Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Looking for an early dinner, we came across this little tile gem. Food with a Greek influence - we were thrilled with the food. My octopus salad was the best I have eaten since the early 80s. The mains were delicious and the service is as impeccable.

    We had a fantastic night! There was live music with Sarah the pianists and it was simply awesome. The staff created such a friendly and open space which made the whole experience even better. Would definitely come back again

    Sid Gold’s is magic. This is my number one bar in NYC. Celebrated my birthday here and it was unforgettable. The karaoke is always welcoming and inclusive of all. Thanks to Paul, JJ, Ester, and John for making our night so special. Can’t wait to come back again and again.

    We visit family in NYC several times a year, and my wife is always disappointed when the family doesn't spend an enjoyable evening at Brandy's. Arrive by 9:30 as the tables fill up . The entertainers change nightly, however, the piano player, bartender and servers are all vocalists, some of whom have amazing voices. Requests taken. There is a two drink minimum, stick to well drinks as cocktails are subpar. We usually stay past midnight . The patrons are a diverse group and appreciative. No food is served. Tips are expected. It's understandable but unfortunate that the wonderful performances are not open to those under 21. We've never seen anyone stagger out or be asked to leave.

    What an amazing place, just an awesome atmosphere with great music and great drinks and delicious food. Get the basturma and the veriniki, but to be honest you can't go wrong with anything on the menu it is all delicious. Go grab a cocktail, order food, and enjoy the music and fun. A must stop in New York.

    We had heard the Monkey Bar had been refurbished. We enjoyed cocktails and a lovely 3 course dinner in 1940s vintage Manhattan. Excellent food, drink, and service. Great murals on the walls capture glimpses of its storied history. Enjoy!

    We were drawn to the Balcony Bar by the sound of a string quartet. Having managed to secure a table, we had a pre-dinner snack while listing to the ETHEL quartet. This is a delightful experience available in the early evening on Fridays and Saturdays. Prices are on the high side, but if you like the music — contemporary classical yesterday (Saturday) — you will emphatically not mind paying. This is an urban oasis!

    We were looking for another place when we came across this awesome piano bar. It is quaint. We had an amazing time. The wait staff sing and serve. Everyone that sang had amazing voices and they were very personable as well. We went 2 nights of our 3 night stay in NYC. If you go, I hope your experience is just as awesome! :)
