Spanish | Union Square, Manhattan

Great for what it is supposed to be. Adventurous menu: soft eggs with colatura, walnuts and lime rind; sweetbreads with baby fennel: cod cheeks pil-pil all great. Wine list is well-selected (very well selected) but not much there for The budget conscious. A go-to fave. More

Afternoon Tea | Union Square, Manhattan

Outside entrance mysterious and unassuming. Inside 19th century elegance. Upon entering there is total silence and quiet serenity. I sat on a settee with silk cushions. The plate service was refined. The server excellent, the five course tea delicious. It was an all round lovely experience. I will return. More

The service and food were fine. There were four of us, and we all agreed the portions were ample and food was prepared well. However, the noise level was deafening. Really loud and probably would not return because of the noise level. More

Mediterranean | Union Square, Manhattan

They clearly did not reserve a 2-person table for me, as requested. But we ended up in the center of the room at a big wine barrel table that is probably meant for standing or larger groups. So, all good! More

Contemporary American | Union Square, Manhattan

The Irvington is my stand-by in Union Square. Food is always good. Service is always great! Comfortable seating & not too much noise. It would be great if they could work out the bathroom situation, however. You have to go upstairs in the hotel next-door. But that's hardly a tragedy. I highly recommend the Irvington. More

Thai | Union Square, Manhattan

The atmosphere is sleek and contemporary. But as is typical in many City restaurants, you sit very close to your dining neighbors. And while some may call it "energetic" the patron noise is very loud. There is a good selection on the menu; the meal was very good; and the service was excellent. The price was moderate for a city restaurant in this location. More

Pizza Bar | Union Square, Manhattan

There are not many places where you can sit outside in NYC and not be breathing in exhaust fumes. Bocce is like dining in a off the beaten place in Venice. Great food and competent service. the only downside is the menu is a bit limited but everything on it is very good and well prepared. More
