Gemma - The Bowery Hotel
Always enjoy my experience and meal at this local favorite. Nothing on the menu I would not suggest!
A lovely outside experience with our grandkids. Perfect pizza dinner!
Gemma has always been a favorite place to duck into for a meal - especially for breakfast - but on this trip, a large group of guests from the Bowery Hotel showed up in their bathrobes and spent their entire meal Facetiming...
I suppose that guests of the hotel are extended unusual accommodations, but their behavior was reminiscent of a Sweet-16 Party, and breakfast at Gemma felt more like all-you-could-eat pancakes at IHOP.
Pleasantly authentic Italian, from the house-made pasta and nicely pounded chicken Milanese, to the interesting cocktails and Italian wine selection. Service was pleasant and professional, and the outside tables are nicely spaced from pedestrians passing by. Definitely going on my go-to list when in town.
Food and service outstanding.
The ambiance is rustic with amber light, but not too dark.
Great date night place. The right amount of laid back sophistication you want in a great part of town.
I’m going back immediately.
Thought the prosciutto pizza was better than the pasta (tried the recipe with shrimp and lemon). Thought the ambiance was cozy but a little tired. Updated lighting would help. Service was great! Good location. Will try again.
The food was mediocre for its price
We got zero service. Had to wait for a long time to place order. And another long wait to get check only to learn their system is down and we had to write down our credit card information.. nobody came to our table to explain proactively
I’m not going back
Always amazing and cheerful service. A nice menu with new additions seasonally.
This used to be one of my favorite restaurants. As a lifelong New Yorker, we highly value our food. I returned yesterday hoping to recapture my pre-Covid dining experience only to leave utterly disappointed and disgusted. No longer serving their fantastic “pollo al matone”, the meal was more akin to dining at a roadside Denny’s . I ended up paying $215 for this crap, $64 of which were drinks to try and wash it down.
Great from start to finish, good, service and atmosphere!
Basic to poor food quality. Aloof service. Need the food to match the atmosphere and attitude.
Gemma NEVER disappoints. The menu is not extensive but they make everything on the menu very well. Additionally, the wine list is very agreeable and the service is extremely professional and attentive.
Good was great and atmosphere warm. The waiters and hostess were friendly and did a great job!
Had a nice meal with friends. Party of five and we chose to eat indoors but we were seated close enough to the open windows in the front of the restaurant to feel as though we were getting the best of both.
Service was professional and efficient and not in the least bit rushed. We had several
different starters and five different mains which was shared with the table. Food was great. Flavorful and unpretentious. Just good Italian fare.
Pre-dinner drinks were wonderful and the two bottles of wine suggested by our server were very good and reasonably priced as well.
I would definitely recommend Gemma over most of the "touristy" Italian restaurants in nearby Little Italy if you're looking for a high quality, reasonably priced menu in pleasant surroundings. We will definitely be back.
The food, service and atmosphere were all wonderful. The hostess was also very nice and accommodating. We all loved it!
A little gem of Italian cuisine prepared w3more flair than one would expect in the LES. Great cocktails too!
Food quality has gotten so bad
A perfect place to enjoy delicious
Pizza with our grandsons!!! Thanks.
We loved our evening and our meal but it was soooooooooooo noisy :( I really regretted not booking a table outside where, despite police cars and fir engines it would have been easier to hear!
Terrible service! The food and drinks are okay, but I had to have to wait for over 20 minutes before I could order, and that's after getting someone over. Meanwhile, all the other tables around are getting food and drinks and their orders taken.
We felt rushed by the staff, and the menu was more limited than it has been in the past. Only about half of the pasta and entrees as our last visits.
Food and wine were excellent! Spacing was very crowded and hindered service, waited about an hour in between their table passes.
A must on Manhattan. I love Gemma for everything. I also eat there when visiting Manhattan.
Service was truly exceptional! Friendly, professional and fun 👍
Great food and service. Wonderful dinner. Would go again.
Always a lovely dining experience. The burrata starter was flavorful, served with artichoke hearts made for a nice touch. The baverttine, in a light lemon sauce with shrimp, is a perfect summer dish. The orecchiette with pesto is simple and excellent. The service as great, and the kitchen was incredibly fast. Our dessert calzone -- a wonderful way to finish a meal - came out in a matter of minutes after we ordered.
It was really good food and a great overall experience
Great set up for outdoor dining. Food was great and we didn't feel rushed. Service was pretty much non-existent though, and we ended up with each other's leftovers after our server very specifically identified each bag - but incorrectly, so they got thrown out and wasted. We should have checked but he was very confident as he handed them to us! I'd definitely go back but would hope for better service.
Absolutely outstanding food set in a casual and fun vibe. Highly recommend the orichette with broccoli rabe. Very authentic food.
Excellent dining experience- tasty food , nice atmosphere, good service
First time back in over a year and Gemma is still EXCELLENT. The menu is somewhat limited but EVERYTHING on it is amazing.
The wine list is quite extensive and the staff is most professional.
Gemma does it again, yet another fantastic experience for a dinner in Manhattan. 10/10
Enjoyed a wonderful brunch. Restaurant was great!
Covid safe and great service and food. A winner and would go back anytime
truly my favorite restaurant. food is always consistent. staff is always welcoming!
Great dinner. Great service.
Always a good meal whenever I go! Been lucky enough to grab last minute reservation even on busy Friday nights. Service is amazing, always on time, staff is friendly, and prices are worth the quality of the meal. I never feel rushed to hurry up and finish due to it being busy, I love the privateness of how they set up outdoor dining, each table has it’s only little half enclosed space. Overall, never disappoints! Can’t wait to be back.
Great vibe in the outdoor space, attentive staff and lovely food.
Cacio e pepe pasta was so good! Wine was nice too.
