One thing I truly hate about a restaurant is when the lighting is so poor that you need a flashlight to read the menu. Such is the case at ViceVersa. The restaurant is set up nicely, but I have no idea of why there are only small spotlights scattered throughout the restaurant. With a large party of 8 people you... More

Excelente restaurant in all aspects: food, service and environment. Quite restaurante, excellent service, delicious food. Hot cake chocolate is delicious! It is difficult to find a quite and charming restaurant like this in Manhattan. Strongly recommend mainly for couples or small 'quite' groups. Very very good service!

We ate here before the theater and all agreed it was one of the best restaurants we've eaten at for a long time. Delicious Bolognese spinach lasagna, chicken and fish entrees. Excellent service.

We had a lovely lunch on our way to a matinee. We did the prix fixe lunch which had some interesting choices and a bottle of wine. Service and food excellent. Not crowded like some NYC restaurants.

I don't know what else I can say about the restaurant. I thing those attributes really sum up a good restaurant. I did not rate them excellent because I had nothing that truly wowed me, but that's okay. I would recommend this restaurant and I would return because you can tell that they are consistently good.

For most europeans, american food is too salty and from processed foods. We ordered the lasagna (25$) and some other pasta (15$) They could have been great but it was too salty.... Still overpriced. Restaurant is crowded and loud. 25 min waiting for the lasagna. Won't recommend

Vice Versa gives the theatre district a place to enjoy a wonderful meal, any time of the day. The simplistic restaurant has a distinguished blend of a traditional and modern ambiance that makes you feel at home. The service was outstanding, and the food exquisite. The servers are very knowledgeable and helpful when deciding what to order. Vice versa does... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
