We visited NY at the start of february and visited the Byrant Park Grill as our only proper evening sit down meal during our trip and we wasn't disappointed at all - I've gone as far as to say it's the best food I've ever eaten. The chimicurri chicken was delicious. The food wasn't cheap - but I would also... More

I am sure I have seen this restaurant many times as I have walk by there a lot on my visits, but this was the first time I had lunch. Reservations were pretty easy to get, although by 12-1230 the place was full. Food is excellent, service is excellent. The view even in a snow was great; it is Bryant... More

I needed a lunch place nearby Grand Central Station and chose Bryant Park Grill. Usually a reliable choice. Decent food and super nice setting in the park. But either they were having a bad day, or Bryant Park Grill has done some serious backsliding. From a disorganized jam-up at reception, my guest was kept waiting there for ten minutes --... More

Sophisticated bar with top shelf choices and a great feel. It's right in the park, steps away from skating in the winter and outdoor relaxing in the summer. Stop for a drink after a tour of the library.

We booked a couples package at this restaurant after booking our dream trip back to NYC for New Year. It had really good ratings and feedback, it was a no brainer. The couples package, at a cost of $499 plus $50 booking fee, included a private table on the rooftop terrace, open bar all evening 8.30 to 3am, a bottle... More

The outdoor patio garden does not take reservations and seating is a first-come-first-service experience. With flights to catch we had no problem at 11:30 a.m. We shared their East coast fish and chips and the baby kale salad - Good. The service was not great. Finally went to the cashier to request condiments - vinegar, etc. Still we loved the... More

Situated directly behind the library and their twin lions it offers some very good food in a lovely location that is convenient to all sorts of public transportation. IT is especially nice during the holidays with the tree and all of the wonderful lights. I like this specifically for brunch on the weekends when you can linger. Service is very... More

Extremely cute restaurant, specially during christmas time as it has many decorations and lighting. I highly recommend going to the terrace, which is covered during the cold months, and allows you to see the ice rink from the distance. Imagine seeing everyone having fun on the ice while you are eating great food in the heat? Well thats what it... More

Tom the venue manager did a great job in managing the wedding night. Service was prompt and kept the night going as well. Tented outdoor space to the right was perfect to start the night off and picturesque background of ice skaters and winter revelers. Congratulations Tim and Yulei for a beautiful wedding!

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.
