It was our first visit to New York City and we did all the typical tourist things you could do. 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... read 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

Had a wonderful dining experience here this evening. The prices were very reasonable and the atmosphere was lovely. The duck and the lobster/shrimp mains were delectable as were the deserts.

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...

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.

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.

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.
