Wine Bar | Harlem, Manhattan

I never checked in because my friend was already there and there was enough space at the time. Live music was great but did make it challenging to talk to each other. It was our first outing together. The server was friendly and made recommendations around our sangria which was very nice. She checked in on us regularly without it being too much. We really enjoyed the experience. More

Our first time while visiting our daughter and her BF who live in Harlem. They ranted and raved about the food and for good reason. Appetizers Cod Fritters and Seafood Basket were excellent. Entrees Red Snapper, Rack of Lamb and Seared Scallops were all Superb. All plates were cleaned, nothing left, no leftovers. Dessert was also very enjoyable and excellent as well as the service. Great food and atmosphere. Definitely worth the time and money to visit. More

The only negative was that neither of the two French burgundies that we ordered were available, so a bottle was purchased at a liquor store across St. Nicholas and we had no say in the choice. More

Seafood | Harlem, Manhattan

The restaurant staff was very accommodating. But then, the restaurant was not particularly busy that evening. The ambiance was comforting yet energized. The meal selection was sufficient regardless of the out-of-stock Caribbean corn item. The selection of main dishes included various combinations of salmon, crab, shrimp, tilapia, and lobster. The lobster tacos featured actual and not imitation lobster meat and were delicious. All-in-all, the dining experience exceeded my expectations based upon an experience at another location many years prior. More

Bierstrasse
Bierstrasse
(9)
Gastro Pub | Harlem, Manhattan

I liked Bierstrasse for what it is - casual atmosphere, good selection of beer, good comfort food, and great music. Our group went there because we heard the band was good and they didn't disappoint. The band was called Uptown Royalty NYC. I was a little unsure if there was going to be music, other than by word of mouth because their website was under construction. I called and left a message, but no one called me back. I thought they would since I had reservations for 6 people. When we got to Bierstrasse I asked the person who sat us if there'd be music and she said music was only on Sundays. It was Friday night. About 10 minutes later we saw the band set up. :-) Perhaps management wasn't the most organized that evening. Service was pretty slow and it wasn't packed. I would recommend this place if you're looking for a casual night out. The pretzel was great and so was the burger and Kielbasa. More

MIST Harlem
MIST Harlem

American | Harlem, Manhattan

David Murray is certainly recognized as one of the most gifted musicians and his band met all the expectations that come with such high acclaim ! Mist is an ideal setting for Jazz in Harlem with great aesthetics. The bonus is the absence of annoying chit chat from attendees that so often ruins listening in some clubs in NYC! More

Discover Harlem

Renowned for its vibrant culture across music and literature, Harlem’s burgeoning restaurant scene has made it one of the most exciting neighborhoods in the five boroughs. Soul food is always on the menu, but now it has a modern twist—part gourmet, part classic comfort. And it’s not all chicken and waffles uptown. Ramen shops beckon with their slurpy noodles, and down-home seafood shacks sling salt water treasures. To spice it up, you can also explore NYC’s only Somali restaurant for savory pastries and other adventurous eats. Amidst the brownstones and history of Harlem, new flavors await.
