Service was impeccable. Besides the attentive waitress, we had several other people stop by to ask us how everything was. The ambiance was great and the food was absolutely delicious! I will definitely go there again.

Native is fast becoming my go to favorite downtown dinner spot. The location is ideal with lots of on-street parking as well a parking garage right next door. The ambiance draws you in but the food and service will bring you back. Everyone is always so attentive and accommodating. I just love this place!

My wife was not particularly happy with her burger, but I thoroughly enjoyed my hummus plate and gladly ate her fries. Good Malbec, too.

This was the third time we’ve eaten here. Several of us ordered the arctic char special and found for the price, the serving was very skimpy. My husband ordered the impossible burger which came out cold and our coffee after dinner was lukewarm.
The other times we had been there were much better so we will still probably try it again since it’s so convenient to GeVa.

Very happy with the experience! I love how the restaurant is organized - bar section if you're feeling social, quiet booths for date night, music was good but not intrusive. Thanks Native!

Thanks for making us a part of your Geva nights out, Lynda! Our wine lists take about 3 months to curate, so this means a lot to us. We appreciate your continued support and we can't wait for your next visit. See you soon! Sincerely, Native Management

This was the 4-5 time eating at Native Eater and the Impossible burger was very good. Easy access to GEVA and prompt service.

Great location and ambience. Poor food and drinks. Would definitely recommend an alternative option.

This was our first visit to Native for a date night. The ambiance is contemporary/trendy and a bit on the stuffy side. It was lovely to look out the big windows towards Geva and Washington Square Park. The service was perfectly acceptable. However, at this price point, I expect to be more impressed by the food. The chop salad was nicely assembled, but the vinaigrette was quite lack-luster and tasted mostly like plain vinegar. The chèvre pizza had a nice crunchy crust, but an overwhelming burnt garlic flavor. For three beers (Young Lion IPA), the salad, and the pizza, we paid over $70. This is more than I want to pay for nice atmosphere and mediocre food. I will give it another chance to see if other dishes make me want to return.
