We had brunch here on Sunday
We had brunch here on Sunday and were very pleased with the size and appearance of portions. We all 4 enjoyed what we ate and the price was right.

diverse, fresh, menu
Punch has a very nice, diverse, menu -- although their hint of Asian is spread all across the choices. We enjoyed an asparagus special appetizer and beet salad that were fresh and generous. The bread basket was tasty enough that we left none behind. Pasta bolognese, tuna tartare and the fun fish and chips were all devoured. Very nice presentation, just a little short on staff/

A pleasant spot for dinner
A pleasant spot for dinner or drinks. Even at the furthest table from the bar, it's a little noisy, but not too bad. The food is good, the service is friendly, overall a nice experience.

Went for friend's birthday brunch..
We all went with the brunch special which included your choice of entrée, a basket of mini muffins and multi grain bread and unlimited brunch cocktails for two hours. The food was delicious and our waiter was generous with the cocktails. Stress free, low key restaurant with an attentive wait staff - I will be back.

Good but Noise level is high
Punch is a fun spot to have a quick bite. The bar scene dominates, so the noise level is high.

If you're looking for a small and unknown gem this is the place. Great food and service, but it can be a little noisy.

Sunday Lunch was a pleasant surpris
I was in a party of 3 that arrived one hour after brunch, which ends at 4. We had reservations, so there was no wait. No other people were in the restaurant anyway, at this time, except a few people at the bar enjoying a Sunday cocktail. My party decided to stay for dinner and it was truly worth it. The ambiance was relaxing and serene. The lights were low and the music was at a level that made you feel you were a Starbucks. Both the food and the service were outstanding and the price was decent as well. For 3 adults, the bill was $99.00. We started with 2 appetizers for the table before having our own individual entrees. Overall, I recommend Punch Restaurant.

Convenient location and pretty good
I showed up 15min early and got seated before my friend arrived. The service was great when the single hostess/waitress was available to spend the time with my table... but otherwise she spent a lot of time running back and forth catering to everyone else in the restaurant, including the bar/lounge area (and it was still happy hour). The dinner menu options were decent and I was excited that there was a hard cider to choose from since I'm not a beer drinker. I had the cod over truffle mashed potatoes. I was hoping the cod would be more crispy on the outside and flavorful overall. The truffle mash was not vibrant enough either - the flavor fell just a little flat for TRUFFLE! ...but the veggies were cooked perfect for me. Overall still good.

Great for visitors to NYC
Researched neighborhood restaurants and found Punch - terrific food and friendly service. Will recommend to relatives and friends who live in New York!

Very interesting menu and
Very interesting menu and delicious food. We've been back since this initial visit and it was still good but not as impressive as the first time around.

We celebrated a friend's birthday with their PF brunch. An entree and unlimited drinks for 29.95 - amazing value, particularly as the entree options included lobster and ham benedict. I had the Niçoise salad which was delicious. I'll definitely be back!

I took a friend to Punch for drinks and appetizers who visiting NYC. We both loved it. Ordered the potato skins and fried calamari which were equally good. The potato skins were very tasty, and a more sophisticated version of what you may have encountered. The ambience was nice and the open doors allowed a nice breeze inside. I always feel pressure to choose just the right place when entertaining out of town visitors. I was pleased as...well, Punch...with my decision to go here.

will be back
The brunch selections were varied and inventive. But how do you serve a $20 eggs and lobster benedict that has a lukewarm soggy english muffin and no Hollandaise? Envied my friends' meals as they looked and tasted great. Been here in years past, so I know they are usually reliable.

Nice spot for a girls night out...
We were group of 7 ladies celebrating a friend's last night in town. The restaurant had nice décor and great vibe. It was very accommodating when we asked to rush the food order because we also had another reservation afterwards. The food was good, overall. The shredded chicken quesadilla appetizer was delicious, as was the lobster spaghetti and the hangar steak. The tuna tartar and the mushroom ravioli were lacking a little flavor- they were a bit bland. Two of us ordered turkey burgers and they were good- the sweet potato fries were amazing! We all enjoyed the cocktails and had a great time!

A Gramercy Brunch
I have been working in Gramercy for the past 2 years and never stepped into Punch. I checked out the menu for brunch and was sold! It was everything I was expecting, from great service to food. The drinks were also nice and gave me the right buzz. I will be back soon!

I always enjoy Punch for the food and the feel of the place. On our most recent visit, a 6 pm table on a Sunday, the service was uncharacteristically slow and the reason was obvious - one, obviously multi talented woman was responsible for hosting, bartending, and waiting. Maybe management should provide her a little backup?
As always, the tempura green beans were delicious.

Surprise Birthday Dinner
We went there for my friends surprise birthday dinner on a Tuesday night. The staff was great! very accommodating because 1) our reservation number kept changing, 2) let me decorate our table and 3) sang a beautiful rendition of happy birthday! The waitress was super sweet! The food was also great! We ordered some appetizers to share and each had our on entree but shared that as well. String bean app was my favorite! I had a scallop special which was delicious!
While I have never experienced, some of the friends who came to the birthday dinner also said this place was awesome for brunch! I def plan on going back to try it!
