This was an excellent restaurant with Jazz entertainment. Still have found nothing like it or that comes close to it. The Darby band was excellent, the food was excellent. Hoping for something like it soon!

What a great restaurant. I'm very sad this has shut down. The food, service and entertainment was top notch!! Hoping something else comparable to it opens up!

We had booked the Darby as one of the restaurants we had chosen in advance for our first trip to NY and had walked from our hotel to build up an appetite. We arrived to find the doors locked and no one answering the front...More

I went expecting the best, after all this is Alex Guarnacelli's new place. The restaurant is nicely set up with the stage off to the right; small but provides that intimate feel when a jazz band is playing. Here's the challenge the seating is also...More

I had the priviledge of being invited to the Darby to hear my friend play with the band. Upon first arrival you have no idea what the Darby has in store for you. The outside is not the fancy. Once I walked in I was...More

Food was amazing - facility was fun. Try the barrata!!! Downstairs club was overrated, but if I were 25 , I'd have likely loved it.

We had an enjoyable evening at The Darby. We had booked a table in advance, and had no problem being seated right away (on a Saturday). We were not rushed at all; in fact, we stayed for a good 2 1/2 hours; enjoyed the music...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
