Authentic neighborhood bar on Amsterdam Avenue on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The food was good, simple pub fare.

On a rainy/icy February night, this place was perfect. No complex foods here - but food good enough that you walk out satisfied and content. A nice large selection of ales, friendly and attentive service. Salads, burgers, tacos, mac and cheese. Our lamb burgers perfectly prepared and deliciously juicy. Salad a standard package affair, but fine.

Disappointed in the lack of food offered for anyone that has dietary constraints (gluten free). A small plate salad and a very salty chicken kabob? Not to mention there was very limited seating and no place to even put a drink.

Family of four with a need for lunch after hours at the Museum of Natural History. Great beer selection and we had four different and good beers. Hamburger seemed fine and spicy chicken sandwich and greek salad both very good. This is a pub atmosphere, nothing fancy. The fries were overcooked, but the yam fries and onion rings pretty good....

In short - we got here at noon after a hearty breakfast so stayed just for one drink. Good service, excellent range of beers - but the food menu looked tremendous! It seemed to have everything you want in bar food - looked great when coming out - I have no doubt had we eaten there Amsterdam would have got... More

The Amsterdam Ale House is great for an early evening drink, with a good selection of draft and bottled beers. We found the staff to be friendly and efficient. The food was quick in coming and tasty - typical American portions - Huge! We visited three times, during our recent stay and enjoyed sitting at the bar.

Staff ( main waiter) was rude and unhelpful tables were too close together and when we tried to move them so we could sit down, he was rude and obnoxious even though we had no choice! There was only one table behind us and he could've walked around especially as it was empty! And he took a tip he did... More

I normally don't eat at restaurants that are a B NYC Food Safety rating, but my friends insisted. After our food was served, a rat started running around the restaurant, terrorizing customers and staff alike, bumping directly into the hostess' feet. Does it even matter what I say about the food, since there were rats running around? They were nice... More

A couple of friends of mine dropped in before a show at The Beacon Theater. The place was packed with football watchers and really no room for anyone at the bar. With that said, we decided the 5 of us would sit at a table and order drinks, now keeping in mind we had time to spend enjoying drinks, after... 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.
