Came here this past Sunday for my birthday brunch. It’s legit a club scene so expect very loud music and dark lighting. My friends and I really wanted a celebration so it was great for us. Food isn’t 5 star quality but it was sensible, did the job. The only annoying thing is that the wait staff is constantly rushing you, to eat, clear the table and bring your check. They don’t play about the 2 hours of dining, and they are also strict with the coat check. We stayed another hour or so for partying/dancing/pictures. The music was really good. All in all it was a fun experience with decent food and a bottle of champagne for each of us individually. If you’re looking for a dining experience, this isn’t for you. If you want a fun party with your people’s, I’d say give this place a shot.
I hosted my birthday dinner that evening at Il Bastardo. The food was good, music was nice, and the ambiance was set. Unfortunately, though they had confirmed my balloons since I signed up for the birthday club prior to the dinner (they confirmed a few days before actually..), they did not have my balloons. I was looking forward to my balloons (I requested the # 7 as I am a leap year baby). I had to inquire to the server about the balloons before I was told that they did not have anymore helium. The server did try and gave me sparks to hold while they paraded the birthday sign behind me.
Other than that, the experience was great.
Awful experience. Security needs to be stronger.
This was an awesome place for a girls birthday celebration. food was very good and Service was very attentive for the 20% tip. Well organized event space!
Our server was excellent. And very understating. It was smooth with the help of her (Jossie) did wish they played better music but overal it was good.
I love going to IL Bastardo. It's the perfect place to have a "lit" brunch and party away. The music is more Hip/Hop, Pop, and top Forty. The dance floor welcomes everyone and the party never stops. I'll be back for my birthday.
Went to celebrate for my birthday && I loved it. I was a few minutes late but they still honored my reservation, which was great because there was a lot of people waiting outside for a table. The food was great, the service was fast, and for some people it may be too loud. But I personally loved the vibe. Lol we could barely stay seated we just wanted to keep dancing. Shoutout to that Dj!
First , the waiter took our order and the food came out in 5 minutes . It was cold and didn’t taste good. Also the waiter never came back to take any other orders we had to hunt him down. Lastly, the music was loud but bass was way off so it was annoying and so many declase people !
I enjoyed myself and it was great. I would recommend this play to anyone. I will be back
Honestly this place forces you into prefix menus. Food is sub par. tables and seating is dirty and old. Only savior is the bomb DJ. Other than that, unorganized, & rushed. I would not recommend.
The seafood entrees had a fish smell which was more of an odor then aroma.... we ordered chicken Caesar salad in which we had to send back because the lettuce had a strange taste. Our waiter was not very attentive we happen to be more disappointed with his service than anything. We went for a birthday and received an email to present to your waiter to get complementary balloons for your birthday if you’re part of a birthday club once presented to our way there he then intern tells us that there isn’t any helium for balloons so instead he would give me a shot which never happened. Never once did I wait or to try to accommodate us for the poor food or not enjoying the birthday celebration.
The concept of this place is amazing but poorly executed in my opinion
Lots of fun for a turn-up brunch!! The food is delicious and the personal bottles are a great option.
I took my friend for birthday, we're welcome by beautiful hostess and handsome man. The atmosphere was amazing. Specially the robot show. They brought us birthday cake with sparklers and sign. We were feeling special. Service was excellent. I would highly recommend if you celebrate your birthday go to IL Bastardo.
Definitely a go to if you’re in the mood for a club at 12-4 in the afternoon. I went for my 22nd birthday and it was a fun time, but they bring you your food almost immediately after your bottle or drink. Could use a few more minutes to take a few sips before eating.
Definitely a party place. The restaurant is well designed with a decent size dance floor. They definitely make sure you feel special if it's your birthday. The only negative comment I have is the music is way to loud for the server to hear. There were few mistakes but nothing the server couldn't quickly fix.
Great place waitress took 20 minutes to take our order and had little time to eat and enjoy
Was very exciting almost like a day party club. Everything i would want in a brunch.
My only wish was that we would have known there would be a mandatory coat check
Overall a great experience- other reviews before going had me a tad bit skeptical but it was an amazing time with very lit vibes, and the food was ok. Definitely would have been even better if the establishment had hookah !
Can’t beat a great deal here for the champagne lunch! A bottle of champagne and a meal for $73!
Music was great and had a get vibe!
Amazing time with amazing people best experience ❤️
This was one of the best places I have ever been to. The entertainment is excellent. The crowd gets involved. Everyone sings, some get up and dance. If you've never been, I highly suggest it. I can't wait to
come back again. Such a fun night!
I highly recommend Il Bastardo! I went for a friend’s birthday and had the best time ever. The DJ was on point and the service was outstanding. I had the lobster Mac and cheese and it did not disappoint. The prices are straight forward and the $65 option is worth it!!! If you’re looking to party during the day and take a cute pic for IG — this is the spot to be.
So much fun one of the best brunch spots in NYC.
Every time I visit I am never disappointed, the atmosphere, food, staff, and dj is always good.
It was so much fun! I would recommend and deff go back!
Birthday. Everyone had a great time!
I loved it! First time there to celebrate my birthday and I loved it!
Great place.Service is amazing.Very friendly staff.
Was very excited for this place. Wind up being the biggest waste of a lifetime. Libation is a better brunch club deal for sure. The fact that basic crispy chicken sandwich was $10 extra per person is a rip off. So what’s the purpose of a person paying $65 per person including a bottle and an entree if the entree is an extra $10? For a terrible bottle of champagne?? Our reservation was at 2... we sat at 2:15 pm after the line wait... coat check... hostess wait... didn’t even get more than 5 minutes to decide what we wanted to order. So we ate, drank and at 3:15 the check was dropped. $100 for a hour per person? Not worth it. Full regret.
Had a good time really enjoyed my birthday at this nice place . Music was good , food was fresh and staff was friendly and understanding ❤️ Would definitely return
I was here for my birthday
I beg U don’t come here .. extremely over priced for the type of bottles and food you get. I celebrated my 30th birthday here over the weekend and I was sad afterwards. It just wasn’t a good experience. You pay coat check and they take your debit card and ID and put it in an envelope for your waiter to carry around all night. I didn’t like that idea. The food was lukewarm, no balloons as advertised and very rushed. They mean it when they say 2 hours. Soon as you’re done eating they kick you out. I was even told they needed my table so we had to get our monies together at the bar. They threw my cake out that guests didn’t get to eat as they were in the long line for the bathroom(which only has two stalls). I was very upset. We bought $530 of food and the bill was $900. The waiter offered to cut my cake but didnt say they charge $5 per slice they cut. So that was welcoming surprise on the bill. I couldn’t fathom how much the bill was for just 7 ppl. The menu is trash, they have 4 tiers $45 $75 $150 and $200 the $45 comes with a 175ml bottle (basically a champagne flute serving of alcohol) everything else comes with the average size of a champagne bottle. The prefixed options were pathetic. Avocado toast an omelette infused waffle and eggs Benedict are included in the price of whatever prefixed menu you get but if you want anything like a burger or chicken sandwich lobster Mac and cheese etc they start charging you $10-$25 more. I think that’s bogus for brunch. Any brunch you go to those are the typical options and you charge extra for something like a cheeseburger ?! This place has potential but they missed the mark. Waitress leaning over ppl still eating to clear the table, come on man. As a sous chef myself I was more disappointed than everyone else and especially because it was my birthday weekend. It’s a pretty place and music is spot on but that’s all it is. You know all we could’ve done for almost 1k?! I cannot stress how over priced it is. It’s a turnstile!
We had a great time. Food was amazing. Service was outstanding. They asked for the birthday girls name but did not give her a shout out from the dj. They gave us the check right after they served us the dessert, turned the light on at our table and we felt like we were rushed out.
I think that it is overpriced for the amount of food and drink.
Overall Experience Was Amazing , food was great music was good and the ambiance was awesome
GREAT TIME! Especially if your looking for a fun, loud and crazy brunch/dinner. I 100% recommend ! Service was great and food was great !
This place was amazing! Beautiful venue, lively dance floor, very friendly vibes, and an extremely helpful an attentive staff. Also, great drinks at the bar, and very friendly bar tenders.
Anything I needed, I had either a busboy or waiter on it immediately. AMAZNG service! I had so much fun dancing with my friends (and with the dancing robot!!). I’m looking forward to bringing my friends here for my birthday next month!
It was an amazing experience at IL Bastardo. The music and service was great!! I will recommend each and everyone to visit IL Bastardo!!
A 21st birthday celebration they loved the music food drinks everything Would definitely visit again
