I was so sad to see this place closed when i passed a couple of weeks ago. My husband and i used to ride in the city, then we go there for lunch and people watching. They had great burgers and sandwiches. It was so nice outside when the weather was warm... I hope I will see them again, i hope they are not out of business, 2nd ave is a very busy street, but i guess the rent went up in contrast with the economy... :(

Pros: food, the vibe

Cons: none

The waitress(Brit with ugly curly hair) was rude and there are no substitutions.

In the mood for some spotted dick? Yorkshire pudding? Fish and chips? Then head down to the East Village and visit the Telephone Bar and Grill. The red English style pay phones outside may seem hokey, but inside you'll be treated to a real English pub experience. They also serve many great English ales and ciders on tap. The food is OK, but the real reason to go is the atmosphere.

The bar was reasonably priced and NYE was very fun there, with hats etc. The server was not that nice though... but he was stressed.

I have been going to telephone bar for years; the food is excellent and the atmosphere is great. I'm a vegetarian and enjoy great salads. They had a chopped mediterranean salad which was enormous and delicious! Unfortunately, after going there last night they have changed this salad on the menu and the replacement was awful. BAD MOVE TELEPHONE BAR!!! The new version has is just a pile of lettuce with a few cherry tomatos, some chick peas and awful croutons. I am definitely going to have to find a new place for a chopped salad!

Pros: amazing quesadillas, conveniently located

GREAT food: this place has the best fish & chips in town. Even my boyfriend, who is not an anglophile like me, found plenty of menu items to make him happy.
GREAT drinks: they have Magner's Cider on tap and, for some reason, that makes it taste even better.
FUN ATMOSPHERE: I dragged some out-of-town friends there and we had a great time. We got a table outside, drank and chatted to our heart's content.

A New Yorker of European origin, I have had nothing but bad attitude from the staff of this restaurant on the two or three occasions I have met up with friends here.

The worst occasion, and the final straw for me was when myself and four friends were told that we could have a table if we moved away from our stools at the bar. We were directed to a table by a member of staff, which we were then informed was reserved, and lost our seats at the bar, all this after spending upwards of $30 each on very expensive drinks over a two-hour period. When we complained about losing our seats, we were told 'get out if you don't like it, there are plenty of people who want to spend their money here, we don't need yours'. Nice.

There's a great little bar two doors down!
