Very Cool Bowery Bar

This place was suggested by a colleague for an after work tête-à-tête. Awesome choice. The oysters were great, service excellent nice comfortable space. Not cheap but totally worth it. Some nicely quirky bourbon programs too. Perfect.

Pleasant place, with high ceilings, airy, but with an old time feel to it. Interesting razor clam egg salad, and sort of eggs benedict with prosciutto and a wonderful potato crusted base. My wife had a salad that would have been enough for two or three. All very good.

I went to Saxon and Parole mid week for a drink. I arrived about 15 mins after it opened and the bar was already full which left standing room only near the window. It took about 5 mins for me to get a drink but I ordered the Bowery Fix which was excellent and had just the right amount of... More

The burger here is easily one of the best in the city. Go for it, and honestly, anything here is worth it.

Visited in the early fall for a business outing with a co-worker. We arrived just before it became busy for a dinner rush. We ordered quite a few items for just the 2 of us, we wanted to try so much! One of our items was forgotten, and instead we were served with the marrow appetizer. We didn't say anything... More

Maybe we ordered wrong but my friend and I were underwhelmed with our Sunday brunch here. The duck salad wasn't great - the duck and dressing were bland. The real disappointment was the French toast - it sounded so amazing (French toast with banana and homemade Nutella) but it just wasn't good - couldn't even taste the Nutella! Probably an... More

Been to Saxon and Parole twice on visits to NYC, fantastic food, wonderful service and a great atmosphere we love the creative menu and the execution on the food we had was perfect. They have a very reasonable wine list with price points for all budgets. The bar scene is fun and the eclectic music mix is awesome!.

The food was very good but our service was less than satisfactory. Our server continuously disappeared and was not interested in servicing his customers.

After reading dazzling reviews about the food and decor here, I enthusiastically made a reservation as part of our Thanksgiving week in New York. I can't fault the staff and the food was good. Our table was draughty, as it was within site of the door, and not behind a wall, which would have provided shelter from the poorly insulated... More

Travelling from the UK we were advised to head to Bowery to try the burger at Saxon & Parole and we weren't disappointed. We arrived early for pre dinner cocktails and were greeted with a glass of fizz, the cocktails following this were brilliant. We had the bone marrow to start and when we thought the meal was finished the... More
