If you're looking for good 'ol comfort food in a lovely NYC neighborhood, Fred's is the perfect choice. All of their food is good, but the mac and cheese is the best. And save room for dessert, the brownie sundae is Delois's with a hot cup of coffee. We go every year on my birthday, and you'd think we were... More

A cosy place with great service, love the dog-story behind the place! Super delicious chili con carne, spicy and heavy, like a perfect bar meal. The straff was very welcoming and even gave us a cheesecake on the house!

Normally I would have scored 4 stars, as the food was great and the place has a nice atmosphere. However, at a certain moment a huge cockroach was passing by on the wall and under our table. The waiter killed it, but it this is not what I like to see in a restaurant. I hope this was an incident,... More

The server was very friendly and got me a bowl of water for Cosmo when I asked. This is a definitely a pet friendly location because when... More

Coming from a world of mediocre service Fred's was a pleasant surprise. Great people and great food. If I lived here, this would be my local hangout. This place hits the mark on all counts.... Food quality, portion size, reasonable prices and great service. We'll be back!

After a long day I was searching for a good place to sit, relax and have a nice meal. Stumbling upon Fred's, I was extremely happy with the find. I had 3 chicken tacos for taco night. The service was fabulous, always kept my water full, very attentive but not overbearing at all, the food was delicious, and it was... More

We had a lunch there with our 2yo girl. Reasonable price and good service. Children friendly place. The burger is pretty good. Kid pasta plate was kinda simple.

Upon arrival we looking for a quick and nice meal. Fred's offers tables inside and outside. Due to the weather we sat inside in a very lively room. I think that we were lucky to get in without reservations. The restaurant offer the typical US dishes like burgers and mac and cheese. The quality was good but nothing special or... More

We cancelled a reservation at the Marriott in Times Square in favour of Fred's, what a great choice. On the evening of our visit the place was really busy with local runners. We were given a table immediately, staff were polite, friendly and helpful. Great knowledge of the cocktail menu and helped us to choose drinks to go with our... More

Time Out NY named us one of The Best Burgers in the City, and our Macaroni -n- Cheese made with aged cheddar is legendary.Fred’s well-rounded menu has something for everyone, be it Crab Cake Benedict or an omelet for brunch, Fred’s Pear Salad, a burger, Lobster Ravioli, or our New York Shell Steak for dinner. Our desserts are the perfect finish to any meal, whether you choose our Homemade Cheesecake or California Carrot Cake.Our full bar is always a great atmosphere to enjoy a drink and get to meet other people. Try a themed cocktail off of our menu, like Hair of the Dog or Paw Punch. We also offer Trivia ever Monday at 8:30 p.m.

Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years.
