Our group of four got sidetracked touring NY so we never quite got around to making a dinner reservation, after wandering around the Times Square area for what seemed like hours we came across Sardi's. Name recollection clicked in so we decided to go for it. Very pleased! Seated almost immediately, waiter/wait staff were very responsive, our dinners were excellent... More

Sardi's has long been one of the top restaurants in the New York City theater district. It is sometimes dismissed as being too "touristy", but based on a recent meal there, I believe that it continues to be an outstanding p;ace to eat prior to a Broadway show. Both the food is consistently excellent (I particularly like their Eggs Benedict... More

Best wait staff you can find. They are experienced and know the restaurant and the clientele. Mixture of tourists, seasoned Broadway hands and a sprinkle of stars all eat here. Usually there is a menu of the day, but their standard fare is always superb. Go for the atmosphere which hasn't changed in 50 years but enjoy the food. Prices... More

Sardi's is old school event dining. The crowd skews toward an older demographic. It's a nice place to dine before going to a Broadway play, celebrate a birthday or anniversary. The service is attentive. The drinks are and the food is good, but not outstanding. Make sure to make reservations a head of time or be turned away at the... More

The service was excellent. The picts on the wall are super fun. The food was hit and miss. The sparking wine was terrible, the Cesar salad was good; the crab cakes were excellent; the cannelloni, shrimp and salmon were all just okay - although the spinach and sweet potatoes with the salmon were divine. We got three different desserts to... More

We arranged to meet friends from Canada at Sardi's, it was a good choice, good atmosphere ideal for the theatreland it serves. The food was pretty uninspiring for our table other than my canalloni which was wonderful. We had not seen our friends for a couple of years and there was absolutely no pressure to leave which we all appreciated.... More

Excellent service and you were made to feel very special. The food was outstanding and arrived timely. We sat next to two very well known actors - very New York!

This place gets REALLY busy at dinner with all of the surrounding shows. They do offer a prix-fixe menu but we ordered off the regular menu. It's a lot of food but there's nothing really spectacular about it, and it'll put a dent in your wallet. Looking around the room to guess the caricatures is fun for about two minutes,... More

We went to Sardi's before a Broadway show and it didn't disappoint! While the food was standard for a restaurant of this type, the atmosphere and the service were incredible and definitely worth the visit. The red walls covered with signed characatures of anyone who is anyone in Broadway are charming and the ever present and attentive staff were amazing.... More
