You accommodated an ad hocYou accommodated an ad hoc retirement lunch for a large group of us, and you handled it with such aplomb. Thank you! The service was warm and attentive. The food was excellent (as always). And the ambiance was so peaceful and comfortable.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSuch a great restaurant andSuch a great restaurant and especilaly in this otherwise-dismal neighborhood. Excellent food, lovely/warm service, quiet enough for conversation (!), and a true "neighborhood gem". A good menu with a great prix-fix deal at lunch.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant near Penn StationCooper's Tavern is a real gem. Who knew a restaurant that's nestled in a hotel would be so reasonable and good. The street entrance is a challenge as it's a pair of doors that create a wind vaccuum so that one has to close before you can open the second one, but once you get past that hurdle the interior is fine. Comfortable booths, and I've never been there when it was too noisy to chat comfortably. All you can eat mussels appetizer is a delight, and the portions overall are extremely generous. Staff is attentive without hovering. We go there whenever we need to meet friends or business acquaintances in that neighborhood.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGood menu, terrific food,Good menu, terrific food, warm service, quiet and peaceful ambiance.

I obviously don't patron places where I don't think the food will be good, but I was a little surprised at Cooper's. Hands down, to date, the best burger I've had in NYC. Yes, HUGE claim in a place where you can get a burger on just about every block in the city. It was cooked perfect, had a great taste, awesome onions and smoked cheese, and accompanied by yummy fries. I didn't go there for a burger, but glad it was what I decided to order.
Nicely done, I will be back for another one soon!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
