As the light of day was fading and a drizzle enveloped the city I was walking south under the FDR Drive to the Financial District where I was picking up my daughter for dinner. I spied this restaurant and decided to check out the menu and vibe. Both menu and welcoming interior sold me and I successfully sold my daughter... More

The staff were very good and the interior of this restaurant is very nice. However, trying different food, we found that the salad had the best flavor. We had to keep adding a lot of salt to the food.

This restaurant was recommended highly by our tour guide on the evening cruise of Manhattan. And she was right. Best mac and cheese ever and I got the Paris burger which was soooooo good. You need to eat at this beautiful restaurant. We will be back.

I was very surprised,as I picked this place based upon the tripadvisor reviews. I ordered 2 specials - the flatbread pizza and the mixed berry cobbler. The flatbread pizza was not that tasty, and the mixed berry cobbler was not available - substituted the brownie instead. The brownie was not tasty either. This is a really cute place and a... More

Dined at 10pm in the bar after a long flight. Rachel was bartender and server. Very nice and accommodating. She is also a chef and her chili is wonderful. The burger my husband ordered was also good.

We stopped here for lunch before our boat tour and our server ( a very nice young Russian man) took our orders and delivered our food quickly. We shared several items(we're a group of 7 ladies) and everyone was pleased with the quality and quantity of our meals.

Our waitperson was a native of Ireland and utterly charming. Akin to going to your favorite relative's house for dinner and drinks. Lots of reasonably priced items on the menu. Great variety of beers and the usual miked drinks. Superb location. Steps to the river. Close to subway and pedestrian access to the Brooklyn Bridge. Superb food, superb service. And... More

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
