Orso was recommended by our hotel as being a good restaurant in the area. It did not disappoint. Although we did not have a reservation they gave us a small, not so desirable table but within moments some people left and we were graciously reseated at a larger table in a better location. Our food was delicious. I had the... More

I dropped in last night for a solo dinner before the theater. Not everyone likes a solo diner but they treated me well. I was sort of out in the middle there and would have preferred a less conspicuous table but it was really ok. Had a half portion of gnocchi and short ribs and it was very good. Bread... More

We went pre-theatre. Started off with an ultra-thin delicious pizza as well as outstanding, complimentary white bean spread/bread. We had a delicious pasta and fish dishes for dinner. Service was excellent.

I went to dinner with a group of old friends at Orso. There were ten of us, which is challenging for a waitstaff. Our waiter was gracious, helpful and responsive. Letting us take our time to catch up and getting our orders to us when we finally ordered them. We shared parmesan bread with out drinks and it was delicious.... More

Found this restaurant walking down Restaurant Row. It was a day that they offered the fixed price lunch (3 course, limited menu). Had the mixed greens, the pizza fichi, and the affogato (gelato and espresso) dessert. The pizza had mission figs, gorgonzola, walnuts, prosciutto and arugula. It was a really impressive and distinctive combination! The salad was light and delicious.... More

This is an ideal spot for a romantic meal. Service was attentive and the closeness of the dining room's quarters is typical of NYC eateries - adding to the local flavor. Also a good spot for celebrity spotting.

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.
