Breakfast was not great

We were staying at a nearby hotel and ventured into Applebee's for a quick breakfast. Food and prices were on par with a Denny's; ok, but nothing special. One member of our party ordered oatmeal, which she said tasted like instant oatmeal with boiling water poured over it. The oatmeal was not... read more

Poor service unless you want your food to arrive at different times on different plates and the staff to get testy because you complain.

First the waiter was nice but easily distracted brought the wrong drinks and things like that. The internet list that they had the 2 for... More

First meal in New York and the 3 floor restaurant looked impressive whilst being in an ideal location. However unfortunately the food was bland and overpriced. This is not the standard I had come to expect from the U.S. Would not return or recommend.

We went there on our first day in Manhattan since it was close to the hotel. The attention is great, and the food is also good. Not a lot to choose from other than burgers, but it was good overall.

We went in for an early lunch before catching a plane. Our server wasn't very good. The food was just OK. We ordered off the lunch menu thinking it would be faster. It was slow and we had to ask the server to check on it. There were 4 of us and we all had salad and either soup or... More

We had brekafast in here. It took quite some time to get our order through,plus to have it delivered. The food was okayish but e.g. The fruit plate (at 7.59USD) was extremely overpriced. I wouldn't really recommend. (And for us,Europeans, the standard american coffee is really bad, but I guess that's not only this place)

Myself & husband ate here twice, both times were breakfast. Both visits resulted in a fab breakfast. Food was good value for money, good portions and hot. Our first visit was slightly more enjoyable as our server was friendly, smiley & efficient. On our second visit we were welcomed by a sour faced young woman who had a real attitude... More

The food was ok, but we didn't get everything that we ordered. The staff didn't seem to know who was serving which table and it didn't seem they were that interested. I thought portion size was small for the price.

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.
