We chose Patsy's because, rumour has it, it was Frank Sinatra's favourite restaurant. The food was excellent, as was the service. The din of conversations around us was like most higher priced restaurants in Manhattan... but what was lacking was music. We really thought we'd be dining to the tunes of the great Sinatra. Our mistake.

Recently dined one evening here at Patsy's. Had heard about this restaurant so decided to take the subway and give it a try. It is a 5 minute walk from the subway. Was a bit early for the reservation but was seated promptly downstairs. The maitre d' I believe was named Frank and we received splendid personal service from the... More

A nice selection of wines. We really enjoyed the pasta. There are a couple of particularly nice veal dishes. The servers are most efficient and helpful in making selections. The only surprise was the number of patrons dressed so informally. We did not expect to see guys in T-shirts and shorts. or someone with their ball cap on backwards. Perhaps... More

Terrific Italian food . Perhaps the best manicotti we have ever had. Wait staff very attentive. Upscale and slightly pricey for lunch even for NYC standards, but worth the experience.

My wife and I had planned on trying this restaurant as it has gotten very good ratings. We were in Manhattan and decided to stop by (no reservations) for a late lunch. We arrived around 2:00 pm and were seated right away. We ordered from the Prixe-Fixed lunch menu. The waiter took our drink order and then brought some great... More

Very good Italian food. Always delicious and fresh. Owner and staff are so nice. Group of 6 and we all had different food from pasta to seafood. Everyone walked out pleased and full. Visited many times over the years.

We were a party of 5. I had the stuffed artichokes. Words can not describe how wonderful they were. Just like years ago when food was real. My other people all had spagetti and meatballs. That too was wonderful. The meatballs just melted in your mouth. Forget about the cheese cake, it was sooooo good, I had a dream about... More

We arrived at the Grand Hyatt, hungry checked out Tripadvisor read the reviews and made the decision to eat there. The place is quaint and the food is really good and inexpensive. The portion size is pretty large so you may want to share some of it. We are travelling in August 2014, and will definitely eat here.

An excellent 'landmark' and old school italian restaurant in the heart of midtown. The food is superb, the staff is friendly and top notch and the ambiance is great.

Our family came down from Connecticut for the day the week we were in New York and we all enjoyed dinner at Patsys. It was a classic authentic Italian family atmosphere with nostalgic pictures around the restaurant. Service was friendly and very attentive for our group of seven people. We started with some appetizers for the table; fried calamari and... More
