We came here for brunch before attending a broadway matinee and we were very glad we did. The place has a nice atmosphere, the brunch menu is interesting and the food was delicious. The presentation of the food was excellent as well and the wait staff was very friendly. The mushroom toast was delicious as was the pastrami hash. Everything... More

We all had the beer battered deep fried burger and all loved it! Great service, staff was very friendly. Decent prices for Manhattan. I'd go again!

Had lunch here, food was good, but nothing special. We all had hamburgers and fries. Burgers and fries were what you would find anywhere. I would say for what we got prices were high.

We thought that we had found somewhere really new and different when we came across the West End Bar & Grill on Eighth Avenue. Dishes such as shrimp and asparagus ravioli sounded mouth-watering...so we sat down and ordered. The food tasted good, but, and of course it might be a complete coincidence, we both had upset stomachs later. But do... More

Nice space, should have been a nice atmosphere, but bad service left us feeling less than charmed. Wasn't that busy, either, so no excuses there...waitress seemed to be focusing largely on the drinking tables-seems like a happy hour hangout, which is fine but being ignored if you aren't isn't cool... The food: Fish tacos so salty they were almost inedible...took... More

After returning to this bar after a great visit over 2 years a go... I had high expectations. It didn't disappoint. During our stay we ate from both the brunch and main menus - the food was great on both accounts. Great to see that the fish tacos remained on the menu. The staff are friendly yet efficient and it...

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

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.
