First time there and loved it. Unfortunately my date didn't turn out the same way. Great place - book in advance though. Great atmosphere at the bar.

Whitehall was a solid surprise.
Whitehall was a solid surprise. Cocktails were well made, and boozy brussel sprouts were delicious - we couldn't stop eating them. The pork chop was slightly overcooked and dry in the middle, but tasty nonetheless. Overall, a positive experience.

Perfect for Saturday Night Dinner!
Great experience at Whitehall. The atmosphere is energetic and the decor is really clean and well done. Great location in the heart of the West Village. I thought the service was great and the staff was really attentive and friendly. The food was excellent as well. I wish they would experiment with more non gin based cocktails (I am a bourbon fan), but that is there trademark and I knew that going in. That being said, the gin based cocktails were great. Excellent time!

Bravo!!! What a meal. I
Bravo!!! What a meal. I was beginning to think that I am just way too picky. It is nice to fine a place that i can really rave about. We sat in the back room, which is a little bit quieter. The ambiance is very casual but cool. Do not miss the Lamb Chops. We had the Squid app, which was perfection. The fruit tart for desert was another homerun. Oh yes, do not forget to have a before dinner cocktail.

My friend and I enjoyed Whitehall
My friend and I enjoyed Whitehall from the moment we walked in. The music was quite loud and we asked if they would lower it - they did, immediately. It wasn't very crowded when we got there, partly, because it was Easter. I suspect that on any other night it would have been noisier and more crowded (hence the "moderate" for noise level.The service was excellent, the food delicious and beautifully presented. Nice wine list, friendly but not overbearing staff. Definitely will go back.

We have dined here three times
We have dined here three times and have enjoyed our experience each time The menu is a mix of standard dishes prepared with an Aussie flair that makes them unique and tasty! (Was told that the chef is Australian) The front of the restaurant is a little louder and has a active bar while the back is more quiet with a warm and cozy feel. The wait staff is trained to express their personality and give excellent service

Drinks were exceptional (No.
Drinks were exceptional (No. 4 & No. 11 were fantastic). Butternut Squash Salad was very refreshing and perfect to split for 2 people. I had the cheeseburger, which was a revelation. Friend had the chicken and she thought it was great. Also, the boozy brussel sprouts are quite tasty (boozy because they use scotch butter). Overall, a solid place with great service. Could definitely see myself going back here as a trusted, fall back option if I'm ever in West Village and unsure/unable to find a restaurant.

Good food and ambience
Great food. Bar scene is tough with limited room. Seating in rear is btter: quieter and less crowded. Really good. Try the pork chop.

The front room with the bar
The front room with the bar was raucous and packed when we arrived and left. A great energy for those who wanted a bar scene. But since we were there for dinner, I was pleased to be seated in the back where the noise level was appropriate for conversation. The server was nice and available when needed. The food was timely and delicious. My party had a leisurely dinner which I fear delayed the later reservations but we never felt rushed. So much so, we didn't even realize how long we had been there. Which I think is a testament to the service.
Overall, I believe there are 2 establishments in 1. The bar area was quite a scene but the dining area was comfortable and made for a delightful evening.

Great ambiance, great food
I loved the lighting, exposed brick, and open feeling of the back dining room. Was seated before our reservation time! When we ordered a bottle of wine they didn't have, the sommelier promptly came over and recommended an excellent choice to replace the missing wine. Every morsel of food was great, especially the scallop appetizer with the cashew, Asian inspired relish. It took a few minutes for our server to come over after we were initially seated, but it seemed like she got 3 tables seated at the same time, and that was the only hitch in our service the whole evening. Very interesting dessert, not my favorite but I was glad to try something new (strawberry rhubarb meringue & mousse)! Will definitely come back and recommend to friends.

We had the Whitehall Burger and the British Fry Up. Both were very good, but the burger was outstanding.

Cute restaurant with great
Cute restaurant with great food. Originally went to try the highly reviewed brussel sprouts dish but they were out of season. Got the asparagus instead, along with a green salad and the sea trout dish. All were fabulous. Portions were on the smaller side but overall the experience was delicious. Great ambience. And the wine for $10 was not bad at all, which was surprising (since normally I see barberas for under $14 and usually expect them to be sub par -- sorry if that sounds snooty; it's more an unfortunate reflection of how overpriced good wines from italy are). I highly recommend this place!

Came here on Saturday night for dinner with friends. Thought the ambience up front was great, and the quieter dining area in the back worked well for dinner and conversation. Enjoyed the food - had the burger which was cooked perfectly. Enjoyed the meal, and would come back.

Great Burgers and amazing drinks!
This is a great restaurant with an amazing atmosphere. Anything that I've ever ordered here was top notch.

So glad I found you!
I've been to Whitehall now 4 times and I love it here so much. As a New Yorker that eats out often, the meals start to blend together and you can't remember what you ate or where you ate it. I always remember my meals at Whitehall and how fresh and tasty everything is. And love their wine list too and the staff is awesome.
See you guys soon!

Gem of a place
A wonderful spot. Very interesting, tasty food. Bar area upfront is sceney and boisterous bu the exposed brick dining room behind is cozy and quieter, so you can either go more hipster or old school depending on your mood. Loved Whitehall.

The food and décor at Whitehall
The food and décor at Whitehall was terrific. It did get VERY NOISY though, starting at around 9:00.

Came recommended from a local friend. Great food
The (1) prawns and (2) tuna were both as good as it gets. Refreshingly light but substantial enough to constitute a meal. Fantastic ambiance as well

Had a wonderful meal here
Had a wonderful meal here a couple of nights ago. The food and service were perfect don't let the English theme but you off if you're a Brit in NYC add it's more the decor than the food. Even though quite quiet on there night we went still a nice atmosphere definitely a restaurant to remember.

A tasty dining experience
We truly enjoyed dining here and I plan on returning soon. Service was excellent. However, menu items and the portion sizes are those of a Michelin restaurant. We started with the grilled fresh figs salad special and it was outstanding. Next we had pan roasted grouper but it is more like a bouillabaisse with pasta served in a soup bowl. It was enjoyable but a very very small dish for $28. We also had the Pork Chop which was tasty but honestly half the size of most restaurants portion size. With all that said, the food was so good, I am willing to pay their pricey menu prices and return again in the future.

Excellent little place
Great oysters; top-notch duck confit special; friendly and chatty service.
Slightly tight quarters, but it's NYC - what do you expect?

You can't go wrong with WhiteHALL.
You can't go wrong with WhiteHALL. From the service to the menu and the food--whenever I am in town I make sure to stop in. The owner's provide personal service, the crowd is nicely dressed and chic, and the energy marvelous. If you haven't been you're missing out! Thanks WhiteHALL! Can't wait for my next visit!

Recommended as a fun place
And I was not let down in the least...from the fine staff greeting us throughout the eve...wonderful, engaging staff to compliment the food. Their knowledge of the dishes was spot on. Great ambiance. The noise level was just fine. I do understand that Thursdays and weekends it is energetic but earlier in the week, am amazing spot for a intimate group. Well, well done in every way!

We had an early dinner (by NYC standards!), so it was very quiet when we first got there, but was buzzing a little more by the time we left. We had the whole back of the restaurant to ourselves for the first hour or so, so book after 8pm if you prefer some company around you! Other than that, the service was very friendly, and the food was great. Had the crab and linguine pasta. Delicious!

Good Ol' Reliable in West Village.
I enjoy this establishment. The signature drinks are really tasty and even better during Happy Hour, as they are half price then (Mon-Fri: 5-8pm)! Their burgers are good and reliable. Their "Pigs in a Blanket" are good and for sharing. The servers are friendly, helpful and accommodating, as long as they are not swamped w/ too many tables at once. They have many TV screens and our server made sure to put the game we requested, the screens closest to our table. I hope to be back soon!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been to Whitehall several times and it never disappoints. Our last meal there I had the bass, my husband the pork and our guests the duck and the steak. Everything was delicious. The wine & beer selection is always good. It has a great lively vibe. We will be back.
