I visited this location with my friend and must say I had a great time. The service was 5 star, food 4 star, waitress 5 star, greeters 5 star and overall location 4 star only because the set up could be better. Great evening had nonetheless would recommend this location to others, just make sure you make an appointment.

Excellent service from Jonathan! My mom is allergic to seafood and he handled that perfectly. The food is delicious. We were three and all of us enjoyed the meal. Très bon service et nourriture délicieuse.

Food of course is amazing . The portions are much bigger than were used to back home. The staff was excellent. Our waiter charged my daughters iPhone for us while we ate. Location can't be beat and is conveniently located right at the Times Square bus stop on Go Tour Bus. Very pleasant. Prices were much higher than home but... More

When reading trip advisor planning the trip, the board generally frowns upon the chains in TS. We were hungry and tired and didn't want to walk very far. Our food was excellent. Service was good. Cannot complain except is was a little pricey as we split an appetizer and split the main meal. Think we had 3 beer and it... More

This is a super-sized Red Lobster. After a 20 minute wait for our table (not a long wait) our appetizers were author very shortly after ordering. Food was plentiful and delicious!

Very friendly waitress food was brought out very quickly and everything was fresh and delicious. My husband who never eats sweets, still talks about the brownie he had for dessert and how sensational it was. I was too full to have even a spoonful

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.
