Really fun night with yummy food, good value and service, fun drinks, atmosphere. Had a really good time. Four stars because the meat was dry. I think they must pre cook earlier in the day and leave heating to make sure it comes out quickly....More

We ate dinner here on a Friday evening. Service was good and good buzzy atmosphere. Although the meals were large portions, the quality was better than expected for the price. We drank a pitcher of Margaritas ($50), and would recommend the hanger steak, smoked chicken...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
