big deal for nothing.. – mediocre wanna-retro place. they definitely need a change in attitude or some cold shower- grungy grungy ok but nothing much..
Refreshing and fun thai – Happened upon Lovely Day in "situation" when birthday party for 8 had not reserved elsewhere. They were most accommodating. They do take reservations for groups. Well prepared food. Funky decor inviting, fun atmosphere, a refreshing break away type place. Only negative was poor air conditioning on warm day. The group had such a good time it was not a real issue. Inexpensive and good.
Essential for a lovely day – I have been twice to this restaurant. I love it. I plan on stopping by next week as well. I found it on a cold night, the perfect spot to warm up. I recieved prompt service with a smile. To me it exemplifies Soho, cute, artsy, interesting. Definately check it out!!!
Great find – this is still one of my most favorite restaurants in the area the food is inexpensive but very good (kimono shrimp special was excellent) and has a great atmosphere. Can be a bit busy around peak times because of the size.
Hipster Joint – This place is a classic instance of an overrated, third rate new restaurant. The food was completely mediocre, even though the prices were on the lower side. With a few drinks, the tab can quickly add up. The service was among the worst I have ever experienced in New York - the waitstaff was too busy laughing with each other to pay any attention to the customers. A dirty dish was returned cleaned with a dirty rag and no apology.
Isn't it lover-ly? – What can be better than a good yet cheap noodle dish, candle light and a cozy vibe? If you have a date, this place is tops for first timers. Dishes are of median portion so you don't feel like a stuffed bird and it's reasonable enough to foot the bill. At prices under $10, it was a good enough meal. My date and I enjoyed the pan seared tuna appetizer. (small but good) The chow fun with shrimp had a sweet savory taste. Drinks like soda come in munchkin land size. As people started coming in, they were in pairs for some reason. Guess, it was a date night. And there was one waitress, so be warned on other busy nights for service. Otherwise, it was just lovely.
Nice Find – I was very pleased with Lovely Day. It does not try to be something its' not. The food was great and it was the perfect place to go after shopping with hordes of people on Broadway. The service was slow but so what, just don't go there if you are in a rush. Nice find.
