I was in New York for two weeks and this was the best brunch I found, and one of the best restaurants in general. The food was absolutely delicious and was a great deal too - cocktails just $5 with any brunch order! Aside from the food, the service was also excellent. Our waitress was so friendly and helpful and... More

This place was buzzing. Drinks were decent and service was very good. If you're in the neighborhood, come here. Great ambiance and crowd. Didn't try the food here, but it looked quite good.

While in NYC we were meeting up with an old friend, and they recommended Wilfie & Nell in West Village - it's a delightful pub, and the perfect place to rest and recoup after a long day shopping of shopping. Very charming and a welcome respite - heard that the food was good, but we didn't partake.

We were drawn to this place by it's charming atmosphere with lots of rustic wooden tables and chairs, vases of wildflowers, and collections of Victorian prints and antique bottles. We sat in a quite little room behind the main restaurant area but still received attentive service along with our privacy. The music was folksy and, on a college football weekend,... More

This is a great place to meet colleagues or friends after work for a classy but casual atmosphere. You are steps from the best restaurants in the area, so it's easy to end up staying in the vicinity for the entire evening. The biggest complaint would be that it's tough to get a drink quickly at the crowded bar. If... More

I couldn't love the décor any more, its a great little spot to unwind and relax. I cant wait to visit again on my next trip to... More

I knew that Wilfie & Nell provided a delicious sandwich. It was four o'clock, early for dinner, but I hesitated to visit the shop at night time because I was alone. I looked at the menu, Corned Beef & Gruyere Cheese Sandwich with red cabbage slaw and mustard would be complied with my preference most.  There is no sauerkraut in... More

My husband and I visited New York in August for the first time as a couple. Naturally, I came prepared with my trusty list of Trip Advisor-approved bars and restaurants. Word on the web was that Wilfie and Nell was the place to go for great food and atmosphere at a reasonable price. The night we dined there, we had... More
