Had dinner before a show at the Beacon. It was not an original idea. They do not take reservations on concert nights so you need to get there early. Based on the suggestion of the person we called for a reservation we arrived at 5:45 and there were still tables available. It fills up quickly after that and they require... More

Came here with friends after visiting museum of natural history. Menu has a good selection of angus burgers as well as bison burger. Meat was cooked to perfection, excellent service, very quick. Can chose sweet potato fries with burger, which were also very good. Nice selection of beers, many on tap.

On a rainy/icy February night, this place was perfect. No complex foods here - but food good enough that you walk out satisfied and content. A nice large selection of ales, friendly and attentive service. Salads, burgers, tacos, mac and cheese. Our lamb burgers perfectly prepared and deliciously juicy. Salad a standard package affair, but fine.

Disappointed in the lack of food offered for anyone that has dietary constraints (gluten free). A small plate salad and a very salty chicken kabob? Not to mention there was very limited seating and no place to even put a drink.

Family of four with a need for lunch after hours at the Museum of Natural History. Great beer selection and we had four different and good beers. Hamburger seemed fine and spicy chicken sandwich and greek salad both very good. This is a pub atmosphere, nothing fancy. The fries were overcooked, but the yam fries and onion rings pretty good....

In short - we got here at noon after a hearty breakfast so stayed just for one drink. Good service, excellent range of beers - but the food menu looked tremendous! It seemed to have everything you want in bar food - looked great when coming out - I have no doubt had we eaten there Amsterdam would have got... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
