Have been going to west end grill for about 5 years and there have been some changes over that time. Mostly good food, wine and beer selection and nice ambiance and good servers. Went there on the Saturday after thanksgiving pre-theatre. Had the special herb roasted turkey dinner. Was expecting usual fare but the meal exceeded our expectations. The turkey... More

After a Broadway show, we stopped in at the West End Bar and Grill for dinner. What a surprise! We never expect to locate a fairly good restaurant in NY without having reservations but we were ever so lucky! The front portion of the restaurant is a rather loud and noisy bar area but there are tables in the back... More

On the way to see Harry TV we decided to stop for a light lunch. Came upon this delightful bar and grill. It was a beautiful day outside and the windows open made it feel like we were eating outside. We had the lobster tacos which were really tasty! The sauce on them was delicious! We also had the summer... More

We came here this week on a quick trip to New York. We both had a delicious lunch and I particularly remember their French Fries. Their hot chips had been cut leaving the skin on. I really liked this touch because I felt confident that they had not been chopped up in some factory, frozen and then delivered by truck.... More

We dropped in for lunch before heading to the airport. I chose items from from the 20 dollar table d'hote menu and my daughter chose from a la carte. Neither of us were disappointed. What gorgeous food and attentive friendly staff. I even asked for 2 spoons so that we could share a dessert and this was not a problem.... More

We were in NYC in early August and visited West End Grill at least 5 or 6 times. I loved their lobster roll--had it every time. I ordered a side salad so I could put the lettuce on the roll. My son ordered something different every time and loved everything. We had Ryan as a bartender many times and he... More

I can't say enough positive things about West End. They were just down the street from our hotel and they kept us fed and watered the entire time we were trapped in The Big Apple last January. Due to the blizzard, Jonas, many places were shut down and the only place nearby that was open was this great pub. We... More

Rather limited menu with a list of starters that was notable for how uninspired it was. For the main course however they had fish tacos which were very well prepared, tasty and filling. The bar was very noisy when we went, but this was due mainly to one group by the door. Good place but not great.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
