Rather limited menu with a list of starters that was notable for how uninspired it was. For the main course however they had fish tacos which were very well prepared, tasty and filling. The bar was very noisy when we went, but this was due mainly to one group by the door. Good place but not great.

This was some of the best quick food I've ever had. It was well worth the price and near all of the theatres as well as right by Times Square.

Great little bar with scrumptious food! The Heirloom Tomato Salad is to die for!! Open air seating adds to the fun of the hustle and bustle.

We went here because it was close to our hotel and were quite pleased. Our server was very friendly and when I asked to hold the bleu cheese on my steak salad she immediately offered that I could choose another cheese. The salad was very good and the piece of steak good sized and cooked perfectly. My children raved about... More

I visited this restaurant last week and everything about it was excellent. The staff were very attentive and drinks we topped up regularly. The food was delicious, I only wish we had managed to eat a dessert.

We went there for breakfast but regret we went there. Our experience was very bad and spoiled our morning. We were seated next to the window. The restaurant was not busy only 3-4 tables was occupied and yet we had to wait a long time. The waitress came and handed us menus. I asked for glass of water, she nodded... More

this was my second time eating at the West End Bar & Grill. The first time we picked it at random because it was close to another destination. We found the food to be good, the drinks to be reasonably priced, the atmosphere to be relaxed and the wait staff attentive. This time we specifically came here for all the... More

This pub has a clean, warm, inviting interior, which feels airy and spacious in the warm weather, because they can open their large front and side windows. The servers are friendly and the cocktail menu offers a terrific variety of wines, beers, and mixed drinks. We enjoyed it so much for cocktails after seeing a show, that we returned for... More

We ate at this bar and grill two different times after attending Broadway shows. Both times I ordered the veggie quesadilla that was delicious.

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.
