RUDE! STAY AWAY!! – I have never seen a place with such service!!!! Bad, bad, bad!!!! Beware of this place! They charge you for drinks that you have never order. It happened to me and my friends on two separate occasions. The rude waitress/bartender said that we must have been confused!! Well my friend had only had two Molotov cocktails, and the waitress made us pay for 3. What happened to customer being right?? I understand being confused when you have 5-6 cocktail but not 2!!! The waitress messed something up and made us pay for it. Half an hour before that, our friends were leaving the bar and guess what happened? They had 2 extra drinks on their tab and the same RUDE waitress was trying to convince them that they were wrong. Never going there again!!! For $200 that we spent there for 5 people that was some way to treat its customers!!!
Sghetti "Jherk" Jam – So me and my girl go in on a Sunday as we have an occasional habit of doing -- we love the spaghetti and meatballs there so much. We order two drinks, the tortilla chips and want to share the spaghetti. 20 minutes roll. We ask where our chips are, the waiter leaves and someone comes 5 minutes later with the chips. 10 minutes roll. We ask were the sghetti is and one dude says they had a fire in the kitchen but that they will have it in 10 if we wait. We wait 15 minutes then some dude shows up with chips again. im like "no, we want our sghetti not chips, we had those already while ago" hes like "talk to a manager". im like "why?" leaves, then Caribbean Queen comes over says, "oh we had a fire in the kitchen, do you still want your meal cuz it will take 15-20" im like "uh, someone promised that before and was supposed to bring it long ago, you could have told us it was not gonna be ready for nearly an hour. Thats too long now. Its 930 and we gotta eat and go home so please comp these chips and well pay for the two rum and cokes and go.I mean, chips cost nothing, but they do cost like 9 bux here." shes like "oh no, nobody else asked for anything why should you?" im like "uh...wait a minute, we are not everybody else, we are the folks talking to you right now, this is a huge inconvenience and we are going home hungry." shes like "well, its an inconvenience for us that the kitchen be broken so it no matter you are inconvenience" I could reset the kitchen on fire now..."listen, im walking outta here. You just lost yourself a loyal customer." shes all "jherk" chicken and says "we have plenty customer." No tip.
wow. i guess i'll miss the food if i dont go back. just hope its one of the cool folks next time.
Neighborhood gem! – Daddy O is a great find. Fantastic food and drinks with specialty cocktails, amazing food and late night service. I am obsessed with the bartenders, they're extremely friendly and good to their regulars. I lived across the street for two years and still miss the chicken sandwich!!
wrong owner – I am a fan of Steve Crain and Po too and live in his building. I know he has not been involved in Daddio for a long time now. I can't review Daddio because I don't go anymore.
Daddy-NO -- avoid this place – I am shocked that this place is still open when there are so many other good choices in the neighborhood for a drink. I recently dropped in randomly with a few friends for a drink and went to use the bathroom before ordering. While I was gone, the bartender yelled at my friends that the restrooms were for customers only and that we had to order a drink first so that we would be "customers" (which they did). A few minutes later, one of my friends (a petite girl) politely confronted the bartender about his rudeness, the bartender flipped out, started yelling and shining a flashlight in her eyes, and physically pushed her out of the bar (this guy was big and buff and clearly in some sort of 'roid rage). When I asked him to calm down I received the same treatment. I have had better experiences at the seediest dives around the city. I love Po and it especially disappoints me that Steve Crane would tolerate such terrible behavior from his employees. Avoid.
worst bar in the city, horrible service, bartenders are rude – This place is awful. I agree with the person regarding service. I went there with my boyfriend for a few drinks on a weekend night. They made my drink horribly wrong. My bf went to bartender I ordered it from and asked him nicely if they could remake it or add more "ketal one" vodka to my dirty martini because it tasted like olive juice only (disgusting). The bartender smirked and splashed some other vodka in the glass instead and said something rude. I don't know about other service there, but this was the worst service I have ever received in the city. We should have just gone to the bar across the street--the Village Tavern.
A neighborhood pub defies typical bar standards in the West Village – It's the gentrified West Village's version of a regular folks pub. The corner space is relaxed enough for game-watching and grubbing on standards like Tater-Tots, wings and chicken fingers, but refined enough to sport high ceilings, dark-wood wainscoting and a granite-topped bar. The dual-purpose ambience works well whether you're out for a beer and a burger with the gang, hanging with office folks after hours or in need of a dinner-date nightcap.
Hits: Along the theme of being easygoing yet polished, the bar serves everything from draft beers to specialty cocktails, like the popular Eastside cucumber mint medley.
Misses: If you plan to watch the game there, the TV's aren't as big or as plenty as at other sports bars.
Fantastic Cocktails & Food! – Stopped in with some friends for a burger & beer. Beer ? good, Burger ? SUPERB! The food exceeded our expectations, 2 people in our group ordered the catfish sandwiches ? EXCELLENT! The staff was attentive, professional & friendly. We noticed their specialty cocktail list on the wall & had to try some. I had an amazing Cilantro based Mojito (I can?t remember the exact name) ? never had anything like it before, absolutely delicious. The bartender makes the cocktails in a very ?old school? style which was terrific! Nothing but good things to say about this place. We will DEFINITELY be back!
not a great place – I used to love this bar. I went there quite often. However, they have a new bartender and I will never go there again. I had some friends in town visiting, and suggested we go to Daddy-o as a nice end to our night out. Told my friends they would love this place. We ordered a couple of drinks and the bartender messed up two of them. My friend went back to get them remade and the bartender started yelling and swearing at my friend in front of everyone at the bar (it's not a loud place). Totally UNACCEPTABLE. Had we been rowdy, well maybe I could understand being yelled at. But my friend just nicely asked to have the drinks remade, it's not like we asked for a free round or anything. I complained to the owner of the bar a short time later to let him know that his employee was disrespecting customers, and he didn?t really seem to care. I guess losing only one customer in New York City is not such a big deal. I really felt bad a scene was made with my friend at the center and will not recommend this place to anyone again.
Cool place to relax and have a few – This is a great place to swing by if you're in the neighborhood... I wouldn't make it a desination for a night out, but it's got a great vibe that feels like home (without the couches)
Bartenders are cool and the drinks are pretty fair priced and they have a decent selection...I heard the food isn't bad either, but didn't get to try this time around...will def be back
