Right next to Union Square and was close to our hotel
The Donatello.
We popped in most days for drinks and the service was
good as was the selection of beers n' spirits.

Food wise it's more of a cheap n' chearful quick bite
place.

Location Location... Leftys is just down from Union Square and is a very large space inside. So even on a busy day or night it seems possible to get a table. Atmosphere is not the greatest but it is more of a pub than a restaurant in my opinion. My experience was service was somewhat lacking the evening we were in Leftys. Might want to order two beers at a time! Food like hamburgers and sandwiches were adequate but not great. Best thing going for Leftys is its location and its volumnious enterior!

We had a great night here, with a great lively atmosphere, a fantastic reasonably priced meal and drinks. There is a piano player who likes to get everyone singing along. Well worth the visit!

This place is brilliant for a quick snack, or for a beer, or both. Down one side is the bar, with plenty of stools for the booze hounds, and down the other is a canteen style food service area. We only ate sandwiches, the Rubens being one of the tastiest I have ever had, only beaten by Katz's Deli NYC (a hell of a lot cheaper though). In the evening don't be surprised to find some kind of jazz band or pianist playing. Simply a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
