Trading Post has opened in
Trading Post has opened in the South St seaport area, after years of this spot lacking a viable restaurant. Place is lovely, though a little dark for dining (lights were dimmed mid-meal, little too dim). Food (salads, burgers and a great cobbler) was delicious; not inexpensive, but better than an average gastropub. Service was awesome and very friendly. I have extreme high hopes for this new establishment!

Go to the Seaport!
This was a good find, very relaxes and welcoming. Our only complaint is that the portions are tooooo bid. Cut it down, and then cut the prices a tad please. We did eat for days, though.

I'm thrilled such a beautiful & yummy place opened in FiDi! They have a fantastic layout, with beautiful details. Private rooms, huge bar & seating area & a very accommodating staff. We went for brunch and plan on returning soon for dinner. We enjoyed some whiskey and wine also along with a yummy chocolate cake!
They had a decent whiskey list (my husband is a big whiskey drinker and he was moderately happy) and a good beer selection too.

Great bar food & hidden bar areas
This new gem is perfect for small groups with hidden secluded bar areas, downstair club rooms and the main noisy friendly wrap around. The bar food was very good - best fried oysters. Dinner menu was delish - fresh salmon perfectly grilled with a lite char. Solid wine list by the glass. Special bar drinks were fresh takes on the usual.
Make reservations since the dinning areas are small. Place stays open till 2am and really felt comfortable closing the place. Staff and management really personable. Ate there twice in 24 hours and was not disappointed.

Great food, great decor
Although it's only been open a short time, I've already been there twice. Each time the food was outstanding. I menu has something for everyone. I highly recommend the steak and potato flatbread. The burger was enormous and delicious. Great spot!

Nestled gem in South Street Seaport
Went here for lunch and probably not a true indication of the noise level, but I really enjoyed the meal. Nice ambiance and a pretty big Bar gave this place a nice feel. Better than average Pub food as the menu was expansive as well as the Beer on tap selection. Would definitely go again and recommend to friends that were going to be done in that area

Best crab cakes. Ever.
My friends and I have a 'family meeting' once a month and this month i invited everyone down to my 'hood. I had never been to the TP but wanted to try it. the food was great... doubled up on crab cake app to share... so amazing. and remarkably affordable. has a great downstairs bar that might be the place to rent out for a small party. excellent all around.

Went here for a date. Ambiance
Went here for a date. Ambiance is dimly lit, quiet, and private. Service and food were fantastic. After dinner, check out the bar downstairs, it's pretty great.

We were booked for a late night cruise and wanted a restaurant in the area. The Trading Post was mentioned in a couple of reviews so we thought we'd give it a try. It's been beautifully renovated and the service was excellent. Not a huge space - when you walk in there is a lively bar scene on the right, but we found an intimate dining area just to the left (which we had to ourselves) that was perfect. I highly recommend the corn/crab soup - fabulous!

A Family Celebration
We enjoyed a Saturday brunch at the Trading Post to celebrate several special family occasions - birthdays, anniversary, etc. We were very pleased with the quality of the food, the attentivness of service, and the ambience. In fact, when we made the reservation online, we had asked to be seated in quiet location - and the host did so without being reminded.
A great find!

The food was amazing and the
The food was amazing and the service was extremely friendly. The historic art on the walls, including a map of New Amsterdam from 1664, is not to be missed--especially if you're a NYC/American History nerd like me. The bar tender gave us a special tour of the "the Snug" and the Whiskey Bar downstairs--which has hand crafted leather chairs from Ireland, and looks like it will be a great spot for winter cocktails. I highly recommend a trip there for Brunch--all of the savory egg dishes we tried were outstanding. I look forward to coming back for lunch or dinner. As a local resident, I very much welcome the addition of a new (but historic) and high quality restaurant.

Great lunch place in FiDi
The staff is very helpful and nice. My friend came 30 minutes late and they did not rush us.
The tables in the front room are not too close to each others, so you can have a quiet discussion without your neighbors listening to you, which is appreciable in this business district.
The menu is short but very tasty. I highly recommend the pappardelle. We shared the spicy shrimps flatbread and the bread was crispy and the toppings full of flavors. The wine list includes a good price range and a good selection of quality bottles. The wine by the glass are much better than the usual house wine. A good spot a few blocks away from my office, so I am grateful that they open this nice place in a landmark building refurbished after Sandy.

Great food but tough location
Great food but tough location to find. A little out of the way but worth the journey.

Nice for lunch
A nice, local place in Financial District for lunch. Can carry on a conversation easily and food is good.

Service & Food-very good
Polite and warm staff that tend to our every need. Food presentation and taste was exquisite. Close to the seaport too. Definitely will eat here again.

Great for Wall Street Dinner
Excellent food and menu. Great if you work in the Financial District and need a restaurant to brink clients. Food was outstanding.

Excellent food, great service
Everything we had was substantial, from the reimagined razor clams with cubes of bacon & butternut squash to the not-to-be-missed lobster mac & cheese (had almost a full lobster in there for a side dish!) and the rock shrimp risotto special was great too. Service was great, friendly staff. We'll certainly be back!

great addition to the neighborhood
The second time we ate at the Trading Post, we were seated upstairs, which was warm, inviting and much quieter than the main level. This is a great alternative, if you are not interested in the bar scene. We enjoyed the food and the service.

New downtown star
Downtown lunch dining options are limited. Trading Post is an excellent addition. Food is super, service good, and ambience is great if you are seated in the back - very private and quiet. Try the duck pappadelle!

Had a great Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone enjoyed their meal. We will be back again. Can't wait to have brunch here.

I went there for the first time with colleagues and enjoyed it very much; very close to the office with good menu selection.

I highly recommend Trading Post. Everything we ate was delicious and we love the atmosphere.

Cozy, fun and DELICIOUS
Reservations were easy to make, I called ahead and let the restaurant know this would be a special occasion dinner so the reserved a booth -- a little tucked away private area for me and my party. I cannot say enough nice things about the service leading up to and during dinner, and everything we ate was amazing. Really highly recommend this place. Classy, cozy and the menu is fantastic.
