Great food but quite expensive

A lovely meal whilst sat outside. Waiter was attentive and food was tasty. A little pricier than expected but overall quite good.

The appetizer was mostly empty clam shells and a weak broth ! Dinner was just an average affair,nothing to write home about, with that being said we didn't bother with dessert.

I went here on my birthday (July 16th). The waiter was very friendly and helpful. I asked if the chef could make me a spicy pizza. It was amazing! Freshly made and absolutely perfect. I had the new York cheese cake for desert which they put candles on and sang happy birthday. They even took drinks off the bill as... More

We (4 friends) stumbled across this little club our third night in NY. The entertainers double as service staff in this intimate, relaxed and friendly venue. Music ranged from Broadway tunes to more contemporary music. The night we went we were privileged to hear a young man called Charles Davis sing. He hails from Georgia, came to NY and decided...

Conveniently located near Times Square, we were pleasantly surprised to find a charming restaurant with a reasonably price prix-fixe menu. My sister had the bruschetta, grilled salmon and walnut brownie . I had pasta fagoili soup, grilled chicken breast and lemon meringue pie. Both were very tasty and well presented. Cost per person was only $24 and our table was... More

We were approached by a employee on the street who showed us their pre show menu. We were lucky enough to get a table in the small courtyard on the street. Lovely atmosphere. The three course meal was $24 per person. We were served breads and crispbreads with olive oil for dipping. My partner had bruschetta with grilled tomatoes and... More

We visited this piano bar on two consecutive nights during our stay in NYC. We went back because the first night was brilliant...good service, great (singing) staff and great entertainment. The second visit was unbelievably bad!!..different staff made all the difference. If you visit, just hope you get lucky!

We tried the fixed-price menu before going to the theater while we were in NYC. After debating between several places, we chose Don't Tell Mama based on a combination of other reviews, price, and atmosphere. We made a reservation ahead of time since we read it could be crowded, and went at 5 pm. Although the atmosphere was okay inside,... More

I traveled to NYC alone on a one night adventure to see a few Broadway shows. Saturday night after my amazing show I decided to visit Don't Tell Mama just to explore NYC night life. It is centrally locate close to Time Square and all the Broadway theaters. The moment you arrive to the place you can feel the energy,... More

Took the Grey Line Tours, saw a Broadway Show, walk through Central Park etc. we had one evening that we had left open and we happened into this establishment by chance. What a wonderful piece of luck that was. 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.
