We went to lunch at Patsy's and had a fabulous time. It is a very classy restaurant that has been around for 70+ years and that is saying something in Manhattan where places are really just a pencil sketch that can be erased at anytime. The service is old school which means that the wait staff tries to be seen... More

We are a couple of Canadians hearing about Patsy's for years. We have been taking regular trips to New York since 2002 and never seemed to get there. Well.......last year in October 2013, we finally went there for dinner. What an experience! We have eaten in some fabulous restaurants in our travels, but this one is by far the best.... More

Let me start by saying that we dined at Patsy's last year and decided to return the next night, since we had such a wonderful dinner. Forward to this year my husband used Patsy's again for his business dinner. We ordered 9 dinners and there was a problem with 2. My dinner was surf and turf which I ordered medium,... More

First time for Patsy's, saw some of the reviews about poor service.....didn't experience any of that.....staff was friendly and prompt. My wife and I shared the Fried Calamari and Veal Marsala.....both very good, Perfect size when we split it. I am sure there are better Italian restaurants in NYC, but this is convenient to the Central Park South area and... More

Be greeted by the "older couple" who front the house. This italian is in the 3rd generation of the same family. It has links to Frank Sinitra and has played host to many a famous guest. From the outside it looks small however there is more space upstairs. The food is fresh and excellent. Portions are generous but not over... More

This restaurant came as a recommendation, so we thought we'd try it for our last night in NYC. We were seated and handed menus, and we waited, and waited. My son noticed another couple who was also forgotten. Waiter had an attitude and limited patience. Plates of pasta start at $25.00 and entrees increase from there. Service should have matched...

I had friends in from out of town, who were looking for classic NY Italian food, so naturally I took them to Patsy's. They had fun looking at all the autographed photos of famous patron's on the wall, and the staff indulged us with stories about meeting some of the people. The wait staff is just great, and I can't... More

This restaurant shows one of very few the flaws of TripAdvisor: reviews and travelers comments are sometimes driven by a touristic perception of things and by volume. Patsy's average food, commercial wine recommendations and cliche Italian touch, definitely don't match its very high ranking (15 out of 11584 (!!!) at the time of this review). Touristic and not authentic place.... More

My name is Leah, and I live in Ontario, Canada. On my first visit to New York City, the concierge recommended Patsy's....We went for dinner that evening, and I fell in love! The ambience envelopes you as you walk in the door. You are greeted within seconds and seated right away(with reservations). The servers are very informed with the menu... More
