    Manhattans on Tap are flowing at Saxon & Parole. Go order yourself a cocktail (on draft) RFN.

    Pumpkin pâté? Don’t mind if we do. This vegetarian spin-off features pumpkin and basil cream cheese wrapped in Swiss chard.

    A huge, DIY Bloody Mary station that’s rocking more than 35 ingredients and garnishes, including all kinds of Mary uppers like pickle juice, olive brine, hot sauce galore, three (three!) types of peppercorns, horseradish, and a ton of other stuff.

    I earned this brunch, damnit! If only I were a Bloody Mary drinker, as their DIY Bloody Mary Bar is legendary. (I stick with the mimosas myself.)

    My husband and I took business colleagues to dinner at Saxon and Parole. Our colleagues ordered the hangar steak and the Saxon burger. Beef is the specialty at Saxon and Parole and I would recommend ordering beef. My husband ordered oysters which were good but not special. I ordered the papparadelle with lobster--disappointing. There were a few small bites of lobster buried under a sticky, dense pasta that was over cooked.

    Very nice food and good cocktails in a pleasant environment. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Expensive by UK standards but atypical for New York.

    I went to this restaurant about 3 years ago and it was a hot spot. I went with my brother and friends on a Thursday night and it seems to have lost its touch. The food is still good, all the dishes where great - Steak, Sides, Wine, Lobster pasta. The waitress was nice, the wine expertise was good! The restaurant was empty except the section in the back. The section in the font was closed because the AC wasn't working. The bar scene was different, more bridge and tunnel crowd. The restaurant,food is still good, but it has definitely moved off the hot spot list!

    We went there for brunch! It's a really cool place, great vibe and big selection of different cocktails (including a Bloody Mary station for guests), food was excellent (French toast a must try). The bar team was absolutely amazing and friendly! A must see if you are in NY!

    My family and I have spent the last five weeks in the US on vacation. We've had good food, we've had bad food, and in this case, no food. We arrived about seven minutes late for our reservation at 21:30, which happens when you use uber in New York. We were told to take a seat in the bar while we waited for our table to be ready. At 22:00 we were getting pretty annoyed at waiting, so we asked if our table was ready soon. We were told that the guests at the table were just paying their bill, and we would be seated in a few minutes. Twenty minutes later nothing had happened, and at least 15 guests had left the restaurant. We were never offered to look at a menu, order a drink, or, as would have be nice given the situation, given a drink on the house. At this time we were understandably agitated, and we asked several members of staff why we weren't seated yet. At that time, the man who seemed to run the place (a petite, bearded man in a blazer) gave us quite a lecture on "common decency" all though he seemed to lack this himself. He then proceeded to seat us at a table that had been ready for at least half an hour and gave us our menus along with rude and sarcastic comments. We then decided to leave the restaurant, with the owner/manager following us. As we went out the door he stood in the doorway like a tiny thug with a smirk on his face, telling me to "enjoy my eleven o clock dinner" somewhere else. The food looked decent on their website, I'll give them that. We quite enjoyed our "eleven o clock dinner" at the restaurant across the street, a Japanese restaurant called Bessou. I would highly recommend any offended guests at Saxon and Parole to take their business across the street to these genuinely nice and talented people. Shame on you

    One of the best nights we've had in 🇺🇸 !! Good cocktail selection, not exhaustive. We had the crab and asparagus appetiser to start with - perfect amount to share between 2/3 people. Asparagus perfectly cooked! I then had the grilled Berkshire pork chop which was around an inch thick! It was amazingly juicy and a great portion size. Was served with soft polenta and pickled plums which was the perfect combo I would never have thought of. Desert - WOW! Goats cheesecake with strawberries and balsamic. Try it! Would defo recommend and return again!

    This place is wonderful great decoration, great ambience, great staff. We had this incredible cheese and meat platter to share to start with toasted bread which was really good. I had the impossible burger which was so good and my boyfriend had the saxon burger which was lovely. Having been to salvation burger earlier this week my recommendation would be to forget them and come here instead....much better in everyway.

    As an Aussie from a state which grows amazing oysters I was curious about the famous New York version. Helpful waiter suggested a nice wine and organised a platter with 2 x 6 varieties from around the USA plus the Fried oyster plate. the impossible burger would be worth a visit for any veg/vegan. I'm neither and enjoyed it.

    Wondering around for a great pub to stop into and found this place and man did we love it. Just a great looking venue, really tasty food and the drinks were the best we had in NYC. Bartenders here were great people and very helpful with suggestions. The atmosphere of the place is great, the downstairs private room looked very cool. Really though its just a great urban pub type place with phenomenal service and great food and drinks.

    "Impossible Burger" on the menu, great marketing or mouth-watering dish?! I saw its photo for the first time, a perfect medium rare cutlet with blood. Why impossible? Because it's vegan. Invented by Impossible Foods, a start up of Silicon Valley, 5 years of work and billions of investments. As a result, they created a product that meets all the characteristics of real meat! Just consists of wheat, potatoes, coconut oil and hemoglobin found in the roots of soy. Burger looked so meatty that after many years with no beef it was scary: a similar smell, fiber, juice and "blood." Interesting full of umami taste with a light scent of charcoal! Taste if not completely like meat, but 85% accurate.

    Off the beaten track. Good service and interestingly appetizers. Try the fig with chorizo. Lots of marrow. When did that become a thing? Marrow bearnaise didn't do it for me. Their 40 oz "aged" rib eye special was tough. If you want a good steak go to a steak house. Other dishes looked better. Try the duck. The veggie burger was great. Nice wine list and Armagnac.

    As a part time veggie had to go here to try the Impossible burger. It's the best veggie burger I have ever tasted, scrummy, meaty, oozy and great texture. The fries were fab too. We were lucky enough to pick a super warm evening and sat outside which was fun if you like to people watch as I do. Service was friendly and fun. Definitely go here to try the impossible burger!

    I was impressed by the atmosphere, food and drinks at this pleasant spot on the Bowery and left feeling very contented. The restaurant has a great bar that is very conducive to a few pre-dinner drinks. The menu was one of those from which I could happily have ordered just about everything and the food did not disappoint. I had the crispy duck with sides of shishito peppers and crispy chili brussel sprouts, all of which was delicious. The smoky smores dessert was also excellent. The only negative was the food service, which was disjointed and slow. Other than that, a very positive experience.

    The atmosphere is great at this restaurant, it's a farm to table vibe meets prohibition style cocktail bar. Service was horrendously slow, took 3 hours for dinner which consisted of 2 courses, we opted not to have dessert because we didn't want to wait another hour. Everyone in our party agreed the food was average but nothing special. Two people had steak which both were overcooked and bland. They fancy themselves as connoisseurs of oysters which we quickly found out they are not. I had high hopes for this place after walking in and seeing the cool atmosphere but staff was less than friendly, service was painfully slow and cocktails were not some of the best I've ever had either. Plenty of better choices in this area to choose from.

    We enjoyed a pleasant Sunday brunch here. Nice diverse set of food choices. Everyone was happy and full! Service was earnest and well intended, but we had at least 5 different people bring food items, so there was a bit of disjointedness.

    The manager of the restaurant said he wanted my "feedback," so here goes: Eat somewhere else. Chilling red wine is, to my mind, a criminal offense. Chilling is perfect for White Wine, but with red, it destroys the flavor by buttoning it up. So they chill their red wine, they don't like using salt (which, from a health standpoint is commendable, but for steak and fries -- Sorry, but I like both slightly seasoned). Oh, and the French Fries were cold. Just like the red wine. The waiter did his best to make it all seem to be my fault. Fine. Won't be back. Beautiful decor, though.

    The place is very nice but the service is really bad and the food is nothing special. We wanted to try the veggie burger and that is good but overall the food is super heavy - you feel it on your stomach for hours. Cocktails are good but the barman is so impolite that it's better choosing another place.

    This is a great place for drinks or a meal. It has a very good energy to it and the food and service is great. The drinks too are very innovative though a tad on the expensive side.

    Lovely hip place. It was a little busy when we got there but that is normal for NYC. Good food. Great and very helpful staff.
