Stumbled upon this joint strolling the West Village one Saturday afternoon. It's funny, it had exactly what we wanted - late afternoon oysters and rose, but that staff sort of detracted from the experience. Normally, I don't mind a staff that is boisterous and comfortable with/around the patrons and maybe it was the time of day, but there was something... More

Was great to sot and just be in a spot that did not make you feel as if U needed to hurry up and go. Bartender had some humor.

We go here before 6pm when it is quiet and there are $1 oysters. After 6pm the price shoots up. Generally a small menu, but the food is really good. Bartenders are serious and knowledgeable and the staff is warm and friendly. It's a small place so we love being there during the lull.

Delicious food. Nice well balanced contrasting flavors. They have a small (mostly fish although they serve a mean steak and vegetarian dishes) menu but all dishes are prepared to perfection. The experience was only enhanced by the very energetic and cheerful crew. They were really enjoying themselves and the food tasted all the better for it.

Managed to show up when the restaurant wasn't busy...yay! Our waiter was so friendly and helpful. The bloody mary with a beer chaser was good. Avocado toast with a small side salad was exactly what I hoped it would be. Lattes were well executed, too. Great music playing on their sound system (thank goodness no Hall & Oates, which we...

Found this place by complete accident during a recent trip to NYC. My wife and I were walking back uptown from Washington Square Park and were looking for something light to eat and a glass of something, saw Jeffrey's and thought we'd give it a try. Needless to say, we were so impressed by their parmesan grilled oysters, we came... More

The cocktails are off the charts - they are actually that good The seafood is plentiful, if somewhat expensive. But then again, that's NYC for you The service is good (even if they *do* like to push the expensive stuff. sigh) The atmosphere is cosy, warm, and inviting. In short, if you've got the money, it's an easy place to... More

Fabulous fresh cocktails in a cool totally hip village bar. Everything is hand made muddled and poured. Cool music and brick and wood decor complete the ambiance. A must for a pit stop.

We visited this buzzy little spot just after 11am on a Sunday ( incidentally Trip Advisor showed closed all day so maybe check if going out of your way. As we were heading to Greenwich we just pitched up) and were quickly found a counter spot by the smiling staff. The menu is varied and a crushed ice bar displays... More

We are from the UK and visited Jeffrey's whilst we were in NY as it had been recommended to us by a local. The food was very high quality and you could see the chefs attention to the little details which makes it special. Even the bread tasted amazing and we learnt they source it fresh from a local bakery.... More

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
