Absolutely love The Consulate. Always a 10/10. Can’t beat their Happy Hour either. As a neighbor, this place is a perfect chic spot. Sit at the bar with George - he makes the best martinis! P.s. they have the best fries on the UWS!

The Consulate is such a cute little restaurant! My husband and I stopped in for some much needed Sunday afternoon drinks. We had some shopping to do on the Upper West Side and stumbled upon this wine bar along the way. The atmosphere is very...welcoming and calm. It’s a great spot to relax, people watch, and have a refreshing drink. I got their Chenin Blanc. I have a lot of trouble finding bars or restaurants that carry this kind of wine and since it’s my absolute favorite type I will be back for more. George was our bartender! He was very attentive and always had a smile on his face! I think we found our new spot!More

I’ve gone to a lot of bars and wine bars in the area but I keep coming back to the Consulate. The vibe is perfect and the people working there are awesome. Ask for George behind the bar he is the best.

When a favorite server of ours from an East Side restaurant we frequented moved here, we had to check it out. My wife and a friend headed for The Consulate for the first time. The ambience is pleasant with tables well spaced. The vibe is...lively. The food is quite good. We started with shared burrata and smoke salmon flatbread (quite original). The main courses were seafood pasta, a Consulate burger and my choice seared duck breast. All delicious and more than we could eat. The pineapple cake dessert was a disappointment. Mother made better. Best of all, Bibi (Biljana) was there cracking jokes. The owners came over to say hello. We'll go back.More

I used Trip Advisor to find this highly rated restaurant. We visited here on a Saturday evening. We were early so the place was still not too busy. We were disappointed with the quality of service; the limited and high priced wine list; the food...was just average. The pasta was over cooked. Not impressed with any of our dishes we ordered to share - it was just average. For the high ranking for this restaurant I do nit think it is anything special and not worth going out of your way.More

This place had #3 rating at Tripadvisor, but it doesn’t hold up. (I, personally, even suspect that rating is influenced by bots). This place has too many sitting places for its capacity, hence too crowded, too noisy and the staff is overwhelmed. Though the food...and the place try to seem “high-society”, the quality just doesn’t hold up. The steak was barely eatable and the fish hasn’t left any emotion but regret. That is even more upsetting, as the prices are 20-30% higher then you would expect from such a placeMore

We had big expectations about the restaurant being so highly reviewed but in reality is nothing special. Basic food just overpriced.

I sat at the bar, and George took wonderful care of me. Service was very fast, and both the food and drinks were excellent. The brunch burger is one of my favorites on the west side. I have been here a number of times, and...have enjoyed every experience.More

My girls and I enjoyed a drink and dinner at the bar with our bartender George. We had the rib-eye and Brussels sprouts. Perfect place for a drink and dinner with friends or for a romantic date. The patio doors were open which allowed for...a cool breeze. We will definitely be back!More
