Service was excellent. I loved that they has Gruner on their wine list. I've never seen it at any other restaurant.

The best part for me was the quiet! It will be my go to place when I am in that neighborhood for that very reason.

We were comfortably seated in the back away from the bar. My husband had a burger and I had the chicken tacos. We also ordered the fried mozzarella balls and pretzel bites and it was WAY TOO MUCH FOOD! Loved everything about the experience.

This was my first time here and I was shocked about the inside. There were very few regular tables. It looked more like a lounge than a restaurant & there was hardly anyone there. But, my burger was great and the onion rings were good. Our waitress was really attentive and nice so it was a good meal. I was just surprised by how it looked more like a lounge than a restaurant. We were there for lunch so maybe it comes alive & fills up during the evening hours.

Our waiter/host Adam was the hilarious! He kept us laughing all evening and provided outstanding service. Food was excellent, good selection of drinks and a very
generous pour on the whiskey. Couldn’t have found a better place. They even pulled together several tables to accommodate our 10 person last minute group.

We loved this place. One night was a walk in and another we’d booked. Both times we received a warm welcome. The food, service, drinks and atmosphere was fabulous. We’ll definitely go back if/when we return to New York!

Great place for a meet prior to show at City Center - good wine list and choices of appetizers. Had a reservation and glad we did! Seated at a high top - perfect!

My wife enjoyed our visit on Saturday so much that we delayed our ride home on Sunday for an encore. We will be here every time we’re in NYC. Out of 5 stars - we give them a 6 driven by top notch staff.

We went to Faces and Names before a Sunday matinee. The interior is welcoming and warm. We sat at a table near the fireplace (was not lit as it gets too hot). Nice and quiet - allowed us to have a conversation. Food was good. Simple pub food but good. Our server Jane was charming. Nice choice for a bite and drink before of after the theater.

This was at lunch and almost empty in back. We just needed a few hours to connect after several months and this was a perfect location across from the Hilton. Food was very good.

We needed pre-show dining. Wait staff was attentive and efficient. We got salads, which we both enjoyed, and very nice wine. Cost was quite reasonable. We will definitely come back.

Every time I take people there we get the best service in town. They give us plenty of time to select items and to linger over coffee. The staff never is in the way; they seem to know what we are going to do before we do it and are ready for us. This restaurant is the best secret in Midtown

Food was good, service was a little slow (considering restaurant was fairly empty) but otherwise fine. Convenient for pre-theater dinner.

As a lounge it may be ok. For a dining experience, not so much. Small pour wine portions are always annoying. Food was mediocre at best. Maybe a place for a quick cocktail, but not to hang.

The food was tasty and service was friendly. There was a lot of seating available too, which was nice. Their cocktail list was pretty small, but they made up for it with their beers and list of top-shelf liquors.

I love one sandwich and the ambience at Faces and Names, but I swear, I'm going to start ordering what I DON'T want because I think I'll have a better chance of having what I do want come out of the kitchen. This place has never, not once, not screwed up my order. This time, chose salad option instead of fries and fries came out. The wait staff is surly and they don't know their own menu. Me: no cheese on that please. Waitress: it doesn't come with chess. Me: we it say mozzarella on the menu so can you please make sure it doesn't have it. I'm not entirely sure why I keep going back. Once they do get the mushroom sandwich order right, it's really good. Super loud this time around tho. You couldn't hear anything but yelling.
