    Terrible service. Crap food. Entire place smelled. Was only 9.95 so good if you are cheap?

    Brunch was mediocre. They wouldn't let 2 of us sit outside because they only had 4 tops but NO ONE EVEN say out there.

    The couscous was like eating a mouthful of sand. Our waitress barely spoke English and when I asked for a dirty martini, I got straight gin with one olive. Not what I wanted. Also ignored for 20 min.

    Once you have two margaritas, even the shittiest menu items taste ok. Bacon/Avocado sandwich was ok. Fries were great. Meh.

    delicious bbq pulled chicken, deplorable service. the server had us write down our orders at the end -- who does that?

    Great wings, good selection. Nice place for visitors /new to NYC & Village. PRO: Part sports bar, pub, and outdoors seating is flexible and fun; creative chef. CON: Bathrooms tiny and cheap-looking.

    The service was lousy my first time but I gave it a second chance and had a better server then. The food and margaritas are good. Fidy is a great waitress and is on top of everything. Very friendly.

    Sitting outside is great for people watching, and a twilight view of Freedom Tower is tourist-worty.

    Jeff McCord · May 31, 2013
  • Martijn B.

    Pitcher of Sangria with a plate of nachos outside in the sun, and just watch people... :) Awesome!

    The service here is seriously terrible - it's cheap and in a cool location but don't be in a rush if you come here
