Despite having the name of a grandparent-friendly country club in the West Village, Harwood on Hudson is actually an Italian restaurant with a 7/10 volume level and people drinking cocktails as if someone from high school had just texted them “u up?”. If you’re in your thirties and like to spend money on dates as a part-time hobby, there’s a good chance you’ll be all about this romantic, but not quite formal spot. The food is mostly good, especially the rigatoni and strawberry cobbler dessert. Harwood on Hudson will certainly work for a nicer date if you’ve got the money to spend, but there are also other places in the neighborhood we’d go to first in the same category.
Harwood on Hudson is permanently closed.
