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."
Dined on 1/22/2014
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."
Dined on 12/17/2013
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."
Dined on 12/13/2013
I highly recommend Trading Post.
Everything we ate was delicious and we love the atmosphere."

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

Had a great Thanksgiving dinner.
Everyone enjoyed their meal. We will be back again. Can't wait to have brunch here."
Dined on 11/28/2013
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!"
Dined on 11/19/2013
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."
Dined on 11/8/2013
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!"
Dined on 11/3/2013
Excellent food and menu. Great if
you work in the Financial District and need a restaurant to brink clients. Food was outstanding."
Dined on 10/21/2013
A bit disappointed with this
one... Food was good but music was so loud that I had to yell to speak."
Dined on 10/17/2013
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."
Dined on 10/12/2013
A nice, local place in Financial
District for lunch. Can carry on a conversation easily and food is good."
Dined on 10/8/2013
I am so thrilled to have a great
restaurant in the neighborhood finally. It has the perfect ambience for almost any occasion and the perfect menu for any time of day. The staff is friendly and accommodating and the food is truly excellent."
Dined on 10/5/2013
Great food but tough location to
find. A little out of the way but worth the journey."
Dined on 10/1/2013
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."

A great. Restaurant 1 block from
south street seaport. Very good food Good bar excellent service . We especially enjoyed the watermelon salads And raw plateau . Great choice for an after tall ship ride"
Dined on 9/11/2013
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."

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!"
Dined on 9/7/2013
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."
Dined on 8/23/2013
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!"
Dined on 9/5/2013
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."
Dined on 8/29/2013
The relaxed atmosphere a huge plus
and the food choices were varied, something to please everyone and we had a rather large group. Everyone totally enjoyed their meal, from the lobster scrambled eggs to the burger and fries.The Bloody Mary and Mojito were excellent, the Mimosa very plain, a strawberry would have been a nice touch. While the hostess and wait servers were friendly we would have appreciated a bit more attentiveness. The location is great and will certainly visit again."
Dined on 8/25/2013
Excellent food, great drinks,
perfect for groups, after work drinks and the brunch is excellent"
Dined on 8/21/2013
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"
Dined on 8/16/2013
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!"
Dined on 7/28/2013
Came for a Bday party that had (8)
guests total. The waitress assigned to our table was slow to arrive, and when she did, did not know the specials, screwed up three drink orders and forgot who actually ordered what...nothing life changing but nonetheless kind of annoying. The place is great, the drinks were good and the food even better. I would come back regardless of the service."
Dined on 7/27/2013
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."
Dined on 7/12/2013
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."
Dined on 7/1/2013
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. Enjoy!"
