    Good for drinks after work. Wait service is horrible though if you're trying to eat. Not enough staff. Eat at the bar instead.

    Have a friend camp out at a table while you get the beers. It's crowded, but once you settle in it's pretty nice.

    Kitchen closes pretty early but great place to grab a drink on a warm summer night.

    Super laid back. Guacamole is amazing, watermelonade is out of this world. A little pricey but the drinks are strong and the good is quality.

    Service is poor. They are extremely slow. However, it's a great ambiance

    What an amazing place! I will definitely be back to have another awesome veggie burger and drink yummy mango sangria while sitting on a bench swing..doesn't get much better than that!

    Christina Kirsch · July 27, 2013
  • Dee Phunk

    I'm pleasantly surprised that the drink prices here aren't too crazy. I feel like a lot of people know this though because it's crazy here afterwork in the nice weather months. Lock down a swing!

    Lounging around on hammocks in the sun?! Yes please! Feeling like I'm at a mini resort...all in Bryant park!

  • Samara B.

    They have available power outlets on the north side of the building right next to a bunch of comfortable chairs. That combined with the park's free wifi makes for a great spot to do some work.

    You can bring food from outside in here. It usually isn't very crowded. A well kept secret which makes for a much-needed relaxing lunch during the workweek.

    Rebecca Plaine · August 9, 2011
  • Dan K.

    Get the Gruyere; it's like french onion soup on a sandwich

    You're better off finding seats and navigating the bar on your own than relying on waitress service.
