The Wilson is a neighborhood gem located at the intersection of the Chelsea and NoMad neighborhoods and just South of Madison Square Garden. Chef Jeff Haskell presents a seafood focused menu of New American Classics within a casually upscale setting. Design highlights are an enclosed heated patio and a private dining & events space with a 30ft ceiling and living moss wall. Cocktails are playful and inventive and the service is warm and hospitable. Signature dishes include Blue Crab Carbonara, Grilled Octopus, Falafel Waffle, Brussels Sprout Tacos, and Avocado Fries. The restaurant is suitable for both intimate dinners and for large group dining, & the active bar allows for a vibrant social dining scene. The Wilson is open 7 days a week serving breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and cocktails and is available for corporate and social events. The Wilson is operated by IGC Hospitality, the team behind other notable NYC venues such as Refinery Rooftop, Parker & Quinn, & Park Avenue Tavern.

We went for brunch on a saturday and the service was so slow, it took us 45 minutes to get simple brunch dishes and refills for drinks. It's a super cute space but they really need to figure out the service issues.

The food was great, especially for the price relative to other dining options in the area. What made this experience was the service, which was friendly, quick, and attentive. Ambience was nice; quiet enough to have a conversation, but with enough energy to feel like you’re having a night out.

What a ripoff. It’s a hotel restaurant and if you’re not staying at the hotel it’s a $35 dollar a person for breakfast. We had instead a terrific breakfast at Maison Kayser acre blocks away for $35 for two people. Avoid this place for breakfast.

Three of us met for an after work dinner and gave the Wilson a try. A bit quiet post holiday, but service was attentive and food delicious. Carrot hummus and burgers were noteworthy. We will be back.

The Wilson has a cool modern vibe. The cocktails are creative and the appetizers were delicious. Highly recommend the brussel sprout tacos and the meatballs. Waiter was very nice and accommodating for our large group of 8.

Was excited to be there. It’s a member of the “in good company” group with the refinery, Mondrian etc. it’s nice but doesn’t live up to the same standard as their other hotels

Business lunch- slow service. Restaurant was not busy. I used to be a regular at the other restaurant in the same location. The food was good but the service was lacking. Entree’s came out while we were still eating our appetizers, really embarrassing especially since we were dining with clients. I had to get up 2 or 3x to have someone address our needs, the first time was to place our order, request dessert and the to get the check, really? Never again.

In an area that has little to offer and the way Restaurants it was America to find a Wilsons. Good everything… Food, service, ambiance. Menu had some unusual things on it like brussels sprouts tacos. And the oyster sliders were delicious.

The space is really nice. There's an upstairs and downstairs. The biggest appeal is the cocktail menu - they offer a list of interesting drinks and the bartender/server was really friendly. The food was okay - my Brussels sprouts tacos were too salty and had to be sent back; but the other dishes were good.

Wilson's is very good. It's only been open 6 weeks but it's got a really good, varied menu and the meals are well prepared and taste great. Service is good, and attentive. Great addition to a great hotel.

ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING BREAKFAST FOR $70 FOR 2 PEOPLE!

THIS IS THE WORST breakfast buffet with Holiday Inn style premade cold and dried eggs with everything on a warmer plate. McDonald's is better than this hole. Really!!

A top hotel breakfast with 5 star service is the same money.

Bathrooms were filthy and I was grossed out.

Never again

Love the space, the food and the service! Perfect for feeling like you’re sitting outside in the winter and the food was really creative and tasty (especially the blue crab carbonara).
