A Laugh

Visited for pre dinner drinks with a group of work colleagues and it was a fantastic way to break the ice. The entertainment was bad and the cocktails were strong. Don't expect too much and you will be delighted and amused.

I have waited awhile before posting this review so I could have a good very long think about how I can tell this tale. My husband and I visited NYC for 16 days in September 2014, staying in this neighborhood. My cousin was visiting us for a weekend and being huge Broadway musical fans from way back, we did our...

The food was really good, reasonably priced and the service helpful and friendly. After the meal we went to the piano bar and had a great time until the early hours. The tips jar is passed around for the performers, but not too frequently and they are worth it. We went back so must be good.

This time we ate at the restaurant before moving on to the piano bar. Food was good and service quick....you can keep an eye on the bar to make sure you get a table before it fills up. Again, the waiters and waitresses performed really well, there is some genuine talent working there. A fun evening.

This place was very close to our hotel and we decided to check it out. This is a wonderful piano bar where all the staff can sing - really well, even the bartender sang! The atmosphere was very lively and everyone seemed to be having a good time. If you love musicals, you'll really like this place.

From amazing garlic bread (like none ever had before) to tremendous entrees like lobster and shrimp ravioli, seafood trio in best white whine sauce - tons of seafood, and the best duck beast ever. Patrick our server was attentive and helpful. It was hard to choose what to eat--everything looks so tasty! Definitely a great find in NYC. Also, it's... More

After the theater great place to go to see should could be on Broadway singers - who also serve the drinks. Very small - close tables - you will most likely need to wait - but it is worth it. When the waitress did Under The Sea just like the movie with full acting out the part - you will... More

We stopped in here after seeing a show at Radio City Music Hall. It's so good! The atmosphere is nice but not stuffy, the service spectacular. We tried the Seafood Trio ($25) and the 10oz. NY Strip ($25). And the server's recommendation of the house-made garlic bread was superb. Both entrees were tasty - the steak's wine reduction gave it... More

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.
