Diner Reviews
  • "This is great spot for casual and business dining - have enjoyed both lunch and dinner a number of times. I brought fairly large groups twice and everyone loved it. Can be noisy when the after-work crowd fills the bar area. Has cosy niche spaces for romantic dining. Upstairs feels like a library and is usually quieter."

  • "Just west of the Seaport, this is a great spot for lunch. Dark glossy woods/interior (trading post? sort of nautical looking and comfortable...) and good space between the tables. Made for a good business lunch, as we could actually hear each other. Lobster BLT was a crowd pleaser, and a chicken kale salad was very tasty."

  • "Perhaps we were expecting too much, but we found the Trading Post to be just OK. Nothing wrong, but nothing exceptional, either. Perhaps we went with expectations too high? But, the razor clams, while pretty good, didn't have a lot of clams in them. My colossal shrimp entrée had exactly 4 good sized, but not colossal, shrimp. And they weren't that crisp texture really fresh shrimp has. Again, not bad, but not great, either. The penne special with chicken was bland. The service was fine, but only that. Waitress took our order, the food came, and we got the check. We did like the décor. Lots of little places to sit and eat where you aren't right on top of the table next to you. But, overall, I probably won't go back. It just wasn't special."

  • "Fantastic mussels! The chicken was cooked perfectly...moist on the inside with a crispy skin and the truffle potatoes were the perfect complement. My husband's short ribs were also amazing, rich and tender. Adam, our waiter, was fantastic and added to the entire evening. We'll definitely go back next time we're in New York."

  • "The place is a newly renovated cross between a pub a saloon and a speak easy with lots of secret enclaves leather chairs and wood panelling. It's lively in the bar or white table cloth upstairs. The service is great. The food is as good or better than anything else in the area. Try the cheese sample....perfect."

  • "This beautiful bar/restaurant has a fresh menu and great beer selection. Ambience is cozy and elegant. You can choose quiet and private or talk in the bar. Kale salad was fresh and delicious and sides were excellent. Will return."

  • "What sounded amazing in print was just good. Pork Belly sliders- how can you miss? But the pork belly was overcooked instead of soft with a crispy finish- it was a bit chewy and overcooking makes it lose its flavor. The sauce was pretty good, so it just missed. The beet salad promised goat cheese, I thought, but bits of blue cheese were thrown in. Disconcerting, even though I like both cheeses... I don't like them mixed. It's close to my apartment in lower Manhattan, so I was a little bummed that it's not fit for a discerning foodie such as myself. But my friend liked her lobster mac n cheese. The Super Tuscan wine was delicious, too, and the prices were reasonable."

  • "Quick service, great for a mid-week treat! Lobster BLT is awesome! Service was quick, servers polite and efficient! I will return to try more dishes. BTW- menu is separated into small dishes and large dishes to make your selection easier."

  • "This place was a good dinner out with a friend. The service was and the ambience was definitely something I enjoyed especially on a wednesday night. Probably a good after work drinks spot too."

  • "Really love the ambience in the beautifully renovated space. This place used to be the Yankee Clipper which had a lot of history for those of us who are in the insurance business! Great place for a date of afterwork drinks with colleagues."

  • "I took a friend from my country and we had a great time there! Both wine and food, especially seafood appetizers were great. And great steak. Staff there was attentive. Hope they keep this restaurant forever!"

  • "A bit off the beaten track, almost to South Street on John, but a great spot. It balance seemingly contradicting characteristics in perfect harmony. It's full of cozy nooks for romantic cuddling or small groups but within a huge space if you want to have a big party. Also, it has a large full bar along with the scene, especially after work, but can go there just for a dinner with truly excellent food, from a spectacular raw bar, to slow braised short ribs, classic dishes, and a super lobster mac that's called a side, but is rich and filling. It's decor is suited to the "old seaport" in a long, old, low rise building lined with dark wood paneling in line with its "trading post" name but without being too theme-y."

  • "...maybe throw a new chef in with the deal, too. This place really needs to bring up its game if it's going to make it."

  • "We went to TP as a group of 9 because for the neighborhood it had a menu with a nice range at not ridiculous prices. Maybe they can't handle larger parties but the service was distinctly lacking. A t least one order (mine) arrived cold and it was a chore to get beverage orders filled (much less correctly) or otherwise get attention from the staff. I liked the room.I wanted to like the food. Based on this visit, I just don't know that I'd tell anyone to spend money there."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "So, we ordered brunch and asked for a platter of Oysters and Jumbo Shrimp as our appetizer. About 30 minutes later, our brunch order arrived (one of which was incorrect). And then about 5 minutes afterward, our appetizer arrived. We told the waitress we no longer needed an appetizer as our brunch orders had already been delivered and she graciously took it back."

  • "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."

  • "We were seated in the upstairs section which for the nite was not good placement for our date nite. Service was kind and friendly, but slow. They had a large party going on and the noise seemed to din and dull based on the conversation at hand from their table. Not a large menu. We are used to more selections. Overall ok. Wine by the glass came in a mini carafe and a good selection! We went straight to entrees since we had a show to catch. Had the lobster Mac n cheese ( taste much better if you're eating them together). Flatbread spicy shrimp and the pork chop. For dessert we had the apple cobbler (which took a while to get) but worth the wait! Overall ok! Not dying to go back, but would."

  • "I attended a group event at Trading Post - the service was great and the food was really wonderful. They had a great mix of appetizers and they were all terrific. I made a reservation for a business lunch a few days later. They seated us in the bar and it was very loud and the service was very slow. The waitress was working hard and was pleasant and capapble but it appeared that they did not have enough servers for the very busy lunch rush. Also - there was a very loud group of tourists right next to us so it was difficult to converse. The steak on the steak salad was a little overcooked but the lobster mac and cheese was great."
    Dined on 11/6/2013
  • "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!"

  • "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."

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."
