“Loved Fred's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

We chanced upon Fred's as it was round the corner from our holiday apartment and loved it so much we went back 3 times during our stay in NYC the staff we're great especially Natalie who helped us celebrate both our engagement and the loss of our beloved pet dog both of which happened during our trip. ( the irony of Fred's being named after a pet dog and the pictures of pet dogs adorning the entire bar was not lost on us!) we can't wait to go back. Thanks everyone at Fred's , you have a great bar and made our holiday!

“Very good comfort food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

This is a very popular neighborhood restaurant, and even though it has no windows or light, it feels cozy and welcoming, and not at all claustrophobic. It's menu is mostly comfort food which is really well done and reasonably priced. The other night, we had a juicy and flavorful burger and the vegetarian wrap. Both were excellent.

“Nice Neighborhood Eatery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

We chose Fred's after we were told of a long wait at another restaurant. The staff were friendly and accommodating and the food - chicken quesadillas and steak fajitas were good. Also enjoyed mango ice cream for dessert. Overall a good second choice.

“Nice atmosphere in a neighborhood-y place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Fred's is not a "destination" restaurant, but a reasonable neighborhood default kind of place: nicer than a diner and not as expensive as most others in the area. Basic burgers, good vegetarian choices, chicken, fish, pasta. Nothing that jumps out, but all passable. Brick walls, pleasant service, beer on draught. Photos of neighborhood dogs on the wall---Fred himself is a black Lab!

“A small and very charming restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Fred's is a small restaurant with lots of soul. From the dogs decor, to the food and drinks, to the staff - this place is perfect for a relaxing meal away from all the city noise. My boyfriend and I were visiting the city and stayed in a nearby hotel. A quick TripAdvisor search led us to Fred's and we had an amazing datenight here. Creds to Fred's for serving apple cider!
