Great job for such a new place. Decor is as hot as the food! A Beautiful Crowd and a much needed restaurant in this area.

Yummy food, affordable prices and the same friendly staff they have at Eatery. I tried their delivery for lunch this week at my office and it was a big success! Totally recommend it.

went here with my boyfriend and we both thaught it was a great find and a short walk to lincoln center. Tuna entree with edamama puree was a suggestion from the table next to us and boy what a good one. The cheesecake trilogy (a tasting with 3 different sauces) was great for the both of us to share. P.S. I need those chandeliers in my house!

Pros: good service, great food, nice hostess

Cons: a little loud

Wonderful atmosphere and great food. Service was expert and curtious. It is a very comfortable place to have dinner and close enough to Lincoln Center to make it a great place to go before a concert.

Last night 3 friends took me to Whym for my birthday and the evening couldn't have been better! From the decor, drink menu, great booth for a group of 4, friendly & helpful staff to the amazing food. We all drank, ate and laughed and will definately be back again! The recommendation of the duck was perfect as well as the specials...no one had a single complaint!\r

Pros: drink menu, interesting dinner menu, staff

Cons: just the lack of seating at the bar which we already knew about

.

The people behind Eatery did it again with Whym. I had dinner there last night(brunch today at eatery of course)and my friends and I had a blast. The menu has somthing for evryone and we were not disapointed. The food and drinks held up to eatery's rep and the service was just as good if not better. The employees at both restaurants are so welcoming and realy enjoy what they are doing. It is so nice to now have TWO restaurants that are so friendly and have such great food. Keep up the good work. My fiends wanted to go to eatery for brunch today. We took a look at whyms brunch menu before we left last night and will be back to try it next weekend. \r

Pros: Great Food and Cocktails, and the Staff!

Cons: None so far

My husband and I returned today from a 5 day trip to NYC with our 10 year old son and a group of friends. We meticulously researched restaurants based on location, reviews and price. We chose to try Whym on a Friday night with our son and one friend. The rest of our group went to a different restaurant. The food was some of the best and most creative we have ever tasted. My husband had the tuna and I had the blackened maui maui and it was the best fish I can remember eating. Although they normally do not have children, they were not only friendly to our son, but very accomodating and at no point did we feel uncomfortable about having him there. We ordered two desserts and the chef sent out a third that he was ""trying out"" that night. I am not sure what it was, but it was probably the most imaginative dessert my husband and I have had. It had all the best things in life in it.........cream, gelato and peaches! We loved Whym so much we cancelled our reservations at another place on our last night and all of our friends went there with us. They all agreed it was the best restaurant they had gone to during the trip. Some ate at some pretty popular and expensive restaurants in New York. The only thing better than the food was the service. Chad was our waiter and he was friendly and helpful and made the evening fun without being intrusive. The staff at the front was outstanding. This will be a favorite for us in coming years and a favorite for all our friends, too. Thank you to Whym for creating a memorable trip to NY.

I'VE LIVED IN THE AREA FOR 8 YEARS AND IT'S NICE TO FINALLY HAVE A RELIABLE FRIENDLY SPOT TO VISIT. BRUNCH EGGS WERE PERFECT FOR ME AND OUR FAMILY AND THE BURGERS ARE VERY GOOD TOO. PEACH PARFAIT IS A MUST ALSO.

Menu limited..... food not great and surely not much to eat except for the chips that fill the plate and stomach. Salad my two fellow dinners had much tastless.... very disappointing... should have eaten at the Eatery their sister company.... business must be slow as air conditioning was set to a comfortable level noting a need to cost corners.
Need to change something..

I've been living near columbus circle for so long and finally an affordable good restaurant opens! freindly hosts and fun staff makes this place my newest hangout. I love the tuna entree and their chocolate cake is awesome. We also went to brunch recently and my dad loved the place.

Pros: food, service, cool bathrooms

Went here for my b-day dinner. I think there are many restaurants in the immediate proximity that serve better food and has better services. Ordered the onion tart and chopped salad for appetitizers. Both were better than the entrees, Long Island Duck and sea scallopp specaials. Duck was too salty and the crispy rolled noodle in seaweed was soggy. Scallopp was nothing specatcular.

Decided to try out this new joint and was pleased with the outcome. Trendy restaurant with great food! To top it off, our waiter had a great sense of humor and his recommendations were honest (he actually said some of the dessert choices were no good!). Must try the baby arugula salad....simply amazing! Great food for a great price too

The #1 draw besides the beautiful design is the terrific service staff. In a city where pretentions can run high, the staff at Whym is attentive and friendly. Our food was beautiful to look at and just as delicious and I and my date were thoroughly impressed. I've already recommended it to friends and coworkers.

I am a big ""Eatery"" fan, so when I heard these guys opened a new spot - I wanted to check it out. They raised the bar on 9th Avenue again! The food was amazing(mushroom tortellini is a must try) , drinks were fun and the staff is warm and helpful from the minute you walk in to the minute they walk you out. Great date spot. I went back for brunch last weekend and had the same positive experience. Not only was the food wonderful again... they actually remembered me from my dinner visit. That kind of personal attention is hard to find here in NY. Excellent!

I am very surprsied at the neg. comments. Went last night and everything was great -very friendly staff - when my pregnant friend asked for a fun non-alcholoic drink the waiter enthusiastically made a great concoction and really cared whether she enjoyed it. He made wonderful suggestions and even gave us some complimentary onion rings. The food, without exception was fresh, and flavorful with interesting combinations that worked well.
Even though it was very crowded we did not feel rushed at all.
Worth the trip. I will be back.

I had such a great experience at WHYM...Food was so affordable and high quality! The service was impeccable..and the ambiance was so relaxing and trendy at the same time. I tried their brunch today...and it was fabulous. The brunch menu has so many different foods to offer...I was so impressed as were my friends!

Upon entering the restaurant I was greeted by the smell of delicious food and a pleasant ambience. Unfortunately things went down hill from there. The hosts were pretentious to put it nicely and I had the NY strip steak which was average (definitely not worth the $24 price). With so many other restaurants to choose from in NYC, I would not put Whym on a must visit list. A new restaurant needs to carry itself beyond the initial buzz and attract repeat customers - a goal I doubt Whym will accomplish.

I ate at this new ""hot spot"" last weekend, and I was greeted with a very rude man at the door. I was fored to wait at the very tight bar space even though there were many tables open! When I finially sat, the food was good. I had duck raviolli and my date had the huge pot pie. I recommend sharing the pot pie...way too big for one person. Nice space, although the bar is insane.

Last night I visited this gem with my fiancee and we had a terrific date.
We both decided upon the $40 Prix-Fixe Valentine's Menu. It was a spledid choice and left our tummy completely satistifed!
Try the Shrimp Tamale as a starter, the NY Steak for entree and for desert the Warm Chocolate Cake with Vanilla ice cream.
The ambiance is wonderful and when the lights dimmed...it was even more romantic. It's very Crate & Barrel inspired. Staff are very helpful and friendly.
What more can you ask for? This is a great find! Must check it out.

I had read about the opening of Whym online and decided to be the guinea pig. Not only was our food delicious, the atmosphere fun (trendy, but SO not obnoxious), but the staff was friendly, accommodating, and gave excellent recommendations! Oh yeah, don't forget to try the peanut butter martini for dessert!
