Great stand up comedy entertainment. We laughed a lot! Don’t go there if you get offended easily. Need to be ready for any topics from the comedians. Food was very good and service was great. Unique menu items. Overall it was a highlight of our weekend trip to NYC!

My son & I have been here for dinner often in the past. We always sit in the ground floor dining area (versus the comedy club / bar downstairs). We returned here for lunch when he was home from college. The lunch menu is very limited compared to the full dinner menu. We give high marks to the steak sandwich & The Stand burger. We also loved the well-flavored handcut chips. However, the "tasty-looking" fish tacos were disappointing due to the fact that the chef failed to season the tilapia fish. It was very bland. Some simple salt before breading & frying them would've been good enough. The waitress was attentive among the 4 groups of lunchtime patrons. The food is consistently unique & very good overall. Highly recommend for dinner versus lunch.

The Alex team on our brunch Pulsd voucher was superb. They delivered great service, was attentive and our mimosa glasses were never empty. The food was delicious ie: the burger and the chicken and waffles. Ambiance is dingy and not the best, needs some work. Also some tables are too small. For brunch it's a great bottomless spot.

Good place for brunch, but they only serve espresso. No regular coffee - so plan accordingly!

Unfortunately the service ruined our experience. We were not given silverware, she was faced with her back to us on her phone for the majority of the time. We asked for the wine list and she never came back. Delivered desert with no silverware for that either so ice cream melted. Had to chase her for the check. Horrible experience for the price. Will not go back.

If you are planning to attend a comedy show, the food is good enough and the convenience is worth it. Some items are very good. Great Mac/cheese. But better options nearby if you are not going to a show.
