I can't think of worse service or less caring management. My first mistake was going into a place at 7 pm on a Saturday night and not needing a reservation. If that didn't tip me off, the annoyed waitress should have. Did she really expect me to order a drink for a 14 year old? Food was fair. This is... More

Worst nightclub I've ever been to: Rude staff, no cloak room, expensive. I definitely will not go back.

We selected this restaurant because it is located near to one of the broadway theaters (we saw An Act of God). The restaurant was busy but not crowded. My daughter and I were seated immediately, at the back of the restaurant close to the kitchen. Not the best location, but it was okay. It became quickly apparent either the restaurant... More

Our last night in NYC and we decided on Mexican. We were seated very fast. Our drinks were very good but on the small side. We had the guacamole made fresh table side and it was outstanding. They had a lot of attention to detail to make it so good! Our meals came out quickly and they were delicious! Overall... More

Liked the service and the bar was fun while waiting for a table. Good food nothing spectacular but for Mexican food that is just fine with me. Nice touch when Mariachi duet serenaded my fiance and me with the romantic song

If you want to enjoy your evening with dinner and dancing, then you must go to Iguana for the best guacamole from scratch and the best selection of margaritas. The restaurant is lavishly decorated in bright colors as if you are in Mexico and great for large groups. The enchiladas and fajitas are tasty is you have room after munching... More

This place looks small and cute from the street, but once inside, it's like a beautiful oasis in the city. I love the soft lights embedded in branches lining the arches throughout. The furnishing is classy and comfortable, the lighting is romantic, the service is excellent, and the food, while not as spicy as I like, was so fresh and... More

We stopped in here because we were early for an afternoon Broadway show. It is in a great location. It was quiet around lunch time which was nice. The have a good selection of drinks and food. We ordered two different kinds of quesadilla's and both were excellent. They give you chips and salsa when you first sit down and... 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.
