My first visit and it will NOT be my last. Very crowded for the holiday but the service was super and the food was five star turkey with everything.

I went for brunch in a sunny saturday. The restaurant was full and since I was alone I went for the bar. I chose the poached eggs and they were not bad, they were just not as good as I would expect. I would also loved to have a bagel or some bread with the poached eggs in the place... More

This was my second trip to Fred's while visiting NYC and they didn't disappoint. The nachos were amazing and the pear salad is delicious. Awesome service as well.

We have had several lunches/dinners at Fred's over the years. The restaurant is casual and has ample seating. We were three generations having lunch there recently, and everyone of us was pleased with the choices. The food is consistently good. My lunch was the best quiche I have ever had.

Great atmosphere, great food and friendly staff. The owner even came and sat with our family for a short while. The meatloaf and spinach fettuccine were fantastic.

Took two grandkids and found more of a Pub with food, not a family place. Don't go on a weekend night if you are in a hurry.

We were wandering around the crowded upper West Side when we saw Fred's. The gentleman at the door, (actually, on the sidewalk), welcomed us in and we were seated immediately - and I wondered if that was a bad sign, as there was a bit of a wait at most places in the area. My fears could not have been... More

Whenever we travel we try to find a restaurant with the name 'Fred's' - Just because our son is called Fred! We all loved our meals and the service was great... My husband is still talking about the spicy chicken even three month down the line. We can't wait to come back!

Had a good meal at Fred's during our stay in new york. Not the best we have had, but no reason to complain. The food was of good standard, worth booking a table because it was very busy.

We visited for Saturday brunch a couple of weeks ago. The salmon benedict was absolutely delicious. The staff are amazing - friendly and attentive. Especially the host, Richard, who was seating people and helping the wait staff as well. During a sudden unexpected downpour of heavy rain, Richard went out of his way to help outside diners make their way... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
