Ambience great and the rest could be so much better

It was fun to dine in the historical setting. They still have a round table in front of the unused bar with the mural of the glory days, Benchley, Dorothy Parker, et al. There appear to be writers and personages at the round table, but they were not exchanging a word as they all looked into their... read more

The Round Table at the Algonquin Hotel was one of my favorite NY dining experiences. The hostess greeted my party warmly and seated us promptly. Although we were offered the regular menu, we opted for the reasonably priced pre-theatre menu which included a salad, entree, and dessert. All were delicious and adequate portions. The service was outstanding with an attentive,... More

Visiting New York from Texas. Ate here for the first time and asked what they recommended. Not only was the food delicious, but the service was some of the best I have experienced. They made this Texan one happy customer. Will come again next time I am up this way. Pam froTexas

It was such a pleasure to dine in a historical building that was full of character. I had the fish which was to die for. The service was great and the ambiance was perfect for our anniversay celebration. Don't get to New York often, but it certainly will be on my list of places to return to.

Came for pre-theater and it was divine. The popover chowder was interesting and yummy. Never heard of a soup made with bread in it but it was so tasty creamy and rich. My partner had the nori baked tuna with seaweed and I had the flap steak. Wasn't sure what a flap steak was but it was really good the... More

Beautiful place and love all the history. Unfortunately that is where it ends. We went in for the Prix-Fixe dinner before a show. The appetizer of fried green tomatoes was interesting, but the tomatoes themselves were not of great quality. The steak was so tough it was practically inedible. They should be embarrassed to have such a cut of meat... More

If this is your first visit to the Algonquin, you'll be surprised to find that the restaurant IS the lobby. You come in off the street directly into the restaurant--which is really just the back half of the space. The front half is the "lounge" or bar. It's quite small, but then again, it is an old, historic building, so... More

The Algonquin is a big part of theatre and literary history in New York City and it's always a special place to visit. I love sitting in the lobby for drinks, but this time we ate in the restaurant. The food was wonderful. The service was good, although it could have been better (mixed up orders and a sense they... More

Unfortunately we did not have a good experience here, My chicken dinner was tasty and tender. My husband's steak was not cooked correctly. When it was returned, the meat was still very chewy and not edible. We were not charged for the meal or my husband's drink.

We almost always stop here for a drink after a show, and last weekend we started with drinks, then added a few appetizers. When we arrived, it was very busy, but we were able to get a great table with comfortable chairs. The Ruben trio and stuffed meatballs were great small plates, although on other occasions we have taken advantage... 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.
