This is a bar so it really is more fitting for those who want a drink or two versus coffee.

Was looking for a casual restaurant before heading to a play Sunday evening. The fireplace was warm and cozy and the food was excellent. Loved the fresh ingredients in their bean tacos, the salads and the vegetable egg rolls. Delightful experience.

It was quiet when we came for lunch so we were a little worried that the food would not be good but were pleasantly surprised.

It’s a bar atmosphere with a terrific menu. The manager opened the dining room for us because one of us couldn’t sit on a high stool. Cozy charming. Reasonable prices. Excellent service

Although they did not recognize my face or my name (lol), it was a nice place. High and low tables provide for a nice atmosphere. Mac and Cheese was yummy for app, mini burgers were mini alright, breakfast tacos were very good and would make a great app for the table - they are mini and you get many of them. Server was nice and prompt. Overall, I would recommend.

We were comfortably seated in the back away from the bar. My husband had a burger and I had the chicken tacos. We also ordered the fried mozzarella balls and pretzel bites and it was WAY TOO MUCH FOOD! Loved everything about the experience.

This was my first time here and I was shocked about the inside. There were very few regular tables. It looked more like a lounge than a restaurant & there was hardly anyone there. But, my burger was great and the onion rings were good. Our waitress was really attentive and nice so it was a good meal. I was just surprised by how it looked more like a lounge than a restaurant. We were there for lunch so maybe it comes alive & fills up during the evening hours.

Our waiter/host Adam was the hilarious! He kept us laughing all evening and provided outstanding service. Food was excellent, good selection of drinks and a very
generous pour on the whiskey. Couldn’t have found a better place. They even pulled together several tables to accommodate our 10 person last minute group.

We loved this place. One night was a walk in and another we’d booked. Both times we received a warm welcome. The food, service, drinks and atmosphere was fabulous. We’ll definitely go back if/when we return to New York!

My wife enjoyed our visit on Saturday so much that we delayed our ride home on Sunday for an encore. We will be here every time we’re in NYC. Out of 5 stars - we give them a 6 driven by top notch staff.

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.
