Friday night dinner. Service was polite and courteous. No West Coast oysters available. Good mixed drink. Salmon a bit fishy but cooked to order. Burger was good but too pricey.
Always a great experience, from the warm welcome, to the excellent and friendly service. Food is consistently good.
The lobster cobb salad is not to be missed. Of course, the service is always spectacular. Lovely room with actual elbow room and the ability to keep your conversation at your table without disturbing others.
Everything was spot on. Food was delicious and the Side Bar is quite an impressive room. Our meal was made particularly delightful by our waiter (mostly Concierge) Sam who took such special care of us. Definitely will return to the Side Bar as I frequent P.J. Clarke's rather regularly and wasn't aware of their upstairs room.
Lovely old red brick building with great charm in the middle of Manhattan. Cozy and warm dining room with lively bar downstairs. Food was wonderful. The seafood in particular was especially good, and value for money. Highly recommend this spot.
Great, as ever. One of my favorite places to go!
Just love this place. The old school vibe, brick walls, wood beamed ceilings, etc. Staff is off the charts nice. Food very good and not too pricey.
This is a great spot. Very “old style” New York, with delicious food and a great ambiance.
Great place, food and staff!
A go-to after work spot. Quality, great service and experience.
Love P.J. Clarke's. Always a positive experience with great food. Service was excellent in a very pleasant atmosphere.
Sidecar is perfect for just about any occasion. When we were there it was not crowded. The wait staff was lovely as was the burger and salad and tequila drink. I would return any time.
Since 1884, coming here since 1969, great food, great atmosphere, a legend.
Food was good, however the food and beer menu was limited for this type of restaurant with bar.
NOT PJ Clarks. Will not offer the menu even though they are required to and is the same kitchen.
After spending the '80s at the bar & downstairs - upstairs at Side Car is the best of both; same food, drink, and ambiance BUT w/out the decibels. We'll definitely be back! The WayGu Bacon Cheddar Burger was simply amazing!
It was way too noisy, but it’s a lovely place for dinner.
Exquisite attentive caring staff who never disappoint! Always a pleasure to be with you! The cuisine is simply superb ... of course, we always pick our favorites to suit our passions and nutritional desires of the evening! Thank you again and again for all of your warm welcomes. Until soon,

Great burger, lobster Cobb, professional service and charming place.
Loved the atmosphere of this restaurant which was once a private club. Food was high quality and delicious. Service excellent. Highly recommended.
SideCar is a hidden gem in midtown Manhattan for either business lunch or diner, or friends’ get-together! The service is impeccable, the food always delivers, and all of this in a historic and iconic New York place. The burger are the best in town! Thank you SideCar!!! @newyorkexposure
I came for the burgers and it was so worth it! Whiskey sours tasted great! Pleasant atmosphere, friendly waitress. A bit pricey but for a special occasion its fine
$27 for a Burger..... come on! onion strings were not as good a down stairs and the fries had to be sent back because they were cold.... fish and chips were good and the tuna tacos we're outstanding.. Service and seating was great but I cant get over the twenty seven bucks for a cheese burger more than minetta taverns top burger in the city...... set a poor tone for the rest of the menu...
We have a St. Patrick's Day tradition of going to the parade for a couple of hours and then going to SideCar for lunch. It's always fun and never disappoints.
WE DROPPED IN FOR AN EARLY DINNER AND HAD A WONDERFUL MEAL...THE SALMON IS WONDERFUL, SHRIMP COCKTAIL AND WEDGE SALAD FLAVORFUL AND SATISFYING. THE SERVICE WAS TERRIFIC.
Food was great and nice atmosphere
Excellent, service was terrific. Heather is the bomb
What a cool space! We enjoyed the arugula salad and clam chowder. The chicken pot pie was very hot in a cold, snowy night. Filet with choice of sauces was solid. Delicious Mile High Chocolate cake was more than two of us could eat. It was very quiet. Excellent service.
A god experience. Sidecar is my “ go to” for business dinners. We work next door, the food, value and convenience cannot be beat.
Food was excellent, as well as, the service. We ordered from the raw bar and then had steak and chicken. Everything was done to perfection. We will be back.
One of the most exclusive experiente in NYC
The experience was ok but i am very disappointed that I did not get my 1000 points which was one of the main reasons i booked this restaurant over others. The restaurant modified my reservation to 8.15 without checking with me. I was there at 8.09 about for an 8p reservation. The place is expensive and the points were the motivation. Not sure why they changed it without informing me. Also i should have been informed prior that the reservation has been modified. I thought they are supposed to hold the table for atleast 15 mins without changing the reservation.
Cozy rustic restaurant in a historic building. Good place for comfort food, steaks and old favorites.
Sidecar is usually a lunch place for me. This was my first dinner. A great evening. We could have a conversation in normal voices. The service was very good. We’ll certainly be back for dinner again.
terrific spot - staff very friendly and professional. great for business lunch! Chilly is kick butt!
Lovely place, food and service!
I have been a fan of PJ Clarke’s for over 40 years! I especially enjoy the intimate venue of Side Car when dining around East Midtown. It’s my Go-To Restaurant for most all occasions. The Maryland Crab Cakes are top notch. Delicious Espresso Bread Pudding with fresh Bailey’s Whipped Cream.
What a great place! We went for a post holiday dinner with colleagues. The food was delicious (we ordered porterhouse for two and skirt steak) and the wine even better! The staff and service were so friendly too.
Nice room, a bit empty as it was on the early side. Service was quite good. Strip steak cooked properly was quite tasty and the sides (onion strings, etc) all well done. The oysters were fine, strangely not as good as downstairs. Perhaps it was that bunch.
Practical issue is that with everything ala carts you at more likely to share sides etc., and the tables are too small to hold all the glassware and other accoutrements along with multiple serving plates so every course is an exercise in rearranging the table and searching for space.
Might order all in entrees next time to avoid this.
Overall very good. Not a bargain but not crazy either.
