The Grange Bar & Eatery serves up blackboard specials, comfort grub and drinks in a friendly farmhouse-inspired space, featuring cozy booths, white oak floors, brick-lined walls and antique chandeliers. This downtown restaurant and bar also offers a tidy list of ingredient heavy dishes. Treat yourself to a roasted-beet salad, some watermelon with feta or seared crab cakes, served next to celery slaw.

The Grange is a popular neighborhood watering hole. Alongside its rotating offering of beer and wine, the 74-seat bar offers a special beverage program that features specialty cocktails such as the Convent Stroll (soda, lemon juice, ginger, whiskey and honey). Open all through the week, The Grange stays in full swing until 4 a.m. every day, making it an appealing pick for the late night crowd.

Everything was delicious from the starters to the drop dead delicious peach cobbler for dessert. We will return the next time we are in New York.

Sunday nights at the Grange is a VIBE. So quaint, cozy, and great live jazz music 7-10p.

Excellent experience especially as we were visitors from UK. Only thing we were disappointed with was the portion of ravioli was very small. Burgers were superb.

Really liked the lamb burger with the sweet potato fries. I had it with the seasonal pumpkin cocktail. It was the perfect combo. The peach cobbler was delicious! It’s locally sourced so that was really nice! Gnocchi was a great starter! Will return!

Took my mom out to live jazz at the Grange on Sunday night while she was in town, and she loved it! The food was excellent as usual, the music was good, and the service was great! Will be back.

Good food and value, but many service issues marred our overall experience. Reservation was for a party of five last Sat.

1. Open Table reservation was not initially honored. We were first told it didn’t exist. Then it was found. Then we were told that Open Table is not connected to their main reservation system. (Does anyone think that’s a legitimate reason to deny service, or reasonable to tell customers? Seems another reviewer on this site had the same experience - check Gweniveire’s review.)
2. We had to appeal to the manager, prove our reservation, and press our case to get a table, which turned out in the end to be available and visible.
3. No decanter available for the red wine we ordered.
4. Waitress initially refused to repurpose a wide-mouth glass water bottle as a decanter despite six unused ones visibly sitting on service bar. (“Those are for water.” Huh?)
5. I had to appeal to the bartender for a spare water bottle before one was reluctantly used as a makeshift decanter.
6. Entrees brought out while we were still working on our appetizers. Server appeared perplexed by our request to keep entrees off the table until first course was completed.
7. Lamb porterhouse was requested rare. It was served well-done. (Thankfully, sending it back went smoothly.)
8. It was difficult to get our assigned waitress’ attention. (It was not a full house.) Fortunately, we were able to get an alert waitress’ attention from a nearby table.

Two of our party were celebrating birthdays, so speed bumps were particularly unwelcome. In the end, we spent a few hundred dollars and left a tip anyway. I’m unsure about coming back: Because the overall store culture and system do not appear to be designed around outstanding customer experience, I believe avoiding a repeat would be a gamble. Planning to spend more time at Fumo and Oso, two great places a block or two further south on Amsterdam.

Lovely. Welcoming space; tables are not too close together, and on a warm night, there are some twos
outside. The Grange has a very nice menu with a mix of small and large plates. There's something for everyone. My group had swordfish, blackened salmon tacos, rack of lamb, cauliflower quinoa burgers, and salads, and we were all very happy. Good fries; excellent, unusual cocktails. Don't miss the fresh, hot donuts for dessert. Will return often.

The Grange did something that I still don't understand. We booked a 6:45 PM reservation via Open Table, and showed up at the restaurant at 6:35. We were told that our reservation did not exist, despite the confirmation I showed them on my phone. They asked, would you like to sit at a high-top at the front? I'm sorry but my 75 year old mother needs a comfortable seat, not a stool! So we sat outside, which was fine... then I looked at my messages and got a note from OpenTable saying my reservation had been cancelled by the restaurant at 6:27 PM!! The fact that you all are now sending me a request to tell you about my meal is doubly surprising.

A vegan, an omnivore and a pescatarian walk into a bar in Hamilton Heights... the punchline? Harlem Grange is passable for a vegan to enjoy drinks and dinner with two non-vegan friends. Not liking gin and the spicy rum drink being 'out,' my choices from the specialty cocktail menu were Granny's Apple and Granny's Apple. My husband had a Dogfish brew, a variety he hadn't tried before, and our friend had an aged bourbon on the rocks. With dinner, M. and I opted for wine, a cabernet and a garnacha, respectively. Hubby had another Dogfish. Starters were so-so. The king oyster/trumpet mushroom was salty and chewy. My omnivore friend picked the peppers. Mains were very good we all agreed. I ordered the BBQ cauliflower 'steak' and chick pea dish; it does not appear on the OpenTable menu. My dining companions both ordered the swordfish and were pleased with the texture, moistness and flavor. Our meal ended with bread pudding and coffee for my husband while M. and I finished our wine and reminiscing. Service was satisfactory. Our server was patient to a point with delay or indecision on ordering. The point where she asked "Do you need more time?" arrived sooner and the time she granted us grew longer at each subsequent stage of our meal. We took this in the fun spirit of the evening and had a good laugh about it.

The noise level is a bit challenging...when out with friends I want to talk to them, not shout. The restaurant was also VERY warm, not sure if there's a way to get some air in the back towards where the kitchen is but it did get quite uncomfortable. We were seated in the back and there was a very strong smell of restaurant cleaning fluid, not sure what was going on but it got really overwhelming as the evening went on. We love the Grange and will go back but, this trip was not the most positive of experiences...

Great neighborhood haunt. They change up their menu almost seasonally, but in living around the corner for 2 years, I've never had a bad dish. Ever. Also, next mf level grilled cheese. Do yourself a favor and get it as a starter.
