Take advantage of promotions, coupons or happy hours if that is the case to get a good value for your money. Additional to that is an average place with average food.

I had wanted to try this restaurant for a long time but was not impressed really. The food was good yes and the service also good but not worth the price we paid especially after experiencing some other better restaurants that didn't cost as much.

I went for breakfast and the eggs and bacon were really good but tea & coffee was not included! Great location, right beside the wax museum!

I have never seen restaurant charging 17% tip automatically for a group of 4 people. We (4 people) were there for a quick meal before the show in NYC (around 5pm). We ordered 4 dishes (they do not have 2 for $20 special as in other cities). OK, this is NYC but the dishes are all well overpriced. Spinach dip... More

Tried out this Restaurant at 42nd street with my friend during our last day in NYC. Our server was friendly and accommodating to our request of replacing all our fries to coleslaw for our ribs. The food portion was huge as usual But we felt that the taste of the food were just average. However, the food were served really... More

Food and drink delicious. Had the ham and egg omelette and a strawberry milkshake. The service wasn't too bad, I think the wait or was foreign so sometime misunderstood what we ordered. All in all an enjoyable meal.

Although we were seated quickly, things went downhill from there. Our server did her best to be nice; she really did. But, our food (grilled chicken, pasta and kids' quesadillas) took at least 35 mins to arrive. My grilled chicken was ice cold when it came. Our server volunteered to go heat it. (So, what were the cooks doing??) I... More
