We stayed at the W times square and this is the hotels restaurant. We went there for dinner, had no great expectations but it was delicious. I ordered the oysters, I liked them a lot more than the super famous oysters at Grand Central Station. My wife ordered the tuna and it was great too. Our waiter was really nice,... More

Great location for pre-theater meal. Excellent menu. Had an excellent halibut. Service was very good. We sat upstairs, which is a little less noisy than downstairs. Fairly typical scene for a W Hotel restaurant. I would definitely return.

We are making this our regular place when we go to the city for matinees. The food both times we went was fabulous…very fresh fish with wonderful presentation and accompaniments. And the service has been spectacular with attentive waitresses (like Adrian) and specialists to deliver bread, coffee and clean plates. The manager (Laura) is totally tuned into the customers making... More

What more can I say? Considering it was recommended by our concierge, I was doubly disappointed. The food was nothing extraordinary and the service was comparable. Should have known better but didn't honor my intuitive sense beforehand.

How many times can we actually ask for the breakfast sandwich 'without egg or cheese' making it a 'bacon only' sandwich ?? Must be tough to understand ? Maybe ?? First breakfast, just bacon, no sandwich. 2nd breakfast came exactly with egg and cheese, we gave in ...???!!!! Waiter didn't even seem interested.... Plenty better places.....

Blue Fin is in the middle of the theatre district, but is far above the average quality of local restaurants. As the name implies, seafood is the specialty, and it is fresh and well prepared. Nothing spectacular, but almost always satisfying. The reason this is very good and not excellent is the very large menu, which contains everything from a... More

Drinks here are not bad, although ridiculously expensive. The servers here are great to look at though, which I think is the biggest redeeming factor of this establishment! I've been here twice in the past year, and both times the servers looked like fashion models. However, that said, they also have the cool unfriendly attitude of the stereotypical model as... More
