West Bank Cafe

The West Bank Cafe has been serving exceptional American Fare and an award winning wine list to our neighbors and NYC visitors for over 35 years. The sophisticated, yet relaxed ambiance is enhanced by our special connection to New York's theater community, making it the perfect destination for a before or after-show meal. Our comfortable interior includes the Laurie Beechman Theatre, a 100-seat performance and private party space underneath the restaurant. We hope to see you soon!.

"It was our first time dining at The West Bank Cafe. We really enjoyed the experience. The location is great for theaters on 42nd Street. The atmosphere was lively and the staff very attentive and personable. Our food was delicious. Wish we could've stayed longer and lingered over coffee and dessert. G"

"If you want a nice glass of wine, this place will do. But if you want a nicely cooked medium rare hamburger, or fries that are crisp on the outside and tasty inside, go elsewhere. Only one corner of the burger was medium rare (how do you do that?) and the fries wererubbery, oily and nearly inedible."

"The artichoke appetizer, though good, was very small and therefore overpriced. The shrimp pasta dish left an extremely unpleasant fishy taste in my mouth. My son's steak was flavorless except for the overwhelming char taste. It was a very disappointing meal."

"Have been to West Bank many times and always find it consistently good. It is great if you're going to the theater-they know how to get you out without feeling rushed. It's been around a long time & hopefully will remain for years to come!"

"The service was lovely in particular and while I have enjoyed the food a bit more sometimes (the shoe string fries that I stole off my husband's plate were "too" crispy and the appetizers we selected were too bar foody-ish) I am happy at this restaurant due to its ambience ( and our entrees overall were good!)"

"Always a pleasure to dine here. Best place in the neighborhood for a business lunch and the caesar salad is consistently delicious!"

"A great location before / after a Broadway show. The food was awesome and very unique. A limited menu, focused on what they do well. Our server claimed that they have a best burger in town. I didn't try the burger, but rather had the crab cakes and poached eggs. Crab cakes aren't a regular menu item at home in Minnesota and I was not disappointed by my choice at West Bank. I loved my blood orange Mimosa. Also, very moderately priced."

"This was not my first time eating at the West Bank Cafe. I arrived earlier than my friend and was seated immediately, which was much appreciated. The waiter however poured water for two people when only one was in attendance, without asking first. I thought that was odd. I ordered a cocktail and them my friend arrived. We then ordered our dinner and a glass of wine for each of us. As we were finishing our meal, the waiter informed us that the restaurant was offering everyone a free glass of (I forgot what it was specifically...a wine or a champagne) to celebrate their re-opening, and would we like it. I asked why we weren't informed of this when we sat down? I was headed to the theatre and did not want to drink more than one glass of wine. My friend and I were both annoyed that we ordered wine without being given this option. The overall service was okay, not great."
