    Nice and cozy place, ask for the table in the (covered) garden. In the winter you can enjoy the fireplace.

    Lived and worked in and around the Village since the 80s and never been before tonight which is my loss. Beautiful, delicious and great service! Inside or out back a great NY experience.

    Stopped here for brunch. The Waverly is beautiful, absolutely loved the ambiance of both interiors and the garden in the back. On the other side, food is just ok and the service is kinda disappointing

    Asked to be seated at the garden by the fireplace. Lovely setting. The food, however, was just average.

    Room 16 is the smoking room which is supposedly the favorite room of Waverly’s ghost. Servers claim that the room is haunted by a man in a top hat and waistcoat. Read more

    Biscuits and butter, chicken pot pie, this is high-end home-cooking done right. A NYC staple.

    The Bitches say: B-. The special atmosphere really carried the brunch experience for us from the moment we stepped inside, but the brunch itself could have had a bit more pizazz. Read more

    Looks good, service OK but don't eat here. All food overcooked, they don't know what clotted cream is, long waits, presentation sloppy, limited drinks selection, poorly selected.

    The garden is amazing and they have fireplaces going when it's cold. The food is average for the price range, but I'd still recommend it if you like ambience.

    This place is home. The food is great (get a booth), the decor is perfect (that mural!) and the bar makes a tight martini (kalamata vs green). Classic WV.

    Beautiful spot. Surprisingly reasonably priced food but the wine list has some sticker shock. Celeb sightings galore. I sat next to Keith Richards and Fran Lebowitz.

    Ask for the room in the back. Quaint atmosphere. The waitstaff were nice, attentive. Most of their dishes are reasonably priced (for NYC). I had the $125 macaroni & cheese w/white truffles.😱Good wine
