Great pub if you want to be in a bar that likely hasn't redecorated since it's inception, which is quite old. It's a popular bar for locals and tourists flock to it as well. Great bloody Mary's, fun bartender, and the food looked good, burgers rumored to be worthy - however we were there for drinks.

We visited on the recommendation of friends and were not disappointed. The decor is 1950's New York without modernisation, which makes for an authentic experience. The food is fantastic - I particularly enjoyed the French toast and the service is excellent. I would definitely recommend for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just drinks. An all rounder! I

If you're in Soho, definitely stop in at Fanelli's. It's been around forever and is a great chance to have a real pub experience. Food is reasonably priced, brought out fast, and is good across the board. Most popular dishes seem to be burgers, grilled chicken salads, and chili (this is what I have). It's always bustling; the front room... More

Stopped in thinking this was a simple cafe but to our surprise it was a bar with about ten small tables as well. Fairly extensive menu for a small place. Bartender was friendly. Neat place to visit

This is a great old fashioned pub, can't agree with one reviewer, the bar staff were friendly and chatty, this really is a bar from way back and a pleasure in comparison with some bars of today.

We went there with a couple of friends and we have never felt so disrespected. First, the waitress yelled at us to keep quiet. Then the bartender gave us a shout to stop talking because they was watching the debate on TV and called us "kids". C'mon, it was supposed to be a bar! We were there having some beers,... More

Popped in for a quick lunch. Good food and friendly service. The steak sandwich and fries was tasty and well cooked.

The place looks "rétro", the red and white napkins give an old-fashioned "cachet" but the range of food is large and really well done ! I just had a steak/frites, but that meat was really tasty. Neighbourhood is Soho, so a lot of shopping opportunities :-)

Located in a key area for shoppers, locals and visitors, FC presents an antique deco, with a setting that remembres an Irish/English bar. Menu, drinks: excellent fast and not so fast food: from chicken fingers and fries and fish and chips to grilled salmon or pasta. Flavor, fresh ingredients and a very good level of service and attention to detail... More

Staying in SoHo

Neighbourhood Profile
Once the artistic hub of New York City, SoHo (South of Houston) is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway teems with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore by foot. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district –majestic cast-iron architecture everywhere you look. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city. The pretty streets of Nolita (North of Little Italy) offer a more sedate vibe, with plenty of tiny boutiques and hip restaurants to seek out.
