Good place to stop while waiting for a flight

We were delayed in JFK so we stopped here for dinner. We were surprised at how good the food was. The service was very friendly and accommodating. A bit pricey but that's what you get being in an airport. Overall pleased.

We ordered different burgers all were not good as we expected and table were not clean we had to clean ours. Service was poor and slow. As we understand from our NY visit most restaurants focused on money and profit more than quality and service.

Longing for a good steak, I dropped by 5ive Steak at JFK. Went ahead and risked ordering a medium ribeye. At first, I was offered a sauce! In my book (taste), good steaks do not need sauces! To my surprise, the ribeye was VERY flavourful and tender. A little towards the rare side, but mostly medium cooked. Sat at the... More

Flight delayed for 2hrs so I took the family to lunch at 5ive Steak at the Jet Blue Terminal at JFK. What a difference in airport food from years ago. Great atmosphere, friendly hostess and servers. I had a Steak Sandwich Aujour and it was very good. You can skip the crab appetizer looked like tuna fish out of a... More

I stopped here for a quick drink(Malibu rum and coke) before my long flight and it was delicious!! This was our second stop at a restaurant because no other had the Malibu rum we wanted and we were very happy that it was so good. My friend and I sat at the bar and the bartender was super friendly and... More

Stopped here to the jumble of restos that is Terminal 5. The undulating seating and host/hostess situation is both confusing and inefficient. It probably looked great on some architects drawings, but in reality, is a mess. After a few minutes of trying to figure it out, and the hosts were not a lot of help, I settled on 5ivesteak because... More

Came here for breakfast today. Had the Eggs Benedict, and they were really good. It's not the cheapest place, but a great option to the typical airport fast food / sandwich options.

We really enjoyed our food. The Kale salad was excellent, the asparagus was tasty and cooked to perfection. My husband liked his veggie burger. The server was very nice and accomodating. However, the food took forever to arrive. We almost had to bring it on the flight!

Like many who travel often I think food in airports is of variable quality. So we should celebrate when a good one is found. 5 Steak is nicely off the busy terminal, the menu is good with some interesting and unusual additions, the wine offering is also good and the service is quick and professional. My only regret is that... More

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,...
