I enjoyed the food here, the service was a little rushed. I really enjoy the selection you can get by having smaller portions and matching them with others. The price was very very reasonable for the location just off Time Square. The toilets were in an dismal state, very dirty, no toilet paper, one toilet was blocked. really let it... More

Had a set menu, which was excellent value for money, the coconut shrimps were big and tasty. The chowders were perfect. There were no prices on the drinks menu so we ordered tap water. Waitress really friendly and helpful. I must pre theatre.

We were told that Sharney would be our server, but the Nick showed up. The service was OK. It did not seem like he wanted to be there. He refilled my water and was somewhat attentive. The food was good and the atmosphere was nice. I went to the bathroom to wash my hands before the meal and it looked... More

It was poor. Service was slow food average at best. My steak (medium rare ordered) was medium well and tasted like I cooked it (that’s not a good thing). Green beans cold and overcooked. Most draft beers were out of stock and the one I did order was flat. Lobster was just OK. The best thing about the place was... More

Restaurant in the central area, very popular for demanding customers. Very good cuisine, excellent products, good wines, cold beer and other beverages. It is good to make a reservation before you come.

I was here for a quick meal before the Broadway show I had to watch. The place had a few tables occupied. Service was great, I sat at the Bar. Food and the beer came really quickly. Though I did not try any of their specialities.

We decided to try this place during our week in NYC.We both chose steak,my partner with lobster,myself with prawns /shrimp.It was really tasty.The place is huge,we ate upstairs.I had a couple of cocktails and they were like a dessert in themselves. This place is far from cheap,but we both enjoyed our visit so didn't grudge it.

The staff was very attentive and there was no wait for a table. There wasn't anything special about the food. A little overpriced for the quality but that's what you get in a tourist trap restaurant.

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.
