After a great day at the Museum of Natural History, we were all tired and hungry. A short walk away, we found what we wanted in "Good Enough to Eat", a small and inviting place on the Upper West Side. It's a really cool place with comfort food. Our table had a variety, including salad, mac and cheese, pancakes and... More

We ate here after going to the Natural History Museum. It is about a 10 minute walk. The food was good, and while the menu was not marked with what was gluten free and what wasn't; the waiter was able to point me in the right direction. Just beware if you have small children... they have one highchair, and one... More

The Migas was large enough to split and the service was efficient for this very crowded Upper West Side spot

I read multiple reviews about the place, and everything pointed to a delicious sunday brunch. I went with my 2 siblings and waited for about 25 minutes to be seated. I didn't mind because I was aware of the estimated seating time. Whom seem to be the owner of the place was very polite, nice, and friendly to everyone. It... More

Just ordered delivery from here. There is so much oil in the fish, french fries and onion rings that I am going to go lube my car with the leftovers after this. It is awful. It's as if the cook didn't let the oil drip off or use paper towels to blot the fried food. Fish is overcooked and their... More

I had some pancakes with strawberry butter and it was just so delicious. The service is great and we had a nice walk in Central Park after the best breakfast ever. Great NYC experience and you will want to come back.

I met my friend here for brunch on a Saturday. It was REALLY packed. She beat me there and sat at the bar. By the time I arrived, it was clear we were going to have to wait for a while but we got lucky and there was another seat at the bar for me. We decided to just sit... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
