Stopped by for lunch and drinks during the holiday shopping in the Times Square area. This is a very large TGIF and a bit confusing to navigate. The service was really slow and pretty apathetic, the food was not hot and tasty as is typical at most TGIF's.

My friends and I stopped here to eat while waiting to board our bus. Very disappointed. Place was sooooo small. You could barely walk down the aisles. Service was ok. Prices were a little too expensive for my taste. I will not return to this location. All other tgi fridays I been too were great.

My daughter and I had the misfortune to visit TGI Friday last week whilst in New York. Service poor and the food terrible. Limited menu for veggies so had a veggie burger = horrible. Had to wait ages and high prices. Other visitors returned their meals as not hot. Would never visit again there or in England.

We were seated immediately for a late dinner at 8:30. Service was quick, the waiters were friendly. The food was ok...typical chain food. Portions were on the smaller size and the price was typical NYC...expect to pay $25 for chicken fingers and fries.

The restaurant was busy and crowded so we had to wait awhile (which was not a surprise/problem). Once we were seated and ordered it took a long time to get our food. However, once we finally got it, the food was delicious! We ordered pie at the end, and it came looking like a piece of art! Beautiful and delicious!... More

After a long day of sightseeing at nearby Radio City, Rockefeller Center and St Patrick's it is great to see a fimiliar place to dine. It's bigger than it looks and has ample seating.
