Samantha T.Samantha Taube: Very good cocktails for the UWS. not sure they are totally worth the $16 price tag but for the only cocktail bar in the area, I would go for it. If you can't get in, Johnny downstairs is great!

HectorHector: Happy hour 2 for 1 with some dollar oysters, this speakeasy is definitely the best one in UWS. Get the Old Fashioned.

Roger S.Roger Schonfeld: Wonderful hideaway, classic space and a beautiful bar. Lovely cocktails, elegant martini service.

Southern / Soul Food Restaurant · Upper West Side · 570 tips and reviews

Lesley K.Lesley K: Great fresh cocktails & liquor selection, open late. Friday late nights fun & not too packed. All the southern influenced dishes are best, and the seafood good quality too. Biscuits are a must-try.

Joel P.Joel Pavelski: The $16 pickle sampler is absolutely enormous, good for the whole table. You can't go wrong with the pickled green beans or the loaded Bloody Mary.

ブルーノブルーノ: Came here on a Sunday for brunch (more than 1hr to get a table!) but the wait was so worth it. Super crowded, but the food is good and the cocktails are great. Loved the Rosemary vodka lemonade. Yum.

Nina N.Nina N: Delicious, thoughtful cocktails in a great atmosphere of exposed brick and candles. If you're hungry get the lamb cigars and wrapped dates.
