The interior is very nice - classy, amazing artwork depicting celebrities. Service was very above average and we had no problem finding a lounge table after seeing a show. We only ordered desserts, and they were very disappointing. Red velvet cake and the chocolate peanut butter explosion. They tasted like they had been sitting in the fridge for a long... More

Not wanting to eat at another over-priced NY restaurant, we stumbled into Faces and Names as we walked by. What a great find! We sat at the bar and talked with some other people there. Everyone seemed like a regular and were very welcoming to us. The bartender, sorry I don't have her name, was friendly, fast and helpful. She... More

Went here on Friday evening for few drinks and sat by the bar. The owner of the place was sitting next to me with his friends. After some conversation he gave tour and told stories about the great paintings. Thumbs up for this place! 👍

I usually stop into Faces and Names whenever I'm in NYC for conferences. The bar area is great for meeting up with clients/friends and it has a comfortable atmosphere. Food is standard pub fare and The best part is that the service is attentive and prices are reasonable - a combo that can be hard to find in Manhattan. I... More

Went for a drink after dinner and ended up staying several hours. We expected a tourist trap and were pleasantly surprised to find a warm, relaxing place to enjoy some good cocktails and conversation. The drinks were done well, and when one of us spilled one unglamorously, the staff cheerfully came to clean it, and my companion up and then... More

I have been going to this bar for over 10 years! And I must say that I had one of the worst confrontations with a staff member and manager that I've ever experienced. I will not be going back there! Beware of some of the staff as this could happen to you! We booked a table in the back for... More

We stayed at the nearby Wellington Hotel and every evening would visit a local bar for a few drinks. After experiencing the same old Irish pubs during our stay we decided to stop by Faces and Names on our penulatimate evening and were pleasantly surprised at both the atmosphere and the price/quality of the drinks. We enjoyed the bar so... More

Been here a few times over a number of years when visiting New York. Great place for a drink in the evening and the food is great too. Brilliant service and very reasonably priced when you consider the location. A must visit when in NYC!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
