Wonderful experience as soon as we walked in the door until the time we left. We were greeted with friendly smiles and shown to our seats at the counter right away. Introductions to the sushi chef and server were made and we were on our way to delicious course after course. The presentation of our 14 course omakase was beautiful. There was unlimited sake, which we asked them to stop refilling after a while 😄. They even gave me a complimentary cheesecake dessert, even though the only special occasion was visiting my daughter. Much appreciated though!

About the restaurant
One of the oldest and most historic bars in the country, Neir’s Tavern is a destination for a casual drink, a hearty meal, and good company. Over 180 years old, Neir’s was home to Mae West’s first performance, scenes from Goodfellas, and countless other remarkable moments in history. Today, it still holds up to the same charming, laid-back, neighborhood bar that holds a special place in New Yorkers’ hearts.
