The food came 5 minutes after we ordered it. Sangria didn't have any fruits in it! After we eat and paid the bill we were nicely asked to leave the place because the policy doesn't allow its guests to stay by the table after the meal is gone and the bill is paid. If you don't want to be kicked out better avoid this place.

I usually would never go out of my way to write a review for a restaurant; but after going to Whym, I had to share my experience with those looking for an excellent balance between delicious food, stunning ambience, excellent customer service, and decent prices. First off, our server for the evening was this chap named Jimmy. Jimmy welcomes you and guides you through the dinner quite brilliantly in his own way e.g. striking up small conversations from time to time, casually offering his own take on menu items, and giving the customer space while maintaining a connection with said customer. As for the food, I started with the calamari appetizer which featured crisp, fried calamari served with a sweet chili sauce. I then moved on to the sirloin burger with a side of their fabulous mac and cheese. I barely had enough room to fit it all, but the wonderful textures, aromas, and richness pushed me to forge on. I have to say I was extremely pleased by this dinner, and it only came to around $30 with a few modifications. I will certainly be eating here more often. And thanks to Jimmy et co, it will hold a special place in my heart.

Went to Whym for pre theater dinner the other night and forgot to make a reservation. The restaurant was very busy and the manager Anthony was very welcoming and found us a table after a quick coctail at the bar.\r
We have been to Whym before but never wrote a review.\r
The food is fantastic and reasonably priced. Had 3 of their new Buddha's Hand Cocktails...incredable!\r
Do not go without having the smore'swich...make sure you share it. Love, love, love Whym and its staff.

I went to Whym with my girlfriends and we had a fabulous experience! The service was AMAZING and the people surprisingly nicer than most restaurants. All of our entrees were super delicious and I can't wait to go back and try more. Really the only negative I guess would be that it was a little crowded but then again we went on a Friday night. The host was extremely nice and accomodating so we did not mind waiting a couple of minutes. Definitely would recommend my friends to check it out.

Whym is one of my favorite restaurants in the City! My friends and I had a wonderful dinner there just the other night, and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone I know. I have started ordering delivery from Whym to my office, and all my colleagues keep stealing my delivery menu. Please check it out if you have not done so already!!

my office is nearby, so i order nearly eveyday. please someone, suggest something else!! the food is OK, but the prices are expensive. after taxes and tip, a lunch salad is nearly $20. and then they have the nerve to ask if i'd like utensils. uhm, yes, for $20, i'd like a fork please. today i requested a knife and i still only get a fork. when i substitue a salad (which is ONLY greens) in place of chips with a sandwhich, they charge an extra $2, but when i request a salad with NO chicken, they deduct absolutely nothing. when asked about the descrepansy, they say salad greens ABSOLUTELY cost more than potato chips. (on what planet??) and that they have no power to minus charges. a nice thank you for spending perhaps $400 a month there. like a said, can somone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE suggest another place nearby??

I don't typically write reviews, but when I came home the other night from Wyhm, I swore I would, do to the exceptional expereince I had on Monday night. The decor is beautiful, modern and sleek without being too stuffy. The food was excellent! I had the duck and it was to die for (medium rare). The server made the expereince by far. He was very well spoken, smiling, perfect with timing and service cues, and an overall charming person. The back waiter and bus person were also very nice throughout he meal.\r
\r
I hear this place goes nuts on Thursdays - Saturdays, but I went on Monday and it was perfect. So, if you are looking to impress a date, take a work collegue, or take the folks out to a cool, swanky mid-town spot, skip the dirty Bowery / LES area and head to 59th street to Whym! Love it!

Pros: intimate, sleek and modern feel, cool, great food, service

Cons: party's of 8 or more would probably have to sit on the sidewalk

What a wonderful place. I went here not knowing what to expect, but always curious . I loved the decor. Very romantic. Excellent service. Every course was delicious. The most memorable part was the dessert. I had the warm chocolate cake - AMAZING. I still talk about that dessert. I have been to several ""fine dining"" restaurants in this city, and thus far this one is my favorite.

why am i even writing a review for this place? Everyone knows the Whym is sexcellent and glorious all at the same time! I went for the first time for my birthday dinner and although the wait for our appetizer was long, I had good people and good conversation to sustain me. They also sent out some complimentary amuse bouches to tide our hunger. Our server was excellent and knowledgeable. I have nothing bad to say about the place and would go back again in a heartbeat!!!

Last night, my fiance and I decided to host an intimate dinner between us and our closest friends to celebrate our recent engagement. We had a 9:00pm appointment for 11 people. We arrived before 9 and were seated at 9:20 pm. I politely told the maitre d' that we were all very hungry and would like to sit and enjoy our dinner quickly because we had somewhere to go afterwards. We received our entrees at 10:30pm. We had to wait 1 hour and 10 minutes for our food. That is just ridiculous. Luckily the food was incredible. However, we ended up being late for our own after dinner engagement party... \r
\r
So in short, great food, slow service, planning an event here is probably not the best idea...

Have been here a few times, when it's been busy and quiet. At all times the staff are friendly and accommodating. The food has always been good with some creativity and interesting items-and worth the moderate price. Always have had an enjoyable eating experience, something I find hard to say about most restuarants.

Not only is Whym an upscale restaurant, but the food is absolutely delicious. The drinks were delicious. The service was fast and friendly. The decor was modern, yet relaxing. We didn't have a reservation but the host was very nice about it had had us seated almost immidiately. The person I was with had a steak and he said it was totally delicious, one of the best he had ever had.

Been here twice. The service was the highlight both times. Very friendly, attentive waiters. The food is good, but very forgettable. The crowd both times was nauseatingly yuppy.

I went on a lark because it was listed on Rewards Network. What a bonus! The food was innovative and comforting, the portions were huge and I think everyone in my party was raving. We can't wait to go back!

I hardly venture to Midtown West for dinner except when I have tickets to Jazz at Lincoln Center. The host was gracious when I mentioned that we needed to be done by 7:30 and we were done without rushing or missing a beat. We had great drinks, amazing food, and excellent service considering how packed it was. But more about the food, I did not build up my expectations but I was blown away by the food. The menus descriptions were enticing and the food did not disappoint. The calamari is worth a trip back and my boyfriend said he has to go back for the meatloaf again and again even though he thought my chicken was great too. There were great combinations of all the food groups in one dish and nothing seemed over the top or an afterthought. Bravo!

This was our first visit to Whym and initially we were quite impressed. Despite being out and about at peak time for brunch on Sunday without a reservation, four of us popped in and were seated very quickly. The decor was pleasant and the menu had a number of good choices. The food arrived promptly and was very good; not the best brunch I've had in NYC but definitely above average.\r
\r
The service is where it all came unstuck, however. Despite being initially pleasant. staff were fairly hard-sell, trying to push sides with the brunch and desserts after the meal. The thing that really ruined it though was at the end of the meal, after we'd paid the check and were sitting chatting. The host staff approached and simply handed us our coats. Not another word was spoken... not a ""terribly sorry, but we're really busy and have people waiting, would you mind..."", nothing. We were essentially just ejected. Whym is definitely on the more upscale side and frankly I do not expect this standard of service from this sort of establishment. We enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere, but will not be going back because of this.

On a Friday night... with a group of 8, I headed into this pottery barn/modern decorated hells kitchen establishment. The hostess and our waitress were pleasant and seated us immediately (reservations recommended for large groups). The restaurant quickly filled up as the night continued. Without much expectations, we dove into a variety of apps and entrees... the food was surprisingly well cooked, flavorful and yummy. The calamari was cooked to crisp perfection accompanied by a nice spicy sauce, the tuna tartar was okay and the potstickers were satisfying. I had the Blackened Mahi Mahi and it was well cooked, fragrant, with a tangy twist. All in all, a cool mid sized restaurant with attentive service and yummy food.

I visited with a party of 4 and made a reservation, per all the reviews. *Definitely make reservations. We ate at 530P and it was pretty empty, but within an hour the place was packed. It's not that big and if you arenot in a booth the tables are pretty tight. Get a booth! Friendly wait staff with good timing. Great wine list, I had the sangria (it was tasty). We all enjoyed our meals, some highlights were the butternut squash soup and calamari. I had the Chicken Pie, very tasty (big and filling). For dessert the Smorwich was so yummy (I would recommend spliting this, because it's rich). Plus the Peanut Butter treat in a martini glas was great as well. Overall a wonderful dining experience. I don't think this place was too loud either, barely noticed other patrons. It is a bit pricey, but good value.

I was in NYC last weekend and staying at the Hudson---a friend and I were ready for dinner and we walked toward ninth avenue and found the Whym logo mystifying enough to draw us to at least glance at the menu. We sat down and I have to say this was probably one of the top 5 meals I've had at a NYC restaurant and I used to live in Manhattan. We started with an off-the-menu special appetizer: Yellow fin tempura with mashed sweet potoato and a light sauce. I thought it was light and tasty and the sweet potato worked very well...my friend enjoyed it as well. A couple friends of mine sat next to us a few minutes later and I told them to get the same appetizer but the waitress told me we ended up ordering the last one! \r
\r
My main dish was the pork chop, which was complimented by the waitress. I can see why after I saw it. I usually don't like ordering pork chops at restaurants because they usually end up coming out dry and tough and the sauce isn't anything different than I could get from a home-cooked meal. Well, Whym did a great job with this pork chop. It was a big portion and precut for me, soft and moist. The chop sat on a bed of quinona and some grilled mini zuchinni and other veggies with a light barbecue sauce. I'm love bbq sauce but I'm glad this one was light because it enhanced the pork's taste instead of covering it up with something sugary. I've never had quinona but I became a huge fan after that night--all the dish's components worked out well and tasted great. Next time I'm in the city, I'll make an effort to go back to Whym...maybe take a date too.

I often dine around Hell's Kitchen and you really need to know where to go for tasty food which isn't just okay. Whym's one of those places which is slightly North of the main restaurant stretch on Ninth. I thought the service was average, but found the food delicious. Three of us shared the duck spring rolls which were created with an interesting mix of ingredients which worked. I had the duck special, my friends ordered the NY strip steak and lasagne. We all polished our plates clean and were happily satisfied with the perfectly cooked dishes. I might add that the entrees here are good sized portions too. Go - the food's good!

My friends and I went to Whym to celebrate my b-day. It was really a great night. Our waiter Matthew (his b-day was that day) was amazing, he was friendly, attentive and took the time to answer all of our questions even the silly ones (are the strawberrys cold?) ..lol. I was very impressed by the food, their crab ravioli is delicious, my steak was perfect and my friends were going nuts talking about how good the meatloaf was and the scalops...I cannot wait to go back and try something different. It was overall a great dining experience...except that when we left we kind of smelled like a restaurant..you know that smell that sticks to your clothes and hair..you guys know what I am talking about..and the hosts some gay guy was kind of annoying...lol..well he was doing his job making sure the entire party was there in order for us to sit down ..but once we were ready to sit he went on to say ""let me adjust the table"" and he went over and move a chair..lol....which we thought was hilarious...great place ...great food.\r
Ask for Matthew he is really the best waiter I ever had...:)

Oh Whym, how I love you so! I'm just sorry I've been so busy and stayed away for so long. Food notables are: calamari (the sauce!), baby arugula salad, meatloaf, chicken potpie, pork chop, grilled shrimp, and of course my personal fave, the duck breast. I especially love coming back for the consistently excellent/friendly/gracious service of the awesome Susan, Anthony & Jamie (the best bartender EVER!). The bf and I like to think of Whym as ""our"" restaurant because this was our first stop on our first date. And Susan, Anthony & Jamie were there to see us progress into coupledom during our many stops to Whym before/after all the operas/ballets. I will be back for my birthday dinner in a couple of weeks and I know it will be a memorable one. Thanks again guys! \r

Food's good old american with interesting global twists. My only complaint was that the lambshank did not taste like my mother's. Think they can do better on that one. Wasabi Tuna is just great! We were a party of seven and drank up their entire stock of Snowden Cab and moved on to Spanish Rioja called Ostatu. Definitely worth going back just for those two wines. We shared all kinds of Appetizers, so it was hard to choose just one favorite. So now on to service: I really have to say it was spectacular. I don't expect Per Se servers to wait on my table at Whym, but let me tell you...the best thing about the entire night was our service from the moment we stepped into the door to the moment we left. I wish I can remember the woman's name that served us and let me tell you, we were not the easiest bunch of people to please. Kudos to management of their staff, even down to their busboys and runners, Cause we will be back!

I have never written a review before, so here goes... I just love this place. I live practically right accross the street from Whym, probably makes me a little lazy, but honestly...I don't need to try anywhere else in the neigborhood. I have been to Whym three times in one week and I just have to write about the experience. Their Crab Ravioli I have had twice now and it is just the best thing ever. My husband just adores the Wasabi Pea Crusted Tuna and the Mahi dish with Pomegranate Molasses is so unique. They also make a killer drink with Pear Vodka, Pom juice and I forget the other ingredients, but two of us last Saturday had about 4 each. I really recommend it to anybody visiting or just in the neighborhood. Service is super friendly and it is just a fun, date place you will love too. Only downside really is that they don't have seats at their bar. But if you don't mind standing for a drink, try it!!\r
\r
ps: the ""smoreswich"" is just about the most fantastic dessert. Probably best you share that between two.

Whym came highly recommended to me by a friend. So I went in with large expectations and was let down by the food. One of our two appetizers was good (Crab ravioli) and the other was nothing special at all (Duck Spring Rolls). My fiance ordered the shrimp with brie/apple quesadilla and it was excellent. However my lamb shank which was recommended by the waitress was flat out terrible. So bad that I told the waitress that even with a ton of fresh pepper it was still lacking taste. The waitress quickly took it back and told me it would come off our bill. Later in dinner, the manager and then the hostess came over to apologize and said because they were so busy on Valentine's that the dish was overlooked and it would not happen again. They then gave us a desert on the house. Whym has a great staff and handled the situation as well as they could. The chocolate and peanut butter desert was to die for. Overall, its probably worth a second try...

Went here for a date on a friday night. The food was amazing and the service was even better. I was blown away with how attentive the wait staff was. As previous reviewers mentioned the calamari is some of the best i've ever had and the portion size was more than generous. We had the meatloaf and duck breast and it was on point. Looking at what other diners were having it all looked good.If you're looking for a place to take a date and to be waited on by some of the nicest staff Whym is a definite must try.

My boyfriend and I came here to celebrate Valentine's Day. We aren't fancy people, so we wanted to go somewhere small with decent food and a semi-casual atmosphere. Whym was recommended by a friend, and I am glad we listened! In honor of V-Day, there was a Prix Fixe Menu ($48/person). We didn?t order from there, but it was tempting. From the regular menu, I ordered the calamari (best I've ever had), Braised Lamb Shank (delicious and tender with saffron orzo), a side of Curried Onion Rings (like a delicious samosa, but in onion ring form), and the S'mores-wich dessert (rich and incredibly chocolatey). I also ordered a guava martini, which was delicious! My boyfriend ordered the spinach and onion tart (he said it was so good he would have eaten an entire pie-sized one), chipotle-spiked meatloaf (""wow, this rocks!!""), and the chocolate cake for dessert (which had a warm gooey center and a scoop of vanilla ice cream). As you can tell, we both loved our food, and overall the portions were big with beautiful presentations, and the prices were very reasonable (even the extensive wine list). The wait staff was also friendly and helpful. We saw a couple come in, but they couldn't be seated right away, and the hostess graciously recommended nearby restaurants they could try and even offered to call them to see if they had any availability. My only minor irritation was that they forgot our coffee at the end of the night, but they also didn't charge us for it, so no harm, no foul. We're already planning our next meal here!

The wife and I went on the advice of a friend who lives in the neighborhood. We had the calamari appetizer, steak and lamb shank. The food and service were great. Delicious food at a fair price. Would go again.

Will most definitely be back. Friendliest service this side of 9th avenue and wayyyy better than most restaurants in this neighborhood. Food is plenty and real tasty and the servers seem like a happy bunch. We had the most fantastic service from our server Hanna, we decided to come back on New Year's Eve and stayed with them in a packed restaurant until the stroke of 12. Fun!! Really!! My guy friends thought the Manager woman is a real hotty too! that ""flutters"" all over the place making sure everybody is happy and have what they need and did I mention the desserts!? Just go...you won't be disappointed. All round a great place.

This place is phenominal. I took my Mom here who is the pickiest eater in the world and she didn't leave a crumb on her plate (she didn't even want to let me try a bite of her food). She had the salmon and I had the duck breast - both were perfect. The duck was perfectly done and was served over wild mushroom polenta - heaven. Great service - great wine list - great ambiance. Also - have the lettuce wedge w/ blue cheese - yes its not original but they crumble real blue cheese on it and fresh bacon - yum yum yum. This place is a 1000 times better than Eatery - the atmoshere is completely different at Whym - where Eatery has more of a clean industrial look to it this place has leather chairs and warm lighting. Just go - you won't be disappointed.

I had such a good time at Whym last night, I just had to write about it. My husband and I live on the east side and visited Whym on our way to Carnegie Hall. We just stepped into a piece of Heaven. The food was great, our server Anthony was such a character and the chocolate cake is too die for! really! Fun winelist too. My husband a wine nut, loved the red selection. We will be back!\r

I visited Whym recently for Brunch with a few friends. Although I'm vegan, I usually find that I can get something from most restaurants, with a few alterations. Well, not at Whym. I asked for a veggie panini, seeing as they had panini sandwiches on the menu that already had veggies in them. This was met with a big ""We can't do that."" So, I had to take a second look at the menu. My next option was not possible either, and neither was my third. When I finally ordered the papaya with fruit, I was told they had no papaya, but I could get just the fruit. Seeing as I had no other option I agreed. The fruit was fine, but when I got my bill I noticed they charged me the same as if I had actually gotten the papaya with my fruit. Overall, the service was very unfriendly and the environment cold and uninviting, not to mention that customer service is not something they're concerned with. And, my friends agreed that the food was not spectacular. Definitely not going there again.

I have lived in the neighborhood for 10 years and this is by far the best place we've ever had! I am at Whym at least once a week. The food is beyond expectation! Scallops are a favorite...so is the tuna with edamame mash(must try!). The service is wonderful and there is always a warm welcome. OH! and they do delivery!!!!!!!!

Noise so deafening my ears rang upon leaving like I was at a rock concert. Food is expensive, $22 for four scallops and a mound of mashed potaoes mixed with turnips. Did I mention the mashed potaoes and turnips were awful. They squeezed 3 of us into a table made for 2 and my legs hurt and tingled throughout the meal due to lack o fblood circulation because we were squished. When I asked the wsitress"" what is the most popular dish"" , her useless cliche answer was ""everything is popular"". Ok, you deserve a 5% tip.

Whym is a nice little place to have lunch. The menu has some good selections. Salads are great! Sometimes there can be a 5-10 min wait cuz the place is small and it gets crowded but overall I think its a nice place. Staff is very good. I would recomment the Chopped Salads, or Chicken Pannini

We went there for brunch and couldn't have been more disappointed. We were seated promptly, the Bloody Mary's were great, but the basic omlette (base price $9?for egg only) and $1.50 for each extra was too much. Extra Virgin or Tartine don't even have the gall to do that. The food was very boring no excitement. It was as if the chef through the menu together on a ""Whym""... pun intended. Overall, a bad choice.\r

Whym is trying too hard to be a hip relative to its sister restaurant which is Eatery. Overpriced for what you actually get. Calamari was overcooked and Striped Bass wasn't worth over $22. Walk the 5 blks to Eatery.

The food was awesome, the service was spectacular, and the atmosphere welcoming. We had the duck apetizer, and the ravioli, and then I had the mahi mahi fish, everything was a mix of african/asian/latin/french and so so so so delicious. the sauces they use are amazing. \r
we had Denise serve us, and I remember her name cause she really made the whole experience better by carefully attending the table. the only let down was that my kir did not come with cdc. i recommend everyone to try it, and make sure you get the duck apetizer.

I am a little confused about a couple of reviews here, so I felt I had to write in....The food was delicious and flavorful. The service was incredible, which is difficult to find in the city. The presentation of the food was exciting and visually appealing. The decor was beautiful. I will be back many, many times. I am dying to try brunch. I loved Whym....and I will be certain to try it again. I didn't like having to stand at the bar, but then again, if there had been seats, none would have been available, since the locals seem to have found the place and are coming in droves. I realize that nobody is perfect, but those of you who found the place not to your liking might consider giving it another chance. Maybe, as most of us, they had a bad night, or maybe they were just getting their ""sea legs"" for the place, since they just recently opened. I've been in the restauant business for many years, and know that chefs, owners, and managers will read the comments here, and make some ""tweaks"" to the menu or service and are receptive to others' opinions....I loved Whym, and will see them again soon!!! OH!! I almost forgot....I live in the neighborhood, and found the delivery to be great!! Nice packaging! I received my food without getting sauces running in the bag and squished containers! Just give them my phone number, and BAM!!...my name and address are there on file!! I am truly a NYC guy loving the convenience of that!!!

Now I live in the neighborhood, occasionally hitting Eatery and the like from brunch, and was looking for something specific last night while working: I wanted good food, wine, a nice clean and modern space and found it all at Whym. Greeted by the beautiful Suzann the dining experience shared by my friend and I couldn't have gone better. The chipotle meatloaf, cheddar mash and spinach was fabulous, the ravioli too, everything looked good and everyone around seemed to be having a rare time. Everything was ideal, although my attention was pulled away from my conversation by the greeter prowling seductively in front of the bar, letting her hair down etc and being genuinely ravishing. I will go back for sure.

I took my boyfriend Jared to WhyM as we were celebrating his birthday. It was our first time there. We came down from Lodi, New Jersey. And were going to the theatre afterwards. The restaurant is beautiful. Small and romantic. The service is awesome and the food, from the salad to the dessert was simply to die for. . I had the Crab Ravioli, which I highly recommend and the chopped salad. Jared has the Long Island Duck. They served us the warm chocolate cake with a candle as a surprise birthday cake. I am a chocoholic and I must say it was absolutely incredible. It was souffle style with a melted decadent chocolate filled center. Served with Hawaiin vanilla ice cream which was a pleasant surpise to the pallet. I would definitely travel from NJ to NY to WhyM again. We were in and out with plenty of time to spare for the show. WE so highly recommend this place. KUDOS to the chefs and staff.

Like its sister, ""Eatery"", WHYM tries putting on the dog on Ninth Ave. with $13.00 Martini's and some attitudinous staff. Food was OK, but the noise level is for the deaf or those with nothing to say. 20 somethings may enjoy the fatuous fanciness or ""hosts"" who make nasty comments behind their backs. Could be the raves I see here are created by friends and relatives? Go to Ralph's or The Flame down the street for easy-going cosy comfort. Or get real fine dining at Gabriel's.

I LOVED this place! I have been twice and plan on goign back many times! And I don't even live in the area. The food is good-went there for brunch the first time which had some different items from the usual norm ""brunch"" good. Second time, I went there for dinner and had one of their specials-meat loaf. The proportions are always a good size and the wait staff was very attentive and poilte. Highly recommended!
