TERRIBLE ... DO NOT GO HERE! – TERRIBLE SERVICE, Not so good food.
I came here for lunch with three friends. We only had an hour for lunch because we had to be back for class. We ordered as soon as we sat down so that we would be out on time. As we were waiting for our food the dark haired manager there ran some other customers stroller into the back of my friends chair, and did not even appologize. Our food came out about 25 minutes later, and when it did my mushroom frittata was disgusting, I tried to eat it but simply could not. The restaurant was not very busy, but I could not get our servers attention for more that 10 minutes. I tried to see if the bus boy could get her but he never did so I got up and got her. I decided to just order the pancakes now, because that could take long right... they are pancakes... well 16 minutes later... still no pancakes, so I simply let the manager know that I would not be able to wait any longer for them. She went up to the kitchen window and very loudly she said to the cook " we dont need to pancakes anymore...and dont worry its not your fault ITS HERS" and she glared over at me. Not only was my food bad but two of my friends order the same sandwich and it had no flavor at all. They both asked for some dressing of some sort to put on it to spice it up, which of course was a pain for the server. DO NOT GO HERE! You will regret it!
HORRIBLE SERVICE MEDIOCRE FOOD AT HIGH PRICES – Wont go again
Flavorless price gouging in a lovely stark chic setting – I would say zero stars but the fantastic marinara dipping sauce (served with wretched calamari) with fresh garlic was so fantastic, i'll give this place one star.
as a goodwill gesture to my fellow man, i beg everyone DO NOT GO HERE or else you're wasting your money! don't get the Prix Fixe for $25 because you will have to stop next door at Subway to actually eat something or else you'll walk in as hungry as you walked out! Calamari was horrible, total rubber, not fresh. The breading on calamari was great but the actual calamari inside was just awful. Not just bad, but awful! However, it got worse. The entree was the worst. I got the pesto gnocchi with potatoes which was ABSOLUTELY FLAVORLESS. i did not feel comfortable enough to complain because i was alone and in a rush trying to see a show in 45 minutes around the corner on Walker St but i was so mad at myself for dropping the $30 (incl tip) on such CRAPPY food that i wanted to cry. You could not pay me to eat here again. Lovely building, vibe, design and service but if you actually are HUNGRY, don't waste your money here. The 3rd part of my prix fixe 'trio' was the ricotta cheesecake. I'd gotten that to go because i was so angry at this point that i just decided to leave. it took FOREVER just to get a slice of cheesecake wrapped up for me to take with me. Ridiculous. i have never left a restaurant so angry. the only reason i gave this ANY stars was that the ricotta cheesecake was DELICIOUS. really stellar. sadly though, the restaurant managed to foul up again by giving me THE SADDEST, smallest slice of cheesecake EVER in this ridiculously GIGANTIC takeout container. so after carrying around this huge takeout container all night, i finally did get home and thought, ok, i hope this ricotta cheesecake is worth the overpriced $30 dinner....it was like 2 bites....RIDICULOUS.
i gave this place a fair chance. i wanted to like it. i just wish i hadn't ordered the prix fixe. the other option i considered was ordering just one entree, maybe the lasagna, i thought. but i love calamari and i THOUGHT this place could do it right. but NO. so please people, do NOT WASTE your money. i am still so angry about getting screwed over and knowing i'll never get my $30 back....and ironically, i'm still starving.
wanna be still hungry when you leave? wanna walk out feeling like someone f-ed you without lube? wanna leave utterly unsatisfied? THEN EAT AT BREAD TRIBECA!
The Best Chicken Salad in Town – Best Chicken Salad in town. Delicious skirt stake salad. Should you be in the mood for seafood, their octopus meal is memorable, you will go back for it again. They also have a great bottle of Rioja, if you care. Best way to spend a long lunch in a trendy Tribeca spot, close to everything. Not to destroy their coffee sales, but get the coffee after your meal next door at La Colomba, the uncontested best coffee in NYC. Sit by the bar, and get taken care of attentive staff. Very highly recommend it.
We have eaten there several times and also have had delivery - food very average - nothing inspiring, but it is comfort food. Loved the white beans.
LIKED IT GOOD PLACE TO EAT – I REALY THOUGHT IT WAS GOOD. IT CAN BEE A LITTLE PRICEY BUT WORTH THE TRY. I WILL TRY IT AGAIN IN THE FUTIRE.
Too pricey for a neighborhood place! – It used to be a good neighborhood restaurant, but it has now priced itself out of the market - $20 for an average plate of pasta is just too much! The decor is fine, but the seasoning on the entrees is not great, and the service is just OK - at this price-point, I expect better.
Average dining in Tribeca – I did not like Bread Tribecca. I dined there last night for the first time. The room was nice, the lighting was pleasant and the location convenient, and the company lovely, however, that is where this positive review ends. The food was too rich, too greasy, and just not lovingly prepared by a knowledgeable chef. The service was average. The wine was average. The atmosphere was average. In a city like New York a diner with standards can do much better than this. Do not waste your time.
Best restaurant ever!!!!! – Me and my husband, my best friends and my neighbous go to Bread Trbeca all the time. It is a very busy and very popular place, so sometimes, even us being regulars, we have to wait for a table for 30 minutes, because that;s what happens with great places that serve great food! And trust me: it's well worth the wait! I have been coming there with my husband for 4 years now and sometimes the place is completely overflown by people and sometimes we had to wate but everybody there has been more than nice and polite to us and the food was well worth the wait! We live around the corner and Bread Tribeca is our favorite place in the whole neighborhood. As far as I am concerned: I worked in restaurants in NYC through out college and I know that sometimes things can go bad but - I love Bread Tribeca and everybody in the neighbourhood loves it too. Amazing food and great customer care a far as I am concerned.
Poor Service, Bigotry of Staff – The staff at this place are bigots. We were there as a group of 6 last weekend. The waiter, a dark-haired Italian looking guy in his 40's, did not even bring over water for 10 minutes after we were seated. Another waitress dropped a glass that shattered on the floor, spraying water and shards of broken glass on my wife and I. No apology was made. When the waiter finally did bring the water, one of the glasses were knocked over. He did not return with any paper towels to dry our table. The famous bread and oil arrived at our table at the same time as our sandwiches. Overall the experience was horrible and when we left only 12% tip, the waiter in a very loud voice, meant to be heard by all of us, stated "these cheap fuc*ing Indians always leave bad tips". We asked for the manager to discuss our experience but were told by the girl who seated us that he was not available. We will never go to this restaurant again and recommend all to stay away.
