Food excellent. Service exceptional. Thank you Carlos!
Food was tiny, overpriced, and not particularly good with the notable exception of the kale caesar salad, which was a nice portion size and enjoyable. Service was friendly, but slow and somewhat disjointed. Would not recommend.
We had a birthday bottomless mimosas brunch. We were running late and they held our reservation. The staff was very helpful and they were quick to refill our drinks. The food was yummy. We had stake and eggs and the frittata. They both came with potatoes and a salad. Potatoes were soft in the middle and crisp on the outside. Salad was fresh and not over dressed. The meal and service made for a special day.
Quite simply the best collection of tacos I've had in years, quite possibly ever. Just very, very good ingredients and flavors.
Been here many many times, i always get a table and the service is grrat! Not even going to start how amazing the food is! I wish there was more vegetarian but they always help and try to adjust everything. Love it here! Feels like a second home!
Great spot for a quick lunch!
Everything was just okay—nothing remarkable or memorable. Service wasn’t great. I ended up grabbing a carafe of water from a nearby station because we sat for a while without anyone coming by to check on refills.
Solid food, good ambiance but not enough wait staff during brunch of the weekends. Almost impossible to get a waiter to take the check
Food was good. We both had steaks. Both cooked very well and seasoned nicely.
The night we went it was incredibly quiet and so the restaurant lacked a lively atmosphere and just seemed stale.
Finally, our waiter wasnt very pleasant. Just seemed a bit cranky.
Service was terrible. We sat at the table for 10 minutes without any service before we called the maitre'd over. He took our order, food came rather quickly after but that was the end of any service at all. Had to call the maitre'd over again to get the check.
I had a business lunch here with clients and we had such a great and easy experience. Food was delicious, highly recommend the chicken paillard! Service was on point and the ambience was just right. Not too crowded but not empty either. Great lunch vibes, will definitely go back!
We got caught in snow storm on our visit to New York. This restaurant was directly across the street from our hotel. We were pleasantly surprised with the ambience, service and excellent food. Sushi and Ahi was to die for!!
It's a "go-to" for me for business meals. In this case, a prospective client was in from Vancouver, and Wayfarer is the place I chose for lunch. I come to Wayfarer now and then, and Ashley - who's at the front - is always terrific and makes a very positive impression, both on returning diners and their guests. Look forward to coming back soon.
Great food exceptional service
Burger was great!
It was enjoyable.
The restaurant has a strange service system. Someone comes by to take your order and you doesn’t introduce himself. Someone comes by to pour water, someone else delivers beverages. Someone else delivers food. Nobody ever came back to ask if we needed anything or whether everything was alright. I had to flag someone passing by to get some salt. Finally, since we had no idea whether we had an assigned server, after finishing and waiting some time, we finally had to ask the hostess, who was the only employee who was pleasant and had a personality, to have someone bring our check. The same person who took our order delivered our check without apology. Strange. We won’t be returning.
Bad experience wit
The Wayfarer was amazing. The flavors were truly unique. The portions were adequately sized. Great ambience. The Wayfarer is a bit pricey so I would recommend for special occasions.
Attentive and friendly service made our dinner here a good evening! The menu is diverse with my boyfriend enjoyed the Rainbow roll and a salmon and quinoa entree he loved while I had a terrific burger.
Horrible service and mediocre food. All in all, disappointment. Would never recommend and will never be back. I already forgot about this restaurant until they asked me to leave a review.
I've been wanting to try this restaurant for awhile and it did not disappoint for lunch the other day. We had the burrata with butternut squash and brocvocado jar (a chunky guacamole with some pieces of broccoli florets) and both were delicious. I had the kale and quinoa grilled chicken salad - the kale was very tender (someone definitely massaged it), the chicken paillard delicious, and the touches of citrus and jalapeno perfectly balanced. My friend had the salmon which I don't eat but she said it was delicious. I had to ask for the Laurent Tourendel signature popovers (mini size here) but when they came they were warm, eggy, and crisp. I'll definitely be back. This is like a younger more fun less expensive cousin in the BLT family of restaurants.
Great choice for restaurant week!
Lobster sandwich had barely any lobster for $29. Meal felt rushed.
My friend and I visited The Wayfarer for Sunday Brunch last weekend. We both had the egg white frittata dish and it was delicious. Our server was fairly new and did not have any concept of good service and everything was overpriced, even for NYC standards. The Wayfarer is a great location to take your parents, but if you’re looking for a lovely brunch place where you get your bang for your buck...this place is not it.
Wonderful food, great service and cozy atmosphere. I would definitely go back.
The food was amazing (both had filets and cooked to perfection exactly as we asked)! Bartender was friendly and accommodating. Looking forward to returning.
This was my second time at Wayfarer and I was disappointed by the service and the noise level. The food was just adequate.
The Wayfarer serves just ok food in a handsome setting in a terrific location near Central Park. The menu was varied enough for lunch but the service was lacking. We had to summon a waitress to refill our coffee cups and our water. I think she was overwhelmed by serving too many tables. The Kale salad was bitter and not chopped enough and it lacked enough dressing to make it tasty. The frittata was tiny and not spiced well. However, the profiterole dessert was excellent and big enough for three to share. A yummy finale to a mediocre meal.
Great food, great atmosphere, perfect for client dinner, group outing or date.
great midtown location. reliable food and efficient service. everything was good and priced reasonably for what you got.
We waited for quite a while for the staff to take our order, but it was early and I think they staff was just getting settled. I chose the restaurant week menu and had an arugula salad, risotto and cookies. The salad was pretty good, but salty. I had about 5 bites of risotto because I hadnt anticipated huge chunks of squash and brussel sprouts, neither of which I like. My fault, not the restaurant's. My husband got scallops with ravioli, which was about 4 scallops and 3 ravioli. The warm chocolate chip cookies for desert were amazing, but the coffee milk was overwhelmingly sweet. My husband got the dessert menu serving of cookies, which was six!! Cookies, which he could not finish.
Good food, good price!
Restaurante was a great option for a business lunch. Very quiet and great food and service
Went for restaurant week. First let me say while our waiter was very professional, I found his attitude to be cold and uncaring. I have alot of food allergies and warned him about one in particular. Started with a wonderful tasty warm salad with mushrooms and chorizo. Then I had the vegetable risotto. I am highly allergic to carrots that are raw or not cooked enough.
I asked if they soft - he assured they were. What he did not say is that most of the vegetables were CARROTS. I mean loads of them. Thankfully the cook was enough to make it safe for me to eat. But I had to eat everything around them.
AND they were many large chunks of carrots.
It was delicious but a waste of my time. Thankfully the salad and their popovers filled me up.
Dessert - which I didn't eat but did take home - were choc chip cookies.Came with a small glass with some type of milk with coffee and some choc. Unsure but didn't matter - IT WAS AMAZING.
Definitely would go back
The food choices were varied enough to cover everyone’s allergies as well as people’s favorite foods for brunch. Coffee was great, hot and plentiful. Service was spot-on but not hovering. This was a small family reunion and we were given plenty of time to chat, eat and linger afterwards without being crowded out. Hope to return next visit.
Very good experience!
I ordered a filet mignon med rare and it was charred to a crisp on the outside and rare in the middle. Looked totally unpresentable and should not have been served. Our waiter was absolutely clueless beyond anything I've ever seen. It was like he was taken off the street and assigned to wait tables for the night. He had no understanding of common server duties such as taking our order, (another waiter had to do it for him) checking on us during our dinner, or taking a drink order (he brought my wife a hot tea when she had ordered a cider). After ordering coffee and desert he asked me if I wanted another cocktail! The place was dead on a Friday night and they sat us right next to a loud table with 4 kids. The prices are way too high for this type of food and service.
