Eléa review image

View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Elea is a Greek restaurant on the Upper West Side with a bar area upstairs and a big dining room in the basement, and it’s perfect for a somewhat upscale dinner that isn't too stuffy. Your options range from salads and lamb chops to a whole grilled fish, and you should be sure to start with a few of the dips (such as the hummus). The food is consistently delicious, and reservations are pretty easy to come by, so keep this place in mind for any semi-important dinners you need to plan uptown. Try not to fill up on the complimentary bread.

The Ribbon review image

Finally, the kind of restaurant the Upper West Side has long been starved for. The Ribbon has style and substance and does classic food right.

Jacobs Pickles is great if you need an Upper West Side brunch spot or dinner meetup with someone you know will embrace the heavy bar food.

Another location of The Mermaid Inn, another perfect first date spot.

Pizzeria Sirenetta review image

If you want to sit down and eat a good pizza on the Upper West Side, go to Pizzeria Sirenetta. And try to get there before Happy Hour ends.
