Great place for a business lunch or to gather with co-workers after work for a quick drink. Nicer than your average pub, with better food.

I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The Shrimp Risotto soup tasty and the sauteed spinach was refreshing. Service was well-timed and friendly.

Always come for the convenient location off the 2-line. Food is hit or miss and you have to search for servers during meals. Menu is your basic New American. Business lunches and snacks are recommended over dinner service.

Posted menu out of date. We browsed the menu posted on OpenTable when making our reservation. We were disappointed that items that we really wanted were no longer available (e.g. eggs Benedict/full Irish breakfast). Our alternate choices were acceptable- but we wouldn’t have gone there if the correct menu had been posted.

Really awful breakfast buffet. They used to have a nice normal breakfast but no it’s a low end buffet like you would get at a motel in middle America somewhere.. Staff is uninterested in customers. They would be better offer not serving breakfast at all

Such an amazing time! We are staying at the adjoining hotel (Radison) and came here for lunch...then dinner....then brunch.

The food was A M A Z I N G !! The atmosphere was great but the best part of the whole experience was the amazing wait staff!! Twice we were served by "Halit" and once by "Tyra". They were some of the most friendly, knowledgeable, detail oriented staff we've ever had.

When we come to NYC again this place is going to be our first stop.

Went expecting a nice breakfast. Ended up with an overpriced buffet that was reminiscent of the free breakfast at a Hampton Inn. Mind you, the Hampton Inn has always served warm food in my experience.

Very disappointed in the food and atmosphere- too loud. Ordered the Chicken Milanese- dry, overcooked, no sauce, and not tasty. It was like eating shoe leather. I had to ask for tomato sauce just to give it flavor and moisture. My colleague order flat bread pizza- that came cold, they need to heat up the serving platters, although they are wood it absorbs the heat and the food gets colder quickly. The waitress also forgot her side dish of Spinach- she was new, and poorly trained. Her spinach came at the end of the meal. Stick to burgers they looked good, but the steak fries are wimpy looking fries in a basket. They need to do better.

I would recommend it for 2 people but sit in the bar area. The noise level in back was intolerable. We were trying to conduct a business lunch with 3 people and could barely hear. Food was quite good, I had the mango salad special. Service was acceptable but waiter did not remember who had what. Timely delivery of food. Good location.

I work across the street from this restaurant and finally gave it a try for lunch, and would certainly return. It's not cheap, thus not a daily lunch destination.

The best part was the service - accommodating and friendly.

We had the bailey burger (or whatever it's called) and it was good, but they forgot the onion jam, so be sure you get that, as it's good. Also had the chicken Milanese, which is nicely pounded/thin.

Hosts were bumbling, and service was mediocre--as if we were somehow bothering the waitress by existing--but this all makes sense given how horrible the food was. Charcuterie plate had meat so dry I thought it was just a sliced up Slim Jim, and cheese very clearly from the local crappy supermarket. The pot pie? Sloppy vegetables with a bun--a literal bun of bread--slapped on top. Shepard's Pie? Hamburger helper. Think sloppy joe, but with dried up mashed potatoes nuked to oblivion on top. And all of this for the low low price of entirely too much. This place only survives because of its location.

Both my wife, Kat & I absolutely enjoyed our meal and service at the Bailey!!!

I treated my wife, Kat and myself for dinner at Bailey on Sunday, May 19th, 2019 to celebrate our Happy Five Year Relationship Anniversary!!!

We found our meals to be superbly delicious and we both tip our hat to the service provided by our waiter, Halit!!!

We recommend all of our family and friends to dine at Bailey!!!

There are a lot of eating choices in the Financial District but not a lot of options for a sit down that are reasonably priced, have good food and a tolerable level of noise. Bailey stands out as one that is a good choice for a one on one meeting.

Being one of three people in the entire restaurant at 11am for brunch. You would think the home fries would have been served hot. The toast wasn’t at all toasty or brown.
