Good reasonably priced breakfast

We ate here a few times for breakfast as it was very close to our hotel(Intercontinental Times Square).The breakfast is large enough to set you up for the day and the choice is good. For the price and location I think it was worth it.

Took 15 minutes to take our drink order and another 15 for them to arrive. Appetizers were served with no plates. We ordered 2 salads and a bowl of chili which took another half hour to arrive. The chili was served without a spoon. No one ever apologized for slow service or lack of cutlery. We have eaten here in... More

Stopped here on a Sunday evening for dinner since there was no waiting line to get in. Promptly seated but disappointed when found out all the advertisements for Happy Hour had the fine print of Mon.-Fri. only. Misleading I thought. Still ordered cold drafts that were refreshing. Waiter was slow to come to table and seldom checked on us. Never... More

Went here twice for breakfast....very good omelets and baked eggs. Extensive cocktail menu as well. Oysters fresh daily. Open late if you saw the opera or the ballet across the street at Lincoln center. Nice accommodating service.

My wife and I had dinner here on a Saturday night before the theater, & liked it enough to return for Sunday brunch. We arrived Saturday at 5:30, & boy, we're we glad we did. By 7, the place was packed. I had a dinner salad with chicken, preceded by a pumpkin squash soup, she had paella, and, relative to... More

Live music, awesome bartenders, and the manager is crazy friendly. The food is really great too--I highly recommend the sweet potato fries. This doesn't have the vibe of a hipster-trendy bar, but more of an energetic, neighborhood bar.

Staying in Midtown

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.
