About us

Here at Banter Irish Bar and Kitchen we strive to recreate the traditional Irish pub scene with a modern and distinguished menu. Featuring twists on all of the old time Irish favorites, like Bubble and Squeak Dumplings and Jameson Spring Rolls, come experience the new era of Irish pub food.

Proudly serving New York's largest Irish Whiskey selection- 79 and counting.



Established in 2013

Banter is defined as "an exchange of light, teasing remarks". Here at Banter Irish Bar and Kitchen, we thought that world described the atmosphere we were trying to create.

Opened on the eve of St. Patricks Day earlier this year, we were determined to bring the next level of an Irish pub and eatery to Forest Hills. Bathed in tradition and spiced with creativity, we intend to be here for a very long time.


You have to make it down to Banter's, and visit with Nialll, great bartender, whom will also put on your favorite music. Cozy place!

My husband and I have enjoyed dinner and brunch at Banter.We always say that we will try other spots in the area for brunch, ultimately we end up at Banter...

I had an appointment in Forest Hills - which I'm not very familiar with the neighborhood. But got lucky with a spare two hours when I ran in to the Banter...

Place is great, great food drinks and people. A couple of neg reviews on here are so silly, prissy little princesses who apparently didn't get the royal food or treatment. It's a bar and a good one!!!.
