We came here for drinks after seeing a Broadway show, on the recommendation of a friend. It was fantastic! The bar snacks were good (good selection and well cooked) and there was a good selection of Broadway themed cocktails. The entertainment was amazing. The pianist was fantastic, as were the bar staff, who sang a set (and took requests). They... More

This restaurant promised a lot but failed to deliver. The chicken satay skewers were dry and tasteless, you had to search hard for any crab in the crab cakes, shrimp linguini was so bland it could have been butter linguini, the ribs had no ribs to them and the restaurant section is isolated from the cabaret and piano bar areas...

I won't offer a bad review unless really deserving. I ordered Salmon. It was not much bigger than a postage stamp. Absolutely absurd and ridiculous. Will definitely not be returning. Too bizarre.

We ate here after a Broadway show so it was not crowded. My husband had the strip steak and it was very good, but my dish of shrimp scampi was awful. It was swimming in oil/butter and they were a bit skimpy with the shrimp. We were not even told about the piano bar and entertainment in the bar, we... More

A small bar with an excellent bartender for a glass of wine and some relaxing piano music before dinner. Enjoy!

Will go here everytime I visit NYC. Saturday evenings the pianist, Lana Reign plays and entertains. She is phenomenal! Will never miss the opportunity to go to Don't Tell Mama and enjoy the talent.

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

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.
