“Yes it is a place to see and be seen but that is because the people you want to see appreciate its ambience and its consistently good food and service.”
“just wanted outta there and didn't have dessert (and i NEVER don't order dessert).”
“Perhaps a failed actor or maybe just a bad barman, he spoke to other customers about us occupying seats at the bar.”
“Highlights on the menu include two flawless tartares(salmon and tuna), the famous seasonal black or white truffle mac'n cheese, a perfect Berkshire pork chop with baked apple, luscious wild salmon, and a bountiful chicken-pot pie.”
“The bar area (albeit small) is a great place to mingle and the selection and service in the bar are both good.”
“this is what you make it, good food and atmosphere, wouldnt bother coming for a drink, far too expensive and they dont carry most things, but the food is different gravy, never had any trouble with tables, superb place.”
“However, the hostess was so disagreeable with us that I would never go back again.”
“The dessert waiter, and older gentleman with much more grace and a sense of customer service was much nicer, more engaging and less pretentious and the Bananas Foster was delicious.”
“The food was not impressive, yet when I asked the bartenders how certain dishes were, and they told me to get the most expensive dishes, saying that here, the dishes are original.”
“In any respect, we were seated about 15-20 minutes after we walked in and our server - Len - was very attentive.”
Lot of Hype, Doesn't Deliver. I went here for a few drinks after dinner in the west village I had three glasses of amaro and my gf had two cocktails and the bill was $75, haha. I guess $15 a drink is not unheard of in nyc muchless west vill. The overall decour was meh. The service was good and the wine list laughable.
Great time!!. A friend in town randomly booked us in for dinner and we had the BEST time!! The staff was great, even to the point of being flexible to hold a course as we wanted to slow the meal down a bit. We had Oysters, Sea Bass, Tuna Tartare, Steak special and a wicked cheese cake to end it. The wine was well paired, we went for a balance of budget and desire. We sat in the back room which has a dual feel of green house and living room. It seemed as though we had a staff of six serving us, everyone was helpful and engaging. Maybe we just got lucky, but I'd go back! Not to mention David Spade, Selma Hyack and Dutchess Fergie were all there - what a nifty night!! Thank you Waverly Inn!
Pretty People in a nasty place. Having eaten at some beautiful places all over the world I was bitterly disappointed and embarassed by the Waverly Inn. Don't bother is my recommendation! The wine list is ridiculous so we just did cocktails, can live with that! However, I have never felt so bullied into finishing my meal quickly, I actually had a bus boy clear my guests plates as each finished and then stand over my shoulder watching for me to finish my last mouthfull and put my fork down! No would you like a coffee or another drink, tick, you're outta here! So much potential and such a waste of such a beautiful venue.
very bad experience overall.
We made our reservation through the concierge in our hotel that made sure to reserve us a table IN the restaurant. When we arrived they gave us a table by the bar next to the hostess stand. The bar had over 30 people standing waiting for a table. Next to us there were 3 other tables empty because nobody would dare sit in this horrible place.
The customers that were standing kept on bumping on our heads all the time.
We ordered our food "macaroni and cheese with white truffle' in eleven minutes our food was served. Not even enough time to cook the pasta. Absolutely mediocre!!! In 40 minutes we were in and out.
Sorrounded by standing customers and empty tables we had the worst saturday night. What a deceiving place!!!!
Hall of shame.
I do not even know where to start.
Reservation at 9pm, we sat at 10:30pm. Rude and obnoxious service. Expensive food with average quality. The wine list is totally absurd: No wine below $100; a couple around $500 and the majority above $500. A glass of Sauternes priced at $600, yes just a glass.
I was with some friends visiting from London.
What an embarrassment ...
Same your time, save your money, just skip the place.
Whu knows the tel.nr of The Waverly Inn and Garden.
Whu know the tel nr of this restaurant pls?
In This Economy Are You Kidding???.
If you are into a wine list with most bottles over $1000.00, thats right over a grand good luck. If you want to wait until you order for the server to just bring some bread , good luck. If you want to just sit and relax and have some apps then decide upon your entree, good luck. You have to order everything all at once, otherwise the chef will not oblige, and until you order everything you are not allowed bread or water. OH! and if you do not order bottled water forget any kind of decent service.
IN THIS ECONOMY ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? GOOD LUCK!!!
reservation. does anyone know how to make a reservation at this restaurant. I have called the number at least 50 times and it's always busy! Please advise!
it is what it is.
this is what you make it, good food and atmosphere, wouldnt bother coming for a drink, far too expensive and they dont carry most things, but the food is different gravy, never had any trouble with tables, superb place.
mac and cheese overrated
Don't listen to the negative reviews.. This is a really great hotel and one of my favorites in town. Of course the negative reviews are probably those of somebody that couldn't get a table and definitely not a hotel reservation even if they paid for it! This place is definitely all about the see and be seen. It's unlike any other place for a reason. You get what you pay for.
