WHITEHALL Bar + Kitchen
Good food and service. OurGood food and service. Our tabel was in the bar area and the Friday evneing after work crowd made it noisy. but an excellent restaurant.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance, great foodI 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.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe front room with the barThe 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.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and ambienceGreat food. Bar scene is tough with limited room. Seating in rear is btter: quieter and less crowded. Really good. Try the pork chop.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMsuch a cute place. the foodsuch a cute place. the food is good and the service is excellent. i had added in my opentable reservation that it was my friend's birthday and the desert we ordered came with a candle.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have dined here three timesWe 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 service4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friend and I enjoyed WhitehallMy 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.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBravo!!! What a meal. IBravo!!! 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.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect 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!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time there and lovedFirst 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.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
