Service staff was really good. And the food was solid. Known as a hang out for the actors of NYC (don’t use your flash if you do take pics) it is really busy and reservations are required. One of the best features is its ambiance...More

Unfortunately, Trump is correct is being proudly noted on the menu that the Waverly Inn is the worst place in NYC. Went with friends, got burgers, cheese plate, salad, tartare and the signature chicken pot pie. Thank goodness we didn't go for the truffle Mac...More
