Greenwich Village's best casual American restaurant, outdoor cafe, and Jazz venue; featuring the rich tones of exposed rafters, inlaid wood floors and a double-story stone fireplace. Multi-level dining allows everyone to have the best seat in the house, whether you relax on richly upholstered banquettes or overlook the entire scene from a cozy booth on the balcony. Beneath an enormous copper hood, you'll find the grand rectangular bar, where cocktails abound and grazers can enjoy the freshest shellfish from the raw bar. Regulars and newcomers alike enjoy live Jazz seven nights a week, as well as during our Jazz Brunches and new weekday Jazz Lunches Monday through Friday. Eight frosty draught beers, an incomparable live entertainment schedule, the finest seafood and steaks, and the best people-watching view make a visit to Garage a must when visiting New York City's West Village. …
This place has declined.... Went to this place for the first time about 3 years ago.. went back recently and I must say the food has declined since then. The chicken is overcooked and dry, the coconut shrimp was way overcooked as well. I'd give this place another chance if the cook doesn't fall asleep while cooking my food....The bar is awesome though.
Ambience and Taste!. The food here is great and the service is greater. Not to mention the ambience. I liked the overall setting A LOT and it was only improved by the fact that our waiter was pleasant and attentive even though we only ordered entrees (no drinks, no appetizers, no coffee). AWESOME
the Garage has it all.... Marianne is the best bartender I have ever met. She makes the best Margaritas this side of Tiajuana - you will not be disappointed! And the live jazz is excellent...
Total Surprise! Who knew?!. I have lived in the west village for 14 years and only discovered this place a few months ago. What a find! Great service, food AND atmosphere. Highly recommended!
Great Food & Setting -- Great Date Spot. We sat outside and the ambience was perfect -- there was music playing inside that we could hear, but it didn't outdue our own conversation. The food was very good all around -- the asian spring rolls are a great appetizer. The filet was very good as was the seafood scampi. Steer away from the parmesan fries (they use powdered parmesan), their house wine selections, and mixed drinks (there's no alcohol in them!!!) -- stick with beer or a straight up martini and eat till your heart's content:)
Great Atmosphere and Food!.
I go to this place everytime I'm in NYC. The food is great. Try the Philly steak sandwich with filet mignon. Or the coconut shrimp. And the salad is great!
Best place to sit is upstairs near the fireplace but with a view of the Jazz bands on weekends.
Great place to sit outside and drink cocktails and people watch during the summer.
best brunch. This is one great place for brunch! The vanilla bean soaked french toast is the best. The weekends offer great live jazz! Also a fun place for people watching!
Totally overrated!. I've heard many good things about the brunch here so my friend and I decided to go. We got a seat outside--the overall atmosphere is nice...and so is the mimosa...but that's where it ends! Our waiter took our drink orders and never came back! About a half hour later another server came out and walked around to ask people if they had ordered...I got her attention and we ordered the omlettes--i asked for mine to be cooked extra ...then our 1st server comes over about 10 minutes later to take our order (Uh?!). About 15 minutes later our food comes--I taste is the brunch potatoes...not too bad...but the omlette...yuck! Can we say extra runny?!!! I could have had a better one at a diner for half the price! Anyway, if you go to Sunday brunch don't expect the best service and you might want to try the "lunch" items...
