One of the few places where the bartenders are nice to people. They don't act like they are doing you a favor by them pouring you a drink. The bar may be a little tight but it's a great place to sit at the bar and eat. Also, if you love dogs, the place is loaded with pictures of them

We met friends here for dinner at their recommendation. The tables provided enough room to eat and talk. The filet of sole was flavorless however the autumn salad was good and could have done as a light meal. The chicken parmigiana was unremarkable. Service was good.

We were visiting family in the neighborhood and stopped here for dinner. Our kids love mac and cheese so they all ordered it off the kid's menu. Unfortunately, none of them liked the taste of it as it was made with stronger, more pungent cheeses, not the usual mild cheeses used in kid's mac and cheese. Wish the kids' menu... More

Couldn't get into the current hot spot across the street, so stumbled down into Fred's. Eclectic menu, from great crab cakes to Shepard's pie, along with other classics. Excellent neighborhood place, good food, good ambiance, and a lovely story with the name. I'm a cat girl, but fell in love with Fred! Am surprised it took me this long to... More

Cute restaurant with good food. I hadn't been here in awhile, and was happy to see the food and vibe was still good.

This is one of the coziest, pleasant and comfortable places to eat. The owner, David, and his staff are extremely warm and friendly and will do most anything to accomodate. With a diversified menu containing a lot of down home food as well - Mac n' Cheese, hamburgers, Veggie burger and orecchiette w/sausage are my favorites. Tonight I had the... More

I've been a few times at Fred's and I had a great time. I remember spending a whole day there in the middle of a blizzard and my friends and I we had a blast. Bartenders are super friendly and nice and they have good American food.

I've been here 3 times in the last couple of months. The food has been consistently very good as has the service. Very full menu and for NYC reasonably priced. Seems to be very popular as the bar is packed most nights.

Fred's has good American style food. Great for Brunch (with a good brunch deal!) and dinner. They also do good holiday dinners. Very comfortable atmosphere - with a British pub feel inside. Friendly, relaxed, unpretentious. One of our very favorites in the neighborhood.

Fred's is a great local restaurant for visitors to NY. It's always crowded, and it's got a huge bar area where you can eat if you'd like. We ate at the bar, and I had a lamb burger with sweet potato fries. Yummy! The owner is really friendly and all of the staff are nice. There are fun photos of... More

Time Out NY named us one of The Best Burgers in the City, and our Macaroni -n- Cheese made with aged cheddar is legendary.Fred’s well-rounded menu has something for everyone, be it Crab Cake Benedict or an omelet for brunch, Fred’s Pear Salad, a burger, Lobster Ravioli, or our New York Shell Steak for dinner. Our desserts are the perfect finish to any meal, whether you choose our Homemade Cheesecake or California Carrot Cake.Our full bar is always a great atmosphere to enjoy a drink and get to meet other people. Try a themed cocktail off of our menu, like Hair of the Dog or Paw Punch. We also offer Trivia ever Monday at 8:30 p.m.

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.
