The best in all New York!

Having been brought up in an Italian family, I never expect the food to be as good at an Italian restaurant as I have had at home.

I have been cooking chef Sal's recipes for years but never went to the restaurant until now. We had the lunch from the Prix Fix menu and tasted three entrees. Every aspect of the experience was great: the flavors, presentation, service, and atmosphere. I'll go again on my next N.Y. Visit!

My husband and I stopped in for lunch and were so pleasantly surprised by everything Patsy's had to offer. The atmosphere was warm and inviting and the service was superb. The bread basket was overflowing with fresh homemade bread while our meals were delicious. What impressed us most, was the owners warmth, hospitality, and humble nature. He took time to... More

We ate here on our first night in New York. Would be difficult to find had I not researched before we left, but luckily it was only one block away from our hotel. Only small downstairs but very authentic and old fashioned Italian. Brilliant atmosphere!! Food was really good, especially deserts which were brought around on a cart and you... More

Went to the museum for the Sinatra exhibit, and had to complete our trip at Sinatra's favorite, Patsy's! The food and service was excellent! One of the finest dining experiences in NYC!

Visited Patsy’s on recommendation from a work colleague in London and were fitted in late on in the evening for a meal. From start to finish, one of the best dining experiences I have had at an extremely reasonable price. The food was of great quality - I personally went for the Mozzarella to start and the ravioli for main.... More

We walked in at noon and were asked if we had reservations. We did not. There were few people there at that moment but it filled up completely after we sat down. The hostess took our coats and seated us. They had a lunch meal for about $30 per person that was delicious. It's soup or salad, a choice of... More

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.
