The Waverly Inn was recommended by friends who used to live in the area and now return for special occasions. The atmospheric restaurant was full on a Monday evening, although fortunately not too loud. The food was excellent, the wait staff polite and helpful. We...More

We had a lovely Sunday brunch in the garden. Lots of delicious entrees from which to choose. We appreciated that the waitstaff did not hustle us out once we completed our entrees. A bit pricey. Probably good to make reservations ahead of time.

If you are an ordinary person and Google "Waverly Inn", you might be frightened by old stories of impossible-to-get reservations and snooty staff. This is no longer the case. Probably the management has figured out that you can't sustain a restaurant on celebrities alone, and...More

Fantastic place - open fires, efficient service, knowledgable waiters. Beautiful decor. A piece of old school New York lux - perfect dinner to kick off our honeymoon. Mouth watering burgers. Loved it.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
