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.
Friend and I went for pretheatre dinner. Buffalo chicken salad and eggplant sandwich with warm pretzels. All was delicious. Our waitress, Annette, was fantastic. Great service!
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!
Great place for a meet prior to show at City Center - good wine list and choices of appetizers. Had a reservation and glad we did! Seated at a high top - perfect!
Great service & food, relaxing to have a drink, catch up!
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.
A truly wonderful experience. Great drinks and the appetizers were so tasty.
Not the best service, very loud.
It was fine - pre show lunch the day after Christmas.
Never fails, always amazing food and great atmosphere
Great overall experience for a group of 7. Very attentive staff and the food was great.
Our server was very attentive and friendly. We shared fried mozzarella balls, I had the burger and fries which were delicious. My daughter had chicken tacos. We would definitely go again.
Had a business meeting- great venue, very accommodating
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.
Good place for a business meal and conversation!
It was good food just very loud and quite crowded
This was at lunch and almost empty in back. We just needed a few hours to connect after several months and this was a perfect location across from the Hilton. Food was very good.
Great atmosphere for quick business lunch!
The food was very good especially the steak sandwiches and all things fried. The service was also very good. They constantly checked on us and served as quickly.
We needed pre-show dining. Wait staff was attentive and efficient. We got salads, which we both enjoyed, and very nice wine. Cost was quite reasonable. We will definitely come back.
We visited early for some light fare before our train back to NJ. Nice casual atmosphere on a sofa near the fireplace in back. Good small plates and dessert. Friendly service.
Perfect place for before theater. Staff was super helpful and efficient.
We didn't get the seating we had hoped/requested for.
As noted in the special requirements section.
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
Food was good, service was a little slow (considering restaurant was fairly empty) but otherwise fine. Convenient for pre-theater dinner.
Good place if you just want something casual with friends or co-workers. Food and service was great.
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.
Pre theater. Quick. No fuss. Good food. Not too expensive. Clean.
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.
Was here recently for Sunday Brunch, and the food was very good. The all inclusive brunch for $12.95 was very reasonable.
Lively atmosphere, service was a bit off. I prefer to go on weekends when it is slower.
Food was OK, restaurant was empty for Sunday brunch at 12:30 PM
Great food and the service is tops. My go to place for a causal business lunch.
Was in NYC for the weekend. Had 8pm reservation. Arrived early and was seated right away. Server was outstanding. Food was very good and prices were very good. We never had to wait for anything. I would definitely go again.
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.
Not quite the dinner menu we were looking for, cocktails, a beer was good enough.
