This place is almost 5 starts but I took one away for a few reasons which I will touch on soon. First and foremost, the food and drinks (margaritas) are top notch. Myself and a few co-workers used go there every Friday for lunch. Never had a bad meal. Flavor on everything is a 10/10. They definitely do not pour... More

Good food and drinks (margaritas), but even upstairs, it is very difficult to talk because of the lack of sound dampening.

The reason for the rating was because of the food. It is amazing. They serve you chips and I had the enchiladas; which were amazing. The service is not top notch but average enough to get my order in , etc. The place was super full and the waiting time to sit down was less than 2 minutes but the... More

This was our third visit to NYC. We take the subway just to eat here! Spring - Fall you can eat outside and enjoy the liveliness of New York like a local. We have a family of five and have enjoyed a mix of everything on the menu and loved it all. The guac and chips are the best we... More

Stone Street so crowded we couldn't get through so entered back or maybe it's the front. 4 of us squeezed into the bar and downed 8 margaritas plus 2 bowls of guacamole mixture that was really good with the margaritas. We were there early and it just kept filling up more. Had to struggle getting both in and out on... More

I liked this place overall. Seemed mostly like a loud after work crowd. Sat in a deuce in the back (furthest away from the Pearl Street entrance). Apparently, Happy Hour only applies at the bar (which I think is really stupid since we were sitting 5ft from the bar!). Then I found out that the house margarita was $11. Seriously?... More

We spent half the weekend in the area staying at a nearby hotel and had food or drinks at half the places on the strip there and found Mad Dog and Beans to be one of the best places to grub and drink there. The atmosphere is nice, the food is good and the Tequila Menu is respectable. The salsa... More

The food, decor and service was second to none! I loved the little bowl of guacamole! Just tucked away in the heart of the stock exchange!

We tried this restaurant while we were on a 6-hour walking tour of NYC (recommended by our tour guide). My husband and I ordered the chicken tacos (3 each), and while they were tasty, there was very little chicken, and what was there consisted of tiny cut-up pieces. For the price ($28 for the 2 entrees), it just wasn't worth... More

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
