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.

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.

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.

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

We went to Faces for Fathers Day brunch . The menu was very limited and is probably more suited for an evening pub venture . It is in a great location and the restaurant itself is very nice and ambient. There is great artwork of celebrity faces . The waitress was extremely sweet and attentive. The price was reasonable for brunch with coffee and a breakfast cocktail. The food was ok but not something I would put on my most memorable list of have to have again.
