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.
My group of six loved our experience at the restaurant. It's such a nice clean restaurant with a great value. Our waiter Michael made our visit even more enjoyable. So friendly and professional. Within walking distance of Studio 54.
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.
Dark. Food menu is very limited. Seating (chairs) is terrible
This venue EXCELLS
One is welcomed, seated,served with a welcoming smile.
One is wined and dined with great efficiency
This is the finest restaurant where I have dined in the past three years. The host/waiter was exceptional. The food was delicious. The servings were generous. There are no complaints. It's absolutely the BEST!
Went here for a Pre theater lunch. Everything was fine, but completely ordinary and forgettable. The server was nice and we finished on time. Those were the highlights.
They would not seat us or honor our reservation. Will never go back.
Faces & Names is my go-to for quick lunches away from the office to happy hour. As far as NYC prices go, F&N is relatively inexpensive, and the food is great!
Convenient to City Center! Good food, made to order with friendly, accommodating service.
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.
This was a fair place to get some and a drink a performance and priced but more...would not have dinner here as thr menu was limited. This place needs more servers....and a more menu....it was Saturday night and the poor hostess had to seat people....serve food AND drinks!
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.
Place is really a bar with bar food. Food was okay but nothing special. Fries a bit dry.
I had a reservation but was seated at a raised table. Hard for me because of a bad knee. Would have expected a real table given that i had a reservation. But none were available. Only alternative was a low sofa with a "coffee" table.
Waitress was friendly but not overly attentive.
VERY noisy. We were seated in the bar area and we couldn't speak without shouting. Maybe the back area is quieter. We went at 7:30 pm, maybe should have gone earlier.
We all had a nice time, our server was great. The little chairs were funny but not uncomfortable. The calamari and sauce was really good. Worth checking out.
amazing food, try all appetizers!
The place is nice, but noise level was TOO LOUD for a normal conversation. Food was great, service was good. Local after work spot, later was better.
Stopped in on the way back to our hotel after a show. Excellent food and service.
I lunch at Faces with my co workers a couple of times a month. The menu is consistently solid with typical bar food, burgers, sandwiches etc, as well as specials which are tasty and reasonably priced. I had the chicken sandwich with curly fries off the regular menu. Foccacia bread, avocado, cheese and grilled chicken, really tasty. My co workers had the bacon burgers, black bean burger and the portabella mushroom sandwich which they enjoyed. The curly fries and onion rings are really great. The staff is friendly and attentive. Great lunch option
Fun overall experience
A great lounge to enjoy your special occassion with a group or couple. Loved the portraits on the walls & was able to watch some sports on the big screen TV . Appetizers, dinner, & specialty drinks were just right!
Nous avons très bien mangé, typiquement américain avec mini hot dogs, mini burgers, frites, petite salade. Les fenêtres qui donnent sur la rue étaient grande ouvertes permettant une bonne aération de la pièce, c'est très appréciable quand on mange. Nous recommendons vivement cette adresse à tous les touristes de passage.
