I really, really wanted to love our second time visiting the Liberty, but sadly our expectations were far from met. Our first visit was incredible and we stayed for 6 hours. Tonight for a special occasion and all of our guests were uncomfortable 2 hours in for several reasons. The beginning of our evening was wonderful with a bright bubbly waitress who was extremely attentive and fun. However, as soon as she went on break our night completely changed. We never got a new waitress, and I had to ask to have someone come out to our table so we could order more food. That was the only time we had a waitress the remainder of the evening. When we asked for our heaters to be turned down or off, they lied and said they couldn’t because it would turn all of the other guests’ heaters off. However, our heater was not on when we arrived or for the beginning of the evening, and we asked to have it turned on. It was just so extremely hot it became uncomfortable, and we were made to feel like a bother for even asking. So, we asked for the check instead. And the host gave us a dirty look! I was shocked. To top it all off, there were ginormous cockroaches crawling all over the structure and on the chairs and even on another customers table. The hostess shrugged it off and told us the neighbors had rats. We couldn’t believe it and it ruined what was supposed to be a going away party for a friend. It was NOT our first waitress. She was amazing. It was the staff who took over that made the experience so uncomfortable.

Very nice brunch at Liberty NYC. The burger was excellent and those that got the breakfast items also were positive on the food. Service was also very good.

They advertise brunch, no brunch. And after we ate they asked us not so nicely to leave cause there was a party there in 20 mins.
We went to the bar next door. They never had a party and never needed our table.
Not to mention the service sucked, and the food was below average.

Party of 6 overall good food except the fish and chips, it was soggy like they pulled it out of fryer and not drain some of the oil. Had to ask for malt, it wasn't offered. Everyone else enjoyed their steak, chicken sandwich and quinoa salad but 2 fish and chip orders were dissapointing. Beer selection on draft was limited. Friendly staff and good ambiance.

We attended the drag brunch at the Liberty. Our main reason for booking was the Drag Brunch but we were beyond impressed with the food as well. A great brunch spot that we would recommend regardless of the show. The show plus the food made it a 10/10 experience

The food was delicious, had the NY steak, it was cooked to perfection. The price for what we ate was a fantastic deal. thank you. The atmosphere was comfortable, enough, not crammed in, space you could talk and not be worried to be overheard, unless you wanted to be.
The service was good, not what I am used to, usually have the server stopped at the table to make sure all is good. We did have a person, not our server ask us.
great time, great value, great food.

The food was delicious. We had the appetizer sampler and each item was better than the last. We also had the Fettucini Alfredo and the Fish & Chips. Both were delicious. The servings were generous, the drinks were also very good.

Overall ok. However, the manager in the black baseball cap was very unwelcoming and did not make my party feel comfortable. He made comments about my table and then looked at us for a period time.

I believe he did not like our “kind” at his venue. This was very sad and disheartening. As they say: never judge a boon by its cover.

Brunch at The Liberty was great! We brought friends from out of state and I couldn't have picked a better brunch spot. Our server was fantastic and very attentive. We did the bottomless mimosas (1.5 hours of endless drinks for $25) and our glasses never went empty. They brought pitchers to the table around the clock! The avocado toast was super filling. It was a pretty noisy spot but just what we wanted.

We went to The Liberty NYC to celebrate my husband's birthday at the Drag Brunch. At first, we were terribly disappointed with the table - we were seated at a two-top where we sat perpendicularly to each other with one of us facing a pillar. After the show started, it made sense. The food was really good - and the overall experience was a lot of fun. The queens were really talented, and we were literally sitting right next to their performance aisle. We had a great time and were ultimately really glad we were seated where we were.

The kicker that topped off the whole experience was that we dropped our car keys while we were there. We spent the rest of the day tooling around the city, and not until we were ready to leave did we realize we were keyless. We called the restaurant and they were all but expecting our call. In fact, when I finally checked my phone, they had tried to call me twice to tell us they had the keys. The staff was incredibly accommodating and helpful with that issue.

Everything was great except the noise level. There were very rowdy guests, and my friends and I (who haven’t seen each other in 3 years) had difficulty hearing one another. Otherwise, the drinks were EXCELLENT, food was GREAT, and the service was mediocre.
