    Leave the restaurant via the door in the southwest corner of the main dining room. Walk three paces into the lobby then go left, down the long flight of concrete stairs, into the basement. The bathrooms — a series of unisex stalls in a long row — are to your left.

    It's a scene and worth it! Definitely make a res and head out for drinks or dancing after. Or hang around the adjoining Standard Hotel Cooper Square as it's a scene also.

    Chef John Fraser (of Dovetail) gets his ingredients from a private farm 90 miles north of Manhattan, which boasts a bounty of flavor-packed vegetables, as well as a retired cow that lends the restaurant its name.

    Pan-fried, short-rib-and-brisket LaFrieda burger — finished off with manchego, watercress, and guacamole on a brioche bun — is available during brunch.

    Conveniently located in the perennially-cool Standard hotel's East Village outpost, Narcissa has been getting rave reviews across the board by the likes of Grub Street, Time Out, and The New Yorker.

    The closest subway station is the Astor Place station on the green line #6 train. The restaurant has an inconspicuous sign at the end of a LONG WALKWAY to the entrance door (see photo). Therefore I will add that the entrance walkway is virtually opposite the Village Voice newspaper building across the street. I had the Lacquered Duck Breast ($39), served medium rare, as requested. It has a honey glaze on the skin only and it was very good. I had it the last time I was here earlier this year.

    The atmosphere of the restaurant is great, especially on the patio outside ! Service is super nice but a little bit slow. Food was good !

    I like to think I have discriminating taste. I eat all of NYC and am the one who takes the lead on selecting restos. Girls nite out and this one was heinous! Why? 1- it was 1000 degrees in a half full dining room 2- the waiter was not just odd but slightly hopped up in what I don't know 3-Narcissa salad and grilled octopus that you can get at a good diner in the E Village 4- fish was served after an interminable wait and it was COLD. 2 of us asked for it to be warmed and the waiter looked like we had stabbed him w a fork- he told us it couldn't be warmed and walked away Had to deploy a forceful friend to descend on Kate the manager - she was gracious but we lost appetite. She was happy to start over but we would have eaten after 10 Never saw the waiter again - only paid for drinks Shame on this NYC place- Infatuation NY loved it- went Daveys ice cream and had a better "dinner" SKIP IT!

    surprisingly lovely dinner......needed to eat early (5pm) for nearby theater, so didn't have a lot of choice in Soho/Village area nearby.....but Narcissa had a nice menu and an ambitious kitchen.....not inexpensive, but very good salad, fish, appetizers......would go back....they do have a nice outdoor garden for dining too

    Stopped in for brunch and ordered carrot fries with jalapeno tofu dip, biscuits and gravy and smoked salmon and bagel. The portions were small and the prices were really high. Cocktails were well made and strong. Beautiful garden setting but other than the carrot fries nothing really stood out. Service was not attentive. This was a "one and done" for me. I so not recommend Narcissa.

    We were there for a business conference, and we used one of their private room. When we were settled down into our seats, we noticed two big flies swirling around the room. We notified the hostess twice, and she did absolutely nothing; so, our conference was constantly being interrupted by those two fat flies flying over people's head, our food, and on the screen. The service was very poor. It was 90 degree in NYC, and we were served with lukewarm water. Our food did not arrive until an hour and a half after we settled. There were 6 servers and 2 busboys serving a party of 7 guesses. We didn't even know who to talk to for more wine or refill of the water jar. So, we decided to serve ourselves at the table. The food was a bit cold when it arrived at the table. The entire dining experience was simply terrible. I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    This was a great venue recommended by some young friends and it did not disappoint. The beet salad for starters and the Ahi tuna were tasty and visually appealing. The Dover sole was lightly crumbed and matched exactly what the waiter said. The wine list was totally surprising, as I did not recognize even one wine on the list! Either the list wasn't all that good or I don't know as much bout wine as I thought ...ummm. We sat outside on a Spring evening under heaters with blankets. And it was just lovely. The toilets were some of the best design I've ever seen. Stylish, attractive and very private.

    The ground floor of this building is vibrant with a next-door café and outdoor seating next to the restaurant. The interior and the outdoor decoration as well as the staff itself is nicely put together into a great seating. Service is good and the place puts you in a good mood. We had salad, taco chicken, tortellini caviar, a few sides and bread pudding for dessert. All in all good food but we missed that little extra.

    Loudest place in town. A loud boom, boom, boom all night. Interesting quirky, friendly help. Hard to summon anyone to bring you what the other guy forgot. All portions were of vastly different sizes. The duck was tiny, the lamb big. They fried the Dover Sole which is a pity. The pork belly was soggy. The lamb was sumptuous, the spinach was perfect and I'd go back for that. The raw tuna was miniscule. There was no real chocolate dessert and the sundae was sloppy. I'd not bother with this place, because it was a painful dining experience. Some diners will go home hungry and on a Saturday night at 10 PM it was a zoo.

    One word that will describe this restaurant is wow. Such amazing decor. We came here for brunch.. amazing menu. Great cocktails. Amazing dessert. All four of us was very pleased with our dishes. I was particularly impressed with carrot fries, just wish there were more than just three but they were delicious. Must try dessert. Great service and amazing food. Will go back for dinner and most definitely recommend for brunch.

    This place is adjoining the main entrance to the Standard East hotel on Third Avenue near W. 4th Street. The space seems to be divided into two sections with an open kitchen in the middle. We sat in the room to the right which is very pretty with greenery right outside the large front windows. The furnishings are attractive and comfortable. The menu is creative and all four of us enjoyed what we ordered. Drinks were first. I had a Nouveau Pomme, which was made of green apple, spices, lime, and vodka. Delicious. We ordered French Toast Bites for the table. The order was made up of four, finger length pieces of very good french toast so we all enjoyed a sample. My entree was the Broccoli and Bacon Frittata. I would not call it a frittata. Instead, it reminded me of a giant popover made and served in a cast iron pan. It was beautiful and did not disappoint. So, not only was the place pleasant and the food good, but the bonus was that it also did not have the usual terrible noise level that so many NYC restaurants have. We will return.

    Had a great dinner with business friend. Always very busy, but interesting all their dishes. We share dishes and then enjoy main course. Definitely recommended

    The best thing about Narcissa is the staff; our server was wonderful - attentive and efficient. Had the Brussels sprouts salad, way too much Parmesan and I adore cheese, it was salty and overpowered the dish. Had the lacquered duck entrée and it left me underwhelmed, not enough veggies to complement and quite a bit of fat, more than was necessary. Wine was excellent although the name escapes me. The entrée choices were limited, but appetizers were plentiful. Perhaps I should have done just them instead. In any event, not impressed, although the setting was lovely.

    Hair in the salad. A waiter just said"the salad was there for a while maybe someone's hair just flew in."

    We enjoyed a great dinner this evening. Three appetizers to please different palettes, three Winter Brochettes, vegetables, fish and chicken to share. Good cocktails, nice wine list. Server recommended a truly delicious dessert. Hope to be back again!

    This is a great place to have brunch on a Sunday in a lovely garden. The food is nothing special, yet over prized. More for people watching than for a great meal. But the garden is so lovely that I will keep going back. The main dining room is stale and antiquated. Skip it and stick with the outdoors. Enjoy!

    Nice brunch - very tasty strawbery juice and edd / avocado brunch. A bit noisy as tables are close to each other

    Narcissa is hipster heaven and being over 30 in this restaurant seemed to rate indifference from our waiter. A very late reservation should have assured better service but after waiting 90 minutes for entrees, we were hungry and tired. When the food finally did arrive, two dishes had to be turned back because they were barely lukewarm. The halibut, at $38 was the size of a slider. Much too small for that price. The manager tried to make amends by buying our wine and the two returned dinners, but it was a little too late. Had the waiter once apologized, we might have felt justified but he only got more surly. Frankly, what I looked forward to most was leaving.
