Really 4 1/2 stars.Would be 5 stars but I deducted one half star because the waiter grabbed the check out of my hand before I was really ready to lay it on the table as I was still thinking about the gratuity. In general the wait staff is excellent, however. Had the sausage dish and the flavor of the homemade... More

The restaurant has been around for some time and we could see why. It serves Italian food the way most of it remember it. Nice wine list and very good service.

Last weekend, my family and I were to Patsy's to celebrate my nephew's birthday. The meal was wonderful. I could tell because at the end of the meal everyone's plate was empty! Nothing left to take home. My nephew had a wonderful birthday dessert with a rousing chorus of Happy Birthday. We had a great time! Thank you Sal and... More

We have been honored guests at Patsy's for the past decade. We are from New York and come from an Italian Family. My job has taken me all over the country, but it never fails, when we return home to visit family, Patsy's, along with the terrific staff , are part of that Journey. The atmosphere, the food, the service... 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.
