First night out in NYC. Had a few drinks and dinner. Cosmos were nice and strong and very flavorful. Shared Fish and Chips with a friend. Enough for two, so it was just right. Ambience was nice, service slow. We had to get waitress attention every step of the way.

the breakfast menu is way too simple, and you can't really pick the things one would expect from a restaurant like this one. no coffee menu, no juices offered etc... and slightly too expensive for the quality of food and service... too bad ;)

Food is good but SERVICE IS TERRIBLE!!!!!Waitress put in the wrong order and would argue and claim you've never said it. How much does a plate cost? They just lost a customer. So disappointing, would never go back!

We lucked out, finding this nifty place in a neighborhood not known for its good food and drink. From the minute we walked in to see the handsome, stylish decor, we knew we had a winner. This first foray was to the bar for a couple of martinis, perfectly served up, just as we'd ordered them, by a fine fellow... More

A friend recommended Brendan's for their ribeye steak and she was spot on with her recommendation. The steak was delicious, perfectly cooked and there was a generous portion of fries and vegetables also. The restaurant was busy but the server was friendly, attentive and chatty. The surroundings were laid back elegant and the the food was very reasonably priced. Definitely... More

We ate here one night during our trip to New York. I had ribeye steak it was delicious, it was cooked perfectly and fell apart in my mouth. There was a very generous amount of fries and vegetables. All of us were really pleased with our food and was very reasonably priced.

We had spotted Brendans opposite when we stayed at Hotel Metro over New Year. When we returned to New York in Mid January we decided to pop in foe Sunday Brunch. We chose a nourishing steak and eggs which is offered with either a Mimosa or Bloody Mary, the Brunch menu is $18, good value in Central Manhatten. However the... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
