Great Brunch and great decor!

We were recommended the Breslin by some friends, it did not disappoint! The interior could be too dark for some but it adds to the attraction, especially in the winter months! The brunch menu was good and the Lamb burger I was told was amazing, well naturally I ordered that! The dish was brought... read more

Requested that a portion of meal be omitted because of food allergy and the chef went ballistic. Refused to omit the portion of the meal I cannot eat. Dining room manager extremely rude in her explanation. Waiter's service slow, that is if he took the time to look over toward the table. Each time he approached he would whisper his... More

Visited with local friends from NYC and had a brilliant night. Although we hadn't made a reservation, they accommodated us with a smile and great service. We ordered every appetiser to share and each dish was delicious. A bit of a treat to see the table next to us order a whole pig too! Great atmosphere, and a real fun... More

This Restaurant is cool, great dinning room, a little noisy during lunch, but its open from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. The food choice is limited to a few items that are creative and flavorful. The Lamb burger with Feta and grilled onions, which is serves with "Thrice fried potatoes", is well worth the visit. The daily home made ice... More

So many details to look at, so much atmosphere to soak up and possible the best lamb burger (with triple fried chips) one could ever imagine. Will definitely go back to try rest of menu.

Ate here as part of our NYC Christmas trip for lunch. Fantastic food. Had the lamb burger, loved it. Lively spot attached to the ACE hotel. Recommend as a must eat in mid-town.

I've been here several times with friends & coworkers but never had a particularly positive experience. It's a trendy scene, the bar is always super packed and bartenders act like gods for who knows what reason. They're dismissive, barely speak and straight up tools. I will say the food at the Breslin is good but the service/kitchen is super slow.

If you like different kinds of food, you will love it here. We had Sunday brunch here and were glad we'd made a reservation as it got quite busy by the time we left. A good time to arrive for brunch is 9:30 when they are not very crowded. The Breslin's decor is that of a British pub with dark... More

The Breslin is an atmospheric place to eat. We were appropriately seated on a corner table and reservations/tables were spaced so we were not encroached on. The waitress was extremely helpful, knowledgable and as we had limited time, discussed that with the kitchen with regard to the several courses we had ordered. The timing went perfectly. We shared all the... More
