Not a bad burger, but pricy compared to other places. The avocado was not ripe - so tasteless and the buns are a bit boring. Recommend going to Bareburger (organic and more selections... same price) around the corner. Wouldn't go back.

The restaurant and ambiance were great. Service was fast and the food, burgers and fries in particular, was really delicious. The meal was slightly expensive, though.

Great food and quick. The ala carte menu can make the price of your meal quite pricey although good selection for a burger. Plenty of in door seating. friendly staff.

The quality of the food is really good. That is the nicest thing I can say. Expensive, with all the money you are shelling out for food, the least they can do is serve your beverage with ice. This place feels dirty from the open windows and doors. Large flies are hovering over the uncovered recycling and garbage containers. I... More

For sure, don't come here for the price. It is more than twice the price of Burgers Chains like Shake Shack but our Burgers were good and we especially liked the fries. For 5 people, we paid around 90$ and there are only few tables, so make sure you can sit before ordering your food. There are also Vegies burgers... More

It is one of my favorite places in New York. They have very high quality burger and fries. If you happen to see Zaitzeff Chocolate Chip cookies, then take one or two, they are the best. I wholeheartedly recommend this place.

My husband and I had a 1/4 sirloin burger each and one mixed fries to share. DELICIOUS. AMAZING. I like the fact they don't have toooo much choice. Amazing at what they do!

We where passing this place twice and the place was always full. One day we were lucky to find a free table there. We ordered 1/2 and 1/4 Kobe burgers and sweet potatoes fries + drinks. We paid around 55$. It was good but nothing speciall, meat was a bit fatty. The worst thing was that our clothes smelled like... More

I just ate here a few days ago on a lunch break from work. I have been to a lot of good places in the Financial District, and there is a great Bareburger not too far from this place. At Zaitzeff, I got a 1/4 lb beef burger with cheese and mushrooms, cooked medium. It was actually very good, can't... More

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
