A lovely eatery with a great brunch and fantastic service. Although not the cheapest well worth a visit.

“Good Eats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

The hostess was so pleasant and really accommodating. She seated me despite the fact the the rest of my party had not arrived. The service was efficient, not rushed, and the breakfast food was excellent. A friend had the pancakes which were superb. I had the poached eggs with quinoa, lentils, and bernaise sauce. It was excellent. I would definitely go back there.

Service was very good. A bit slow to get food out. Very fresh fish and salad. Drinks were strong. Overall, happy with visit.

“Best meals all round”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Pershing Square is billed as the busiest and best breakfast in NYC and they aren't wrong. If you're in a rush I recommend arriving at the beginning of service but it is definitely worth the wait if you have to queue. We ate breakfast there twice, lunch once and evening meal twice during our 5 night stay in New York and were never disappointed. Staff are very friendly, atmosphere is great and food is perfect. Would highly recommend.
