Even though we got there a few minutes before the kitchen closed, we were still able to order. I had the pot pie, it was really good! Food was brought out quickly and the portions were large. I really like the atmosphere, it reminded me of a revolutionary war tavern in Williamsburg.

This is one great place! There is an up market restaurant that we ate in one Thanksgiving. Then they have 2 bars that serve food and one of the bars has music live music and a DJ on a Friday. Also a whisky bar that is very cosy. The food is tasty and plentiful and reasonable price. We normally share... More

This restaurant is excellent but the menu is limited. They have a bar dedicated to whiskey drinkers and a second bar dedicated to drinkers of wine and other spirits. Food is a great price for quality and location.

Walking into this tavern is incredible, it reeks of history! What an amazing place! My family had just finished climbing to the top or Lady Liberty's crown, we were feeling incredibly blessed to be Americans, here in NYC and looking out the face of the Staute, and so now, here we were, at THE most historical place to eat lunch...

I thought we were just going for the atmosphere of dining in one of the oldest buildings of NYC. But the Sunday brunch menu was wonderful and creative. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. This is also one of the most charming streets and neighborhoods in NYC.

A group of 5 of us went to Fraunce's for a business dinner. It was a great experience. The service was very good, as was the food. Plus the history of this place is interesting as well. The wine list is extensive, and priced as you would expect in a place like this (which means slightly overpriced, but not criminally... More

Set in an old building that has historic value. We stopped here after watching a ticker tape parafe or the womens soccer win for the World cup. We had a great meal as well as some great beers.

The Rueben, Burgers, and Chicken Pot Pie were delicious; however, we also ordered Tapas…Boquerones, Marinated Olives, and Chopped Garlic Tomatoes…the Boquerones' plate served had three anchovies with three slices of stale bread; the Marinated Olive plate was not marinated, yet edible and the bread was stale; and the Garlic Tomato dish lacked garlic with the same stale bread.

Awesome meal and a huge variety of beers. Great history and highly recommend for the atmosphere. They have more of a formal dinning area, whiskey bar, beer bar with live music and a hideout bar not to Marion function rooms. A must try in lower Manhattan..

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
