Perfect Cozy Dinner on a cold winter evening... 2/7/2007

Had dinner last night with a friend, the first time to 2 West. The restaurant is in the lobby area and its very roomy with pink and champagne colored walls and accents, dim lighting, which lends itself to a cozy and relaxing ambiance. The staff and waiter are very polite, attentive and genuine, very sweet and not cocky at all. The bread was a cross between dark and white bread, quite yummy. The white plates and dinner ware was very modern and strange looking, very sheik. The wine glasses were huge and VERY sophisticated, the wine list was decent and I had a very dry but good French Merlot. I started with a cup of the lobster bisque which was so delicious!! The broth was not too creamy, and lots of lobster chunks...I should have gotten the bowl. Then I had the special appetizer hot scallops with salad and pomengrates, which was tasty and different. I had the sea bass which was perfect, the basmati rice was a bit dry, so I ordered a side of creamy spinach which was total comfort food! My friend had the filet mignon and fries which was heaven. For dessert, I had the passion mango cheesecake with blueberries, raspberries, very tasty to end off the meal. The dinner was very laid-back, cozy, the food quite delicious, and the staff just right. This is a perfect place for a first date, quiet conversation or to take your mother for her birthday. I would definitely go back and try the steak, esgargot and crabcakes!! Pros: Dim-lighting, quiet, cozy ambiance, good food, attentive service Cons: The rice was dry and had no taste. That's it. more

The food is only bested by the class of the staff 11/18/2006

Pleasant but not outstanding 7/26/2005

While staying at the Ritz on business I've eaten about five meals at this restaurant. Some things were good, and others were not. I found the steak to be too rare. The tuna was extremely spicy, which was not mentioned on the menu. The lobster bisque, on the other hand, was very good. Some of the other dishes were good as well. The sauce chef was a nice touch. The staff is generally courteous and attentive. The atmosphere is quiet and pleasant. The bottom line is that when I don't have time to go elsewhere and am on an expense account, I would visit this place. However, this is not a place I'd visit for dinner when I am paying. For the same price, you can go to a much better restaraunt. Pros: Service, Atmosphere Cons: Prices more

Pampered and well fed 5/6/2005

2 West at the downtown Ritz location is quite the dining experience. The house specialty is the lobster bisque and the menu includes a porterhouse for two (great) and a Hawaiian Kobe (even better). There is a specially appointed Saucier who comes to the table with her sauce cart and offers you a choice of 7-8 different sauces...we tried several, each better than the next. Service was impeccable, and the desserts were great too! Pros: Delicious menu, Great service, Refined atmosphere Cons: Bit out of the way,, but worth it for sure more

Delicious 5/5/2005

Food was great! Saucier was amazing!!!! They bring a sauce cart up to your table and offer you up to 7 or 8 choices of sauces for your steak (I tried them ALL). The service was on point - what else you would expect from a Ritz? Wonderful dining experience. Dessert was also to die for! more

A big secret in Battery Park 5/4/2005

One of the best Restaurants in Dowtown. Nothing to deal with usual hotel Restaurants. It has caracter. Is good for kids as well. The food is amazing and the service is excellent. Pros: Service, Food, Wine selection more

Best Steak In NY 6/27/2004

2 West is clearly on of the best kept secrets in all of manhattan. This French-American steakhouse offers some of the best selections of meat, being one of three in the city having Certified Black Angus Prime Sirloin. To further enrich the experiance a Saucier comes to the table with a selection of 8-10 classically prepared French sauces to accompany your grilled entree. I was amazed at some of the options, truffle sauce..ect Besides the food, the Ritz staff really know how to spoil you with AMAZING service!! Pros: Service, Food Quality, Ambiance more

For the grown and sexy 6/15/2004

This is an excellent restaurant. It is a little off the beaten path all the way down in Battery Park, but well worth the trip. Not a trendy hipster hangout this restaurant caters to a mature clientele. The banquets are comfy and the service leaves you pampered. If you go make sure you try the lobster bisque. The steaks are excellent as is the seafood. The elegant atmosphere is completed by the piano playing lounge singer. Pros: Best service anywhere, great food, piano singer more
