“Nice bar, average food...”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Myself and my girlfriend stumbled into this bar whilst exploring Greenwich Village. As we stepped into the restaurant we where pleased with initial impressions and decided to stay for dinner. The service was good and very friendly, our waitress was very pleasant and food arrived promptly. We both ordered the Hanger steak. At first glance seemed like a very good steak, however the more we ate the saltier it got. We couldn't decide if it was the seasoning on the steak or the fries alongside but it definitely took the shine off the meal. This aside the steaks where cooked beautifully and if you like salty food I would recommend to others, not quite to our pallet.

“Beautiful bar”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

This is a beautifully styled bar where you can sit up on a high stool at the bar and soak up the atmosphere.

I didn't have anything to eat, but the locals were friendly and Liam the barman is a genuine old school Irish barman.

Definitely worth a visit.

“Good size patio for people watching”
Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

had the potato leek soup off the special menu..was looking forward to a big hot bowl of creamy soup to warm up a chilly day..was served barely warm, bland..I dont think it was seasoned at all..square bowl of blah. If the soup had been worth eating I would have been dissapointed by the portion size. Nice big patio to grab a drink and people watch, but save your appetite for another place.

“Awesome atmosphere”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

For a bar in the area, it was much nicer than I expected. The atmosphere of the bar was great. It was a little pricey, but overall bar service was good and the drinks were on par.
