We had a couple of meals in Brendan's and each time I couldn't finish. Great staff, great choice of drinks and very large portions

The is a really comfortable bar/restaurant to visit. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The food and drinks are very good and not too expensive for NYC prices. This bar is a favourite of my husbands as it shows live English football! Would certainly recommend a visit here.

Visited due to recommendation from Hilton Garden Inn Staff, as we were staying there in late December. My family of 4 split 2 steak dinners, added a couple of salads and the bill was only $126.00. Which was good from my NYC research. We all loved the succulent steaks that were cooked to perfection. Bryce really took care of us.... More

This place is like a home away form home. A great place for a gin & tonic, or a meal. You can eat at a table towards the back, or in the bar area. The staff are friendly, and this bar has the best fish and chips anywhere. If you stay in The Gregory Hotel, you can grab a meal... More

Had dinner here on two occasions on a trip to New York over the Christmas period and was very impressed with everything. The building itself is very beautiful with high ceilings and a huge open fire and fireplace. The food was excellent with good large portions and high quality. We had the fish and chips, the shepherds pie and turkey... More

Well certainly not when I wanted to use it whilst staying in the adjoining hotel. Restaurant was closed at 10.30pm when I arrived at hotel after long flight from Europe despite being advertised as being open until 12am! It was also closed from 24th - 26th December despite being attached to a hotel and that said hotels only dining facility... More

We were looking for a restaurant in NY and my husband chose Brendan's based on Trip Advisor reviews. We needed to go for an early dinner, and it turned out they still had the lunch menu going at 4PM, which I think might have been a bit more limited (and no cheaper). Either way the selection was good enough, and... More

Absolutely amazing food! Nice surprise! Best atmosphere if you enjoy a quiet, calming getaway from the noise. The quality and quantity of the food was great along with affordable cost! Will definitely return on my next visit to NYC

Brendan's in located in an old hotel lobby so there are some beautiful architectural details especially in the back dining area. We found the staff to be friendly and welcoming. The food is solid, nothing special, at a fairly reasonable price. If you need a warm meal in a restaurant that isn't packed, this is a good spot for travelers.

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.
