went here twice on recent visit to New York. Warm and friendly atmosphere, staff pleasant and very profession. Cocktails were good and not overpriced, food (at the bar as we did not have a restaurant reservation) was tasty and generous.

Perfect place for a genuine NY experience: extremely friendly and pleasant people, great service, good food. We just walked in one evening and really felt like we belong there, and that is something you can't put a price on, can you now?

Fred's has a really cute and quaint vibe. The food is good and well-priced. I took advantage of the brunch special, which I think was $18 for coffee, an entree, and a Bloody Mary (or mimosa). The Bloody Mary's were pretty good. I would recommend...More

A nice place with a nice bar, a large central restaurant and even a small private back-room. There is also outdoor seating in summer. The service is attentive and friendly. The food is good but kind of "run of the mill". You will not find...More
