The food was very good. We enjoyed several appetizers as well as the rigatoni. We split everything and found it to be enough. We enjoyed all the food we ordered and portions were excellent!

Sauvignon blanc was tasty, but expensive. Expensive overall and smaller portions, but the food was very good, as was the service. We ordered the crispy artichokes, seared scallops and burrata to start, which were all delicious. I got a special soft shell crab small plate for my entree which was good...I also prefer it sautéed, but this was lightly fried. It was served with a lot of greens, which was a very nice balance though. Made the dish seem lighter. My companions all ordered the rigatoni and loved it. Small portion though, and they wanted more but agreed everyone left full and not over stuffed.

Bedford and Co was a "surprise find". I googled "restaurants in my area and it popped up, having never heard of it before. So very glad I discovered this place. The food was amazing, very flavorful, beautiful presentation, ample amount, broad selection. Nice choice of cocktails. Excellent service. Vibrant after-work bar and small lounge that I will next try out. Wonderful ambiance. The only note is that it seems to be a "business gathering" and the tables were a little close to two large groups of buisness diners...the noise was "tolerable", I just wish my "table for two" wasn't so close to two tables for large parties. But, that wouldn't stop me from going again.

The food was AMAZING. wouldn’t let us sit until everyone was there (even though it was almost empty. Makes zero sense). Little too loud for my liking. Definitely a little pricey but the food was worth it. Portions not too big. Service was not great.

The food was outstanding! I had the market fish of the day (Arctic Char); it was perfectly seasoned and served medium rare. My husband had the pork chop which was delicious. Our server, Margarita, was lovely. She was unobtrusive but always present to keep our glasses filled. This was a very pleasant dining experience.

I've been to Bedford & Company on numerous occasions. I even had a vegan friend who came with me for dinner one night and the staff is always accommodating. This time was no different. My friends were celebrating an engagement and they were there for the first time. They loved it. Always a crowd pleaser.

My date and I started with the head-on shrimp, which was well-seasoned. We also split the squid ink spaccatelli. The entree of duck breast had a great mandarin sauce, and the rye brownie with the candied walnuts and vanilla bean gelato was a great dessert to share. Our waiter was very warm and had recommendations based on our food preferences. I would highly recommend Bedford & Co to anyone looking for a quiet, inviting spot for a dinner date.

Disappointed. Staff was nice and food was fresh but average flavor. Place was empty and they couldn’t give us customer service. Coffee was cold and they happily replaced it. I had to ask for a refill. They got my order wrong the first time. The second time it was missing an ingredient. Too pricey for this level of service. Much better places around.

Previously had a great meal here but noted that it was rather loud. Opted to give it another try and was rewarded with still terrific food and service, with a more acceptable noise level. The bar area is still swinging with lots of people having lots of good fun, but especially the back dining area allowed us to share the vibe while being able to converse better. The whole gestalt is fun and the food (esp. arctic char special) was if anything better than the first time. This is a very handy place to meet people who need to catch a train out of Grand Central to go home.

While the food was good, the service was unlike anything I've ever seen. Our waitress was nowhere to be seen. It was very difficult to place our lunch order and once food arrived, they never came back to the table to see if we wanted anything else. We would have ordered wine and dessert, but it was impossible to find someone. By the time the waitress came back, we were done with the meal and ready for the check. The service ruined our entire experience and I would not go back or recommend.

The food was delicious, creative -- a little pricey but not at all outrageous. Our waiter was eager and friendly, but service was very slow. The place was having a bad day and someone in management really dropped the ball. Despite the fact that my party had a Sunday Brunch reservation days in advance, we were kept waiting for a table for 45 minutes, while a portion of the restaurant remained empty. Once inside, it was frantic, crazy and noisy - we learned from one of the staff that a party of 70 (!) had booked a baby shower, and it was obvious that the restaurant was not able to handle that along with their regular customers. Tables are close together and we were unfortunate enough to have a noisy bachelorette party adjacent to us.

I had eaten breakfast and lucnh here on two previous occasions and has a very good experience, and I like the dark & cozy atmosphere (it was perfect for a gray NY Sunday afternoon). However, I was really disappointed on this trip.

We loved our dining experience at Bedford and Co. The food was amazing- we shared the 40 oz ribeye between four of us with sides and salads- yum! The service was exemplary as well. Small restaurant ambiance we a relaxed vibe. Would highly recommend Bedford and Co.

Disappointed. The food was average. The server forgot my salad dressing. The menu dis not specify the spaghetti had a meat sauce. I don’t eat meat but I was so hungry I ate it anyway. The food took forever to arrived. Apparently the chicken dish takes awhile and we were never told that. The coffee was not fresh. Way too expensive for what you got. Would not go back.
