Pete's is a can't miss. Cheap drinks, fantastic atmosphere, tasty bar food . . . what more could you want? We never miss it when we're in The City, and you shouldn't either. (Last time we were there we ran into Owen Wilson. We're not the only ones who love it!)

I have been to Pete's several times over the years and have never been disappointed. We had a great meal recently with relatives from Scotland an all were pleased with Pete's. It is worth a visit when in NYC also has some interesting history which you can read on their website.

We came here because it was featured on Sex & The City series. The feel of the place is really good and the bar staff were so friendly. There were little booths for diners but we only came for a drink so sat at the bar. We ended up having 3 drinks as we loved the place so much. There... More

We asked was happy hour still on as it was 10 minutes before it ended at 7pm. She gave a terse response, well "rude".. We ordered one drink from her and got the... More

If you happen to be in the area then I'd certainly recommend trying this place Great history about the owners and also a large selection of celebrities seem to enjoy eating here Had an amazing choice of food and as it was such a lovely day we opted to eat outside I'd go back

Stumbled across this bar, glad I did. We returned a few times during our stay as it's open until 2am , also serves dinner until late which is good for an after theatre option. Friendly staff, good Italian food, amazing atmosphere. Every celebrity who's anyone has been to this place, check the photos covering the walls. Loved it!

Having traveled all the way from Australia and going to this place because my wife loves sex in the city. We couldn't of been more disappointed. Lousy customer service. The places looks great and has a lot of history and a lot of famous people go there but it's seriously not worth the visit
