The restaurant is conveniently located in the theater district, making it a great option for a big out prior or after a show. The atmosphere is great and the service impeccable. The food is good although my steak was a bit over cooked. In general a pleasant experience with decent NY prices.

An old name restaurant associated with Broadway that did not disappoint. The free range grilled chicken was superb and the mashed potato the best I have ever had. Knowledgeable and friendly staff and good atmosphere. Will certainly return next time we are in the area.

It is a very classy and good restaurant. The food is good, nice staff and really good looking. If you are lucky you might be able to see some celebrities. I saw Christian Borle, he eas sitting literally right besides me at the bar, and recommended the Ceasar Salad, which was great.

When you travel to NYC often you are looking for a good restaurant in midtown. My friend and I found it last week. I has passed this place many times but have never tried it. We planned on a light lunch because we were planning dinner out also. My friend had the soup of the day(mushroom barley) and I had... More

We usually try to go dinner here when we are in NYC. The restaurant is close to most Broadway theaters. The food is great and the service is usually superb. Go if you can get a reservation.

The restaurant has excellent food and very good service. It is a "casual" restaurant near Times Square and you need to book reservations in advance for any time prior to 8:00 pm (show time). Prices are reasonable for New York.

Great burgers, great atmosphere, a must for theater goers. Love the failed show posters that line the walls.

This little gem has been around since the 1960s and in my opinion, could use a face lift. Sure, its super convenient to the theaters and has historical actors' faces plastered on the walls, but it lacks anything special or new. The menu options are slim and decent tasting with average prices, and the staff is friendly (Im sure they... More
