poor food and bad attendant

We usually go to TGI, because we love pork ribs, but at this time wasn't so good. The airconditioning was freezing us and they didn't do anything. The restaurant was empty and the attendants didn't pay attention in our table.

TGI Fridays is and has been for years my all time favourite place to eat! I absolutely love the food, service and over all feel of the place, that is until I visited the NYC 5th avenue location on a recent family holiday. What a dive of a place. Walked in to a very different setting to the usual places... More

From outside it looks great, on entering we were sent upstairs and the girl radio'd up to say two were coming up for lunch. When we got upstairs we were sat in a large but mostly empty restaurant, never a good sign in New York!! When we sat down we realised why, the decor was awful and desperately needs shutting... More

Had a burger here, food was OK, staff were not very friendly, couldn't really be bothered. Decor was old and tatty. Toilets were grim.

Tired and badly in need of redecoration, this TGI Friday's is the worst one I've been to. The food was over-cooked and the beer was flat. Bad choice for lunch on 5th Avenue. Give it a miss!

Have been here a few times over the last couple of years. Meals are plentiful and the steaks are delicious. Staff always asked if everything was ok. Lovely staff, great service and fantastic value hot money.

We ate here on our first night in New York this week. Obviously knowing the brand in the UK, we decided to go for something we know on our first night. The restaurant itself is looking pretty shabby, which we didn't expect for a restaurant on 5th Avenue. The waiters were a little unfriendly, made us on edge a little... More

We arrived around 7pm and ordered starter and mains. From where we sat, we could see kitchen and could see that something wasn't quite right. There appeared to be heated discussions about orders. 30 mins later our starter arrived. Not hot and over cooked. A while later our meals arrived. Again not hot, warm at best. The entire meal took...

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
