Great restaurant with classic Italian American dishes. All the old favorites veal parmigana, spaghetti and meatballs but expertly prepared. I had tortellini with Bolognese meat sauce which was superb. Very welcoming cordial professional service. The only flaw was they handed us the check without asking if we wanted coffee or dessert which wasn't a big problem for us since we... More

Such a great meal! The best lasagna I've ever had. They really do make you feel like family. Sal and the entire staff are top notch.

Dined pre-theater. Nice to see staff dressed formally for dining service. Food overall good with a plus. Prices on higher side but the portions were surprisingly sizeable but not overwhelm. Expect at least $50 pp. Atmosphere and service was very good Nice pre-theater prix-fixe menu but you need to be hungry! Bar beverages were expensive. Would return. Note - Have... More

Saw many glowing reviews, so we were licking our chops when we arrived for dinner at this NYC institution. But we left disappointed. The food was decent, but I've had better. I had the veal rollatone Marsala, one of the signature dishes. For $39, I expected something better. It was good, but there was no "wow" factor. And the clams... More

Fantastic Italian food, Amazing & Attentive staff ...not to mention the one and only Chef Sal to make your night complete! He's warm, friendly and seeks to please every guest with his delectable choices! We took out a large group from work and all had a fantastic time. All went home with leftovers to enjoy the next day!

We dined at Patsy's after a show and had the most wonderful experience. They accommodated our reservation when the show ran longer than expected. The spaghetti and veal meatballs was among the best we have ever had. Everyone's food was very tasty and well seasoned. The service was excellent. Our host/owner, Sal, was highly personable and thankful for our business.... More

I made a reservation to Patsy's based on a recommendation of a family friend and was not disappointed! From the wonderful grandmother-type who took my reservation, to the visit to our table by the executive chef asking how we were enjoying our meal, the service and the food was fantastic! My Mom doesn't like sauces that are too spicy and... More

My husband and I ate dinner here recently. The service was wonderful, the food was tasty and well presented but rated #15 in the whole city? In our short four day trip we have enjoyed several meals much more, especially since this is not an inexpensive restaurant.

We dined here one evening as part of our trip from the uk. On arrival we were greeted by an older gentleman, we had a baby with us and there seemed to be a lengthy discussion about whether or not it was a problem between staff members. They said they didn't think they could accommodate for the baby and didn't... More

Hello, please allow me to apologize for the poor reception you received while dining with us. Please know we are always welcoming of guests with babies and small children; it was not our intention to make you feel unwelcomed. We were unsure if we had a table available to accommodate your party where we could place a highchair safely next... More
