Overpriced and food was not good at all compared to the excellent choices nearby. Service was not friendly and paid $28 for a pastrami sandwich with a few fries and a part of a friend's cheesecake - even for NYC, it was way too expensive. It has the name recognition and the location, but not the food or service to... More

The place is very well placed and we have hear that it was good. We walked in and were seated promptly, but a review of the menu revealed a 22.00 patty melt. We put our coats on. Left a small tip for the waiter for the inconvenience, and ate elsewhere. I gave it a very good review because of location... More

My fault for not reading a review before I went. I figured it was a diner..what could be so bad? First the hostess...did not give a nice or clean appearance. Basically throws the menus on the tables. They actually leave the bins for dirty dishes and silverware right next to the hostess stand (not appropriate), which of course we sat... More

My daughters and I went to Lindy's just recently for dinner on a weekend trip to NYC. The service was terrible.....slow....and the waitresses were confused about everything. They were unable to answer any questions that we had about the menu items and getting the bill was a real struggle. They were clueless. And, we cannot excuse them for being busy... More

It was just Okay. Nothing above or below good and not bad. Just average. Nothing to write about this spot, other than it being over priced.

We went because it was close to our hotel and appeared fairly popular. I ordered the Jaavk Nicholson and my husband ordered the Halle Berry, both with poached eggs. The coffee was served sloped all down the side of the cup, it dripped everywhere and the waiter didn't seem bothered. When our food arrived I ended up with a totally... More

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.
