Wow...... After 4 days in NYC, of exploring, walking, bussing and cramming as much in as possible, today we ended up searching for the CBS studios. After the trip around Brooklyn, subway ride to midtown and Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, and NBC we went on a walking adventure to find CBS. With hunger pangs setting in, we settled...

We visited after having dined there over 20 years ago. Service was good, food was tasty. Very busy. You get a good dinner for what are not crazy prices, considering it's NYC.

We stopped in to Patsy's this past Saturday evening for dinner. Despite being full they did the very best to accommodate us. From the time we walked into the door everyone was beyond friendly. Our service was impeccable. I can't say enough about how good our food was and the sauces tasted so fresh. We all finished our plates. The... More

We weren't dressed appropriately (jeans and hoodies) after walking through time square all day, but we were craving fettuccine Alfredo and no had reservations, but they treated us with respect, found us a table, and the meal was tasty and the service prompt. I love NY.

A great place, people are so friendly, 1st time there and felt like we go once a week! We did not have a reservation and they squeezed us in by chance. Gnocchi was fabulous and the veal was so tender it melted in your mouth. Dessert, o.m.g. - the best f od experience ever! Go!

Another of NYC's restaurants that was highly recommended to us. Again, we were not disappointed. One of the best Italian meals I have ever had. The service is second to none.

Having lived in NYC all of my life I had always wanted to go to Patsy's. I had heard about the great home cooked food and of course the relationship with Frank Sinatra. My wife and I were with another couple and he suggested Patsy's and of course we said yes....and am I glad we did!!!! We were greeted with... More

The best Italian food in the city. The staff can't be nicer warm and welcoming. Mama's meatballs, stuffed artichoke, eggplant rollatini, are wonderful. All the pasta dishes are huge and delicious. The dessert cart has yummy huge desserts. My favorite is the Neapolitan. We never miss a dinner at Patsy's.

Patsy's is a restaurant where people are greeted as they enter with a smile, handshake or kiss... our New York City go to restaurant, worth the trip without seeing a show! White clothed gleaming tables await as you are brought to your seat. The menu has so many outstanding dishes, choosing just a few can be a hard decision. Shrimp... More

If I were rating Patsy's on qualities other than food, they would have gotten a higher rating. However, it IS a restaurant, and one with a long tradition of famous diners, so I thought, "This ought to be over the top good!" Sadly, my meal was not. We were seated downstairs, and the atmosphere was old school, elegant Italian. Very... More

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.
