good Pomegranite mojitos – Found this place by accident when looking for a pre-Sweet & Vicious visit. Nicely done drinks. Casual Chic Atmosphere. Service was ok. Almost seemed like they didn't care. Tapas dishes were fine but not good enough to order again. I have only gone back here for the cocktails.
My new favorite place! – My friends and I were wandering around looking for a nice chill place to grab some drinks, and we passed by Room 18 which was outstandingly cute. Even though it was small, we were seated right away, and the waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable about their wine selection. When we saw there was an opening by the window and asked to be moved to the front, he was very nice and accomodating. Their bottles of wine and drinks are very fairly priced, will test out the food next time. Even though it was a calm crowd, the music was upbeat and lively. Definitely coming back here for another fun night!
Service not good, everything else is – I went to Room 18 for my bday, and they said that they could accomodate a group of 20+ people. I went there a few minutes early to see how they set it up, but they did not set up yet even though the restaurant was empty. When I asked them where we would sit, the person in charge ignored me. Once they did set it up, they said that their table arrangement could accomodate 20 people. But it could not. A chunk of the evening was spent playing musical chairs and rearranging the tables so that everyone could find a place to sit. Some of my friends were not comfortable,and they did very little to make sure that they were.
On the flip side, good food, good ambiance and the service got better once we had a different waiter.
A Nolita lounge for tapas and a quasi-romantic interlude. – The Scene
A neighborhood dinner-and-date crowd morphs into a singles scene as the night wears on and the DJ gets going. The hopping classic-style bar is backed by an antique mirror; leather chairs sidle up to tables; and low clubby seating flanks the bar. A harried staff does its best to accommodate but is often distracted.
The menu makes liberal use of Latin and Asian flavors; steer to the south for the more satisfying experience. Start with seafood empanadas, bursting with a medley of fish, or the shrimp with honey-guava dipping sauce, made savory by a crisped pork wrap. The roast duck, a simple affair of duck and salsa in a tortilla, matches well with a full-bodied wine. Entrees lack kick, but are serviceable: The tame coconut chicken arrives notably tender, and salmon gets help from a faint wasabi sauce. The pineapple-chorizo fried rice works best as a side dish.
Great Unique food – The food is amazing. Service was average, but still decent. Go there for tapas, there are unique tastes you don't get other places in the city. This place has character and really good food.
where everybody knows your name... – contrary to a few of the reviews found here, i find the service to be extremely warm and friendly. room 18 has been a great addition to this neighborhood and fits right in. the regular crowd consists mostly of locals and we enjoy the inviting and cozy atmosphere that room 18 provides thanks in large part to the wonderful owners who are always on duty.
the delicious tapas and wine selection is just the cherry on top!
Okay at best. – Came here with my girl, and it was okay at best. The place may be romantic, but we were the only people in the place. Great place to be if you want to be by yourselves. Food was okay- typical bar food... greasy. Food is better next door.
User review by chillaxing – Rm. 18 has a cozy romantic atmosphere that's very comfortable to enjoy myself in; whether I want to have a drink at the bar or get together with a group of friends for dinner, suitable accomodations are available.
Their food is great! And the drinks are very unique + fresh...
Best of all, their service is excellent!!
Just chill... – I love this place, the food is excellent and the employees there are just wonderful and sweet. I visited NY during the summer, and found myself becoming another regular. A really relaxing place to chill after a long days work or to hang out and mingle with your friends/family. The next time I come back, that'll be the first place I hit up and the last place to finish off the visit.
on a last note: I LOVE YOU PETER AND JILL!!!!!
Cozy and stylish – This place is a huge hit for me and my friends. Super cozy with from its lighting and atmosphere. Definitely love the brick walls! Food was great, a fusion in every little dish. A great sense of style. Not to noisy, its was great night for me and the girls. Girl talk all night! If you like a romantic date or just a plain night out, this is the place.
