We went to Faces and Names before a Sunday matinee. The interior is welcoming and warm. We sat at a table near the fireplace (was not lit as it gets too hot). Nice and quiet - allowed us to have a conversation. Food was good. Simple pub food but good. Our server Jane was charming. Nice choice for a bite and drink before of after the theater.

Every time I take people there we get the best service in town. They give us plenty of time to select items and to linger over coffee. The staff never is in the way; they seem to know what we are going to do before we do it and are ready for us. This restaurant is the best secret in Midtown

As a lounge it may be ok. For a dining experience, not so much. Small pour wine portions are always annoying. Food was mediocre at best. Maybe a place for a quick cocktail, but not to hang.

The food was tasty and service was friendly. There was a lot of seating available too, which was nice. Their cocktail list was pretty small, but they made up for it with their beers and list of top-shelf liquors.

I love one sandwich and the ambience at Faces and Names, but I swear, I'm going to start ordering what I DON'T want because I think I'll have a better chance of having what I do want come out of the kitchen. This place has never, not once, not screwed up my order. This time, chose salad option instead of fries and fries came out. The wait staff is surly and they don't know their own menu. Me: no cheese on that please. Waitress: it doesn't come with chess. Me: we it say mozzarella on the menu so can you please make sure it doesn't have it. I'm not entirely sure why I keep going back. Once they do get the mushroom sandwich order right, it's really good. Super loud this time around tho. You couldn't hear anything but yelling.

We had two vegetarians in our group. We both ordered the mushroom sandwich, which I've had before and is very good. We ordered one without cheese and one with. Waited repeated the order back to us. Both came with cheese, so we sent one back. What came back was a reuben, which made us check the other sandwich: also a reuben. Luckily, my friend hadn't bitten into it. We tried to send both back, and the waiter argued that even the mushroom sandwich has meat on it (it's not listed that way on the menu, and it doesn't come with meat). We had to argue with our waiter just to get what we ordered!! Still, I'll come back because maybe he is one bad egg. The food here is really good and fairly priced for this area. Plus, the ambiance is pretty cool. Sit by the fireplace.

What a wonderful, fairly-priced place in Midtown. The hostess was kind enough to seat us by the fireplace even though the table was huge and we were only a party of 3. The atmosphere was comfy and casual. My only complaint is the shrimp cocktail, which tasted like, well, nothing. The other food was so so, except for the mushroom sandwich, which was surprisingly delightful. I'd come back.

A very disappointing experience. It took close to 90 minutes for us to our meals, even though we told our server we had theater tickets & she put a "Rush" on our order.

When we did get our food, it was not correct & one of the meals had to be sent back. When it came back, it was still not correct & I told them to just take it off the bill. The other order (omelette) came with cold hash browns that couldn't be eaten.

We basically wasted 1:45 and didn't even eat.

I've been there after a matinee and it's packed with a young-ish after-work crowd. A friend told me brunch is a great bargain so we went on Saturday before our show two blocks west.

"Great bargain" is the correct term. You have about eight choices for a brunch costing $12.95. And that includes a very good bloody mary, normally $10 on the bar menu. And when of the two sides is a mound of crisp bacon. Two fillings I picked for a good omelet were prosciutto and swiss cheese. Plus home fries. $12.95! Despite blaring rap music and the going-through-the-motions hostess who doubled as our waitress, I'd definitely go back for this deal.

I have been to Faces and Names for lunch twice. Both times not crowded at all so you can hear the person you're with. There is a great set up by the fireplace for group gathering. The bar is great. I will definitely go back.
