Strand Bistro at The Strand Hotel

Located in The Strand Hotel in the Fashion District, The Strand Bistro serves Seasonal Modern American Cuisine.

With a cozy and inviting lounge, a fireplace, and an enchanting fish tank (yes that's right a big fish tank!) the interior is quirky yet comfortable. There is a place to lounge, place to wine and place to dine, and after dinner you can have a cocktail at our relaxing roof top lounge at The Top of the Strand with stunning views of The Empire State Building.

"This past week a group of us gathered for dinner at the Strand Bistro before going to the Boccelli concert at Madison Square Garden. The food was great , the staff was polite and very friendly and the atmosphere there was very relaxing. We started off with
amazingly terrific Appetizers , to include Brussells sprouts ,mushrooms and tuna tartar . Our main course of steaks and lamb chops couldn't be better. Afterwards we ventured up to the bar for cocktails and the scene there was lots of fun.

"We recently went to a show at MSG and wanted somewhere to eat nearby, but different than our usual. The Strand had great reviews, so I took a chance. We were sat fairly quickly, but service was sketchy. The hostess also took our drink order, gave us menus, served the drinks, and then a waiter sort of took over. It was impossible to figure out who was supposed to actually be our server. It took forever to get our second drink; we were just about done when it came. The menu was limited. Portions were small. Everything was overpriced. Just because the menu is artsy and cutesy doesn't justify the prices-$21 for soup?! The soup was good, not great. We decided to split the soup and each get a salad, not only because it was pricey, but the whole process was taking too long.
This would be a good place to meet for a drink, maybe, or a light bite, if you don't mind overpaying. I will stick with my usual restaurant before an MSG event in the future, lesson learned.

"This restaurant is a breath of fresh air in this neighborhood, which really lacks places that are fit for business lunches. I personally like the strand because the service is always consistently good, the decor is beautiful, the seating is spacious, and the food is good. The reason I didn't give it five stars is there is always room to improve, and the recent summer menu really lacked options outside of a lot of sandwiches, in comparison to their prior menus. I'm not a sandwich person, so not really a fan if this change."

"We had a delicious lunch. The chicken breast on my salad was perfectly cooked and tender. My husband's wild mushrooms sandwich was amazing.
After eating our lunch outside in 90 degree weather, we asked to go inside to finish our drinks and the restaurant inside was beautiful.

"The ambiance is great. It is also lovely place. The service folks are great but not that attentive. The food is standard...and it feels little empty. Lots of bread and not much in it. So its presentation is good but the food has changed since it opened. Not much selection."

"sloppily dressed unprofessional hostess and disappearing and forgetful waiter detracted from the delicious food (albeit the portions were underwhelming) and the pretty surroundings."

"We went for date night and had an amazing time! We originally just wanted to go to the roof deck for drinks and then I made a reservation for dinner. Not only was the food amazing but we had the best service! Our appetizers took a little long but we did not notice until the Manager came over and apologized. We would never have noticed because we were having a great time! The manager brought us champagne and dessert to top off our meal. They then brought us up to the roof top and made sure we had a great time. This will definitely be our special occasion date night spot!!!"

"You must try the food here. The presentation is also fabulous. Even simple egg whites were the best I have ever eaten. Raves from everyone at my table."

"The food was pretty good -- the presentation was much more exciting than the actual flavor palette. Quiet, luxurious seating. The service was SSSSLLLLLLOOOOOWWW. With only a few other tables occupied we waited over a half hour for a bowl of soup and a salad. It was lunch time and we were trying to finish quickly so that was a major disappointment. We scarfed down the food too quickly to actually enjoy it!"

"Gorgeous space, very noisy. Unnecessary 'nightclub' vibe with a DJ inflicting pounding beats at what could otherwise be a pleasant sophisticated bar."

"Awesome experience. Great quiet lunch place. Chocolate dessert was super deciduous. Green salad with lemon vinaigrette was great. Had my family with me and all ages were satisfied. Planning to go again this week now for dinner."
