Great Mexican on 9th!

We really enjoyed our evening here, great food, great atmosphere and great staff. The margaritas certainly pack a punch, would recommend and definitely go back!

Really great atmosphere and awesome location. The food was great but, I somehow expected more. Either way the food was good and very fresh. I loved the tomato soup and calamari.

The host staff were great... {the first experience}, attentive and friendly. Our waitress... not so much. I understand stress due to business, we all work for a living. But, when your job is to cater to one's wants & needs, you should kind of try to be good at it. Our waitress sucked. We *would* have ordered more drinks if... More

I went here with my family of 5 and 119.00 (no drinks) later we left Hungry. The food was not that great, the portions were small, the waiter was clearing the table while we still were eating and talking. We definitely felt we were being rushed out. We will not be going back there again.

I went there for dinner the other evening with my family of 5 and 119.50 later with no drinks we still left hungry. The food was nothing to rave about in taste or quality. We will definitely not be going back

We randomly decided to have our dinner at this restaurant. I really enjoyed my meal. They played a great music as well. It is a low key place with lots of potential.

Just back from a trip to NYC. Never written a review before but felt compelled to this time. We stayed in Doubletree Suites in Times Sq (great hotel if you have kids) and found this gem on our last day. Only disappointment was that we didn't find it earlier. Fantastic food (sirloin burger at $11 incl salad/fries- amazing). Am a... More

Always great quality food, and fast friendly service. Took the kids with me this time, the Mac'n'Cheese is a bargain at £4, but the real hit was the Salt Beef, Mustard and Pickles bagel. My daughter was VERY impressed!

Hell's Kitchen has recently moved to 51st St. and 9th Avenue, from 46-47th St. I ate at the old place a few times and liked it, but never reviewed it. So last night I went to the new place. The good news is that the food is still good and the prices are still great. We had the guacamole, which... More

We've go to NYC every month or 2, and we eat at Hell's Kitchen at least once during our stay. It's a small, casual, pleasant restaurant with very good food and service.

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.
