our reservation"" and that our name was not on the reservation list. At that point, tired and hungry, we decided to take the next table. The table was next to the bar in a cramped corner right in front of the bathroom. I didn't want this to spoil our night so we decided to just have a good time regardless of the series of unprofessional, disorganized way they are running this place. No apologies were ever given for the mess up in reservations. They did give us a bottle of proseco complimentary and I thought this was a nice gesture, but I looked around the room to find that almost everyone there that night had proseco on their table, leaving me to believe we were not given any special compensation or treatment for their mistake. Now on to the food: mediocre at best. I had the bolognese, my friend the spaghetti with lemon and parmesan (horrible and unsatisfying)...only thing decent was the mozzarela/tomato appetizer however the portion was skimp and the mozzarela slices, although real and fresh, was small. I will never go back to this place. The hostess was apathetic at best, rude to be frank, and unprofessional. This goes to say a lot about the management who hired these people in the first place. more

fav bar fav restaurant 6/20/2011

Supper is the go to place for east village locals to grab a bite and a glass of wine. The food is good, the ambiance is chill and the people are cool. Sugo bar next door is connected to supper and is also very chill--one of my favorite places in the city. more

Watch out for their Twitter giveaways! 8/19/2010

Before the Hollywood festivities of last night, I had the pleasure of visiting a gem of an East Village restaurant. Through, Twitter, I have been privy to (and the winner of) many a contest. I recently started following @suppernyc, the twitter account of Supper Restaurant on 2nd Street and Ave. A. It turns out, every weekday at 2 p.m., the restaurant, and their sister establishments @lilfrankies at noon and @frankrestaurant at 1 p.m. do a twitter food giveaway. The first follower to retweet the posted message wins the entree of the day. Just my luck (which is good if you were curious), I won the Grilled Polenta entree. The catch is that you have to either have it delivered or pick it up that day during a specific time period. Since the delivery area is limited to the E. Village, I figured I would swing by on the way to the premiere. Even with my two years in the city, I'm ashamed to say I haven't truly explored the East Village, but I am working on it! Walking east on 2nd Street, I saw the cutest boutiques and some wonderful happy hour deals. What I found when I walked into Supper though, was perhaps the most fantastic. Several rustic outdoor tables greet you at first and then you walk inside to what reminds me of a log cabin with a bit of an edge - almost an rural chic feel, if such a thing exists (if it doesn't, I just created it). After telling the hostess that I was there because of the Twitter contest, she presented me with a glass of house red while I waited for my entree. I took a seat at the large wooden bar, checked in on Foursquare (have to spread the online love!), and began to drool over the rest of the menu I looked over. Supper offers a different risotto for every day of the week - could this be a more perfect place for me?! The most appealing, although I'm not sure if it is more of a dessert than an actual dinner, is Monday's Vanilla Bean and Mascarpone. I better clear my upcoming Monday schedules! What seems like their signature dinner option is called the ""Simple Supper."" From Mondays through Wednesdays from 4-7 p.m. you can get an appetizer and an entree for $15.95. You can add on a glass of wine or beer to that for just another $4. Their weekend brunch menu also looked very appealing; the Molly's French Toast with fresh fruit raspberry butter, toasted pecans and real maple syrup was highly recommended. In my haste to make it to the premiere, I know that I did not do my dish justice since I had to eat it on the subway. I didn't even get a chance to take a picture. However, I will take my sweet time describing it here. The polenta was among the lightest and most flavorful I've ever had, topped with fennel shavings and pieces of fresh Parmigiano cheese. It was accompanied by mouth watering Prosciutto di Parma and a small container of aged Balsalmic vinegar and olive oil. The crunchy-on-the-outside-but-soft-on-the-inside Italian bread that came with the meal was perfect for sopping up the extra oil and vinegar. With each bite, the subway car practically melted away and I felt like I was sitting outdoors at a table next to an Italian farmhouse, just watching the cows in the meadow and the sun setting over the hills. Needless to say, I didn't want the dish to end! So what are you waiting for? Follow these restaurants on Twitter today and tomorrow you could have a wonderful supper waiting for you! Keep in mind you can only win these giveaways once every 30 days, but you can bet that I'll be first in line in a month. more

Best restaurant in the city 5/10/2010

Everything is delicious and you can't beat the prices. If they have the Burrata Mozz special when you are there don't miss it. Pros: Best food this side of Italy Cons: ? more

Such a nice dinner spot 3/31/2010

Had a realllllyyy great girls night here. We were looking for something new, as always.. And we stumbled on this little gem. First of all, the space is amazing. SUCH good atmosphere.. really cozy, romantic, dim. It's a bit of a maze on the inside.. but in a good way. We were seated in the back area which consisted of a few sketchy staircases down.. but alas, the back space is just a cute as the front, if not better. We started with a bottle of champagne and began chatting away. Then for the food.. we devoured the white bean olive oil dip that was brought to the table. Then, being the foodies that we are, we of course all got appetizers, entrees and desserts. All the dishes we got were perfect portions. Served in bowls that I felt like came right out of my grandma's cupboard, it was enough to make you feel REALLY full, but not disgustingly full. hahah.. The desserts were awesome, we got this chocolate thing and our server came to the table with a pot of hot chocolate and poured it on from really high.. really neat presentation. They sent us complimentary dessert wine, which made the experience even more special. I would say the only minor ""meh"" of the night was that it was cash only. But I guess a lot of places in the city are these days.. wondering how all these restaurants get away with that. Overall, really really memorable night. Love this place, will def be back. Cons: cash only more

good food, good atmosphere 11/14/2009

My New Favorite Place 3/22/2009

I have been wanting to go to Supper for a long time but since it's not that easy to get to I have been putting it off. What a mistake - it is so worth a cab ride or walk to get to. We went a little before 8 and were told to wait in the bar next door - the bartender could not have been nicer - the wine was excellent and we had a little appetizer before going to the main restaurant. Supper is lively, so cozy with brick walls, tin ceilings and velvet curtains, and I would like to have the lemon spaghetti every day of my life. I will be bringing everyone I know here from now on - the service was excellent and the food even better. I can't imagine having anything bad to say about Supper - it's perfect!!! Pros: Bartender next door, food, coziness, everything Cons: It's far from my apartment on the Upper West Side more

Always busy 3/11/2009

This place is always pretty croweded for dinner so you have to wait at the adjoining bar which is usually not a problem but I was injured and had no where to sit for the 30 min wait and was obviously injured and nobody gave me their seat. The people can be kind of snooty... THe food there is amazing. It is better to go there than get home deliviery. Also, one of the best places I have been in the city for brunch. The french toast is AMAZING. Pros: great atmosphere and food. Cons: always crowded for dinner more

Beautiful Room for 12!!! 9/28/2008

I planned a dinner for 12 at Supper for a Saturday night at 7pm. At 7pm, 3 of our party had not yet arrived, but at 7:05, the hostess seated us anyway which I thought was really nice considering they are very explicit about their 10 minute table hold policy. But maybe they knew we respected their policy when we had our guests arrive at 6:45 for the 7:00 reservation. Pros: Great service, food...beautiful space for a large party!! Cons: NONE... more

Sweetest staff and best food in the hood 8/5/2008

Supper is a real treat in a neighborhood where service has gone to s@#$ . The staff are soo nice and the food is soo good. I can't say enough good things about this place. I've taken many new New Yorkers there and they fall in love and they take THEIR friends. The polenta is amazing, the brunches are incredible (the French toast is to die for) I have all my birthdays and get-togethers at Supper and each time they treat me and my friends better than the last. Enjoy a little Supper anytime. Cons: The only drawbacks are it is hard to get a table at night sometimes more

Still great food, Still great service, Still love it! 3/4/2008

I have been eating at Supper very regularly since I moved to New York 5 years ago as I live in the area. So.. they don't take reservations - if you're having a big group of people out for a birthday - be decent and book somewhere else for your friend instead of being a cheap a@s and then complaining about waiting on a Saturday night in the East Village as one of the reviewers below states. Who goes out in Manhattan with a large group on a Saturday night for a special occasion without a reservation?? Duh!!! The bar next door is small, but if you are being served by the great gorgeous bartender Wade, you'll get a drink quickly and topped up regularly and you will be totally taken care of. The back-room is a little quieter but as for your chair being kicked as people go past to the toilets (as per another whiney reviewer..) the table for 2 (which I have sat at many times is in front of no more than 4 other chairs - so that's hardly the stomping crowd they mention. Michael and the other hosts are organised and just doing their job and have always been wonderful to me and my crew. The food is always fantastic and plenty of it - I always leave with a doggy bag. Service? What do you want guys? The place is busy, extremely reasonable - the waitstaff are there to take your orders quickly, get your food to you and if it's very busy, they often ask if it's OK to bring the check, so as for waiting for a check... purrrlease!!! The weeknights are definitely less crowded but the food and service is consistent 7 days a week. The downside of the weekends is that the WHINEY, COLLEGE BRIDGE AND TUNNEL KIDS are around. If you don't want a piece of Manhattan, stay in Bayridge so the rest of us can enjoy this great East Village restaurant. Pros: Great service, Great food, Great value Cons: Bridge & Tunnel Crowds Friday and Saturday nights more

Don't get stuck in the back room unless you're in a group! 11/25/2007

The food was great - nothing too fancy or flashy, just really tasty food with a ""home cooked"" feel. I had the mozzarella and tomato salad which was really fresh and delicious and then the gnocchi afterwards - real comfort food! I was a bit disappointed with my hazelnut pannacotta but I think it was really because I was just too full to enjoy it properly. The ""by consumption"" wine list is a brilliant concept as it means you drink as much as you want without the dilemma of whether to order a second bottle when you're just getting to your dessert... Pros: Tasty food Cons: The back room (unless you're in a group) more

Italian Done Right 6/20/2007

First impression, Godfather meets vampire dungeon. And then you hear Coldplay, which is great yet having the occurring thought this is out of place. Front section of the restaurant has a lighter feel with 4 outdoor tables, and a bar table to observe cooks making your meal, very cool. Must mention, the waiter had a similar resemblance to Anthony Bourdin! Have the salsa cruda and calamari appetizer, you'll love it. And then share a 'Special of the Week' and a pasta dish, it`ll wash over you with content! I think that`ll follow nicely. Pros: Outdoor Seating, Wine, Service, Quick Seating Cons: Cash Only, Reservations Null more

Love this place 3/24/2007

I have been to Supper countless times since it opened and while I've waited and it's been crowded, the food has always been so good that I didn't really care. When a place is as consistently excellent and well priced as Supper is it's going to get crowded. That's the way it is. The food is well worth the hassle. The calamari is fantastic, the meat special no matter what it is is always delicious and the lasagna is irresistable. I love the vibe of the restaurant. It's so homey and rich with texture. It's just a great place to have dinner. I would recommend going during the week and not at prime time if you want to avoid the sardine hipster thing. more
