Visited for dinner one evening and enjoyed a beautiful meal. We returned for cocktails another evening and there was live music in the front bar area. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Their Manhattan Clam chowder was very good. A bit bland compared to most but enjoined. Our group of four were originally seated at a cramped table in the front but they were able to find a more suitable one in the back dining room. Service was so-so but we were not in a rush. Everyone had a different dish and... More

Whether dining solo, meeting with friends or celebrating with family 16 is always welcoming. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. The food is good (I love the calamari and their fries !!) and drinks are well prepared and varied. The staff is pleasant and efficient. Their small bar is very popular and there is usually some sort of entertainment on... More

Menu is mainly high end comfort food. Great burgers. For the most part reliable quality though I had a mishap the other day with a salmon wrap that was way too salty. Lovely staff, very comfortable environment. I haven't checked out the live music in the evenings, but intend to.

This is a great, lively spot to go in Westfield. The bar and restaurant are always filled with locals, and when there is live entertainment, it has a special ambiance that can't be beat in Westfield.

This Bar & Bistro has great live music every evening from 8-10pm. It is a unique environment with options of sitting at the bar, lounge, or restaurant. Wednesday nights are my favorite for bluegrass music! In*joy

My wife and I love the small plates! Crab dip ismy favorite while my wife loves the cheese platter. We both love the drinks as well. Creative drink and food menu makes this place worth the trip.

Recently had a late afternoon lunch at 16 Prospect. I had been to the location before when it was the Northside Trattoria with the same local owners, brothers Chris and Tim Boyle. The owners are very present and friendly, offering to modify menu items on request. The wine and beer selection is great. The salads and pizzas are excellent. I... More

Stopped in here while looking for a glass of wine and some small bites. First thing you notice is the décor. Looks like an old tavern with brick walls and classic wood work. Good wine selection, outdoor seating, and a decent menu. Had the Bacon Mac and Cheese. Very good and Very filling. Did I mention it had Bacon? Good... More
