    Perfect little spot for a date night. Or go alone and sit at the (tiny) bar. Well thought out food. The restaurant is cozy and inviting. Just make sure you make a reservation or you won't be invited in without a long wait.

    Great place to eat for sure. I had what was called the joey or something like that thinking it was thee “friends” catch phrase but it was something else. And man it was great eats. And the tea that came to me is like something that this non city guy thinks he is was the real thing in teas. Loved the service and they had let my wife and I in a tab bit early just to serve us from the cold. It was New Year’s Eve in the city 2017. Recorded temperatures from what we had been in. They were a great crew. Little owl is a place to go just for some great eats. Enjoy.

    Originally went there to see the FRIENDS building but decided to check out the restaurant for breakfast as well. The food was amazing!!! It was a little pricey but definitely worth every penny. My husband ordered the side of bacon and it wasn't a measly 2 pieces like you normally get at other places. It was a plateful of bacon! The french toast, pancakes, and avocado were all terrific! And the service was great too. Glad we stopped!

    Came here for lunch with couple of friends. Service was great and food came quickly! We had a special - steak taco (very flavorful) and skate sandwich. Delicious! Would come again.

    As a huge "F.r.i.e.n.d.s" fan, I had to visit this place and see what's inside. It's a very small, but charming and cozy place. Some dishes are a bit expensive (a small steak for 40 something dollars), but very delicious. The stuff was nice and very friendly. I'm a bit disappointed that there was no mentioning of the show inside, none whatsoever. A little picture or a small souvenir would be nice. Still, I can't give this place less than 5 stars.

    Everything was amazing. We went there because my wife wanted to visit "central perk". And we're not disappointed by the restaurant that it actually is. Food was great and staff was even better.

    This little gem was a surprise for me. Nestled on a cozy street corner, the warm, hospitable atmosphere was quite comfortable. The restaurant was packed (its a small place) but I didn't feel cramped. And the food, well... the appetizers were amazing, with a seared duck and raisin salad and grilled sardines over a beautiful caesar salad. Honestly some inspired cooking here. The entrees were good as well, although not quite as wowing.
