Nice place, friendly staff but the service was way too slow. Waited over 45 minutes for a salad and avocado toast! Wouldn't recommend if your looking for something speedy!

Being greeted by a mature, attentive host is sometimes a rarity in Manhattan, but we were pleased by Jerry and his efforts to make us feel at home. Nice quality and good food choices for a chain. I would definitely revisit . Nice to be welcomed by someone who realizes guests are more important than checking a cell phone continuously!

We are normally big fans of this breakfast place but today we didn't have the good experience we expected. First the seating was bad - next to the restrooms - second we all had the soft boiled eggs but they were all cold and under cooked. We asked for one new one but it was also not good. Didn't bother...

LPQ is my favourite place to go when I'm around Bryant Park area or Midtown Manhattan. Always a great spot for a quick coffee or lunch. Staff is very nice! Organic coffee, delicious french sweets, avocado toast is very good. Perfect location for either business lunch, romantic dinner or to enjoy a cup of tea by your own. Pleasant experience... More

Have eaten here numerous times and it gets better each one. A great place to go when one is alone because they will seat you at a communal table where you will encounter folks from all over the world - the breads are fabulous and the soups, salads and flatbreads are wonderful as well. There are country French specials as... More

We stopped in for some sandwiches on a Saturday. The food was fresh and the service was good. The curried chicken salad was better than the ricotta fig and prosciutto which was a little underwhelming in taste.

Staff were friendly and super efficient, the food was delicious and we always love the confiture options on the table - various jams and types of chocolate spread. I had Eggs Royale with rye toast, coffee and orange juice - i would go again in a flash.

Having tried the 7th Av place for Breakfast and enjoyed it we went back to try lunch and were not disappointed. The Gluten Free options were great, breads, soups etc - the chicken melt is a must to have. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the setting good just over looking Bryant Park. the selections of Breads and... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
