a gem – I am lucky enough to live right down the block from this restaurant . The food is always fresh and delightful. the ambience is romantic and quaint. I love this restaurant.
Great place to go for a quiet meal – My girlfirend took me to here last night, and I was really impressed. The restaurant is on a quiet street, and you would never think that there was such a great place to eat there. The place was quiet and romantic. I thought the lamb chops were excellent, as was the goat cheese truffles we started with. The food was tasty, was of high quality and was presented well. And the service was great too. The wait staff paid attention when we needed something, but never spoiled the mood by being overbearing. I only wish we had time for dessert! Since it was cold outside, we didn't have an opportunity to sit in the garden that everyone is raving about, but I definitely want to go back to check it out along with the desserts! I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a good romantic meal on Staten Island.
Good choice for romantic night – Go to Aesop's Tables for a romantic night out in their wonderful garden and enjoy some delicious new-American food and some decent wine. Some of the dishes are hit or miss (bbq duck spring rolls = hit, pork tenderloin in sour cherry sauce = miss) but all in all it is a very enjoyable night. The service is good and the garden makes you feel like you are dining in a world far away from SI. You may pay a little more than you normally would on SI but it is still cheaper than Manhattan. Go and see for yourself.
Lovely... – A great place for a cool summer evening meal. Eating outside in the garden was a treat. The food was inspired and the service was great... I'm looking forward to my next time here.
Phenomenal – The food and mood of Aesop's Tables are on equal par of greatness. (To be fair, I may be elevating it slightly because in Staten Island, although there are many good restaurants, there isn't much in the way of innovation as far as dining-out selections go). My husband and I have been there at least a dozen times over the years since they've been open and have always been treated to the same fantastic food. The garden is particularly nice on warm days -- a fantastic oasis in which to take refuge after a long week. Good wine selection, excellent desserts from Brooklyn's Little Red Hen. The service can be a little hovering sometimes, but it's better than being ignored! Great French bistro feel inside -- the window displays are always a treat to look at, too.
Aesope's Do's~~ – Do make the customer and his girlfriend wait 1 hour and 30 minutes - EVEN with a reservation
Do let them seat themselves inside - even though they had a reservation a week in advance for outside.
Do treat them like rudly!
Do Ignore them with Drama Queen, Diva flair.
Do after making them wait close to 2 hours for a table, tell them ok the 2 measly drinks that they had were on the house.
DON'T EVER GO TO AESOP'S TABLES ~~~!!!!!!
