Good food, great ambiance.

We had brunch on Father's day and even though the place was packed, the service was very professional, courteous and fast. I enjoyed the short rib Eggs Benedict and my wife had the regular one accompanied by several of their Grand Mimosas.

With so many restaurant choices in Manhattan picking a place for dinner can be almost as difficult as picking a Broadway musical to see. We're certainly glad we decided to give the Brasserie a try. The restaurant is very stylish with very cool lighting, a nice change from all of the typical diner or pub type establishments. We were greeted... More

Is a Monday at 530 the absolute worst time to go out to eat in Manhattan. Well it certainly avoids the Theatre crowd. But the Brasserie seems to have eluded all of Manhattan. The service is very professional, the place is a little days but it works in a Madmen kind of way. But they're was no one there. We... More

I haven't been here for years, this used to be great place for steak frites late late at night. They have turned the beautiful and stylish dining room into a set out of Barbarella. Tacky, cheap and cold. The food is mediocre at best. Service is deplorable, had to request a clean glass twice because the waiter kept on bringing... More

The Brasserie at the corner in Times square was not all it panned out to look like..great location,great view from the inside looking out and the decor was so classy chic....but the attention span of our server was horrible. He would come close enough to look and yet turn and run off...so this meant no refill or anything to even... More

Of all the steakhouses in NYC, leave it to this casual chic French restaurant to out-do them all. I keep trying to branch out and go somewhere else when I'm in town, but I can't. The filet is absolutely to die for. The staff is friendly and attentive. The place has a futuristic décor, what you'd expect if George Jetson... More

We dine in the city often, and thought we'd try this semi-rooftop restaurant above Eataly. There were four of us having lunch and we all felt the same about our food-tiny portions, but hefty prices, very limited menu. The service was average and it was very hot the day we ate there, with no ventilation. We were very disappointed and... More

Being going here since I was a kid, but it is now modern French. Very stylish space with excellent food choices. Great selection of fresh and healthy options. The service is great too. But it is really expensive, so this is perfect for a business meal.

I was going here over 30 years ago....more French and open much later back then; and, yes, the noise level here has not lessened very much; but the quality of the food and the warmth of the service cannot be overstated. If you're in the area and want a quick bite or a solid late-night meal....drop in, ask for Eric... 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.
