In Bryant park the Southwest Porch restaurant is located at the west side. In the evening when it is getting darker the view on the buildings is nice. We had a dinner there and it was good. Nice people serving.

It is a great way to slow down and relax in the middle of the city. People watching is a great diversion. The food was better than average and the wine-by-the-glass menu was better than average. The café reminds one of Paris.

Food and drinks were good and reasonable value. Location excellent. Good to be outside. BUT, Not enough staff which led to slow service and having to chase wait staff up for drinks and bills etc.

From the many food choices at Bryant Park we choose Southwest Porch. The burger was the advertised 1/2 pound, wonderfully flavoured and served on a freshly made bun. The only drawback was they only served decaf finance coffee. Service was prompt and courteous.

Can't beat the venue in Bryant Park. The food comes in styrofoam with plastic utensils and the wait staff is about what you would expect - slow because they are over worked and understaffed. But the white bean salad was as good as any we...More
