Cozy and affordable, good food

Our flight was delayed and we missed our reservation at Gramercy Tavern, so we defaulted to dinner at the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised! Very good and reasonably priced. Loved the chowder and pot pie!

Normally we skip hotel restaurants because their food and staff are not quality. Not so at the Round Table. We were greeted immediately the 6 times we ate there for breakfast and dinner. The service staff is very attentive and fulfilled our requests. We met the chef on two occasions who was jovial and great to talk with. The food... More

It should be a give-away when 3 women are seated at the table nearest to the kitchen door. We should have left then. We should have had a drink in memory of the famous Round Table literary crowd, and left. However, we decided to have dinner. The menu is just plain weird - Kahlua fava beans sums it up, I... More

Nice decor in the lobby of the Algonquin Hotel (which is now owned and operated by Marriott. Somewhat expensive but rather bland menu choices. Service is antiquated with old waiters that are bored.

This place is a hidden gem in the middle of the theater district. It has a very flamboyant feel big chairs and traditional style trimmings, musical sound tracks playing. We went for a relaxing evening meal and at points we were the only people in there, think there is a big pre and post theater demand. The staff were very... More

Stayed at this hotel, The Algonquin , and looked forward to dinner at their "round table", but it seems that certain people are favored, and us regular folks although dressed well, did not receive the attention afforded dinner. The meals are limited and over priced, but regardless our service was limited as they seemed to dote on other guests wearing... More

We popped in here based on a concierge recommendation to grab dinner before a Broadway show. It was so cute and classy, and they had a special menu tucked inside a playbill for diners just like us - a pre-show special. It included an appetizer, an entree and a dessert. The food was fantastic and the wait-staff was friendly. As... More

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 computer screens. The... 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

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
