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.

    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.

    The atmosphere is very welcoming, and it feels as if you have stepped back into another era in NYC. The service.was excellent and the food was delicious. I highly recommend the “Waverley Lemonade” which is perfect on a hot summer evening.

    Overpriced for portions, even for Manhattan. Service okay, but staff in rush to clear our plates before even done despite empty dining room. Asked if had tofu. Said could give it to us only if we ordered $96 mac n cheese dish! Will only go for drinks in winter now and only because of fireplaces. Could of had 3 dinners for our two glasses of wine, soup and main dish.

    Rude host, didn’t acknowledge our request for seating and wasn’t friendly or welcoming. Food was horrid: Slimy and tasteless pasta, rock shrimp seemed frozen. Pot pie was tiny and also flavorless. So disappointing for a special occasion especially. This was always my go-to but has fallen apart. Maybe it was a one-off but I won’t be going back. Owner Graydon was holding court which was cool, but also should have meant service and food would be at its best.

    Absolutely wonderful - one of the most special restaurants in the city. Amazing food, magical atmosphere, great service. The hostess on the way in was the only downer - rude and brusk and not ‘Waverley Inn’ brand! Otherwise best evening of 2021 so far :)

    Food was delicious the best amish chicken a couple of our guests had ever enjoyed My salman was cooked perfectly and fabulous. They must a have new chef as I have been going to The Waverly for years and this is the best food yet. Ambience is cosy and lovely and chic. Service was perfect our sever was never around too much but there when we needed him. I would definitely recommend to friends and look forward to returning soon
