“Consistent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

My wife and I had a kind of tradition to go to New York every year on our anniversary, everytime we have been there the service was good and the food even better, the whole restaurant also sets the atmosphere for a romantic night out. Everytime the vegetables and starch that came with the main meals was also very good.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

The food is great. Service has always been good. I have visited this restaurant whenever I am in Bloemfontein. I have introduced others to this restaurant and I have only had good reviews.

“Dine in Style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

If you need to have a special evening out in town this is really a must. Value for money and the food are excellent. After a evening out you would feel this was more than enough. The ambience with the theme of New York is wonderful in the Heart of South Africa

“Good food for the hungary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

The New York in Bloemfontein has become one of our favorite restaurants. The decor gives it the mid-town Manhatten feel. The food portions are generous; the waitrons knowledgeable and friendly.

Whether it is a group of friends or a business lunch, you won't be disappointed. My wife- who is partial to lamb chops - claims they are the best. For the vegetarian, the Veg Platter is good, giving the impression that the menu platters take their vegetarian customers seriously (good enough to order even if you are not a vegetarian! !)

Overall, a good eating experience that will have you returning . . . we have, several times.

“Great service but average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

On walking into New York you are welcomed with a lovely atmosphere, decor and artwork that really makes you feel you are in the "Big Apple". Service is good and the waitrons very friendly.

However, the food was a disappointment. To advertise their signature salad, the New York salad, as having "crab meat" only for it to be served and it includes small pieces of crab sticks, really cheapens what is in essence is a classy salad. The main was equally a disappointment in which corners seemed to have been cut with the sauce that seemed to have include powered Bisto ontop of a overlooked and dry piece of pork fillet.

The menu is extensive and suits all tastes but careful attention needs to be paid to the final details in their dishes so that their food can equal their great restaurant atmosphere.
