Just fantastic! Highly recommend to anyone and everyone. You MUST TRY the grilled cheese bites; I have never tasted anything so amazingly delicious in my life. Staff was extremely attentive and prices perfect!!

The place is really nice. The food was ok not top notch considering is simple dishes for brunch. The mimos were a little bitter do to the fact the mixter glasd not tasting fresh. Im assuming its the OJ bring used. Pricing was good for a brunch. Service was delightful.

I hate to write this review - as the staff was great!

However... both my boyfriend and I got sooo sick after eating here. We both had two different burgers and were so ill from them.

I feel bad - the place was nice - but I can't really recommend a place where the food made us sick after spending $100+ between the two of us.

Food we ordered not as described on menu. Corrected though. nothing special about menu m. Bottomless brunch Bloody Mary had very little alcohol. But still tasty. Good spice and horseradish. Entrees in bottomless brunch were extremely limited. Hostess was amazing! Wait staff accommodating but not too quick to check up on the table.

Food menu looked great, but we came for brunch where there was only five options for food. The service was very slow for brunch (when the food we ordered seemed quite quick and easy - eggs/pancakes). Very beautiful interior however, might return for lunch or dinner.

I really can’t rate this place because after waiting an hour for apps in a half full place I bailed. Food never arrived. Assume it will be shuttered in a few weeks so not much warning is needed. You kind of have to serve food to be considered a restaurant

Service was “fine.” Servers were friendly, but I thought the drink/wine selection was subpar, the food mediocre and the burger was dry and over cooked. Mayonnaise covered it up. And Why do we need a bathroom attendant? So it’s not a bad restaurant, but many other places in New York serve the save food, but better.

We had been to the Bryant Park tree lighting and since there aren't very many options in the immediate neighborhood, I thought I'd give Proper West a try. So glad I made reservations! Though there was a vibrant bar scene, we had no trouble hearing our conversation in our booth for 4. It was very comfortable, the server was terrific........very accommodating, but not hovering over us. All our meals were yum and everyone was able to find something pleasing on the menu. I'd definitely come back. Nice wine/beer selection too.
The only reason that I didn't give it the 5th star was that about 3/4 of the way through our meal the A/C came on.............blasting onto our heads. It's December! It took several requests to different staff to get them to lower it. I understand that the bar area was warm, but the dining area was comfortable.........that is until they shot us up with a blast from the North Pole.

I went here with a friend while I was in town for a sandwich that was all over their social media. When we got there they weren’t seating anyone or taking reservations, so I went online and made a reservation that way. We then got seated only to be surrounded by open tables. Once seated the wait staff was either short staffed or had too many side duties because it took forever to put orders in, get simple drinks, and get food. On top of that they no longer had the sandwich and claimed to have not carried it for a while. It wasn’t a bad restaurant by any means and everyone was friendly. The atmosphere was nicely decorated. The food and drink were just okay. I couldn’t go out of my way to go back.

Really gross food. Eggs that come from a carton, guacamole that comes from one of those squeeze tubes, flavorless food, watered down mimosas with sickly sweet OJ. Severely understaffed too. One waitress was covering practically all the tables! Definitely wouldn’t recommend. It’s cheap for a reason!

We showed up to the restaurant for a 6:30pm reservation to be told by the doorman that the entire place was closed for a private event. No one from the restaurant called to tell us that, and it was extremely frustrating that they didn’t disable the ability to make a reservation if they were going to be closed. So, no idea if it is good, because we didn’t get to have dinner there. Very turned off by the lack of customer service, so unsure if we will try to go in the future.

Nice bloody Marys and mimosas as well as good food. If you're there for brunch, they'll stop serving you a while after you had your food but still a very enjoyable experience, and I'd go again.

Proper West was featured in an article on great brunches in the city, which is the whole reason we went there. Because there was a college football game that day, they didn't have their brunch menu, which was disappointing since that was our reason for going, but we had to order off the regular menu instead. We ordered sliders, wings, and the truffle mac & cheese, as well as one beer each. The slider buns were dry and the sliders themselves lacking in flavor, the wings were dry and not great. The mac & cheese was decent, and the beers weren't very cold. When our bill came, for only those three items and two beers, our total was $72. Definitely not worth it! We will never return, even for their brunch.

The noise level was not what I expected. It was extremely loud in the bar and restaurant. I was happy to have vegetarian options but a bit surprised that the Buddha Bowl was served cold - maybe I shouldn't have been since it was listed under salads. I would return if I were looking for a place to watch a football game and enjoy a beer. Conversation will suffer here unless you like to scream to be heard.

Went here on a brunch deal. It was quiet for one in the afternoon on a Sunday.. But I think this place is better suited for sports with all the great TVs. The brunch menu was limited but they were super flexible with it. We brought our young daughter and they were more than willing to fulfill requests for off menu chocolate milk and egg "sandwich". Definitely get the bacon!! And the Bloody Mary was excellent. Would go back for sure.

I like this place because even though it's more of a sports bar, they do have tables and you can make a reservation. I came with one of my girlfriends so we could get a bite and catch up. I very much enjoyed my short rib grilled cheese and highly recommend it. It was definitely loud in there, but not so loud that we couldn't hear each other. Plus they had some games on so that was great too. It's a good midtown spot that isn't too crazy.

Went to the restaurant to order one specific entree. 15 minutes after ordering, I was informed it was not available. Substitute entree was overdone and dry. Nobody refilled my water glass until it was time to pay the bill. Cocktails were not good either.
