How the Mighty Have Fallen!

First time we ate in the Oak Room was @35 years ago. Very impressive. We have now gone twice in the last two years (be sure to ask for THE ROUND TABLE if you have 6+ diners) and this last time, 2/28/2015 was very disappointing. Except for my Prix Fixe pre-theatre dinner (stuffed chicken... read more

Went with a couple of friends because of the history of the place, and while the ambiance was top-notch and the drinks themselves were well-crafted, the service was a little slow and our server seemed disinterested. But, if you're a literary buff, you have to go at least once.

I wanted to have lunch at the Algonquin Round Table Room because of its historical significance, even though I had read reviews that said it was interesting, but not to expect too much in the way of good food. What a pleasant surprise! I and my friend had one of the best lunches on our trip to New York. I... More

Love the cozy feel of the Round Table Room -- great spot to enjoy pre-theatre drinks with friends! Despite being crowded, the waiters were right there to bring drinks and nibbles. Unlike some New York bars, you feel welcomed and appreciated at the Algonquin.

Wonderful place to chill out and soak in the early twentieth-century ambiance. Everything appears just as it did when Dorothy Parker belted down martinis and scotch there 70 years ago.

We had NOT been here before but we were excited because the history of the hotel and Matilda (the cat).

Beautiful room. Staff were friendly and professional - recognised some from my first visit. Lovely for breakfast or dinner. Although it's been refurbished its great to think of Dorothy Parker dining there.

We only tried breakfast and the service was painfully slow (75 minutes)! Very expensive as well. Did not try any other meals there.

Exceedingly slow service but good food. Get there early for dinner and ask for a table in the restaurant itself, not near the lobby, which is wonderful but full of visitors and not hotel guests.

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.
