We decided to go to this restaurant with our kids for there first time in New York. Our kids really enjoyed themselves. The gift shop employees were very very nice. Once we got to sit down and have our dinner, the waiting staff was awesome. They joked with the kids and gave them great suggestions. We all love this restaurant... More

My partner and I visited in May 2014 and had a wonderful time! The food was delicious and very quickly prepared, and the cocktails were to die for! We had a Coronita and have been trying (and failing!) to replicate it ever since! The service was very friendly and fun, but it was the atmosphere of the place that made... More

It was, themed from Forrest Gump, service was great, I got cocktails and we got to keep the light cup for free... More

Not only is the location in one of the best cities in the world and therefore you have an amazing view of times square, but the food is just too good for words! The staff is friendly and one thing that I think is clever is they have a sign that says either "run forrest run" or "stop forrest stop"... More

This place is brilliant, amazing service, amazing food, and not bad prices!!! You have to go here if you're going to New York, it's an awesome experience and the food is great, not just a gimmick, I thought it was much better than red lobster for seafood! And service is obviously great :D

I love the movie "Forrest Gump" and this restaurant has pictures, objects and quotes from the movie. Also, the meals are named after people or things in the movie. When we came in we were greeted upstairs by a very happy and upbeat host. We loved him and he does his job very well. Also, the food was great! I... More
