The Whitby Bar and Restaurant
Reservations made on Opentable are for a la carte dining or Afternoon Tea. If you would like to join us for cocktails and bar snacks, the lounge area is open seating only. If you have a cocktail reception inquiry for more than 8 guests, please call the hotel directly.
Have returned to this restaurant over and over again and will continue to do so.
I love the Whitby for the decor. I ordered the butternut squash soup which was delicious but more surprising was the eggplant main dish. I'm not a vegetarian but I was just in the mood for it and it was incredibly tasty with great hints of crunchy onions. I would give it a 5 stars lunch!
Horrid coffee which I told them about. Beside that, I wanted to never leave!! Gorgeous space , very good food. Lovely
The Whitby Bar and Restaurant is a beautifully decorated warm space with natural wood floors and the usual Kit Kemp decorating - layers of fabrics, beautiful art and artifacts. I was excited to dine at The Whitby because I am a huge fan of Kemp's London hotels and restaurants. Unfortunately, the service was a bit flat and the prices are stratospheric. The bar was super lively (we dined in the dining room behind the bar) and I will go back for tea. The dinner is a mix of comfort food and yummy small plates - just WAY too expensive for what it is, sorry to say.
Just too expensive, alas
the ultimate in chic, modern, comfortable & cool in an afternoon tea experience!!!
Very pricey, though it's a pricey part of NYC. Food is nice, but not exceptional. Service is also very nice.
This was our first time visiting this restaurant. We went for high tea and it was fabulous. A bit pricey but worth the money spent. From the moment you walked into the restaurant, were seated and placed your order, everyone was so pleasant. I recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a nice get together, with family and friends enjoying good food, pleasant atmosphere and a leisurely meal
We had a great experience!
We were greeted by very warm and welcoming hosts. We had a lovely table where we could hear the music and enjoy the lovely front room atmosphere. I enjoyed it so much I’m coming back tonight. I hope I’ll be able to enjoy the front room again. (The band that played was very good.)
Wonderful setting for tea! Service couldn’t have been better.
Amazing ambiance, food and service. Lovely live jazz music.
Bad night, or not what it used to be? Don’t know, but this place used to be impeccable but something has certainly changed, not for the better. Too bad.
Beautiful atmosphere with modern eclectic Devore. I took my wife for her birthday and they treated us very nicely. Even dressing up my gift on a desert tray. Nice portions as well
Nice ambience. Beautiful china. Attentive server but when he went to his break nobody checked on us anymore.
The sweets were not very good. A pumpkin pie in December? Left overs?
Sandwiches were good, scones very good.
fabulous decor and food
Our server was nice and attentive one on one , but no one was watching the room. We constantly had to flag down staff in order to get additional service for items like more water, another glass of wine etc
A perfect spot for a lovely breakfast.
The day before, I had breakfast at a highly rated and more expensive venue, the air was stale, the orange juice was canned, the coffee was weak, the scrambled eggs were cold and inedible, and there was a very limited selection on the buffet, no fruit, no oatmeal, just some old scrambled eggs, greasy sausages and cold, limp, saturated french toast.
The Whitby, on the other hand, was wonderful. I couldn't suggest an improvement, although I think they might want to charge higher prices given the excellence.
One of our favorite dining and hotel destinations!
Service was horrible. The area we sat in wasn’t even busy but it seemed like the waiter could care less about serving us. We sat for an hour before getting our food, after an hour we let him know we had a show to get to. Food was served cold shortly after we let them know.
Rare to find a gem of a restaurant with an invitingly unique decor, that doesn’t make you feel you are local.
Well presented dishes with flavors that make the experience memorable.
We will definitely go back, thanks for making my anniversary special...thoughtful touch on the dessert - appreciated.
Staff was nice, the ambiance was great! Had mimosas but others had food and it looked good!
This place has really funky decor that somehow works. The service was very good and we liked our meals there. It is located inside a hotel.
Everything was lovely, although the service was noticeably slow during the first 30 minutes. Perhaps the restaurant was unusually busy, or perhaps they were having an off night. But once things got into gear, it was flawless. I'd return in a flash.
Didn’t acknowledge the birthday special occasion
Great food, superb ambiance. Service was a bit slow and cocktails were a bit overpriced. But otherwise, I would highly recommend it.
Quiet Sunday evening in a delightful dining room. Service was forgettable largely because our (vegetarian) waitress forgot all about us, having first delivered a treatise on all the good vegetable dishes on the menu.
Excellent!! Wonderful Staff, Beautiful Experience. Food is Devine!
Hunter is always the best but ordering bar food we received 15-20 minutes later. What’s going on? Usually everything is great.
Excellent service, excellent food, beautiful room, an overall A+++ experience. One of the most enjoyable Thanksgiving Days ever!
As returning guests, we had a positive experience at the restaurant, although the service was not up the the level we had experienced on previous occasions. The waiter was very inattentive and slow. We will return, however.
Beautiful room and wonderful food. Unfortunately my steak was overcooked but the manager sprung into action and was able to come up with my second choice entree within seconds. She and our server were very gracious and right on top of things. That's the true test of service -- when something goes wrong!
Experience was fantastic! We were at a table in the center of the room right where the servers pick up drinks and the computer is for checkout so it was a little less “atmosphere” than the other tables. Waiter was new but kind and attentive. Food was out of this world amazing!
Katy and the entire team go out of their way every time to make it special. Food and service excellent.
Great atmosphere and impeccable service. Wide variety of food choices. All delicious.
Always a good experience.
The service and the food were excellent.
Great meal and food. Everything was great
Drinks were not tasty, bar food was not hot, generally the wait staff was terrific
