Nice place to sit outside while taking in Bryant Park

Great food and service, sitting under the tall trees of Byant Park. Nice stop to relax before more sight seeing. Don't forget to check out the libary - beautiful inside.

Elevated just enough above the bustle of downtown New York. Overlooking the activities in Bryant Park. A really delightful restful experience after a solid day of sight seeing.

We ate outside, disappointingly the roof top was not open (on a Sunday night, go figure!) Service was efficient, but not that friendly (maybe the NY Way). Our food was delicious, even if we couldn't see what we were eating! Not just us were using our phones to check what we ordered. Our order taker was a bit slow on... More

I booked a table at the Grill for lunch on my wife's birthday. Our previous NY rips had all been in late winter/early spring when the park is not fully running or at its best. She always expressed a wish to enjoy the grill and outside bar on a hot summers day with some brunch and a glass of bubbly... More

This place was recommended by a friend. It was a nice day and we had a nice table for two outside, in the shade. The food was wonderful and a nice proportion size. Our server was very attentive and friendly. It was a wonderful lunch in a wonderful setting. It was a nice memory for my wife and me.

Very nice location, good food, excellent service. You can have dinner outside in a beautiful setting in the middle of New York, very close to Times Square, the New York Library, the 5th Av and Grand Central Terminal. Bryant Park is very beautiful. I found this restaurant expensive, but this is New York... I had the pan roasted branzino (and... More

First day in New York and we decided to visit the oasis that is Bryant Park in the middle of the bustling heart of NY. I booked in advance of the trip on the basis of other reviews and we were not disappointed. The restaurant handled our booking very efficiently and welcomed us on arrival. Our waiter, Thaddeus, was very... More

We went here on a Tuesday night in the summer. Back to the future was been shown on the big screen in Bryant square. The park was full and heaving with activity. We took a table outside to afford ourselves a view of the screen and what would have been a perfect evening was tempered by the quality of the... More

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.
