Located just two blocks from Union Square, Mumbles is a contemporary bistro that highlights everything we love about New York. An upbeat, affordable restaurant based on the way we like to eat today, our diverse menu is based on fresh ingredients and expert preparation. We are taking a modern approach to comfort food, with menu items ranging from BBQ Spare Rib Sliders and Truffled Mac & Cheese to Jamon Croquettes, Seafood Risotto and our famous Penne alla Vodka. In addition to tasty lunch and dinner options, we also have a full bar with a great selection of American Craft Beers.

Burger Tuesday

Went here with friends for their Burger Tuesday special and was very pleased. The shrimp burger was excellent, with arugula and pickled onions rathe than the usual mayo based tartare sauce. Along with a draft for $18.00, it's a good deal for Manhattan.

Really nice exterior facade and tables set up under an awning. I sat inside at the bar and had gazpacho soup and a hard root beer. Service was friendly, prompt. Prices were fair and the place was clean. I will go back.

After a long day of walking around town, we were tired and ready to just have a nice meal. We made reservations but were hours early. They had no problems making an exception to seat us right away. We sat outside during happy hour and it could not be more perfect. Watching the people walk by while enjoying the pizza... More

My girlfriends and I had Sunday brunch at Mumbles and I was very impressed. They offer $15 Bottomless Mimosas, Screwdrivers and Bloody Mary's. I had the Florentine Benedict and it was extremely yummy. I wasn't sure it would fill me up, but it did. We had a reservation for 9 and were practically the only ones in the restaurant at... More

This is a follow up to my July 2013 review... Three visits last week. Delicious food and outstanding bartenders... What more does a restaurant need?

We stayed in NYC for thanksgiving and decided to book a table in advance as we did not know how busy it would be. We were early for our 2pm sitting and were concerned at the lack of other people in the restaurant, however it soon filled with large groups and locals. Portion sizes were excellent (unable to finish the... More

Nice atmosphere. Menu choices are limited. Food is good but service was really slow. Wouldn't recommend.

Enjoyed a late night drink here after we'd been to see the Blue Man Group - barman was very chatty about our forthcoming trip to vegas. Nice bar - food looked good.

Two years ago I went to this place and could not get served. I decided to give it a try this year. All I wanted was a glass of red wine - the first waiter I spoke to said this was ok but just brought water. The second waiter I spoke to took my order. Then a waitress came over... More
