world famous - the Corner Bistro is a step back to the glory days of NYC - a time when businesses were not forced to charge super steep prices and rents were actually somewhat affordable. this place is solid gold. outstanding burgers and chicken sandwiches - well priced booze and fantastic music. I cannot stress enough the importance of keeping... More

A classic neighborhood bar in the West Village. A great bacon cheese burger cooked rare just the way I like it and terrific French Fries. Normal prices too which is always a relief in the City. I had one of their beers on tap, a dark McSorley that I’d never heard of but it was a nice mild ale that... More

A nice place, probably much metter for dinner than for lunch. I had an ok burger and a nice beer: nothing to complain about but nothing particular striking either.

I have read about this restaurant, and it was a good experience. The cheeseburger was great and fries too. I will be back.

The best burger I have ever eaten in my life. Great value for money. Great service. Place frequented by locals and sometimes with queues.

The Corner Bistro is no-nonsens, fresh burgers and fries. They also offer grilled cheese and chicken sandwiches. They have a full bar. The food is great but the wait is often daunting and annoying. Also, cash only is inconvenient and nobody likes to pay extra fees for using the in-house ATM.

Went there for one reason: hungry and walking by. Not disappointed tho, prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is amazing - really a small town restaurant in the middle of NYC, definitely worth paying a visit to if you're in the area!

Timing is everything here as the place can get really crowded really fast. But the close quarters shouldn't discourage you from coming and enjoying the infamous Bistro burger. I love the corner pub feel and the reasonably priced and flavorful burger. At this price, it's hard to do better. The one exception could be the fries...they're just okay and really... More

I've been enjoying the delicious burgers here for 25 years. The beef chili with cheese & onions is just as good as their burgers! The fries always come out perfectly hot and crispy. I turned my friends & family onto this tavern a long time ago & they always want to come back, for at least one meal, when they're... More

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
