Just dreadful, over 45 mins for 1 shared starter, another 20 mins for main course, which guessing by the tempreture was ready before our starters. Honestly the worst dining experience I've had in many years.

This gets one star purely for our waiter who was very good, my family and I felt sorry he had to work here. Ridiculous prices charged for poor quality meals. Steaks even though cooked medium rare were as tough as old boots, dry overcooked chicken.The restaurant needs closing and a complete refurbishment. My daughter had the misfortune to use the... More

This is easily the worst review I have written so far, this place should be shut down, we made the mistake of thinking this place would be reasonable. We were shown upstairs by a rude member of staff, ushered to our table like naughty children and given a nice sticky menu to read. Ordered our drinks while we were having... More

This was our biggest mistake in New York. We were hungry and tired, so we decided to visit TGI's on 5th Av. Well... dirty toilets , awful food, overpriced and really bad customer service !! Waited almost 20 mins for drinks ( 4 beers ). So ... if you don't like your partner and try to push for divorce... this... More

We got in here because we were tired, jet lagged and hungry - and it seemed like the only place opened. Well, we would have been better off going to be hungry. Old tired decor, a bit like the staff, below average food, felt reheated and bland. One dirty toilet to be shared by male/female and probably stock, by the... More

Unfortunately I came to this restaurant after the Polish Heritage parade in 5th ave. Is a very old fashion decoration (looks from the old horror movies) The French Onion sucks, sorry "soup"

Based on other reviews I thought it would be awful. It wasn't. My guess is that it is not consistent. We went for lunch and ordered off the lunch menu. Not a huge selection, but much more reasonably priced. Food was good. Only thing that was less than standard was the salad. The chicken was fine, but the greens looked... More

The only positive comment I can make is that our waitress was very sweet was doing her best. We felt sorry for her for having to work in this poor excuse for a restaurant. Hard to believe that an international chain cannot control what is happening in one (or more) of their locations. A dirty, run down, poorly run establishment... 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.
