    Good service, lots of space for big groups, and good beer list. Veggie burger not recommended though

    used to be fantastic but fallen so far, cold hamburgers, rotten pickles, & terrible service. I used to go here weekly and now I've finally gone my last time. Don't waste your time.

    I am a bacon fan, but the breakfast sausage had a nice spice/sweet balance

    I am drunk because I ordered food over an hour ago and it isn't here and I've been drinking to cope

    the brunch prix fixe is awesome. the banger and mash is soooo good

    Spotty service. Some staff is ok, but others are complete trash at their jobs. Hit or miss.

    Daniel Sircar · June 8
  • Annabelle A.

    Cottage fries!

  • Aya F.

    Sit at the counter, grab a beer, and chomp on the beef jerky.

    The service here was excellent! I feel like finding good service is so tough these days. The host was so kind and the food was surprisingly good

    Get a beer, a few $1 duck wings and hunker down at the bar for Monday Night Football.

    Lots of house sodas. Get the root beer. It's amazing!

    Adam Alix · October 25, 2014
  • Miguel d.

    Cocktails and charcuterie. Don't overextend yourself with some of the larger menu items; also despite the wine list there's nothing all that serious to drink

    Miguel de Leon · October 10, 2014
  • Michael C.

    The veggie burger was amazing, good beer options too. And fast friendly service!

    Michael Clelland · September 17, 2014

    We love snacks – especially the ones served up at The Vanderbilt. Our personal favorites are the Beef Jerky, Strong Beans, Carrot Salami, & the Rabbit Mortadella! (Order all of the cocktails!)

  • Chris G.

    Everything on the menu is great. Really.

    Chris Glushko · August 9, 2014
  • Village Voice

    The bar-snack menu is admirable, including Serrano ham croquettes, homemade Malaysian jerky, and deviled eggs with Brit-style curry sauce. Try the fall salad with faro, and the glazed ribs are great. Read more

    Spawned by the owners of Saul and Num Pang Sandwich Shop, the Vanderbilt is a restaurant for those who love rich food. In pursuit of that ideal, homemade charcuterie commands center stage. Read more

    Indulge your inner Midwestern fatso with the delicious cheddar bratwurst

    Erin Schulte Collier · July 10, 2014
  • Vince M.

    Excellent! Sat by the grill , chef gave us complimentary deserts and other treats.

    Vince Matthews · June 29, 2014

    Don't order the cheesecake. Two 1x1 inch bites with a small scoop of ice cream and the requisite raspberry drizzle on the plate. For $9. Meh.

    Joshua B. · April 30, 2014
  • Joseph T.

    Skip the beignets, really thick. The exact opposite of Cafe Du Monde beignets.

    Joseph Terranella · April 27, 2014
  • Jocelyn

    whatever you do, try the Brussels sprouts.

    Jocelyn · April 24, 2014
  • Claudia M.

    Nothing great, tasteless beignets, my eggs were floating in hollandaise sauce... Not coming back

    Claudia Mora · April 20, 2014
  • Sefi K.

    Service is slower than molasses

    Sefi Keini · April 19, 2014
  • Karen A.

    An hour for eggs over easy with sausage and medium rare steak and eggs? I like it here but the kitchen is too slow.

    Karen Abraham · March 9, 2014
  • Dan G.

    The brussel sprouts are as great as everyone says, as are the cottage fries. Be prepared for slow service, though.

    Dan Geiger · March 9, 2014
  • Leland S.

    Service was so slow that despite good food I'll probably never return.

    Leland S · February 16, 2014

    Sat @ the chefs counter... Great experience.

    DUCK WINGS!! Order the Duck Wings NOW!

    mikeithdavis · February 7, 2014
  • Danielle D.

    Braised short rib dish and Brussels sprouts starters, do it.

    Danielle DiChiaro 😎 · February 1, 2014
  • Dens

    Appetizers? The Shisito Peppers (make sure to dip them in the Pimentón powder) and and the Deviled Eggs. I thought the jerkey was just "eh".

    Dens · January 6, 2014
  • Andy Y.

    Stay for the food, leave because the music is really bad.

    Andy Yaco-Mink · December 7, 2013
  • The Corcoran Group

    While the brunch here is pretty solid, we like to come here for a cocktail & the Crispy Duck wings after seeing a concert at Barclays. From 11pm-12:30am Thursday to Saturday, it's happy hour!

  • Brahaani M.

    get the chili for brunch. It's what it sounds like&is good. Chicken hash sounds delic, bt ingredients don't coalesce into a cohesive dish. In the end it lacked flavor and the veggies were nearly raw.

    Baked eggs.

    Great drinks for brunch- Bellini's are a must. Try the skirt steak... but not the eggs Vanderbilt!

    Ramya · October 10, 2013

    Really good beef jerky. Really.

    Michael Parkinson · September 25, 2013

    Duck through the mysterious-looking, white-tiled front door to find a gleaming stainless steel and tile interior, elevated southern snacks, and a sleek, speakeasy-worthy ambiance.

  • Arielle

    There must be two chefs. Sometimes it's phenomegorical and sometimes it's good edging on weird.

    Arielle · August 10, 2013

    Amazing burger, cool atmosphere.

    Delic! Tess is the best.
