This tavern near the Financial District is where George Washington gave a famous farewell speech to his officers at the end of the American Revolution. We were there during a thunderstorm, and the lovely rooms and lanterns made it feel like I'd been whisked back to Colonial times. The short ribs were fabulous. The filet served on a hot stone...

Fraunces Tavern is worth a visit! I like the atmosphere and the food was good. The kids also found it cool because they had just learned about George Washington in school. Only downside was the extremely slow service we received in an almost empty restaurant!

I took a group of students to visit NYC for an epic adventure beginning at the historic Fraunces Tavern! We made a reservation well in advance, but after getting soaked by a freak rain storm on our way to the hotel, we called and asked if we could postpone our reservation...the staff was more than accommodating and we were able...

My daughter and I made reservations at Fraunces Tavern, which was our last stop on the Revolutionary War walking tour. It was a warm day, and our feet ached, so we were happy to be seated at a nice two-top in front of the former fireplace! Our lemonade quenched our thirst, and we also drank up the atmosphere in this... More

On a recent family trip to NYC, we reserved a large table here for a group of 11. Everyone at and drank and enjoyed their food. The kids were excited to be dining in such a historic and storied location. The service was also fairly consistent, so we were pleased. I had the mussels and thought they were excellent.

What a place ! Loved the atmosphere in this wonderful historic setting where George Washington said goodbye to his generals. We were looked after by Eddie the manager and his team. The food and wine were first class and all beautifully presented. A great find nestling in the middle of the financial district and well worth a visit after a... More

This place was built in ~1712 and George Washignton spent time here, said goodbye to his troops! The atmosphere is very "old New York", Great place to stop for a drink or light lunch. Highly recommended, especially for the atmosphere. In lower Manhattan, deep in the financial district and close to Battery Park

We wanted to see the upstairs museum before lunch so the hostess put us down for a table that was ready when we were done touring the museum. It was very busy but the service was excellent. Our food arrived in a timely manner and the waitress checked back with us several times to replenish drinks and check that everything... More
