Great ambience for a business or casual get together. Food and drinks menu is good with lots of options for everyone. Service is good too. I have been there on several occasions and they are consistent with their food and service.

The Trading Post is a unique restaurant.
It is a lovely historical landmark, with very cosy, private spaces and nooks, for dining, that afford the customers total privacy to interact.
The service is impeccable.
I have eaten here several times, and can only compliment the servers.
The food is exquisite.
I had the Scottish salmon, and the and my husband and I shared the barley and mushroom risotto.
Both were delicious.
My husband also enjoyed his Caesar’s salad.
Our friends had the traditional pizzeta and the half chicken.
They raved about their dishes, as well.
We finished off our meal with the wonderfully autumnal pumpkin brûlée.
The Trading Post is special, and a delightful place to sit back, relax, in a warm, comfortable, old- fashioned way.

My husband and I just moved into the neighborhood so we are looking for local restaurants that we can count on. This one will be added to that list. The food was really good. Although the noise level was very high the host made every effort to find a table for use where we could hear each other talk. The host checked in us several times to make sure everything met our expectations. For those reasons I would rate the service as excellent and we will return

We were visiting NYC for the weekend and went down to South Shore, decided to cancel our reservation with original restaurant when we found this closer location. What a great find!
The food was amazing - i had the Shrimp Scampi - amazing!
Isabelle was our server, she was fantastic! Let us try a beer to ensure we would like it and recommended some great dishes.
We will be returning to NYC and will make a return visit.

Excellent salmon/kale/quinoa salad. All the other guests seem to have enjoyed their meal as well. Classic and traditional all American pub with historic vibe. (Freezing cold AC for those who like it)

Just ok. I booked this for a client lunch and we ended up sitting outside. The table was dirty, trash outside next to table, service was sloooow and my salad was not fresh. The burger looked better! It's ok go for casual or a drink. Don't expect much from the food.

I took my wife here for her birthday and it was a really a pleasant surprise the food was amazing the service is great and on point. The ambiance is very mellow and romantic the only thing I would complain about and this is subjective , when we were being seated I whispered to the guy that it was her birthday and he told me "I got you covered" I expected for him to at least prepare like a small cake with candles I wasn't expecting a free cake I clearly was reday to pay but nothing.... it's OK because the food and service to me was flawless and I am definitely going again but they should make an option for occasions as above mentioned. Otherwise I still give the place a 5 stars but I will say if you want to have a nice quiet time do not go during happy hour the bar is just a slight bit noisey but who cares?....still five stars for me....

Took a business client and co-workers here and everyone had a great meal. The only downside of the place was the pounding music, which made it super noisy. My salmon was the best I've had in months - asked for it on the rare side and actually got it. Grilled asparagus on the side was superb. Dessert (key lime pie) wasn't fantastic, just ok. Some reasonable wine list choices, which is always a nice surprise in NYC. Had the 1000 Stories bourbon-barrell aged Zin and it was very good.

The place is huge. It is packed with a preponderance of millennials though all seem welcome and comfortable. It is raucous though there are quiet spots here and there. We were in one such little room ourselves. I found the 18 dollar cheese plate purchased to accompany my Guinness to be unbalanced with only three smallish pieces of toast. I asked the barman for more bread to go with it and he said that I would ruin my appetite for dinner. That was true and I abided by it, though it wasn't very customer driven. I notice Open Table gives the place 3 dollar signs. It is pricey but not THAT pricey.

The food was good, but not to due for. We had the burger and crab cake sandwich. The restaurant menu is not the same as the menu online, but we were told that they recently changed their menu. The new menu is pretty limiting.

The staff was friendly.

Always good but eating upstairs was a new treat. The walk up the flight of stairs opened to a room that I had not been in. It was very comfortable and easy to have a conversation. The food is always top notch and the services is great
