Top Rated Upper West Side Restaurants

Top Rated Upper West Side Restaurants

We’re going by Yelp and Google ratings, and we’re beginning the list with the highest overall rating. But, it is of course fair to factor in restaurants with a higher volume of reviews to determine what you think are the top rated Upper West Side restaurants.

When you’re done – be sure to check out the top rated bars on the Upper West Side and the top rated restaurants in Washington Heights!

Just a couple of things to note:

  • some Yelp reviews get filtered, so for a more in-depth analysis, read through those reviews as well.
  • some people don’t know they can write reviews on Google ….
  • Yelp only does intervals of .5, whereas, you’ll notice some Google ratings of 4.3 or 4.7
  • These total numbers will obviously change over time.
  • Some restaurants have more reviews because they’ve been open longer. Use your discretion to weigh total scores versus the number of reviews.
  • Both Yelp and Google have a highest possible star rating of 5.
