    My favorite burger in NYC--even compared to Minetta Tavern, Shake Shack, etc. Get it w a side of sriracha mayo. Sit at the bar and let the knowledgable staff introduce you to your new favorite beer.

    The staff is knowledgable and suggest amazing dinner. Make sure to order the kale salad, calamari app (for realz), lamb and ribeye entrees, bread pudding and salted caramel dessert. All to die for...

    Popped in for breakfast, came out in love. Great coffee and delicious Belgian waffles with vanilla ice cream, mascarpone and grilled peaches. The staff were attentive, & the ladies' room was pretty!

    No other place quite like it in the city. Delicious menu choices for both dinner and brunch. I'd give resto my vote for favorite burger in NYC! The cannibal, next door is great, too!

    I'd wanted to go here for a while, and am now squarely a fan of this place! A very good beer menu, for one thing. Loved the deviled eggs, the frites, the crispy chicken. Go!

    lunch service can be spotty but the hangover pasta and anything meat related is great. beer selection is insane - get the rodenbach grand cru by the glass just because you can.

    The Cote de Boeuf was amaaazing. The bone marrow was an excellent compliment to the rib eye. And the Bernaise dipping sauce with a hint of maple? So yum. Seriously melts in your mouth.

    I had their Bronx brewery radiator pasta, basically lamb neck pasta and it was delicious ... I have never thought they can make pasta that way, very American... Though the wait is a little bit long

    Brunch: it would be a sin not to get the eggs benedict-- perfectly poached eggs perched upon a bacon-studded liege waffle. Maybe ask for a drizzle of maple syrup. Sweet and savoury at its best.

    Great food and location. The service is very courteous! Taste one of the desserts! But don't sit close to the door, it's really drafty when the door opens and closes.

    Very interesting spot, You pick your tasting menu for the table and share like 10 dishes. Again, long dinner great cocktails unassuming simple interior. Intimate, great for dates. $$$$

    Very nice decor. Had leige waffles which had strawberry reduction and creme fraiche. Very good. Waffles were crispy and had crunch sugar. My friends egg benedict looked great. Good indonesian coffee

    Order the burger! It's not always listed on the menu, but it's available, and it's amazingly good. Once claimed by New York Magazine as "New York's BEST burger" &ordering off menu makes you extra cool

    Belgian frites are good and all, but they get nutritious vegetables right too. Try the roasted cauliflower!! Read more

    Excellent brunch! if you want sweet go for the waffles, savory the eggs benedict. Deviled eggs for the table to start and you can't go wrong.

    One of my favorite places in NY for maybe reasons. Live the beer selection, meats always cooked perfectly, correctly once named the best burger in the city.

    Great selection of beers on draught that are not common at other bars. They also have incredible deviled eggs & the spiced nuts were great. The mussels with green curry & the carbonade are amazing!

    Upscale eats paired with Belgian beer. Recently had the chicken, with chicken meatballs and a side of roasted brussel sprouts. Delicious!

    The lamb chops are really good, which is an inverse relation to the level of service. Also get the deviled eggs but don't bother with the tartar.

    For Belgian food, Resto is spot on. Cheeseburgers, deviled eggs, and Belgian fries are irresistible at the haven for comfort food.

    Good food. DO NOT expect to have a quick meal here. One 2-top, one 6-top and 4 people at the bar, 2:30 I. The afternoon and it took 50 minutes to get food!

    It's brunch. It's Sunday. It's bacon and a scratch-made bloody mary. It's fresh yogurt, crunchy granola and toast swimming in egg yolk.

    Food is really good (definitely get the fries!). Service can be a little slow sometimes, but otherwise great spot.

    The best pancakes in all the land are served here. Get a Bloody Mary to go with and you will be ruined forever for brunch.

    For brunch, the eggs benedict is amazing. Two runny eggs over waffles with bacon cooked into the waffle = sweet/savory bliss with every bite!

    Eeeeeeh I dunno. They made up for the seating issue with champagne and free dessert (and a really attentive staff), but for $120, the amount of meat we got was kind of shameful (and waaay too fatty).

    A good portion of Belgium waffle with two ice cream scoops! FRITTATA is VERY GOOD. Home cooking taste.

    The chicken entree is worth it for just the chicken sausage. Amazing. Pay with Cover to complete the experience.

    For brunch, eggs Benedict gets a twist, being served on crispy waffles studded with chewy lardons. A regular special is deliciously light pancakes with cream and fruit, like freshly sliced peaches. Read more

    Great brunch spot. The Hangover Pasta lives up to its name. Their "Sunday Supper" is pretty great for foodies, too.

    Grab at least 6 friends and set up a large format feast! Boar, veal, goat. You name it they can get it.

    My favorite burger in New York, but for such a meat heavy place, they do a great job with the any fish, veggies or fowl on the menu. Everything's good!

    Eggs Benedict is great! Best to come after 2pm when it's quieter otherwise it's a bit on the annoyingly loud side

    Any of the veggie sides or specials. Fries, and splurge on all the dipping mayos.

    The beer menu was a massive leather tome, the frites and selection of dipping sauce were perfect. If you're feeling daring, try the pig ear salad.

    Skip Penelope, this place is 1 block away and never crowded. Eggs benedict, scotch egg and hangover pasta are good choices.

    Great lunch menu- don't miss the grilled cheese with pork belly AND bacon. Also, the cheese comes from Murray's- it's the best!

    The tete de cochon sandwich and deviled eggs w/ crispy pork toast are a must try. For sharing w/ meat lovers, get the charcuterie plate - all about the meat.

    Not a fan of the deviled eggs, but did very much enjoy the chicken liver toasts, and I'm not even a liver guy!
