We ate at Bistro two days in a row with our family. The kids liked the Chicken Parm. The first night our service was tops. The second night we waited 10 minutes for our waitress to appear. When the assistant brought water he dumped ice cubes while pouring the water all over the table and never came back to clean... More

I've been in and out of NYC as visitor, student, resident and business traveler for 50+ years. I see the teeming hordes of tourists doing to the death march especially in midtown on 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th avenues. Not sure what travel books they are reading. For those who do find themselves in midtown there is hope. Go to... More

Pavement eating. Service a bit slow/confused- wrong water, wrong beer, ages to order (despite not being busy). But it was super friendly and it didn't deter our enjoyment. Food was ok- lamb was nice- but over seasoned and done with a heavy rather than light touch. Pizza was ok but scone base and a limited choice. Overall would go back,... More

We really enjoyed our dinner on the patio. The staff was very attentive and quickly moved us when it started to sprinkle rain without us asking! My husband & I both had the three course dinner. It was delicious and good value.

We were in New York for a few days visiting family. We stumbled on the restaurant and we were attracted to the Outdoor Seating. The food and service were very good. The Outdoor Seating Area is covered with Large Umbrella canopies, which gave it a cozy feeling. The menu is Italian based, with a unique way that it is prepared.... More

Restaurant was close to the hotel, so we decided to walk over. Fabulous food and service. We sat outside and it was so nice! Ordered pizza as an appetizer. Would love to go back and have it as a meal. Enjoyed great cocktails and wine.

I enjoyed my avocado, hearts of Palm and artichokeartichoke terrine. Halibut with pistachio crust was delicious. Really enjoyed the book choy and mushrooms. Service was a bit slow, as we had theater tickets, but got out in time

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.
