Stumbled across this by accident and what a find it was. Like something out of Dickensian London. Absolutely charming. Very reasonable prices considering the location and delicious food. Well worth a visit.

What a great experience lunch at France's was! Having eaten years before at the Union Oyster House in Boston we were looking for a similar historical experience. We weren't disappointed. Not only was the decor and atmosphere exactly what we were hoping for but the service was prompt and attentive without being over bearing and the portions were ridiculous. We... More

This was one block from the Hampton Inn and is now a favorite. We were seated in the bar, got excellent service, and enjoyed the fireplace while the snow came down outside. My wife loved the tuna tartare with guacomole. My steak was not the best I've ever had, but cooked perfectly and was quite acceptable. Good price for a... More

Three of us arrived here early Saturday afternoon after touring Ground Zero to find great live jazz, good beer and an atmosphere that has to be experienced to be believed. The selection of drinks is staggering. I've drunk in more than a few bars and pubs in my lifetime and this was absolutely one of the best. If we hadn't... More

The food was very nice and the servers were all pleasant. The restrooms are awfully dirty. Overall a fun experience. I would come again.

If you are hunting for an old, historically significant restaurants in NYC, having a meal at the pub where George Washington drank his beer couple centuries ago- this place is probably difficult to beat. There is even a live acoustic chamber - jazz music on site, during the brunch. Food wise- they are provably OK, at least from what I... More

I was pleasantly surprised to have a pretty good meal in a quaint, authentic restaurant. And the tables were filled with local Wall Street folks. Only about a third were tourists. I enjoyed an hour (maybe a little more) in the museum followed by a relaxing lunch. oh, and the bar area looks very cool.

Lunch - lobster bisque barely warm, globs of rue in the soup. Truffle fries disappointing. Mushroom sandwich good veggie alternative but was just ok, bread soggy. Flatbread pizza with prosciutto was excellent.
