Great service! Nick was very attentive and funny. Food was amazing! Strongly recommend the calling fritters.
The interior of the restaurant is really amazing and highly recommend it for anyone looking for a good place to enjoy a good night with friends. The dishes are great and come in large portion. The waiter was patient in explaining the menu and I love the vibe of the restaurant. Will come back again.
Exelent food, ambience, service and live music!
Can’t wait to go back!
we recently found this spot and we love it! it feels like NYC pre-covid (minus temp checks, plexiglass, empty bar seats and servers in masks). The live music is awesome! the food and cocktails are just as good. highly recommend for a fun night out
Amazing live music outside!
Great outdoor dining experience with Skip playing live music on the sidewalk.
Absolutely loved our experience at the Ragtrader. We initially came for the live music, but also truly loved the food and the craft cocktails. Highly recommend every single one - and you definitely want to get the drunkin' donuts!! Everything was so delicious and the ambience was wonderful. They do a great job about making you feel like you're in a restaurant, even though you're eating outside. Very friendly service as well. Highly highly recommend! We will be back - probably even next weekend :)
Staff was so great. A bit loud with the live music, but we had an amazing time.
Great friendly service with good imaginative menu.
Great pizzas, especially good with drinks or as an appetizer.
Nick, the outside waiter is excellent, and there is good live music most nights. Food is good and interesting drinks menu too.
It was a very cute place, with amazing customer services. I will try this place again and will recommend the place to my friends.
Great outdoor dining! Delicious food!
Music was awesome
Thanks for making my wife's birthday a memorable one.
Outside dining was great. The team went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable.
Food and service was fantastic! They're clearly going out of their way to make sure everything is sanitized and safe and I will definitely return.
Great place great food !
Muy buen ambiente, la comida no sobresale pero está bien, para mi gusto en Estados Unidos los mozos no saben, no están capacitados o es por un tema de idioma que no saben explicar cómo es el plato.
El lugar lo recomiendo
Great spot for all types of occasions. Very unique for nyc. Def will be back
Nico is amazing!!! He was so great to us and let us eat in the van
Went to a show, and had dinner. Fantastic!!
Burgers came back raw and the Benedict was very misleading and disappointing. For the price it wasn’t worth it. Bottomless was nice.
Quiet and great for lunch. Good food. Tried it once for dinner and it was too loud for anyone in our large group to hear each other — might work for a date where you can sit close to the other person.
Great bar and atmosphere nice place to meet friends and colleagues delicious food and strong drinks
Such good food, I tried the Vegan Burger, Very good for it not being beef. Definitely would come back and my guests agreed.
Intimate atmosphere with comfortable lounge seating, excellent service, and delicious drinks. Food is good, but nothing to write home about.
Excellent service and great show! Kate, our waitress, was friendly and provided exceptional service!
Fun place, foods good at a good price point. Did not realize that if you want to go downstairs after dinner youll need another reservation
The waiter, Ryan, went above and beyond. Best restaurant experience I’ve had in a long time. Great food, service and atmosphere.
Such wonderful staff. They care about your experience. The food and drinks were extremely satisfying.
Great decor and ambience. Food and drinks very good. Service was perfect. Our waiter Lou was super nice and helpful with the menu recommendation.
I would definitely recommend it for freinds’ gatherings or date.
Went on a Monday night, the atmosphere was dark and romantic. Great service and great selection of menu items.
Nice food, nice service, great value. Solid casual option in Midtown Manhattan.
Everything was great, the whole “bottomless brunch” ending at 1:30 though is probably why it was easy to get a reservation. Food took a while to come out
Luis was great as our server. The food was good. Drinks were also good. Seated us about 20 minutes after the reservation. Overall good time.
Everything was great except the noise level. Between the talking/shouting and music... not sure I will be going back there.
We went on a busy weeknight and sat upstairs in a van with a table for 4 inside. It was funny and unique. We ordered the attium pizza, cauliflower fritters, Brussels sprouts, and a few other apps plus dessert, and We liked everything. Service was good too.
Great place. Great space. Great service. Will recommend and return.
A quiet hidden gem near Herald Square. Well curated menu, whiskey list, and decor.
Thanks Rag Trader for making my dinner night out special. I was given a great table through my OpenTable reservation. The service was friendly and paced out nicely. My new neighborhood favorite restaurant.
