Family get together for us. Both the service level and the food quality was outstanding. We had a party of six and we were very comfortable and the ambiance was perfect.

Service was unimpressive (it was actually genuinely bad). Waitress wasn't attentive, when she did attend to my table (which was not often at all-- we had to get the attention of a different waitress at one point), she made my party feel rushed.

The day after I went, I received an email from OpenTable asking me to explain why I missed my reservation at Trading Post-- which did not make any sense, because not only was I there on time, but I stayed for 2 hours to finish out my meal. Not sure if the confusion was because of her. (I wouldn't be surprised.)

I did, however, have a great time while I was there for brunch. It was a wonderful time with my two friends. The food was great and I enjoyed the company.

The kale salad was fine. The chicken they put on top was literally rubber. What a turn off to think I was eating a chicken that was so abused.

Everything was perfect. We sat in the upstairs dining room on Friday night, it was not loud and the service was brilliant. I think Jesse was our server, he was great. We will definitely be returning.

Such great hospitality. Food was amazing and best value I've seen in lower Manhattan since I moved here a few months ago. The waitress was so nice and gave us free desert for the extra wait when we didn't even feel it at all. We will be back again!

Nice dark, rich decor. It can be a quiet place or noisy depending on the night and where you are seated. But good for a date and groups. They also have downstairs lounge.

Great find in the FiDi area of NYC! My husband and I were in town for a business trip and wanted to take our 30 year old nephew out to dinner for his birthday in a location near his office in a place that he would enjoy. We booked restaurant seating which was crowded at 7:30pm but the upper and lower bar areas seemed to be crowded as well. The service was great. The menu has something for everyone and every dish we tried was a great value for the price. The entire establishment was vibrant on a Tuesday evening. It seemed to have a good bar crowd but also a good dining crowd. I think the vibe fit the 30 year old as well as the 50 something year olds. Try it if you are in FiDi!

This experience was frustrating. When I arrived at the restaurant (as a single party) with an Open Table reservation the manager (self-identified) noted the reservation and had me seated at the table. Later during the meal I received a notification from Open Table that the restaurant reported that I didn't show for the reservation. Food was average and service varied - one great waiter and several not-so-good waitresses (they must use a team approach). Also very pricey. When I left I confronted the manager about the reservation not being acknowledged. He stammered a bit and stated that "oh yeah, that happened. I don't know how to fix that. Do you know how?" I left with the impression that the oversight was purposeful/dishonest. I assume restaurants must provide some fee to Open Table when a reservation is booked and completed. There are a lot of places to eat in NYC. Be wary and choose carefully.

“ The Trading Post” is a unique dining experience.
It is housed in a chandlery, a warehouse that provided goods for sailors, of the 1800’s.
The original walls still stand.
The place is cosy, and magnificent
The four of us, from Long Island, and Staten Island, always choose this restaurant to celebrate important milestones, such as our anniversaries, and birthdays.
It is worth the trip.
We were seated in a very comfortable, quiet nook, that provided us much privacy.
The conversations around us were at a comfortable noise level.
The food was spectacular.
I had the mouth - watering barley and mushroom risotto, and my husband enjoyed his Scottish salmon dish.
We had scrumptious pumpkin fritters, as the appetizer, for the table.
All restaurants should have such an attentive waiting staff, as served us.
The servers continually questioned us about our contentment with the dishes.
Our dessert was the incomparable apple crumble, with ice cream.
Our friends had the pumpkin brûlée. They said that it was sublime.
We chatted, leisurely, unrushed, feeling that we were in another world, a beautiful home away from home.
We shall be back!
Thank you, “The Trading Post” staff, for once again making it “ a lovely place to spend the evening”.

Had looked at menus and reviews,and thought it would be good for brunch. Menus on line alot more extensive than the brunch menu we were offered. While the food was okay, there was no wow factor in any of the 6 menu items our table ordered. I would not return.

Nice vibe maybe but food is WAY overpriced for what it is- high end bar food. The salmon poke was sweet - I prefer a more vinegar based poke and the chop chop salad was also sweet (pineapples abound)- just not my thing. If your looking for Asian accented food that has sugar and is sweet- the food is up your alley. Plus my cocktail - an old fashion was $17- that’s ridiculous. The whole place is WAY overpriced.

The Trading Post offers a multi level dining experience. First level is vibrant with a bar scene. Second level is quiet, quaint and comfy. Perfect for a multi generational family gathering with older people who cannot hear well. This type of environment is extremely difficult to find in the city. We had a fabulous dining experience with one of the best servers we have had in the city. Siobhan was very friendly, attentive, witty and provided fabulous service. I highly recommend TP!!
