This place is very average and service is slow. Food is just okay. This resturant is not kid friendly. I would not recommend bringing children here. Very unsatisfying.

I’ve been dining at 107 West for about a year and in the business world of Washington Heights restaurants I must say that’s a compliment to the establishment. I usually call in for delivery but at times I take out and must say that the atmosphere inside is charming and very laid back. Here are my dining experiences with this place: SOUPS- excellent. SALADS- very good. BURGERS- The opposite of what they advertise them to be (“juicy”) DRY! If I want a burger from a restaurant I expect it to be done in the right way. FRENCH FRIES- soggy, tasteless… JAMBALAYA- if you have had the real deal jambalaya- don’t order! You’ll be disappointed. QUESADILLA- Average. FAJITAS- Average. PASTA- have not tried it yet, hooked on salads and soups (see above). RED BEANS & RICE (side order) - left me puzzled. It’s such an odd taste… Maybe I’m used to “local” rice and beans ;) Although this review might sound a bit harsh, this place is sooo needed in this area. So, when UWS seems thousands of miles away and you get the feeling to “bond” with Washington Heights- this is a place you should start with!

I agree with some of the reviewers in that the menu is overpriced for what you get. The restaurant has an easy going, local atmosphere, but it isn't worth writing home about. Nothing about this place stands out, but it will do for a change of scenery. I prefer breakfast/brunches to dinners. It fits a more casual feel that works for breakfast or lunch.

$18 average price for different dishes made up of the same ingredients. The food is tasty, but this place is a rip-off. The staff is nice, but for such a small restaurant, i would expect even faster service. What is with these restaurants coming into this area and expecting to be some upscale restaurant without the full quality?

"nice" restaurants in this neighborhood are few and far between, so having an eclectic menu helps take the sting out of living so far up town. altho the recipes of some dishes could stand a sprucing up, and the chefs can take a lesson or two in preparing certain dishes (like the rice and bean combo--what the hell is that all about??), i've always found the food to be fresh and tasty. another great aspect is that the chef will prepare anything on the menu to your liking, without an argument. ...prices are higher than they should be but so what... ...delivery is fast and friendly. ...the waitstaff vascilates between mediocre and slow. ...the interior is decent, if not a little minimalist. ...daily specials reeeeeeellly need re-vamping.

The food in a pinch is good enough, but daily specials are not varied enough and the regular menu items are prepared so consistently as to be characterized as boring. A good shake up to the menu would do wonders.

it's the only game in town so they don't need to improve the food to get business. it's good in a pinch but oy is it overpriced and the menu is a muddled fusion affair that just needs to decide what it wants to be when it grows up. if i'm really in need of something i'll get the grilled chicken salad which at over 17bucks is one expensive outing.
