Visited the west end bar and grill for lunch on a Wednesday. 45 minutes after ordering meals, we starting to think the staff had forgotten our meals. But finally after a 55 minute wait they arrived. And don't bother with the shrimp and asparagus Ravioli.

Comfortable bar with friendly service and a range of tasty beers, a short walk from times square but in a less bust spot. The food we had was ok too.
