Lobby Restaurant - Short menu

Had dinner here while staying at Algonquin Hotel - menu is appetizer based but food and service were good - drink prices were a bit over the top

Absolutely the worst service, worst food (and this was breakfast) we have ever had. A cheddar cheese and ham omelet, was delivered as round 1, an onion omelet, 2, with a slice of ham, no cheese, and 3, ham and goat cheese. 3 strikes and you are out. Avoid if you can.

We went for dinner before the theatre. The venison was excellent! Not at all gamey or chewy! The crab cakes as an appetizer were served on a wooden board and looked and tasted very good. The staff is helpful and, if you ask, will give you a complete history and write up printed out for you to take home. They... More

I enjoyed lunch with my sister in January 2016. The menu had interesting items, and service was friendly and efficient. The butternut squash waffles are worth the caloric splurge!

This meal was good, but expensive. My son had Steak and I had the grilled cheese appetizer with tomato soup. Both meals were good. The little sandwiches were more bread than anything else, but tasted good dipped in the soup. My son loved his steak, but what 16 year old boy does not love steak. I am glad we ate... More

Our flight was delayed and we missed our reservation at Gramercy Tavern, so we defaulted to dinner at the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised! Very good and reasonably priced. Loved the chowder and pot pie!

Normally we skip hotel restaurants because their food and staff are not quality. Not so at the Round Table. We were greeted immediately the 6 times we ate there for breakfast and dinner. The service staff is very attentive and fulfilled our requests. We met the chef on two occasions who was jovial and great to talk with. The food... More

It should be a give-away when 3 women are seated at the table nearest to the kitchen door. We should have left then. We should have had a drink in memory of the famous Round Table literary crowd, and left. However, we decided to have dinner. The menu is just plain weird - Kahlua fava beans sums it up, I... More

Nice decor in the lobby of the Algonquin Hotel (which is now owned and operated by Marriott. Somewhat expensive but rather bland menu choices. Service is antiquated with old waiters that are bored.

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.
