We had never been to Patsy's and decided to try it based on the other reviews. It was a very nice experience. Upon arrival we were asked if we minded being seated on the second floor instead of the first as there were no tables for two readily available and we said that was fine. On the second floor, which... More

We wanted to try a new place while in NYC, and Patsy's had some positive reviews, so we decided to give it a try. This is a really popular place, that was very busy. We decided to go early before going to see Cinderella at the Broadway Theatre. We arrived 30 minutes early, but they had no problem seating us... More

The food was excellent! The service good. We went at 5pm before heading off to a Broadway Musical at 7. Plenty of time to enjoy our meal and not feel rushed!

From the clams casino, through the veal chop to the homemade ricotta cheesecake, this was a great experience, especially the veal and cheesecake. The chef, Sal, came around to check on things. To thank him at the end, i sang part of an Italian opera aria fro Pagliacci. He had shown the cheesecake recipe on Tv, The Talk but I... More

I really enjoyed my time here with my family! The restaurant has a nice ambiance and the food is super. We tried their thin crust pizza, salad, pasta and calamari for appetizer. Love it...and the kids even eat all the spaghetti till the last crumbs :). The service is great, the staff are so attentive, especially as with 2 kids... More

I was excited to bring my wife here before out theatre matinee. We were warmly greeted at the door and Everything declined from that point on. Our waiter who does not belong in the customer service business took our order although he appeared to be upset that we didn't go with his appetizer recommendations. Perhaps we should have because the... More

Been coming here for the past 6 years and still find it to be the best traditional Italian restaurant in Manhattan. Frank Sinatra sure got it right back in his days. Service, Quality of food, Ambiance etc. Can't find a better one yet there after all these years.
