Had three hours to kill with a colleague of mine in JFK. Drinks were good, wedge salad was acceptable, server was great. I ordered the steak because the waitress promised me the steak would be tender enough to easily cut with my PLASTIC KNIFE. When the steak hit the table and I had to cut it with the plastic knife,...

This restaurant should be shut down. The staff was no where to be seen, the food was absolutely terrible and no one cared. It took us 2 hours to get our food. They ask you when you enter if you have 30 minutes before your flight = I guess it is because for the first 30 minutes they ignore you.... More

If you are in a hurry at JFK airport, I do not recommend stopping here to eat. I waited 15 mins just to get waited on and another 20 mins just receive a burger and fries. The food wasn't all that great and it took over an hour to eat here. There are much better options in the food court..

There aren't a plethora of food options in the JetBlue terminal, and this one has a nice menu. However, for an airport restaurant, where patrons can be in a bit of a time crunch, the service was a bit slow and unattentive.

First of all, our waitress was well informed about the menu and meal preparation. We wanted a meal before our flight, and this was the closest of five decent appearing restaurants to our gate. I ordered the wedge salad and my partner and I ordered the lobster bisque. The salad was fresh and adequate but the soup was delicious and... More

Worst experience in a restaurant for quite a while. I ordered a beer to start - out of stock . Ordered another, also out of stock. Asked about a third, an IPL, had never heard of it so asked the waitress what it was - she didn't know. In fact, she knew nothing about any of the drinks on the... More

We both agreed that the Fried Calamari was THE Best we have ever had...Tender, NOT Chewy, not oily, light batter and VERY tasty. Nice size dish for sharing as well. I had the Cuban Burger. It was Very Good. Service could have been better. I had an... More

I was hoping to have a meal at the JFK Shake Shack at terminal 4. Unfortunately I was flying from terminal 5 so I couldn't get behind security at terminal 4. So I settled for this steakhouse place. Turned out good at first. Some nice beer brands. Waitress asked how I wanted my burger (good sign! I thought) so I... More
