The atmosphere in here was fantastic. We were seated within 15 minutes (at 11am!!) so the restaurant is popular. Our server was lovely and when she was with us the service was great - but it was slow. We had to wait 20 minutes for an orange juice and our apps had arrived before the drinks which is never good.... More

I just visited Bubba Gump's for the second time. The food was awesome but the service was very disappointing. Not only was it rushed but my server gave the whole "Welcome to Bubba Gump's" song and dance to the table behind me while we literally got a "what do ya want?" No hello, No trivia, No smiles. I was with... More

Went here after all the hype by the reviews, was left a little disappointed after the food. was not much difference to a fish and chip shop really back home in the UK just much more overpriced. Service was good though on a plus point.

It's been years since I ate here & I am glad we came back. The food was served promptly and was excellent in taste. Really the only downside is the cost-expensive but this is NYC

Rubbish service, felt they were rushing us with our food so they could get the next lot of people in, by not offering us pudding by just getting bill but we requested it and it felt like it was a problem. My bf ordered a starter and our mains came out while he was eating his starter which was bad.... More

I ordered the pear salad w/shrimp. The salad was excellent but the shrimp over cooked so I sent it back. They made me a new salad w/chicken. Will have it again.

I absolutely loved Bubba Gumps. Let me start off by saying I am not one for chain type restaurants however I am a huge fan of the film Forrest Gump. I am in NYC often and I have been wanting to go to Bubba's for years however since I rarely ever find myself in the Time Square area it never... More

We have eaten at three different Bubba Gumps and liked all but this one. Perhaps they cut corners due to its location overlooking Broadway. My wife and I ordered fish and chips to share, primarily because at other Bubba Gumps where we have eaten one order was enough for two. When the fish arrived we were disappointed there were only...

The restaurant from the Forrest Gump movie. Very friendly and happy staff. Food is not bad and the service is quite quick. The view of the city is great and it gives you an opportunity of enjoying New York without the hassle. Not a bad bang for your buck. Try the coronita margarita.
