A DELIGHTFUL LUNCH OUTDOORS

Bryant Park while only a city block in size, has so many activities and places to eat food bought at the various kiosks. BUT it also has BRYANT PARK GRILL where you dine outdoors from April to November according to our delighful server Krista. You get the feel of Paris with all of the parisian type... read more

We went here on a lovely hot evening last week. The location is wonderful, lots of things going on in Bryant Park and the restaurant itself is beautiful. Often restaurants like this have location but not always the food to match and this is an example, in my opinion. The food was nice but could have been better. The menu... More

Went here for business lunch. The place was very busy, but reservations got us right in the door. We were seated in a nice general are with a window to see outside. The wait staff were attentive but unpolished. The Burrata was perfect!! Everything else that followed was good but average.

Reasonable food but expensive. Cocktails were good though. Staff friendly and attentive. Best thing about the restaurant is the location and setting, of course.

We went to this restaurant for a late lunch and what a delight. The atmosphere is sophisticated. We all had salads and they were generous and delicious. The service was prompt as it should have been as it was half empty. The location, overlooking Bryant Park is relaxing. We would go again.

We went for dinner and the food was incredible. The hotel itself is beautiful and in such a great location. The service on the other hand wasn't impressive. Twice my waiter asked my partner if he wanted something to drink and didn't even look at me. Also when we brought out the meals he gave us the wrong ones -... More

My first day in New York and most fortunate to come across this restaurant. Fantastic location overlooking the park, wonderful atmosphere, a great buzz and quality food at an excellent price. The service was more than pleasant and the suggested tip amount on the bill very helpful. I know for certain I would not get lunch at an equivalent location... More

Lovely place. Right in a park which is right in the middle of superbuilt blocks. The place is literally out of this world, creating an oasis of peace in the middle of New York mayhem. ‎Friendly staff at the entrance and at the bar. Slightly cold 'you are not from here' waiter. Very good food. Excellent place for a business... More

What a treat. I met a business partner here for lunch whilst in NY. The place is lovely, the park is wonderful tucked underneath a bunch of skyscrapers offering a contrasting perspective which is quite rare in NY. The food was very nice indeed. I started with the red and yellow pepper gazpacho, and had the smoked salmon and scrambled... More

Had a delicious lemon chicken meal. Sitting outside on the patio, dining under the stars was amazing surrounded by the beautiful tall buildings in NYC !

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.
