My wife and I went twice in the past week. The first was to have dinner the day we arrived in NYC. We shared mini crab cakes which were very tasty. For the main, my wife had chicken piccata and I had shrimp fra diavolo. The chicken was good and the shrimp was very good, the spiciness was right. For... More

Went with my girlfriends before a show. We had a hard time getting out table as I had made reservations and they couldn't find them. Well at least I had a photo on my phone for the confirmation. At that point we got our table immediately. Unfortunately they sat us right in front of a door between the restaurant and... More

My husband, daughter and I decided to have an early dinner here before seeing the show "Hamilton" (which is right down the street at the Richard Rodgers Theater). Don't Tell Mama is within easy walking distance of a number of Broadway theaters, as well as Times Square; that's why we chose it. The menu offers something for everyone, but I... More

Fun piano bar. 2 drink minimum but cheap entertainment. Waiters and waitresses do the singing and they are fantastic.

We went for an early dinner. Started out by having a drink in the bar and listening to a wonderful piano player. Then we went over the restaurant and had the place to ourselves. It was early and a Monday so it is always a little slow. My husband had the spaghetti and meatballs and loved it. I ordered from... More

This place is located just about 2 blocks from Times Square. On 46th. It's another world from there. Actually in a neighborhood atmosphere. We had reservations for 11 including children and we were seated. The place was full that evening Most of the group had the Thanksgiving dinner. I thought the food was good and the service too. Our waiters... More

We didn't eat here, but instead went along to the piano bar (after it had been suggested to us by some local Mets fans we'd bumped into at another bar) and had an amazing time. The pianist doesn't know every song under the sun, but he gives it his all with the ones he does! He had our entire group... More

We came upon this fine place while looking for a pre theater dinner. The place is actually three rooms in one. A restaurant, a piano bar, and the cabaret. we restaurant is rather small and has a full service bar. The tables are also small as are the dinner selections. If only the portions were bigger this place could get... 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.
