The Waverly Inn is reopening for outdoor dining on Thursday, August 13th, 2020 for dinner service.

Established in 1920, The Waverly Inn was reopened in 2006 by Vanity Fair Editor-in-Chief Graydon Carter along with Sean MacPherson and Eric Goode (of the Maritime and Bowery Hotels) and Emil Varda. Tucked into the ground floors of two adjoining townhouses, the dining room's red booths, fireplaces and low amber lighting provide an attractive and cozy hangout for the city’s best and brightest. The menu features American classics alongside contemporary seasonal dishes using organic, local ingredients.

    For the amount of money we spent, this was a very subpar experience. First, we were charged $8 for water which was basically tap. Then my mother’s burger was raw when she requested it medium and the fries were overcooked. The only thing that saved the experience was the ambiance.

    Overall the Inn is great to look at but the food is overpriced for the quality. The room was far too crowded even with everyone being vaccinated and the garden is not really outside.

    I have been coming to Waverly Inn for many many years. The food was horrible tonight. The crab cakes were slightly warm. The French Fries were soggy. The service was horrible. You have people coming over constantly asking to take plates that were not at all empty. Then at the end of the meal , everyone disappeared! It then took 15 minutes to get a check. It was a horrible night. I was with a prominent business man It was embarrassing. I have been hearing this from several people in the neighborhood!! Not a happy customer.

    The food was very good…but the real reason you come here is for the people watching and it never disappoints. Also, the staff is delightfully queer and I’m here for it. I saw reviews about the staff being rude and I just think that’s homophobic. Bring a date, bring your friends, wear your best lewwwk, eat some good food and finish your meal with an espresso martini. I highly recommend.

    Normally, I give 5 star reviews when dining at Waverly Inn. Service was not even close to good. Maybe the server was new? No idea. We dine there more often ….so this was a surprising visit to the previous ones. We had dinner there earlier that week and it was perfect. Food is always great!

    The service was terrible! They forgot to bring our small plates, did not serve us our wine and then never circled back when we told to give us a few minutes to think about what dessert we want. The food was exquisite but the service was god awful

    It started raining on us so the waiter immediately asked if we wanted to move inside or to the covered patio which was so thoughtful. We moved inside and the restaurant is so cute! Food was delicious and I regret not splitting more appetizers.

    The waiter we had was extremely rude. Threw a napkin at our table. Was very sassy when taking our order. My friend also asked if he could charge her phone inside. He said he would check, took her phone, never came back with it. Since he didn’t return, we assumed it was charging but when my friend went to the bathroom as we were leaving, the phone was just sitting on the counter. The waiter could have at least brought the phone back to tell us it could not be changed. Amazing food! Horrible service by our designated waiter (the other waiters who assisted us were very kind and attentive).

    Sitting outside on a perfect evening in NYC is tough to beat, and Waverly Inn is a great place to enjoy the summer evenings. Last evening my main course was disappointing. The crabcakes were not great. They were attractively served in a delicious spicy sauce, but the crabmeat in the crabcakes was not lump; rather it had the consistency that suggested that it was made from frozen crabmeat. I expected better from this fine restaurant.

    I really like The Waverly Inn and so I was disappointed to receive less than acceptable service. We felt that we are an afterthought for the waiter. We were not offered before dinner drinks--the waiter wanted us to order dinner when he did make his way to our table. He seemed to be bothered by us during the dining experience. And the he did not ask if we wanted anything else during or after dinner--which we did. We had to flag down others to help us. He just brought the check. I am hoping our next visit will be better.
