Stayed at the hotel next door booked in at Brendan's last minute. We had a great night. Steak was fantastic cooked to perfection. The whole group really enjoyed it. Atmosphere was nice in the restaurant and the bar was good and a bit more lively. Lots of nice people and great staff & service.

This is really impressive inside. The beer choice is poor.
We've eaten at the bar and the restaurant and the food was excel ant and good value (for New York)

Have been coming here since it opened as I always stay at the Comfort Inn which adjoins the restaurant/ bar. Have sampled many items from the menu, restaurant and bar snack, and have not had a bad meal yet. Would recommend.

Food was good, no one in our party of five had any problems. Wine list was limited. The table we were sitting in had a very cold draft coming from somewhere and it was quite bothersome. Service was good without being excellent. Even with my so so comments, I would go back, for the amount paid we were very satisfied. I feel that with very little work, probably one extra waiter, improved wine list and check the drafts and a little more decor, it would really improve. Still, do go and relax and have a good dinner.

We'd been toying with the intention of visiting here during out stay at the Hotel Metro which is directly opposite and on the last night our honeymoon we did. We were pleasantly surprised. At first appearance it looks like many of steak house bars you see in NY. However, on being greeted by a member of staff we were escorted past the busy bar to the restaurant area which is situated at the rear of the premises.

WOW. What a lovely eating area. Well spaced out tables, an open log style fireplace that was fired up and well appreciated on such a cold day and a great value for money menu. There is even up stairs mezzanine eating area. All complimented by illuminated faux stained glass windows that compliments the lovely décor.

I had the Angus Cheese Burger and the wife had the Lamb Shanks. Both were delicious and generous in portion size. The menu was varied and offered plenty of choice. Drinks were provided promptly and the food was served quite quickly once ordered. The missus also loved her desert which allowed me to sneak in another beer.

All in all a very pleasant evening that rounded off a fantastic holiday. We will definitely be visiting Brendan's Bar and Grill on our next visit to New York. I wouldn't normally go to the effort of writing a review but this place deserved one.
