Comfortable bar with friendly service and a range of tasty beers, a short walk from times square but in a less bust spot. The food we had was ok too.

We stopped in here after seeing a Broadway show to have a drink and some snacks. The menu had twists on traditional bar fare, and it was fine but nothing special. Nothing wrong with it either! It was what we were looking for after a long day of sightseeing -- a place to chill and have a drink and eat... More

I wrote a review of this place in 2014 and we returned yesterday and I still feel the same. We both tried their grilled cheese sandwich, with brie, apple slices and bacon. WOW, very, very good. Unfortunately, the fries that came with that were terrible. They tasted of bad grease and were soft and mushy. I didn't eat them. However,... More

After long walk in Central Park I made a good choice, stopping by this bar. The food was very good. I’ve tried for the first time a tuna tartar. It was delicious! I liked the stylish interior of this bar and goo atmosphere. The service was okay and the local bier was good too. I recommend this bar.

Stopped in solo on a Monday night for a quick dinner at the bar. Good, friendly service, neighborhood feel, very average and overcooked burger. Typical NYC prices for food and drinks, but there are so many bars/pubs in the area to have to settle. Not sure about happy hour specials.

Quite, small, friendly. Had a burger and fries. Very tasty. Sat at a table, but the bar was the place to be!

The staff! My experience at West End Bar & Grill was so lovely. We did not plan on going to West End, but our original plan to go to Mother Burger after Avenue Q fell though due to an incredibly long wait list. Scrambling to find another option as to not have my daughter's 15th birthday celebration fall apart, I... More

Steak was over cooked and over seasoned. The steak literally tastes like a pumpkin pie. Very expensive for not great food. Full of drunks too whom are very loud. I also felt rushed to leave by the server who kept checking if we paid yet.

Solid level of food and service. Little noisy but very busy bar traffic. Nice random pick before the show. Pub menu not large but great burger.

Concierge at our hotel recommended West End for lunch when we got to town and were looking for some place convenient to get decent food, beer and watch basketball. I was really happy with the recommendation. Food was actually really good, atmosphere was cool, service was good and it was really reasonably priced. So if you are just looking for... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
