This rustic New York City tavern conjures images of days of old, of Hamilton and Washington sitting around the fire, while Lafayette picks up the tab at the bar. The Brazen Tavern's unique location between Times Square and Hell's Kitchen means easy access and appeal for theatergoers, neighborhood residents, and international visitors alike. Everyone feels at home and alive at the Brazen, where Irish-inspired food, mouth watering whiskeys, and great craic await.

    As far as we could tell, The Brazen Tavern has not been open long. (I say that because there was not a lot of information on the Open Table site when I was looking for a restaurant.) We had an early reservation (4:15ish), and for a half hour or so, we were the only people there, but more patrons arrived as it grew later. The menu is small, but once we started to examine it carefully, we had a hard time choosing from several enticing options. Among the three of us, we had pretzels (very good), nachos with grilled chicken (very good), a burger and fries (very good), and both Irish and Shepherd's Pie meatballs (really good). Give it a try!

    First time here, dinner before a show. Service was very good, short rib flatbread was fantastic as was my smoked old fashioned. Would definitely return.

    Very nice casual restaurant in the theater district. A friendly staff who was constantly checking on us. We shared a nice watermelon salad to start. We both had burgers. They were made the way that we ordered them. Good place to remember when we are in that part of Manhattan

    Drinks were good and so were the burgers. Better suite for a hang out and drinks rather than dinner. But we did enjoy it and our server was AWESOME!

    Súper ruidoso, al nivel de que no puedes hablar tranquilamente con la gente de tu Mesa sin gritar. La comida buena, pero nada else especial. El servicio maravilloso, un aplauso a todas las camareras súper amables y atentas. Pero demasiado ruidoso, la comida demasiado normal.

    Pros: Food was delicious. Salmon, shepherd’s pie and burgers. Excellent value for the money. Table was clean. Cons: Web site didn’t note that upstairs, where we wanted to eat, was closed. Waiter didn’t wear a mask during peak Omicron. Waiter forgot a side salad and when reminded brought it much later near the end of the meal. When weighing the food quality and value (positive) against the service and Covid concern, I think an average weighting overall is deserved.

    First of all, it's very difficult to get a reservation for a large group (we had 8) in the Theatre District at 6 on a Saturday night. "Overbooked and understaffed" was what I heard from some other venues. The Brazen Tavern was one of the few venues to accommodate us on OpenTable. When we got there we found them to be overbooked and understaffed as well. Yet they made room for us on the otherwise empty second floor. The manager himself waited on us and was very friendly and accommodating. Food was good, pub grub for the most part, but reasonably priced for this part of town. Guinness was a good pour. Atmosphere is as advertised, more of an American tavern with a hint of Irish pub, lots of reclaimed wood and vintage light fixtures. My group enjoyed the experience and several mentioned wanting to return again. Highly recommended for groups and pre-show.
