One of my favorite spots! Drinks are always on point and the food is fantastic. Excellent service.
Wonderful atmosphere, friendly staff, very accomodating. Delicious food...and great cocktails.
We always enjoy The Rag Trader. Service, ambiance, food and drinks are always very enjoyable and well done.
Dinner was great. Live music added to our enjoyment. Service was friendly and very efficient from Nick, our waiter. Both dinners were delicious. Covid precautions were very well done, with plastic partitions between tables.
Great service, food was very, very good, really enjoyed everything about Rag Trader. Will definitely go back soon.
And they were set up for a very safe dining experience.
It was a perfect place for a date me and my girlfriend had a good time.
Service was great and the food and drinks were amazing. I had the fried chicken sandwich and it was great. Had both tuna tartare and crab cakes for appetizers, both were great. The staff is very welcoming and our server Conner was great and very informed.

Amazing place to have dinner! 10/10. Live music is amazing and the food is superb. Give the fried chicken sliders a try! Definitely won’t be disappointed
Food and drinks were great, staff were helpful and friendly!
I have been here several times so I suggested this for our dinner, Cindy was the best server ever and we had a fabulous time. Food was amazing as usual.
Food was delicious, ambiance and service were on point. A little disappointed in the servings being so small and priced very high.
Meal & service was excellent! Sat outside and had a blast. The host and server were very attentive throughout our meal. Cant wait to go back. They were on top of all the covid protocols as well.
Very accommodating amid the restrictions. Drinks and food were wonderful and service was top notch. Thank you so much!
The ambiance is awesome, service is just okay (everyone was really nice, but could step up their quality of service) and the food is hit or miss.
Loved it and am going again next week. Took all the right precautions for safe dining.
Good Midtown location and the interior is very nice. The food is reliably good and the staff is attentive and pleasant.
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.
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
Exelent food, ambience, service and live music!
Can’t wait to go back!
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
