From the time we walked in to the time we left service was nonexistent. Waiter could have cared less about us. Never asked us if we had questions about the menu or explained the specials. Never refilled water glasses. Never came back to check to make sure our dinner was ok. We waited 20 minutes for the check to arrive.... More

This was my second trip to Patsy's. It was excellent both times. Great traditional Italian food, good value (you won't be hungry when you leave). Grandma is a tough critic when it comes to Italian, and she was impressed. So much so that she bought one of the Patsy's cookbooks on the way out. Thanks for a great dining experience... More

Brought my out of state colleague here for an authentic Italian dinner. I wanted to keep him away from the tourist trap that is little Italy. This restaurant pricing was rated $$-$$$ but I believe it should be $$$$. And be aware of the waiter's recommendations. They push very hard to sell you their highest priced dishes. $8 for a... More

This place is a typical generational family restaurant. You're greeted at the door by the owner. Patsy's son. The food is amazing. Service is good. If you buy one of their cookbooks, the chef and Patsys grandson Sal who'll come & chat. And sign it for you.

I cannot say enough nice things to say about this restaurant. From the way that we were greeted at the door to the way that we were seated was great. Pino was a great waiter and was able to give us the personal touch that we were looking for in the Frank Sinatra lore. I ate the way that the... More

Needed a place to meet old friends for a leisurely lunch and Patsy's was perfect. Excellent food and service in a classy, classic New York restaurant.

A group of 5 arrived there without prior reservations. A little mistake but the Maitre D was kind enough to find a table for us considering it is a crowded busy place which tells you something about it. Everybody is courteous and attentive. We ordered different plates. We all strongly agreed it was perfectly done. We had some room for... More

Classic NYC Italian restaurant, with excellent service, and a true family restaurant feel. The owner is 3rd generation I believe, and he was kind enough to come to our table to say hello and make sure our meal was good. After seeing him in some of the videos the restaurant has made, that was a real treat. Between the history... More

Very warm and inviting staff, and excellent service. Good variety of menu choices, and interesting off menu specials - burrata, peppers w/olive oil. Enjoyed the penne pizzaoli with sausage, very attentive staff - all around good experience.

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.
